Transitions

Many times, our dreams will revert us back to our childhood days. This traveling back in time allows our subconscious mind to remember the innocence and purity within our childlike hearts. (Matthew 18:2 Jesus says that we must “become as little children” in order to enter the kingdom of God.) These dreams may be pointing out the “old us”, or how we used to be. It may also represent repressed memories of a lingering situation in our waking lives. It may also symbolize something that is missing in our lives, fear, being overwhelmed, reminiscing how easy things used to be, childhood friends, choices we made, etc. girl-2771936_19202178885105583178875.jpg

[DREAM #1]

Last nights dream is a perfect example. I found myself walking down the halls of my old elementary/middle school (I went to private school from 2nd to 12th grade). I was wearing the old school uniform, which consisted of a plaid navy blue skirt, white blouse, and brown penny loafers. I wasn’t doing much other than walking through the hallways and observing all the students passing by. I soon woke up around 2:45 a.m. and could not go back to sleep until 4:00 a.m.

[DREAM #2]

I walked into this enormous, luxurious building. It was filled with stores, restaurants, and professional businesses of all kinds. As I walked around, I began to recognize alot of the people who were present. There were family, friends, old friends from school, neighbors, old colleagues, etc. I remember running into an old colleague of my moms and asking her if there were any positions currently open where she is working. She said no, but that not to worry that she used to hold up signs for a living (I found that reply so confusing!). As I continued to walk, I find myself in the food court area, where there was a large group of old friends that were gathered there. As I approached them and said our “hello’s”, I noticed that all of their eyelashes were growing very long. I thought, “Wow, how amazing are their lashes?” But wait, they kept on growing! I soon walked away and continued on my tour of the building. I am now entering a ballroom with my husband, and we are apparently attending a Gala. Before we enter, there was someone at the entrance collecting tickets for the event. Soon thereafter, my dream had ended.

[DREAM INTERPRETATION]

SCHOOL UNIFORM: This represents an identification with an authority figure. Most of the time, it symbolizes order. This represents good opportunities for your life and current activities.

SCHOOL: This represents a childhood memory that needs to be addressed.

HALLWAY: Symbolizes a new beginning, or transition in the way you think, or in the circumstances of you life. You are waiting for something to happen after you’ve already completed a phase. 

LONG EYELASHES: You are trying to express yourself as best as you can. Your feelings are clear and precise and they need to come out. This also represents good fortune. Something is momentarily blocking your path/goal, and you are unable to move forward like you would like. 

GALA: You’ll find yourself in very beneficial circles in the future. You’re close to accomplishing your goals and will soon find happiness and content.

Alerts and Messages

Not only do dreams elaborate on current situations in our lives, but they also heed warnings or deliver messages that one must steer their attention to. For example, last nights dream wasn’t as vivid as usual, however, you always try to remember the most about dreams that you can, in order to come up with the interpretation. It doesn’t take more than a few symbols or images, as everything carries some kind of symbolism.

In last nights dream, I remember being in my garage and seeing my dad fixing my car. I asked, ” Hey dad, what’s wrong with my car? What are you doing to it?” He replied, “Very strange, but last night, someone came and carved out Fish Gills in your car.” And so I proceeded to inspect the rest of the car thinking, “Who in the world would carve fish gills in my car?

Soon, my dream shifted into another, what I like to call “Dream Movie.” I found myself folding laundry, but a light blue bed sheet to be exact. I was making sure that it was folded very neatly and symmetrical. After that my dream was over.

Dream Meaning

Gills: This represents being able to “swim” or speedily get away from harm. These Gills give you the ability to adapt to certain circumstances more easily. This also has to do with one’s health condition, or that of a family members. There may be a lingering disease that is advised to take care of early on. Gills also represent your readiness to confront your true feelings and to fully submerge yourself in emotions.

Car

Represents how you are moving through life. It is freedom and the ability to control and direct the path of your own life.

 

Folding bed sheets

This represents an inheritance of some kind. Either from a close relative (even one you may not have seen in many years), or a close friend. It won’t be alot of money, but certainly beneficial to you. This also represents a positive period for finances or anything related to investments and money. This may be a good time to think about investing.

