THIS IS THE LAND OF DREAMS AND FANTASY
Welcome to the land of dreams and fantasy!
Let me welcome you to dreamland my friends!
You are all welcome here, and you can stay here as long as you like, because dreamland is free for everybody that in dreams and fantasy likes to dwell.
You can dream whatever dreams you like in dreamland: sweet dreams, love dreams, good dreams, strange dreams, wild dreams and even nightmares. And perhaps after dreaming your dreams, if you like to tell it, you can even tell us your dreams.
And if you happen to tell us one of your dreams, or if you listen to a dream being told, please remember, that in dreamland nobody can tell whether the dream that we may be telling is the truth as well. Since in dreamland lies may seem truths and truths may seem lies as well; because even I, and I am the dreamer of Dreamland, but even I don't know what's the truth as well. Of course I have dreamed the dream that's true. But it is only a dream and it can not be the truth just because it is a dream; but at the same time it can not be a lie as well, just because what I am telling you, it has really taken place at least inside my mind as well.
So, here I am in my invented dreamland my friend!
Because this it where sometimes I like to dwell nowadays, whether I like to be in it or not makes no difference, because my life style seems to have forced me to be in dreamland for my own reasons.
I don't like to be in this sort of situation, because by nature I am a doer and not a dreamer, so, I would like very much to do some physical work, since that would keep my body fit and my mind occupied, and it would also give me some pleasure when I finish a task, because then, I would feel that I have achieved something worth doing.
Instead I am ruining my health by doing nothing, and perhaps I may be wasting away in the land of dreams and fantasy. But in my forced and hopeless situation I can not do what I want, and therefore, I am forced to dwell in the land of dreams and fantasy, just to keep my mind occupied in the hope that I may keep it healthy. So you'll have to forgive me if sometimes I will sound a bit strange, because in the land of dreams and fantasy everything can feel strange or be strange.
I suppose by now you know, or perhaps you have guessed already that in the land of dreams and fantasy there are no restrictions whatsoever, so, anyone can dream anything, say anything, think of anything and do anything at all; because in the land of dreams there are no man made rules, and one is set completely free of all human acquired restrictions.
Because of this great freedom one can let oneself go wild, and dream or think of anything that one likes; and in doing so a person does not harm anyone or break any man made rules, since it all happens in one's mind.
Therefore, in the land of dreams and fantasy just about everybody may willingly like to dwell, just because one can dream of anything that one wants; but one can not have in real life; and in doing so one may be able to avoid being depressed, since one avoids that despair that otherwise may send one crazy. Therefore, for someone to dream in the land of dreams and fantasy may be said that it is an escape from reality; but at the same time there is no harm done in dreaming, because it becomes an essential escape that serves well all humanity, because somehow this escape is able to help in keeping a balanced mental health, even when these dreams may become plain daydreams.
During the time that I was writing Dreamland, I had many deep soul-searching feelings going through my mind, and under below I have written one of those feelings that I had during that time, so let us hope that you the reader don't find it out of place. But anyhow this is Dreamland and anything can happen in dreamland.
DREAMLAND AND THE MYSTERY OF LIFE
And I feel that life is love, and love is life itself,
And one can not exist without the other.
Therefore if life can not exist without love,
Then I better love, or I may as well be dead.
My dear reader whoever you may be, I want to tell you this since this has happened to me, during the younger part of my life I have heard many times that people fall in love so deeply, and this deep feeling of love may even change the way they behave; but I did not believe it until one day it happened to me, so, let me tell you about me and how I did fall in love for a woman and how the love for this woman changed me; and the realty is that the love for this woman has really changed me completely. Of course I guess that this must have been my destiny, because now I have reason to believe that through this emotional woman's love (and that's all what it was just love emotions and nothing else) God did set me up in such a way that I had to go back to him and serve him. Now if you want to know more about this passion of love without any love happenings you better read all my writings, that is whenever I will be able to write them down, and there I will describe to you how God Almighty has driven me back to him through this woman love in his own mysterious ways.
