I awoke this morning remembering a dream that felt so real. Dreams are so mysterious. Like the deep sea, there is much uncharted territory in the dream realm. My dreams are special to me and I try to listen to their messages.
I’m not alone in my fascination with the dream state – nearly every culture throughout history has valued the wisdom and spiritual depth contained in dreams. Native Americans saw dreams as another form of reality and a doorway to spiritual awareness. They valued the messages dreams conveyed and saw them as guides for the living. Many cultures have tried to interpret the important messages dreams communicate about our lives and some cultures traditionally perform sacred rituals to elicit dreams.

Some dreams are extra special to me; they have a different quality to them that feels prophetic and tangible. Sometimes I have the experience of reconnecting with people who have passed away, or friends who are still on the material plane, but who I haven’t seen in a long time. I love those special dream experiences of spending time with another person and how that reality carries over into my day.
Last night I had one of those visitation dreams. I had a dream encounter with a special friend, whom I haven’t spoken to in quite some time. When I awoke this morning, I felt happy and certain that we’ll be getting together soon in the material world.
I’ve have also had precognitive dreams from time to time throughout my life. I wake in the morning feeling like it was so real and then about two weeks later the scene from my dream unfolds before my eyes in the physical. I start to ask a lot of questions when that happens. Was I seeing into a predestined future, or was I creating my future during the dream state?
I can’t explain why, but I realize dreams are an important aspect of my reality and contribute to my emotional well-being. I believe dreams are fascinating and very powerful and that they contain important messages for my life, so I intentionally try to recall them. When a dream doesn’t have an obvious message for me, I find if I just remember it throughout the day and occasionally mull it over, I will suddenly have an ‘ah-ha’ moment and it will be clear what the message was for me. It helps me grow on many levels when I realize the message, so I pay attention to my dreams.
Dreaming is an act of pure imagination, attesting in all men a creative power, which if it were available in waking, would make every man a Dante or Shakespeare ~ H.F. Hedge
Dreaming has always been considered a part of a healthy life. Medical greats like Hippocrates, Aristotle and the Aborigines of Australia believed in the healing power of the subconscious and used dreams as a diagnostic, problem-solving tool. They believed that illness stemmed from the brain and that dreams held the answers needed to make the body, mind and spirit whole.
Kabbalah views dreaming as a ‘metaphysical tune-up’ – a time when the soul can return to the realm beyond time and space, which is home. I have to admit that’s exactly what it feels like to me. While ‘home’ recharging our battery, the soul has insights about future events coming up and sends them to the physical realm in the form of dreams.
Most of our dreams are a combination of messages about events, experiences, and thoughts in our conscious minds, but occasionally there are ‘special dreams’ that offer visions from the soul.
Once you make a decision to remember your dreams by keeping a notebook by your bed to record them, you remember more and more. I feel it enriches our life experience. The desire to experience the power of dreamwork in your life brings them closer to the conscious mind. Some dream messages help us learn what we need to change in our lives, or how to grow spiritually or even which direction to take to move forward.
Interpretation involves discernment, wisdom and patience. Taking down notes about a dream and allowing it to just run through your mind once in a while, throughout the day, will eventually bring you to that “ah ha” moment about its message for you. I think dreams are well worth any effort.