Light blue sheets

This color represents the sky and the ocean. It also represents freedom, intuition, imagination, space, faith, heaven, and stability. It symbolizes power and protection, courage and strength. In the bible, light blue carries the meaning of Celestial Love and Truth. It also represents the Archangel Michael and clear communication.

The Great Unknown

Into the path of the great unknown,

Lies the answers we’ve been seeking on this road all alone.

What sense of fear and uncertainty has overcome you?

It’s not knowing who we are, what lies ahead, or this life we think is true.

Down this path of seemingly bottomless roads,

Is a light so bright and is calling me home.

There’s a comfort I feel in my heart, in my soul.

Though I can’t see the end of that road or my goal.

The illusions depicted, pictures painted so bright,

But these aren’t the Lord’s, no they’re not from his Light.

Be wise and observant though you can’t see this road,

God never intended for you to carry this load.

Through the Great Unknown we will one day see,

That this road we once traveled,

Gives a new meaning to Free!

God and Dreams

Aside from the scientific knowledge that many have studied on dreams and how they occur as a process in our brains, dreams are a very special gift. This gift gives us insight into a whole other world. A world that we could only enter when reaching a state of peace and relaxation, such as sleep or meditation. According to http://www.jw.org, in Bible times, God occasionally used dreams. But these were not everyday vague, illogical dreams. Dreams from God were vivid and coherent, and they had a definite message. Some of these messages gave clear and concise scenarios of future events, while others necessitated to be put together, just as you would a puzzle. fantasy-2861107_1920 (1)

In my prior articles, I’ve reiterated the need for stillness and a quiet mind in order to hear or experience any messages more clearly. In the bible, God spoke of his intentions to speak to his children in the manner of dreams {Acts 2:17-18}

17 “ ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 
18 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 
Now, I’m not saying that every dream comes from God. There are a combination of factors here. Dreaming was created as a form of healing our own bodies, mind spirit, and soul. It was also created as a form of communication between spiritual realms. Just as there is good and evil, so is the same for dreams. There are many types of dreams such as: Healing Dreams, Problem-Solving Dreams, Belief Dreams, Physiological dreams, Pre-cognitive Dreams, Lucid dreams, and Nightmares.

dreamcatcher-1030769_1920When someone is dreaming, they are at a much more focused level than when they are awake. They cause us to either wake up or react. Dreams take us beyond what we already know and opens our eyes to the mystery of other possibilities. I have noticed how people have begun to wake up (by waking up, I mean opening ones eyes to see beyond what’s there. To see beyond the curtain of deceit. To feel a tug, or yearning, for some inexplicable fulfillment that one is missing in their lives, the need to know what their true purpose in life is). They question their dreams more; where in the past, they would’ve simply brushed it off as simply some crazy, evening rendezvous. You see, these aren’t coincidences that happen on a global level. This is our connection to our highest source (God), pulling us towards him. While our world is changing, so are our minds, ideologies, and hearts.

As you continue to pay more attention to your dreams, you will begin to understand them more. They will become more like stories, rather than random situations our brain has put together. Now, much like our relationship with God is a commitment, so are our dreams. In order to be able to receive more information through dream state, one must show their commitment and open heart. Keep a dream log by your nightstand in order to remember your dreams. Before falling asleep, set an intention, or ask a question of guidance. Setting intentions shows your desire to connect. When you wake up in the morning, make sure to write down in present time your dream, how it made you feel, and details of what you remember. These small steps will help us remember our dreams and keep them coming on a more routine basis.

In the days we are living filled with lack of faith, ruthlessness, and cold hearts, we are called to be lights in the darkness. In focusing in on our dreams, we shift our minds into another world. This actually calms our minds and helps us navigate a little smoother in our day-to-day lives. Dreams are the forbidden world of unsolved mysteries. They are the gateway into our soul, our desires, and our connection to ourselves and God. God used dreams in the bible to warn people of their sins and wrong doings, to direct their paths and offer signs of hope. Have you tried to decipher your dreams as of late? What have they said about you, about a current situation, about life? Try journaling your dreams for one week. If all you’d like to do is write them down, send them to my inbox and I will be happy to unlock the messages behind them. You’ll be very surprised to see what comes through, I guarantee it!

