Dreams under the bed?

As part of my work, I regularly attend events which are aimed at clients interested in preserving and enhancing their Mind, Body and Spirit.  Of course, dreams fit very naturally in to this area because they can help maximize your potential in all three.

A while ago, I met a lady at one of these events who told me that under no circumstances would she ever want to remember her dreams.  I asked her why, and she told me that the content of her dreams was always too graphic and, if she was honest, she feared their meaning.  As a result, she had taught herself never to remember them.

I asked if we could explore this for a moment and she agreed. 

I emphasized the value of dream analysis by asking her to first consider that – just like any part of the human body – dreams serve a purpose; we wouldn’t have them otherwise.  Anyone I have ever explored their dreams with, has always been able to find some hidden message which can point towards an area of their life they can improve.  Even the most graphic or violent of dreams can identify a positive message, like “It’s time to manage your stress,” or “that event is still raw for you – let’s work it out.”

Another key thing to consider is what might happen if you don’t explore the meaning of your dreams.  Many of my clients will be frustrated by their recurring dreams, which continue to re-occur because they haven’t taken the time to understand the message contained within. 

I also asked the lady I was speaking with to keep in mind that if her dreams were trying to help her, and she was refusing this help, did this mean she was pushing something underneath the surface?  Like any situation where you turn help away, eventually you may pay the price.  If you have experienced a traumatic event which your dreams are trying to help you process but you ignore, eventually this can find other ways of manifesting, like ill health.

She felt this was a good point and took my details.

Remember, your dreams are always trying to help you, just like a friend who has your best interests at heart.  If you ignore them, they will stop bothering you but remember you could be missing out on opportunities to change your life for the better.
