Dreaming is an incredibly powerful way to directly connect with spiritual guidance. During dreamtime your mind is still and quiet, and you have plenty of focused time to directly connect with the Divine.
Dreams can be playful, profound, spiritual, prophetic, uplifting, exciting, weird, disturbing, or even scary… But all dreams have a purpose and hold significant meaning and clues about life here in the physical. After all, the average human being sleeps about 7 hours a night, which when added together equates to 1/3 of a lifetime!? With this much time invested, there is of course meaning and insight revealed within our dreams.
Through learning to understand the symbolic language of dreams, there is a huge opportunity for you to experience spiritual growth and advancement. Even without understanding dreams can be incredibly powerful, healing, and can help to carry you forward…
Dreams are most commonly about you and your personal life experience (Only about 10% of the time they may be about others).
Dreams offer an opportunity for you to check in with Divine guidance, and to see where you are, where you have been, and where you are going.
To start tuning into the meaning of your dreams, you first need to start remembering them! (If you're not already…) Committing to remember your dreams, and setting the intention to do so is the best place to begin. One way to super charge this intention is to keep a specific dream journal. Keep this journal by your bedside, and every morning (or if you wake up in the middle of the night) start recording whatever you can remember from your dream time.
Crystals like kyanite, herkimer diamond, amethyst or a double terminated crystal point can also help you with dream recall, just keep them by your bedside or under your pillow for best results.
If you're wanting to remember your dreams but it's just not happening, keep in mind that substances like alcohol or marijuana can definitely block you from remembering your dreams… Practice going to bed clear and sober, and you may even want to try sleeping next to a dream inducing herb like mugwort or damiana for an extra boost.

Once you start remembering your dreams, you can begin to decipher their spiritual meaning. You can absolutely look into one of the many dream dictionaries available to get an idea of the general meanings behind common dream symbols. Keep in mind however that dreaming is an incredibly personal process, and the true meaning and guidance from your dreams can only be found within.

How do you feel about the dream you had? What emotions are evoked during your dream, or when you remember your dream upon awakening? What is currently happening in your life around the time of your dream?
The answers to these questions along with the intuitive nudges you receive in response to the symbols in your dreams are huge factors helping you to understand the spiritual guidance and meaning present therein.
Are you having scary dreams and nightmares? Dreams with the theme of fear can be valuable in revealing areas in which you are still attached to fear in your life, perhaps even paralyzed by it. These dreams often come about to help you let go of fear, in your dreams, and in your waking reality.
Dreams offer the opportunity to safely release the past, to let go of attachments, to process fears, release limiting beliefs and thoughts, and to see where fear has crept into your experience.
Did you watch a scary movie and then have a nightmare? Remember that dreams often reflect your present reality, which is why it is so important to take control of the information you are infusing your consciousness with (via literature, TV, media, movies and more).
For “lightworkers” nightmares can sometimes be triggered by negative entities, to throw you off your path… By responding with love and awareness to any negativity, real or perceived, you can quickly make it through any of these sorts of negative greetings *sometimes called a psychic attack.
If you're having nightmares, ask your angels to surround you with love and light when you sleep at night and ask them to only allow positive vibrations and symbols to appear in your dream state. Ask the Divine and the angels to release any fear-based dreams or issues into the light, and to surround and protect you completely with Divine love.
Warning dreams are a bit different. They can also be a bit scary, but are intended to draw your attention to a potential pitfall, or approaching challenge in your reality, so you can reverse, or improve upon the situation. Warning dreams may also show you something you need to let go of before you are adversely affected by it. Just pay attention, keep a dream journal, listen to your heart, and over time and with practice the language of your dreams will become more and more clear.
Dreaming has been a huge part of my life and spiritual path, and I continue to receive insight, guidance, and glimpses into the past, present, and future through my dreams… Which I have learned to cherish, appreciate, and enjoy.
Dreams are a wonderful opportunity to increase your connection with the angelic realm and to receive guidance and healing. Connecting with your angels in dreams is a great way to gain a new perspective on a present challenge, to tap into creative insight, or to receive wisdom and understanding without being influenced by the ego mind (which during dream time is fast asleep).
With practice, and by consistently intending to remember your dreams and to receive spiritual guidance during your dream time, you may receive psychic dreams, spiritual insight, and even glimpses into parallel experiences or future possibilities.
Dreams can often bring pertinent guidance about all matters of life; including health, employment, spiritual growth, challenges and lessons, blockages, opportunities, relationships, and more!
Dreamtime is incredibly productive in terms of spiritual learning and growth. I often have recurring dreams of visiting classrooms and schools and while I don't always remember all the vivid details (though sometimes I do) I know that I am always learning and growing so much while I am fast asleep, because this is my intention. How cool is that?
Before you go bed tonight, take a moment to quiet your mind, and invite your angels, and the Divine into your dreamspace.
“I ask to be surrounded with Divine White Light, and with the highest, best, most loving possible angels who can most serve me now.
Please connect with me through my dreams tonight, and bring me healing, guidance, knowledge, and insight which will most serve.
Help me to remember my dreams upon waking up, and to realize and understand the spiritual guidance and meaning therein…
I ask this for the highest and greatest good of all, thank you, and so it is.”
Setting this sort of intention will help your dreams to be positive, vivid, and filled with spiritual guidance and insight.
Some of my most magical spiritual experiences and lessons have been revealed through dreams.
With practice and awareness, you can even become a lucid dreamer, in which you are experiencing incredibly vivid and magic dreams while remaining aware that you are dreaming, and able to alter the course of the dream as an active participant. Lucid dreams are so real, magical, and healing.
Set the intention to remember your dreams, and in the morning when you wake up, start asking yourself… “What did I dream?”
You may not at first remember the specifics, but with persistence, you will begin to feel and become aware of your valuable dreamtime work.
Spiritual dreams bring clearing, and can help you break through your blocks at a rapid pace so you can advance forward on your authentic path, towards accomplishing your soul's mission and purpose.
What is this purpose? In a nutshell, it is to serve, to love, to live, to witness, to shine, and to make a difference…
Call your angels into your dreams, and they will be happy to help you with all of this… and more!
With love and gratitude,
