It is not only in our dreams that we receive messages from our soul. Everyday of our lives, in each moment the universe, Spirit or God is speaking to us in dreams, signs, symbols, coincidences and synchronicities too. At night when we go to sleep you can ask for a dream to clarify a situation, inspire you or help you make an important decision. We can apply the same technique in our waking time to by asking the universe for a sign or symbol that will help us make a right choice, ease our minds or help us with conditions in our life. They are messages that can pertain to your current life, your future life or something you really need to know.
Where do Signs come from?
Signs come from cultures, religions, secret societies, your heritage and the collective unconscious of the human race. I cannot tell you all the history and information here in this article regarding signs and symbols, it is much too much for here and now in my article. I can tell you if you have seen the movies, The DaVinci Code or Angels and Demons that Tom Hanks plays the character role of Robert Langdon who studies signs and is a professor of sort on signs and symbols. Basically, signs serve as messengers of important information about your current life or future or can be reflections of what is going on with you in your life and inside of you. I believe that signs are from all mentioned above and God, Spirit or the Universe – Whatever you feel comfortable calling The ALL That Is. And I am happy to share with you my experiences and knowledge gleaned from signs in my life.
How do signs work?
I have called on signs or symbols for many years, even though I don’t recall when and where I first used one. I know that I have always known that even little things, coincidences mean something more than first thought to mean. Have you ever been in a hurry and when you are trying to leave your house or office the phone rings, then you drop your briefcase and papers go flying, then you cannot find your keys and the darn situation just keeps going on and on and you are thinking to yourself “damn I just want to go what is the deal here?!” Then just as you take a moment, take a deep breath, your intuition tells you to just wait. Just then call comes in that was your friend that you were rushing out the door to meet telling you they are canceling or maybe the elevator got stuck and had you been on it you would have been stuck in it too. This is a messenger sign letting you know that hey wait a minute your timing is off…just wait.
Signs also reflect our inner world, acknowledged or not and they reflect our beliefs. This where the like attracts like thing comes into play too. If you are person who thinks all wealthy people are crooks then you will only see and hear stories and experience wealthy people who are crooks. Even if you are conscious of thinking no not all wealthy people are crooks your inner core belief still radiates out that energy or all rich people are crooks and that is what you attract. You must deal with the belief at the core subconscious level in order to eradicate it and change it for the better for you to attract better. If you really want to know what you truly feel and believe look around your life and see who and what is in it and what its reflecting to you.
How do signs appear in your life?
As mentioned above, it can be something not going along as you like it, being delayed obviously! If you ask the universe for a sign here are a few ways that the sign can appear to you:
Dreams: These dream signs can be coming from Spirit and or both your higher self pay attention to the most outstanding symbol, sign, word, phrase, emotion or song from a dream and see how it plays out in your waking life to understand it’s message.
Conversations: Pay attention to conversations, “slips of the tongue”, or over heard conversations (there is a reason they are having the conversation for you to be able to hear it.) Practice more on truly listening and not thinking about what you are going to say when you are in a conversation in order to hear messages for you. Be in the moment.
Random thoughts: Pay attention to fleeting seemingly random thoughts that pass through your mind while you are doing something or being “normal
Songs/Music: Have you ever started singing a song or humming a tune or I personally wake up almost every morning with some random song in my head. What are the words or title it could be a message for you.
Radio, Television and Movies: Words, scenes, commentary can all be a conveyance for a message to get to you.
Books, magazines, billboards, printed words: A word or phrase will jump out at you from the page. Sometimes, for a quick reading or answer to a question I will grab a book and sit with it for a few minutes quiet my mind and then ask a question and open the book and see what the first word or sentence to jump out at me says. Many times, it is just what I need to know.
People: People (known and unknown) can be put on your path to cross with you and give you the answer you need. If you think of a particular person that usually means to call them or see them that they have a message for you. Every single person is meant to see you or cross paths and you them otherwise we would not see them. Just think, you could be carrying a message for them too. It’s not always about us!
These are just a few ways signs are present in our lives or that we can call on signs and look for their message to come from. Part II to this article in the following post.
As I always say, remember we are the only one’s that can truly know what things mean to us. I only offer to help you to understand and coach you through the process of discovering the meaning of your soul messages for you.
