A client shared her dream with me this morning, and the information she was given was thrilling. That made me realize what a need there is for everyone to learn to remember, capture, and interpret their dreams. They are like letters from your guardian angels. You can choose to open them and reap the joy they send, or you can choose to leave them closed and toss them in the waste basket like spam.
Now, what if you were to send me your dream and I helped you–not outright interpreted it–but helped you find the gems of wisdom in them as I did today. What a joy it would give me to see your light bulb of understanding turn on.
I spent seven years studying my dreams and how to interpret them. This was before I even knew about Raphael working with me, but one nightmare changed all that. I dreamed I was in an attic bending a bit because of a slanted wall beside an open stairway. Suddenly from the dark recesses of the attic a large cat-sized rat rushed at me. I grabbed a stick and thrust at it, but it kept coming. I kept shoving the stick to keep it away, but it barred its teeth and kept coming. Finally, I shoved the stick into the rat’s eye and stopped it. I dashed down those stairs to find myself in a large empty car showroom. I kept yelling, “Get out! Get out!”
End of dream.
I tried using a technique I learned from Dusty Bunker in “Dream Cycles.” She said to script our dreams after writing them down exactly as we experienced them in the present tense.
So, I wrote,
“Betty Rae: Rat why are you in my dream? You frightened me.”
“Rat: I represent your fears and they are frightening you.”
“Betty Rae: But why did I shove the stick in your eye. Ewee.”
“Rat: The eye represents your perspective on life. Change that and you lose your fears.”
I mused on that for a bit and then wrote,
“Betty Rae: But why did I find myself in a showroom yelling, “Get out! Get out!”
“Rat: You will be asked to showcase your dreams and “get them out” for others to learn how to interpret their dreams.”
And that has been the truth for many years now. But at that time, as I studied what I had typed into my computer, I realized that profound wisdom had not come from me. Someone else much wiser spoke to me. That was before I realized Raphael was working with me on such a personal level as to help me interpret my dreams and later the dreams of many people.
And so, dear friends–get out your dreams and send them to me. I will be happy to help you interpret them. Write the dream in the space below. I will answer it in my next blog.
