Dreams Give You Superpowers

Staying positive and upbeat is easy when things are going well, when things are going your way, when life is easy.

But when life is hard, staying upbeat can be next to impossible.

That’s why having dreams are so important. Pursuing a dream is the antidote to despair or negativity. Dreams give you hope. They give you clarity. Dreams endow you with a special lens, with a special power to see into the future – your future.

When you’re focused on your future destination, the problems of the present are mere stop lights, yield signs, curves, bumps, detours, or potholes that almost every commuter  encounters on their way to work, without giving them much thought at all.

Knowing where you want to go supercharges your brain. It opens up areas of the subconscious mind, that were previously dormant or not functioning to their full capacity:

  • Identifying exactly where you want to be in, say, five years, activates the Reticular Activating System (RAS). The RAS is part of the subconscious brain’s Limbic System. It is the brain’s radar system – taking in targeted stimuli from the environment, via the five senses.
  • Clarity also supercharges the Thalamus. The Thalamus resides just above the Brain Stem, the oldest part of the brain. It is intricately connected to the Basal Ganglia (part of the Limbic System and the hub of habit formation) and the cerebral cortex (the most advanced and modern addition to the brain).

The Thalamus, along with the RAS, then begin to work together as a team searching for clues within your environment that help to subconsciously guide you to the correct path you must take.

    Brilliant post! This explains what other authors write about, but never really substantiate.
