  3. It’s true, our mind does warn us sometimes through dreams–another way our subconscious mind tries to get our attention!

    • we both have seen these dreams, which really seem like messages from our mind or soul.

      • Yes, we’ve both had these types of dreams that have a real-life message from our souls. I’ve written many down through the years.

      • i have always believed that dreams are messages from our subconscious, with time and maturity that belief has become firmer.

        i too have so many of them, have shared some of them with you too.

      • I feel the same way. Many of my dreams have served to confirm a feeling that I have had about something was true. It’s similar to the intuitive thoughts we might have while awake.

      • dreams always mystify me, i wish i knew a little more about them. well, i dont think its a realm in which we will ever be able to walk in firm steps, we will have to just assume 🙂

      • Dreams are mystifying! Some that I have had are downright nutty! Some are clearly understood and others are not. Some wake me up with a jolt of fear, some have brought me awake laughing–hey maybe there’s another poem here!

      • Thats what i love about this group. just like intent you will feel unafraid to share your creations. no matter how clumsy they are- when i started to share my paintbrush pix they were quite amateurish, they are even now but back then they were really, really amateurish, some of my friends here encouraged me to practice more.

      • Your paintings are very very good. All the deities that you have been painting recently have been very intricate–I don’t know how you do it. They’re beautiful. That old saying is true–“practice makes perfect”.

        So we both are practicing our craft–and we’re so fortunate to be in the company of such encouraging friends.

        Yay for us!

  15. Dreams are sometimes so real that I can smell where I am, sometime so awful I can’t stand where I am, and sometime so pleasant I can’t believe where I am. I am constantly amazed by them even when they are bad because I at least know when I wake up that it has to be better than that bad one at least! 🙂

    Sometimes I think that dreams are a way we resolve issues subconsiously that we can’t resolve consciously. When we do resolve it, the dreams tend to be more positive until there is something else that needs to be fixed. Great job on this poetry.

  29. I believe dreams are an extension of our subconscious minds… what we avoid thinking or believing in reality, we see in our dreams 🙂

  30. I think you’re right, Kavita. If we won’t pay attention to these things during our “conscious” time, it will show up in our dreams. Many dreams for me have been very indicative of my “waking life”.

    I really appreciate your comment here for me–thanks so much.

    • I’ve seen so often where my dreams reflect my feelings about an issue that I’m not willing to face or really accept as true–such as a relationship that I had doubts about but didn’t want to face the truth. My dreams repeatedly showed me that my intuition was right on! I guess each individual will have to make that call for themselves.

      For me, I pay attention to the clear messages in my dreams–but some of them are completely nonsensical–I have no idea what those are about. 🙂 Just for my amusement perhaps…

      Thanks for your thoughts here–I appreciate it, Kodjo.

    • Thank you for your reflective comment here, June.

      Some of my dreams I remember to this day–that had such a clear message for me. I try to heed my intuition too–I think it is my “higher self” trying to communicate something to me and I better pay attention. It has saved me from some hairy predicaments for sure!
