Dreams: Decoding messages from the Higher Self
Every night, when we are asleep, our psyche opens up dimensions to us in which we can confront, explore, and resolve our problems. Sometimes our psyches even gently encourage us to face the unspeakable. In doing this we open up even deeper layers of our inner resources. The wisdom from these depths can take on long-standing and impossible conflicts, leading to astonishing possibilities in our lives.
These transformations happen through the unconscious, which transmits its hidden power to us in the form of dreams. The unconscious contains the full story - not only aspects we might have repressed, but also factors which were previously unknown to the conscious mind. It is this big picture that we need in order to make the right decisions, to balance our feelings, and to shape our lives.
Some dreams process our day-to-day anxieties, and these are often our most common dreams. Common themes such as missing a plane, being unprepared for an exam, teeth falling out, and dirty toilets are all dreams that can point to a feeling of inadequacy in coping with daily life. We might be anxious about missing an opportunity, or we might be facing a situation that has all the terrors of an exam. Will we pass or fail the interview with the new boss or will we measure up to our mother-in-law’s expectations?
