Why do I dream?

Everyone dreams. Sometimes your dreams make sense to you. Other times, they can be full of riddles and symbols. When you can understand and interpret your dreams, you gain massive wisdom that carries over into your everyday life.

Dreaming is done from the deep subconscious mind. Your brain processes your daily experiences and files them into your memory bank.

Meanwhile, you produce dreams that often relate to your real-life situations. The story may be rewritten strangely but it has meaning to you.

Sometimes, your dreams are so wild that they seem to have come from nowhere! That could be your Higher Self or spiritual clan delivering wisdom to you from the other realm. Pay special attention to these dreams. Don't miss out on important tips and guidance.

Give conscious thought to your subconscious visions and the Universe becomes your playground.
