Are There Different Types of Dreams?
There are many types of dreams. Physical dreams are the result of outside physical influences, such as a police siren or a cold rain you were caught in earlier or a spicy meatball sandwich.
Most of our dreams are subconscious dreams. These are often problem alerting or problem solving and are generally symbolic and require personal interpretation. Most of our dreams fall into this category.
What is important to acknowledge is that a dream is part of our individual attachment to the Divine. Native Americans believe the Great Spirit delivers visions to the dreamer that inspire and guide the soul. One might consider dreams to be a healthy and natural GPS tracking system that Creation has given us to help us reach our fullest potential. Like so many aspects of life, dreams and visions are gifts; we have the choice of declining or accepting these and of determining how we will or if we will utilize them.
When we consciously recognize a dream and interpret the meaning we often develop a more complete understanding of ourselves. Dreams can direct us to our true feelings about any aspect of life, from work to love and anything in between. They can warn us of illness or danger or they can move us in directions we may not have had the courage to explore.
