All my life I have been fascinated by dreams. When I started keeping a dream journal, my dreams became more detailed and meaningful. Journaling our dreams and sharing them with family and friends can stimulate more dreams. Learning how to interpret them can be a fun part of the journey.
Here is an example of a beautiful dream I had of driving up a mountain with snow falling. When I reached the top of the mountain, I found a winter wonderland. Snow falling while ascending can symbolize a new beginning, a change in outlook, and being focused on achieving goals.
In another dream, I was on a beach watching a pod of whales swimming in the ocean along the horizon. This dream can mean a merging of the conscious and subconscious, seeing the spiritual side of existence and understanding the limitless potential and miracles in our lives.
In one of my favorite dreams, I watched a herd of elephants march down a river. Dreaming of animals led me to become interested in spirit animals (see my Spirit Animal Connection blog posts).
When I was in college, I had the same dream three consecutive times. In each dream I was driving a car and in the rearview mirror I saw blue lights flashing. This dream came true because a few days later I got a speeding ticket. I ignored the warning signs that my dreams were telling me to slow down not just in driving but in everything. Now my dreams take me on spiritual journeys and I wake up in awe.
If you would like to have more dreams and remember them when you wake up, I recommend that you talk to your angels/spirit guides before you go to bed. Let them know you want to remember your dreams. You can also leave a note under your pillow or on your bedside table. Your angels will get your message. You will need to keep a pen or pencil and a writing pad or journal next to your bed too. If you wake up after a dream, try not to turn on your bedside lamp because it will wake you up making it difficult to go back to sleep. Try using a small flashlight to see while you jot down some notes about your dream.
Here are a few questions to help you to describe your dream and remember it when you wake up in the morning:
A dream, that I'll never forget, was about being in the ocean. I remember every aspect of it as if it happened last night. The dream started out as I was in a rowboat. After quite some time, I stopped rowing and handed something that looked like an urn to someone. Then I dived off the rowboat into the water. I swam underwater for what felt like eternity. When I finally came up to the surface, I heard a voice say, “You need to decide.” At first, I did not know what this meant, but as soon as I brought my legs and feet to the surface, I saw that I was transforming into a mermaid. I made the decision to swim back to shore.
Wishing you countless nights of amazing sweet dreams!
