One of my first spiritual advancement tools was dream work. I didn’t know at the time how important this one, very natural state during sleep would ultimately awaken me. It is still something I use religiously because it is so accurate and fascinating.
How to Remember Your Dreams
In order to use your dreams, you first have to remember them. Here are some ways to remember these sacred messages……
1. Keep a journal right next to your bed on the end table or somewhere you can get to it easily.
2. When you are in the between place where you are not yet asleep but are not fully awake, ask your higher self to help you remember your dreams. Set the intention: “I will remember my dreams, I will remember my dreams” (Don’t get frustrated if it doesn’t happen the first night or week. Keep setting this attention nightly.)
3. If you wake up out of a dream, get to your journal immediately no matter what time it is. Write it down immediately! If you don’t it will go into never-never land. I have written dreams many times in the middle of the night. Do this again in the morning if you wake up out of a dream. If you feel you can’t write the whole dream, write down some keywords in your half waking state that will trigger the dream in the morning.
4. Sometimes, a dream will not become conscious until we are doing something mundane in our day. Then all of a sudden the memory of a dream will surface. Stop what you’re doing to write it down either in a notebook or on your phone. Most of us have smartphones with this capability.
Turning Your Dreams into a Working Tool
At the end of each week read all your significant dreams. You’ll know the difference because these are more vivid and leave a lasting impression on your feelings and mind. You are looking for a pattern. Remember that dreams are just visions that are happening in an unconscious state. The first step to having visions in your waking state is to give credence to the sleep state dreams. They matter and will show you what you are creating in your life.
Next, write down the feel and pattern of the dreams at the end of each week. Ask yourself a few questions: What pattern does each of these dreams follow? What feeling did the dreams leave behind just before or after I woke up? Is there a familiar feeling or a new feeling behind them? What message overall am I getting?
Do your best with the interpretation. The above questions will help you to decode your dreams. Now, wait, and allow the dreams to show their messages to you in your waking life. You do not dream for no reason. Your higher self and inner spirit teachers are working with you to help you change, grow and become awakened. The best way for them to do this is in your sleep state first.
Continue this process regularly and watch how quickly things change or how much more aware you become of your consciousness. If you also work with meditation in your waking state, this is a powerful combination and something I would suggest if you’ve not already started.
