Last week, I mentioned that many times psychic premonitions or messages will begin in a dream state. While the body is at rest, the commotion that surrounds us during our waking hours slips away, leaving us more open to receiving psychic messages. Many times they come in the form of dreams.
Black Swamp Mysteries series, but the dreams that Detective Ryan O'Clery experiences in The Tempest Murders, which I'm happy to say has spun off a second series.
Some people dream things that have really happened or are about to happen.
My mother dreamed that her favorite nephew walked into a room filled with family members who had previously died. As he entered the room, each of the family got up to greet him. They talked, they hugged, and they welcomed him literally with open arms. My mother was also in the room but everyone ignored her, as if she wasn't even there.
The next morning, she was very disturbed by the dream because she didn't understand why family members she'd loved and they'd loved her, had completely ignored her...
Until she received the call that during that night, her favorite nephew, the one in the dream, had died. He'd been killed in an accident, which was very sudden - he'd been young and in the best of health.
She realized then that the reason the family members had greeted him was because he truly was passing over to the other side. The reason they had ignored her is they could not see her since she was still physically on this side. It wasn't her time to be greeted.
Other people dream in code.
Sometimes, our dreams are not to be taken literally, but they are a form of code. For example, many of us have dreamed that we were in a building of some sort. Buildings represent parts of the soul or parts of our lives. Dreaming of a kitchen, for example, means there is something going on in the domestic or home part of our lives. Dreaming of a hotel means a situation in our lives is temporary.
When you begin trying to remember your dreams and make a conscious effort to decipher them, it sends a signal to the universe and to your own brain that you want to tap into something deeper; something that can't be seen with the naked eye. If you continue to write down your dreams, they will become stronger and you'll remember more of them.
Not all psychics or psychic spies begin with dreaming, but many of them do. The more psychic work they do during waking hours, the more apt they are to have lucid dreaming.
So what do you do when you have a disjointed or seemingly nonsensical dream?
Write down as much as you remember, and then go to a trusted source to see what each component means. One that I particularly like (and use when writing about dream sequences in my books) is Dream Moods (http://dreammoods.com/). Not only does it tell what something represents, but often what it's doing or the context it shows up in means something as well. This site delves more into that.
But how does this affect psychic spy training?
Find out next week when I talk about the basic testing of potential psychics, and how the charlatans can be weeded out of the truly gifted - and how science meets the psychic.
