Good morning Joseth, good morning Roy.
Roy, I want to talk about sleep and dreaming. Sleep is something that all living things have in common. Sleep is a time of rejuvenation for the body. In rest, the body has time to concentrate on healing itself. Poor sleeping habits result in illness, so the body must regenerate.
Your soul does not require the same physical rest. It does not sleep. At the time of sleep your soul leaves the body. Your soul is so confined in the body and longs to be free from it. As your soul leaves your body in your dream state, it expands and feels the freedom that it once had. During this period of freedom, it travels to several different dimensions. Your soul is part of a group or spirit family that shares a commonality and is in constant contact with each other. Information is shared. Problems are worked out in this group.
Because the soul group exists in several dimensions of time and space, all existing simultaneously, your physical mind has difficulty interpreting it in human physical terms. In your dreams, these interpretations are seen as symbols, that may exist in your past, present or future. Weird shapes and circumstances that have little meaning to you on a conscious level are experienced, that is why your mind shifts so quickly in your dreams from one experience to another. Your mind is trying to make sense of it in human physical terms.
Personal problems that you are currently having are being worked out in this dream state. They are being collaborated on by your multifaceted soul group, sort of a family meeting. Studying dreams can be quiet enjoyable and educational. In more practical terms you can make use of your dream state and your connections with your soul group in asking for help to work out solutions for problems you may be having. You can ask for this help before you go to sleep. The answer will be made aware to you, sometime during the day. With practice and some awareness, you will be able to witness some of these segments being worked out for you in your dreams.
As you may be aware of, I belief that spirituality must have practibility in my conscious life. I must be able to use my awareness of my dream state to help create what I desire in my conscious state. The dream state is such a resource. I have kept dream diaries, and I know I can see patterns, that I can relate to.
I have not had enough experience interpreting my dreams, but my awareness is increasing and I am getting answers during the day, and most often during my writing period in the morning.
The dream state is a wonderful forum for working things out in a safe environment. It is useful and practical and one of the most obvious and ignored resources for you. Itís a wonderful tool that requires practice to make good use of it. Those that fear their dreams in a conscious state, will experience that fear in the dream state. Those that open their minds and accept their dreams as positive, will open a door to unlimited knowledge and experience. All is possible in a dram state, all can be experienced. The impossible can be tried, recreated and experienced. Dreams can be run and re-run and orchestrated by you. Lucid dreams are very exciting, and opens channels that you would never think possible. Itís a huge play ground with no rules, and a safe environment.
Become active in your dreams, and watch the changes in your life. There is tremendous growing potential for you when you are nourished by your dreams.
