While we are awake, we experience reality through our fundamental nature. We judge our environment based on rationale and logical thinking. In fact, most of the time while we are fully awake we tend to judge this reality with our five senses that shape our view of this reality. However, still there are things that seem unable to be explained which do not get along with our fundamental thinking that leads us to disregard it as non-existent. Perhaps, dreams are the doorway to explore the reality of the unseen world.
What are dreams.
Meanwhile, some of us will give personal interpretations and view dreams according to one’s perceptions and beliefs. However, scientific belief interprets dreams as the subjective experience of imaginary images, sounds or voices, words, thoughts or sensations during sleep, while some interpret as a series of images, ideas, and emotions occurring in the mind during the 5th stage of sleep known as the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) stage.
However, it is widely believed that dreams are visions meant to guide us. Moreover, Freud and Jung have compared dream material with its symbolic content that have became psychotherapy’s most important aid in the exploration of the unconscious.
Therefore, I believe that dreams also may have links to the existence of parallel worlds too. Perhaps, to dream is the easiest way for an ordinary person to experience the existence of parallel worlds as Reader’s Digest (1979) has suggested in How to Interpret Your Dreams, where it is believed that dreams are the gateway to an inner world, a world just as real as the one outside. Furthermore, Reader’s Digest had added, “What is outside is also inside; what is inside is also outside.”
What is beyond dreams.
Interestingly we believe that dreams can aid us to continue our existence and even before we see the future dimension, but there are still sceptics who ignore dreams and label them as fragments of images that play while we are asleep that are not more than just the reflections related to our daily activities. Therefore, according to them dreams are not more than just brain activities.
However, I believe that there are things that we can learn beyond dreams. In fact, dreams may also enlighten our personal emotional burden. Therefore, dreams perhaps is a doorway to search for personal problems that we are not able to solve in reality. In fact, dreams are as real as how we experience in reality. Furthermore, I would like to point out my own personal experiences on getting clues and answers to a certain personal difficulty. I realise, every time I could not solve any difficulties or I really needed an answer for a certain doubt, then my inner soul will search and resolve the difficulty through lucid dreams.
One good example how dreams have given me an answer about my relationship with someone as I really needed through my dreams whether the person I was having a relationship with would be my future partner. My dream however foretold that someone else was to be my life partner even though I was at that time going steady with the person mentioned. Therefore, I realise that dreams do give us the opportunity to prepare ourselves emotionally before future events take place. Really, dreams are the doorway to the future!
Nevertheless, in my opinion not all dreams that we have are significant and have links to the future dimension or to the parallel worlds. Some dreams might just be insignificant dreams but sometimes, there are dreams that would be difficult to forget or we might wake up while we are asleep. Then, these kind of dreams might have very important messages within the dreams itself. Perhaps, trough dreams we can explore the other side of the world or at least understand our own future dimension.
As for me, I believe that dreams do have significance and which provide the opportunity for us to see the parallel world or even make contact with those who have already departed from this world even though we may suddenly realise in our dream that the person has already died. Therefore, I believe that dreams can be a spiritual source that really can assist us to face our personal heart’s crisis. Furthermore, dreams are always honest and trustworthy. Therefore, in dreams we will experience something that we do not wish for but will happen. Then again, we must remember that in order to live happily in future we have to master every obstacle in the path of our spiritual journey. In fact, dreams sometimes will bring about a message that something would be not right in our path in future such as losing someone we love.
Finally, one may find dreams to be a vision that might happen in future but personally for me, dreams are like a doorway to the future dimension where is our inner self has already experienced the future to give us the opportunity to learn and prepare ourselves before those foretelling happen in reality, or we may even be able to alter future dimensions that may benefit us through our positive attitude and visualization.
