Waking Up to Your Dreams (by Wendy Schuman)

mosswoodAre you a frustrated dreamer? I know I am. I often wake up with fragments of scenes echoing in my mind that seem really meaningful–but then I leap out of bed, start my morning routine, and in seconds they’re gone. I want to linger in that realm and tap into the guidance and insight rising from a wiser source than my conscious mind.

Beliefnet’s new blogger Robert Moss addresses exactly that longing in his blog Dream Gates: “What’s that? You’re going through a dream drought? And you don’t notice much magic in the round of your days? Don’t worry: you have a world-class dreamer inside you who is ready to help you reopen your dream gates.”


A wonderful writer and brilliant teacher, Robert was raised in Australia where Aboriginal Dreamtime is a sacred path into “the world behind the world.” Robert has a unique approach to exploring dreams, called Active Dreaming–one that is playful, imaginative, and fun! “Dreaming is essentially about waking up to the bigger story and the deeper logic of our lives,” says Robert. 

Enjoy the profound and inspiring world of Dream Gates.

    I was sent this email from my favorite cousin who is also one of my favorite people. I wrote about it on my blog at It involves Italy, You Tube, and hugging. If you don’t have time for my ramblings, please give this a second. It will show you that like a smile a hug is also free if you allow it to be.

    That’s a very good piece of writing, the way you have described the picture of the early morning is quite interesting. It just creates a picture of the time in our minds. I think that dreaming is a very good thing but to have have it capitalize is a completely different thing.

    Thanks for these, but I am sure that most of us do not remember what are their dreams are. I am one of those people.

    Wow! This article really spoke to me, and I’m sure so many other people can relate. My personal dreams are intense, and very real. I always looked at my dreams as my subconscious mind, not any sign from the highest power. I realize to appreciate the power of my dreams, but to not let them influence my daily decisions. I let Spirit tell me what I need to do. 😉 Thoughts? And thanks for the article – beautiful picture for this! ~ Blessings
