Today’s Positive Reminder and Dream interpretation (All the answers are within and can be accessed)
I saw two people about to enter a house. One of the people had problems they wanted addressed and the other had led the first to the house to solve the problem. Next, I saw the same thing happen a total of four times with different problems that needed solving. Then, I came out of the dream. At some point, I am not sure if it was during the dream or right afterwards, I was wondering “why am I seeing this?” At the same time I knew that all four were related and was trying to understand how. I felt a knowing that all four situations were being taken to a higher place within, to be taken care of and transformed. In my mind it was telling me that I must go to a higher place within and all my concerns will be taken care of.
Then I got up and opened up couple of books randomly to pages. Each one was talking about how we have a higher place within that has answers to all problems and situations. This motivated me to meditate to handle all my situations, many of which I was talking to God and the Universe about earlier the previous day. I also had only given myself 20 minutes to meditate because I had to get ready for my day. I soon began to get ideas and answers in meditation.
When I meditated I expected to get answers, but still had to remind myself to let go of any problems. Some of these answers I already knew but I felt much better about the solution. At certain points when I got answers on a deeper level, I would get jolts or boosts taking me into deeper feelings of bliss or ecstasy. Then I came out energized, convinced once again that going within can handle all my situations in life.
Note: The answers to all problems are within. If we can meditate and let go while expecting the answers to come we can see things much more clearly. Our dreams are always trying to tell us something. If we can remember this and be open to being led to those answers, the dream will be quite revealing.

Today’s Positive Thought (When you truly get the lesson you will be one with the father in Heaven even while here on earth)
Today I would like to share a dream I had during a time of struggle. I was with one of my crews out working and we were on a roof and somehow I discovered I was way too high up. I thought to myself “I own a gutter and window service, I am an expert, I don’t get myself into situations like this, what am I doing here?” Somehow I knew I was dreaming, and decided I needed to come out of this dream. So I did. When I woke up, I knew that my dream was relating to my waking life, or better yet, this waking dream that I am now in. I decided “now is the time for some answers.” I was going through a rough time in my business life and right in the midst of all of that, I found myself seemingly out of the blue, beginning to have problems in my marriage. I felt the same way I did on that roof except I knew that the answer was not to exit the dream and escape.
In my business life it was a tough year. We got cut off right in the middle of our busy season and winter came early, making it very difficult to complete our jobs. We had a couple hundred customers waiting on account of bad weather. I felt like everyone was rushing us, and some customers were upset. With my wife, I did not know what was going on. She seemed to be angry at times out of the blue. The funny thing is I thought I knew how to handle both things, but in the back of my head, I knew that I did not quite get it yet, because I did not feel extremely good magically in touch with the Universe. I had learned over the years that when I really get it, I suddenly feel incredibly good and can barely feel my body. I feel like I am at one with everything and everyone.
As I laid there in the bed, thinking about my situations and my dream, I found myself once again talking to my teacher in my mind and doing a quick mini meditation. Suddenly, I heard his voice in my head saying “if someone gives you a quarter and you don’t accept it, who has the quarter?” “Do your best and leave the rest,” and a whole host of other things. I could hear the inner sound (Aum vibration)ringing loudly, I could barely feel my body, I felt so blissful and happy, I can’t truly describe it. I said to myself now I truly get it.
The funny thing was, I had gotten all of these ideas and thoughts before about both situations, but I had not truly gotten the lesson until that moment. I intellectually got it, but did not feel it in my soul in either situation, until then. In that moment when I really got the lesson, it was as though the same information I got before was now coming from on high, and I could see it so clearly. When I became centered and truly got it, I was in my heavenly state of mind once again and there was no question in my mind whether things were going to work out. As I look back, although there were many instructions and actions to take, the main thing was to trust the inner guide and get centered.
Today’s Positive Poetry (About This Dream)
Remind yourself that it is no coincidence you are having this dream.
