It is common for many people to wake up from nightmares every now and then. Oftentimes, nightmares cause disturbed sleep and may be experienced by both adults and children.
Although children are more prone to nightmares beginning the age of 4 to 7, many adults also experience nightmares ranging from the mild ones to the more intense.
Nightmares and your thoughts
According to Edgar Cayce, evil thoughts can take shape and end up disturbing us.
If you believe therefore in evil or that it can harm you, it possible for you to create it, especially in your subconscious. This is why nightmares occur for many people.
This is why if you or your loved one is suffering from nightmare attacks, thought control is very important.
If you fear the nightmare even more and get panicked, your nightmares could very possible worsen. Oftentimes, the very evil that you fear is the one which your thoughts give life to.
Nightmares and specific fears
However nightmares can also sprung from deep seated fears.
Oftentimes people who have fears of being abandoned or rejected can have recurring nightmares of abandonment, being left behind, or being abducted. Also, if you have dreams of having arguments with someone in your sleep, this strongly suggests that you fear the relationship, either due to mental or emotional issues.
Oftentimes, nightmares involving death does not always mean that you are going to die. It could be a sign that a relationship has ended, a job has been terminated, or that anything significant to you has been removed from your life.
Nightmares can be beneficial too, if the individual who experiences them chooses to face his fears and conquer it.
Dreams or nightmares often reflect what is in the subconscious, although the conscious mind may try to evade them or choose not to deal with them.
