Dreams. Sometimes fun, sometimes scary, sometimes insightful.
We dream for many reasons and those reasons are far more important then
we have been led to believe.
Dreams help us to
process a previous day’s activities. Often times we go to sleep
confused about the mumble-jumble of our day only to wake up with a
clear and concise understanding. That is a direct result of our
subconscious mind organizing its acquired information so that clarity
Dreams also assist us in planning the
next day’s events as studies have shown that those who are deprived of
their dreamtime sleep soon become incapable of functioning normally.
Once again, our subconscious minds have been busy working out the
details of up-coming situations. We even meet up with the people who
will play a role in our next day’s activities and rehearse our lines!
(Proof of this is experienced as déjà vu.)
often take us inside the consciousness of our body’s cellular structure
so that we can observe how dis-ease is affecting us physically. I once
was shown a short movie of my circulatory system so that I could learn
that an unknown and untreated tooth abscess was infecting my heart
valves. Because of that dream I sought out medical treatment and
possibly saved my life.
Dreams are also a window
to our souls. Through them we can communicate with Spirit and gain new
insights. We can literally request answers to our questions that will
be given through a dream. Our nighttime sojourns can connect us to our
future or return us to our past, all courtesy of our soul’s vast memory
storehouse viewed during dreaming.
And of course,
dreams can be fun as we experience all those things that we are unable
to express during our waking time. Dreams are non-judgmental and so
anything goes as we are freed from our rigid social constraints. We can
even learn to wake-up within our dreams and participate in directing
its events; this is referred to as lucid dreaming.
Dreams also show us how we are able to leave our bodies at night. This
is known as astral travel and can allow us to observe friends, family,
and other interesting places. I once fell asleep during the night shift
at a group home where I worked. Through a dream-like vision, I observed
my boss walking around the house checking up on things. I awoke with a
start as I feared that she was really there and that I had been caught!
However, it had all been an astral dream as upon my awakening she was
nowhere to be seen. Through seeing her during astral travel I now knew
that she was keeping track of her responsibilities by leaving her body
to observe while she peacefully slept.
to deciphering your dreams lies in comprehending the symbols utilized
by your dream mind. Our mind utilizes symbols because a symbol can
condense a lot of information into a single image. These individual
images then communicate this knowledge along with relevant emotional
qualities. The whole package transfers great depth of meaning quickly
Learn how to remember your
dreams. Get lots of sleep, keep a pen and paper by your bedside, and
tell yourself before drifting off that you will wake up when having a
dream. Then write it down and wait till morning to do any deciphering.
May the dream-force be with you!
In memory of Greg Kasperek who
was a self-taught cosmic philosopher/sage. According to Greg, during
the past sixteen years the universe had steadily conspired to impart
humanity's true purpose into his conscious mind. This had been done
through dreams, astral projection, visions, books, people, and daily
events. Through this awesome inspiration Greg had become devoted to
helping others become aware of their spiritual selves through
numerology, dream interpretation, past-lives, and spiritual guidance.
Greg was also the author of five self-published books on humanity's
