Dreamland dreams continues
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, since in these religious articles that we are writing now together with our dreamland articles, we are going to put forward a new religious way of seeing religious things in the future, since we believe that it might help the future religions better somehow; so, when we pray God at the beginning of our articles; we could have said also, may God of the universe by using the knowledge that exists in the universe about dreams; help me say the right things in these dreamland and religious writings?
Anyhow, welcome to this article, Dreamland dreams and beliefs, where 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 on; as you can see this hub is the continuation of our previous hub, Menfranco Dreamland, therefore, hereunder is the continuation and explanation of dreams type two and three, as we haven’t been able to do that in our previous article.
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 seem to be brought about from our daily activities and also our body needs.
But dreams type two and three are a bit different from dreams type 1. So, we could say that, these two types of dreams 2 and 3; being the normal mental dreams and deep psychological dreams, they are the real dreams that we dream and they may seem strange sometimes, since as we have said we dream them when we seem to be in a deep sleep or waking up from a deep sleep; they could or would 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 could not be explained easily like the bodily 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 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 usually seem to remind us of long past events, or they may be very strange in nature and make no sense at all, if one compares them to real life. 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 easily create a problem for our mind so to speak, and this problem must be solved somehow, and our mind solves its own problem by dreaming these 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 a little 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; and here, as far as we can see, the normal mental dreams and the psychological dreams seem to 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.
Because of their nature, mankind has been interested for a very long time about their meanings. So, because of these dreams detached nature from our present bodily needs, and the belief about the possibility that our mind could be tuning-in to a different dimension, which could really exist and it is believed to be in the cosmic life-force of the whole universe, and also our afterlife world, and therefore the land of the dead, where the souls of our ancestor are supposed to be after death. Some people believe that our ancestors can communicate to us through these dreams, and they would give us coded messages since they are not allowed to tell us in a straightforward way, and warn us about what’s going to happen next, for some unexplained reasons, they cannot do that, but, they would or are supposed to know already everything before it happens, 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 could mean something, we would still be asking; what could that dream mean?
So, let us suppose that the dreams really 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 each individual 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 reasons, 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 also a few stories that I have heard around 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 have to 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 particular 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 really 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
So, here are a few of the questions that one has to ask oneself in order to understand his own dreams:
(1) Let us start looking at the dreams that we dream.
(2) Let us ask ourselves what sort of dreams are they.
(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 have to 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 just 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 really 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 also 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, in order to file 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. If you would like to know what we think about this sort of dreaming from the other side, you need to look for an answer here-under, where we are going to talk about, Dreams from the other side, where we are using one of my personal dreams, as an example.
Dreams from the other side
First of all, we want to talk about, if some dreams that we dream could really be said that they come from the other side, here we mean the spiritual world of the dead. In order to do that we need to tell some dreams that could be said that they 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, I am telling you one of my dreams, that I believe it’s going to show you exactly what we mean, when we say that some dreams 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 spiritual or religious writings. This dream is still kept within my mind because of its special message that it has conveyed to me, and also because it almost has 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 might 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 perhaps 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 longlifelong before my time, as she seemed to me very wise.) anyhow, we were at an ancient and still existing fountain in my native town, (Genzano) this fountain is an ancient fountain called La Cavallina, which is a fountain that I have already written about in our writings somewhere in the town where I came from; 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 very 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 in order 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 also, 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 one has to keep in mind, that one has no power to make these dreams happen, and it can and will only happen if and when it happens. 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 and 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 take a look at this possibility of dreaming and tuning in.
Your dreams and my dream mean something
Dreaming and tuning in
I believe that we should keep an open mind and accept, that perhaps, it is really possible that we could be able of tuning in to some records held in the cosmos of the universe, or some spiritual forces that might happen to be around us at the time when we are dreaming, because we feel that there might be 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 are able to 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 and this happens, 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. But even this is still a faraway chance that could become possible one day, that is that our minds would be able to communicate with each other, at the beginning only when we are asleep and perhaps 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 lots of people even today seem to 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 could continue to look into 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 one should be looking for, if one wants to understand one’s 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 similar to 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 one’s 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 really 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, in order 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 it is one of the places that would make sense, but I have already published it somewhere else, and therefore I am not allowed to repeat it here, so if you would like to read it, you could read it in our blog called, Man needs God at this web address http://manneedsgod.blogspot.com I hope it works for you.
Anyhow, I believe that we have already said enough in this dreams article, but, we will continue to talk about our dreams, as there would be more spiritual dreams that we could talk about, in our next chapter that we are going to call; Cosmic spiritual dreams. See you there?
May God bless us all?
