Our brains never stop working, and a dreaming brain is at it’s height of creativity and intuition.
In sleep we are in a brain state with its own set of rules and possibilities. We connect information in ways we wouldn’t do in the day.
This makes dreaming weird, confrontational, connective and also: a super brainstorm. Deirdre Barrett, PhD (Harvard) sees dreams as essentially another way of thinking. That explains why we often wake up with a good idea.
So let’s practice this skill! Every Friday my friend Anna and me host a Dreamstorming Room on Clubhouse. We share tips to intentionally sleep on a problem. We celebrate results. We would love for you to join us.
