  4. 4. Daydreams • Classified as a level of consciousness between being asleep and awake • Scientifically proven that we daydream, on average, between 70 and 120 minutes per day • Sometimes overlooked as wandering thoughts • Occur while we are awake  When we let our imaginations take us away and we “lose ourselves in our fantasies” • Content inside daydreams are helpful to the understanding of your goals and true feelings • If you daydream failure, then it (failure) is more likely to happen • If you daydream success, then it (success) is more likely to happen
  5. 5. False-Awakening Dream • Has anyone in here ever woken up, gotten ready for school, left home for school, and then woken up again, this time for real? What do you think this type of dream is called? • When you dream that you wake up and get your morning started and then wake up again for real
  6. 6. Lucid Dreams • Lucid dreams occur when you realize that you are dreaming. • Dreamers have come up with ways to remain in their lucid dreams. They then proceed to control them, making what ever they want happen. • ½ of all adults claim to have had a lucid dream. • Flying is associated with lucid dreaming.
  7. 7. Benefits of Lucid Dreaming • Inside a lucid dream (if you are controlling it), you can confront any threats you have, becoming self-confident. • When you lucid dream, you can practice for a game, rehearse for a speech, fulfill your fantasies, or even solve a problem from your waking life. Brain activity during a lucid dream and real life are the same, so doing any of the above is just like doing it when you are awake.
  8. 8. Nightmares • • • • A disturbing dream After, you wake up frightened Can be responsible to real life trauma Fall under a category of PSN (Post-Traumatic Stress Nightmare) • Also occur because you have chosen to ignore a certain life situation • People who have a family history of psychiatric problems, are involved in bad relationships, or have done drugs get these.

  14. 14. Prophetic Dreams • Dreams that tell the future • I KNEW THAT YOU WOULD PICK RAINBOW! • One theory of this is that human minds piece together facts (that we may overlook while we are awake) and figure out how they relate together and what their outcome will be

  21. 21. We’ve covered a lot of information; are there any questions?
  22. 22. Part 1 Scenario You are all aspiring dream interpreters. You are currently in dream college. It is the day of your final for the year. Your professor has decided not to give you a test; instead he decided to give you a teamwork/ dream exercise… A SCAVENGER HUNT!
  23. 23. Teams Each table is its own team: Table One- Team One Table Two- Team Two Table Three- Team Three Table Four- Team Four Table Five- Team Five Table Six- Team Six
  24. 24. Area
  25. 25. Procedure 1) You will all be given brochures with information about dreams, but some of it will be missing. 2) You must go outside with your team and fill in the missing information. 3) The first team in here wins!
  26. 26. Making it More Complicated • There can only be one group at each piece of paper. • You must be at a station at all times (except when you are walking to another one) or you are disqualified. • NO ONE may split from the group. If someone does, the whole group is disqualified. I will be watching, so don’t cheat. Once a group finishes and gets approved by me, they will also be walking around making sure that everyone is being fair. Once another group finishes, we are done and will come back in here to check answers. • Ready, Set, GO!!!
  27. 27. Part 2 Scenario You passed your exam! Congratulations! You are now world famous dream interpreters for musicians. You love what you do, and dream interpreting is your life’s work. You are faced with two cases one day. Here they are…
  28. 28. Case 1 Eddy Van Halen (member of “Van Halen”) comes into your office. He tells you that he had the most peculiar dream: flying with the Blue Angels (a group of professional pilots that put on shows for people). He and his band, “Van Halen,” made a song and video about it. He asks if he can show you the video, and then asks you to tell him everything you know about his dream.
  29. 29. Case 2 Zachary Barnett (the lead singer of “American Authors”) walks into your office right as Eddy Van Halen leaves. He asks you if you’ve heard his newest song, “The Best Day of My Life.” You say, “Yes, I have. What about it?” He replies, “I based it off of a dream I had. This is what occurred:” I had a dream so big and loud; I jumped so high I touched the clouds. Wo-o-o-o-o-oh. What type of dream is this? Who knows why? What else could it be? Why?