I have also reason to believe that God is love, and God can be described in a parallel way with my love feelings for this woman, since they may be somehow one and the same thing in nature. So, the description of God will go like this:
And I feel that God is life, and life is God Himself.
And therefore, one can not exist without the other.
So, if we believe in life, we have to believe in God.
And if we don't believe in God, we may as well be dead.
What I have written above is the prologue of the writings below; I have written them to show you what you could find written in this book. In this book I am going to talk about love feelings which usually go through any lovers' mind, and they are not just my own love feelings, as they are just everybody else feeling also, anyhow here I have to go back to my own emotional love feelings for this woman, because they have changed me psychologically, not only they have changed me psychologically and now I believe that people can fall in love; but the love for this woman became at one point like religious beliefs, and I did feel within myself this incredible experience, which could seem to most of us impossible to understand, because I felt that deep within my soul that the love for this woman and the love for God runs in a parallel way, and therefore the love for this woman could and would become religious for me and it would represent the love for God.
So, God has made me dream the impossible love dream, and now I have to try and reach the unreachable stars.
Dreamland is one of the most important parts of my writings, because in a way it contains the real reason why I had to start writing, and therefore, the reason why I ended up by writing this book. Now because of the nature of my writings which in a way are very personal, I have been forced to write Dreamland in an unrealistic way, since this was the only way for me to write my writings without feeling threatened by my own writings, because in dreamland one does not have to explain what really happened, because in Dreamland one does not have to explain what's the truth and what is only fantasy.
There are three main topics in Dreamland.
Topic number one, Dreamland index:
Some explanations about why I had to invent Dreamland;
Some of the reasons why I am forced to live in Dreamland at this time of my life;
The most important dreams of my life and their effect on my life;
My own personal explanation about the dreams that we dream at night;
And what's the reason and why, we all daydream during our lives.
Topic number two, the daydreams:
This is the most important part of my dreamland writings, because it deals with the real psychological reason why I started to write, and then I could not stop writing until I made my writing book
It all started from the daydreams for the love of a woman, which was psychologically and physically caused by the lack of love from another woman, with all its torment and pains from both women; the feeling of being unable to stop loving the second woman even after being rejected by her, or perhaps it would be better if I say that I was never accepted.
The shock when I became aware that I did not know my own self fully, because I was thrown about in confusion from this mighty force of love within me, which overwhelmed me completely;
What did these feelings of love do to me, while they had overwhelmed me completely?
Now, while I was writing about these crazy love feelings I felt (at that time) that perhaps; if I wrote everything down as I felt them, then I could and would be able to regain control over myself. So, I wrote about my crazy love feelings for this special woman, as they lasted at a very high level for about seven years, during that time I was forced to write from the inner force of love most of my love feelings; nowadays my love feelings about this major emotional episode of my life are past, although I feel that I am still in love with this woman my love for her is just at a normal level, but I feel within me that I want to save somehow my love writings, not only to remember her and my feelings of love, but because there is a twist in them as well, as I will explain:
The love for this special woman in a strange way made me go back to God and pray, I had to pray so deeply with all my heart, my soul and my mind, that slowly stage by stage those love feelings for that woman became the love for God since God was the only entity that could help, and therefore, the love for this woman became religious beliefs.
Topic number three in Dreamland, is about religious beliefs;
This is a topic about my own religious beliefs. I believe that one day all religions ought to merge into a single super religion. So what I am writing in these writings here is going to be different from the present normal religious beliefs; because what I am writing here is only an idea, or perhaps you could call it a theory of mine, which in my mind has started to arise from the belief that; if religions were more like the way that I am going to describe them in here, which ideally would be one single super religion, which would be able to embrace all existing religions. Now if that can be achieved, then there would be less friction in the religious world, and therefore the world could be a better place.
I believe that my theory about a super God (or super unique religion) may one day be proven to be right, and perhaps it may even be the real thing.