There’s a storm coming

A series of events are converging together,

Can you feel it? It’s building and will change us forever.

Secluded in our worlds we’ve grown fond of possessions,

Paid no mind to self-worth, family values,  life’s lessons.

Since eons ago, only one thing stands strong,

The need for power and control over all.

We’ve witnessed these changes right in front of our eyes,

Yet we stand back in awe as if it’s a surprise.

chaos-1820492_1920

You ask, “Who caused this and how can this be?”

“So much destruction around us, Lord please hear my plea!”

“My child I have warned you that this would occur.

The world has forgotten me. My voice is not heard!”

“Inescapable events will begin to unfold,

My heart breaks for my children, their hearts have grown cold.”

But through transformation comes a new world, new hearts,

The world we once lived in, will forever depart.

The ways of the wicked will not reappear,

It’s over and done with, there is no more fear.

A time to Trust

fantasy-2515940__340

Looking out at the beautiful chaos that began to unfold,

Was the sea, calm and tranquil, with stories untold.

Deep in the seemingly bottomless chasm, lies the world of the unknown.

This world we seem to know so well, yet have disturbingly outgrown.

Tempestuous winds begin to pick up,

So quickly it’s changing, we’re all waking up.

Such brilliant colors begin to appear,

They have voices and feelings, a vibrational frontier.

The past, present, and future hold true,

We’re all individuals, light souls passing through.

And in the midst of chaos we are reminded with Love,

To pray and to trust HIM, our God Almighty above.

 

 

 

The “Time” Capsule

Anytime you begin meditation, it is recommended to request guidance and protection from God, your higher “Self”, and your angels (Guardians). Always ask that they protect you from any harm or negative entities, that may want to disturb your space. When we place ourselves in this concentrated deep state, we become vulnerable to these sort of things.

*Envision yourself wrapped in a giant,  oval egg-shaped white light of protection*19bf3c70adc88bc3dcf2d097153a26c6.jpg

Vision:

I was a spectator at this time. It looked like I was in the desert somewhere around the time of Jesus or so. There was this young boy, about 9 or 11 years of age. He looked poor and was dressed in old beat up, white rags. I was looking at the boy trying to take out what looked like a Time Capsule, from the ground. He was struggling with it and i woke up before I saw him retrieve it.

equipment-2047314_1920

Analysis:

Boy:

This speaks of different changes in one’s life, either good or bad. However, it is nothing to be alarmed about as you will remain calm and find a reasonable conclusion for this situation. This may also represent “Good News” coming your way in the form of a surprise.

graphic-3346069_1280

Time Capsule, Cylinder, or Tube:

There will be peace and comfort after a long period of struggle. This also represents a desire to escape your present reality. You’d like to go back to the past, or fast forward to the future where your goals will be realized. You are dealing with things at the moment that are causing you stress or creating anxiety.

The Time Capsule also symbolizes the time of Nebuchadnezzar and Daniel in the bible (The King of Babylon)

*https://www.gotquestions.org/Nebuchadnezzars-dream.html

Ground/Dirt:

This represents finding out information about someone or something.

Pulling out Something from the ground:

This is a positive action. There’s a current situation that can be resolved or dealt with. You need to focus on the object you are actively pulling out. It also symbolizes a certain stage in spiritual development. You’re being pulled in a certain direction. You may not know where you’re going, but just trust the feeling. This may be a call to give or share information that has been relayed to you, in which others may need to hear.

What is your interpretation?

Standing Still

I feel like I’m floating, being carried by dreams,

my thoughts are beyond me, how can I cope with these things?

As the days move passed me, not a day goes by,

that I don’t wish I could stop and see clear through your eyes.

At times I could feel you, I can hear you from far.

Please Father forgive me, I’m drifting afar.

The noise in this life is too much for me.

I struggle and think, “Will I ever be free?”

Pondering back at my life, “What happened, what changed?”

“Who am I? Where am I? Do I look estranged?”

 

What am I to do, is it all up to me?

“My child I have told you, I’ll take care of thee.”

“Be quiet, be still and you’ll hear me again.

I’ve never left your side, not now and not then!”

“Please quiet your mind and trust in me.

