Dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's questions. ~Edgar Cayce
Whenever I get an idea regarding something I want to accomplish I push forward to make it happen. Unfortunately all of ideas do not receive support or if I am honest with myself they were just wishful thinking. That is why I personally seek guidance by using many of the tools from my tool box before moving forward with a new idea.
One of my most powerful tools is writing down my dreams. There are Messages from my dreams that often greatly influence my personal and spiritual growth. The key to understanding these messages is to dissect the message into key symbols and look up the meaning of those symbols. I use two resources to get insight into what these symbols are saying to me. One is The Dream Book Symbols for Self-understanding by Betty Berthards and the other is a website dreambible.com .
Once I write down the dream I give it a title. I gave the following dream the title “I Can See Clearly.” Tom Hanks was interviewing me in a large room. I was looking right into his eyes as I answered his questions. He said “Tell me about your career.” I said “I was the top creative marketer in the state” then corrected myself and said “in the country.” He then asked me “Why weren’t you an executive for the company?” I loss eye contact with him and felt uncomfortable with my answer as I said, “I did not have a lot of higher education.”
The following are the symbols I pulled from the dream to better understand the message I was receiving:
I really connected with this dream. It supported one of the postings I have on our 2017 Vision Board. My wife and I attended a luncheon seminar given by a doctor that gave my wife great insight into correcting a wellness issue. After that workshop we both said that we wanted to attend more lectures, retreats and workshops this year. That dream gave me the reassurance that we are moving in the right direction to living life to the fullest.
Many people will tell me they do not remember their dreams or they remember just parts of their dreams but forget them as soon as they get out of bed. To get started in using this tool it is best to have a notebook and pen on your nightstand. Write anything you remember about a dream immediately. Prepare yourself for tonight's dreams by putting that notebook on your nightstand. You will be surprised about how much you remember once you start writing.
