Dreams can be very difficult to analyze at times and for the most part people unfortunately forget most of the context in it. Though what happens when we have a vivid dream something that shakes us up, changes out beliefs for good. How do people explain when a deceased loved on has appeared in their dreams.
A dream that is so vivid that you would remember it as if it were yesterday. When this occurs you might realize that your dreams might not just be cognitive junk filtering though your mind at night, but maybe something much deeper.
Unfortunately western society has lost touch with the unconscious or inner self that we give little or no importance to dreams. Spiritual or biblical dreams do occur and happen for a reason, the only thing we need to figure out is for what reason.
Deceased Appearing In Dreams
Dreaming of a loved ones who have passed on is not as uncommon as we think. Usually the time when people are visited by the dead is not to long after they die. These dreams tend to be a lot more lucid and vivid so the dreamer remembers, sometimes displaying a message that is not like a typical dream, a easy way to understand the message. The dead often send us messages though offerings.
We can play devil’s advocate and come up with logical reasons behind these dreams, but we can’t dismiss dreams we can’t explain, something the dead might only know. The dead appear as pure, healthy and full of love in our dreams. They are not as when we last saw them, maybe in a bad state. As if we are a rough copy version here on earth and they are glowing.
Some can hover over your bed as you feel you are awake watching what is going on. A message is given to the dreamer either to say they are gone or something that needs to be fixed. Once this is understood to the dreamer the dead never comes back in that same manner, as if that window is closed for good.
The feeling when you wake up in the morning can be a sense of love and release as if you saw them again. Too many people have recorded these feelings so it would be really hard to dismiss that it could be possible the dead do contact us via sleep.
Naskapi Indian Inner Connection
The native american hold there dreams very close to their heart as they have never forgotten about the “Great One” the understanding of how the spirit moves in our sleep. The native tribe called the Naskapi who live in the remote part of Labrador Canada are desolate and far away from civilization.
These simple people are hunters who live in isolated family groups, so far from one another that they have not been able to evolve tribal customs or collective religious beliefs and ceremonies. In his lifelong solitude the Naskapi tribe tuned into their own inner voices and unconscious revelations for guidance.
Carl Jung the founder of analytical psychology has spoken about the Naskapi as he understood they might hold the key to the truth.
Carl Jung has hand many dreams that where very vivid indicating inner change. He had written about the Naskapi in one of his books, Man and his symbols.
“Those Naskapi who pay attention to their dreams and who try to find their meaning and test their truth can enter into a greater connection with the Great Man”.
He favors such people and sends them more and better dreams. Thus the major obligation of an individual Naskapi is to follow the instructions given by his dreams, and then to give permanent form to their contents in art.
Lies and dishonesty drive the Great Man away from one’s inner realm, whereas generosity and love of one’s neighbors and of animals attract him and give him life.
Dreams give the Naskapi complete objective to find his way in life, not only in the inner world but also in the outer world of nature. They help him to foretell the weather and give him invaluable guidance in his hunting, upon which his life depends.
Just as the Naskapi have noticed that a person who is receptive to the Great Man gets better and more helpful dreams, we could add that the inborn Great Man becomes more real within the receptive person than in those who neglect him. Then a man also becomes a more whole human being.”
To understand dream symbols one must study this forgotten language as it speaks to us as an upside down mirror projecting its message in a metaphoric sense. Who might be speaking to you when you get such a direct message? Is it “God”or is it your “Self” trying to send a message.
Keeping a dream journal handy you will see a pattern unfold as you notice your dreams involuntary become precognitive in nature. Though sorting our regular dreams and precognitive is one thing but what happens when you get a dream so significant you must accept what just took place.
