Everybody dreams, even if we don’t remember them all. The reason we dream is still a matter of scientific speculation. In the Greek and Roman periods, the people believed that dreams were direct messages from the gods or from the dead and that they predicted the future.
What about nightmares? These are thankfully less common, but unfortunately much harder to forget. In crystal healing, crystals for relief of nightmares are often used under the pillow, under the bed, or on a nearby beside table. They can be loose or in a pouch.
