We can dream all sorts of dreams
Dreamland dreams continued
May God of the universe and the knowledge that exists in the universe about dreams help me say the right things in these dreamland writings?Welcome to this article, Dreamland dreams and beliefs, (hub 8) where we are going to explain dreams type two and three and then open the door of our spiritual dreams later on; this hub is the continuation of our previous hub, Menfranco Dreamland, therefore, hereunder is the continuation and explanation of dreams type two and three, as we haven’t able to do that yet.
So now, let us talk about sleeping dreams, type-two and three, since we have already classified dreams type one as being shallow dreams that seem bodily dreams.
These two types of dreams; normal mental dreams and deep psychological dreams, they are the real dreams that we dream and they seem strange sometimes, since as we have said we dream them when we seem to be in a deep sleep or waking up from a deep sleep; they could or would be called the dreams of our minds. These dreams seem completely detached from the present body needs that we might have at the time when we dream, and therefore they could not be explained easily like the bodily dreams type one, for this reason we don’t know how and why we dream such dreams. Of course these dreams may be from long past experience that surface in our mind while we are sleeping, or they may be of a psychological nature; so while our mind is at rest from our busy waking life, our brain tries to sort things out, and tries to make sense in its own way while we are asleep. Some of these dreams usually seem to remind us of long past events, or they may be very strange in nature and make no sense at all, if one compares them to real life. They are or seem to be a bit like the dream in type-one, but they are not because we can’t find the connection to our present body needs; but there could be a connection if we look for it in our life overall, and this connection is more mental than physical, or at least it seems so because there are also those things that our body requires but we are not aware of it, and there are our own beliefs that play a part in modifying our dreams.
All these things put together may easily create a problem for our mind so to speak, and this problem must be solved somehow, and our mind solves its own problem by dreaming these strange dreams. In my own personal experience I always feel more relaxed after dreaming something, sometimes I feel as if some chemical have been released in my brain; so, dreaming for us might be beneficial overall, even when we don’t understand why we have dreamed such dreams.
------------------------------------Understand these types of dreams
We have always tried to understand these types of dreams; as far as we can see, the normal mental dreams and the psychological dreams seem to come at the same level of awareness, therefore they can’t be separated easily, as they are both mental and therefore detached from our body needs, so they are not like type one and for this reason they are hard to explain.
Because of their nature, mankind has been interested for a very long time about their meanings. So, because of these dreams detached nature from our present bodily needs, and the belief about the possibility that our mind could be tuning-in to a different dimension, which could really exist and it is believed to be in the cosmic life-force of the whole universe, and also our afterlife world, and therefore the land of the dead, where the souls of our ancestor are supposed to be after death. Some people believe that our ancestors can communicate to us through these dreams, and they would give us coded messages since they are not allowed to tell us in a straightforward way, and worn us about what’s going to happen next, as they would or are supposed to know already everything before it happens.
Because of these beliefs, there are groups of people that have put special meanings in these dreams, and they think that it is possible to foretell some future events from our dreams.
There are in fact so many people that believe in their dreams, and some of them would be worried if they have had a bad dream, as they believe that the dream may have foretold them of an oncoming bad event. These believers of dreams would usually tell their dreams to their special close partners, relative or friends that believe in the same way; and by telling them their dreams, they hope that their friends would be able to help them find what those dreams could mean, but in the end everything remains as confuse as before.
What could that dream mean?
So, let us suppose that the dreams really have a message for the dreamer! Then: What could a certain dream mean to a certain person?
I don’t think that anybody could answer that positively, because the same dream may have a different meaning to a different person. Because the person that is telling the dream has got to take into consideration also his own feelings while he is dreaming, because I believe that his/her feelings are the most important part to consider understanding dreams: that is if one wants really to understand dreams. But the feelings of a dreamer can’t be passed on easily, and for this reason it is very hard to understand other people dreams, as they seem to be all over the place and meaningless to the listener. Because each individual has his own way of dreaming, and also of understanding dreams, and therefore he will dream his dreams according to his own beliefs and imagination, and it is for this reasons, that only the dreamer himself is the person that is most capable of understanding his own dreams.
There are some rules of course on how to know what your dreams might mean: But I haven’t tried to learn and to know them properly. So when I speak about the meanings of dreams, I speak only about my own life experience and what my mother and my grandma have told me when I was young, and also a few stories that I have heard around.
