I’d be completely lying to you if I said I understood dreams, why they happen and what they mean. Ever since I was little, I vividly remember my dreams. It is funny looking back, because I wasn’t able to sleep in my own room for most of my childhood. My parents floor was my bed. Still, when I have a hard time sleeping or I need to clear my energy, I put a pillow up against my nightstand and blankets on the floor, and I normally go right to sleep.
I remember when I would wake up from a nightmare, run to my parents room and set up my bed, my Mom would say, “Ok. You know what we need to do. Go to your happy place, what do you see?” I’d normally reply the beach or my grandparents lake house. “Ok, if your on the beach, focus on the colors. Tell me about the kite, does it have 2 tails or one?” My mom would have me describe everything until I was so happy in my little happy place, I effortlessly fell asleep. My mom’s pretty awesome. You see- she didn’t know it then, but she was teaching me meditation. She was teaching me how to reach the colors, and be still and happy.
The dreams when I was little always scared of the dreams with people I didn’t know, or when I’d go to places I’d never been. How could you see something you’ve never seen. There were a couple of huge dreams I still remember to this day. #1 Clifford. Scared the SH*T out of me. I had a dream every night for weeks that Clifford was trying to get into my room and attack me. Silly, right? Yeah, well as silly has it, 3 weeks later our neighbors lab ran down from the side of the hill (the same place Clifford sat) and trampled me. I say attacked, although I didn’t have any serious physical injuries – I’m just still terrified of dogs.
Dreams for me are a huge part of what I do. HUGE. They have predicted so many things in my life, and my family. One time, I was hanging out with someone and I just kept having this dream she was going to be so mad at me for something she’d call me up and scream at me. In my dream I had done nothing wrong. For months, I walked around on eggshells because I kept having the dream, but I cared deeply for this person. 3 Months in, it happened. Just like that. The entire dream played out. LESSON: No matter what you dream – don’t try and prevent it (unless they tell you too in the dream).
When Spirit tells you they need your help in a dream, that’s my sign and symbol for DO IT – if you feel it. I’ve had dreams about Ex’s being in the wrong place at the wrong time and something terrible happening. In the dream Spirit told me, “Well you knew and you didn’t stop it.” But that “Ex” was no good for me, and he was certainly not going to come back around in my life. So, I had my friend google him and make sure he was ok. He was, so I felt I did what I needed to do. I told Spirit, if you need me to say something, put it in my dreams. I haven’t dreamt about it since- so sometimes you just have to be clear what you’re willing to do for Spirit, and that it won’t bring your life down.
Last example: I kept dreaming about a teacher I had in high school. Now this teacher was a HUGE part of my life. He was part of my outpatient Eating Disorder treatment team. He told my nutritionist he would eat lunch with me every day and sit with me 30 minutes after so I didn’t go puke it up. He had a relationship with my parents, and he literally kept my lunches in my stomach that entire year. I cared deeply for him, even though I somewhat resented him then (I had a serious eating issue), I respect and appreciate the time he took out of his life to help a 15 year old girl be decently OK. So my dreams started, that he was out surfing and all the sudden he was screaming for help – holding his heart. The dreams kept happening, different situations every time. So then I just got to a point I couldn’t take it anymore. I begged Spirit for an answer because I’d over googled him, and the man is not on Facebook or anything. I said, how can I contact him? That night, I dreamt I was at a computer, typing an e-mail, with his e-mail address clearly seen at the top. I jumped out of bed, and wrote down the e-mail. I e-mailed him the next day, and he replied. ALL is well, and I really think the purpose of the e-mail was to reconnect and talk about Mediumship. But hey, I could be wrong, but I know 100% I did my part for someone I care about.
SO – Dreams – can be a lot of things. My dreams are prophetic, and often tell me what’s up from Spirit Land. You’re dreams may be too. So here are some tips & tricks to help you along in figuring out what your dreams are.
Dream Castle – Every night before I go to bed, I make sure I have a journal and pencil next to my bed. (phone would work too). I then start from my feet and go all the way up to my head, surrounding myself in the white light. Once I start to relax, I envision walking down into an underground shelter (I like to call it my Dream Castle because I’m claustrophobic). Down there I am greeted by my horses, my cats, and guides/loved ones. I shut the door and know that no one can get in or out of this underground castle. I do this to keep my physical body from sleep spirit walking, and my spiritual body from having dreams that don’t relate to me. My dream state is on the clock, people! 🙂 When you wake up – you won’t be wandering somewhere naked (oops) and you will have had some meaningful dreams.
Selenite – Selenite is a great crystal I keep next to my bedside. I keep it there to cleanse the energy around me. So no matter what’s happening outside the window or next to me, by the time it reaches my Aura it has gone through the selenite and won’t affect my dream state.
Family Guy – I CANNOT go to sleep after watching anything intense/scary/murder/mystery etc. Matter of fact, I can’t really fall asleep if I have even had an intense day without it affecting my dream state. So, nightly I watch an episode of Family Guy or American Dad and honest to God, it helps my sleep state so much. I’ve normally had a few giggles and my emotional state has been lifted. I sleep much better after an episode or two. Thank you Seth MacFarlane, you’ve made this Medium very happy!
5 Minutes, Please – Just ask my family, if you try and wake me up in the middle of the night/morning, it takes me awhile to adjust. Give yourself some extra time in the mornings to wake up. I have a fit bit so I set it for about 15 minutes before I actually need to get up. I open my eyes and just slowly come back to planet Earth. If I wake up immediately, I literally can’t remember anything and I have no idea what I’m doing. So I take my time adjusting and get up slowly. Trust me – it makes the day a whole lot better!
If you have any questions about your dreams – I suggest looking at the website www.dreammoods.com or watching an episode of ‘Medium’. All seven seasons are on Netflix. And as always, feel free to contact me.
