What do my dreams mean? + healing old relationships

I had a vivid dream about an old friend last night…

Pretty much all of  my dreams are vivid…

…the ones you wake up and feel like you really had the experience…

Ever since I was a little girl I read dream books and wrote in a journal and was very interested and intrigued by the symbolism of dreams… astral projections…different levels of sleep…I always knew there was importance to our dreams and that it was the time our subconscious minds ran rampant…

…I would, also,  most nights, before I went to sleep, pray pray pray to God, “Lord, please do not let me have any bad dreams…please let me only have good dreams…”

I got into the habit of this because there would be mornings that I would wake up and be horrified… you know the ones where your eyes open and you can’t move your body for a few milli-seconds..

…but you are still so scared?

I had all the scary dreams of being chased and not being able to move any faster…I had scary dreams where people would be lying about who they were and there I was in a room with them and they were not good people… such fear!

A few times I have dreamt that I would float out into space, and see the earth get smaller and smaller… these dreams were the most terrifying because I remember the feeling of being…not just alone…but….left…not being able to be helped….

I would somehow shake myself out of it and slowly move back closer to earth and wake up in my room, and be terrified…

And the dreams are typically not terrifying…

The Flying…

I have to say that I am one of the lucky ones… I have had flying dreams for as long as I can remember!!

I fly everywhere and it’s often times my go-to way of travel… I run, jump  like a Power Ranger and take off… some people soar and I never used to soar when I was growing up…For most of my life I have flown like a frog swims… this is how I would stay up in the air…

Now, I soar a little more…. pretty cool….

My dreams now and what they mean

Many of my dreams take place at my grandparents’ old house… this recent one was no different…

Within the past year, I have recognized and put forth a great practice in decifering and learning from my dreams…

1.) Rather than taking the symbolism from a book, I take note of what the things and people in my dreams mean to me, and most importantly, how I felt in  my dreams…

If I dream about an old friend, I recognize what that person could represent to me…

and then I’ve noticed that, for one in particular, the dynamic of the relationship and how I felt in the dream…has changed…

I’m confident that I’ve actually worked things out in areas of my life to the point that my dreams are different…

This has given me confidence and belief…it’s reassurance that I’m making progress in my work… and growing as a person…. forgiving….and expanding….

2.) If I have a vivid dream about someone I used to know, rather than analyze the relationships I once had with them, I take the opportunity to be grateful for the time I spent with them…and pray for them….

We are all brought into each others’ lives for one reason or another…we may never truly understand but we can believe, and have faith, that our energies were attracted to, and connected with each other at one point…and with energy, we will always be connected…

We cannot know for sure why we were close with people at one point but we can believe and have faith that, for whatever the reason, we were meant to cross paths…we were attracted to one another and I have plenty of people who have left footprints in my soul…and I in theres….

So, rather than grieve over the loss of a friendship…or relationship…or someone who I thought this about or that about, or wanted this or that for…or from…. (there can be a time to grieve but we must move on from that time)…

I make it a point to strengthen my faith that we will always be connected…and when their face crosses my mind….our time together crosses my mind….or I have a vivid dream about them…. I take it as a sign to pray for their peace and happiness… and express gratitude for the time we spent together…and for the person I am today because of experiences we shared together…
