Dreams, brains, and eyeballs in your neck

Dreams are illustrations . . . from the book your soul is writing about you.” ~ Marsha Norman

The problem with dreams is you can’t control them. Well, yea, in Inception you can, but this is real life. So what do you make of the 100lb. tortoise you saw in the bathtub, or the mad woman you saw sticking her bloodshot eyeballs into your neck?

It’s quite possible that:
a) You are crazy.
b) You’re only a teensy bit crazy.
c) You’ve just watched a horror movie before bedtime.
d) Your digestive system is sending messages to your brain.
e) Your spiritual side is more receptive to messages at night.

Let’s explore each possible thought.

a) You are crazy.
If you can’t talk to people but you do spend your days talking to the walls, your teddy bear, or your dead mother-in-law, then this possibility is probably not just a possibility.

b) You’re only a teensy bit crazy.
You don’t like black olives or chick flicks or soft brie (drool). Again, probably not just a possibility.

c) You’ve just watched a horror movie before bedtime.
(See my finger wagging in your face.) Didn’t you ever listen to your mother growing up? You bring to your bed everything that has been in your head for the previous 3-4 hours. It’s like eating food before bed—it’s undigested. The images and storylines in your brain have been unprocessed, and so your poor cerebrum has to try and put everything in the right place while you sleep. This explains why an old hag’s eyeballs land on your neck, or you freeze right when Taylor Lautner jumps on you. (For some of you, this may not be horror movie material. I’ll pray for you.)

d) Your digestive system is sending messages to your brain.
See point c about listening to your mother. All of your blood is focused on trying to digest your food, which leaves very little help for the brain. Your brain ends up yelling things like: whisygabbashabegignog . . . yes, not the most enlightening dream.

e) Your spiritual side is more receptive to messages at night.
This is especially true for the fixers in life, because their mouths and brains are galloping every second they are awake. The eyelids close; the comfy spot is shuffled into; the messages to self (and others) get slower and slower; the deep sleep phase passes; the dream state begins.

I think most dreams with a message come to us when reasons a-d are not in play.

So where do these meaningful messages come from? What do they mean?

  1. STOP TEASING ME! I may be more than a teensy bit crazy.

  2. I’m definitely NOT a teensy bit crazy–everything else is a fair guess.