One day this shall all make sense, it was intended to be.”

“In stillness there’s peace, how else can you hear?

My child I am with you, why do you fear?”

“Now close your eyes and feel my embrace,

my Love is eternal and you have been saved by Grace.”

“And when the time comes, you fall back once again,

just stand still and reach for me and I’ll give you my hand.”

The Blimp

Don’t you feel like if you’re walking around in circles sometimes? I mean, you have an image in your mind of what your goals are, but are you really headed that way? Does this path lead to anywhere, or am I just trying to convince myself that I’m on the right track? This runs through my mind countless times, as I’m quite sure it runs through yours. At times, one may even lose sight, or forget what their goals are, because you get so caught up in a vicious cycle.

My dream last night was short, but like I always say, “It doesn’t matter how short your dreams are, there is always a hidden message.”  

The Dream

My husband woke me up like he usually does when he goes to work. It was roughly 6 a.m. I woke up a bit confused, because he usually wakes me up to have breakfast with him and he was already dressed and ready to leave. I said, “What’s going on? Why are you already dressed?” He replied, “I have something to tell you, but I’m not quite sure if it’s real or not!” As he’s speaking to me, I happened to glance outside the bedroom window. The blinds were partially opened and I could see the Good Year Blimp in the air. I thought, “What an odd hour to be flying a blimp!” At this point, I had missed everything my husband was explaining to me, because I was so fixated on the blimp. Soon after, my husband woke me up to have breakfast.

Interpretation

News: You will be fortunate in any work affairs and have harmonious companion.

Uniform/Work attire: There is a sense of conformity. Do not settle and go along with the crowd, just to avoid confrontation. There is also a chance at a promotion that will bring you good fortune and a better position.

Blimp: Your plans are up in the air. Your passions are stronger than the plans you have set out before you. Blimps also represent the feeling of being out of balance. It also symbolizes adventure, creativity and courage during incredible facts. There will be some type of announcement of either an adventure, or something else exciting that will get your adrenaline running. You will demonstrate that you are not making a mistake by going to where you have gone recently.

Pondering Thoughts

Sometimes we’re on auto pilot and can lose track of where we are going. We can become almost numb and feel we are lacking somewhere in our self-worth. This dream doesn’t only let one know that they are on the right track, but also reminds us that we are worth much more than just a monotonous 9-5 work week, or a money-making machine. We are dreamers! We are filled with goals and aspirations; a longing for a better life. But for some reason, we’ve made this all seem so unattainable. Why shouldn’t we deserve what we work so hard for? What makes us feel unworthy of such a life? We do!!! WE tend to become conformed to the material things of this world that, to an extent, we’re slowly becoming prisoners, forgetting who WE are and what purpose WE truly serve. WE must not allow ourselves to be conformed, but rather *transformed*.

*Dr. Jordan Peterson is a professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto. He is a Clinical Psychologist and Public Speaker. This explanation he gives about dreams and if they have any relevant meaning is just amazing, I feel! I invite you to take a few minutes and listen in. *

An Escape

It is difficult to calm the mind sometimes from overthinking. From the moment we wake up until we go to bed, our minds are constantly going. Did I forget to return that email before I left work last night? I can’t forget to jot this important date on my calendar! Do the kids have any after school activities tomorrow? When will I get married, or meet my soul mate? These are all common conversations that travel through our minds everyday. For some of us, it may be a chronic problem that does not allow us to fully rest up.

The Dream

A few nights ago, I was laying in bed finishing up my daily meditation. Now, usually I fall asleep during my meditations and wake up in the middle of the night to remove my headphones. But this time, I was wide awake and couldn’t fall asleep fast enough. Finally, I did! I dreamt that everyone was climbing fast up the trees trying to get away from this flood that was occurring. This water came up fast, but not in a raging way. When the waters stopped, they seemed to calm down and all that had made it to the top of the trees were looking at eachother in relief and disbelief. The entire land was covered in water. The days passed and passed. We had no food or drinking water and had to make due with what we had. We had all decided to start collecting any debris from the water that would serve purpose.

