Where is the Information of our Dreams Stored?

Everyone dreams whether they remember or not.  The purpose of dreaming isn’t exactly known, neither its interpretation, but this article today, is more focused on where the information of dreams is stored.

It is a common belief that events from the day often invade thoughts during sleep, and people suffering from stress or anxiety are more prone to have frightening dreams, but there is more to this than meets the eye!

To give you a wider understanding, let´s first review the four sleeping phases or stages:

According to the NIH (National Institute of Neurological Disorders – U.S.A.) there are two basic types of sleep:  rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and non-REM sleep (which has three different stages).  Each is linked to specific brain waves and neuronal activity.  You cycle through all stages of non-REM and REM sleep several times during a typical night, with increasingly longer, deeper REM periods occurring toward morning.

Stage 1 non-REM sleep is the changeover from wakefulness to sleep.  During this short period (lasting several minutes) of relatively light sleep, your heartbeat, breathing, and eye movements slow, and your muscles relax with occasional twitches.  Your brain waves begin to slow from their daytime wakefulness patterns.

Stage 2 non-REM sleep is a period of light sleep before you enter deeper sleep.  Your heartbeat and breathing slow, and muscles relax even further.  Your body temperature drops and eye movements stop.  Brain wave activity slows but is marked by brief bursts of electrical activity.  You spend more of your repeated sleep cycles in stage 2 sleep than in other sleep stages.

Stage 3 non-REM sleep is the period of deep sleep that you need to feel refreshed in the morning.  It occurs in longer periods during the first half of the night.  Your heartbeat and breathing slow to their lowest levels during sleep.  Your muscles are relaxed and it may be difficult to awaken you.  Brain waves become even slower.

REM sleep first occurs about 90 minutes after falling asleep.  Your eyes move rapidly from side to side behind closed eyelids.  Mixed frequency brain wave activity becomes closer to that seen in wakefulness.  Your breathing becomes faster and irregular, and your heart rate and blood pressure increase to near waking levels.  Most of your dreaming occurs during REM sleep, although some can also occur in non-REM sleep.  Your arm and leg muscles become temporarily paralyzed, which prevents you from acting out your dreams.  As you age, you sleep less of your time in REM sleep. Memory consolidation most likely requires both non-REM and REM sleep.

Contrary to a prior belief, dreams occur in all stages of sleep, but they seem to become increasingly fragmented as the night progresses. In general, they appear to be constructed out of an assortment of prior experiences, or memory fragments such as  places we’ve been, faces we’ve seen, situations that are partly familiar, or problems we’ve taken to bed and fell asleep with.  These fragments can either be pasted together in a semi-random mess or organized in a structured and realistic way. The dreams that occur in non-REM sleep tend to be shorter but more consistent than REM dreams, and often they relate to things that just happened the day before. REM dreams that occur early in the night often also reflect recent experiences, like the problems taken to bed mentioned previously, but they are more fragmented than their non-REM counterparts. Usually the dreams occurring just before waking up are the ones easier to recall.  

There is a common belief that the stories, or information, contained in the stories inside the dream is stored somewhere in the mind and there is some contradictory information as to the location of the mind – some say it’s in the brain; some say is in the heart as well as somewhere outside the body, right above the head.

The brain is the central processing unit of the body and plays a key role in translating the content of the mind – serves as an interpreter of the thoughts, feelings, attitudes, beliefs, memories and imagination. The relationship between the brain and the mind is complex and does not, to this date, seem to be unified by all the scientific community.

Where Neuroscience does not complete the information I need, Quantum Physics and Metaphysics sometimes does – but – even when all the information is not totally clear or not enough, I usually say: “let me check with my upstairs library”!  And you may ask: - What is or where is your upstairs library?

My upstairs library is my Akashic Records Storage!

Akashic Records? What is that?

The Akashic Records is an intergalactic source of endless files that consist of every thought, word and accomplishment of every living being, from all times; past, present, future, from every single lifetime. This “library” holds all the records of each soul’s journey through the infinite time space continuum; it really holds and stores all the information we usually don’t remember but revisit through our dreams, and or, meditation,  so the answer to where is the information of dreams stored, is in the Akashic Records.

Much Love and Light!
