Dreams: Unlocking the Mystery and Power
Dreams- what we want our lives to be, the careers we have, the relationships we would like to have in our lives or perhaps where we will live and experience life. Dreams we have for loved ones.
Dreams – the movie that plays at night or perhaps images, numbers or feelings.  Romance, Nightmares, Nature, mysterious images not defined by our sense of reality.
Today let’s explore the dreams of nighttime wonder and begin the first step toward our exploration!
Yes, Dreams have been around since the beginning of time, the interesting journey is the understanding of the mystery surrounding those images and the segments that are experienced during the night.
Dreams have a history as far back as Ancient civilizations, Native American Culture, all cultures and even in the Old and New Testament. Messages received in dreams were often used for decisions in cultures and tribes; Dreams were also used for healing. When the cycles of nature and man were aligned the communication through night time dreaming was a place of learning, teaching, inspiration and ability to receive answers on one’s life and direction. Scientists to Psychologists to Metaphysicians to Individuals all have studied researched or experienced dreams that provided significant findings and profound experiences.
My personal experiences and studying of dreams, dream recall, dream techniques as well as the meaning of dreams has shifted and positively impacted my life. My desire is that your dreams do the same for you!
So, what are you dreaming about? Are the dreams pleasant or would you consider them nightmares?
The question may be:  Where do I begin to understand the messages of my dreams?
Time for Me Now to suggest some tips and resources to further expand the exploration of your dreams:
Explore your attitude regarding dreaming. Believe that your dreams are important, that the images or movie being played during dream state have messages for you. Value your dreams as messages. Embrace and Love your Nightmares, yes you read that correctly! Nightmares are messages as well and have the propensity to support us being strong, healthy, and confident!
