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.
It feels as if we, as humans, are at a cross road. The road has dead ended and we can choose to go left or right. We can’t see very far either way as we sit trying to decide which way to turn.
One way leads into the past and the other the future. The past is where we have created the patterns of our life that pop up when ever making a decision. We often think we are moving forward and yet only faces or the countryside changes. Our thinking, responding and reacting has us well programed.
In order to move towards the future we must update our programing. (just like we have to update our computers) The update I saw (in a dream) is choosing to retire (delete) our program called: Fear, who will survive and thrive, that leads us toward fight or flight and competition. There are so many of us now that moving in this direction will be more dangerous than ever before.
The new program is called: Love, unity, equality and community, what I do and give to others is returned to me. The fullness of what we give and receive will change our relationship with all Life forms.
To delete the old program: visualize a button connected to your belly button that says: Push here to delete Fear program, Push that button with your pointer finger of right hand and breathe deeply until you can not hold any more breath. Exhale all breath in one big HA, release your hold on the button and take 12 slow inhales and exhales. A flashing light will say : Are you sure you want to delete this program? YES NO Push button YES. If you feel fearful of deleting you can redo this deleting process until you can push YES button.
To install new Love program: Visualize a large green button in center of your chest at heart level. A flashing green sign appears and says: to install LOVE program. place fingers from both hands on large green button (fingers pointing inward). Inhale deeply thru nose, exhale slowly thru mouth 12 times. A flashing message will appear saying : Love program installed. (if you feel dubious you may reinstall until you feel the shift.) )