Tell yourself that when you can see it clearly you will be in a better place
With better ways of functioning, higher ways of being, even more enjoyable life
Meditate and repeat your mantra
Ask the Universe for hints and clues
Don’t be afraid to look for a sign
If you don’t see one at first, don’t be worried
Tell yourself it is on its way
When the answer comes do not be offended
Remind yourself this is the way to a whole new life
And remember this life we live is also a dream
Question for Craig (“I have prophetic visions and dreams but I never see positive in any of them”)
Question: Ever sense I was young I have had visions. Sometimes they come in the form of dreams. These visions will be of things that are about to happen. Sometimes they will be direct and sometimes they will be symbolic. They always prove to be true and be of a negative nature. I also get intuitions of the same nature. It may be about some harm coming to someone I know or even someone dying. I don’t know why I never see anything positive. My visions are always negative. Why is this?
Craig: First I should say that if you are having visions of things to come and feelings that let you know certain events are about to happen this is a good thing and a gift. Unlike many, you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that there is much more to this world than what we see in the physical. You know this due to your experiences with your visions and intuitions. The problem occurs when you do not have a philosophy of life and tools that are as advanced as your gift, it can cause worry and turmoil in your world. It will also lead to fear of your gift of inner sight and awareness.
If you understood that you are in Heaven, and everything that happens is happening to bring you to a deeper understanding of that fact that you are one with God and the Universe in Heaven, you would see things much differently. For one, you would attract visions and intuitions to further substantiate that outlook in the way of visions of good things to come. In addition to this, even if you would see something on the horizon that you did not want to occur, you would be asking God and the Universe to show you more, reminding yourself that this is about your growth to a better understanding of your oneness with God and The Universe. This feeling would allow you to see God’s harmony in the various possible outcomes. I say possible outcomes, because you will also know that your world is being created based on your understanding of your lessons at hand and your vision is one of many possibilities you can enter. If you learn and practice a higher form of meditation, you will find your outlook and visions changing on their own. It also helps to have someone you can talk to who knows the territory and can help you to better understand your visions and meditations along the way. Feel free to contact me any time if you have any more questions.
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.
Take care of today and tomorrow will take care of itself
This morning I awakened from a dream. I did not like what I saw while I was sleeping. I went back to sleep and to my surprise, there it was again. I was back in the same tormenting dream. I found myself asking, why did I have this dream? Why were my friends acting in this manner? I could not come up with an answer, but somehow I knew there was one waiting. Then just before getting up, it seemed to come out of nowhere, visions from the night before in my waking life. I had an opportunity to be supportive to someone and I failed to act. It seemed like such a small thing at the time, but now upon review I see, I truly failed to act. I could have been more supportive.
At first I was ashamed. I saw myself in negative light. Then I remembered my lesson and things were so clear. Take care of today fully, and tomorrow will take care of itself. It seemed to be the new theme for my new life and everywhere I go. Sure it is a simple lesson, but it runs quite deep. If I would have taken care to act in the moment even in what seemed like a small situation at the time, I would not have had the unpleasant dream over and over that symbolized the outcome of such situations.
So what else do I take from this? One thing is that we are highly connected to God and the universe. One of those ways is through our dreams. They can tell us so much if we are open to getting the lesson. Second is to make haste while the sun is still shining. Be the person who you are meant to be today and act as you know you should act in each moment. If you can do this, life will be beautiful.
A Dream of Now and Now’s to Come
I had a dream of sorts the other morning. I guess you could call it a day-dream because I was awake, and then suddenly I had this dream. I was even awake during the dream and thinking about what it meant as I was having it.
In the dream I saw someone who had made their transition. As I was watching I was being told that he should be dressed well because sometimes the soul will get up and function right after passing and will be clothed as he was clothed in life. Then I saw him living out a similar life in a different dimension. I was reminded of how my teacher Mr. Ambritster would say “where you go in the hereafter, depends on what you go hereafter.”
For some time afterwards, this was all I could think about. I did not think about it in the same sense of the dream alone. I thought about how that happens right here right now. However you want to be in the future, you need to be that way right now. You want to be a writer, be one now. You want to be a preacher, be one now, and improve accordingly. Wherever you want to be you should be functioning in that arena in some way, on whatever level you can start on right now and you will automatically be there in the future. This is karma 101. What you put out comes back, 10 fold, 20 fold or 100 fold, depending on how much you move into to that place, now, and the now’s to come.
