After having worked with dreams over the past 15 years, there is little doubt in my mind of the ability to cause change as a result of your dreams.One lady, in particular, who attended one of my dream classes was haunted by a recurring dream of people being mutilated. This really was virtually a nightly occurrence for her. In my dream class I teach that people, and things, in your dreams represent aspects of you. It is important as well to understand that dreams are a reflection of one's thinking. In her case, the mutilation-type thinking was something on a conscious level that she was experiencing, in her everyday waking state.
I came to the conclusion that she must be hard on herself, that she would beat herself up, "mutilate" herself, if you will, on a mental and emotional level. Interestingly, her friend had accompanied her to the dream class. When I said to the woman having the dream "You must be very hard on yourself!", her friend shook her head in the affirmative. She knew exactly what I was talking about. Sometimes our friends can see us more objectively that we can.This woman's dream was prompting her to change, as all recurring dreams do. Once she understood that her dream was a result of type of thinking, she knew what to do. Instead of belittling herself, she began having more respect for herself.Several months later, I met up with this woman again at another dream class I was holding. She told me that the mutilation dreams had virtually stopped. And now, when a dream presented a message to her, she sought to understand it. She sought to be an agent of change for herself.
We do create our reality through our thoughts and attitudes. Our dreams exist to make us more aware of how we are creating our lives through our thoughts. They allow us the opportunity to cause change in ourselves. If we are in a rut, our dreams will let us know about it. And the recurring dream is telling us that we are definitely in a rut.
Life is about change. There is a saying that if you change your thoughts, you change your life...and your dreams as well. Dreams are a wonderful barometer of where we are at on the path of life. Whether we are in harmony or anguish, the inner self will alert you to this through your dreams.The power to change is within every individual. When you tap into the power of your dreams, it is like tapping into a best friend that tells you like it is. The ability to understand your dreams can alleviate years of heartache and misunderstanding. Had this woman not come to my dream class, she might still be having the recurring dreams.
We are our own best "psychic." No one knows us better than our inner self. Each morning upon arising, reflect upon your dreams. Were they pleasant or disturbing? That alone will alert you to what is going on within you. Your dreams only reveal truth about you. There is such power in that.
Strive to understand the universal meaning of your dreams and your will make great strides in gaining self-understanding.
Use your dreams for all they're worth!
