Do you know that your nightmares may be gift in disguise? What better way for your spirit guides to get your attention than with a frightening dream? If you have ever had a nightmare that was so horrific you were afraid to go back to sleep, good for you!
Nightmares do not terrorize us just for the fun of it. They have a number of positive purposes.
The emotion they elicit is meant to help you remember and do something as important as saving your life or the life of a loved one. The emotion you awaken with is a snippet of something bigger; an important part of your future.
In my 30 second award winning video I will show you:
- the importance of nightmares
- what some Spirit-guides can look like
- how to communicate with your Spirit Guides
It is easy to dismiss a nice calming Epic Dream, and that is okay. Its purpose is to let us relax so we can drift into a deeper sleep level, forget reality, and have a good rest. Nightmares, on the other hand, tell us to do something to change our course in life. It could be as simple as remembering not to forget the signs and symbols from an important event that happened in our childhood. We don’t want make the same painful mistake again on a larger scale as an adult. All the challenges in our life, no matter how painful, were a learning experience. Nightmares can help us remember those lessons without actually experiencing the physical trauma, especially if there is potential for them to happen again.
Forewarned is armed.
We have Epic dreams as we first fall asleep. When we wake up we often think we are still having the same dream because we are still in it, but that is not the case. We shift in and out of our Epic Dream Door about four times during the night. One purpose of our Epic Dream is to get us into a deeper dream state. Between the beginning and end of our Epic Dream we can have an important nightmare while in the deep sleep level of REM; Rapid Eye Movement.
During REM your Spirit Guides often enter dreams with important information.
Your Spirit Guides are an important part of your life. You were born with them, you are their job, and they take that job very seriously.
But what about those unforgettable nightmare that are so disturbing and frightening they wake us up in the middle of the night. What is their purpose?
Nightmares have three important purposes.
- Get your attention. Fear works!
- Keep your attention by making the experience so frightening you cannot forget it. The third purpose is to give you important information to
- Guide you on your life-path so you remain aligned with your life-purpose. This guidance can come as a call-to-action with specific verbal directions like, “Return to your doctors without an appointment and demand a different test for breast cancer.”
If the information is life-saving and is ignored or not understood you may not be able to fulfill your life-destiny. You may have to come back and try it again in your next life. Wouldn’t it be easier to embrace your nightmare as a gift in disguise, decipher its meaning and message, follow he call to action and thank your Spirit Guides for the opportunity to get back on the right path and fulfill your destiny now?
Nightmares are personal gifts from your Higher Power and brought into your dreams by your Spirit-guides. They are important pearls of wisdom and beautiful golden threads of life. String your pearls on those threads and wear them with pride. Nightmares are an important part of your waking life.
