Your Dreams Are a Way the Divine Uses To Get Through To You

Share this

Thursday morning I awakened from a strange dream. In the dream I was upset because I had realized that my daughter had parked my car in the ocean. I stood on the shore looking at my car; it wasn’t that far away, maybe a hundred meters or so, and it was not the only car out there: there were about a half dozen other vehicles parked in one neat row off the shore.

A storm was brewing and the cars were getting a beating from the waves but that is not why I was upset. I was upset because my car being out in the ocean was a weird, unexpected oddity and also, I didn’t have access to my vehicle and didn’t have any idea how to get it back! So I looked for my daughter and demanded that she get my car right back.

After hearing my complaint she left to see someone, perhaps the “ocean valet,” and a few moments later, my car was being delivered to me on some kind of mechanical platform that delivered cars, one by one. Before awakening from the dream, I remember thinking that all I had to do was ask, and it was delivered.

I believe the storm is a sign of the tumultuous times we’re living in right now, and the ocean signifies our spiritual world (our inner world). I’ve been feeling a bit of anxiety lately in my “body vehicle,” and my other “vehicles”–my car and my computer–have had their issues as well. My car’s problem (the ignition lock) has been recently fixed, and my laptop (still under warranty) most likely has a hard drive failure that ought to get fixed shortly. (I asked a friend for his assessment and was relieved to hear that it most likely is a simple hard drive failure having nothing to do with me.)

One of the lessons here is to ask for what you need. Many “lightworkers / warriors” are used to plowing through on their own and forget to ask others to help them. Sometimes reaching out and asking those who can help can take a bit of courage, but it’s the next step in your personal growth. Sometimes you need to ask the “ocean valet” (God, the Divine, our spirit guides) for help and guidance.

There’s another dream that has been on my mind quite a lot lately. I had the dream in 2005, but am being guided to share it here, to help change the direction of the path humanity is on. The following dream is excerpted from my memoir What Everyone Believed:

“At the end of January 2005, I awakened from a dream where I was scrambling across a craggy landscape that looked like the aftermath of a mountain  explosion. Large boulders and slabs lay all around in disarray, as though they had fallen from the sky. Crevices wide enough to fall through stymied your path; you had to watch your every move. I was stepping through the wreckage,  hopping from boulder to boulder, headed towards a city that looked like ancient  Rome. When I entered the city through the front gates, I saw lions living among the people. Lions loitered in the courtyards, on the piazzas and the verandas.  The people hummed about the city guardedly–quite understandable, given that you could never be sure what a lion might do. I too walked around feeling guarded, and slipped away to a safe place while still going about my normal business. I  was with a Hispanic woman. She had been stopped for questioning at one of the  city’s checkpoints–a common thing. And as I was waiting for her, I awakened  from my dream.

After I recorded my dream into a journal, it had occurred to me that the people had learned to live with the lions; the two had coexisted. And perhaps after a few generations, it became the only way they knew how to live. They had learned how to walk, what to do, what to feed the lions. They went about their daily business taking certain precautions and thus, remained relatively safe. And then, the lions did not seem so much like lions anymore. They mostly lazed around, swishing their tails.”–End of excerpt.

Back at the time of my dream (which was for me … divine guidance), I had interpreted it to mean that I was to keep going with my mission while coexisting with my fears. Furthermore, I saw the fears being tamed, and the “lions” out in the world could also be tamed.

What about you? Is your fear still blocking you from doing what you’re here to do? Perhaps you’ll discover that your fears and anxieties (if you examine them and move through them) are the catalysts that allow you to discover your unique contribution at this important time in humanity’s history. Dreams are a form of divine guidance and a way your higher self uses to get through to you. And when you connect and integrate with your higher self, you will have clearer dreams that guide.

    hi christine
    your dream about the lion reminded me of the book called ‘anastasia’.
    by vladimir megre. she happens to live in a remote area in russia and has animals as friends who look out for her
    the symbolism i guess is the fact that we can live together with animals. there have been lots of news on e mails about animals who have never been together with other type of animals but now they are the best of friends.
    cheers mary

    • Thanks for your comment, Mary. I recently got 2 books in the Anastasia series, but have not started reading them yet. I will, soon!