I believe that there is nothing to suggest that my idea about a super religion is wrong, or the way that I perceive God as a Super-God is wrong: And at the same time, there is nothing that I can use to prove whether my idea about a super religion is right, only time will tell. As we all know, religion is a subject that no one can prove whether is right or wrong, since religion is only a belief, and a belief can only belong to the person that believes it. So, religion is very much like a dream, and because it seem a dream I am going to write the beginning of my religious theory in my Dreamland Writings, since what happens in dreamland has tuned me into a believer. But the real subject about religion will be written in my book called, Prayers of Reconciliations, or perhaps Reconciliation of the Universe.
One may observe and say that everything that I have written in here is just my fantasy: But I can assure you that although it is my fantasy or my friends fantasy, the dept of the feelings of love which are written in this book are real, since I and my friends have felt them with such intensity within our hearts, that they have left a scar into our hearts and they have even changed our behaviour so much that they have forced me to write this book.
The force that has pushed me to write is the force of my unwanted love for this special woman, and therefore there will be a large part of my writings that will make sense only to people which have fallen very deeply in love to a special woman or man.
Love is a dream that makes one believe that in love one would be happy, and love dreams may turn out right for the lover, but sometimes they also turn into nightmares, but whatever a dream turns into it remains a dream, and even life itself sometimes seems a dream. So, that's the reason why, I would like to call my writings Dreamland.
I have dreamed about God also, and I would like to share that dream with you; so, let me tell you the most important dream of my life, since this dream has indeed made some changes to me.
THIS IS THE DREAM THAT IS SLOWLY CHANGING MY LIFE
There are times in our lives when we dream, and we think that our dream is a very special dream. And therefore we think that, that special dream has a special meaning for us. Therefore some of us want to believe in our dreams.
There are people who believe in the Afterlife, so they believe that they will go to Heaven or to Hell when they die, or perhaps they will go somewhere else. There are people that will swear that they have seen the Afterlife, in a dream or in a coma. But no one can prove it to you.
Anyhow I am saying this because I dreamed a special dream and this is what I dreamed that night, the 18th April 1994, which happens to be one of my daughters birthday, and I believe that this dream is a premonition dream.
THE MOST IMPORTANT DREAM OF MY LIFE;
This dream starts like this; I am at the top of a flight of stairs, in a very airy building, which is very much like a large shopping centre; there are a lot of people on this flight of stairs going about their business. But we all seem to be just standing there, nobody seems to move much or be in a hurry to move at all. I happen to be standing near a lady, and we both have intention to go down this flight of stairs, that is whenever the crowd gives us the chance. This lady that I am with seems to be my fiancé, and we are both to get married soon, in the same church I really got married. I am really trying to be nice and sweet to her, and I could not see any reason at all when all of a sudden she left me and everybody else, and somehow she managed to go down the flight of stairs and went away from me.
The dream fades a bit away here, but restarts somewhere else immediately.
And then, there I was floating in the air a few meters above the ground. (There are times when I dream that I am floating above the ground, or above a crowd of people, most times I feel stressed, and I try so hard to fly until I float above and over the people, or above and over my problem, whatever that problem might be). But this time I am floating uphill on a large hillside that resembles a hillside in the country that I came from: there is a small dirt road on this large hillside that will pass in front of the town cemetery on the way to town.
While I am floating, I am making the sign of the cross like when one is praying several times for unknown reasons, it was perhaps that I felt uneasy or in danger: In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and again and again.
With some difficulties I float above and across an unknown bridge. But then the dream changes and, I am entering a church together with the same lady, that lady which I was with when I was at the top of the flight of stairs at the beginning of the dream. (this lady that I am with is supposed to be my wife, but she does not look exactly like my wife, mostly because, her hair style is like the Madonna that we used to carry around town, when there is/was a religious procession.) There are only a few pews in this Church that we have entered, and perhaps a dozen people sitting there. This Church is situated right at the top of a high hill. Its interior looks very ancient and tidy, it is very airy but small; one could say that it is only a Chapel. But the pries there is the best pries one can ever have, because the pries there is God Himself.
