Dreams

Once I had a dream – a dream that I was falling deeper and deeper into a chasm…then suddenly I would wake up; this was a recurring dream that I still have now and then. I think to myself that, what does it mean? What does it all mean?

And the other dreams…do they have meanings too? Many seers say that dreams have meaning – if you dream of animals, apparently you are concerned about your fellow human beings, or brothers and sisters – and nightmares might mean that you are having indigestion from last night’s supper!

Perhaps there is meaning in dreams – or perhaps it is your subconscious mind at work, bringing into your dreams the thoughts that are lurking beneath the surface of the mind, at the end of a busy and eventful day.

So, I might ask myself…what is the meaning of my dream of falling into a chasm? I remember the first time I dreamt it – I was only 6 or 7 years old – and at the end of it I woke up and found that I had actually fallen out of my bed! Obviously then, it had to do with the fact that reality was intervening in my dream. Is that not what every dream is? A bit of reality, a bit of what we hope for, what we want, but also fear of the things we dread.

It would then seem that dreams are things that we conjure up that might be somewhat based on an aspect of our lives that we are exploring in our sleep – be it to our liking or not. Whether dreams can predict the future or not we can explore in further detail later – suffice to say that in some bizarre manner we are the creator of our own dreams!
