Healing Dreams

What exactly is a Healing Dream? To put it simple, a Healing Dream is a dream in which the dreamer has when they are in need of healing that cure them of their particular ailment. Sounds crazy right? Well there has been many cases of this. It has been documented in history of people who dream their healing and are "magically" healed. Amazing right? If only everyone knew how to preform their own healing through dreams! We wouldn't even need hospitals. Imagine that!

As mentioned earlier there have been many documented cases of Healing Dreams. There have been cases linked back to the Egyptians, the Greek, and even the Chinese. There have also been cases in early Christianity, but was given credit to God or angels for the healing.

The most famous examples come from the pilgrimage to Epidaurus, which is known as one of the largest healing temples in the world. It is a Dream Healing temple in ancient Greece. Records prove that all sorts of ailments and conditions were cured from dreams including chronic illnesses, blindness, and lameness. Dream Healing is even practiced in today's world. Some people have said that an angel visits them and touches them, while others say they are surrounded in glowing light. And there have been others who say that they are given the information of what necessary actions they needed to take in order to improve their healing.

Medical experts have no explanation to the phenomena of Dream Healing. But I do! I say it over and over again, it is the power of the mind! We all have it, and it is extraordinary! The power of our minds can do many things. There is no limit to what we can do if we only believe! Believe in yourself and know that you can achieve anything. You just have to believe it. Positive thinking is the answer. We can do whatever we choose!

Prisoner of the Mind

"Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds."

-Franklin D. Roosevelt

We can live whatever life we want to. Or should I say, we can live whatever life we choose to. Everyday we make choices. Everyday we decide what we will choose to think about, what we will spend our time doing. We can choose to be grateful and enjoy life for everything in it, or we can choose to find fault in everything.

We make up our minds on what we want to focus on, and we live by that idea. As Roosevelt said, we can become 'prisoners of our own minds' if we choose to believe negative ideas. We can focus only on the bad and complain about the problem, or we can look for the good in the situation and move on with our lives. Do not waste time thinking about all the wrong, but enjoy the many pleasant things life has to offer. Look for the good, and choose to be positive. Choose to be thankful for everything. Choose to be a positive inspiration to yourself and others.

What we think about IS our reality. What do you think about regularly? Are you thinking about what you want? Are you imagining it? Don't become a prisoner, become what you've always wanted, what you've always dreamed. What is your dream? Don't let go. It can be your reality. Make it your reality! This life is what you make it.

Precognitive Dreams

Precognition is simply put as seeing the future. So, Precognitive Dreams are dreams that foretell the future, or can predict upcoming events. It is said that 60 percent of all precognition is from dreams. When people are asleep they are relaxed and more in tune with their mind and thoughts. They are more receptive to other forces because they are not busy with other things. The human mind is so powerful and capable of many things.

Many people have have precognitive dreams. In fact, their has been recordings of these dreams since ancient times. The Egyptians were especially known for their dreams. All sorts of people have experienced precognition through dreaming. Some of the most famous dreams have been about tragic events such as assassinations, natural disasters, and different forms of transportation resulting in the death of many. Many of these precognitive dreams are forewarning about the future. Some of the most famous examples include the assassination of presidents Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, and even the assassination of Austria's Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife which caused political strain and started World War I. People had dreams of these assassinations! Most people don't even know that Abraham Lincoln himself dreamed of his own assassination two weeks before it actually happened. Amazing! The wife of Julius Caesar had a dream where Roman senators stabbed a statue of Caesar with knives and blood ran from the statue. Calpernia, his wife told him about the dream and was certain he would die that day! Caesar told his senator, Decius about the dream. Little did he know that Decious was conspiring against him, and that day Caesar was stabbed to death by his enemies.

Other famous dreams involve means of transportation. Many dreams of plane crashes, boats sinking, and even train wrecks. Some of the more famous events that were predicted by dreamers would include the sinking of The Titanic as well as the 9/11 plane crashes. Many people have dreamed these events. Another famous case of precognition due to a dream was by two different individuals regarding the American Airlines crash in 1979. There were 270 people on the plane, all of them were killed. A New York woman, who had actually predicted other disaster before was so concerned about the event taking place actually broad casted her message on the radio trying to warn people in advance. Aother man in Ohio began having his dreams a week before the tragedy. He repeatedly had the same dream for ten nights in a row about this disaster. He called the local office of Federal Aviation Administration and relayed his dream. After the tenth dream he was so shook up about the event that he had trouble focusing at work, and because of it he finally had to leave early at 4pm. At the exact time of 4pm the plane departed and the disaster happened just as he saw in his dream.

There have been many other events that have been predicted as well. One example of a famous natural disaster was in Aberfan, Wales. On October 21, 1966 a landslide of coal mine waste buried a school and killed 28 adults and 116 children. Two weeks before the event took place there were up to 200 people who have had some sort of precognition about the disaster. One of the most disturbing dreams came from one of the students at the school, a young girl. She told her mother when she woke that she dreamed that everyone went to school, but there was no school because something black had come down all over it. She also told her mother she was not afraid to die, because she would be with two other children she knew. And that same day she was killed with the two other children she named. WOW! Isnt' that creepy!?!

The whole point of sharing the stories of Precognition is to inspire others from the power of the mind. We can do so much, so much that we aren't even fully aware of. We have a powerful tool that we should never take for granted. There are so many things we can do if we only put our minds to it. Will power, intellect, and intention are all means that we have access to, we just have to learn how to use them! We can do, have, or be anything. What do you choose to do with your mind? Use it to your advantage!

Take a Bath!

When is the last time you took a nice hot relaxing bath? I kow it has been at least a month or two for me. Taking a warm or hot bath is one of the best natural ways to calm and relax your body. The hot water sooths and calms the muscles in the body, which in turn allows the mind to settle down.

