TODAY THE WORDS are DREAM ALERTS. Most of us, if not all of us, have at one time or another, been awakened from a dream and we open our eyes wide open and think, “What was the meaning of this dream?” Right? We find ourselves in old homes, barns, buildings filled with items we have never seen before or which we can’t remember seeing before and it confuses us with its contents. We climb up stairs which are rickety and almost impossible to climb. We slide our cars or our bodies in mucky mud and find ourselves trapped and sweating to find an escape from this horrible event or at least wake up. There are people who proclaim to interpret dreams; I am not sure they get it right, but who is to know for sure the meaning of dreams. People have said they dreamed of winning the lottery, invented the perfect gadget, became famous; or on the other hand, dreamed of dying, losing everything, or found themselves lost or hurt. Dreams may be a sign or they may be only dreams. Here are my thoughts on dreams….Dreams, especially recurring dreams, may be alerts as our subconscious minds produce dreams during the REM when our minds are more alert and we experience rapid eye movement (almost as if we are awake in our minds, but our bodies are asleep.)
This has led me to believe dreams do come from our thoughts; these thoughts may have been from experiences we have logged into our memories or we have viewed by reading, viewing, and watching events. When we dream, our mind rearranges these memories into a “video” some of which are real and some of which come from the outside influences. When we have a dream which is alarming; it may awake some fear we have imbedded into our minds, consciously or subconsciously. If we can remember our dreams and think if this was actually reality; how would I react? During the biblical times, Men of God were given dreams as future prophesy. What is to say, God is relaying messages or “alarms” in our quiet time and it might be beneficial for us to encourage thoughts which come from the night’s videos playing in our heads. Look how powerful the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. when he said, “I have a dream” and maybe, just maybe, he had been given that dream in his sleep.