    I have recently become interested in dreams, especially since I am having the same one a lot lately. This dream keeps telling me to trust what’s coming and know it will be right for me. To be completely honest, there is a little fear still holding me back from doing what I know has to be done. The big question for me is timing. Trying to decide whether to dive right in or to wait on the perfect time. Maybe this is the fear talking? This post has helped me to confront that this morning.

    • Hi Joshua, your dreams may be preparing you for this thing, and when the timing is right, you will know. You’ll just go ahead and do it, or something will happen that tells you the timing is right (a sign that you can’t ignore), or else something else will trigger this event. Ask your higher self to show you clearly when the timing is right. Thank you for your comment!

    Hi Christine,
    Your post about dreams reminds me to pay attention to my dreams and log them in my journal. I too have been noticing more dreams lately.

    • Hi Les, logging the dreams in a journal (as soon as you’re awake) trains your mind to remember them. Another tip is to go over your dream in your mind over and over before you completely wake up. This helps you remember the details.

    Still a favorite song:

    Bruce Cockburn
    “Wondering Where The Lions Are”

    Sun’s up, uuh huh, looks okay
    the world survives into another day
    and i’m thinking about eternity
    some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me.
    I had another dream about lions at the door
    they weren’t half as frightening as they were before
    but i’m thinking about eternity
    some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me.
    Walls windows trees, waves coming through
    you be in me and i’ll be in you
    together in eternity
    some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me
    Up among the firs where it smells so sweet
    or down in the valley where the river used to be
    i got my mind on eternity
    some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me
    and i’m wondering where the lions are…
    i’m wondering where the lions are…
    Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake,
    thousand-year-old petroglyphs doing a double take,
    pointing a finger at eternity
    i’m sitting in the middle of this ecstasy
    Young men marching, helmets shining in the sun,
    polished as precise like the brain behind the gun
    (should be!) they got me thinking about eternity
    some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me
    and i’m wondering where the lions are…
    i’m wondering where the lions are…
    Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay
    One of these days we’re going to sail away,
    going to sail into eternity
    some kind of ecstasy got a hold on me
    and i’m wondering where the lions are…
    i’m wondering where the lions are

    • Thanks for sharing this, Maria! I’m going to go listen to this song! The funny thing is, years ago, the same day I was editing the chapter with that dream, a local radio station had a contest to see who would call in with the name of an artist and song with the highest male musical note/voice in the song. Although many great high-noters such as Steve Perry were nominated, the song “The lion sleeps tonight” won the contest that day.

    Hi Christine,
    I don’t think I am a big dreamer, but I have had some extremely vivid ones recently. The one that sticks in my mind the most is because it was so unusual. In the dream I seemed to be a wolf…a male wolf at that… and I seemed to be standing protectively over my mate and our pups. It was very black, not even moonlight, yet I could sense every leaf, shrub, tree everything was sharp and clear…I was staring into the trees, my fur was up and I could sense danger/menace…I was trying to growl…in fact I woke my husband who then woke me because I was making strange sounds in my sleep! I have no idea what if anything this dream means, but I have a sister who has had some very significant dreams over the past few years during a time when both she and I were awakening to the enormity of truth and leaving behind the dogma of a very religious upbringing.
    Your dream reminds me of a recurring dream I have had on and off all my life though not for a while now. In the dream I would be standing outside with a view of the country…yet at the same time it was like I was seeing over vast areas…like standing on a mountain top and looking over a country and seeing farms, towns…cities…yet in detail as though I’m close. I sense something is about to happen and I look up and realise a great wave is rising up, up up until the sky is filled with this wave, but its clear…I can see everything through it…I watch it until my neck is craned and it is straight above me and I realise I’m in the wave but I can still breath…
    I always felt the wave was significant of change…and with the rate at which new understanding and the sweeping away of old religious dogma and ideas has been happening not only in myself but my children, my sister and others I meet serendipitously (such as yourself via the internet.) and that I have not had the dream since this ‘wave’ hit me…and I find my vision has expanded to see the oneness in all …and I’m still breathing through it all with a sense of great wonder…

    • Thank you Rhonda, what an awesome dream! I concur that waves represent change, and growth. A great wave of unconditional love is sweeping across the world–that’s the way I see it.

