CLEO (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

Have you ever jolted up­right in bed from a ter­ri­fy­ing night­mare? It’s funny how some­times the scari­est sce­nar­ios are the ones you’ve ac­tu­ally cre­ated your­self.

While it’s dif­fi­cult to find con­crete ev­i­dence, it’s widely be­lieved that dreams can help us un­der­stand and process thoughts and sit­u­a­tions we have dif­fi­culty deal­ing with when we’re awake. Dreams are largely metaphor­i­cal, so don’t panic if you dream of dy­ing, as your sub­con­scious isn’t nec­es­sar­ily ex­pos­ing a hid­den death wish.
