I had a dream, lasted all night and then continued into the morning. It started off as a kind of upsetting dream and I felt like I was being attacked and judged harshly the entire time.

So once I woke up for the first time this morning I felt bothered and uneasy. Then I thought, “Hold on…lets see where this might go…”

As I went back to sleep the dream continued, and shortly after everything began to unravel. I was only made to be the antagonist in the beginning but as it turned out I was there to help the other person understand the true antagonists were who they’d aligned themselves with.

I was able to see myself and my ability to not only help them but overcome my fears and tap into the most efficient and able form of myself.

Eventually I got them to where they wanted to go while reconciling with them along the way. Letting them know it’s more than okay they go on their way, “But just be careful. Be aware of what you do and what you see as things can change within a blink. And if that happens, remind yourself you can’t always trust what you think.”

 

Now, I’m aware it’s possible to control your dreams and make them play out as you see fit and I do have that ability. But, I like to see what happens on their own. Because I’ve found that controlling my dreams only postpones the lessons I was meant to learn and somehow hinders my progress in life.

It goes back to the long time agenda of avoiding what it is we may not understand in order to save ourselves from having to deal with something that makes us uncomfortable.

In which case all we’re doing is jumping to conclusions. Arrogantly convincing ourselves that we already know the answer to how anything and everything around us will be. As time goes by that image turns into, “This is the way things HAVE to be.”

 

I guess I’d like to inspire those who read this to challenge themselves to trust in what they can’t see, to let dreams open up doors into reality and not make them into an escape from it.

There’s no definitive reasons that we can’t trust something we aren’t able to see. After all, we do it with oxygen all the time. It’s kinda a big part of how we’re able to live.

    1. That’s kinda what influenced this piece too. How it’s so much easier to automatically relate to the bad experiences we’re shown through our subconscious and from there jump to conclusions. Remembering bad dreams isn’t a bad thing it just means that’s the one way your mind knows to make an impact on you in your sleep, I think.

  1. “I guess Iโ€™d like to inspire those who read this to challenge themselves to trust in what they canโ€™t see, to let dreams open up doors into reality and not make them into an escape from it.” Very well put. Many people use sleep as an escape from reality.
