Listen To Your Dreams And Improve Your Life

To some people, a dream is just a dream. They think that dreams occur regularly and have no meaning at all. Some people even believe that they don’t ever have dreams period! The truth is, a dream is your conscious talking to you. It is your mind’s way of acting out your inner-most desires.

Learning how to harness the information that your mind is giving you in a dream can be very beneficial to a lot of different aspects of your life. In this post from Dreamers United, Stephan Schumann talks about how he uses his lucid dreams to heal his body and soul.

“Our soul knows about health. When a part of the body, soul and spirit totality becomes unbalanced or when we have made a decision that could cause damage to us or others, this is revealed to us in our dreams. An imbalance that has existed for a long time, e.g., due to an unhealthy way of life or unresolved conflicts, can lead to somatic illness. A signal of our body – pain is the voice of the body – can provide an opportunity to return to oneself and to check if possibly a change is necessary. If we alter our habits, our dreams change, too. Actively occupying ourselves with our dreams will positively influence our health, family, relationships, professional, financial and mental/spiritual development substantially. Why? If we are honest and truly follow our life’s way, the soul gets to be ever stronger and more radiant. With time, we will discard all the old robes, patterns and convictions and come to experience the best that is in us. Dreams know the answer. They are healing for the soul.”

Next time you are dreaming, even if you do not become lucid in your dream, try to pay attention to the messages that your conscious is trying to give you. For example, in one of my dreams, I was smoking a cigarette, and blew out dark black smoke. Since that dream, I stopped smoking! I actually quit the very next day (It took a little bit to decode the message). I realized that the black smoke was my conscious showing me exactly what I am doing to my lungs every time I smoke!

5 Ways To Tell A Dream From Reality

I’m sure that you’ve had a dream or two where you thought to yourself… “Am I Dreaming?” What do you think would happen if you realized that you were indeed dreaming? Would you be able to control your dreams?

Dr. Stephen LaBerge asked himself this same question. While he studied dreaming at Stanford University, he conducted many experiments to support the fact that a dream can be controlled, as long as the person dreaming recognizes the difference from reality and a dream.

Dr. LaBerge came up with a great way to tell a dream from reality. Whenever he thought that he could be dreaming, he would do a reality check. A reality check will tell yourself whether or not you are dreaming, by noticing things that are not real in a dream world!Next time you think you are dreaming, do one of the following reality checks. Different reality checks work for different people, so don’t get bent out of shape if the first one you try doesn’t work!

  • The Hand Reality Check

This is the reality check that has worked the best for me. Whenever you think you are dreaming, take a look at your hands. Most of the time, in a dream, your hands will look completely different than they really do. In my dreams, sometimes my hands are super big, or they have 6 fingers! Sometimes, they are really small, or they have 5 fingers! Sometimes, they don’t even look like hands at all (I had dog paws once- weird)

  • The Nose Squeezer

This check has worked for me a few times, but I usually forget to do this one. Next time you believe you might be dreaming, try to plug your nose by squeezing on both sides of it. In reality, you will not be able to blow out. In a dream, most of the time, you will have no problem blowing out!

  • The Thirteen Hour Clock

For some reason, a clock always ends up in my dreams. It might be our internal alarm clock that everyone always speaks of, but I’m not sure of the real reason there is always a clock. Next time you are in a dream, try to look at a clock. In my experiences, sometimes there are thirteen numbers instead of twelve! Occasionally, there will be more hands on the clock too! If you look at the clock, and it looks un-real, it probably isn’t! You are dreaming!

  • Run For Lucidity!

If you have ever tried to run in a dream, you have probably noticed that you feel really sluggish. It feels like you are moving as slow as a slug, and you cant get your legs to move any faster! This is a great way to tell a dream from reality! In a real world, you would be able to run as any other normal person! The best part is, once you realize you are dreaming because you cant run, you can become lucid and start to fly! Who needs to run, when you can fly wherever you want to go?

  • The Blurry Sign

For some reason, if you try to read signs in a dream, they will be blurry. The words may move, or change right before your eyes! Pay attention to this, because it can be your ticket to lucidity! In reality, signs don’t usually have blurry, or moving words, and they definitely wont change before your eyes (unless its one of those flashy billboards).

If you want to start to train yourself to do reality checks, just do them randomly during the day, even if you know for a fact that you aren’t dreaming. If you train your mind to check for a dream while in reality, it will remember to check for reality during a dream! Throughout the day, randomly look at your hands and say “Am I Dreaming?” You can also buy a watch with the hands (not a digital one), and look at it regularly through the day. Once you become used to doing reality checks, they will become natural, even in a dream world!

The moment that you do your reality check, and you realize that you are in fact dreaming, your body will be filled with excitement! Colors will become very bright, sounds will become very crisp, and you will see everything with perfect clarity! At this point, you have a whole world, inside of your own mind, that you can explore! You can use your dream to fly, talk to that lady or guy that you have been crushing on, and even walk through walls!