I and my lady companion go to sit in a pew, she sits so far away from me, so, I try to sit closer to her and be nice to her, but she gets up and goes away, just as she went away when we were standing on the flight of stairs at the beginning of the dream.
After she left I kept sitting on the same pew in the church, and I was wondering why she had left me so suddenly, then I turned my head around and saw that on this special golden-stone-floor as only the ancient people used to built the Priest appears, or should I say that God Himself appears, or perhaps it is the Holy Spirit that appears to me. He is/was a middle aged man of martial appearance, taller than an average man but not a lot taller, well dressed but His cloths were only normal everyday cloths, I could say that He is the most perfect man that I have ever seen. Suddenly I found myself beside Him and He placed one of His hands on my head, and His other hand on my back, just where my back is usually sore, and then He said: THIS MAN IS A BIT OLD, BUT SO WHAT!! And then again while He was putting a bit more pressure where my back pain usually is: BUT SO WHAT!! (As if whatever the matter was with me, the outcome would make no difference at all). And then He let me go.
So I moved away from Him to go back to my sit, but before I sat down at my sit I turned around, and from where I was I could see Him again on that golden-stone-floor, as He (god) was turning away from us and leaving us. At the same time I became aware that He was carrying in His hand a large hoop as His symbol of power.
The hoop seemed to be about eighty centimetre plus in diameter, and attached to the hoop there were about two dozen little hangers, and on each of these hangers there were several small pieces of material like cloth, He (God) just touched one of those pieces of cloth as to demonstrate: and from the four corners of the church; I heard voices which sounded like, as if all the molecules of air were talking with a single voice, and they were saying: He touches one of these pieces of material, and He knows everything up to the smallest possible existing particle.
Here my dream slowly fades away.
What a shock one can have to dream about meeting God, so, later on when I woke up in the morning I thought; may be I am going to die soon? Perhaps that's the reason why I had this dream about meeting God.
Here I have to tell you a bit more about health; you see, I had been sick for a long time with arthritis, and I had taken so many pain killers and anti inflammatory drugs, and I had also had two cortisone injections in my shoulder in order to release my frozen shoulder. All those drugs that I took during that time, I believe that they had weakened me and also my heart muscle. Now here I am speaking only from my own personal experience of course, but I know for a fact that the anti inflammatory drugs are believed to cause stomach ulcer and other side effect, but I also believe that the heart muscle becomes weaker from the prolonged use of such drugs, because those drugs work by making the blood thinner, and when the blood is thinner the heart works less, and when the heart work less that it should for a very long time it becomes weaker. So, you see, I was sick with arthritis, and I was making myself sicker by taking those drugs for several years. At the time when this happened the doctors did not know or were not sure what were the side effects of those drugs for a long time, so they did not warn you of those dangers. Now let me go back to my illness, there were times when suddenly I would feel weaker and I thought that it was my illness, but now I believe that it was my medicine because it was making my blood thinner, and by doing so it was making my heart weaker, or perhaps my heart was weakening from some other reasons, which I did not know.
During my long illness, I believe that I have also suffered a mild sort of thrombosis; I would like to describe what happened to me and how I felt, when this happened and also how I felt afterward.
One evening when I went to bed I felt rather tired, and because of my arthritis I usually tried to sleep face up and straight, and only with a small pillow under my head, so that my back would lay straight. During one of those nights while I was sleeping in such a position, I felt as if something was laying over me, and it was trying to suffocate me (some people would describe this feeling, as if there was an evil spirit sitting on their tummy and it wanted to suffocate them). Then when I woke up in the morning and tried to get up I could not get up as usual, finally I managed to get up but it was too hard to get up, and I felt terrible. I felt like a zombie, I felt as if the lower part of my brain was asleep and couldn't function properly, and this feeling of being like a zombie was with me for several months, then it slowly started lifting away.
