NREM sleep (non- rapid eye movement) is the part of your dream you forget. Between five minutes of waking, half your dream is forgotten.
When you sleep you go through five stages of sleep.
Stage 1: Stage one is called the Alpha stage. In this stage your mind isn’t focusing on a dream, but you’re thinking about what happed during the day. It’s possible to think you hear someone call your name or ring the doorbell.
Stage 2: In the second stage, your heart rate slows down and your brain produces lots of brain wave activity known as sleep spindles.
Stage 3: In stage three, your deep, slow brain waves called delta waves, emerge. It is in the middle of light sleep and deep sleep.
Stage 4: Stage four is called delta sleep. It’s called that because, of the kind of delta waves that occur at the time. Sleep-walking can occur at the end of stage four.
Stage 5: Stage five is called REM sleep. This is the part of your dream that is most vivid.
The Dream Catcher was made by the Native Americans. It was made to repel bad dreams. It was made out of twigs, string and beads. The natives thought that the string would catch the bad dreams like a web, and the good dreams would go through the hole in the middle. If the natives kept beside their bed, they would never have bad dreams again.
