5 Big Dreams

There is a term in dream-study called Big Dreams: these aren’t like kinda sketchy super-symbolic vague wisps of dreams, nor are they nightmare-filled anxiety dreams, or even yummy sort of wish-fulfilling dreams. No, Big Dreams are, as it the name suggests, BIG DREAMS. Archetypal dreams. Dreams that change your life. Dreams that you sometimes can bring back to the village and maybe tell the others over a fire or perhaps turn into a video game or something.

Here’s a personal observation I’ve made over numerous occasions…but I didn’t even want to believe the conclusion. And that is: sleeping either listening to my iPhone (you know, to meditative music or a podcast) or having my iPhone even near me (by the pillow/on the bed) greatly messes up my dream quality and recall.
