Diabetes, Dr Frederick Banting, Harvard University discussed on Coast to Coast AM

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Down the right now while we're awake or quasi awake. Our frontal lobe is functioning and and in our prefrontal cortex. We we control we think about time we think about order, we think about spatial relationships. But when that shuts down we go to sleep, we would firing as we're sleeping is our emotional cortex is is the part of our mind that is unlimited by space and time. That's why so many dreams have us in one scenario. And then we jumped and we've jump through a wall and all of a sudden we're in outer space, and then we we blink. And again, and then we're back in high school, and then we blink again. And we're in the future. So it's because we don't have that prefre. Cortex running the show, but it's a reality. And it feels real even though it seems crazy when we talk about a dream when we're in our waking state, it just sounds like gibberish. But it isn't there is a very strange logic to all of those bizarre images that we dream about it night. There's been kind of great Harvard professors and scientists that have talked about the logic of our crazy dreaming mind. It's like another language, but it's our first language. It's a language we all speak. But we forgot we speak it. And if we put those dreams those symbols together, it spells something out that is always. And I mean, always there's never a wasted dream. It is always spelling out something that is going to give us an edge on how to get our power back had to be a better person had a manifest more magnificently in our lives than than we're stumbling. Around fumbling the way we normally do do the dead. No, they can approach us in the dream state. Is that why so many people have dream visions of their dearly departed? Oh, george. That's a great question. I love the way you approach that. Yes. I think they do. I think they do know that we do have sin walls when we go to sleep. We that. It's normally we're always capable of being ever seething messages from our departed loved ones or the dead as you just call them with were always available, but there's a wall that separates us from them in our normal. Waking state we could blame that all on the prefrontal cortex. Even though we love the prefrontal cortex, we wouldn't be you wouldn't be doing this radio show, and I wouldn't have been able to call in. If we didn't have that ability to dial numbers and all that stuff, but when we are asleep. We don't have it were available and the dead do and they do reach out to us. There's one of the store. Stories. I mean, this is a very simple story. But I think it's so powerful. There's in our chicken soup for the soul dreams and and from initiatives the first chicken soup for the syllabus edited. There's a young boy who lived on a farm whose father passed away, and he didn't know how to run the tractor because it was broken. And he always his father figure out how to turn it on. But the kid never had to because it wasn't his job. And it's a couple of days after his father passed away. And he's he's depressed, and he's frustrated 'cause he's now the man of the family, but he can't turn the tractor on. And his mother suggests that he go and just take a nap and to sleep on it and see if he feels better when he wakes up five minutes later after he had gone to take a nap. He had an epic dream that his father came to him and told him not just about the tractor. But he told them all kinds of stuff that gave this this. Boy, this young boy all this reassurance. He runs out past his mother goes out to the tractor. And he does what his father told him to do in his dream said that there's this quarter sized lug nut or something. That was underneath the steering column. You had to stick your hand inside this whole fish around and find this thing that he never would have known how to do. We're at not for the dream. And were it not for his father's guidance. He turned on the tractor and lo and behold it worked, and how did he get that for sure his father came to him in a dream sad that his son was needing because he had no idea how to do it. Exactly. Exactly. But again, the intensity of the need prompted that strong requests. And I think it made the lines of communication that much clearer. So I think sometimes when when people are sad or depressed or scared there, they they should channel that towards making a strong request towards. The angels on the other side, the departed loved ones the beings that are on the other side that are at the ready to help and you really just need to save. Just, you know, give it to me lay it out and then go to sleep, and then pay attention to the first thing that you remember when you wake up in the morning or when you wake up from a cat nap. That's put some of the great inventors did Thomas Edison, always took catnaps in the middle of the day, especially when he was stumped during the midst of some kind of invention. He would take catnap. And and the first thing that he thought of when he woke up in the morning woke up from his nap would be inevitably something that would help him in terms of a solution towards whatever it was. He was working on Einstein did this so many of the great inventors and people that have won Nobel prizes in medicine has has paid attention to the insight from their dreams. We we have we know that that we need an insulin for diabetes. My niece has has diabetes, and she probably wouldn't be alive. Were it not for? A dream that Dr Frederick Banting had about about the need for insulin. And hell we could get that. So that solves problems doesn't it? Oh, yes. And it brings us to love to we're looking for it. Or it can enhance the love we have. There's so many things. What about the Harvard University study what what did that conclude? Right. Well, this is great because it's very practical. They that what they did was they had a number of people say fifty people in a room working on an impossible maze. When that was so difficult, and everyone was doing poorly on it. And they they had they divided the group into three. They had one group continue to work on the maze that another group taken up. They had another third group. Take a nap but to not come back to the maze until they had some remembered dream. So in the end guess what group did better on this? So the group that that kept on working they actually did the worst out of everybody. So the message and that is if you're stumped. If you're if you're struggling working on something taking that nap is highly underrated even at the Huffington Post. They have a required Napa room that the employees are supposed to take. So there's a lot of businesses that are acquiring cry requiring their employees to take naps in the day. But the group that took a nap and didn't remember dreams they did a little bit better. But the group that took a nap and remember to dream exponentially better than the rest of the group in some of those people that took the nap didn't even have a dream that had anything at all to do with the maze. Some people did have a dream that had something to do with the maze, and it gave them an extra edge. But what?.
