The Importance of Dreaming

By

It’s interesting to realize that we spend approximately 6-8 hours of our daily life sleeping.  When you add that up over a lifetime, that’s almost 1/3 of our lives!  Along with all the benefits that sleep offers including rejuvenating the body, mind and spirit, there is another benefit that we sometimes don’t acknowledge, and that is dreaming.  However, most people don’t pay much attention to their dreams because they don’t understand them. They show up as apparently random situations with oddities that we could hardly think of on our own even if we tried.  The reason we don’t understand our dreams generally is because they come to us in symbolic form, they come as visitations in our original language, and that is the language of symbolism, story and metaphor.  If one starts to look at dreams symbolically, we realize that they are not so confusing after all.

 

 

The truth is that dreams come to us every night to help us work out issues from the day, give us guidance and to help heal us on deeper, more spiritual levels.  As you continue to pay more and more attention to your dreams, the more they reveal to you about your own psyche, state of mind, belief systems and how you truly feel about things.  In addition, dreams come to inform us about our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Working with the Law of Attraction, dreams allow us the ability to move into a deeper, feeling state. And, as we know, it is that emotional guidance system that helps us realize whether we are moving upstream, or going with the flow in our lives.   

 

If you have an interest in working with your dreams, one of the most important things required of you is your commitment to the process.  You will be making an investment in yourself, so be prepared to find some extra time in each day to dedicate to your dream life.  In getting started with dream work, it is very important to keep an open mind, and to be patient with yourself.  Sometimes it takes a while to train yourself to remember your dreams, but that is not always the case.  In order to start remembering your dreams, or just to have better recall of them, following are some suggestions that you may find helpful:

Consider a Little Media Break

By

Symbols and images are known to evoke deep emotional responses on all of us, which is why watching television shows including the News can be so addicting. Television and video game producers are masters at getting, and holding our attention, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, what you may not be aware of is the fact that the choices you make ... Read more

Choosing from Your Authentic Self

By

I am often asked the following question, “How do I learn to say “no” sometimes?”   As a Law of Attraction Life Coach, I believe that the best way to answer this question is to get to the core of it, which I believe is to ask instead, “Am I making this choice based on approval, or from my authentic self?”   Let ...

Preparing Food with Love, an Exercise in Mindfulness

I love food.  I don’t mean that I love it a little…I mean I LOVE it a lot.  And, over the years, I have realized how something seemingly as simple as cooking can make all the difference in a meal and in your environment.   Thinking back to when I was a young girl, I have the fondest memories of cooking with my parents, both of who ...
