Ancients believed spirits in nature brought dreams to the sleeper. Historically, religious leaders disguised the power of dreams to consolidate their own authority.
Psychologists stress dreams as expressions of our emotions. Scientists put the dreaming function in our brain. Spiritually, dreams are the language of the soul, the voice of the divine, the wisdom within. I envision dreams as the trim tab of a 21st century paradigm shift, the track to truth and to our true Self.
Dreams, “speaking” in images and symbols, are messages of the present, reaching backward and forward. We can trust their nightly wisdom and call on their sage advice for insight and guidance for individual benefits and for the greater good. Dreams can clear barriers to self-expression so we grow and flourish, moving beyond societal dictates and demands, becoming more spiritual beings, finding our true Self.
