Dreams: Clues to Your Heart?

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Have you ever had a dream that somehow seemed important, but you didn’t know why?

It may be a message from your heart about what needs to be healed.

I have long been fascinated by dreams, ever since college days when I studied Carl Jung’s ideas on dreams and the symbols of the “collective unconscious.” I was a literature major, so images and symbols fascinated me.

Now, as a Healing Codes Practitioner, I hear from clients who sometimes tell me their dreams, and I’m struck by how often the dreams give clues to heart issues that need to be healed.

forest path leading to light

For instance, one woman shared this dream:I was a young girl and was attacked by a tiger, but it seemed to only give me a tiny surface scratch on my upper arm.  Later in the dream, I lifted up my sleeve and the wound was HUGE and festering and disgusting and dangerous and I  knew it would kill me if I didn’t heal it!  And in the dream I had not been at all aware what was going on under my shirt sleeve!  I thought the ‘wound’ was ‘nothing’ until I ‘uncovered’ the wound and learned it was actually horribly infected and was killing me!  My mother and brother were in that dream (key players in my hurtful childhood).  Obviously, it was full of symbolism about the pictures of the heart (things that seemed small when they happened are really festering and deadly if not dealt with using the Healing Codes!).  Pretty cool, huh?”

This client was becoming adept at seeing the connection and receiving the message from her heart. In fact, she also shared this (see if you can make a connection between this and her dream): “Interestingly, I am suddenly able to do the ‘kindness’ code in the Healing Codes manual!  I was in complete denial about that one up until after I had done your last custom code!  Suddenly, it was absolutely clear to me that the ‘kindness’ issue was one of my MAJOR problems!  Suddenly, I could see how all the ‘problems’ connected with the ‘kindness’ issue DO apply to me perfectly!  SO STRANGE that I could NOT see that before!  I just refused to acknowledge it and refused to see how any of that applied to me.  It’s obvious now. So I have been focusing on the ‘kindness’ code from the HC manual since the last custom code ‘expired’ and I can REALLY feel things happening inside of me!”

After she had the dream, and had used the custom Healing Code I gave her, this client was able to break through and work on an issue that may well have been at the core of her most troublesome issues.

See how it all works? A custom code “jump starts” healing to the point where the heart can begin to trust that, if it opens the door and lets some memories out, they will be healed rather than cause more hurt. (As The Healing Code explains, the role of the heart is to protect you from further emotional pain.) Once some memories are healed, the heart offers up more. Those are healed, and you begin a beautiful spiral upwards toward fullness of life.

Often a client will tell me that they have no memories. Here is where dreams can be especially helpful.  The key: Use your dream as the “memory” you are healing. Identify the feelings from the dream, and insert in the prayer of intention, where you would normally put the memory: “. . .  from the dream about. . . .”

If you have had recurring dreams, pay attention! Try healing “the [feeling(s)” from the dreams about. . .” Again, these are clues from the heart about something that needs to be healed.

If you feel “stuck” in any way, start telling your heart that you will pay attention to your dreams. Try to remember them when you awake, and even write down any dream that feels especially vivid.

Feelings and images are the things to pay attention to. This is not at all about “if you dream about such and such it means this will happen.” It’s about what feelings your dream calls up, and the images from the dream. They are images that will mean something to you. For instance, the “tiger” in my client’s dream could be any number of things. We had to explore what that symbol meant for her. If you had a similar dream, the tiger might mean something completely different.

So welcome your dreams, and the healing that follows!

Learning the Language of the Heart

Posted by: | Comments (6)

As I work with clients on healing their heart issues, it occurs to me that learning to understand how the (nonphysical) heart works is like learning a new language.

Some years ago we had an exchange student from Spain living with us. As Teresa tried to communicate in English and we in Spanish, it was awkward, funny, and frustrating at times. My daughter and I struggled to roll our r’s, and I suspect Teresa wondered what’s the big deal.

You may feel the same awkwardness about learning the language of the heart.

What I love about languages is the way it opens up your perspective. Though you’re dealing with words, it goes beyond words to a whole way of perceiving. That is the enriching part. For instance, when I would call my cat “Gatit0,” there is no exact English equivalent that captures the warm affection “-ito” expresses.

As you learn this new “language of the heart,” it will expand your perception of yourself, other people, and the world. The “grammar” of this language, as I wrote elsewhere, is governed by association, images, metaphors. To learn this language, you must be open to these non-linear, non-logical ways of thinking.

The language of the heart is largely governed by feelings. It’s the feelings that we trace to the memory. The feeling is the clue. It’s also the energy that is causing the negative frequency, the stress signal that’s causing your cells to go into “closed, death mode” rather than “open/growth/healing mode.”

So to learn this language, you start with feeling. You are open to seemingly illogical things, such as a certain color sparking panic. A client began to tune in to the fact that she had a stress reaction to the color red. Why? She had no idea. We traced it to an infant memory of terror associated with the color red. As that healed, her overall stress level went down dramatically.

Dreams can give us big clues as to what the heart wants to heal. Again, you’re looking for images and feelings. One client shared a dream with me and it became clear that her heart wanted her to heal some fear memories concerning her father.

With another client, we always start with the several dreams she has written down; they provide both clues to what needs to heal. Also, somewhat surprisingly, often her dreams portray the healing she has experienced. (I call those “progress dreams.”)

If you commit to learning the language of the heart, your heart will begin to send you more and more clues. It’s quite fun, actually.

Of course, if you need a little help decoding, feel free to contact me for some coaching.