However, I believe that there could be some meanings in dreams, because if I dream a certain dream at night, and the day after something happens that seems very similar to my dream, I have to accept that my dream has foretold me the happening; What else can I do, and for that matter what else one would do?
I know that it is only afterward when something has taken place, that we are able to say that what has taken place is very much the same as our dream was, and therefore we believe that, that particular dream was meant to foretell us the oncoming event.
So, it is events like these that will make us always wonder and ask the questions, whether the dreams that we dream are really there to foretell us the future. And if they are: What could we do about it? Could we find an advantage by knowing the meanings of our dreams?
Perhaps we could.
Understanding dreams for ourselvesSo, here are a few of the questions that one has to ask oneself in order to understand dreams:
(1) Let us start looking at the dreams that we dream.
(2) Let us ask ourselves what sort of dreams are they.
(3) Let us ask ourselves why we do dream such dreams.
So, what sorts of dreams I generally dream?
Are my dreams happy dreams, or are they sad dreams?
Do I feel secure while I dream, or do I feel threatened?
Are there friendly people with me, or are they hostile?
Can I move freely in my dreams, or I have to struggle to move?
Am I alone in a large open space, or am I in a maze wanting to find my way out?
When a dreadful dream ends, does it end because I wake up from fear? Or does it end because I have somehow overcome the dangerous obstacles and the dream just finishes, and I wake up just because it is time to wake up.
So, we can keep asking ourselves many more questions like these: But in the end we will have only a confused idea about what our dreams could really mean.
But in this sort of dreams, one could also assume that the degree that the dreamer feels in the dreams; of happiness or sadness; of security or threat; of friendliness or hostility, and whatever else one can feel, could really be the way that one feels within oneself in real life. And there are times that the dreamer is aware of it, or becomes aware if he/she reflects about the dreams.
Therefore these dreams can be said to be of a psychological nature, because they deal about our thinking and what we feel within our own mind, whether we are aware of it or not makes no difference, because while we dream our mind reviews and tries to find an acceptable explanation about our feelings and anything else that seems to be our problem.
So, all these sorts of dreams suggest that while we are sleeping our mind is not completely resting: but it is reviewing our life and our past, so that it can adjust our thoughts in such a way that they would make sense to our own mind, in order to file them in its own way and be in peace with itself. .
But there are some dreams that cannot be explained as in the above explanation, and they don’t seem to belong neither to the body nor to the mind of the dreamer: But they seem to come from an outside force, which is capable to influence our minds while we are sleeping, perhaps our minds can really listen to messages from the cosmos when we are sleeping, through our own sixth sense; or our subconscious mind could really be tuning-in in a different dimension, since this is the only time when our mind is free and therefore capable of doing it, or can it be our ancestors’ souls that are trying to communicate something to us, so look for an answer here-under, Dreams from the other side.
Dreams from the other side
For example: Here I want to tell you one of my dreams, that I believe it’s going to show you exactly what we mean. I have dreamed this dream a very long time ago, which is before any other dreams that will follow in our writings. This dream is still kept within my mind because of its special message that it has conveyed to me, and also because it almost has proved to me that there is an Afterlife, and that sometimes one of the spirits of our ancestors can really come to us in our dreams, and give us some sort of messages to help us.
This dream of mine is a bit strange, because it seems to be a teaching dream from an ancient spirit, who wants to teach me how to wash dishes in a necessary and special way.
So when I dreamed this dream I was old enough, perhaps in my late forties: but in my dream I was a young lad about twelve, and there was with me this old and wise lady perhaps in her sixties, (This difference in age between me and the old lady would be there in the dream, only to show that I was a newcomer to the world, compared to the old lady that must have been ancient, and that had lived her life long before my time, as she seemed to me very wise.) we were at an ancient and still existing fountain in my native town, this fountain is called La Cavallina, which is a fountain that I have already written about in our writings somewhere in the town where I came from. In my dream, while we were at this fountain, I had with me half a dozen dishes and some cutlery that I had to wash, and then I had to take them back home, which would have been the house of my grandma in the old part of the town; the old lady that I was with was instructing me to wash the dishes only under the first spout of the fountain, which is the most upstream spout, and to keep the dishes and everything else only in the small bay under the first spout, because that was the only way to have the dishes hygienically clean. So I sure followed her instructions and washed the dishes how and where she said, but in the end somehow a few of my dishes ended up in the second bay of the fountain, and I was very worried, but the old lady said don’t worry: I protested to her and said; but you said to me, that to keep the dishes hygienically clean they must be kept only in the first bay, and now some of my dishes are in the second bay, and they have been contaminated; what can I do? And the old wise lady replayed to me again. Don’t worry just for this time, because when you wake up you’ll know why it is all right just for this time.
