Welcome to our article (8), Dreamland dreams and beliefs
May God guide and help me to write the right things in this article?
Dear readers, in these dreamland articles, while we are talking about our dreams, we are also going to suggest a religious way that could help in the future, so, when we pray God to help us at the beginning of our articles; we can pray thus; may God of the universe help me say the right things in these dreamland and religious writings?
Anyhow, in this article of Dreamland dreams and beliefs, we are going to explain dreams type two and three and then open the door of our spiritual dreams, that we are going to write later; you see, this article is the continuation of our previous article, Mankind Dreamland, therefore, it is the continuation and explanation of dreams type two and three.
So, now let us talk about sleeping dreams, type-two and three, since we have already classified dreams type one as being shallow dreams that are brought about from our daily activities and our body needs.
But dreams type two and three are different from dreams type 1. So, we could say that, these two types of dreams 2 and 3, are the normal mental dreams and deep psychological dreams, they are the real dreams that we dream, and they may seem strange sometimes, since we dream them when are in a deep sleep or waking up from a deep sleep; they could be called the dreams of our minds, or perhaps our souls. These dreams seem completely detached from the present body needs that we might have at the time when we dream them, and therefore, they cannot be explained easily like dreams type one, for this reason we don’t know exactly how and why we dream such dreams, but we are going to work out an explanation somehow.
Of course, these dreams type 2 and 3 may be trigged from long past experience that surface in our mind while we are sleeping; or they may be of a psychological nature; so, while our mind is at rest from our busy way of life when we are awake, our brain tries to sort things out, and tries to make sense in its own way while we are asleep. Some of these dreams may remind us of long past events, or they may be strange in nature and make no sense at all. They are or seem to be a bit like the dream in type-one, but they are not because we can’t find the connection to our daily activities or present body needs; but there could be a connection if we look for it in our life overall, and this connection is more mental than physical, or at least it seems so, because there are also those things that our body requires but we are not aware of it, and then, there are our own religious beliefs and other things that play a part in modifying our dreams.
When we think about it, all these things put together may create a problem for our mind, and this problem must be solved somehow, so, our mind solves these problems by dreaming strange dreams; you see, it is like when you have a problem in real life and you tell a friend about it, after you tell your friend your problem, you might feel better about it. In my own personal experience, I always feel more relaxed after dreaming something no matter what, sometimes I feel as if some chemicals have been released in my brain; so, dreaming for us might be beneficial overall, even when we don’t understand why we have dreamed such strange dreams.
Our dreams could they be useful?
Understanding these type of dreams
We have always tried to understand the types of dreams that we dream. Anyhow, the normal mental dreams and the psychological dreams come at the same level of awareness, therefore, they can’t be separated easily, as they are both mental and therefore detached from our body needs, so, they are not like type one dreams, and for this reason they are harder to explain.
Anyhow, mankind has been interested about the meaning of these dreams; because they are detached from our bodily needs, and the belief about the possibility that our mind could be tuning-in to a different dimension, which can exist and it is believed to be in the cosmic life-force of the universe, including the afterlife world of the dead, where the souls of our ancestor are supposed to be after death.
Some people believe that the dead people know everything before it happens, so, they want to warn us about these things, and they try to communicate with us through these dreams, where they can give us coded messages, since they are not allowed to tell us in a straightforward way, at least this is what many people believe.
Because of these beliefs that exist in people minds, there are groups of people that are putting special meanings in these type of dreams, and they think that it is possible to foretell some future events from the dreams that we dream.
In fact, there are so many people that believe in their dreams, and they would like to know their meanings, some of these people would be worried if they have had a bad dream, as they believe that the dream may have foretold them of an oncoming bad event. These believers of dreams would usually tell their dreams to their special close partners, relative or friends that believe in dreams the same way they do; and by telling them their dreams, they hope that their friends would be able to help them find what those dreams could mean, but in the end, everything remains as confuse as before.
But, because we believe that the dream can mean something, we want to ask what that dream could mean?
Now, let us suppose that the dreams have a message for the dreamer! Then: What could a certain dream mean to a certain person?
Here we need to point out that even if you are an expert of dreams, we don’t think that there is anybody that could answer what that dream means positively, because the same dream may have a different meaning to a different person. Because the person that is telling the dream has got to take into consideration also his own feelings while he is dreaming, because I believe that his/her feelings are the most important part to consider for understanding dreams: that is if one wants really to understand dreams. But the feelings of a dreamer can’t be passed on easily, and for this reason it is very hard to understand other people dreams, as they seem to be all over the place and meaningless to the listener. Because everyone has his own way of dreaming, and also of understanding dreams, and therefore, he will dream his dreams according to his own beliefs and imagination, and it is for this reason, that only the dreamer himself is the person that is most capable of understanding his own dreams.
There are some rules of course on how to know what your dreams might mean: But I haven’t tried to learn and to know them properly. So, when I speak about the meanings of dreams, I speak only about my own life experience and what my mother and my grandma have told me when I was young, and a few stories that I have heard about dreams.
