Dreaming With Angels

Thursday, October 02, 2008

Dreams are a doorway into the unconscious, and they are also a doorway into the subtle realms. They are rather like long letters from your unconscious, often written in a strange and mysterious language. Dreams are also another portal through which you can get to know your Angels and enjoy your ongoing relationship.

Connecting to the Angels in this way is natural and easy; it happens whether we are aware of it or not. The dream state is a particular advantageous access point for our celestial companions, because while we sleep, the unconscious mind is wide open. Gone are the resistances and blocks that the conscious mind - the ego - puts up to keep the Angels at bay. The fluid, spontaneous quality of dreams more closely approximates the way that Angels function than the highly organized, regimented state that we humans exist in during our waking hours.

Our Angels often come to us in our dreams but we do not always remember them, or if we do, we may not always recognize them. In the dream they may be intimate friends, yet when we awake we know we have never seen them before. Or they may show up as wise, powerful, or significant figures, not necessarily with wings, or other stereotypical signs of their identity, such as harps and halos.

Sometimes, we awaken with a sense of well-being, a feeling that all is well, that we are blessed to be alive. We may not even remember dreaming but the good mood permeates our normal morning routine, like sunshine suddenly illuminating a dull, grey sky. When that occurs, there is a good chance that one of our Angels made a guest appearance while we slept.

We have all grown up believing that there is a separation between humans and Angels, if we grew up believing in Angels at all. But that separation is only a state of mind - our mind, not that of the Angels. In our dreams, it is possible to both change our mind and to surmount the mental barriers that we have erected, so we can be with our Angels quite naturally.

If you take your Angel dreams seriously, you may wish to practice dream recall. Remembering your dreams is the first step - and it is a challenge. Dreams are elusive. A positive mental attitude is essential. All you need to do to start is to believe in your dreams. What we believe in, we value. What we value, we bring energy to, and what we bring energy to begins to increase.

If you have spent your life unconvinced of the value of remembering dreams, do not expect to wake up tomorrow morning with one on your pillow. It takes time to inaugurate a new belief. But you can reprogram your conscious, waking mind to allow dream recall to come through. The good thing is, every night you can sleep on it! Dreams come true and when they do, they are manifestations of our deepest heart's wish. They connect us with our passion.

A passion to connect with your Angels is the motivation that will enable you to meet them in your dreams. Next comes diligence. You have to be willing to stay with the process and overcome deeply ingrained resistance. If you wake in the middle of the night with a dream, recapture it as you lie in bed, without moving. Replay the dream - you can begin with whatever part you remember and allow it to expand. Then write it down and date it just before you go back to sleep.

Upon waking with a dream, follow the same procedure. Changing your physical position can blow it away during the replay part, so lie quietly and recall all that you can of the dream. Then write it down in as much detail as you can remember. Date your dreams. You may even want to give each one a title that summarizes it. This will help you recall it or find it later.

There is a built-in resistance in doing this, which needs to be consciously overcome. Resistance also comes in the form of dismissing certain dreams because they do not make sense or because you do not remember all the details. But as you increasingly begin to value your dreams, you will find that this resistance fades.

Here are a few ways to help you utilize the sleep state and stimulate dream recall.

Dream Affirmations: These establish a positive, accepting state of mind. When repeated over and over - especially when expressed with a great deal of conviction - affirmations flow into the unconscious mind, aligning it with the conscious one. Affirmations have greater power when they are accompanied by a visualization. So you may want to picture, or imagine, the experience of your affirmation while you are starting it. If you do not usually remember your dreams, try this one:

"I will dream. I will remember my dream. I will wake up and write down my dream." As you say the words, picture yourself sleeping and having a dream. Then see yourself waking up, reaching for your dream journal or Angel notebook, and writing it down. If your dream recall is good, omit the first affirmation, and move on to: "I am open to you, my Angel. I invite you to meet me in my dreams."

It is always best when you create your own affirmations to invoke your Angel by name if you know it. Choose your own words, using the two examples above as guides. Again, the more you connect to your feelings in this, the more power you give to your affirmations. It helps to visualize a beam of pink or golden light streaming out of your heart and connecting to your Angel's heart as you do this affirmation. Or you may feel drawn to picture a beautiful place or environment where you can meet your Angel. Repeat your affirmation as you imagine the scene.

Once you have established contact with your Angel in your dreams you can begin to work with it on specific issues, asking questions as you drift off into sleep. This works the same way as writing to your Angel, and in fact, you may wish to write the questions down on a piece of paper and place it under your pillow. Even if you do that, it is also a good idea to vocalize the affirmation:

"Dear Angel, in my dream tonight I would like clarification on .........," or, "Please give me some clarity on ......," or, "Please help me to understand ...... "

Use your intention as a point of focus to seed the dream state. Just as you are drifting off to sleep, imagine having a dream in which your Angel comes to you. Simply make up a dream exactly the way you would like to have it. The dream you recall in the morning will contain some element or trace of that seed. Affirm that this is so, even though you may have to play detective to find the clue.

The key to identifying them in our dreams, our Angels tell us, is feeling the tone of the dream. The emotions or sense that you have of the dream atmosphere, a quality or event that is unusual, exotic, or other-wordly, can signify the presence of the Angels.

Even after you have established dream contact, it can take a few days or even weeks of asking the same question before you fully receive or understand the answer. And it may not come through the Angels making a direct appearance. The dream itself may be your Angel's reply. Or, the answer may come in a single word, image, or a song that you wake up remembering. The reply can also be the gift of a dream in which you find yourself flying, without effort and without wings. And sometimes, the answer comes not in a dream but in an event, happening, or moment of sudden insight. It may come to you in a casual phone call from a friend, or a sentence you read in the morning newspaper, or a snatch of conversation overheard in the street. The main thing is to be aware and open.

Patience will allow you to persevere, even if you do not get results right away. Patience will help you build faith in your Angels, trusting that in time they will come in this way, too. Faith endears you to your unseen advocates, as well as creating the space for miracles, which is where they flock and flourish. Miracles do not have to be earth-changing. Miracles can be tiny happenings in your daily life that make you feel good or that make you laugh or even cry from happiness.

Jacob dreamt about a ladder going up to heaven, with Angels climbing up and down. But since times have changed, while you are drifting into sleep you might want to visualize a golden elevator in which you and your Angel are traveling up into the dream world. Doing this will support you in dream recall, working with your affirmations, and seeding your dreams.

Even though it seems like I'm a day behind with the postings, my brain is on track!

Last night I had an angel give me a name, which I commented on yesterday's comments. I have done some research and found my angel's name is Mychaze (pronounced moo-shaw-sha or thereabouts). I don't know if the angel is a boy or girl, however, I suspect it is a genderless entity. Mychaze is mentioned as an angel for Sunday in the Grimoire named "The Sworne Book of Honoryus" which is a book of magic from I think the 16th century. That's all I have been able to find for now. I'm thinking of e-mailing some angel experts to see if they have any further input.

I'm so excited that I was able to find out anything at all!
