Today's post is a bit random, but I thought I would share with you an app that I use quite regularly on my iPhone called iDream. This app is perfect if you're interested in decoding your dreams, keeping a note of them and generally unlocking what is going on in your mind whilst you sleep.
I know people can be skeptical about whether dreams mean anything or whether they are just a way for the mind to organise information in your subconscious whilst you sleep. But personally I believe that if you remember a dream, it has some relevance to your every day life. When I use this app it generally confirms that.
It is simple to use. You pick a theme that was prominent in your dream, whether that be an object or a person or a feeling, and search for it in the dream dictionary. There you will be given an extensive explanation of what dreaming about that person, object or feeling could mean.
In addition, there's a section of the app called the dream journal where you can make note of what you dreamt about and so can check if there are any correlations over a period of time.
I find this so interesting and creepily accurate sometimes. It might be a load of baloney but I still find it enjoyable to try and decode what my brain is doing whilst I'm sleeping and perhaps letting that help me with what I need to work on, improve or look out for in everyday life.
You could look at the dream dictionary as a personalised horoscope in a way, using your own thoughts to predict what is happening in your life right now.
Either way, whether you believe in it or not, it's definitely fun - and it doesn't cost a penny. iDream is the best free dream dictionary app I've come across. So if you're curious about testing it out or want to make note of your dreams in a serious light, it won't cost you a penny.
