Even if you had the dream years, and years ago – can you still recall it to this day?
There’s something so thrilling about having a dream and waking up and remembering it – isn’t there?
I’ve been recording my dreams since I was a teenager. Over the years I’ve trained myself to remember them because I’ve found they guide me by answering questions or addressing problems in my life. I’ve now gotten to the point where I can just tell myself that I want a dream to help me solve a particular problem in my life and I get it. But, even when I don’t ask for a particular dream answers come through even when they’re unsolicited.
One particularly vivid dream I had a few years ago comes to mind:
I was in the car with a client going to business meeting when I spotted my aunt – who’d passed away – on the sidewalk chatting with some people. I was elated to see her. I was going to stop to get out and visit with her, but decided against it due to having the client with me. My aunt saw me and excitedly began waiving me over, but I gave her a signal to wait for me and I’d be back. I needed to get to this business meeting. When I returned later my aunt was gone. My heart sank when I realized what a special opportunity I’d missed to spend time with my aunt.
Intuitive guidance comes through our dreams
I hadn’t asked for this dream but it made me see that my life was out of balance. I had been putting my job ahead of everything, and my passions and personal life suffered for it.
I took the message from my intuition in that dream very seriously. I understood that if I didn’t do what I really wanted in my life – the opportunities might not always be there. I decided I had to make time to write and stick to it – no matter what. I didn’t want to look back someday and say why didn’t I follow my heart?
The easiest way to begin honing your intuition is to start paying attention to your dreams
If you can’t remember the last time you had a dream then you’re missing out on an important way that intuition communicates with us. Everybody dreams, even those of who say they can’t remember them, and those of us who say they aren’t intuitive. Get into the habit of remembering your dreams and you’ll get the benefit of intuitive guidance.
Here’s a fool-proof way to remember your dreams:
1. Make sure you keep a pad and pen on your bedside table.
2. Set the alarm for a half hour earlier to have time to mull over your dream.
3. Create the intention to have a dream and recall it. Spend a few minutes before drifting off telling yourself that you want to have a dream, that you will have a dream and that you will readily and easily remember it. (you might have to do this over and over before it takes – but stick with it – it will work eventually)
4. DO NOT OPEN YOUR EYES right away when you wake up. After turning off the alarm clock – DO NOT MOVE. Just lay still to allow the dream to stay on the surface of your mind.
5. Do not allow pets to distract you when you wake, or better yet keep them out of the bedroom.
6. WRITE DOWN the pertinent details before they sink back down to the depths of the subconscious. I cannot tell you how many times I thought I’d remember a dream and didn’t write it down, only to find it had vanished moments later.
7. Do meditate directly after getting out of bed. If you’re not a meditator don’t turn on the radio or TV or talk right after waking either. Silence allows further dream fragments to bubble up to the surface of awareness.
8. Now that you’ve recalled the dream try to see how it applies to your life.
