Worry (Elements of dreams) #AtoZChallenge
Worry can influence what we dream and the subconscious can introduce worry into the dream story line. There is a reasonable probability that our worry from waking life carries over into our dreams and is transmogrified into a new kind of dream worry. However if that waking life worry is powerful enough then it will probably show up in the same or similar manner as we had experienced it in the original incarnation.
Sometimes a reimagined or newly invented dream worry can vex us to the point were we might wake up with that same worry on our mind. We might not remember what it was in the dream that caused our worry which at times can become even more troubling in the first few minutes of being awake. As we gather our senses we realize that the worry has been induced by a dream story and is not real.
There is probably little doubt that any worry in dreams is rooted in an actual concern we have carried over from waking life into our dreams. As is usually the case with dreaming, the subconscious attempts to analyze the worry from waking life and find a possible resolution. If no adequate answer to the worry in the dream is found then we are left with the original worry though perhaps it may have been mitigated to some degree by the act of trying to analyze it.
Do you ever dream about being worried about something? Do you ever wake up worried by an idea that was introduced in a dream? How often have you lain awake in bed worrying about some issue in your life?
