Images, ideas, emotions, and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind during sleep have been a topic of scientific, philosophical and religious interest throughout recorded history.
Do dreams reveal insight into hidden desires and emotions?
Do they assist in memory formation or problem solving?
Or are they simply products of random brain activity?
In Diana’s case, (Diana the heroine of Conflicted, a chapter of which is the subject of today’s post,) perhaps her dreams are direct messages from God.
Or they predict her future.
Or they represent a release of sexual tension.
Or are connections to her unconscious mind.
Or are Diana’s dreams surreal and bizarre, not reflecting anything in the real world?
They certainly are frightening. Magical.
What are they warning Diana?
Or are they meant to scare her into inactivity?
