Messages do come in dreams, although sometimes, they may not be messages. Some people go to other dimensions.
Dreams can reveal many things. Are you dreaming in symbols or are they like a movie? Is it the same dream?
Sometimes my dreams help heal a trauma, a past life issue, or reveal something I had forgotten. Other times, I have dreamt of things that will happen in the future.
I personally know of someone who dreamed her daughter showed her cupped hands to her. In her hands she was holding a broken egg. The daughter said, “Mom, my egg is broken!” The very next day, the daughter miscarried.
I keep a dream journal on my night stand. As soon as I wake up, if I remember the dream, I write it down. Journaling assists the waking mind to remember in more detail. It also allows us to go back to the journal and check if we dreamed a future event that has actually occurred.
I don’t check on the meaning of symbols online or in books because I feel each dream is personal, and one symbol might mean something to me, and another to the next person.
Finally, my dreams became more vivid as I progressed in the LifeLeap program. I haven’t mastered lucid dreaming, but I know one day I will.
