From Elsa to Moana, fairytales sure have changed since I was a little girl, but there are some classics that you just can’t forget. Remember when Cinderella, sings, “a dream is a wish your heart makes…” well, Disney was onto something there. If you break down the anatomy of a dream, you will find out in less poetic terms, that yes, in fact, a dream is your heart’s truth being broadcast to your sleeping mind.
The heart is the truth to that which is you. It is in your heart that your spirit or soul lives. And it is in this heart that your life’s plan and journey are stored for you to access when you decide to awaken or open yourself to it. Although there are many different teachings and ways to get into your heart that don’t require you to go to sleep, I am definitely not an expert on them, so I will leave it to you to explore those methods. But what I can tell you with certainty is, sleeping is like “connect to the heart for dummies” 101! How easy is that?
By performing the simple act of going to sleep, you are putting your body and human mind in a state of consciousness where your spirit or soul can get through to you. You are open to other worlds, planes and mysteries. You don’t debate where you go or how you get there. Your dream world is open to anything and everything. And because you don’t necessarily question it, your spirit or soul might decide to use this time to communicate with you. So the simple act of going to sleep allows your spirit or soul to send you messages; seems too simple right?
Yes, going to sleep and receiving spiritual messages sounds easy, but there’s the act of remembering them that can get tricky. That’s why I always have a pen and paper right next to my bed. For some reason, when you get into your waking state, your physical brain kicks in and kicks out all those wonderful adventures your sleeping mind experienced. So if you want to take note of your heart’s messages, then you better write it down somewhere, and fast!
This morning for example, I woke up and remembered this amazing dream, but decided to push snooze and go back into the adventure. I successfully dove back into my dream, and then my alarm woke me up again; now late for my day, I decided to shower and told myself I would write down my dream when I got out. I don’t think I have to spell it out for you now… but by the time I got out of the shower, the dream was gone. I had fully woken up and washed off the remnants of sleep and with that action, lost one of the messages that I’ve come to hold so dear. The crazy thing is, I could still feel the energy of the dream all day. It was like it was on the tip of my tongue, but I just couldn’t connect with it.
So be smarter than me, and write down anything you remember from your dream, the minute you are conscious enough to do so. Even if it’s in the middle of the night, jot down a few words or symbols, and then go back to bed, you can always add to them later.
By keeping these records you are sure to at least retain the most important symbols of your dream and then you can string them together and decode them like we do here to find out what messages are actually being sent to you. It’s like a fun little mystery designed only for you and your spirit! You might even say it’s a guide to your spirit or soul’s purpose in the waking world.
So many of us are looking for answers in life that can be found with a good night’s sleep! You just have to realize they’re coming. And by sharing this little tidbit with you, maybe you can start manifesting the wishes of your own heart!
With that, I’m off to bed to find out what my soul wants me to know tonight! Sweet dreaming.
