"What if nothing exists and we're all in somebody's dream? Or what's worse, what if only that fat guy in the third row exists?" - Woody Allen
Last night I dreamt my ceiling fan kept falling on my head and it hurt but didn't knock me out so I kept hanging it back up. - Candice 32, Middletown, NY
Lauri: What's been "hanging over your head" in real life? Any issue or thought that's been on your mind recently? Something that you know you eventually need to take care of but don't necessarily want to? I think the way the fan kept hitting you is the way your dreaming mind is trying to get it in your head that you need to take care of this rather than allowing to continue to hang over you AND before it “spins” out of control.
Candice replies: This absolutely makes sense! I have money and family issues hanging over my head. Thank you!
Lauri replies: So the message from your dream is, take care of this already, "it won't hurt," just as it didn't hurt when the fan fell on you. So snap to it, young lady!
Fascinating Sleep Fact:
Animal studies have shown that animals forced to stay awake at night and sleep in the light develop more malignant tumors and die sooner than animals with normal sleep cycles. Research on humans has also linked years of overnight work among women to higher breast cancer rates, with a similar effect on prostate cancer in men. - IARC
