You're the healing dreamer! Your dreams serve as a message to you in terms of your mental and physical health. The Ancient Greeks used to refer to these as "prodromic" dreams, in that they were very telling of what was to come. These dreams can help you to deal with potential problems or heal from a serious issue, such as grief.
The Healing Dreamer
You're a lucid dreaming type! These are the types of dreams where you realize your dreaming. Vivid and realistic, it feels as if you are completely steeped in this dream state. As a highly spiritual and intuitive person, your dreams serve as a guide, a way to connect with a different world. Though sometimes scary, lucid dreams put you into touch with something far outside of yourself.
The Lucid Dreamer
You're the daydreamer type! Did you know that people often daydream between 70 and 120 minutes a day. Daydreaming is actually a state of being between sleep and awake. It can occur at any time, but especially during our waking hours. As someone who often lets your imagination carry you far away, you are stepped in a rich world of fantasy.
You're the recurring dreamer! Ever had a dream that felt so familiar it was like you've had it before? That's because you have. Recurring dreams always repeat themselves with little in the way of variation or theme. Though often positive, your recurring dreams can also be quite dark or nightmarish. Recurring dreams often stem from unresolved problems. Solve the problem and you'll end your recurring dreams!
