Journaling Your Dreams

Morning Meds; 6 10 22

If you are a dreamer, it is important to journal your dream.

For me, I believe that the line between our dream/spiritual world and our physical world is quite thin, it is only the width of a thought.

I have found that journaling allows us to cross reference dreams.

For instance.

The separation between the two states of dreaming and waking.

For a long time, I had rivers and streams of varying forms in my dreams.

I was always on the west side of each and was faced with the awareness that I needed to cross them.

In meditation I would imagine ways to accomplish that.

There came a time that I had dreams that I was on a bridge that didn’t cross the river instead it ran lengthwise with the river.

The land of everyday realities was on the south and my spiritual side was on the north.

I had a dream of driving home from work in my truck on such a bridge.

I have to cross the Missouri river to get home, so the river seemed familiar, but it had never been in its center.

Suddenly the bridge ended, and I plummeted over the end and did a nosedive into the river.

I kept saying in the dream, “brace for impact, brace for impact.”

The truck and I entered the water, and we sank.

I was suddenly surrounded by the silence of being under water.

I was still bracing, holding my breath and clutching the steering wheel.

In that silence I realized that there was no impact to brace for and still holding my breath, I swam to the surface as the current carried me downstream.

The day had changed into night, and I swam towards the northern shore.

There is more to the dream…

I have always been on the eastern or the northern side of the rivers ever sense that dream.

If I had not kept a journal, I wouldn’t have been aware of how the river was a repeating symbol in my dreams, for the dreams would have gotten lost in my daily shuffle.

Writing them down helps to lock them in.

I could go back through my journals and pinpoint the night I drove off the bridge.

Also, all the dreams with rivers contained a landscape that I could see across the river, I can now access those symbols through meditation.

They are in the journals.

I just take short notes, key figures and symbolism, landscape, direction.

I can’t type so I just scribble away.

I can go back to my scribbles and the dream will reawaken.

If you are a dreamer, find your way to journal your dreams.

They are gifts from beyond to help us navigate our lives.

Pleasant dreams.

My wife Cheryl and I live in St. Joseph, Missouri. She is retired and watches three of our 12 grandchildren and 1 greatgrandchild. I work as a maintenance man at Highland Community College in Highland, Kansas. I have a BA in Art with an emphasis in ceramics. I am a second degree Reiki practitioner and BQH (Beyond Quantum Healing) practitioner. I started writing spiritual related posts in 2018 and started sharing them on a few different Facebook sites. This site is to consolidate and re-share them. It is also to share short stories based on images seen while in meditation. My hopes are that it will inspire others to use the powerful tool of visualisation to enhance their spiritual journey. Thank you.
