Witch

Originally, witches were priestesses who possessed great wisdom and healing powers. With Christianity, witches began to get a bad rap, so, in dreams, they are associated with the destructive part of the unconscious. That is, with those feelings caused by the repression of your true self (moodiness, disappointment, jealousy . . .). For children and adolescents, this dream reveals unfulfilled desires and a fear of the unknown and mysterious aspects of life. In turn, for an adult it indicates the possibility that someone close attempts to take advantage of you for their own benefit. In general, this dream is a warning that obstacles and problems will soon appear in your environment, whether at work or in your personal relationships. Witches often presage diseases.

Interesting facts

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.

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.
