See with personal growth it’s easy to think that it’s up to us to do it all. To overcome all odds on our own. But there is a subtle energy that exists, some call it God, the universe, life force, whatever you call it, but it exists to guide us and teach us how to find an easier way.
One of the ways that we can begin to receive help (if we ask) is through our dreams… and if you learn how to interpret their subtle messages you will be blown away by how the this universal life force is really there to help us find our way.
Recently after the ending of a relationship and what I would call a turning point in my life, I was left feeling lost, and like there was no hope. After asking for guidance before bed, I was given a dream to help reassure me of my path.
In the dream I was with my father, he and I were driving down through a suburb of large mansions that rested on the coast somewhere unspecific. We were on our way to go see the mansion of family friends; a married couple who are extremely loving individuals and who have worked hard to be where they are in their lives.
Deciphering The Dream:
Deciphering this dream wasn’t very difficult, but like most dreams the message surprised me and made me laugh when I realized it’s accuracy. I broke dream down step by step using a technique that I teach, which can be found here:
In this case my father represented an aspect of myself that is true and good. A part of myself that is striving towards consciousness.
The Coast or Body of Water:
As you develop your ability to understand dreams you will quickly understand metaphors that are there for you. For me the metaphor of an ocean or great body of water is equivalent to the highest level of conscious awareness. It’s a symbol for me essentially of God.
Often in dream analysis moving in to a new home represents a change in consciousness, but of course always go with what is true for you. For me in this case the Mansion represented moving towards a larger state of consciousness in myself.
The couple or close friends in the dream who’s mansion it was, I took to be representatives of a relationship that I am getting ready for.
Putting it all together
To put it all together the dream for me meant that my higher self, or part of me which desires growth and is striving towards consciousness “The Ocean” has earned and is moving into a larger state of consciousness “The Mansion”. In moving into this Mansion I am coming closer to a relationship which is an example of how a true partnership can be, something that I’m being prepared for.
As I’ve said before, all dream experiences and interpretations are personal. For me this dream was a precious confirmation that life is working with me towards becoming more conscious and achieving my dreams.
Till next time,
