Hey there ATSers
I discovered something fairly interesting these last few nights on accident and would like to tell you all about it
So, for the last 8 months to maybe even a year or so now I have been confused as to why I was no longer having dreams when I go to sleep at night. No
dreams, not a one, well, that I could remember at least. I thought, hmm, well maybe I'm just going through a phase, maybe it's not so odd, I heard
of other people who don't dream very much when they used to in the past, maybe my lifestyle and daily life had perhaps changed somehow from a year or
so ago and that could be attributing to this?
I remember having dreams almost every night years ago, or even so much as maybe a year and half ago I was dreaming pretty regularly every night. I
enjoy dreams, I look forward to going to sleep so I can have them.
So, I thought about it some more and decided that I would try some methods out to see if I could get them back. I looked online for ways to promote
dreaming. I started listening to binanural beats while laying down to rest in bed at night. I tried all different Hz and frequencies and still,
nothing happened and I still was not getting my dreams.
I starting trying visual meditation, focusing on a beautiful scenery while I lied in bed at night before I fell asleep and imagining myself there.
Nope...still no dreams...
I tried taking some natural sleep aid "melatonin", I didn't hear anything about it promoting dreams really but I thought hey why not I'll give
that a shot too. Took some melatonin and still the dreaming did not ensue.
So, finally, Saturday night 2/4/13, I just happened to decide that I had enough of my laptop, and I decided to completely shut it down (power off) and
I even unplugged the power chord from it.
My laptop ---which conveniently and distractingly is always on at all times (I never shut it down until Saturday night) and is always kept on stand,
again, conveniently and distractingly, "right next to my face", next to my bed whille I sleep every night...
As you can guess, that night when I went to bed, I had a dream, for the first time in what seemed like forever. I woke up and remembered the entire
dream. It wasn't anything extraordinary but it was still a dream and I still remembered it when I woke up the next morning. Needless to say I was
pretty amazed... and happy.
I knew right away that shutting the laptop down is what caused me to dream. I mean, how could it not be the reason?
So, last night, I decided to to shut my laptop off again right before falling asleep. And just for the sake of it I unplugged the power chord again
like I did the night before. What do you know? That's right, another dream happened.
Tonight I will also shut my laptop down and unplug it. If I have another dream I will be almost convinced that my computer was the cause of stopping
my dreams for these many months. I am almost certain now that the reason I wasn't dreaming was because of the eletromagnetic frequencies and waves
emitted from the computer. I believe they were literally the direct cause.
So what I'll do now obviously, is shut it down again tonight. If a dream happens, that will be fantastic, but then what I'm going to do to test this
theory after perhaps a few more nights of shutting the computer down, is I will then start leaving the computer on again while I sleep for just a few
more nights, if my dreams stop happening again after I do this, I should have proof. This should tell me for sure whether or not the EMFs from the
laptop are indeed attributing to my sleeping patterns and taking my dreams from me.
I already knew that my laptop is often a distraction when it comes to getting to sleep at night. I have also known that it probably isn't good for me
to keep it running next to my face all the time because it does radiate EMFs, like microwaves and pretty much anything else that is ran by electricity
and that isn't good for you, even though we are all exposed to them every day, it's probably not a good idea to add to the problem if you can help
it... but I really didn't know specifically that it was the main reason I wasn't having dreams anymore.
I thought this was all very interesting. I didn't even shut the laptop down in the first place as an experiment to see if I would dream, I was just
sick of looking at the screen that night haha. It's pretty nice when you find things out on accident sometimes, because this was just the answer I
was looking for.
Have a nice night and sleep tight,
