Today’s Positive Tip (How to better remember your dreams, Craig answers a question from a student and friend)
Question: I am starting to realize that our dreams tell us a lot and can guide us. My problem is that
lately I don’t remember my dreams as much. Do you have any suggestions?
Craig: That is a trip. I was planning on that being the subject of my next post. I will take this as a sign to post this question and answer right away. This question used to come up quite a bit when I was teaching meditation classes at Wayne County Community College.
My suggestion is first to keep a note pad next to your bed. When you wake up in the morning, don’t let your feet hit the floor. Try to remember your dream first. Write down anything you remember, even if it is only a portion of the dream. If you don’t remember any of the dream at all, then write down how you felt either in the dream or when you first woke up. This must all happen as soon as you wake up. Do this daily. When students would try this, to their surprise they would remember their dreams and come back the next week talking about their dreams.
Questioner: That makes perfect sense.
Craig: Yea, the idea is to not start your day until you pay attention to your dream. That’s why I say don’t let your feet hit the floor until you take the steps I described. Once you get up and start thinking about what you have to do and get into the grove of this waking dream (your daily life) it is too easy to forget about what you experienced while your were asleep.
Today’s Positive Reminder. . . Pay Attention to the divine in you (Craig answers a question on a dream)
Question: I had a dream in which I found myself walking outside of my friend’s house and getting shot. I didn’t just get shot. I got shot a whole bunch of times. What do you think this means?
Craig: Are you still hanging out with that rough crowd here and there?
Questioner: Yea actually I was with them at the time and whenever I have dreams like this, I am always with them.
Craig’s answer: You are being shown a future possibility. The future is not carved out in stone, it often depends on if we go in this direction or that direction as to which future time space event you will find yourself in during this waking experience. You were being shown what will happen if you continue to hang out with that group.
Since you have been meditating you have been being spiritually cleaned up. Your higher self and God within, is working on you, trying to get you to take heed and move in a different direction. You have come a long way already, but now it is time to make the tough choices and move further. Your life depends on it. Do not take this lightly. When your higher self speaks and gives such information in dream, pay attention.
Remember this is only a future possibility, if you shy away from this group, you will not have this experience. You will move into an entirely different future with much more pleasant outcomes.
