Dreams Are Real To Me!

Updated on July 14, 2011

Words to Somewhere Over the Rainbow

How Real and Vivid our Your Dreams?

Are you one of those people who have dreams? Not just ordinary, or weird dreams, but dreams that are very vivid? So vivid that it was like watching a movie in your sleep. You can remember colors, events, names, numbers, conversations and interactions. When you awake you realize that you just came from another dimension. You wake up as if your in shock to your new surroundings, like the movie "Quantum Leap!"

Your dream was so real, you can't believe it didn't really happen. So as you are waking up, you are having to rewind your mind, to readjust your thinking, telling yourself it was just a dream. Yet, just a dream was not it, it was no ordinary dream to you. It was real. Well this I found out...just within the last 8 months is called: "True Memories".

I have had dreams that made such an impact in my life, that the affects made a life changing experience for me. Some people can't believe, that I see my dreams in color and that they make sense...or that I can figure out why the dream happened the way it did. Don't you think it is interesting how your subconscious mind, puts things together! Previous days events, or when you have something heavy on your heart.

My dreams seem to be a collage of who I am, and how I live. I want to make a difference in other peoples lives. Many years I went without telling others of my dreams, writings or thoughts. I felt they were just meant for me, and that others couldn't relate. (Yet I am learning that some things are meant to be shared:) I had good and bad dreams, but I learned something from most of them. Not realizing it at the time...I would share my thoughts, and positive feelings by creating things for other people. I'd think of something that they would love, that they could relate to. I would put their feelings or what they're all about into a form art or card, designed especially for them.

Funny huh, I just realized, I thought I could be myself, to just be a recluse? Yet what made me happy was to be able to make things, that made others happy! So my happiness depended on other people...this was the way I lived my life for so long? My art was my voice!

Are there other people out there like me?People that put their feelings into some other form? Where those closest to them could see, what you have seen, feel what you have felt, yet not acknowleding this with words, but expressions from the heart?

Words could not explain the depth of the dreams, yet maybe it was just me, that felt like I had no voice! No one cared or wanted to hear about anything personal to me? Other people were always more important...I think I still believe that to this day. The big world out there is pretty scary growing up. I was hurting and didn't want to be hurt anymore! Bad things do happen to good and inocent people. Of course not meaning to, I rejected people, or was not open to some people, because I was used to being rejected myself. I do have to say there has been much healing in my life, God has done a work in me:)

Over the years even when I thought I knew, I didn't know about life the way I should know about life:) There had been many hard times, it seemed normality for my life was, to be serious, and to always be on guard. Life was not fun, there was no time for fun, it was too serious. Afteral I had responsibilities, younger siblings, I had to watch out for, help take care of. What I came to know for me, is that I had for many years been under spiritual attack. The spirit realm was real to me. I felt it and saw evidence of it. I too made stupid mistakes, where the consequences are also very real to this day.

I became a recluse? There were many times in my life, where I did not want to interact with people...I could do it, but my energy would be drained when I was done. I would try to deal with life on my own, try to keep things under control. I found out like many of you, that there are things beyond our control. Before I knew it, I had found...I had allowed myself to get into a depression.

There was more to it than depression...to my bewilderment, I realized I was under oppression! Maybe you don't know much about that, and again maybe you do? This was very real. I knew the only way to overcome it was by the power of God. Only God can overcome the evil forces that are upon you. The evil is set out to destroy us, whether we are believers in Christ or not.

I was taken through a series of events and people that God brought into my life to help heal me from the inside out. These things that happened and the people that I met, were out of my control. Some of things were hard for me to face, to change the boundaries I had set for and upon myself...for so long! For starters, a close friend recommended this book to me called: "Bondage Breaker" by: Neil T. Anderson. You might check this out, if you are experiencing spiritual bondage in anyway?

Even if you believe this verse, and apply it to your life....(That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth The Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto Salvation."Romans 10:9-10 kjv)....you still need the spirit power of God, to overcome the temptations and spiritual attacks that happen in our lives. And if you give your heart to The Lord, you can rely on God's strength to overcome!

So much to share, need to stop...I think I've said more, than maybe you care to hear? I just hope and pray, this writing can relate to someone who is in need of His tender loving care:)

May your dreams be a Heavenly True Memory!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you have a favorite scripture that has helped you overcome darkness?

      Hi Heart, I understand completely. I to have had some vivid dreams in my life that have help me in my walk with God. This hub reminds me of me. ? You stated. “yet maybe it was just me, that felt like I had no voice! No one cared or wanted to hear about anything personal to me? Other people were always more important...I think I still believe that to this day. The big world out there is pretty scary growing up. I was hurting and didn't want to be hurt anymore! Bad things do happen to good and inocent people. Of course not meaning to, I rejected people, or was not open to some people, because I was used to being rejected myself. I do have to say there has been much healing in my life, God has done a work in me:)” That is me!! I am that person that does not share much with family and friends because of the thought of “who am I” But praise God for his healing power. Thank you for your hubs.

      Dream on, this was one of my first hubs...this writing was done prior to becoming a hub-member. I re-read it, it does tend to want to make a person feel down, but this was where I was at, at the time of the writing. God did bring me through, as mentioned in this hub...He started a work in me, healing me from the inside out:) I have had to make some changes in life, to take care of myself first, in order to be able to be of any help to others:) Thank you, for taking the time to read, hope you read some of my more current hubs...I think you will see theres been changes:) Love and Prayers to you too:)

      Dreams "ARE" real. Everyone has them, watching animals sleep you can tell they have them too. Thoughts are things, how else could an EEG machine work?

      Great hub !

      This Book Victory Over Darkness is also a great book. Some people have told me this was a life changing book for them. Yet the Bible is far above any book written:)
