What Our Dreams Are Really Trying to Tell Us

When I first started seeing my spirit guides, I was pretty spooked. Imagine, you’re just going through your daily life, walking around, running errands, and this spirit dude dressed in period costume comes into view and starts pointing at an apple like it’s supposed to mean something. Not pretty. I did some researching and requested that my spirit guides come and visit me in my dreams to tell me what’s what. It was a way for me to hear them out without feeling overwhelmed or scared. And it worked!

MESSAGES IN OUR DREAMS

These days, I can handle seeing spirit guides no matter where or what they’re doing. It’s no biggie, but back then, hearing them out in my dreams was what worked. Luckily, they brought me lots of messages—usually in the form of symbols or cryptic messages. Outright saying stuff isn’t their style. Usually, when we’re distracted or fuzzy-headed, messages can’t come through during our daily lives. Instead, they come through our dreams. Sometimes it’s our mind just working things out, and other times it's our spirit guides trying to get a message across. If you want to spot the difference, read on for more.

COMMON SYMBOLIC DREAMS

Ever have that dream where your teeth fall out? It’s some strange symbolism, but it could do with the fact that your feeling stressed about a significant change. How about that dream where you’re naked and making a speech to your entire high school. Oh, and you’re completely blanking on your speech. That kind of dream stems from anxious thoughts or feeling insecure about some area in your life.

DREAMS vs MESSAGES: HOW TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE

These are different from the kinds of dreams you get from your spirit guides. How about that one dream that you can’t shake? The one that feels all too vivid and sticks with you. It’s the one that feels less like a fantasy and almost a little too real. That’s a dream from a spirit guide. Spirit guides often take us on journeys. Let’s say you have to heal from past trauma, call upon your spirit guide to help you through it, and watch your dreams unfold. They can give you insight from a past life. If you’ve ever had a dream that’s in another time or era, this could be a spirit guide trying to show you some symbolism or a way through your problems. Cool, huh?

Next time you want some answers while you're sleeping, talk to your spirit guides before you fall asleep. They might bring you all the right answers as you drift off for the night.
