How Dreams Are Used In Chinese Medicine

We know that somewhere in between dreaming and reality, there’s bound to be a connection somewhere, although all points seem to be leading to dead-ends. To date, there is no existing, hard evidence or explanation on how dreams really work but indeed different cultures got their own views and beliefs on why they exist and how they can help the dreamer improve their way of living.

That’s one thing I like about dreaming. If you take a look and study how experts conclude the dreaming process, it’s always on the bright and positive side of things. If it is viewed as an omen or portent of bad things to come, it is deemed to be taken as a warning so that the dreamer can prepare for it, if not avoid the threatening danger. Because of these, dreams eventually are valued and appreciated, never shunned.

In Chinese tradition, dreams are viewed as same. In fact, they’re used to diagnose a bad organ inside the body but unlike typical dream interpretation, it doesn’t use symbols but instead takes note of the emotions felt during the dreams. It will also help if your dream is a recurring one just so you know it’s not only a product of your subconscious mind. Here are some basic interpretations for dreams in traditional Chinese medicine:

·    Anger. This very negative feeling is brought about by hardening of the liver or gallstones can be forming right at that very moment.
·    Sadness. When you feel sad and lonely, better have your heart and lungs checked.
·    Fear. Fearful dreams usually represent anxiety but it can also warn you about your current heart and liver status.
·    Happiness. Feeling happy, contented and fulfilled in your dreams are representations that your body is not under stress in any way.
·    Striving hard. It means your body is not properly digesting the food you eat hence indigestion.
