Whether you currently remember your dreams or not, science has shown that everyone dreams.

Dream study is a practice that goes back to at least 3,000 B.C. Many cultures throughout history have viewed dreams as a powerful way to receive divine guidance and assistance.

Modern psychology proposed that dreams are a way to access unconscious thoughts and feelings that are interfering with healthy and happy functioning.

I believe dreams are a source of divine guidance as well as an opportunity to explore and evolve unconscious patterns.

I’ve been keeping a dream journal for more than 20 years and have found dreams to be a huge benefit in every area of my life, including relationships.

The following true stories show how dreams provide us with protection and insight.

Dream guidance to stop dating a person.

“Sarah” had a dream that warned her away from a man she’d been dating. “John” was very secretive and always leaving to make phone calls when they were out.

Sarah dreamed John pulled up in a big, black ominous car. In the dream, it gave her the willies.

Soon after, they broke up. Sarah later learned that several women had taken out an order of protection because John was physically abusive to them.

She was grateful for the dream that encouraged her to end the relationship.

Dreams can also help us to recognize the right person for us.

“The best way to remember your

dreams is to write them down.”

Dream guidance of a future spouse.

“Karen” had been married and divorced before. She was ready to remarry and wanted to make sure she ended up with the right person.

She asked to be shown in a dream the man she would marry so she could recognize him.

Here’s Karen’s dream:

“I was at a baseball game. My husband was sitting on my right, but I couldn’t see what he looked like. A couple behind us was talking about vitamins. I turned and said, ‘I couldn’t help hearing you. If you want some help with that, my husband can help you.’ Then I turned to my husband and said, ‘Give me one of your cards, honey,’ and I handed it to the couple.”

After the dream, Karen asked her closest girlfriends to keep an eye out for a single health practitioner – chiropractor, naturopath, whatever.

Two years after the dream, she reconnected with a man from her past who had just graduated from acupuncture school. They were married six months later!

Start with a dream journal.

The best way to begin remembering your dreams and using their helpful information is to write down anything you remember – a word, feeling, image – as soon as you wake up. Write it in your dream journal that you keep beside your bed.

Before you know it, you’ll be remembering more and more.

Next, you can start posing a question you’d like some guidance on before you go to sleep. Again, record anything you remember no matter how strange.

With some practice, you’ll begin to receive lots of good information. And perhaps you’ll even meet your future mate in your dream!

Has a dream ever helped you make a decision about your personal relationships? I’d love to hear some of the dreams you’ve had!
