Why You Should Use The Power Of Your Dreams

You really should take your dreams seriously! They are the expression of the fears, anxieties, hopes and emotions contained in your subconscious mind. They are the symbolic representation of the information that is stored and organized by your subconscious. They are the key to unlocking your future.

You don't always remember your dreams but in fact you dream virtually every night and usually between five and seven times. Over a typical lifetime that adds up to something like six years of dreaming. So doesn't it make sense to be able to grab hold of all their power to help you to achieve your goals?

You simply must learn to set clearly defined goals if you want to carve out a path towards the realisation of your life's ambitions. But equally importantly you must have a plan of how you are going to achieve them. Your path to fulfilling your goals needs a map to sit upon.

You will find many ways of defining your plan but one sure-fire route that is often overlooked is that of using the power of your dreams.

Contained within your subconscious mind are mountains of information that is not readily available to you when you are awake. But your dreaming mind will reveal this hidden source of data. It could be in the form of secret desires or longings. Or maybe unknown inner fears will be discovered which, through the process of dream analysis, you can learn to overcome.

You see, your dreams are an extension of how you really feel about yourself. Once you are able to recall and understand their content you will develop the power to increase your self-knowledge, self-awareness and self-belief.

You will confront and express your inner feelings in your dream state and by learning how to recall them, analyse them and understand them, you will gain a more positive approach and develop your personal skills and qualities.

Your subconscious mind is full of your inner fears and anxieties. It contains many of the reasons why you may worry and have doubts. By recalling and then understanding your dreams you will be better equipped to deal with the more stressful aspects of your life.

You are faced with many decisions each day. Some are simple, like what to eat or what to wear, but there will be many more important decisions to make regarding areas of your life like relationships or your career. Remembering your dreams and analyzing their meaning will reveal the wisdom that will help you to make those life-changing decisions.

Learning to interpret the dreams you have each night can truly open up a route to achieving your goals. But there is more you can do. You can actually learn to influence what you dream about and so be able to focus on the important areas of your life. By concentrating on the goals you have set you can ensure that they are reflected in the content of your dreams. You simply have to make sure that your subconscious mind is loaded with information on the subject concerned.

So during your waking hours find as much time as you can to read about your topic. Watch films and DVDs about the subject and research it on the Internet. Depending on what it is, you may also be able to view maps, photographs or works of art. This will all help to prepare your mind to have dreams relating to your goals.

You can also try visualization. Use it to see yourself as you will be having achieved your ambitions. Look how you feel and examine the benefits you have gained. Try to clearly picture the things around you, especially those material things like cars or houses that may feature in your goals. You will increase the chances of influencing what you dream about by especially using this technique at bed time just before you go off to sleep.

You can also feed your subconscious mind with the right sort of facts and images through the use of positive affirmation. Use short concise statements set in the present tense to reinforce your objectives and repeat them to yourself during the day whenever you can. You should also write them down and leave them in a prominent position so that you can see and read them often. Take one statement relating to one goal at a time and repeat it to yourself as you drift off to sleep each night.

Combine each of these methods and you will soon gain a fuller understanding of your dreams and how you can influence them to help you to achieve your goals. Very soon you will see the benefits as achieving your life goals becomes reality.

So set yourself a new goal today to start using the power of your dreams to help you to achieve your goals.
