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
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
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
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
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
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 that follows!
