When was the last time you experienced a dream you remembered? And a dream so intense you woke from the dream and all you wanted to do was put yourself back to sleep to experience more?
Just like that good book when we don't want it to end.
I've experienced a few incredibly symbolic dreams in succession recently. I admit I do have one or two dream books I bought sometime back, you know the one's that attempt the interpretation. I didn't reach for these in fact I've only just remembered these gems as I touch the keys to write the words.
After each dream I wanted to hold on, to not allow what felt important to me slip away before I was complete. What's complete? A little time to allow the meaning to rise to the top, just like the cream on the full cream organic milk I bought Mum recently...yum yum.
Fascinating...the layering of the dream message...what seems like random is perfect.
They say dreams are our subconcious mind tapping us on the shoulder, providing answers to what's going on in our life while we're consious. That's entertaining!
Experts say dreaming is thinking in a different biochemical state. A state contemplating the visual, intuitive and emotional, different to how we are when we're awake. When I think about this I am amazing by the intensity of the delivery in a dream. A reminder I can be the Spielberg of my own movies to create the my dream to be living an inspired life during my waking hours.
Dreams come in all shapes and sizes...bizarre,cryptic, rock, scare or inspire us.The most recent dream was inspiring to me. It came about during a time I was reading a book on nutrition, contributing to increasing my vitality and talking about it with friends over Friday drinks. The combo dream ...nutritional nasties layered with a specific relationship from a lo-oo-ooong way back...yes I mean long. That dream decoded was raw 'in my face' honesty and humouress...no tissues required.
Connecting the dream to our awake life is the reality check. Acknowledging our thoughts more clearly, increases our awareness and becomes the guide when we're tuned in.
Finding the meaning in the dream is like growing a garden. I figure if I'm regularly tending my garden of dreams, pulling the weeds, celebrating the flowers, I'm prepared for a breakthrough to come and to rock my world.
Bring on the next big dream I say and to awakening your dream life.
Make it a great week.
