My dreams are often troubling; not nightmarish, just unsettling. Fear and betrayal are common feelings; my house being broken into, people leaving me behind, confusion when I try to get out of a building, out of a parking garage, out of an airport... you get the idea.
I can't remember having a happy dream, one where everything is wonderful... or at least not worrisome. I know that we can't control what we dream about, but they do arise from somewhere in our unconscious mind so is there a way to 'quiet' the brain so it is less likely to produce situations full of worry and trouble?
I'm not looking for Rom-Com dreams... just peaceful walks on a beach or sitting next to a waterfall or just feeling happy and contented.
