Do you ever wake up from a dream that felt so vivid, so real, and so powerful?
Do you ever feel like it was trying to tell you something - a message from your soul?
Have you ever experienced a dream that turned out to be a premonition?
There are all kinds of dreams - some are merely a processing of the previous day's events - strewn together in a fun way that only our subconscious can do. And some are more meaningful - these are the ones that you can't seem to shake from your mind when you wake up. They are so vivid and keep coming back to you throughout the day.

These are the dreams that I would suggest you pay close attention to. I believe that these dreams are your soul's way of communicating what we need to be focusing on. These are messages directly from your soul - maybe giving you clarity on a path to take, a relationship to either end or begin, or giving us direction for our life's purpose.

You'll know this kind of dream when it happens.
You'll feel it beckoning you to pay attention
and to go within to decipher the message.

You may want to start a dream journal. Before you go to sleep at night, tell yourself that you're going to remember your dreams when you wake up. Then before you even get out of bed in the morning, grab your journal and pen and start writing. You'll be amazed at how much you can remember on most mornings. And if nothing comes to you, that's okay, too. You can still take that time to write - enjoy this moment when you are still in a half asleep state - when maybe your ego is still sleeping and you can really get to the heart of your emotions without censoring them.

Dreams are an amazing tool to allow us to go within and see what our subconscious is up to. It's a wonderful way to see what our highest self wants us to know. And once you get the hang of remembering your dreams, you can take it a step further and start asking your highest self questions that you would like answered in your dreams. You always have the answers - and dreams are just another tool to help you find them.
