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!

  1. Though my book talks a lot about dreams, it isn’t a subject I have willingly entered, I have to say. I usually forget my dreams, though last night’s is vivid in every detail. Unusual. I appreciate your insights.

    • I’ve spoken to alot of people who have said the same thing. They’re either having very strange dreams, or they’re simply remembering them to the T. Pay very close attention to those so vivid.

"As writers and dreamers, we may never fit in (what they call) normality. Who cares? You and me, fulfilling old legends, we stay awake in each other’s dreams. We live for ever and a day in each other’s stories. We share memories of things that never happened. You and me. That’s the level of faith given upon our entwined souls!"
