Mayan Messages ~ DREAM SYMBOLS
MAYANMESSAGES DAY 35 MEN 9
There is much written about dreams and their significance that is true, yet there is more. The value of dreams cannot be overstated. Perhaps you have a problem to be solved and that night you dream of a wonderful solution. At other times, dreams are entangled masses of events or thoughts you had that day or in the recent past. Dreams, such as premonitions that come true can be very profound. Flying, being naked in public places and other such non-reality dreams often are symbolic and sometimes provide clues to intentions you set in your conscious state. These are the ones we will look at today.
These symbols are archetypes or representations of emotions, objects or events. Where many authors such as Carl Jung fall short is when they focus only on ancient or cultural archetypes. For example, one person may dream of roses. When they look up the symbolic meaning of roses in dream interpretation books, they are confused because that archetypal meaning does not apply to them. Their past experiences may override the archetypes of the culture they live in.
Look deeply at the archetypes in your dreams and what they mean to you, personally. For some, roses are symbolic of Mother Mary. Perhaps for you, the smell of roses reminds you of a loved one who grew beautiful roses and has now passed away. In your dreams, it is possible this loved one is trying to contact you. When your mind is relaxed during sleep, it is sometimes easier for those on the Other Side to make contact. Paying attention to your dreams and making notes of objects and events, especially when they seem out of place, can be beneficial for you to decode your dream symbols. For example, you find yourself in a train that is flying. The two archetypes are being in a train and flying. Keep a log of these archetypes and the emotions you felt during the dream. Emotions are the catalysts and many times the true meaning of the dream.
For example, you have a recurring dream that changes through time. Each time, the setting is similar. Sometimes you are at a party or various other group gatherings. Over a series of months, your dream evolves. The common denominator in the dream is that you wind up in a small circle and before long, the gossip begins. In the beginning, you may start the gossip. Other times you are an active member in keeping the gossip alive. Through time, you try to change the subject and get others out of gossip mode, yet they continue. Perhaps they criticize you for trying to change the subject. Maybe you don’t leave the crowd because you don’t want them to talk about you behind your back. Maybe you silently wish they would change the subject but stay in the group to avoid being criticized. Later, your dreams change and you try your best to either change the subject or convince the others that gossip is harmful and a waste of time. Eventually, they either follow your example or you make the choice to walk away.
In your waking time, you have been a gossip and wish to change this behavior. Then you begin to have recurrent dreams that offer you opportunities to express the clear intention you made, “I choose to speak only kind words.” These types of dreams are like dress rehearsals, offering you a safe way to practice the behavior you wish to change.
Once you master one step in changing the behavior, the dream changes and takes you to opportunities to master the next step. Can you see the progression in the dream example above? The dreams begin where you currently are in your life, an active gossiper. At some point, you make the conscious decision to stop gossiping. Your dreams reflect this decision as you begin to face your fears of criticism, being judged and not fitting in. If you practice these things in your awake time, you may then have dreams of confronting others, speaking your truth or walking away. Once you have mastered these new behaviors in your awake time, you are likely not to have these dreams anymore.
Perhaps in the future, you have a relapse and get involved in a gossip session. If you feel guilty about your behavior, you may have another dream. It is likely this dream will give you an experience that allows you to get past the guilt. Maybe you simply recognize that you fell back into an old pattern and vow to be more careful. Then it is likely you won’t have a gossip dream, because you have learned to solve the problem in your conscious time. Instead, you may have a dream of a celebratory nature as a result of mastering one aspect of your life, such as gossiping.
This is just one way that dreams can be helpful. Some dreams are just fun, they may reflect how you felt after having a day where everything flowed well. Some dreams are just plain strange and may reflect several issues your busy mind is working on. We invite you to share your dreams with us for assistance in interpreting and using them to solve yourproblems and lead you to a life of abundance, peace and joy.
