Dreams are said to be a portal into the spiritual realm. Our ancestors are allowed to contact us and give us warning from the other side. They can provide us foresight that things are going to get better. They visit us in our sleep, providing us with symbolism and direct messages.
And even if you don’t believe any of that, science has proven time and time again that the dream realm is another dimension into our minds. We are able to relax just deeply enough to analyze our waking world. Our subconscious is providing us with solutions and warning us of potential issues that await us.
Whichever you believe — if you believe anything — dreams are meant to be broken down, piece by piece.
For years, people have been going to sites like DreamMods.com or visiting their spirit coaches for advice. Breaking down dreams based on color, shape, words, and imagery has provided insight to many of our lives.
Today, DreamsCloud, an online dream resource, launches the DreamSphere app for Android. Already available for iPhone, now the rest of the world can share their dreams with others.
The DreamSphere app allows users to keep a dream journal next to their bed. This means that they can ditch the pen and pad, no longer squinting as they scribble down notes, trying not to awaken fully. The journal comes attached to a “Smart Alarm,” allowing users to wake periodically to record their dreams throughout the night. With a transcription option available, users don’t have to type in the journal. They can simply speak into their smartphone and have it typed out for them – across 40 different languages.
Through the Dream Journal, users can track the emotional intensity of their dreams. Using the calendar tool, they can search specific dreams and map out their dream intensity over time, “revealing overarching themes and the overall state of their subconscious.” They will even be able to reference those days they forgot to dream. It only takes 50 words of detail for the app to gain insight on dream patterns.
Using a massive Dream Dictionary, users can search key terms from their dreams, across cultures and across religions, to find the exact meaning of the symbol they encountered. And, if that fails, one of the cloud’s 1.9 million dreamers can give you insight into your dream, interpreting it on your behalf.
As for privacy, users can rest assured that dreams can be hidden and their dream won’t be made into the next blockbuster film. If they want to share it across social media, they can. But if they want to keep it private, it’s good to know that these dreams are extra secure and locked behind dual-identity protocol and 128-bit encryption.
“Understanding our dreams and what they are trying to tell us can have such a significant impact on our overall health and mental well-being,” states Jean-Marc Emden, CEO and co-founder of DreamsCloud. “With the launch of DreamSphere for Android, we wanted to tap into the endlessly fascinating world of dreams by creating an app that will provide users with a valuable on-the-go companion for daily wellness and self-reflection. By empowering people to log, discuss and discover their dreams, DreamSphere can help people achieve a better understanding of themselves.”
