Did you know that your own dreams have the power to heal? And you can tap into that power simply by asking for a dream to help you.

ImageI proved that to myself some years ago. I had an annoying sty on my eye. It was painful, and nothing was shifting it. So as a last resort, I called on my inner spirit to send me a dream to heal it. This is the dream I had that night:

I was walking along a city street. An old friend of mine appeared, and asked why I was wearing dark glasses. I said it was to hide this awful sty – and took them off to show him. He peered at my eyes and said ‘But there’s no sty!’ I looked at my reflection in a plate-glass window – and saw that he was right. The sty had gone!

Next morning it was almost completely dried up. A day later it had disappeared. I just knew that the dream I’d had in response to my plea had somehow cured it.

Dreams can also heal more deep-seated problems than that. Chronic asthma had troubled a friend of mine for most of his life. He’d tried everything to cure it, but to little effect. So he was happy to try asking for a dream that might help.

He dreamed of being back in a medieval castle. As he lay sleeping in bed, someone crept into his room and began to smother him with a pillow. He said he vividly recalled the panic he felt at not being able to breathe.

Then, suddenly, he decided to fight back. He kicked his assailant, making him lose his grip for a few precious moments, and was able to gasp in huge breaths of air. In the dream, the air made him grow bigger and stronger with every breath. His attacker took fright at that and ran away. He said he had a wonderful feeling that he’d now grown beyond being smothered in any way – either physically or emotionally.

In the weeks that followed he said his asthma reduced so much it was hardly noticeable any more. When I next saw him, I asked how that was going. He said jokingly ‘What asthma? Never heard of it!’

Dreams can even heal a broken heart. A woman I know was desperately sad after losing the man she thought was the love of her life. Nothing was helping her to get over it. She agreed to try asking for a dream to help without having much faith that it would work.

ImageA dream soon came to her in which she was standing facing her lost love. They were in a large formal garden, standing near to a maze. He had two gifts that he could give her. One was a Valentine-type box of chocolates, in the shape of a red heart. That was the gift she wanted. The other was just a plain box. That was the one he gave her.

She was so disappointed she wasn’t even going to open it – but he told her she’d be pleased if she did. So with some difficulty, she opened that box. Inside was a beautiful crystal talisman. It was in the shape of a heart. She said she realised right away that it made the Valentine heart look cheap and tacky in comparison.

She held the talisman to her heart and could feel it giving her strength, and connecting her with the wisdom of the higher heart. She knew it was a greater gift than the chocolate box could ever have been. This was the result of a soul contract they’d decided between them in the between-life worlds. Soul mates aren’t always romantic partners – but they will always be faithful to the higher bond between you.

Next day she said that although she still felt sad, at a deep level she understood why things had turned out the way they did. After that, her pain faded more quickly than she expected.

Dreams heal holistically, working at the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical levels all at the same time. This is why they are so effective. The Ancient Egyptians knew this, and regularly used the power of dreams to cure a wide range of issues.

ImageJust as they did, you can ask for a dream to help you with any problem in your life. This is called ‘incubating a dream’ – but I think ‘asking for a dream’ is a better way to describe it.

The dreams you get in reply don’t have to be lucid. They are just as effective if you recall them like any other dream. When you’ve asked for one, keep a notepad by your bed and write your dreams down while you still remember them.

This is a wonderful resource – and it’s freely available to everyone. Everyone I know who tried this said it not only helped them solve a problem; it also set them off on an exciting new journey of discovery. May it be so for you as well.

I’d be delighted to hear from anyone who’d like to share their healing dream experiences.
