Dreams and their Meanings

Posted on Updated on

Dreams and their meanings have puzzled and intrigued man from the beginning of time.

They fall into three categories. Some dreams are products of your subconscious mind, some are symbolic messages or warnings from those in the spirit world and some are as a result of astral travelling.

Dreams which involve meeting and speaking to someone who has passed over can be due to astral travelling, in which you may meet up with a loved one whilst in sleep state. At times the feeling of deja-vu can be caused by visiting a place you have already been to in your ‘dreams’. Your spirit leaves your body and can travel in this world or the next, still attached to your body by a silver cord.

Whilst in the spirit world, people there are able to communicate with you. They may give you information, knowledge, warnings or advice. This information is then relayed along the silver cord, back to your brain, which receives it in picture form, rather like a TV, and so your dreams are formed. You must then interpret the meanings of these pictures to fully understand their meaning, which is often symbolic.

Recurring dreams can be quite common. If you have not realised the meaning of your dream you may be given it again and again until you interpret it successfully.

Although we dream every night, we forget far more dreams than we remember.We soak up the knowledge given to us whilst asleep rather like a sponge. When our spirit returns to our physical body however, our finite brain squeezes the sponge and much of what we learned is lost. The tiny drops of spiritual knowledge which remain are very precious and we should treasure rather than dismiss them.

What happens when you die

Posted on Updated on

There is nothing to fear in the act of dying. It is the most natural process in the world. It is as simple as passing from one room to the next.

When you die, as we all one day will, your spirit leaves your earthly body to begin an exciting new life in the spirit world. Friends and family who have passed before you may come to greet you. Your spirit is joined to your earthly body by a glowing rope like thread which we may call the ‘silver cord’ and upon death this cord breaks, in a similar way to how the physical umbilical cord breaks when we are born. The beginning and the end of this earthly life are both marked by the cutting of a cord.

At times during your life your spirit may leave your body but remain attached by the silver cord. This occurs if you are astral travelling, perhaps in a dream, or if you have a near death experience in which you are resuscitated. You may have heard stories of people who have seen a bright light, perhaps travelled down a tunnel and met family and friends from the spirit world. True death however does not occur until the cord breaks.  Once this happens it is not possible to be ‘brought back to life’.

Modern society has developed wonderful and invaluable life supporting machines. They can inflate the lungs and keep the heart beating, but once the spirit has left and the cord is severed, the body is just an empty shell. The person is no longer there but has moved on. Doctors may call this brain stem death and the machine may just as well be turned off.

The condition of the pclairaudienthysical body or the way in which we die can affect our mental attitude upon passing.

For example, the elderly gentleman who has led a good life may slip in and out of his body frequently, still joined by the silver cord, over a period of time. His spirit may visit friends or relatives in the spirit word who come close to him to assist him with his own transition. He may fall in and out of sleep, reporting when he wakes that he has seen family members. With each visit the cord becomes thinner until at last it breaks and he passes to spirit himself.

In contrast, a young man may be taken suddenly, perhaps as the result of a tragic accident. The silver cord is instantly cut and it is not unusual for the person to not immediately realise what has happened. He may get up and think he has had a miraculous escape. He may talk to those around him and wonder why they don’t hear him. In these cases the young man would be helped by those in spirit and over time would come to understand and accept his situation.

When a person dies as the result of a long illness, they can find themselves in a ‘spirit hospital’ where they slowly recover and are helped to adjust to their new situation in familiar surroundings.

People with no spiritual knowledge or understanding can be very confused when they pass. For someone who believes that death is the end to ‘wake up dead’ is quite a shock.

When you leave your earthly body behind you no longer feel the strain of carrying it’s weight with you and any disabilities you had disappear. Spirit helpers analyse your life with you and help you to understand what you did wrong and how your thoughts and actions affected other people. At this point your new home in spirit is determined and you will go to where you are among others who are at the same level of spirituality as yourself. There you will continue to learn.

Remember, when the caterpillar thinks it is the end of the world, the master knows it is turning into a butterfly.
