Dreams are a wonderful way to bypass our mind and get clear guidance in our life. There have been so many times in my life that I have felt so unclear about what to do and which direction I should take in my life. When I ask inwardly to be shown clarity regarding situations or guidance, my mind at times comes up blank or confused. Those are the times that I have found that my dreams are a wonderful way to get information from my soul without my mind getting in the way.
When I talk about the importance of dreams to others, I sometimes hear people tell me that they do not dream or remember their dreams. I too at one time could relate to that statement, but with some focus towards remembering my dreams, I now can say that I have quite an active nightlife that guides me, helps me see myself clearer, and brings an inner richness to my life, and I am thrilled that I took the time and energy to pay attention to my dreams.
For me it all stated when I was in my 20’s and had read a book by Edgar Cayce.
Edgar Cayce suggested that we can access our higher self through our dream state. And if we wanted to get clarity on something, all we needed to do was ask, and our personal self would get out of the way while we sleep, letting our higher self come through. He was know as the “sleeping Prophet” because of this ability.
One thing that I found to be important is to ask the question clearly, and to affirm that upon awakening, you will not only remember the dream, but also understand the answer. Then it is important to write it down exactly as you dreamed it. Later when you are reading the dream, you will find that the answer is within that. If it still doesn’t make sense, then ask again. Sometimes I have asked the same question days in a row before getting clarity.
It is also important to believe that you have complete access to this information that you are seeking.
I know for me dreams have helped me in so many ways move into living my greatest potential and helping me to follow my heart. Guidance comes through dreams that may be ignored in our waking state.
I would love to hear about your personal dream experiences.