Taking a bath is an at home theropy that we can all practice without spending too much money. We can have our own spa treatment all in the comfort of our own house, right in the bathroom. I always recommend cleaning the tub before taking a bath. Bath tubs and showers can quickly build up soap scum and grime so it is always good to know that the tub is clean  when you are using it. I also highly recommend if you have any bubble bath or bath oils to indulge in it! This is the time to go all out on yourself. Take the time to pamper yourself every now and again and you will see the results not only in your stress levels, but even your body. You body will loosen up and just be more relaxed overall. And lastly I suggest some candles for two reasons. One, the low lighting effect will help your body and mind settle itself. And two, the smell. When we smell pleasant aromas it triggers good thoughts and memories, which of course is another way of allowing us to unwind. Ever heard of aroma theropy? Well that is another article in itself, but I am sure you can get the gist of it. Now some people like to play music too. Personally, I like the silence so I can just sit in the moment, feel the warmth, and just quietly think to myself. But if music really helps you unwind, a quiet, calm instrumental piece would probably be most appropriate. Just don't let it distract you from the purpose of the activity. And when you take this bath, make sure you have the time and that you will be left alone in peace. You do not want to be interrupted or rushed during your bath. Just take your time and truely relax. Be thankful for the opportunity and think of all of the wonderful things that have been taking place in your life. This is a great time for positive thinking and imagination. Whatever comes to mind, just make sure to keep it light and positive.

There is nothing that compares to a nice warm bubble bath. No matter who you are, man or woman, take the time every now and then to enjoy the simple pleasure of relaxation. A bath is a great way to let loose and relax your muscles. Calm your mind, and calm your body. Little things like this will help your everyday actions. Stay positive. Stay happy. Stay healthy!

Imagination is Everything

"Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life's coming attractions."

-Albert Einstein

Imagination is one of the key principles to attracting what we desire into our lives. Imagination goes hand in hand with positive thinking and is recommended by every author or speaker dealing with the Law of Attraction. If we can visualize and see what we want then we are that much more likely to come by it. When are able to see what it is that we want exactly then we can start to sense how it would really feel being in our lives.

We are taught as kids to imagine. We could imagine anything and everything. We had everything we needed in our imagination. We could see a different reality, the reality that we wanted, and nothing could change our thinking. We are encouraged to continue practicing now as adults. If we can see what we want, if we can feel it, and believe that it is real then it will surely come our way. They say that imagination is one of the best tools for attracting the things that you want in your life. The reason is because our brains cannot distinguish between a false reality and the truth. And whatever our dominant thoughts are will determine what we are attracting to our lives.If you want a big house, start imagining it, down to the smallest detail. Imagine yourself coming up the driveway. What does your house look like? Is it brick or stone? What color is it? Imagine yourself walking through the front door. What do you see when you walk in? Is is carpet or tile? Is there a large staircase or a beautiful chandelier? Know what you want in great detail. And know it up and down, backward and forward. The more you imagine the more real it seems, and that is where you need to get to. If you want to go on a vacation, imagine yourself doing it. Where is it that you want to go? What sites do you want to see? Are you staying in a hotel or cabin? Are you on the beach? Can you feel the wind? Or the sand in your toes? How about that margarita? "MMM... it's it delicious!" There are so many options, so many choices that you could imagine. But you have to take the time to think about it. You must know what it is exactly that you want, be very specific.

Imagination! Use it as a tool in your life. It will bring you your desires. Keep practicing. When your positive thoughts become dominant then you will see what you can attract in your life. Don't give up, it's out there. Anything you could want and imagine. It is all possible if you only believe.

Big Deal

Ask yourself - "Is it really a big deal?" To be frank so many times, in so many instances we tend to overreact about our problem or situation. We are so used to reacting to situations based on what we have been taught. We have been taught by society that we are supposed to react a certain way when something happens.

Many times we react before we can even stop and really think about the issue and ask ourselves "Is this really a big deal?" "Is this something worth getting upset over?" "Is this really what I want to spend my energy on, let alone time?" If it really is an important issue, by all means feel the emotion and make it worth your while. But if its really not that big of a deal, then just let it go. This is something I have really been trying to practice lately. And it has been making a difference in my life. I am really starting to notice when I dwell on a subject that isn't positive how much stress it causes me. Then I notice how I feel when I am in those situations, and it isn't good. And I can see the effects in my complexion as well. I can see direct results not only in my life, but my body as well depending on how I am feeling.

So lately I have really been thinking in my mind when something is bothering me. I think to myself "Is this really what I want to be thinking about? Is this really a big deal?" And you know sometimes I will think about the issue for just a few minutes and I will say, "This isn't really that big of a deal. Get over it!" And I move on and forget about it. Other times I will think about an issue for hours and still be infuriated or upset about the issue, and at that moment it is a big deal. And then after a few hours I feel differently about the issue and move on from there. And then there are times when something will bother you for a really long time. And those are the times when you feel bad, you are stressed out, even depressed. Those are the moments when nothing can change what you are feeling. Only when you are ready will things change for you. Everything depends on your attitude and how you choose to deal with your situation. What are you choosing to think about? Are you focusing on the bad? Or are you looking at the good in every person or situation? The answers to these questions are what will affect your reality. What are you choosing to focus on? Ask yourself "Is this really a big deal?"

You will start to notice how many choice you have, and in time you will find yourself letting a lot of things go. Its just not worth it to dwell on something and let it bother you. You will feel so much better if you learn to let things go, or deal with them in a more positive manner. I tell myself in my head "So what? Big Deal. Get over it!" And when you can move on, you feel that much better. There are so many other topics or positive ideas that you can be thinking about instead. You choose what you think about. Make the choices and change your thoughts.
