“We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”– William Shakespeare
Do you ever feel like when dreaming —as you slip into your dreamscape world, the thoughts, images and feelings from your existing reality form into a fantastical collage or morph into a jumbled storyline? As if the details and feelings of your day, a continuation in your dream in an odd and sometimes surprising way. And it resonates with a palpable emotion?
Our dreams are an emotional barometer and guide to what we are feeling.
We are all energy, creating with our thoughts—whether awake or asleep. But in dreams the canvas expands and we can glimpse a far bigger picture of the limitlessness of all that is. And it is here too we can tap into our emotions and help ourselves connect with our greater inner being.
We can access possibilities and answers when dreaming to all that we are seeking.
Dreams are a wonderful indicator of what our subconscious mind is focused on. For when our mind quiets and ego goes off-line—no longer standing guard to dismiss something as “just a dream” or “not real” —there is less resistance to what we are truly feeling. And it is here we get to the heart of the matter. What perhaps has been puzzling us or weighing on our mind. And it too is a way to access solutions that we are seeking as we are more at peace to allow the landscape of the dream to expand and offer possibilities.
Our dreams are an emotional barometer helping us crystalize what we are truly feeling.
When we wake and remember the details of our dream, we can get a true sense of our emotional state to honor a real feeling. This is what helps guide, enlighten and heal. Sleep is the perfect time to connect with images, inspiration, messages that inform and expand our consciousness as well as release things that are taking us out of being aligned with peace, joy, love. In our subconscious state we can do this more easily than when we are awake bumping up against our beliefs and the reality that we are seeing around us.
How Dreaming Can Bring Healing
Our dreams connect us with our inner self and what we are feeling —and often loved ones, guides, and loving beings on the Other Side.
Recently I did a reading for a client who shared that his mother had appeared the night before in his dream. It was fortuitous. A beautiful opportunity to connect again with a loved one across the realms to expand understanding around the heart. No coincidence that the client was struggling to make sense of the same emotion that had shaped so much of his mother’s life as well. And her coming forward was an opportunity to delve into that emotion, as difficult as it might be, with new understanding for both him and his mother.
And healing happened.
I have felt the mother since. (For once we connect with a spirit, we can always connect. It is like having a friend’s cell number and they have yours.) She was so grateful that my client and I brought her into our awareness. Just speaking about her opened an opportunity to delve into a strong emotion that both my client and she experienced and to see it in a more expanded way.
And then to reflect on it in a space of self-love and gentleness—without judgement. (For we are all doing the best we can do at the time—until that changes. For every moment changes.) It is not having to replay or relive trauma or pain, but to allow the emotion to just be. To own it and then release it with a newfound compassion. And healing happened for both my client and his mother on the Other Side.
Healing is always a two-way street and always goes through the heart.
What his mother shared with me is that our reading lightened her further on the Other Side. And later my client told me how much freer and lighter he felt after our reading—honoring this emotion while letting go of the weight and tightness that he had felt.
When we allow self-love, self-forgiveness, self-care—we loosen what is weighing us down and constricting all that can be possible.
We release the weight that we carry in our hearts and lives. And what we do for our self, we do for others—as we are more interconnected than we can imagine. We heal our self as well as others—even those on the Other Side who are no longer with us in the physical sense, but always with us in spirit. For we are eternal beings—wherever we are, on this side or the other—ever evolving, growing, expanding.
So, what is in your dreams?
It is in our dreams and through dreaming – that we can help bring our own desires into our reality. To perhaps heal something on our heart or get onto to manifesting what we desire. To visualize in our dreams what we are seeking.
To ask ourselves quietly before we slip off into slumber, whatever we are seeking or curious about or sifting through with heart and mind. This puts it in our dream hopper to delve into in whatever way it is to unfold. For when we are offline, we are connected to the extraordinary of the universe that brings forward inspiration and images to help us get onto our intended path. It gifts us with insights in the most wondrous of ways even if the messages might not always appear easy nor light. And it is here too that we heal and come into the wholeness that we have always been—a magnificent creator of our own reality.
