How to Interpret Your Dreams – Part Two

Dream InterpretationLast week, in “How to Interpret Your Dreams – Part One,” I talked about working on remembering your dreams and recording the ones you have. This week, I will share with you a method for deciphering the messages within your dreams.

Are you ready to interpret your dream? If so, grab a pen and paper. Look at the symbols and objects in your dream. Take it one section at a time. For instance, say you are driving a car down the highway. Without thinking about it too much, write down the first thing you think of when you think of a car…for me, I think of a mode of transportation or something that gets me from A to B. Highway = the open road, or road trip for me. For you, a car or the highway may mean something completely different. There is no right or wrong answer. Just remember to use the word association exercise and try not to think too much about your answer. Whatever you think of first is what that symbol or object means to you. Do that for all objects within your dream, as well as all actions. For instance, were you driving toward a particular destination or person? Away from somewhere, someone or something?  Joy riding? Were you being chased? All of these factors are important.

Once you have compiled all of your associated words, take an overview of them. You should see a theme emerging that correlates to a situation that is currently occurring in your life. For instance, with the car dream, I may have a strong desire to free myself from responsibilities and obligations in order to travel on a new path…to hit the open road and experience a feeling of being free and looking forward to new adventures.

Keep an open mind. You may not be able to see the theme right away. However, it will come to you. It is important not to stress about it. It may even come to you in the form of an epiphany later in the day. Remember, practice will help you to develop your dream interpretation skills.

On a side note, whenever you see your deceased loved ones in your dreams, it is really them. Dreams give them a chance to let you know that they are around you because your daytime defenses are down. When you encounter a deceased loved one in your dreams, feel free to say hello. Just know, though, that you might wake yourself up in the process because you are interrupting the natural dream cycle. I did that so many times when I saw my Dad in my dreams and was so disappointed when I accidentally woke myself up. As with anything else, practice makes perfect. Dreams are tricky; too much interruption in the message and you wake yourself up.

Most of all, I hope you enjoy your journey into the world of your dreams. The messages are there for you and you can interpret them with an open mind and practice.

Namaste!

How Spirit Communicates with Mediums

Heavenly CloudsMany people that I meet have questions about how I communicate with Spirit. Some of them are under the impression that it is just like a conversation or a video that tells me everything in a straightforward manner. This is not the case. Even though portions of the communication do come across that way, most of it is much more complex than that.

Spirit communicates with me through a series of images, feelings, physical indicators, thoughts, tastes, smells, outward signs, etc. I explain to the recipients of my Spirit Medium readings that the information that I receive is like an abstract puzzle that needs to be pieced together. The following is a very brief synopsis of how it all works for me.

The process of giving a reading involves a fascinating, high-speed blend of information that needs to be quickly recognized, decoded, and interpreted. To begin the process, I concentrate on opening up my mind, heart, body, spirit, and aura to the Light. This serves to heighten my receptivity to Spirit communication through the super activation of all of my senses and raises my energy level up to meet that of Spirit. The connection is then made with Spirit through the supreme source of love that flows throughout all beings.

As I flow through the reading, I focus on the task of accurately receiving, interpreting, and sharing the information transferred to me from Spirit. First and foremost, I need to determine who is coming through, their relationship to you, as well as the specific messages that Spirit wants to share with you. The ultimate purpose of Spirit coming through for you is to provide healing for you, whether that is in the form of reassurance that they are in Heaven or guidance about your life, etc.

Spirit uses symbols, imagery, sounds, etc. from my knowledge and memory bank (aka. “databank”). Since my databank of experiences is unique to me, symbols, etc. that come through for me may have an entirely different meaning for another Medium. With each Medium, Spirit knows what information to use within our unique databanks to get their information through.

It always amazes me how creative Spirit is when communicating with me. They often overlap symbols, thoughts, feelings, physical indicators, etc. to express their messages. Sometimes people expect Spirit to tell them extremely specific information such as a title to a song, but if that is a song that I have never heard, it may be very complicated and challenging for Spirit to send that information, as well as for me to receive and interpret it.

All in all, Spirit communication is a wonderful, yet complex process that requires a tremendous amount of energy to complete. I hope that this information helps you to better understand the process and to appreciate the effort it takes from both Spirit and Mediums to get those incredible, blessed messages through to you.

Namaste!
