When we fall asleep we release tension, we relax and our mind slips away. We slide into another state, that of dreams and often of a very personal message to ourselves. When we look at dreams, especially recurring ones, we can see a theme. But what does it mean and how does it truly relate to you? To find this out it is important to remember that in the state of dream sleep you are not fully present, it is your subconscious that is at play. It is your subconscious then that is arising to give you a message. It could be relaying a truth of an underlying problem and giving you a diagnosis.
It is important to see your dreams clearly for what they are, clues. When you have a dream over and over again, replaying the same emotion and theme, this is very important to look at. Your subconscious is trying to work at something, trying to solve an issue for you. In your sleep this can be very distressing. When we awake we are not fully rested but rather unsettled. Often times these dreams will not abate without further counsel from within. By allowing yourself to fully look at the dream, align it with yourself, you may find the correlating issue. It may help end the dream or give you a new one. The bases of dreams, replayed ones, are an event of your subconscious. It is asking you to deal with an issue, so that it too can rest.
Dreams that seem hard to understand, that are jumbled and inaccessible, yet are reoccurring, are very important. It is just that your subconscious hasn’t quite figured out how to play it.
The important part is not so much the message but the correlation with yourself. For it is your dream and therefore your issue to be seen. It may be hard to attach the idea to yourself, for it may not be apparent. It might be so buried only your subconscious knows about it and therefore has taken it on as its’ duty to solve. You can help it out, find out what it means and get better sleep. How does it fit you, why are you having this dream? Try to remember and feel the dream. Overlay it on your life, does it fit anywhere? Does it recall a time or place from your memory? Is it more emotion, is it related to how you feel? These are all symbols played out so that you can see what your subconscious is working at. You can help yourself find the answers, just find the clues and connect them to your life.
