Your Dreams Have A Message For You

01D6F363-9AD2-4481-B3E4-F61B1ADDD5D8

One of the first things I do every morning is analyze my dreams.

What about you?

Do you remember your dreams?

Do you interpret their meaning?

Have you ever dreamt the same dream repeatedly?

In the video below I share the dream I had last night.

A “dream theme” I have at least twice a week.

  1. I’ve always found dreams fascinating Andrea and used to keep a dream journal for a long time. I have a LOT of dreams about water too and travelling on various forms of transportation, boat, train, car but I’m often late or not in the drivers seat. I’m unusually able to decipher them but sometimes they make little sense. Gosh, how I wish I was in your class! 😍

    Thank you Dr. Andrea, for sharing this great article. I always had this question in my mind. What are these dream about and why they revolve around the situations the scenarios the people you are familiar with in one way or the other. I always thought they have some message.
    Anyway dreams are magical and hold messages and these are communications between our subconscious and higher power. I loved your article. Thanks again for sharing it.

    1. What is your most common dream? What is your most common nightmare? fear? Include awake and nighttime examples of each. It’s always fascinating to see the crossover between our waking and unawake consciousness. πŸ’€β˜€οΈπŸ›ŒπŸ’‘

  3. Dreams fascinate me! Sometimes I manipulate what I dream about (doesn’t always work) and sometimes I manipulate the dream when I’m having it (doesn’t always work). And sometimes I explain myself my dream while dreaming/after waking. Wonderful way to get a little peek into our subconscious.

    1. That is amazing! You are a student of lucid dreaming. I love that Samantha!

      The best part is taking the same active dreaming skillset into your waking life too.

      Just as the tag line for my blog says:
      β€œDon’t be chased by your problems β€” be led by your dreams”.

    1. Thank you my friend! As I read your note I said “oh I love it!” out loud πŸ’–πŸ’– How lucky we are to pique each others’ interest in long forgotten rituals. My weekend is already brighter because of you! #dreamers :))))

  5. This week a trauma from college out of nowhere arrived one day

    It arrived with intense emotional content

    The dream of this event happened every nite

    The fear, rage and helplessness of the event, plays in vivid detail

    I am always trying to stop the event from happening or getting violent revenge

    When my complex PTSD was at its strongest
    I would wake up drenched in sweat from life and death charge situations

    I thought one day I had killed someone

    Had to ask my wife of the time, what was real

    These dreams were so real I thought they happened in real life

    Trauma dominates my dreams

    I guess my dreams are dominated by unresolved abuse

    I do yearn to have positive dreams if adventure or intrigue

            1. I just read your post Marty. Thank you for sharing here and on my psychology blog. So many triggers during this time. I see it as movement too. Which of course is hard to see “in the in between”. So let me be a witness to your healing. You are the caterpillar feeling trapped. And I can see your wings.

    1. What’s your nightmare about? Nightmares are also dreams open to interpretation. I had them all the time when I was younger. I used to sleep run through the house while having nightmares!

      DREAMING IS A BIOLOGICAL NECESSITY
      And we all dream – but we only remember them if we wake up midway. Which is why the dreams we remember most vividly is the last one before we wake up. Often interrupted by an alarm clock or biological processes.

      Dreams are essential for memory consolidation and learning. Something that happens more often during the night than during the day.

      This also explains why babies and children sleep so much β€” their brain needs to integrate and consolidate all the new acquiredly information.

      1. I only get nightmares when I worry and am feel I can’t cope. Dreams, may be i cant remember them as i don’t wake up midway through. But, i believe when i am at peace, and my meditation practise keeps me at peace along with journally i don’t dream – unless i work late into the night and i go to sleep with a highly engaged mind, then I dream and plan and am very active – but then i can’t sleep.

        it is all interesting stuff. I do believe it is all sub-consciousness stuff.

  6. Thank you, yes I often try to analyse them.. Not often making sense.. But some are much more profound than others and I know beyond doubt the message within them.. Thank you Andrea.. πŸ™‚ May our waking Dream time also become important, for how we want to shape our future world..
    Blessings your way πŸ’š

    1. I am not surprised that you often try to analyze them with a name like Sue DREAMWALKER! I also believe in our waking dreams. Something that was a very big part of my TEDx Talk and my daily conversations with students – and the subtitle of my psychology blog “Don’t be chased by your problems, be LED BY YOUR DREAMS”. Now you have me thinking and analyzing… thank you Sue for the full circle deep thoughts! I feel your blessings. Have a wonderful Thursday! ❀️❀️
