3.6. What causes nightmares?

Nightmares are often a product of our fears. You will tend not to have
nightmares if you rid yourself of fears. So find out what your fears
are, and try to conquer them. Nightmares, however, can also be an
early symptom that a disease is developing or that an attack is about
to occur.

If you are afraid of dying, then you should know that a lot suggest
that you have a life after death, and whenever you want can you return
to the physical world. This is called reincarnation. Just study Ian
Stevenson's work if you want scientific evidence. If you have other
fears, like spiders, there are a few effective things you can do about
them. We have virtual reality, but since we are dealing with dreaming
here anyway, it is better to bring up Lucid Dreaming. Whenever you
have a nightmare you should try to visualize a different ending on the
dream. By doing this you may experience that it is a dream and we all
know that dreams aren't dangerous. When lucidity is gained, you can
confront whatever is scaring you. Once that is done can you continue
exploring the wonderful world of Lucid Dreaming.
