That is my question to you. Do dreams mean anything? So many perspectives. There are those like myself that swear by the stories that my dreams show me. At times, I trust more in my dreams than my waking life to tell me the truth of situations and weaknesses. Maybe it is harder to lie to yourself when your mind is able to meander without being monitored by our muddled waking mind. As I think about this it gives me ideas that I have not thought of until now. My dreams are always spitting up information that in my waking life I could really give 2 shits about. For example.... the one about a friend that spent ridiculous amount of money to try and win a girl, the one about another friend that stays up too late to play video games and his wife gets mad about this, the other one about an ex husbands wife having a miscarriage, the one about my moms roof leaking (I do care about that one.) The list is long. And all of these dreams where someones reality that I only found out where real after I called them when I woke. But, what about the dreams that are about myself, the dreams that when I wake up, I know they are telling me something. I always rush to write them down so that they are not lost. I will even find some dreaded soul to listen to me tell my dream out loud so that I can find the nuances in the words I say to help me find the clues in the story of the dream. I know I sound like a crazy person. I don't care though, because it always makes a difference in my life, it always helps me heal the next day or let me be prepared for what is to come next.
Going back to thoughts that I have never thought about. I have, as some of you, I am sure have, thought about how the mind can work differently in our sleep to offer up remedies for our waking life. Now, though, I am also thinking about our minds ability to monitor thoughts during our day that make us uncomfortable. Using the ability to twist things into a better, more comfortable perspective to whatever suits us at the time. Whether it be making a happy situation bad or the other way around. You know how some of us love to be miserable in-spite of the goodness around us. This would also work in that situation that we know we should not be going in a particular direction, but we want to anyways, so we create a story that suits the addiction, then we can stay in our groove and get the prize. Using this vein of thought, what if the web we weave while we are awake to carry out actions that our authentic self knows is detrimental to our spirits true walk are so.... mmm..I don't know.... tangled maybe. That... in our sleep as we untangle them. Dreams are not clear because it is trying to unfold itself from the deeply enmeshed mess of lies that we tell ourselves when we are awake. Whew, that was a mouthful. It makes sense to me, what about you? Are dreams in code because in our waking lives our lies to ourselves are in a sort of code too. None of it makes easy sense, but our gut can usually figure it out if we listen.
I think that I will be talking more about dreams this week, it is such a fun and healing topic. I look forward to your comments. See you soon.
