Can dreams provide us answers?In our daily life many times it happens that we misplace something and cannot recall where to find it. Sometimes we are not able to think of solutions to our problems and fall short of ideas. We think that we know the solution but it does not come to our mind. It is said that answers to all these lie in our subconscious mind but when we are awake and busy we can seldom dig into our subconscious mind as our conscious mind dominates us.
But when we sleep our subconscious mind takes over as a result of which many times we see dreams. We all know most of the times dreams are silly and unrealistic but I wonder can sometimes dream be intelligent and need-based? Can they provide us the answers to the questions which our conscious mind fails to provide?
I am aware that there is something called lucid dreaming which means we can control our dreams as per our thoughts. It may be difficult to achieve though.
Has anyone had similar kind of experience where they found answers to their problems in dreams?
