Salt

Salt symbolizes conservation. If it appears in dreams, it could indicate that your ambitions are stagnated and immobile. Generally, it would be convenient to abandon passivity and try to nourish your dreams. The dream reflects that you live too conservatively. On the other hand, salt in dreams could also have other meanings, such as the spiritual essence of life: preservation and indestructibility, what remains after the decomposition of the body. It may also refer to sadness or to the subconscious, as it is in tears and seawater. Lastly, if you are offering or receiving this product, it is a sign of friendship. Salt has been used throughout history as a symbol of spiritual illumination. When it is mixed with water and the crystals are dissolved, the salty taste remains. The same occurs with the soul: the individual can die or disappear, but the essence remains intact.

Do blind people dream?

Dreams in blind people depend on the nature of their blindness. Individuals who have born blind will not have visual dreams instead they have night mares, most of them revolving around their challenges faced during the day. They experience dream through their sensory inputs like touch, smell, noise and emotions. People who were blinded after birth can experience visual dreams based on the visions or images that they have seen.

Types of sleep

There are two types of sleep that most of the humans undergo - REM and NREM. REM refers to the Rapid Eye Movement and NREM refers to Non-Rapid Eye Movement. Every individual will alternate these two types of sleep. Non-REM sleep will occur for a short period of time in the first stage of your sleep followed by the REM sleep. Dreams occur during the REM stage, where it lasts for 20 minutes. According to a researcher, J. Allan Hobson, dreams that occur in REM stage are usually forgotten when the individual wakes up. Studies conducted on patients during sleep shows that the frontal lobes in the brain, that are responsible for storing information, are inactive during the REM stage, which is the main cause for forgetting the dreams. Studies also show that this is the stage where you have the most intense dreams.
