Dream interpretation has thought history been classed as an important thing to do. Native Americans, along with Mexicans & the Chinese, believe that when we dream, our souls are actually visiting a distinct, separate realm, where we may even meet & interact with our departed loved ones.
Every single person dreams, but not everyone remembers this dream activity. Those who swear that they don't dream will usually find that with the regular practice of waking themselves up at night at an unfamiliar hour, they will start to remember their dreams, or at least the fact that they had been dreaming! In fact, we spend on average 1 - 2 hours dreaming every night, & within that time, we'll have between 4 - 7 dreams.
A dream can warn us of potential danger. Frequently things that trouble us crystallize in a dream. Everyone who sleeps, dreams, including animals. When you take a nap, you are ten times more likely to remember your dreams. On average, we sleep for a third of each day. Take your age and divide it by 1/3 and you will know how many years you have been asleep, on the other side, in this lifetime. For example, if you are 30 years old, you have slept for 10 years.
Many dreams bring messages, some part of your soul's evolution. Dreamtime is often a place of transformation for the soul where it awakens afterward enlightened about the next step on its journey into awareness. This is a time where the soul and mind process the path of the quested who returns in higher frequency of thought and personal mission. If you can perceive of your dreams as projected illusion, in which you are experiencing and learning, then so too shall you look upon your experiences in the physical, and unlock the mysteries of humanity. From the point of view of dreamtime and other realms of conscious awareness, our reality is but a projected illusion in linear time.
Before and After Dreamtime
As reality is programmed illusion, you can preset your programming for dreamtime, before you go to sleep. The power of suggestion often works when it comes to dreams. If you want to remember at least one dream, tell yourself that before going to sleep. If you do not want to have scary dreams, before you go to sleep, mentally state that, I do not want to have scary dreams. This is good to do when your life is in turmoil.
If someone is attacking you in dreamtime, tell your spirit guides to protect you, and never allow that person near you. Example: An old lover who wants to contact with you in dreams.
It is often helpful to review the events of your day before going to sleep, as if watching a movie. This is helpful if you wish to work out issues during dreamtime.
After you wake up, it is best to remain still and focus on your dreams experiences.
Dream Journal, It often useful to keep a dated journal of your dreams. Keep it by your bed. Write the notes in the journal as soon as you 'wake up.' You may not understand their content until later. using a tape recorder is also advisable.
Interpreting Dreams, Interpretation of dreams often vary. One must know about the dreamer and what is going on around them if this is a personal dream. If it is a universal dream, it may be more easily understood. Some dreams are exact in content while others are metaphoric. Most dreams have symbols.
Your mind can only process the events in the dream based on symbols it understands. If you experience a dream that is not within the vocabulary of your mind, you will not be able to process and remember it. The physical mind has to be able to make sense of a dream, for you to remember it. It's like a young child being taught calculus. It has no way of understanding, and therefore processing or interpreting what it is being shown, so it forgets what it sees.
In dreamtime you generally receive messages in symbols or archetypes whose meaning you must later discover. This is not unlike messages received in meditations or other states of altered consciousness.
Here is an example, you dream about 'keys.' Keys open locks, doorways. Something new will be shown. You must then look at the number of keys given, the metal of which they were made, and anything else given in your dream related to these keys, such as ... who gave them to you.
Death in a dream does not necessarily mean a physical death in as much as a transformation, old giving way to something new and better.
A Dream Dictionary is often helpful in deciphering symbols as well as searching the internet for the symbolic meaning of that which has been shown to you.
Asking for Guidance, What I have discovered about myself is that when I am uncertain about an issue I go to sleep and ask for guidance.
Sometimes I am shown events in a dream that I remember and help me focus.
Other times, I don't remember the dream when I wake up, but I know I have processed the information and know what the solution is. I often wake up with feelings of closure about issues. My soul has made the decision that is best for me in third dimension.
