Dreaming to heal our lives

In our dreams, we have access to a personal doctor who makes house calls, provides an impeccable diagnosis of our physical, emotional and spiritual condition, and doesn’t charge a cent. If we are not in touch with our dreams, we are missing out on a tremendous resource for self-healing. Here’s why:

  • The body talks to us in dreams. It shows us what it needs to stay well and previews possible symptoms long before they manifest. If we recognize these messages from the body, and act on them, we may be able to avoid painful and costly medical intervention further down the trail.
  • Dreams are also experiences of the soul, and show us the spiritual sources of wellness and illness. The Iroquois say that dreams reveal the “secret wishes of the soul” – as opposed to the narrow agendas of the ego. If we honor the soul’s purpose, as revealed in dreams, we move towards health and balance. In traditional Iroquois practice, it is the duty of the community to listen to dreams in order to help the dreamer to identify and honor the wishes of the soul.
  • Our dreams provide us with fresh imagery and energy for self-healing.
  • By going back inside our dreams and consciously reshaping our inner dramas, we may be able to help shift the body in the direction of health.
  • Dreams invite us to reclaim vital soul energy lost through pain or grief or addiction. Absence of dream recall is sometimes a symptom of soul loss. Dreams in which we encounter a younger version of ourselves or return again and again to earlier scenes from our lives may be invitations to bring home parts of our energy and identity that went missing.
  • We can bring through dream guidance for others as well as ourselves.
  • Dreams give us a direct line to sacred sources of guidance and healing. In sacred sleep, the ancients not only sought diagnosis and healing images; they sought a direct encounter with the Divine Healer. We can ask for dream healing in the same way.

    So true, we need to tune into our bodies, then we will have perfect health

    I had a nice series of dreams last night. I think it was like working at different levels of healing. First I got rid of some furniture, kept the brown coach. Then journey with a flow of colors and lights into transforming the green into a magnificent vibrant form. And on to work with the little people. My first step to these dreams was to get recharged from working in a community/family of dreamers at a sanctuary on a mountain. I know the right community, which can be I trusted friend, is like a wonder drug for me:)
