Dare to Dream
Some believe that when we dream about our loved ones, it’s their way of communicating with us. I am not here to convince anyone of this “theory” or “truth”. It depends on how you view it.
This exercise is to recall a dream that you have had about your mother and write it down in your journal. Once you have written it down, read the dream out loud and then spend some time interpreting the dream. What do you think the dream means? Was there a message for you in the dream? Did the dream make you feel sad or happy? Did the dream generate a new awareness?
May I share: I’ve had a few dreams about mum since she died. I’ve had dreams that make me feel really happy and other dreams that have really upset me and triggered so much sadness.
I try not to judge my dreams, but what I do, is look for the message in the dream. I spend time looking at my life in the here and now and wonder if there is a clear message that can help me heal an aspect of my life.
You may want to keep a separate dream journal. You can note all the dreams you have had about your mother and any other dreams. (I’ve kept a dream journal since 2005).
It is suggested that our dreams are relevant to our here and now and that they can have a strong, clear message for us. Keep an open mind about your dreams. Don’t get too frustrated if you can’t work out the message right away. It might take a few days or even a few weeks before the message is clear. That’s why keeping a dream journal can be helpful, you can always refer back to it.
I hope that your mum visits you in dream state soon.