However, I believe that there could be some meanings in dreams, because if I dream a certain dream at night, and the day after something happens that seems very similar to my dream, I must accept that my dream has foretold me the happening; What else can I do, and for that matter what else one would do?
I know that it is only afterward when something has taken place, that we are able to say that what has taken place is very much the same as our dream was, and therefore we believe that, that dream was meant to foretell us the oncoming event.
So, it is events like these that will make us always wonder and ask the questions, whether the dreams that we dream are there to foretell us the future. And if they are: What could we do about it? Could we find an advantage by knowing the meanings of our dreams?
Perhaps we could, if we try to learn our own dreams by remembering the dreams and what happens afterward, so, let us try to understand dreams for ourselves and what we could do to help us understand our dreams.
Understanding dreams for ourselves
To understand our own dreams, there are a few questions that we must ask ourselves and do the following.
(1) Let us start looking at the dreams that we dream.
(2) Let us ask ourselves what sort of dreams they are.
(3) Let us ask ourselves why we do dream such dreams.
So, what sorts of dreams I generally dream?
Are my dreams happy dreams, or sad dreams?
Do I feel secure while I dream, or do I feel threatened?
Are there friendly people with me, or are they hostile?
Can I move freely in my dreams, or I must struggle to move?
Am I alone in a large open space, or am I in a maze wanting to find my way out?
When a dreadful dream ends, does it end because I wake up from fear? Or does it end because I have somehow overcome the dangerous obstacles and the dream just finishes, and I wake up because it is time to wake up.
So, we can keep asking ourselves many more questions like these above: But in the end we will have only a confused idea about what our dreams could mean.
But let us look more closely about what we have asked ourselves above. When we do that we will see, that in any sort of dreams, one could also assume that the degree that the dreamer feels in the dreams; of happiness or sadness; of security or threat; of friendliness or hostility, and whatever else one can feel, could really be the way that one feels within oneself in real life. And there are times that the dreamer is aware of it or becomes aware if he/she reflects about the dreams.
Therefore, these dreams can be said to be of psychological nature, because they deal about our thinking and what we feel within our own mind, whether we are aware of it or not makes no much difference, because while we dream our mind reviews and tries to find an acceptable explanation about our feelings and anything else that seems to be our problem.
So, all these sorts of dreams suggest that while we are sleeping our mind is not completely resting: but it is reviewing our life and our past, so that it can adjust our thoughts in such a way that they would make sense to our own mind, then our mind files them in its own way and be in peace with itself, so, the dreams could be useful for that reason also.
But there are some dreams that cannot be explained, just by using the explanation that we have written above. Because they don’t seem to belong neither to the body nor to the mind of the dreamer: But they seem to come from an outside source, which is capable to influence our minds while we are sleeping. Perhaps our minds can really listen to messages from the cosmos when we are sleeping, through our own sixth sense; or our subconscious mind could really be tuning-in in a different dimension of the cosmos, since this is the only time when our mind is free and therefore capable of doing this tune in, or could it be our ancestors’ souls as some people believe they do, when they try to communicate something to us.
We will try to explain this, in Dreams from the other side, where we are using one of my personal dreams, as an example.
Dreams from the other side
Now, we want to talk about; if some dreams that we dream could come from the other side, here we mean the spiritual world of the dead; to do that we need to tell you some dreams that could have come from the other side. Now, since I happen to have dreamed a dream that I believe has come from the other side, let me use this dream as an example.
So, here I am telling you one of my dreams, that I believe has come from the other side. I have dreamed this dream a very long time ago, which is before any other dreams that will follow in our religious writings. This dream is kept within my mind because of its special message it has conveyed to me, and because it has almost proved to me that there is an Afterlife, and that sometimes one of the spirits of our ancestors can really come to us in our dreams, and give us some sort of messages to help us understand the situation that we could be in.
This dream of mine can seem a bit strange, because it seems to be a teaching dream from an ancient spirit, who wants to teach me how to wash dishes in a necessary and special way.
Anyhow, when I dreamed this dream I was old enough, perhaps in my late forties: but in my dream I was a young lad about twelve, and there was with me this old and wise lady in her sixties, (This difference in age between me and the old lady would be there in the dream, only to show that I was a newcomer to the world, compared to the old lady that must have been ancient, and that had lived her life longlife long before my time, as she seemed to me very wise.) anyhow, we were at an ancient but still existing fountain in my native town of Genzano, this fountain is an ancient fountain called La Cavallina, which is a fountain that I have already written about in our articles somewhere, one of which is, The town I came from, this is the link
Anyhow, in my dream, while we were at this fountain, I had with me half a dozen dishes and some cutlery that I had to wash, and then I had to take them back home, which would have been the house of my grandma in the old part of the town; the old lady that I was with was instructing me to wash the dishes only under the first spout of the fountain, which is the most upstream spout, and to keep the dishes and everything else only in the small bay under the first spout, because that was the only way to have the dishes hygienically clean. So, I sure followed her instructions and washed the dishes how and where she said, but in the end somehow a few of my dishes ended up in the second bay of the fountain, and I was worried, but the old lady said don’t worry: I protested to her and said; but you said to me, that to keep the dishes hygienically clean they must be kept only in the first bay, and now some of my dishes are in the second bay, and they have been contaminated; what can I do? And the old wise lady replayed to me again. Don’t worry just for this time, because when you wake up you’ll know why it is all right just for this time.
