Ever feel like your dreams are trying to tell you something? Maybe they are. Many people have experienced predictive dreams, dreams with messages.
Some people have had family members who have passed come through their dreams. Is this real or is this just the unconscious mind sorting through memories and experiences?
Sometimes the dream reflects where you are right now in life. It may reflect your fears or hopes. Sometimes dreams are more mundane – they have to do with particular activities in the last few days.
Many times our dreams are not straight forward. They come in strange metaphors and images. This is not unlike intuition. How can you tell if particular dreams are ones with messages?
First, dreams that are messages tend to have a different quality to them. I find they are more vivid in colours and sharpness. They may repeat. Until you get the meaning of a particular dream, it may reoccur. Or you may find that it changes once you understand it.
Second, dreams that are about people who have passed may indeed be the person’s spirit coming through. The person usually feels very real. They may come to us in our dream state because it is an easy way for us to perceive them.
In our waking state, there are too many things interfering with the quiet messages – our minds, external noise, our protective mechanisms. Once we are asleep, it is much easier for our Higher Selves, Spirit Guides, and family in spirit to reach us.
That all being said, how do you remember and interpret your dreams? If you can’t remember your dreams, try keeping a dream journal. In the morning when you wake up, get your journal out and write down as much as you can remember.
In the beginning, you may remember a small bit of a dream. You may only write a few words. As you continue this practice, you’ll find yourself remembering more and more.
When I first started my dream journal, I hardly remembered my dreams. The earlier entries were only three or four sentences long. Within a few weeks, I had to stop writing all my dreams down because I was running out of time before I had to go to work. I started to remember four and five dreams a night and was writing for 45 minutes.
Dream interpretation is something that I do for my clients. When they describe their dream, I use my psychic abilities to get the meaning of the dream.
Here is one way that may help you to interpret your dreams. Ignore what the people look like in your dreams and pay attention to their qualities and what they are doing. How do you feel about what they are doing in your dream?
Then take their personality, what they are doing, and how you feel about it and them, and think about all the major people in your life now and in the past. Do any of them fit?
See how this might mirror what’s going on in your life right now. Dreams can highlight where we are stuck, where we need to work on ourselves, and sometimes what spirit wants to tell us.
