Have you seen that movie where this guy was about to drive across a crowded bridge, and then right at the last minute,Â got a wierd feeling andÂ decided against it? Unfortunately for the people on the bridge, it collapsed. But becuase theÂ main character was able to listen to his intuition, he was saved. Have you ever had a feeling, that something was going to happen, and sure enough, it happened?Â Wonder why it comes sometimes, and doesn’t come other times? Your intuition is like a muscle. If you don’t exercise it, it will become weak. Unfortunately most people haven’t been taught how to use your intuition so you can use it to protect yourself from bad things in the future.
The best way is to listen to your dreams. If you haven’t read my article on remembering your dreams, or the follow up article on using them to easilyÂ release unwanted emotions, you might want to head over and check them out whenever you find the time.
The second kind of dream (after the release dream) is the warning dream. This dream is alerting you to possible danger in the future. Now there are two ways you can look at this. One is metaphysical, and one isÂ based purelyÂ on science and biology. Both seem to make sense, so you can choose whichever one you feel most comfortable with.
The metaphysical explanation is that we all are connected to a Superconscious, andÂ It (orÂ She or He)Â knows all that ever wasÂ and ever will be.Â Many call this God,Â some call itÂ Infinite Intelligence.Â When we dream, our minds somehow merge with this and are able to collect information that may help us.
The physical biological explanation can be just as valid. The brain is a fantastic supercomputer whose operational methods are still barely understood by science.Â As you move through life, your brain is remembering everything you come across. And while you sleep,Â your brain looks forward, based on your plans and your previous history, and then alerts you (or tries)Â to any dangers that might come up.
A personalÂ exampleÂ is something that happened to meÂ last year. I kept having images of Magic Johnson pulling hisÂ hamstringÂ during the Lakers-Pistons championshipÂ game. I didn’t pay muchÂ attention, and a week later I was playing with some kids.Â Of course, I pulled my hamstring. Now whether that was a superconcious message or my brilliantÂ neurology looking ahead and warning me (I already knew I would be playing with that specific group of kids,) the message was clear: Stretch before you run, and be careful. Of course when I see kids, I immediately get really excited, and I seem to forget about being an adult. I’m sure you know what that’s like, right? All you want to do is play and have fun? Of course I would have had a lot more fun had I listened to my dreams.
The simple way to do this, is after you’ve become proficient at being able to remember your dreams, and you are spending a couple extra minutes checking to see if you can release unwanted emotions,Â is to pay attention to any images that you don’t understand. Look for actions or events that you don’t remember, or situations that you can’t recall. And keep those in mind for the next few days, and pay close attention to things in your daily life that cause you to remember those images.
Once you easily begin to remember and pay attention to your dreams, they can serve you as a valuable guide in your daily life, not only making sure that you stay clear of danger,Â but as you’ve already learned, to release stress and anxiety as well.
