Dreams are a wonderful thing.
Sometimes we get swept in the ocean of sweet dreams.
But sometimes, we wonder what it all mean.
Some say that it means nothing at all.
Others say that there is a spiritual meaning to it.
When it comes down to dreams, only our interpretation can distinguish between the nothings and the hidden meanings behind it.
Everyone Dreams at Night
You dream every night. Your neighbor dreams every night.
Even if someone says “I don’t dream” or “I never remember my dreams”, they are still dreaming at night even if they are not aware of it.
Dreams are not only important for our general wellness, it can tell us about our soul progression.
Nathaniel Kleitman, professor of physiology at the University of Chicago, stated that dreams occur during REM sleep, a rapid eye movement that take place when dreaming.
So if you are having REM sleep, which is part of the necessary sleep cycle, then you are dreaming.
He found that people are being consciously and subconsciously influenced by their dreams, whether or not you remembered them.
Carl Jung considered dreams a way to know the hidden aspects of the self.
“The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul.”
In fact, dreams inspired Einstein to develop the theory of relativity.
Thomas Edison, too, found his ideas in his dreams.
The 7 Types of Dreams and their Hidden Meanings
There are many types of dreams.
Each one is unique to the dreamer, this is why no one could interpret your dreams for you.
But by knowing what type of dream we are having, we will be able to become aware of our hidden activities.
These are the normal, regular dreams we find ourselves in.
The brain goes into processing mode each night to reorganize our events and memories.
It could be wonderful, magical, chaotic, or even down-right embarrassing.
We can find ourselves floating in the sky going nowhere.
Or when you had a cheesecake right before bed, you can have chaotic pictures.
This is due to digestion.
It also tells us of our mental troubles and worries from our lives.
This includes daydreams and nightmares.
Brain dreams are basically nonsense and have no meaning, except the ones in our external life.
It’s a dream drifting in the indifferent universe.
Have you ever dreamed about something that later happened?
Precognitive dreams are usually a warning about something in the future.
It is also known as a premonition or prophetic dreams.
The first time I was aware of my precognitive dream, I was warned about the separation of an old relationship.
Although I ignored it, I didn’t think it would happen.
But it did after 3 months, exactly as it was seen.
Precognitive dreams are more vivid and follow a logical sequence, almost as if you could see it in a movie theater.
Notice when your dream come true and you will find yourself predicting your future more often.
Dreams of Past Lives
Sometimes our dreams take us to a time before our reincarnation, to a life far in the distant past.
It is a retrospective outlook where you are observing through someone else’s life.
You could even say that you are, for the moment, entering a past life regression unconsciously.
A Past Life dream is not only more vivid than precognitive dreams, it allows you to feel and become the person in that time.
There was a 7-year-old boy who remembers his experience as a soldier in the Great War, his previous name, and how he died.
With this, one can recollect a memory of a past life with profound details.
When you have lucid dreams, you realize you are dreaming.
When you realize you are dreaming, you can manipulate the dream.
You become a creator of your own dream and do pretty much anything.
If you learn to guide yourself in your dream, you also learn to direct situations in your external life.
Allegorical dreams are dreams with allegory and symbolism.
Psychologists would have you believe that the subconscious is speaking to you in symbols.
Although this may be true, allegorical dreams are dreams of messages that can come from your own mind and from beyond the realms.
The messages are usually objects, people, words, or surroundings that impress us, that appear important to us.
What does seeing a golden watch, a dog on top of a house, a blouse in dark roses could mean?
Whatever they are, they mean something important to you.
A golden watch could mean something of great importance in your financial life.
Yet, to someone else it could mean a reminder of his father, his self-esteem, or a premonition toward future events where there is a golden watch.
These messages are different and unique to each person.
Therefore, it is unwise to seek a psychic or an interpretive dream book to figure out your allegorical dreams.
Sometimes, your symbolical dreams can be messages from higher realms, from your Higher Self, or from Cosmic Consciousness itself.
Allegorical dreams are common, but since many people don’t think in symbolism anymore and rely on concrete facts, they never find out what their dreams mean.
When an allegorical dream is recurring, we should give more attention to it because it is a message that is trying to get across to you.
Astral dreams are fragmented memories of your Higher Self.
When the body is asleep, the awareness of your Higher Self escapes the prison of the body and perform its duties outside of the body.
We may get a glimpse of our Higher Self’s experience while the body is asleep.
But what the Higher Self do is well beyond our knowing.
It is like staring in front of a building and seeing a shadow passing behind you.
When you turn your head around to the shadow, it is already gone.
Astral dreams are not our dreams. But if we witness an astral experience, it is a sight to see.
It is, however, a very rare occurrence to the memory of the physical body.
But with practice, we can learn to recognize the dream of our astral experiences.
You feel like you just woke up in your bed and walk your way to work.
Then something happens and you jump out of bed.
Thank goodness it’s only a dream.
So you wake up in your bed and you find yourself rushing for the same office…in your undies!
Now you find yourself waking up in your bed again, but this time you pinch yourself to see whether you are dreaming.
Although it is rare to see a regular inception, it does occur and can make us paralyze in our physical body because we believe we are actually waking up.
Some children can have wet dreams because they believed they got up and went to the bathroom already.
This could leave you with the feeling of déjà vu in your waking life.
Are You Dreaming?
We are all dreaming, the question is, are you aware of your dreams?
And which dreams do you frequently have?
