Question for Craig (is it true that when you dream you are all the players in the dream?)

Hey Craig,

Dream About Me

Someone told me that when you dream, you are all of the players in your dream.

Is there some type of truth to this?

Yes there is quite a bit of truth to this.  There may be one particular player in the dream who you identify with.  There may also be other players in the dream that may represent certain people in your life.  Or the other players may be there to play parts to tell you more about yourself as they interact with the main player you identify with.  But whether you realize it or not, the whole dream is created by you, all the players are your creation, the atmosphere and background, all your creation.  They are all created by you and would not be there unless you on some level intended for them to be there.   And it can also be said that all the players are you.

We create the dreams and all the participants to get a lesson.  The lesson may be that we need to run our business in a new innovative way, or that we need to be more at peace with our place in life at this time.  The lesson may be telling us it is time to take a chance and act or to treat people with more kindness.  But be assured it is us creating the dream, giving ourselves hints and opportunities to grow more into our realization of our oneness of the fact that we are one with the great dreamer.  This can also be said of our waking dream or this life.

    I find this to be so true. I once went to a Unity church with a reverend who taught that a lot of parablesin the bible have people who represetn different aspects of our personalities. I find that this can add another level of learning to lots of writings and our dreams. Thanks for reminding me thought, I haven’t looked it my dreams that way for quite a while. 🙂

      That is an excellent parallel you gave and a big part of what I was trying to convey, the fact in dream and even in life we have to be able to realize that even those challenging personalities we come up against may be found in us under certain pressures and situations. When we can see this we can deal with the other party in a better way. Thank you for reading and the great comment.

      Thank you for reading and commenting. This post started out as an answer to a meditation students question. I was on the fence as to whether it would be helpful to other people. Your comment lets me know that I did the right thing by posting.
