“Dreams always come to bring us to a deeper experience of the divine, and they always start wherever the sense of transcendent presence is broken or injured.” Jeremy Taylor (Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill)
Understanding and working with our dreams is an integral part of our Spiritual Journey. Our dreams encourage authenticity and give us information to help us become more of who we are. But first, we have to listen to those messages, then we must act on them.
There are three main types of dreams
- Housekeeping Dreams:
Often based on current events
Occur to help you “get your house in order”.
They suggest ways to deal with issues in your life.
- Archetypal Dreams:
Relate to a universal energy system – the collective.
Reveal your current or desired primordial state.
- Pre-cognitive & Superconscious Dreams (Psychic)
Often there is no clue the dream is pre-cognitive until after the event has occurred.
You may feel shocked or surprised on awakening with an urge to call someone to verify.
Superconscious dreams may bring images from other realities.
The dream may be unusually vivid, with an obvious reference.
Loved ones crossed-over or light-beings may be present.
The dream may be inspiring and meaningful with a relevant mode of application.
The symbols of our dreams are the universal language of our soul.
Dreams can expose our worries, diagnose our ailments, reveal thoughts and emotions we have tried to ignore, and suggest improvements
in relationship. They can assist out creativity and evolution on personal, soulful and universal levels.
- All dreams come in the service of health and wholeness.
- No dream comes to tell the dreamer what they already know.
- Only the dreamer can say with any certainty what meanings her dream holds.
- The dreamer’s “aha!” of recognition is a function of a previously unconscious memory and is the only reliable touchstone of dreamwork.
- There is no such thing as a dream with out meaning.
- Dreams speak a Universal language of metaphor & symbol.
- All dreams reflect inborn creativity and ability to face and solve life’s problems. They reflect the dreamer’s “psychospiritual development towards individuation” & deeper communion with the archetypal energies of the “collective unconscious”. (Jung)
- All dreams reflect society as a whole, as well as the dreamer’s relationship to it.
- Working with dreams regularly improves relationships.
