Dreams are a significant way my guides give me messages, because when I’m asleep, my mind is relaxed and information can be received more easily.
I have always had a very rich dream state, and because of that, I love to sleep. I see my dreams vividly, so much so they are very much like real life. Other times my soul is off having an adventure: I can remember having flying dreams when I was a kid, I would run, stretch out my arms and take off, and it felt soooo good. Later in my teens I had astral travel dreams, where I would see other places in the world, but that’s another topic I’ll cover later.
Most of the memorable dreams I’ve had as an adult are for the purpose of learning from life experiences and handling the emotions that come up. For example, in my twenties and thirties I had a recurring dream about baggage – the heavy feelings and memories from the past that I was being asked to let go. Either I was packing up a house and didn’t have enough time to finish, or I was on a train trying to pick up all my luggage to get off. Sometimes I just left my things and walked away. The night I dreamt I had no baggage was a true relief.
Like this, my higher self and my guides show me what I need to take care of in my emotional life. Plus often, through a symbolic story I’m given an idea of what will happen in the future – this helps to alleviate worry and keep me on track. I also get clear instructions, like the dream that led me to enrol in a mindfulness meditation course.
If I’m going through something and not sure what to make of it, I ask my guides to give me a dream that explains the situation from a higher perspective and provides guidance. This really works!
So my question to you is, what kind of dreams do you have? Can you distinguish between the run-of-the-mill processing dreams and the etheric spirit-guided dreams? Do you have a recurring dream that you need to take notice of?
My method for getting the most out of dreams is to write them down first thing in the morning. As I write, I remember more details – the more the better. Then I ask, what is the meaning of this dream? Often I get a clear answer. If you recall symbols (like a playful puppy or a house on fire, for example), use a dream dictionary – I love the very chunky hardback, The Element Encyclopedia of 20,000 Dreams.
May your dream state be rich and vivid and full of important messages from your guides.
