Have you ever wondered why we dream?, What do dreams mean?,Why do we dream of people we hardly know, but yet seem to see them in a dream. The one dreams that really boggles my mind is one that just doesn’t make any sense at all like, being in a place you never lived before,in a town u never seen,or seeing your ex wife there talking to you like all is fine, and your still married, then all of a sudden end up somewhere else with alot of people that you don’t even know..Maybe it’s just me, or my dreams. but if you ever had any of these types of dreams, then you know where I’m coming from. I truly believe that God has given us the gift to dream to keep or relive memories of lost loved ones, often I dream of my family or friends that have past on. I dream of them being around me, laughing hugging, enjoying a beer.
I have dreamed often of my dad,or brother David who has been gone for years now, and there they are smiling a t me. I am all grown up. my brother died when I was 16 and my father a few years back. anyways. I would see my brother hanging out, just the way he used to be, and I would go up to him and hug him, cry and didn’t care how he was there or why,just that I was so glad to see him, and he would look at me and tell me..”I am fine brother, just wanted to see how your doing is all” then he was gone. I would wake with tears in my eyes and truly believe that God allowed me to see him.because he knew I needed that comfort or cry.I often dream of my daughters, they are grown now but I see them small when they were young, and we would have fun together. these are good dreams, dreams that I believe we need.
Our mind never stops working, it’s like a video recording the days events and sticking them in a harddrive in your brain somewhere so it can show it to you when your asleep, but what happens is that all that gets turned around and your dreaming of things that happened that day, but yet somehow, it’s like your mind drifts off somewhere else, and there are people or people or places you haven’t seen in years, and there you are..don’t make any sense at all.
for example: I once had a dream of a freind who I haven’t seen in over 25 years, there we are having a good time catching up with the old, then when I awake, I wonder, why I had that dream of that friend, well 3 days later I ran into him in Santa Barbara, and couldn’t believe it was him, he was older, as I was to him I’m sure, but It was weird how he just popped up out of know where, and there he was..I told him about the dream and we just were glad to see each other.
I truly believe God uses dreams to speak to us while we sleep, our bodies are asleep, subconsciously we are asleep but our minds are awake, so God when he has a message to send to us, he plays it in video.He may be warning us about danger that is coming or of a friend or family member that may be in trouble, for what ever the reason this one of his ways of talking to us.
So if you find yourself dreaming a dream that doesn’t make any sense, your not alone, and hopefully you will find yourself dreaming of good things like family and friends. I find a good dream makes one have a better tomorrow bad dreams,we all get them..just have to get by till the good one comes along.
