Daydreams are a perfect example of auto-hypnosis. When you daydream you have put yourself into a natural state of trance, allowing for creative imagination, relaxed contemplation, and productive problem-solving.
Dreams occuring during sleep provide a means for our unconscious mind’s to communicate a distinct and personal message to our conscious mind. When we have a dream, we are often fascinated by the symbols, and are interested in determining their meaning. We instinctively know there is something deeper than just the haphazard, and oftentimes, bizarre, imagery that is presented.
