Understanding dreams for ourselves

Welcome to our blog, if you believe in God
and this post, understanding dreams for ourselves
Understanding dreams for ourselves
When we dream, we could dream all sorts of dreams and we can dream things that may not even exist except for the thought that exists in our own minds.
We talk about my dreams and we talk about your dreams and we would like to know what our dreams mean. Would the dreams that we dream be unfulfilled desires, or just plain day dreams, this is one of the questions that comes to our minds.

This is the fountain called, la Cavallina in Genzano di Lucania, this is the fountain that I am talking about in this post. This fountain has seven spouts and the first spout that I am talking about in the dream, is the first spout on the right in this photo.

 Understanding dreams for ourselves
Dear readers, this post is the continuation of our last post, dreamland dreams and beliefs, where we left telling you that it would be useful, if we were able to understand dreams for ourselves. So, let us see what we need to do, if we want to understand our own dreams: so, here are a few of the questions that one has to ask oneself in order to understand dreams:
(1) Let us start looking at the dreams that we dream.
(2) Let us ask ourselves what sort of dreams are they.
(3) Let us ask ourselves why we do dream such dreams.
So, what sorts of dreams I generally dream?
Are my dreams happy dreams, or are they sad dreams?
Do I feel secure while I dream, or do I feel threatened?
Are there friendly people with me, or are they hostile?
Can I move freely in my dreams, or I have to struggle to move?
Am I alone in a large open space, or am I in a maze wanting to find my way out?
When a dreadful dream ends, does it end because I wake up from fear? Or does it end because I have somehow overcome the dangerous obstacles and the dream just finishes, and I wake up just because it is time to wake up.
So, we can keep asking ourselves many more questions like these: But in the end we will have only a confused idea about what our dreams could really mean.
But with any sort of dreams, one should also assume that the degree that the dreamer feels during the dreams; of happiness or sadness; of security or threat; of friendliness or hostility, and whatever else one can feel, because, this could really be the way that one feels within oneself in real life. And there are times that the dreamer is aware of it, or becomes aware if he/she reflects about the dreams.
Therefore, these dreams can be said to be of a psychological nature, because they deal about our thinking and what we feel within our own mind, whether we are aware of it or not makes no difference, because while we dream our mind reviews and tries to find an acceptable explanation about our feelings and anything else that seems to be our problem.
So, all these sorts of dreams suggest that while we are sleeping our mind is not completely resting: but it is reviewing our life and our past, so that it can adjust our thoughts in such a way that they would make sense to our own mind, in order to file them in its own way and be in peace with itself.
But there are some dreams that cannot be explained with the above explanation, and they don’t seem to belong neither to the body nor to the mind of the dreamer: But they seem to come from an outside force, which is capable to influence our minds while we are sleeping, perhaps our minds can really listen to messages from the cosmos when we are sleeping, through our own sixth sense; or our subconscious mind could really be tuning-in in a different dimension, since this is the only time when our mind is free and therefore capable of doing this sort of thing, or could it be our ancestors’ souls as some people believe that are trying to communicate something to us. If you would like to know what we think about this sort of dreaming, you need to look for an answer here-under, where we talk about, Dreams from the other side.
Dreams from the other side
For example: Here I want to tell you one of my dreams, that I believe it’s going to show you exactly what we mean. I have dreamed this dream a very long time ago, which is before any other dreams that will follow in our writings. This dream is still kept within my mind because of its special message that it has conveyed to me, and also because it almost has proved to me that there is an Afterlife, and that sometimes one of the spirits of our ancestors can really come to us in our dreams, and give us some sort of messages to help us.
This dream of mine is a bit strange, because it seems to be a teaching dream from an ancient spirit, who wants to teach me how to wash dishes in a necessary and special way, so that the dishes are as clean as they can be and free of contamination, according to the times when this old spirit lived her life.
So when I dreamed this dream I was old enough, perhaps in my late forties: but in my dream I was a young lad about twelve, and there was with me this old and wise lady perhaps in her sixties, (This difference in age between me and the old lady would be there in the dream, only to show that I was a newcomer to the world, compared to the old lady that must have been ancient, and that had lived her life long before my time, as she seemed to me very wise.) Anyhow, we were at an ancient and still existing fountain in my native town of Genzano, this fountain is called La Cavallina, which is a fountain that I have already written about in our writings somewhere in the town where I came from; The town I came from, this is the link
Anyhow, in my dream, while we were at this fountain, I had with me half a dozen dishes and some cutlery that I had to wash, and then I had to take them back home, which would have been the house of my grandma in the old part of the town; the old lady that I was with was instructing me to wash the dishes only under the first spout of the fountain, which is the most upstream spout, and to keep the dishes and everything else only in the small bay under the first spout, because that was the only way to have the dishes hygienically clean. So I sure followed her instructions and washed the dishes how and where she said, but in the end somehow a few of my dishes ended up in the second bay of the fountain, and I was very worried, but the old lady said don’t worry: I protested to her and said; but you said to me, that to keep the dishes hygienically clean they must be kept only in the first bay, and now some of my dishes are in the second bay, and they have been contaminated; what can I do? And the old wise lady replayed to me again. Don’t worry just for this time, because when you wake up you’ll know why it is all right just for this time.
The dream ends there, and when I woke up I realized that it was only a dream: Therefore, if the dishes were contaminated it didn’t really matter, just because it was only a dream and it wasn’t real life. But the teaching of how to wash the dishes, in case there was an outbreak of infectious disease that could infect people using contaminated food or utensils was to be learned from this dream.
I believe that the old lady in my dream is the spirit of one of my forbears, and she must have lived during an epidemic of infectious disease, where she had learned that to survive one has to wash dishes and other utensils properly under running spring water only. So in my dream she wanted to pass her knowledge to me.
I suppose that my dream above is enough for me to make me believe about the afterlife. And the dream makes me believe, that it is possible while we sleep to get in touch with our ancestors through the cosmos, or whatever there is that can get us in touch with the souls of our ancestors. But one has to keep in mind, that one has no power to make it happen, and it can and will only happen, if and when it happens. It is like coming across something that we have never seen or done before and we have no control over it, or perhaps we could say that it is like tuning in something new, and while we were sleeping we have accidentally tuned in somehow, perhaps this could be one of the reasons of dreaming such dreams. Now let us take a look at this possibility of dreaming and tuning in.
Anyhow this post is becoming too long, so we will talk about dreaming and tuning in in our next post; see you soon.
