Dr. Nereida Gonzalez-Berrios, MD, reviewer and certified psychiatrist of ThePleasantDream commented, “many dream experts believe that dreams are a way to help our brains process all our thoughts and the events we had in the day. They also represent our unconscious feelings, enhance our creativity, or reflect our real life.”
She adds, “losing dreams could also occur if such instances are happening in the dreamer’s waking life. For example, owing to the recession, they fear losing money, or probably due to war, they dream of people losing their lives. So, all this boils down to the events happening in waking life. Probably they are trying to seek solutions through their dreams.”