There on top of the trees we made kitchens, a “nest” to sleep in, yes, just like the birds, we connected wooden planks to each of the tree branches that extended to the tree next to it, to form a connective bridge and so on. This was our life now! How quickly it changed, and how quickly we were forced to adapt. No time to think, just do. Soon after, my dream was over.

Analysis

Flood meaning:

This represents emotional issues and tensions. These are emotions that one may keep repressed and are causing you to feel overwhelmed. It symbolizes growing emotionally and releasing those feelings. But your worries over a specific situation will soon be swept away.

Water:

This represents purity and one’s unconscious itself.

Trees:

This is the symbolic meaning of Life.

Tree Branches:

These are one’s hidden abilities, desires, and aspirations. They symbolize good fortune, growth, and a new life. Branches may also represent the relationship one has between them and their family.

Living on top of the trees:

You want to find out how to protect you and your family from any dangers or misfortunes. Trying to escape the problems of the real world. You’re working hard to realize your hopes and goals. This could also mean, maximizing ones potential.

It’s important to take just a few minutes out of one’s day to quiet the mind and sit still. Even putting headphones on with no sounds, only to block the outside noises will help. Dreams like this one help us realize that we are giving too much time to material things and not enough time to ourselves. Or, it may also be telling us that worrying over “things” is a waste of time. Our lives can change in an instant! So worry about what you can change and don’t worry about what you can’t. Appreciate each and every moment and always give thanks for all that you have been blessed with.

Pancho’s Visit

Sometimes, loved ones will make a quick visitation in a dream without really giving you a clear message. It later becomes a sort of puzzle, in which you must try to put together. Sometimes, our dearly departed will reach out to us because of “unfinished business” or  circumstances that were left unresolved, looking for forgiveness, or even to give us insight as to a situation one may have to deal with in the future (near or far). When it comes to deceased family, these sort of dreams may leave us either filled with utmost joy, or melancholy and sad. Depending on the relationship with the dearly departed, will be your own interpretation.

Last night, I dreamt that I was at the store with my parents. My father asked me if it was okay that we paid my grandfather (we called him “Pancho”) a visit. Naturally I said yes , and so we got into the car and headed to his house. When we arrived, I was the first to arrive at the door. When I opened the door to his house, I walked into what looked like my parents kitchen. I found my grandfather facing me, leaning up against the counter. I said (In Spanish), “Hi abuelo! How are you?” I noticed he only smiled at me and didn’t reply. My dad for some reason, came to where my grandfather was, picked him up, and sat him on the counter like he was a child. They began conversing with my grandfather, but something wasn’t right. I noticed that my grandfather’s speech was slurred and his lip to the right was drooping, while his left eye was doing the same. I became very concerned and asked, “Abuelo, are you okay? Do you feel well? What’s wrong?” He replied, “Help me, I think I’m having a Stroke!” Nervous, I turned to my parents and asked them to call for help. I began to cry at the sight of my helpless grandfather. But then I thought, “Wait, how can grandpa be having a stroke if he’s already passed?” Soon after, my dream was over.

As you can see, dreams like these can leave one feeling sad almost for the entire day. It may even cause someone to relive those aching moments. But lets take a look at what message lies within this dream shall we? When it comes to me entering my grandfather’s house and then walking into my parents house, it resembles the last few months of my grandfather’s life in which my parents took care of him. A deceased grandparent may symbolize the feeling you are having of losing the support of someone you love. Now, this sense of support doesn’t necessarily have to be a person. You may be in need of guidance, protection, or comfort. Seeing your deceased grandfather may also represent the feeling of being permanent, getting into a new house or job and considering that situation, a long-term expectation. This may also symbolize you meeting your expectations in the very near future, or in a short time.

Having a Stroke in a dream, or seeing someone have a Stroke means that there is a certain situation in your waking life in which you are having trouble functioning. This may also represent ones repressed fears. On the bright side, consider the term, “A stroke of good luck”. A stroke in a dream may also be a “health alarm”. What is your family’s health history? Are you under alot of stress? Maybe you need to change your eating habits, and they are advising you to do so, in order to prevent anything from happening. Wether our dreams with our departed loved ones are bitter or sweet, we should always thank them for their visit. They will always come in peace, love, and with your best interest at heart. And yes, I miss my grandfather very much!
