Like sexual innuendo, dreams are often the subject matter of jokes and frequently are dismissed as circumstantial evidence that our bodies and minds conjure bizarre by-products. But do these whispers in the night truly deserve such unexamined criticism?
Contrary to these ‘sophisticated’ modern attitudes, dreams have been a topic of interest throughout history, and have significantly influenced almost every aspect of all cultures on earth. Comparatively few people explore their dreams today and subsequently don’t realize the wealth of knowledge, wisdom and practicality the dream state holds for each of us.
On the most basic level, dreams are a source of inspiration and creativity. Visionary artist William Blake was taught how to paint in his dreams. William Butler Yeats, Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, William Burroughs, Jack Kerouac, Franz Kafka, and many other authors, depended on their dreams for content in their poetry, novels and films. One author has six published novels based on stories people in her dreams told her. Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight saga, first encountered her highly successful characters in a dream.
Not only do dreams enhance our artistic life but the world has benefited in numerous ways from the practical knowledge received in dreams. American Civil War heroine, Harriet Tubman, dreamed of safe passageways for the transportation of escaped slaves to the North. Admiral George S. Patton used battle plans he received in dreams during WWII to win the war. Rene Descartes dreamed up a new philosophy and mathematics. Frederic Banting discovered how to make insulin for diabetics in a dream. Elias Howe learned how to design the sewing machine needle in his dreams. All of these dreams and many others tremendously influenced the advancement of modern society.
The primary reason to recall dreams, however, is for our personal advancement. Dreams are a form of communication between the spiritual and temporal components of our being. They are multi-dimensional, multi-time portals that introduce us to our souls, our source and the innate abilities of consciousness.
Ten life changing benefits of recalling your dreams are:
- A complete guide to your emotional state and beliefs.
There are many varieties of dreams. Some dreams are a reflection of your state of mind and beliefs. These dreams provide insight in the form of words and images of what you believe to be true and how this is affecting your emotional life. Use this tool to understand yourself and modify anything that you would like to see improved.
- Visiting the font of wisdom and knowledge.
Dreams can be specifically incubated to discover solutions to problems. Prior to sleep ask for want you want—to heal yourself, heal a relationship, determine a meaningful path for you to follow, etc.—and discover what the field of wisdom advises or what transformations transpire. The subconscious mind, the higher self, your guides and sources, or if you prefer, the natural laws of the universe, will provide pertinent responses to your queries.
- Communication with distant friends.
Frequently distance or a veil of dimensions separates us from those we love. This gap can be breached through the dream state. If you want to communicate with those far from you, reach out to them in the dream state.
- Foreknowledge of future events.
One little known aspect of the dream state is that many dreams are precognitive. Dreams will warn you of potential mishaps, glories, and various events you will encounter in the future. Recalling your dreams prepares you to meet these potential life events.
- Dimensional travel through space and time.
Dreams allow you to travel through space and time without any impact on your physical body or your pocketbook. You can visit foreign countries, other planets, and distant future and past time periods. Follow the example of Leonardo Da Vinci and discover future ‘modern’ inventions.
- Access to other lives.
Frequently dreams will introduce you to what appear to be other lives you have lived. Do you have an affinity for the Alaskan outback or do you love Chinese food? Maybe you once lived and are being influenced by subconscious memories of lives in those settings. Your dreams allow you experience lives in any era.
- Experience other lifeforms.
The beauty of the dream state is that you can experience anything you want there. Have you ever wondered what it is like to fly like a bird or swim like a dolphin? You can do so without growing physical wings or fins—just do it in the dream state. The dream state allows you to experience anything you want, even what it is like to be a different form of life.
- Immediate energy boosts.
Dreams can instantly transform your level of energy. Not only can you experience unconditional love or any kind of love you desire, but you can also experience worlds of unbelievable beauty, serenity, and fantastic enjoyable venues. Stress and depressed moods can be eradicated with frequent tromps through the unlimited wonders of dream worlds.
- Mystical and spiritual educational opportunities.
The dream state often offers mystical and spiritual events that will inspire, enlighten and transform your life forever. Magical things happen in the dream state. Epiphanies are rampant in dreams and can renovate your life and the lives around you.
- Knowledge of how the soul/consciousness works.
Throughout the investigation of dreams, you begin to comprehend the complexity, the simplicity, and the magnificent way that your soul and consciousness functions. Excursions into the dream state are one of the most important, evolutionary things you can do in your life.
