dreaming woman redWhen we are sleeping nothing else is … your body and all its organs are all functioning, including your mind. Luckily we don’t have to tell ourselves to breathe and our heart to beat while we are sleeping! Our subconscious mind never rests or sleep, it keeps on going to keep us going, it controls our vital forces. Sleep helps us heal faster when we are sick or injured. Clearing your mind and forgiving yourself and everyone else before sleeping helps healing take place more rapidly. Lack of the appropriate amount of sleep can cause us to be irritated, depressed and can cause mental disorders. To me, dreaming is the best part of sleeping. Because I have worked for many years with my dreams and through my dreams my subconscious mind has delivered messages of hope, ideas, confirmation, solved problems, warned me and inspired me.

Prayer and Sleep bring counsel: Take a situation where you need help with making a decision as you are going to sleep say a prayer/affirmation over and over in your mind. You will awaken with an answer. It may be from a dream or it may come from an intuitive knowing/gut feeling you have upon waking.

Here is an example: A woman living in Dallas has a job offer in New York City at twice her salary she is making now in Dallas. After considering everything and doing the pro and con list etc. she was still wondering if she should take the move. So that evening before going to bed she said an affirmation/prayer regarding this matter. The next morning she awoke and had a persistent feeling to not accept the position. She phoned the company and following her gut feeling/intuition, she declined the offer. In the end, about 2 months later her inner knowing(not a good idea to move and take the position) was verified through events that the company went bankrupt.

Try it for yourself and discover the counsel your sleep brings you. As you are about to go to sleep, claim that the infinite intelligence of your subconscious mind is guiding and directing you. Then expect an answer perhaps in a dream or on awakening. You will definitely receive an answer. Another thing that I happen to do is write the question in gratitude form – “Thank you for giving me the lead or answer regarding_________(insert your dilemma) that is for the best and highest good for all concerned.” Then I fold it up and put it under my pillow. I literally sleep on it! And above all while doing this focus on knowing the right answer will come, it is already there you just have to open up to it. Remember, if you do the affirmation and write the note to sleep on and then just go back to “I don’t know, I don’t know.” thinking worry and frustration you will surely receive worry and frustration and not your answer.

Sweet Dreams.

All of us at one time or another experience stress in our lives. Times right now are stressful with the state of our nations economy, high unemployment rate and the holidays upon us can cause stress for many. When we are stressed out we have dreams that reflect our state of mind, consciously and subconsiously. Sometimes the subconsious mind will create an escape dream that is kind and warm for you to get some relief from your daily worrying. But mostly when stressed our dreams will be filled with darkness, sadness and frustrating actions and if not paid attention to the dreams will turn to nightmares.

 Stress or worrying can be described as “going around and around” a problem without coming to a solution to the problem. This kind of thinking can rob you of precious sleep.

One way of dealing with stressful times in our life is to get out and exercise. Daily brisk walks, a trip to the gym or dancing or something that lets you “blow off” the extra steam. In addition, when you are about to go to sleep make a deal with yourself to “put away” the problem for the night so you can sleep restfully. Or you can request  an answer or insight to handling your “problem” then “sleep on it” and expect an answer when you wake up.

Program yourself to deal with your problems instead of evading them in hopes of them just going away without you facing them.  This is where working with your dreams can really help. Journaling  helps relieve alot stress just by getting your thoughts out on paper. You can also write down a question in your dream journal and expect an answer or insight in the morning. Remembering to record your dreams (no matter how crazy they seem upon waking,) is important,  there is a message or a lead to getting to the root of the problem.

One last note, consider this, stress is caused by our personal interpretation of reality and our expectations of how things should be. By opening ourselves up and accepting things as they are and then looking at them from a non-emotional stance, even for a few moments can bring clarity and insight to handling the situation.

Many blessings and Sweet dreams.

Opulent LivingUsing affirmations to change, improve and reprogram our subconscious minds work wonders and do bring about wonderful changes in our lives. The main point about working with affirmations is that you want the wording to work for you. Feelings and emotions behind a thought is what helps the speed at which the desire manifests. Therefore, it is important
that your affirmation sparks those good vibrations, feelings and emotions to get the manifesting ball rolling. For example, some people like lengthy ones and others like shore and sweet. Some like it to rhyme and some like to sing it. Whatever works for you is best. But as you are saying your affirmation you will notice how well they are working by what your dreams reflect you.

Let’s use money as an example. You are needing some money or wanting to add more prosperity to your life so you start using an affirmation: People Love To Give Me Money. And you are saying this all day and night
to yourself and having a great feeling and thinking Wow this is great and then that night you dream a dream that is dark and dreary etc. The dream points out to you that you have a block to receiving money
or that you just don’t believe that people would randomly give you money. Voila! the block is revealed.  Thank yourself for pointing out this subconscious belief. This block can be changed but until you dreamt it you were unaware of this subconscious belief or disbelief and an affirmation will work for you once you change that belief.
In fact, any of us who are not in the flow of money and prosperity have some kind of basic subconscious block to riches and prosperity.

How do you change the blocks? in a word, visualization. I suggest that you take your ‘block’ and I will continue here with prosperity. Get into a meditative state, or just quiet the mind. Now repeat your affirmation
and see, feel and hear the affirmation – use all your senses in a scene that you could conceive and believe happening.
If you cannot conceive the idea and believe it with all your heart then you must use an affirmation that works for you.
Once you find the affirmation that clicks with you and as you change your belief (block) in your subconcious mind your night time dreams may show you how you are progressing or your dreams can also show you when you need to change your goals or when outdated beliefs are blocking your way of real spiritual truths.

Positive money beliefs in dreams can be represented by having gold, silver, money, jewelry, being surrounded by oppulence in your dream backgrounds, luxury, etc

Sweet, Prosperous Dreams!
