At one time or another we find ourselves having the same dream that we’ve had before. Recurring dreams can be both good dreams as well as nightmares, and we are often puzzled by why we keep dreaming of the same things. Here are three main reasons why we have recurring dreams:
1. Information not processed. Dreams are our minds way of processing information that we are unable to do while we are awake. Our minds work through a variety of subconscious emotions while we sleep, in the form of our dreams. Recurring dreams often happen when this processing of information and emotions is incomplete. Going back to the same dream or dream theme over and over is our minds way of re-visiting a piece of information and continuing to work through it. Sometimes this happens over a short period and other times we can be processing emotions for years.