During the time that I felt like a zombie, in the morning it was very hard for me to move normally or do anything in a rush, I felt so bad and lifeless, and for a few months I used to walk around the house or in the backyard, just to get my circulation going in order to feel normal. When I was sitting I would feel as if the chair that I was sitting on was moving from under me, bur really it was not, because it was my head that was shaking instead; at that time I also felt much weaker, although my muscles were sill there, but where was my strength? Anything that I did seemed to be much harder than before, I was short of breath even by just walking, I was really in a bad way, and I did not know what to do to make myself better.
When I went to see the family doctor, he said that he could do no much for me. He said that I had been very sick, and that I was aging much sooner than I should have aged, and for aging there is not much that one can do; so I was stuck with it.
Therefore, when I dreamed about God in the dream which I have written above, the thought that I was going to die was possible. But as the time went by, I started to realise that the dream could not mean that I was going to die; but it could very well mean that God had saved my life. Because God by coming into my dream and doing what He did sowed in me the seed of hope, and also the will to fight back, I did not know how to fight back to regain my health then, and I thought that all I had to do was to wait and see.
Later on, I will try to write and explain myself more about what I think this dream has meant for me.
THE PICTURE BELOW IS SO CUTE AND IT WILL REPRESENT FOR ME HUMANITY WHILE SLEEPING AND DREAMING.
So as you can see from the dream above, I have reasons to believe that we sometimes dream veracious dreams, therefore, I have selected here some of my most meaningful dreams and I have written them in the hope that I may be able to explain them to you and perhaps also to myself as time goes by.
Now, physical personal dreams everybody seems to dream and they are plenty around, and one can find and attach a physical meaning to such dreams, I am not going to try to tell you much about those dreams, because they have an explanation in themselves; but, I am going to tell you about very deep dreams, dreams that seem to come from the other side, if you believe in the other side you know what I mean, as they have a meaning of their own and the dreamer is left wondering what they mean, and also, why they have dreamed those dreams. So, I will come back to these dreams soon.
So now, in order to continue about the same dreaming subject and explain what I thing about dreams and their meanings, I believe that generally there are two types of dreams, which are: the dreams that we dream when we are asleep, and the dreams that we dream when we are awake.
The dreams that we dream when we are asleep can be divided into three types at least:
(1) Shallow dreams that seem body dreams.
(2) Normal mental dreams and deep psychological dreams.
(3) Dreams from the unknown, as the Afterlife world and the cosmic world.
All the dreams that we dream when we are asleep are linked close together, and they can be so close together that it is hard to know when one ends and the other begins, in fact they usually overlap each other a lot. And sometimes also the daydreams can creep into the night dreams.
I will talk about the daydreams later on, but now let us talk about the dreams when we sleep.
Sleeping dreams, Type-one.
These dreams seem to be mostly shallow dreaming, and they are often only a reflection of life that we happen to live at that particular time, and part of these dreams we’ll dream while we are half asleep, and part of them when we are fully asleep; these dreams will usually reflect the happenings of the day before the dream, or something that we have thought that was about to happen, or something that our body needs and the need surfaces in our thought as we sleep.
So in this type of dreams, it is very likely to happen, that if we have had a very busy and confuse day, our dreams will usually show that feeling of confusion, and while we dream of one thing it suddenly changes to something else, and there are times when the very same objects that we have used during the day may come into our dreams, perhaps they will be there only for a split second, or they may be replaced by something else and only the rhythm of the happenings may be present on our dream.
These types of dreams seem to suggest that our mind is sorting out the happenings of the day before, and perhaps filing them in its own way, before our mind can have a real rest.
A second type of these dreams is when we are asleep and our body feels the need for something, then we may very well dream of the desired things: So if we go to bed hungry in our sleep we may dream of food, and perhaps we may try to eat it but usually we would not succeed, so that our hunger remains with us. If we are thirsty we may dream of water, and of fountains and of any other sort of drinks, but somehow we don’t drink and if we do we wonder why it doesn’t quench our thirst; and this is all because our body needs is still present.