I welcome your comments and or questions and I am glad to be of help with dreams, signs, spirit communication or metaphysical related questions.
Love itself is a feeling of great fondness, strong affection, something or someone cherished. Love has so many degrees of feelings, from generic, impersonal to passionate, deep desire and intimacy. There is platonic love, familial love, romantic love, religious love, on up to deep passionate desirable heart, soul and body on fire love!
These degrees of love can play out in our dreams in a myriad of ways.
Let’s take a look at some of them –
Flowers are of course big symbols of love. In our dreams flowers symbolize beautiful, kind thoughts, loving thoughts, joy, compassion, grace, healing and abundance. They can also be “time tellers” as certain flowers are associated with particular times of the year.
Floral bouquet given or received in your dreams symbolizes love, affection, appreciation and admiration. In a dream, when you receive flowers as a gift pay attention to the type of flower(s) in the bouquet and the color(s) to understand the fullest meaning.
A rose is the symbol of spiritual love, beauty, Christ love. One that is also fragrant in the dream is a good indication that an angel or spiritual being is close to you.
White Rose(s): Pure, unconditional love, holy or cosmic love
Pink Rose(s): Love, affection, kindness and compassion
Red Rose(s): Romantic love, personal love, being in love, passion and desire
Tulips: Can be a play on ‘two lips’ kissing! They represent joy and spring, hope, faith and charity.
One of the ways our dreams tell us about our emotions is through color. Dreaming in color or of a particular color that stands out on an object, clothing, background etc. represents emotions attached to the color. Love and romance are represented by the colors: pink, red, wine, blue and violet.
Kissing, being kissed in dreams can obviously be romantic and is a show of love and affection. However, if the kiss is in a non-romantic way or the overall feeling of the dream is negative then this could indicate deception. As in the Judas kiss.
There are so many more symbols of love and each of us has our own special symbols of love in addition to common ones we share. As I always remind you when interpreting your dreams it so important to ask yourself first for what your meaning is for any symbol before looking to any dictionary or someone else’s meaning. In understanding the meaning of your dream I think the most important clue is the feeling you have upon awaking from it. Then go from there to figure the rest out.
Have you ever had a dream of school? Being in school? Or going to school?
Many of us have at one time or another. As listed in my top 25 dream symbols school is one of the common dream themes we understand as a group. The dream symbol is usually the background theme of a dream and can be an action symbol (learning) when interpreting your dream. This can be your level of learning (school) of thought. Pay attention to what grade level you are attending in the dream, as this is an indication as to what level you are operating at in regards to a particular situation. School can also be a negative aspect of feeling indoctrinated. A school is considered a building as in school house or school building (duh?) and buildings represent our various states of consciousness, awareness, associations and general belief system. The type of building in your dream points out a particular state of consciousness in your dream.
In general, school pertains to learning or opportunity for knowledge, growth experience, expansion of consciousness or mind improvement. Level or type of school would indicate your level of learning. i.e. kindergarten, grade school, high school, college. College, University and Graduate School are places of higher academia, specialized and or more focused training, advanced learning and training. These are places of exchange of ideas, trying new things, and also these are places of social and cultural concepts and changes.
Perhaps you have had a dream of being in a particular class or classroom, this could indicate that there is room for further learning on a particular subject. Were there any books or anything written on the chalk board or maybe decorations that could point you to what the subject is. Was there a specific teacher there? What do you associate that teacher with (if you had her/him in the past)? If the teacher is a friend or parent or relative this teacher characterizes someone in your life that is capable of teaching something important. Think of what that teacher represents to you. Maybe play the association game or the first three thoughts that come to mind when you think of that person. These can all help disifer the dream message.
Having school work is a reminder to us that we must keep working hard and applying ourselves if we want to learn.
If you are attending school right now and dream of being at a lower level or higher level than you are in your waking life, this is like others dreaming of their workplace. It would indicate your level of knowledge or behaviour in a particular area. Maybe you are acting like a pre-schooler or are you smarter than a fifth grader? Or it’s all elementary my dear. Again, as I always say interpreting your dreams takes time and you must look at all things as a puzzle that fit together to understand the message.