The dream ends there, and when I woke up I realized that it was only a dream: Therefore, if the dishes were contaminated it didn’t really matter, just because it was only a dream and it wasn’t real life. But the teaching of how to wash the dishes, in case there was an outbreak of infectious disease that could infect people using contaminated food or utensils was to be learned from this dream.
I believe that the old lady in my dream is the spirit of one of my forbears, and she must have lived during an epidemic of infectious disease, where she had learned that to survive one has to wash dishes and other utensils properly under running spring water only. So, in my dream she wanted to pass her knowledge to me.
I suppose that my dream above is enough for me to make me believe about the afterlife, and that dreams can come from the other side. And this dream makes me believe, that it is possible while we sleep to get in touch with our ancestors through the cosmos, or whatever there is that can get us in touch with the souls of our ancestors.
We may say here that dreams like this could even be useful sometime. But we must keep in mind, that we have no power to make these dreams happen, and they can and will only happen when they happen. Here we could add that perhaps the souls of the dead people might have some power to make it happen, but we don’t. For us it is like coming across something that we have never seen or done before, so, we have no control over it. Or perhaps we could say that it is like tuning in something new, and while we were sleeping we have accidentally tuned in somehow. Perhaps random tuning in could be one of the reasons of dreaming such dreams. Now, let us look at this possibility of dreaming and tuning in.
Your dreams and my dream mean something
Dreaming and tuning in the cosmos
I believe that we should keep an open mind here, by accepting that it is possible that we can be tuning in some records held in the cosmos of the universe when we are dreaming, or some spiritual forces that might happen to be around us at the time when we are dreaming, because we feel that there is a link here; so, let us look at some examples about our dreams:
We may dream of something, and when we wake up and start talking to a family member or a friend, they start taking about the same thing that we have dreamed, even before we start talking about it ourselves. Or perhaps we find that they have dreamed a dream very much like ours. Would it be just a coincidence? Is it possible that there is an external force that has made this possible? Or, is it possible that our minds can communicate our thoughts while we are asleep? Even if it is only in a very confuse way?
These happenings may suggest that, there could be a force or a record available around us when we are dreaming, so, it is easy for us to tune in the same stuff at about the same time; or perhaps, our minds may have a sixth sense about communication without words when we are asleep, but our minds have no control about these communications, and they happen only if they happen; perhaps when two minds by chance tune on the same wave lengthwavelength.
Now, this makes me think of other possibilities, there could be a chance that our minds could be able to communicate with each other one day, at the beginning only when we are asleep, but one day in the faraway future, we will learn how to communicate properly.
This sixth sense that we seem to have, in theory could be able to tune in the cosmos, including the afterlife world which is part of it, therefore, through this sixth sense that we have, it could become possible for passed-away people to give us coded messages in our dreams, as the ancient people seemed to believe. I am saying this since people dream about their deceased relatives and friends and they believe that those relative and friends want to tell them something; this is hard to say if it could be true, but we should continue to investigate it and at the same time try to understand our dreams.
Here I’d like to say something about what some dream could mean, and what we should be looking for, if we want to understand our own dreams.
When we dream of passed away relatives or friends, are they males or females? Do we feel that they want to convey something to us? Do they seem concerned about us, or they seem normal? Is the dream easy or complex? And many other things we should ask ourselves.
Here I would like to say that most people believe that, to dream about a passed away man is a good omen, but a passed away woman is a warning, and the degree of the dream being easy or complex, is the degree that the dreamer may feel if anything happens like the dream.
It would be helpful to remember what sort of dreams one dreams, and the people that are in your dreams, whether they bring you happy tidings or warnings. And then keeping them in mind which people bring happy tidings, and which may bring warnings, whether they are alive or dead sometimes doesn’t make any difference.
During my life I have had lots of dreams of all shapes and forms, and within these dreams there is a very special dream, and I believe that it is a very special dream for me.
So, I would like to tell you my dream, because I believe that all our dreams help our mind to restore its balance, and this is one of those dreams that covers just about every need that a person needs in a dream, to adjust one’s own needs of the body, mind and soul. And it is perhaps for this reason that I put so much importance in this dream. And there is also another reason why this dream seems very important to me, it is because it has somehow changed my way of thinking, and perhaps my way of living.
Because in this dream I seem to have been mentally in touch with the cosmos, whether I have really been in touch with the cosmos or not it is not possible to prove, and it could turn out to be only all my mind work. But I like very much to believe that in my dream I got really in touch with the cosmos, and really, I did reach the highest active life-force of the universe, God.
Now I would have liked to talk about the most important dream of my life here, because this is the place that would make sense, but I cannot because it has been published at this address, http://manneedsgod.blogspot.com I hope it works for you.
Anyhow, I believe that we have already said enough in this dreamland article, but, we will continue to talk about our dreams, as there are more spiritual dreams that we want to talk about, in our next chapter that we are going to call; Cosmic spiritual dreams. See you there?
May God bless us all?