If we need to go to the toilet for a piss, we will dream of trying to find a toilet, and we will have all sorts of problems to find a spot to piss, and when we have found one and try to piss we wake up, and find out that we have really to go to the real toilet.
If at night we have a bad digestion or something else that affect our well being, whether we are aware of it or not, we may very likely have a nightmare. Here it seems to me that our mind doesn’t want our body to relax completely, so we have a nightmare in order to keep our circulation going faster that it would normally do if we were asleep, and in doing so we may solve more readily our present physical problem.
So all these types of dreams seem to have a purpose, which is to adjust any difference needed between mind and body while we are asleep. And also our mind needs to dream in order to review those day happenings, and file them in its own way.
I believe that it works very much like this:
For example; if you feel a clean glass with dirty water, and then leave it on the bench overnight: In the morning you will find that most of the impurities in the water are settled at the bottom, and a few that are lighter than water at the top, so most of the water now is clear water.
In a parallel way like the glass of water, while our body rests at night our mind works by settling things down, so during our dreams our mind seems to be looking at the impurities settling down, and our dream are the process of settlement and purification, and when everything has settled our mind then will file them to keep a record and shut them down.
And now I’d like to be excused ahead of time before I say it, because what I am going to say may be considered to be rude, but it is the realty of life and dreams, so it is essential that I say it here. I am talking about those erotic dreams, which are usually brought about from lack of sexual activities while we are awake, so that our libido builds up and it shows up in our dreams. Here our dream is telling us to do something about it, because if we don’t we run an unhealthy risk, the least if which is of perhaps having a wet dream. Other risks are involved also, but they don’t belong in this sort of writings of dream world, and I will talk about them later on if and when I get the chance.
The conclusion for this type of dreams is that: Dreams type-one have something to do with the ever present body needs of the dreamer.
Sleeping dreams, Type-two and three.
All these things together may easily create a problem for our mind, and this problem must be solved somehow, and our mind solves its own problem by dreaming.
The normal mental dreams and the psychological dreams seem to come at the same level of awareness, therefore they can’t be separated easily, as they are both mental and detached from our body needs, so they are hard to explain.
Because of their nature, mankind has been interested for a very long time about their meanings. So, because of these dreams detached nature from our present bodily needs, and the belief about the possibility that our mind could be tuning-in to a different dimension, which is believed to be the cosmic life-force of the whole universe, and our afterlife world, and therefore the land of the dead, where the souls of our ancestor are supposed to be now. Some people believe that our ancestors can communicate to us through these dreams, and they would give us coded messages since they are not allowed to tell us in a straightforward way, and worn us about what’s going to happen next, as they know already everything before it happens.
Because of these beliefs, there are groups of people that have put special meanings in these dreams, and they think that it is possible to foretell some future events from our dreams.
There are in fact so many people that believe in their dreams, and some of them would be worried if they have had a bad dream, as they believe that the dream may have foretold them of an oncoming bad event. These believers of dreams would usually tell their dreams to their special close partners, relative or friends that believe in the same way; and by telling them their dreams, they hope that their friends would be able to help them find what those dreams could mean, but in the end everything remains as confuse as before.
So, let us suppose that the dreams really have a message for the dreamer! Then: What could a certain dream mean to a certain person?
I don’t think that anybody could answer that positively, because the same dream may have a different meaning to a different person. Because the person that is telling the dream has got to take into consideration his own feelings while he is dreaming, because I believe that his/her feelings are the most important part to consider understanding dreams: that is if one wants really to understand dreams. But the feelings of a dreamer can’t be passed on easily, and for this reason it is very hard to understand other people dreams, as they seem to be all over the place and meaningless to the listener. Because each individual has his own way of dreaming, and also of understanding dreams, and therefore he will dream his dreams according to his own beliefs and imagination, and it is for this reasons, that only the dreamer himself is the person that is capable of understanding his own dreams.
There are some rules of course on how to know what your dreams mean: But I haven’t tried to learn and know them properly. So when I speak about the meanings of dreams, I speak only about my own life experience, and a few stories that I have heard around.
