They are basically two categories of Dreams. Day(waking) Dreams and Nocturnal (sleeping)Dreams. Whilst we mostly acknowledge control over our Day Dreams or so we think. Which is a discussion in itself.
The question here has to do with sleeping dreams.
Many will gladly concede that they have a little or no control over our Nocturnal dreams. That they come unbidden and has nothing or little to do with waking life...while others will and often do disagree.
Some people make a living out of understanding and interpreting as to whether or not it has to do with future events predictive or prophetic and whether it has to do with inner personality as in Psychoanalysis Past events that are exerting undue influence over you.

What's your opinion on sleeping dreams ?
Do they provide an opportunity for us or not?

Come let us reason together and perchance learn from each other.


Hi @frankster ... :wave: :wave: :wave:

I often say, I do not dream dreams to remember - sleeping dreams.

I'm sure I probably dream, but more often than not, I wake up not remembering anything I dreamt about. Just peaceful sound sleep is all I remember.

The notable exceptions to this, are as follows :

1. When I have a scary dream! :eeek:

Whew, I can't wake up fast enough! Oftentimes, in the midst of it, I don't know I'm dreaming. It's so real and I wake up thanking God it was only a dream. When this happens, the few times it has, I ask God not to let me have anymore bad dreams. If I wake up before it's time, I will go back to sleep praying that I do not have another bad dream, and I don't. Depending on how scarey it was, I may ask every night not to have a bad dream, and I don't - until I forget about it and don't ask anymore.

2. When my Mother joins me in my dreams ... :yaay: :yaay: :yaay:

I've asked God many times, more times than I can count, to let my Mother join me in my dreams. I've only had the pleasure a few times. It's so real and so wonderful and so great. Even though I've asked it often, I don't get it often. So much so, that I don't hardly ask anymore. I used to ask all the time. I even wrote a poem about it - Oh Dear God

As it relates to those that say they can interpret dreams, I say have at it. I don't know if what they are saying is true or not. Personally, I don't engage in such. I think there is a part of me that resists such things, people interpreting my dreams, the level of vulnerability required. Why are they more able to interpret my dream, than I am? Is not the same energies that gave me the dream, able to guide me regarding it? They did not even see the dream! :) ... yeah, I'm reluctant, but for all those that have confidence in it, have seen positive results, etc., carry on.

Do dreams provide an opportunity? To be with my Mother again, yes. Is that what you mean? Please tell me more.

The phrase - I don't dream dreams to remember, I get from this song :

Otis Redding : I Got Dreams To Remember



Much Love and Peace.

frankster: is not Asking a request and a request a command.

I'm not getting into what or how you use your words. I would be careful because words is what traps us by our own actions. [[ Thoughts become words. Words turn into doing. Then doing it builds your world]]
An example what the brainwashing by spells can do when some think like..." its only a word" The last part of the phrase "doing builds ___. I say worlds.
It is not my intent to play with words...but as freeing as word are they do have there limitations and in order to get beyond that we must choose them with precision....arriving
at Meaning

By being conscious of the god in you. The awareness of your Divinity allows the dreams to manifest.
What exactly do we mean by "Conscious of God in YOU"?
I can say I know that that is True and I know it is ...but does that equate to me "Being Conscious of God".
Is the "Knowing Of something" the same as Consciousness of Being"IT"?

How do I/We become Aware of My/Our Divinity....?

It is Said ...that we dream every night.
That we tend not to remember is also true..are they worth remembering?

A peaceful night sleep is a thing of Value.

Scary dreams, like scares in live tend to stick with us.
Scares in life are teaching moments...is there any meaningful take-aways from such dreams that you have experience?

2. When my Mother joins me in my dreams ... :yaay: :yaay: :yaay:

I've asked God many times, more times than I can count, to let my Mother join me in my dreams. I've only had the pleasure a few times. It's so real and so wonderful and so great. Even though I've asked it often, I don't get it often. So much so, that I don't hardly ask anymore. I used to ask all the time. I even wrote a poem about it - Oh Dear God
I can only imagine the joy full days that followed such an occurrence....the carry-over effect must have been invigorating and uplifting to your body and soul.
Asking is Substances of Fulfillment....as with all skills it takes practice and commitment.


As it relates to those that say they can interpret dreams, I say have at it. I don't know if what they are saying is true or not. Personally, I don't engage in such. I think there is a part of me that resists such things, people interpreting my dreams, the level of vulnerability required. Why are they more able to interpret my dream, than I am?

Can't argue with pure logics.
But consider this ; some individuals have spent a lifetime studying dreams and there predictive qualities.


Do dreams provide an opportunity? To be with my Mother again, yes. Is that what you mean? Please tell me more.
I would not be so bold as to promise that....but I have read of dream techniques used to create specific dream content and story.

A candy-colored clown they call the sandman
Tiptoes to my room every night
Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper
Go to sleep, everything is alright
I close my eyes then I drift away
Into the magic night, I softly say
A silent prayer like dreamers do
Then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you
In dreams I walk with you
In dreams I talk to you
In dreams you're mine all of the time
We're together in dreams, in dreams
But just before the dawn
I awake and find you gone
I can't help it
I can't help it
If I cry
I remember that you said goodbye
It's too bad that all these things
Can only happen in my dreams
Only in dreams
In beautiful dreams

Character!!! You and I have been created to build great things. Building character is simply to distract you. I am not saying we don't grow long in character, stature, etc.
