Why are dreams so much more emotionaly charged than real life?
I woke up the other night, as an example, because I was having a dream about a few people who have recently died. They had come to visit. They were acting OK, but when I woke up I still had this horrible deep feeling in the pit of my stomach. It was sickly intense and scary. If I try to explain it, I almost cant find the correct words to do so. It is as though the feelings are multiplied a thousand times.
When I think of these things now, in the present, I don’t get those deep disturbing feelings. Are they all bottled up inside of me? If so am I operating from a base of deep dark horrible feelings? That I have harbored away. How do I cathart these feelings if they are?
I also wonder at the content of dreams, I had one particular dream that was so bizarre, so strange and completely out of my frame of reference. It was many years ago, and I was shocked to see almost a replica scene in the movie Hostel. Some 20 years before the Hostel movies existed. Any thoughts on all this?
