As previously stated, everybody has dreams regardless of where we are,
our upbringing or personal opinions. Many of us don't recollect dreams
when we wake up, and normally we feel energized. Sometimes we wake up
feeling exhausted or tired, and it's due to the type of dream(s) we had
during the night. The number of dreams we have during sleep varies from
person to person. An important aspect of dreams is the symbolism incorporated
in the experience. Symbolism is the way our subconscious mind communicates
and the symbols in my dreams are different from yours due to the upbringing
I had (traditional or cultural), as well as personal and influential beliefs.
If for example Mr. X comes from a very traditional-minded family, and
in his adult life he has religious tendencies, then his dreams will often
have religious and cultural symbolism.
When we fall into deep sleep, it's because
our bodies are physically and/or mentally exhausted. That doesn't mean
that we don't dream. Due to exhaustion, our spiritual body requires an
immense amount of energy to be regained, and even if we dream we don't
remember due to the process taking place. Sometimes deep sleep may occur
even if we are not exhausted. When that happens, then the dreams we have
are of a psychic nature. Before we conclude or determine the type of dream
we had, we must keep in mind that certain physical factors may transform
a good dream into a bad one. Factors such as sleep posture, sleeping garments,
the type of food we ate before sleep time, room temperature and our physical
health can modify the true meaning of a dream into something else. Another
thing to keep in mind is that all dreams are projections and these in
turn are of different types. Below I'm briefly describing some of the
dreams we have. Please note that my terminology might be different from
others, but we all share the same knowledge.
Dream in which you know that you are dreaming is called a 'lucid dream'.
It generally happens when you realize during the course of a dream
that you are dreaming, perhaps because something strange or unexpected
occurs. These types of dreams may reveal personal information as you
observe the development of the dream through the expression of your
feelings while being aware that you are dreaming. A lucid dream may
develop directly or indirectly into an OBE. Sometimes during lucid
dreaming we loose concentration for a brief period of time.
are created by ourselves as the reality we want. Dream reality is
removed from physical reality as a prearranged series of events in
which we play a role. It's like being an actor in a movie. However,
there are different variations of ordinary or common dreams which
differ due to personal desires or influential substances within the
body. For example, if we are using a prescribed drug or medicine due
to a certain illness, this might have certain side effects which the
body is not accustomed to and when we dream, it may change the entire
meaning of an experience. Other ordinary dreams are influenced due
to our individual personality or desires.
a nightmare might shake us up, they should not be taken literally,
as they may only be warning for a potential event. However, nightmares
may also occur due to a preoccupation with solving a problem or if
experiencing the side effects of a medicine we are taking. Certain
foods can also trigger nightmares. Some bad experiences we had in
the past could also be recalled by our subconscious mind in the present
through nightmares. Nightmares are very different from reincarnation
dreams that contain negative experiences.
we are having an ordinary dream and some of the characters protect
us, we are being contacted by our Spirit Guides. Protection may take
shape through a helping hand or communication. The Entities in these
dreams are in fact our Spirit Guides, which we all have throughout
our lifetimes. When communication takes place we don't feel scared
or shy as subconsciously we know them from other realities. These
dreams differ from mediumship because they start and end as ordinary
dreams, and in between we are introduced to Entities wishing to communicate.
we all belong to the same Origin, a person may have the same dream
as another due to the Universal Consciousness we all share.
the Astral Body separates itself from the physical self and travels
to a particular place or event, the experience is referred to as an
Out of Body Experience. OBEs are of many types, such as Interdimensional
projection, NDEs and others.
dreams or Veridical dreams - these dreams have a definite impact on
us as we remember them quite vividly. They represent future events
that are being foreseen or foretold.
dreams - the dreamer receives information from another person, either
living or dead, but pertaining to the present. The message may come
from a distance.
dreams or past life dreams are dreams in which an individual sees
himself/herself going through actions or places with which he or she
is not familiar in present existence. These dreams differ from mystical
experiences as they are normally in black and white. Mystical experiences
of past lifetimes are a form of OBE and may be triggered through a
form of trance or hypnotic regression. What we experience is very
dreams - these dreams allows the dreamer to perceive things beyond
the natural range of senses which trigger extrasensory perception
(ESP). In other words the dream creates a keen intuitive understanding
of places or events related or unrelated to the person.
