A dream is one of the most pondered mysteries of life. Everyone experiences them whether they remember them or not. Dreams are a succession of images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that usually occur involuntarily in the mind during the REM stage of sleep. Any face that you see in a dream is from a memory that already coexists; so you can only see a face that you have already seen before. Studies show that they predominantly revolve around the emotion of anxiety including blind dreams. They are capable of having very vivid dreams involving their sense of smell, touch, taste and there feelings.Some people have the misconception that you don’t frequently dream, but if you are over the age of ten you generally dream 4 to 6 times every night. The reason for this comes from the fact that many people do not remember their dreams so they assume that they don’t have any. To remember your dreams you can keep a journal by your bed to record them. This is necessary due to the small frame in which you can remember quickly diminishes as the time passes, after five minutes go by 50% of your dream is forgotten and after 10 minutes 90% of your recollection is already absent. Many people feel that they spend days in there mind dreaming but in reality the length of a dream can widely vary but does not last hours it can be as little as a few seconds but regularly a maximum of 20-30 minutes. Dreams are awkward mix of your thoughts and emotions but there are many people who have lucid dreams. Lucid dreaming is when you have control of your dreams and you are aware of your unconscious and can decided what happens. Lucid dreaming can happen randomly or be induced by the person through various techniques.