However, I believe that there could be some meanings in dreams, because if I dream a certain dream at night, and the day after something happens that seems very similar to my dream, I have to accept that my dream has foretold me the happening; What else can I or you do?
I know that it is only afterward when something has taken place, that we are able to say that what has taken place is very much the same as our dream, and therefore we believe that, that particular dream was meant to foretell us the on coming event.
So, it is events like these that will make us always wonder and ask the questions, whether the dreams that we dream are really there to foretell us the future. And if they are: What could we do about it? Could we find an advantage by knowing the meanings of our dreams?
Perhaps we could.
So, here are a few of the questions that one has to ask oneself in order to understand dreams:
(1) Let us start looking at the dreams that we dream.
(2) Let us ask ourselves what sort of dreams are they.
(3) Let us ask ourselves why we do dream such dreams.
So, what sorts of dreams I generally dream?
Are my dreams happy dreams, or are they sad dreams?
Do I feel secure while I dream, or do I feel threatened?
Are there friendly people with me, or are they hostile?
Can I move freely in my dreams, or I have to struggle to move?
Am I alone in a large open space, or am I in a maze wanting to find my way out?
When a dreadful dream ends, does it end because I wake up from fear? Or does it end because I have somehow overcome the dangerous obstacles and the dream just finishes, and I wake up just because it is time to wake up.
So, we can keep asking ourselves many more questions like these: But in the end we will have only a confused idea about what our dreams could really mean.
But in this sort of dreams, one could also assume that the degree that the dreamer feels in the dreams; of happiness or sadness; of security or threat; of friendliness or hostility, and whatever else one can feel, could really be the way that one feels within oneself in real life. And there are times that the dreamer is aware of it, or becomes aware if he/she reflects about the dreams.
Therefore these dreams can be said to be of a psychological nature, because they deal about our thinking and what we feel within our own mind, whether we are aware of it or not makes no difference, because while we dream our mind reviews and tries to find an acceptable explanation about our feelings and anything else that seems to be our problem.
So, all these sorts of dreams suggest that while we are sleeping our mind is not completely resting: but it is reviewing our life and our past, so that it can adjust our thoughts in such a way that they would make sense to our own mind, in order to file them in its own way.
But there are some dreams that can not be explained as in the above explanation, and they don’t seem to belong neither to the body nor to the mind of the dreamer: But they seem to come from an outside force, which is capable to influence our minds while we are sleeping, perhaps our minds can really listen to messages from the cosmos when we are sleeping, through our own sixth sense; or our subconscious mind could really be tuning-in in a different dimension, since this is the only time when our mind is free and therefore capable of doing it.
For example: Here I want to tell you one of my dreams, that I believe it’s going to show you exactly what I mean. I have dreamed this dream a very long time ago, which is before any other dreams that will follow in my writings. This dream is still kept within my mind because of it’s special message that it conveyed to me, and also because it almost it has proved to me that there is an Afterlife, and that sometimes one of the spirits of our ancestors can really come to us in our dreams, and give us some sort of messages to help us.
This dream of mine is a bit strange, because it seems to be a teaching dream from an ancient spirit, who wants to teach me how to wash dishes in a necessary and special way.
So when I dreamed this dream I was old enough, perhaps in my late forties: but in my dream I was a young lad about twelve, and there was with me this old and wise lady perhaps in her sixties, (This difference in age between me and the old lady would be there in the dream, only to show that I was a newcomer to the world, compared to the old lady that must have been ancient, and that had lived her life long before my time, as she seemed to me very wise.) we were at an ancient and still existing town fountain called La Cavallina, which is a fountain that I have already written about in my writings, in the town where I came from. In my dream, while we were at this fountain, I had with me half a dozen dishes that I had to wash, and then I had to take them home, which would have been the house of my grandma in the old part of the town; the old lady that I was with was instructing me to wash the dishes only under the first spout of the fountain, which is the most upstream spout, and to keep the dishes only in the small bay under the first spout, because that was the only way to have the dishes hygienically clean. So I sure followed her instructions and washed the dishes how and where she said, but in the end somehow a few of my dishes ended up in the second bay of the fountain, and I was very worried, but the old lady said don’t worry: I protested to her and said; but you said to me, that to keep the dishes hygienically clean they must be kept only in the first bay, and now some of my dishes are in the second bay, and they have been contaminated; what can I do? And the old wise lady replayed to me again. Don’t worry just for this time, because when you wake up you’ll know why it is all right just for this time.
