It's an interesting theory, and I think you're onto something - but perhaps not in the way you suspect..?
I strongly believe that there are different 'types' of dreams. Some are a meaningless jumble of imagery and concepts that have been explored in
some way during the day, or in recent times, which the subconscious simply has available to file and sort, perhaps resolve in some fashion if there
are any misunderstandings in relationships between two concepts, etc.
Secondly, I believe there are dreams that demonstrate a different quality, which are in essence a signal - or a set of archetypal experiences -
denoting truths that you have yet to assimilate into your personal subconscious. These could be from either genetic memory (what is all that junk
DNA??), or from 'higher forces' suggesting new concepts, or aiding you to revisit old concepts, to help you walk upon your unique path. Sometimes
'lower forces' may seek to damage you in some way, and this can occur as the result of the choices of others (eg - magic) Another possibility for
these dreams, which usually have a fairly striking impression upon you, and mostly follow a moderately well-defined thematic group of concepts, is
that they are formed by dipping into a 'group subconscious' - or perhaps, even due to 'soul traveling', whereby you enact a 'walk-in' upon
another's memory, experience, visualisation (etc..)
Thirdly, the most highly prized dreams of all, are those where unequivocally personal messages of Faith, Hope & Love are issued by a clearly powerful,
even sovereign 'Deity' (angelic visitation, travel to the higher realms of Heaven, etc) - wherein the unification of thematically arrayed concepts
is focused into a holistic 'vision-quest', entirely devoted to your good. In these dreams, you are reassured of your unique purpose on Earth & your
value as a member of Humanity, as well as your status as a blessed Child of God. You can be instructed very specifically (in the resolution of life
problems, etc), comforted tenderly (if you are grieving for a lost loved one, or distressed about something taking place in waking life..) You can be
inspired to push on with an existing plan, or given the preliminary details - the seed - of a new plan, invariably involving the application &
development of your existing talents. Lots of people have reported receiving innovative new ideas/applications for technology design, literature,
scientific 'eureka' moments, etc, in these sorts of dreams..
My point, as it relates to your OP, is that the very fact that you were seeking to understand why you were not dreaming, may have been answered in a
symbolic way. I say this because I dream every night, without fail, one of the above types (in approximate ratios, type 1 = 60%, type 2 = 30%, and
type 3 = 10%) Yet, almost all the time, my laptop is plugged in next to my head, my mobile phone is switched on next to it, and TV set-top box is
humming quietly in the corner of the room. So there's no way that the electric/magnetic fields are influencing my dreams, by the look of things.
It could be - my first instinct was - that you've not been dreaming of late, simply as a result of a change in your focus, in terms of
By trying to figure out what has changed, and by switching off your laptop, symbolically you've ceased to concentrate on the things of this world,
and have started to seek answers from the realm of the Spirit. The fact that you dreamt immediately after making this symbolic severance, could be a
strong indication that you are now supposed to more intensively focus on developing your spiritual self - in a particular direction.
The one thing I would perhaps urge caution with, is that when a person begins to "Ask, Seek & Knock", responding to a sign such as the one you've
been given, a time of testing begins; you may be overwhelmed with distractions, or even interfered with by negative forces seeking to ensure you
don't stumble across 'The Big Secret' of their involvement in the affairs of Mankind. If this should happen, it's a sign that you're pretty
close to the Truth, and I'd encourage you to search out the Narrow Path.
The Narrow Path is the one I least wanted to travel - I avoided it for years, seeking answers & communion with God in various New Age groups. Years
later, I was utterly fed up of seeing book after book, website after website, person after person full of conflicting, useless, wooly, intangible,
nonsensical advice (EG - ''there is no such thing as Truth, each must find his own way, create his own reality'') That sort of tripe, I learnt,
is perpetuated by fakers & charlatans, defrauders & deceivers - and those nice folk who found a rough semblance of warmth about the whole thing, who
were never that badly off to start with. The whole point is that the New Age provides an 'easy fix', with rose-tinted spectacles & zero
So what did I do?
