How do you learn to interpret your dreams when you can’t remember them? Or if you feel horrible in the morning and suspect your dreams are horrible, too? No News is Good News…except when it comes to dream interpretation!
Someone at my recent dream interpretation workshop told me they couldn’t remember any specifics about their dreams. In fact, this person wakes up every day with the same negative emotion, but no recollection of what happened. This person wanted to know more, wanted to know what they had dreamed so they could find a solution to get past this recurring, negative feeling. Can you imagine facing each new day when the first thing you feel every morning is fear? Or, discouragement? Or rejection? Or insecurity? Or abandonment?
Most of us have those feelings occasionally, and some of us may have them frequently….but to have the same one every morning? How awful! If this is what you’ve been facing, my heart goes out to you.
It doesn’t seem fair, does it? That we make it through those really tough times, but then also have to endure the wake of emotions we don’t want to deal with. Repressed emotions we don’t want to experience can show up as lousy dreams, and can keep us stuck in a lousy cycle of lousy mornings. No one wants that!
I want you to know there is hope. If you want personal help, I’m available! You can tell me your dream HERE. Together we can face those hidden things and you can receive healing.
You can also start on your own. Begin tonight! Adopt these two important new habits designed to solve the mysteries of your nights and tame your mornings.
In The Evening:
When you lie down in bed make a conscious choice to trust God with your night. It may help to write down or say out loud something like: “God, I put myself in your care. While I sleep, I ask you to heal my wounds. I open my spirit only to your Holy Spirit. I trust You to do what is good. I’m willing to go wherever you take me, and to remember whatever is helpful.”
In The Morning:
At your first waking, lie still and notice. Keep your eyes closed and notice your physical and emotional feelings. If you have any images in your mind, dwell on them and see if they get a bit clearer. Ask God to cause you to remember anything that is helpful. If you notice the same recurring, negative emotion – let’s say, feeling lost, for example – ask God to show you what it feels like to be the opposite – like how good it feels to be found or rescued by Him. Spend a couple of minutes focused on this good, replacement feeling.
In Your Journal:
Note the good, replacement feeling God puts in your mind after you awaken, and any images that pop into your mind. Spend time dwelling on them, turning them over & over. Ask God to show you scriptures that confirm His specific good will toward you. If you need help with that, search by topic using a web Bible.
If you will commit to practicing these new morning and evening habits, the cycle will change. Time will unfold the mystery of your nights. You will leave the rut of lousy mornings!
Be patient. Sweet dreams will come!
