The dream world is not always pleasant. Who has not had a nightmare? This is a kind of dream that we would rather not have! And yet nightmares are also messengers that can help us understand our fears and much more …
According to Jeremy Taylor, author of the excellent book “Where people fly and water runs Uphill”, nightmares are a way for the unconscious to make the dreamer understand the importance of the message he is trying to send. The nightmare impresses a lot
more than an ordinary dream, we do not forget it. In this sense the nightmare is beneficial, and it must be paid close attention.
Certain dreams can highlight our feelings of inferiority, the lack of self-confidence in a situation. They can also express the anxiety that we live in reality, or the dream makes us realize our fear of having to face certain problems. All of this translates into dreams where we go through assaults, leaks, disproportionate fighting and other unpleasant events.
Bad dreams are not inherently negative, on the contrary. According to dream interpretation expert Medium Christina, such dreams can announce a passage, a transition, a modification of our self. So do not consider dreams of death as a bad omen, death symbolizes change and rebirth. Any change is difficult to accept and to live, but after the fact we realize that it brings a great wealth in our life.
Pay special attention to recurring dreams, that is to say, dreams that come back often.
They have a particularly important message to transmit to us and if we do not take the trouble to understand them they will come back to haunt our nights again and again … The recurring dream is generally an effort to compensate for a particular defect in the attitude of the dreamer with regard to life. Or it can be traced back to a trauma that marked the individual. It is also possible that such a dream is a warning, a warning or a preparation that anticipates an important event to come.
There comes a time when we have to face our fear, and for that we can use the lucid dream technique. It is a method where before falling asleep we program ourselves: the minute the recurring nightmare begins, or when the character who terrifies us appears, we will become aware that we are dreaming and that we can face the situation without danger.
It will then be a question of going out of its terror and of confronting fear either by speaking with it or by chasing it, or even by killing it. By doing this we will become aware of the roots of this fear and we will eliminate it definitively. This approach is effective for both adults and children. For children we can also offer a talisman object to slip under the pillow and which will protect them.
Dreams that announce an event very clearly and precisely are much rarer than you might think, but this can happen in some people.
There are dreams which resemble premonitory dreams, but which are only the projection of fears or unconscious expectations; and there are also real premonitory dreams, which are made by people who have a particular sensitivity that allows them to access what we could call the universal fabric.
In the non-physical world, the past and the future do not exist, just as there are no boundaries between people. Time and space do not exist. Everything takes place simultaneously. In a dream state (or clairvoyance, trance …) we can therefore have access to a scene from a possible future. Or we are given information to prepare us for an important but difficult event in our life.
Some people also experience very strong emotions in dreams experienced by victims of wars, disasters or murders. They learn about the event in the news after the fact and think they had a premonitory dream, but they are rather telepathic dreams.
We must consider every dream in its symbolic aspect. True premonitory dreams are different from usual dreams, we keep a very precise memory of them, they are very real, and we feel very intense emotions. Keep in mind that dreams are there for us
help, not to scare us. So rather than worry when such a dream occurs, it is better to keep calm and imagine a different but positive scenario to defuse the fear. We have to understand how this dream seeks to help us, and sometimes it takes years before we understand the significance of a dream. So be patient!
Some dreams are prophetic, others are there to warn us, so that by changing certain behaviors or attitudes we will avoid unpleasant situations. It may even happen that these dreams save our lives, like that of a policeman who dreamed that he was inspecting a house he thought deserted and was attacked from behind with an axe. When this policeman found himself in the same house as that of his nightmare, the memory of this dream saved his life.
