Analyzing Your Dreams – The Four Stages Of Sleep

When trying to analyze and interpret your dreams, it is important to know that everyone, of all ages and in all parts of the world, dreams four to seven times a night. There is even some evidence that babies sleep while they are asleep while still in the womb. What they dream of is, of course, a mystery. What animals dream of is also a mystery, but most mammals dream too. The sleep cycle is divided into four distinct stages, and each person goes through all four stages every night. Each cycle contains a dream stage, and each person experiences several different dream stages and several different dreams each night.


Usually the only dreams that are remembered, if any, are those that take place closer to wakefulness. The closer the dream comes to awakening, the more likely it is to be remembered. If a dreamer wakes up in the middle of a dream, he or she will remember his dream vividly and vividly, even in the smallest details. We know this from years of studying dreams. You may be surprised to learn that science is still unsure of the exact function of dream dreams.


Let’s explore the four stages of sleep, including dream sleep, in greater detail.

Stage 1:
The first phase of sleep is very easy and in this phase it is very easy to wake up or disturb. The first phase of sleep usually only lasts a few minutes, and the sleeper quickly switches to the second.

Stage 2:
The second stage is a deeper sleep than the first. In the second stage of sleep, dreams begin to form. At this stage of the dream cycle, there are usually no clear images. At this stage, dreams often involve vague ideas and thoughts that flow from the mind of dreams. Sleeper continues and enters the third level.

Stage 3:
The third stage is an even deeper sleep. In the third stage of the sleep cycle, all the muscles of the sleeper relax and the heart rate and respiration decrease. The sleeper's blood pressure also drops during this sleep period and breathing becomes even and uniform. During this deep sleep it is very difficult to wake the sleeper. Usually, the sleeping person can only be awakened by a very loud noise or by saying their name. After a while, the sleeper will enter the final stage of sleep.

Stage 4:
The fourth stage of sleep, also known as REM or rapid eye movement sleep, is the deepest phase of sleep and most dreams occur. It is very difficult to wake the sleeper at this stage of sleep. During REM sleep, blood pressure and heart rate fluctuate and the sleeper's brain shines. Studies of dream patients have shown that there is more brain activity when we dream than when we are awake.

Rapid eye movements under the closed eyelids named REM sleep. These eye movements are characteristic of sleep-related sleep and are evidence of dreaming. Most REM sleeps last only about 10 minutes. After this, the sleeping car returns to a deep sleep. This is a feature of the fourth stage of the sleep cycle. The sleeper will return to REM sleep after a while and then return to stage 4. This process is usually repeated 4-7 times a night.
