The experts say we all dream. But, we don’t all remember our dreams. Some of us dream in black and white and others dream in magnificent color. We are most likely to remember the dreams we have just before we wake, whether this be in the middle of the night or at the break of day. It is the same with me. I remember the dreams just before I stir awake.
I first began to have dreams in my early twenties that seemed to have messages embedded in them from a source I call divine or God. The messages interrupted my dream. They were powerful, direct, and clear. They would be about a person I knew well, usually a family member. I wouldn’t always be told anything specific of events to unfold, but I always knew who the message was about. The first time this happened was when I was pregnant with my first child. I had a dream that I was having a daughter because my mother needed to have a granddaughter before she died. She already had a grandson and so I knew I was going to have a daughter. My daughter was six weeks old when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She died after a courageous battle 15 month later. God prepared me for what was to come.
After my mother died, the dreams came fast and furious with my mother delivering the messages. It took me awhile to figure it out. I would have a dream about a person and then about six weeks later something of importance would happen to that person and I would remember the dream. After this happen several times, I began to link the dreams to the events. This was not easy to accept. I was not at all sure that having knowledge of events before they happened was a good thing. In fact, I have spent a good part of my life fighting against it.
All of my immediate family members have now crossed to the spiritual world and they are the ones who deliver the divine messages that interrupt my dreams. When they show up in my dreams, I pay close attention. I like to think of their time with me in the dream state as little visits with a message. It is always good to hear from them.
As far as interpretation of the messages, God has been very direct with me. If I dream about a person, it means I am to get in touch with them – something significant is on their horizon. Often it is not good news, it is not my place to tell them that. It is my task to check in and gently see what is going on in their life and if I can somehow help them. Sometimes it is good news and then I share the information. Or, it may simply be that I need to reach out to a friend I haven’t made a connection with in a while.
How often to do you dream? Do you have dreams that later come true? I challenge you to keep a dream journal and pay attention, you may be receiving messages too.
