A Dream is a wish your heart makes
A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you will lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true
To borrow shamelessly from Cinderella, a dream is a wish your heart makes when your fast asleep. When we sleep the spirit within is able to communicate to our consciousness, to give us inspiration and insight, wisdom and encouragement. Our dreams are a very precious part of us and often speak to us of what our tomorrows hold, or our yesterday’s mean. They are also very private and personal and when you share them you open yourself to the interpretations of others which often do not apply to you and your journey. Those who offer insight and meaning only speak from their own experiences, and those have no meaning personally to you. The true meaning will often give you greater insight into you and your own journey … and the ah-ha moment will have meaning just to you alone. Because dreams are so delicate and the messages so personal the wrong interpretation or advice can be hurtful and, in many ways, slow down your progress. The caution here is not only to be careful who you share with but also to what you say to others about their dreams …it is very easy to misinterpret or to destroy someone else’s dream by applying your own criteria to them or by trying to lovingly add your own insight and wisdom to their lives.
Dreams are precious insights and should be treated as such, no matter how unusual they may be. They were made just for you, by your inner spirit and if the meaning isn’t readily apparent its one only you can decipher. Treasure them for they do hold magic and hope, elements not readily apparent in days that are difficult. Sometimes, hope, wishes and dreams are all we have to hold onto, and they are a very precious type of life preserver when there is little else to hold onto.
