Dreams--Clues to Your Heart?
by Diane Eble, CHCCP and editor of The Healing Code
Have you ever had a dream that somehow seemed important, but you
didn't know why?
It may be a message from your heart about
what needs to be healed.
I have long been fascinated by dreams, ever since
college days when I studied Carl Jung's ideas on dreams and the symbols of the "collective unconscious." I was a
literature major, so images and symbols fascinated me.
Now, as a Healing Codes Practitioner, I hear from
clients who sometimes tell me their dreams, and I'm struck by how often the dreams give clues to heart
issues that need to be healed.
For instance, one woman shared this
dream: "I was a young girl and was attacked by a tiger, but it seemed to only give me a tiny surface
scratch on my upper arm. Later in the dream, I lifted up my sleeve and the wound was HUGE and festering and
disgusting and dangerous and I knew it would kill me if I didn't heal it! And in the dream I had not been at all
aware what was going on under my shirt sleeve! I thought the 'wound' was 'nothing' until I 'uncovered' the wound
and learned it was actually horribly infected and was killing me! My mother and brother were in that dream (key
players in my hurtful childhood). Obviously, it was full of symbolism about the pictures of the heart
(things that seemed small when they happened are really festering and deadly if not dealt with using the Healing
Codes!). Pretty cool, huh?"
This client was becoming adept at seeing
the connection and receiving the message from her heart. In fact, she also shared this (see if you can
make a connection between this and her dream): "Interestingly, I am suddenly able to do the 'kindness' code in the
Healing Codes manual! I was in complete denial about that one up until after I had done your
last custom code! Suddenly, it was absolutely clear to me that the 'kindness' issue was one of my MAJOR
problems! Suddenly, I could see how all the 'problems' connected with the 'kindness' issue DO apply to me
perfectly! SO STRANGE that I could NOT see that before! I just refused to acknowledge it and refused to see how
any of that applied to me. It's obvious now. So I have been focusing on the 'kindness' code from the HC manual
since the last custom code 'expired' and I can REALLY feel things happening inside of me!"
After she had the dream, and had used the
custom Healing Code I gave her, this client was able to break through and work on an issue that may well have been
at the core of her most troublesome issues.
See how it all works? A custom code "jump
starts" healing to the point where the heart can begin to trust that, if it opens the door and lets some memories
out, they will be healed rather than cause more hurt. (As The Healing Code explains, the role of the heart is to protect you from further
emotional pain.) Once some memories are healed, the heart offers up more. Those are healed, and you begin a
beautiful spiral upwards toward fullness of life.
Often a client will tell me that they have no memories. Here is where dreams can be especially helpful. Here's the
key: Use your dream as the "memory" you are healing. Identify the feelings from the dream, and insert
in the prayer of intention, where you would normally put the memory: ". . . from the dream about. . .
If you have had recurring dreams, pay attention! Try healing "the [feeling(s)" from the dreams
about. . ." Again, these are clues from the heart about something that needs to be healed.
If you feel "stuck" in
any way, start telling your heart that you will pay attention to your dreams. Try to remember them when
you awake, and even write down any dream that feels especially vivid.
Feelings and images are
the things to pay attention to. This is not at all about "if you dream about such and such it means
this will happen." It's about what feelings your dream calls up, and the images from the dream. They are
images that will mean something to you. For instance, the "tiger" in my client's dream could be any
number of things. We had to explore what that symbol meant for her. If you had a similar dream, the tiger
might mean something completely different.
So welcome your dreams, and the healing
