A question for Psychic Marin
Mary in Fall River, Massachusetts writes:
I sometimes have visions. I dreamed about people and what I dream happens. I can often tell what’s going to happen before it happens. It’s very scary. I know what people will say before they say it. My gut feeling tells me whether things will work out or not. I don’t know what to do with this ability or how to control it.
Marin’s answer: How to use the dream world to your advantage
The dream world is a strange and fascinating realm. Philosophers and psychologists have hypothesized what the dream world offers us and why it exists. Sometimes dreams can be metaphors for our lives, offering us a different perspective on our daily lives. Often we dream about problems and issues that bother us, and sometimes our dreams can offer us solutions. Have you ever wondered if you can enter the dream world specifically to find a solution to a problem or if you can program your mind before you fall asleep to aid in prophetic dreaming? The answer is yes, you can, and I’ll tell you how.
In order to understand the optimal conditions for dreams and dream recall, it is important that you understand the sleep and activity patterns that the brain performs each night while you sleep. There are two primary stages of sleep: NREM (Non-rapid Eye Movement) and REM (Rapid Eye Movement).
During NREM sleep, the brain goes through slower phases of brain activity and very little dreaming occurs. During this slowdown period, you may feel a sudden pinch or jerk in your body after touching the pillow. You will gradually begin to lose conscious awareness of the external environment and you will relax thoroughly. This stage offers you a little nap and is unlikely to result in a significant dream memory. However, it’s great for an energy boost in the middle of a long day.
REM sleep is the sleep phase that allows for the most memorable dreaming. During this time, the body also experiences a temporary paralysis that will most likely protect one from self-harm by physically re-enacting scenes from the vivid dreams that occur during this phase.
The human body typically goes through a sleep cycle with these phases every two hours. If you sleep the typical eight hours, you have about four opportunities for deep dreams and dream memories.
Everyone dreams, but not everyone remembers their dreams. The most important aspect of working with your dreams is remembering the fine details, which are often forgotten immediately upon awakening from the dream world. Below are tips to help you program your dreams so you can seek information and preserve your dreams to give you the opportunity to analyze them later.
1. Keep a dream journal
Keeping a dream journal is a must for anyone who wants to better understand their dreams. You can either put a piece of paper and a pen next to your bed or opt for a fancy dream journal. I prefer a sheet of paper. When I’m taking notes, my eyes are often still closed, capturing the faint images that would otherwise disappear if I opened my eyes. By keeping my eyes closed and allowing my hand to scribble barely legible notes on a piece of paper, I can gather more detail. Sometimes I can even sketch pictures.
My notes look pretty scattered and meaningless, but it’s amazing what I can remember when I look back at my notes. With certain typefaces, I can instantly recall images associated with the words I’ve written, and the large, messy handwriting has tremendous value. I just can’t get the same results from waking up, sitting up and opening a dream journal while trying to recall images and also trying to write neatly and articulately in a hardcover journal. My notes are dated and kept in a three ring binder. Over time, your doodles won’t look so disorganized. Rather, you begin by creating a sketchbook of dream poetry.
2. Program your mind
Before you go to sleep, program your mind to know what to expect. Tell yourself, “I’m going to have a dream tonight and I’m going to remember it in detail.” Allow the repetition of this chant to put you into NREM sleep as you consciously prepare yourself to receive images and messages from your dream world to keep.
3. Set your topic and ask for advice
As you fall asleep, start thinking about the troubling situation or problem you want help with. Ask your guardians or guides to give you advice in the form of pictures or spoken messages when you are asleep. It may be easier to find a solution when you are dreaming than when you are awake because your conscious mind has the ability to disrupt or criticize suggestions… Also, during times of confusion during the waking hours, emotions are so strong that it can be harder for the mind to hear a faint solution. The dream world eliminates these conscious interventions. It’s easier for you to connect with your guides and less likely to ignore their advice.
4. Set your clock
Your goal here is to wake up in the middle of a dream. Set your alarm to wake you up in the middle of the night. You want to wake up during one of the REM phases of your sleep pattern, as this is your most common time in the dream world. I suggest 3:00 am. Be prepared to wake up very disoriented, but don’t try to regain awareness of your surroundings. Instead, immediately try to remember the images and messages that you received in your dream. Additionally (or alternatively) set your alarm for 20 minutes before you normally wake up in the morning. By scheduling a wake-up time that differs from your usual schedule, you’re more likely to wake up during a REM sleep phase and have a better chance of waking up in the middle of a dream.
5. Mentally capture your dream
Instead of getting up quickly in the morning or in the middle of the night when you wake up, spend a few extra minutes with your eyes closed and think about any lingering images or words that were given to you in your dream. Capture specific scenes, including people, objects, colors, and locations from the dream world, and note any remnants in your memory. Repeat these images over and over in your mind so that they become clearer and do not fade.
6. Write it down
Start journaling as soon as you wake up. You may want to go to the bathroom or drink some water, but this is not the time to get comfortable. You have a specific mission, and that mission is to preserve the few remaining details that, if remembered, could reveal further memories. When you get up to go to the toilet, your consciousness awakens and the dreaming mind disappears, along with all those precious details.
The dream world has a lot to offer
The freethinking Thomas Edison, the American scientist best known for his invention of the phonograph, motion picture camera, and electric light bulb, was a prolific dreamer who relied on programmed dreaming for his designs and inventions. Conscious Dreaming is a tool to channel your ambitions and create an action plan to make them a reality. Nice dreams!