The dream ends there, and when I woke up I realized that it was only a dream: Therefore, if the dishes were contaminated it didn’t really matter, just because it was only a dream and it wasn’t real life. But the teaching of how to wash the dishes, in case there was an outbreak of infectious disease was to be learned from this dream.
I believe that the old lady in my dream is the spirit of one of my forbears, and she must have lived during an epidemic of infectious disease, where she had learned that to survive one has to wash dishes and other utensils properly under running water only. So in my dream she wanted to pass her knowledge to me.
I suppose that my dream above is enough for me to make me believe about the afterlife. And the dream makes me believe, that it is possible while we sleep to get in touch with our ancestors through the cosmos. But one has to keep in mind, that one has no power to make it happen, and it can and will only happen, if and when it happens.
Another example: We may dream of something, and when we wake up and start talking to a family member or a friend, they start taking about the same thing that we have dreamed before we start talking about it ourselves. Or perhaps we find that they have dreamed a dream very much like ours. Would it be just a coincidence? Or, is it possible that our minds are able to communicate out thoughts while we are asleep? Even if it is only in a confuse way?
These happenings may suggest that, our minds may have a sixth sense about communication without words, but our minds have no control about these communications, and they happen only if they happen; perhaps when two minds by chance tune on the same wave length. But even this is still a chance that could become possible one day, that is that our minds would be able to communicate with each other, and perhaps one day in the far way future we will learn how to communicate properly.
This sixth sense that we seem to have, in theory could be able to tune in the cosmos, including the afterlife world which is part of it, therefore through this sixth sense it could become possible for passed-away people to give us coded messages in our dreams. I am saying this since lots of people seem to dream about their deceased relatives and friends.
Here I’d like to say something about what some dream could mean, and what one should be looking for, in one wants to understand one’s own dreams.
When we dream of passed away relatives of friends, are they males or females? Do we feel that they want to convey something to us? Do they seem concerned about us, or they seem normal? Is the dream easy or complex? And many other things we should ask ourselves.
Here I would like to say that most people believe that, to dream about a passed away man is a good omen, but a passed away woman is a warning, and the degree of the dream being easy or complex, is the degree that the dreamer may feel if anything happens similar to the dream.
It would be helpful to remember what sort of dreams one dreams, and the people that are in your dreams, whether they bring you happy tidings or warnings. And then keeping them in one’s mind which people bring happy tidings and which may bring warnings, whether they are alive or dead doesn’t make any difference.
During my life I have had lots of dreams of all shapes and forms, and within these dreams there is a very special dream, and I believe that it really is a very special dream for me.
So, I would like to tell you my dream, because I believe that all our dreams help our mind to restore its balance, and this is one of those dreams that covers just about every need that a person needs in a dream, in order to adjust all one’s own needs of the body, mind and soul. And it is perhaps for this reason that I put so much importance in this dream. And there is also another reason why this dream seems very important to me, it is because it has somehow changed my way of thinking, and perhaps my way of living.
Because in this dream I seem to have been mentally in touch with the cosmos, whether I have really been in touch with the cosmos or not it is not possible to prove, and it could turn out to be only all my mind work. But I like very much to believe that in my dream I got really in touch with the cosmos, and really I did reach the highest active life-force of the universe.
Now I would like to talk about the most important dream of my life, and I will try to tell it to you just the same way as I wrote it the first time, together with the feelings that I had when I wrote it.
