This Is What’s Really Causing Your Bizarre Dreams, Says An Expert

While the exact mechanisms behind dreaming aren’t completely understood, it’s widely believed that dreams serve as a means for memory consolidation. With that in mind, therapist and dream expert Leslie Ellis, Ph.D. tells mbg she thinks dreams take their cues from “a combination of our emotions, our environment, and to some degree, the things we encountered during the day.”

Whether it was a movie you watched, an event you witnessed, or a story you read, she says, all of these can contribute material to your dreams. “I think of this so-called ‘day residue’ as a palette that our dream-maker can work with to express the emotional events in our life, both personal and collective, that want to command our attention,” Ellis adds.
