Sleep and Subconscious: Are Vivid Dreams Sign Of Intuiton? 

Slow-wave sleep, also known as deep sleep or delta sleep is a type of sleep that is incredibly important for overall health and wellbeing.

A vivid dream (also known as a “vivid hallucination.”) is an unusual dream where you feel as if you are awake and can interact with the dream or remember it later. People wondered “Are Vivid Dreams a Sign Of Intuition?”

In most vivid dreams, you feel conscious, but you are in a dream state. 

For example, when lucid dreaming, you are far more awake than in vivid dreams. Yet, you can also have vivid dreams during lucid dreaming.

However, people often wonder if vivid dreams are signs of intuition or if our subconscious mind wants to talk with us in the dream state?

  • The subconscious mind can be more valuable while vivids dream because of rapid eye movement. Also, what you dream about is essential.
  • When you where theta brain states, such as the Rem-sleep state, your dreams seem more real and vivid. 
  • Our dreams are sometimes scary and nightmares. It might signify a traumatic experience we hold in our subconscious. 
  • When we are deep-sleep state, we are connecting our intuition. The state of consciousness will drop.
  • You can control your dream via practicing. However, most people won’t try to control their dreams. 

When we wake up, our brain works consciously, and we are aware of our life because of adrenalin, and the prefrontal cortex is working hard. 

We have a high cortisol level, which has filtered most of the things we saw. We are using our conscious brain. 

So, we got the point.

There are tons of things that might be the cause of your dream. As we talk, your dream is affected by;

  • The way your perspective about the world, and behavior.
  • Your sleep state, brainwaves, body temperature, how much sleep, and shift-work
  • Your desire, fears, phobias, heart rate, and even muscle tones.
  • Your habits sleep pattern, napping
  • Nutritional level (B vitamins etc.), caffeine intake,
  • Melatonin production

And so on. Sleep mostly depends on these elements as well as vivid dreams. 

Different stages of sleep have different effects on people. The study of dreams is start to understand brain waves, alpha and their waves, states of consciousness, serotonin, melatonin, and sleep phases in the cerebral cortex.

Why do we dream? Because our phases of sleep mostly correlated with the biological clock. Dreamless sleep, sleep and dreams, rem phase, and brainwaves mainly depend on that sleep cycle.

Summary

Mainly vivid dreams can be a sign of intuition. But it doesn’t always like this.

For example, if you have vitamin B1 deficiency or magnesium deficiency, you can more likely experience a nightmare. 

If the dreams become weird, try to remember them. It might be physiological issues. 

  • The sleep cycle is essential; before falling asleep, try to optimize your sleep by improving melatonin production
  • Some people reported that using magnesium, zinc, and b6 vitamins makes people see vivid dreams.
  • Dreamless (NREM) sleep occurred in the brain waves in delta waves states.
  • Circadian rhythm is an essential factor when it comes to memory consolidation and vivid dream
  • Binaural beats can change brain waves. However, it might not work for everyone. 
  • The more you are in the rem stage; the more lucidity can happen. 

Vivid dreams sometimes can be good. When it comes to vivid dreams, you do not always need to be afraid of bad things. Some of them might be weird, but many dreams are not bad.

Sleep habits are important factors here. Time to sleep, how much you sleep, hours of sleep, hormones, naps, circadian, and even neurological state are essential factors in how vivid your dream is.
