The meaning of dreams has drawn plenty of controversy. Some view dreams as our higher self – healing, advising, encouraging, and sometimes warning us of impending dangers. Others view dreams as nothing more than a vision pulled from our memory and shaped by our imagination. Whichever you choose to believe, pay attention to them because this broadened sense of awareness lends itself to multifarious meanings and new possibilities. Dreams are a divine gift that many often take for granted; not realizing that the dream state is actually an expanded state of consciousness. Stephen LaBerge sums dreams up well…not all lucid dreams are useful, but they all have a sense of wonder about them. If you must sleep through a third of your life, why should you sleep through your dreams, too?