The dream ends there, and when I woke up I realized that it was only a dream: Therefore, if the dishes were contaminated it didn’t really matter, just because it was only a dream and it wasn’t real life. But the teaching of how to wash the dishes, in case there was an outbreak of infectious disease was to be learned from this dream.
I believe that the old lady in my dream is the spirit of one of my forbears, and she must have lived during an epidemic of infectious disease, where she had learned that to survive one has to wash dishes and other utensils properly under running water only. So in my dream she wanted to pass her knowledge to me.
I suppose that my dream above is enough for me to make me believe about the afterlife. And the dream makes me believe, that it is possible while we sleep to get in touch with our ancestors through the cosmos, or whatever there is that can get us in touch with the souls of our ancestors. But one has to keep in mind, that one has no power to make it happen, and it can and will only happen, if and when it happens. It is like coming across something that we have never seen or done before and we have no control over it, or perhaps we could say that it is like tuning in something new.
Dreaming and tuning in
Another example about our minds and dreams: We may dream of something, and when we wake up and start talking to a family member or a friend, they start taking about the same thing that we have dreamed before we start talking about it ourselves. Or perhaps we find that they have dreamed a dream very much like ours. Would it be just a coincidence? Or, is it possible that our minds are able to communicate our thoughts while we are asleep? Even if it is only in a very confuse way?
These happenings may suggest that, our minds may have a sixth sense about communication without words, but our minds have no control about these communications, and they happen only if they happen; perhaps when two minds by chance tune on the same wave length. But even this is still a chance that could become possible one day, that is that our minds would be able to communicate with each other, and perhaps one day in the far way future we will learn how to communicate properly.
This sixth sense that we seem to have, in theory could be able to tune in the cosmos, including the afterlife world which is part of it, therefore through this sixth sense it could become possible for passed-away people to give us coded messages in our dreams. I am saying this since lots of people seem to dream about their deceased relatives and friends.
Here I’d like to say something about what some dream could mean, and what one should be looking for, in one wants to understand one’s own dreams.
When we dream of passed away relatives of friends, are they males or females? Do we feel that they want to convey something to us? Do they seem concerned about us, or they seem normal? Is the dream easy or complex? And many other things we should ask ourselves.
Here I would like to say that most people believe that, to dream about a passed away man is a good omen, but a passed away woman is a warning, and the degree of the dream being easy or complex, is the degree that the dreamer may feel if anything happens similar to the dream.
It would be helpful to remember what sort of dreams one dreams, and the people that are in your dreams, whether they bring you happy tidings or warnings. And then keeping them in one’s mind which people bring happy tidings and which may bring warnings, whether they are alive or dead doesn’t make any difference.
During my life I have had lots of dreams of all shapes and forms, and within these dreams there is a very special dream, and I believe that it really is a very special dream for me.
So, I would like to tell you my dream, because I believe that all our dreams help our mind to restore its balance, and this is one of those dreams that covers just about every need that a person needs in a dream, in order to adjust all one’s own needs of the body, mind and soul. And it is perhaps for this reason that I put so much importance in this dream. And there is also another reason why this dream seems very important to me, it is because it has somehow changed my way of thinking, and perhaps my way of living.
Because in this dream I seem to have been mentally in touch with the cosmos, whether I have really been in touch with the cosmos or not it is not possible to prove, and it could turn out to be only all my mind work. But I like very much to believe that in my dream I got really in touch with the cosmos, and really I did reach the highest active life-force of the universe.
Now I would have liked to talk about the most important dream of my life here, because it is one of the places that make sense, but I have already published it somewhere else, and therefore I am not allowed to repeat it here, so if you would like to read it, you could read it in our blog called, Man needs God at this web address http://manneedsgod.blogspot.com I hope it works for you.
Anyhow, there would be more spiritual dreams that we could talk about, in our next chapter, Cosmic spiritual dreams. See you there?