    Hello Christine! Im fascinated with the notion of dream interpretation and the essence of dreams being communicatin from the Divine…however, what if we DON’T dream? I cant seem to remember any of my dreams…any insight??

    August 5, 2012
    • Hi LaMont, you might want to get into the habit of going to sleep stating the intention of remembering your dreams. Ask your higher self to help you remember your dreams and to help you interpret them. This will help. Christine

    (As an aside, I just LOVED the Anastasia series when I read it 3 years ago! I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately because in one of the books she goes into great detail about how an alien race will try to tempt us with their technology and we should be wary. Interesting no?!)

    Anyway! I’ve always had a very vivid dream life and get SO MUCH guidance and wisdom from them. When I was 16 years old and my Pepere (grandfather) was very sick, I dreamed that he said goodbye to me in a dream. The next morning my Mom told me that he had died. I feel this was a tremendous gift from him because not only did I get to say bye to him, I learned to trust and look to my dreams for answers, guidance, and communication.

    My most significant dream (that started me earnestly on my path of awakening) happened 6 years ago when my first son was still a baby. At the time I was searching and doing my best to love unconditionally and it became clear that this was something that doesn’t come to we humans naturally. I think because I was so actively searching and attempting to love this way that one night I was brought to a 5th dimensional planet of unconditional love. It really was one of the most amazing things that has ever happened to me. It took up 12 pages in my journal and has been a signpost to me throughout the years of what we’re aspiring to.

    The last “message” dream that I remember was a couple of nights ago. My husband and I were at this large town hall like meeting where 3 very self-important men were talking about the “new” way things were going to be. I was alone in the balcony with my husband listening as they rambled on and on. When there was a break in the conversation I very loudly proclaimed “Well! This has been a snoozer so far!” My husband rolled his eyes as he could tell I was about to do my rebel-speech and everyone in the hall turned to look at me. Just as I was about to talk and enlighten them on what people REALLY wanted, I woke up.

    I definitely have been feeling the need, more than ever, to speak my Truth at all costs. 😉

    Thanks for your lovely blog, Christine! I look forward to your posts every week. ♥

    August 5, 2012
    • Thanks for such a lovely post, Kate! I love the dream about speaking up! You keep going and keep speaking up about what people REALLY want. The world needs people like you and me speaking their truth, especially now. Thanks for your blog, too. I gotta get over there again soon. Love, Christine

    Dreams are fascinating!! LaMont do not worry about not being able to dream because you dream several times during the night or day which ever you go sleep. All humans dream when they sleep this is proven, As for not remembering your dreams i know how you feel about that as i cannot remember mine,i am lucky if i remember one or two a month just lately, A few months ago i would remember most nights, Christine’s advice to you is spot on! exactly the same way i tried yet i still cannot remember my dream’s, but i know that i do dream and know they can still come true.

    Dreams are so strange – often just snippets of a feeling or a memory. My most remembered dream was while I was expecting my first child in 1973. I was only 16 and didn’t know anything about babies or little children being an only child myself. A couple of months before the birth I had a dream of pushing a pram and I felt the most overwhelming love for the child inside the pram.

    After my little boy was born it took about two years to really bond with him. I had a second baby 15 months later who was always very close to his grandmother, but not to me.

    When the first boy was 18, I fell pregnant again and had another little boy who was born 18 years and one day after the first one. From the moment I knew I was expecting him I was besotted. I felt such strong loving and protective emotions towards him. This was the baby in the dream – I remembered the dream clearly the night he was born and for several months afterwards it was foremost in my mind.

    He is 21 now and I still love him to bits, he has been a fantastic son.

    • Thanks for sharing your story with us, Matilda! The word that comes to mind is precious. Peace to you and all your sons. Christine
