I woke up last Sunday having dreamt a nightmare. I was lying on the beach with a friend. When I lifted my head from the sand and glanced toward the ocean, I was startled by a skyscraper-sized wall of water, ready to crash down upon us.
You’ve probably had one of those dreams where you’re being chased? I like to imagine that my mind contains a a psychological pressure valve; that fearful dreams like these are a release of pent up anxiety.
I never take a dream literally.
Usually, if a dream is to be psychically true, it won’t be surreal. In other words, in literally psychic dreams, the laws of physics are generally in tact. Still, individual elements from strange dreams can present themselves in your reality. Either way, they’re fun to observe. It’s all about tuning into them.
The afternoon after my dream, I happened upon a giant mural of a wave in Providence, R.I. I thought, “Oh, wow, there’s that wall of water I dreamt about. It’s nothing to fear at all. In fact, it’s a huge work of art.”
My intuitive dream interpretation shifted from fear to admiration. I’ve been feeling a lot a pressure to complete a book I’ve been writing. Dreaming of this mural, to me, symbolized some fears surrounding the project. But it also represents a great work being realized!
To experience a psychic dream, before you go to sleep tonight, suggest to yourself that you will remember one tomorrow.
