Dreams and Phobias: Why Do People Have Them?

By Gunner Glam

It is hard for human beings to go long without sleep and when the time comes it is off to dreamland.

When the lights go out and something goes “bump” or climbing a high cliff and looking down can develop phobias on both conscious and subconscious levels.

Studio Brow wants people to not be afraid of realizing their dreams.

In dreams, the rules of reality tend not to apply.

Mysterious and fascinating, understanding dreams helps people gain a more clear view on personal relationships, an unfiltered view of real feelings and more wholesome perspective on life issues.

Dreams are unique for each individual, as no one else can have another’s background, emotions or experiences.

Every dream is connected to a person’s own “reality” and interpreting dream is important to draw from personal life and everyday experiences.

Dreams have the influence to unify the physical body, mind and spirit. They provide people with insight into the individual self and help explore there.

There have been laboratory studies, which have shown that humans experience the most vivid dreams during a type of sleep called Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep.

During REM sleep, the brain is very active where the eyes move back and forth rapidly under the lids and the large muscles of the body are in a relaxed state.

REM sleep occurs every 90 to 100 minutes, making it occur about three to four times a night and lasts longer as the night goes on.

The final REM period may last as long as 45 minutes. Less vivid dreams occur at other times during the night.

Phobias on the other hand are a form of anxiety disorder, that tend to be a strong, irrational fear of something that poses little or no actual danger.

For people there are many specific phobias, such as Acrophobia is a fear of heights, where someone may be able to ski the world’s tallest mountains but be unable to go above the 5th floor of an office building.

Phobias are prone to develop usually when people are young and something has effected them.

When people are young, around ages one though five, their minds fabricate ideas to cause them to make something simple seem scary, that can stay with them for life or could forget about it.

At times people cannot remember why they have the phobia,  just that they have one.

There are evolutionary theories that suggest phobias are in human genes and come from past lives. For example the fear of snakes or spiders could arise because human ancestors used to fear these creatures that were a central danger.

Nightmares can be considered the merging of dreams and phobias.

Common among children and fairly among adults, nightmares are are often caused by stress, traumatic experiences, emotional difficulties, medication or illness.
