Lake

The water of a lake symbolizes life, because its calm flow and natural movement links to our future. In contrast, the waters of a reservoir represent diseases since their violent movements are the result of artificial construction. In oneiric terms, the lake is a manifestation of the state that is our unconscious: if its waters are calm, it is a sign of inner peace; if, however, they are agitated, it indicates emotional disorders If vegetation covers its shore, the dream manifests inner wealth, creativity, and emotional satisfaction; however, if the banks are dry and rocky, an emotional disorder is evident. Finally, to fish in the lake demonstrates a desire to find companionship or a partner. If we see ourselves reflected in its waters, the meaning of the dream changes completely, perhaps reflecting a narcissistic attitude. (See water , stream , mirror , and fountain ) In Japanese Zen Buddhism, the lake is a symbol of the mind. If the surface is moving, you cannot see the reflection of the moon. However, if the water is calm, the moon appears. Similarly, the mind must be calm to perceive spiritual enlightenment.

Body reactions during sleep

Most of us must have experienced hallucinations or night mares. When we experience such dreams we are unable to move or react. This stage is referred to as sleep paralysis. This type of dream occurs in between wakefulness and REM. As it occurs during the REM stage, it causes complete muscle weakness preventing the individual reacting to the dreams.

Improve memory

Improving memory can be done in a number of ways, and one of those is by having a good night's sleep. During sleep, your mind is still busy and going through the process of consolidation, where it strengthen your memories as well as the "practice" skills, which you have learned while you're awake. According to the associate professor at NYU Langone Medical Center, Dr. Rapoport says that something happens while we are all sleeping, and it helps us learn things better. Thus, if you're trying something new, you can perform it better right after you sleep.
