dreams cant just be your imagination

many people think differently about this. i've always thought dreams can be connected to the afterlife in some ways.

anyway, i am sometimes exteremely paranoid and i have a history of excessive amounts of anxiety. i dreamt the other night....i saw a man, and he suddenly looked at me, asked 'chris, whats wrong? you dont looke happy!', and i said to him 'there's just so much going on inside of me, i dont know what to do, do you know what i mean?' he calmly said 'yes, i know, please follow me quickly' his voice was very soothing and was relaxing me. we turn through a corridor and then we are standing at the top of a flight of stairs, looking down at where the stairs lead. he tells me 'chris, walk down these stairs with me, things will change, you'll see'. so i start walking down with him, one step as a time. each step i take, i hear a note being played from a piano, each note going lower as i take each step. there are 4 steps to go....and something feels 'weird' inside of me. i suddenly feel this mass inside of my body,as if its going to explode and trickle out at the same time. and then i realise that this mass is pure energy.

do you ever get those realisation moments? its hard to explain, but messages can pop into my head, and its not even like somebody says anything to me, i can suddenly start reciting things, and i dont know what i'm saying, it just comes out...well, i get to the last step, and all i can think of, as my friend is holding hands with me , is this -

"you are anxious because you know how much energy you have inside of you. you are not used to releasing it, however. you are scared of the power you possess. you know you have the power inside you, but you need the confidence to use it" this kept ringing around my head.

my friend then walks me through into a room, and then says "look, chris". i look, there are lots of happy smily people from kids to old people, all different races, sizes etc. my friend said "and look how happy they all are".

i think i need to keep remembering how everyone is different, and it is pointless in being paranoid and anxious about myself. and also how much energy i have inside of me.

this couldnt just be from my head, thats not what i believe anyway.

sorry if this was boring to any of you, but dreams like this make me happy  Smiley

Hi Chris-

I like your post, and I agree with what you said. I had a similar experience.

A few days ago I was meditating on the various kind of reality that might occur, aside from the one we live in, and at the edge of my vision I just barely saw someone jumping up and down. As I expanded my vision to see what was going on, I found that my "everyday reality" image got squeezed, and to the right and left were dozens of alternative realities. A person came out of the one I was looking at and started to tell me jokes, rather a new thing for me in meditation, and I started laughing and then realized that I was conversing with a being from a different reality.  (When I told my wife about it she said that she sees this stuff all the time and what's the big deal?)

Makes me happy too!

I enjoyed your post too, not at all boring! my idea what dreams are, at least the more profound ones that affect us after waking, is that we all go out of body in our awareness while sleeping and interact with friends or teachers or consciousness workers. since it is a nonphysical reality, our brain most often does not have the interpretation down clearly just yet, so we try to help the brain to remember where we've been in awareness at night. we use the symbology that we are used to here to relay the message back to the waking limited consciousness of everyday living. some of these symbols we share in common and some are more personal. here in your dream you have begun to master your fears both here and there. what is left is just plain happy! this dream is very wise and shows you own that wisdom. love, alysia...

Chris, I do believe that dreams that are THAT profound cannot be your imagination. One thing that stands out to me is that most people commonly have "regular" dreams that are a bunch of short sequences that are most likely not remembered in whole...BUT I have had some dreams that were so convincing that it seems almost impossible that it was just my imagination.

I dreamed about my grandfather after he died, and just to give everyone an idea of how much that meant to me, I never met me biological father so my grandfather was like my father...so his death really changed my life and dreaming about him meant so much. Well, in this dream he appeared to me in vivid color...I could see every detail ion his face and I walked up to him and asked him what he was doing here and how much I missed him...he then said to me that everything was ok and he could not stay and I started crying and hugged him and said you cannot leave again because I love you and he replied back to me in a calm and even tone and said don't worry, you will be here soon!

I sware on my life it was the most realistic dream I have ever had in my life (well next to the 2nd dream I had about him in the house he used to live in months later and then never again), and because the context of this dream was really like I was speaking to him, the realism, the color, and the words all were a little too coincidental to be just some random dream. I didn't think of him before going to sleep and since he died I never really dreamt of him.

Ever since then that was around the time I started question life, my existence, the Afterlife, etc. which led me to this board. No coincidence I don't think. The other strange thing was that Alysia recommended a book by Gordon Phinn and shortly after I met the guy online and spoke with him online. All of that in my opinion is too detailed to be concidence, and I believe wholeheartedly that dreams are extensions of our connection to the spirit world....just like sleeping is the closest we get to death before a coma or actual death.

So I thank you for reminding me of that moment and sharing your with everyone, especially since I read this o Father's Day and just had a special moment this morning in hte memory of my grandfather (Donny Hathaway's This Christmas does it everytime). If I find more evidence to support this outside of this board I will share...
