I have been journaling my dreams for numerous years. I’ve learned things about myself I couldn’t learn any other way. I’ve found some of my dreams to be extremely enlightening and other times frustrating because the information received from the dreamer is a different language. A language of words and symbols that doesn’t fit into our logical way of thinking. And the idea that we all use the same symbols is as ridiculous as thinking our beliefs are all the same. So why do we dream?
I believe we dream to connect to a larger aspect of ourself, the parts (or information) we ignore in our everyday life. We also dream to bring more meaning to our lives. Sometimes people have nightmares not understanding that the dream is to help them see their fear and that fears can be dealt with much easier in our dream state. We dream to check out new experiences before we do it physically. or to empower our self in new ways, like flying. Sometimes we dream the future. Sometimes we dream about how we have given up the drivers seat of our life.
I used to use my dreams, as an interior designer, to see the room(s) I was working on connected to the owner and get a more clear vision of what to do with their room(s) . I found out i could connect to their own dreams of what they really wanted. I also dreamed a great deal of my novel/story in Awakening Earth Chronicles. Scenes unfolded in my drams that my logical mind would not have imagined. I see dreaming as our personal connection to fullfillment.
To remember your dreams you must make a commitment by saying out loud “I want to remember my dreams” AND then writing them down. there is often a strong emotion in our drams that wakes us with full memory. opening to our dream self is like a marriage, a deep commitment to ones Self.
So much of our lives are lived in the invisible realms. It happens but we cant see it. Shifting from one frequency to another is an invisible experience. Very few people speak of it, but we’ve all experienced getting stuck in a frequency. The one that comes to mind today has to to do with parents and grown children because I am about to visit my grown daughter, grandchildren and great grand children. If I shift into my old mother role (I was a strong mother) I will also trigger shifts in all of them.
We all develop many parts (frequencies) of our self, whatever we put a lot of time into, becomes a comfortable frequency. (or even uncomfortable) If one’s career demands they be a decision maker, it can be difficult to shift out of that frequency with a partner or ones children. If one’s career is caretaker, it may find it difficult to shift and so continue to take too much responsibility for partner, children or friends. Since it’s all invisible, understanding how and when to shift and how powerful it feels when we learn this magic.
Remember walking in the door to your parents house and boom, you feel like a kid again? You shifted into that old child frequency and then your parent is triggered (or may have triggered you) to shift into their old parental role and the old relationship frequency pops up. It might be fun for a short time but then can become a power struggle
Parent and child are each a different frequency (and development) and the relationship between them is also a frequency. No matter how old we are when we visit our parents, we tend to revisit that child frequency. It can be difficult, as an older parent, to not shift into that old relationship frequency and treat our grown child from that old frequency. Which is why it is very important to consciously develop a new relationship that allows child and parent to feel more equal. Getting stuck in these old frequencies can be irritating for young people trying to live at home once they have left and developed a frequency of being on their own and equally frustrating for the parent who thought their child had grown up but is still acting like a child. A new relationship frequency must be created or both will automatically revert back to what was developed and often feel irritated because they don’t know how it happened or how to escape it.
The first step is recognizing something just occurred and you feel different. We can become aware of where our energy sits in our body during whatever skill we are involved in. Am I in my head? My throat? My heart? My solar plexus? My tummy? My genitals? Out in space? Once I know where I am in my body I can choose to move.
I will follow up next week with more ways to move. You can email me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
