Want Intuitive Guidance? Start Remembering Your Dreams.

Have you ever had a dream that was so vivid you’d swear it really happened?

Even if you had the dream years, and years ago – can you still recall it to this day?

There’s something so wonderful about having a dream and waking up and remembering it, isn’t there?

I have lots of dreams and I’ve trained myself to remember them. And, I’ve been recording them since I was a teenager.

One particularly vivid dream I had a few years ago comes to mind:

I was in the car with a client going to business meeting when I spotted my Aunt – who’d passed away – on the sidewalk chatting with some people. I was elated to see her. I was going to stop to get out and visit with her, but decided against it due to having the client with me. My Aunt saw me and waived me over excitedly, but I gave her a signal to wait for me and I be back as soon as I could. I needed to get to this business meeting. When I returned later my Aunt was gone. My heart sank when I realized what a special opportunity I’d missed to spend time with my Aunt.

Intuitive guidance comes through our dreams

The dream made me see that my life was out of balance. I had been putting my job ahead of everything, and my passions and personal life suffered for it.

I took the message from my intuition in that dream very seriously. I understood that if I didn’t do what I really wanted in my life – the opportunities might not always be there. I decided I had to make time to write and stick to it – no matter what. I didn’t want to look back someday and say why didn’t I follow my heart?

If you can’t remember the last time you had a dream then you’re missing out on an important way that intuition communicates with us.

Everybody dreams, even those of who say they can’t remember them.

Get into the habit of remembering your dreams and you’ll get the benefit of intuitive guidance.

Here’s a fool-proof way to remember your dreams:

1. Make sure you keep a pad and pen on your bedside table.

2. Set the alarm for a half hour earlier to have time to mull over your dream.

3. Create the intention to have a dream and recall it. Spend a few minutes before drifting off telling yourself that you want to have a dream, that you will have a dream and that you will readily and easily remember it.

4. DO NOT OPEN YOUR EYES right away when you wake up. After turning off the alarm clock – DO NOT MOVE. Just lay still to allow the dream to stay on the surface of your mind.

5. Do not allow pets to distract you when you wake, or better yet keep them out of the bedroom.

6. WRITE DOWN the pertinent details before they sink back down to the depths of the subconscious. I cannot tell you how many time I thought I’d remember a dream and didn’t write it down, only to find it had vanished moments later.

7. Do meditate directly after getting out of bed. If you’re not a meditator don’t turn on the radio or TV or talk right after waking either. Silence allows further dream fragments to bubble up to the surface of awareness.

That’s it. Now it’s up to you. Let me know how you make out.

Do You Speak Intuition? How to Crack the Intuition Code

Getting an intuitive message only takes a split second, but missing one and dealing with the mess of an unheeded warning can take much longer to fix.  Read my previous post to see just how disastrous it can be to ignore your intuition.

Intuition uses an encrypted code to communicate

To de-cypher the messages you need the keys that unlock this secret language. Once you have the code down – you will be amazed by the number of intuitive messages you receive on a daily basis.

The other morning the first image that sprang to mind was not from a dream, but a memory of a segment on the evening news from a week ago. A woman whose electricity went out due to a heavy snow storm was interviewed and stated that her family was lucky because they had a wood-burning stove in the house, so they weren’t freezing like her neighbors were. My first thought was, I’m lucky too at least if my heat went out I could use my fireplace.

When I got downstairs I turned the thermostat up and then dove into my morning routine. An hour later I realized the heat hadn’t come on. After checking to see if the pilot was lit – it was – I concluded I’d have to call the gas company. Luckily, the technician came by early afternoon and the repair was a simple one – a faulty wire. I was very grateful.

Intuition may speak through a picture or image

I started thinking about the image of the woman whose electricity was out and realized it had been my intuition preparing me for having no heat. The thought I had afterward comparing my fireplace to her having a wood burning stove had foretold that all would be well. It got me thinking about the many ways our intuition communicates with us.

I realized that intuition has its own language. To crack the intuition code you need to be aware of all the ways intuition transmits information. Here are some of the way my intuition communicates with me.

Five ways intuition speaks to us

1. Physical. You get a gut feeling. The feeling in your gut can be fearful, nervous, anxious, cautious, hesitant, or just a feeling that something is about to happen – yet you don’t know what. When IT happens – the feeling subsides. I’ve also experienced it as a feeling of nausea and bouts of yawning too.

2. Cerebral. It feels as though a thought has touched down out of no where into your mind. It can also be experienced as a nagging thought that won’t go away. And, sometimes it’s when you know that you know something, but you can’t explain how or why you know it. It can also come as a flash of insight, or  can take the form of an image or symbol in the mind’s eye.

3. Empathic. Picking up on the emotions of others and feeling that emotion yourself. It can also be feeling the pain others experience in your own body. It can also come in the form of taking an immediate liking to a person, or a dislike for that matter. It’s an instinct you have about someone.

4. Signs and affirmations. Things like missing the train to work only to find out later that there was a huge problem with the railways and all the trains stopped running for hours. Or considering a job change with a company you’re nervous about and then seeing an article on the front page of the paper, or hearing a report about them on the radio stating that this company is rated on of the top ten to work for.

5. Hearing The Voice. This may occur less frequently but it does happen. You’ve been trying to solve a problem and thinking about it over and over. Suddenly, you hear a voice that seems loud enough to have been heard by others, but judging from their faces no one heard it but you. It came from within you mind but it wasn’t in your own voice and it had the exact answer you’d been searching for. “Go for that job!,” etc.

Start paying attention and looking for these encoded message – because believe me you are getting them! You’re just not aware until you focus and tune in.

These are the most common ways my intuition speaks to me. It isn’t a definitive list by any means. If you have experienced something different don’t discount it. Intuition works uniquely for each of us.  I’d be very interested to hear of other ways intuition communicates to us, so please do share.
