UBC 4 - AtoZ - Dreams


Day 4 of the Ultimate Blogging Challenge and the letter D for the  AtoZ Blogging Challenge

Also linking to Bloggers for Life's Friday prompt - Dreams

D is for ... Dreams

Dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's questions ~ Edgar Cayce

is the quote that jumped out at me so I will make that the basis of my post today.

But I thought I would do something different, so here is an acrostic poem reflecting the essence of the quote.


Desires lived in sleep state

Revelations of one's life

Ethereal visions of future possibilities

Aha moments, affirmations of doubts and thoughts

Messages from beyond, usually ones that are needed by us.

Secrets of the soul shown


I often get messages in dreams that initially make no sense and then suddenly one day the message unravels, the dots join up. So I keep a dream journal and jot down the very vivid dreams.

A few days ago, I had the strangest dream ...

I was at work (though I don't know where I was working) and was to attend a meeting. I went from room to room and each time I walked in I was greeted with "this is not where you are meant to be".

My last 3 projects got cancelled and that left me every 5 -7 months, looking for a new job (yep I'm back to searching again).

That had got me thinking that perhaps it is time to change direction and do something different. Perhaps I'm not on the right path and that my life's work lies somewhere else (in fact I am certain that my life's work lies somewhere else).

And I think my dream was affirming for me and telling me it is time to step into that.

If only I knew how to make that change! I look forward to that dream that shows me the way.

And I'm grateful that the Universe converses.

Wishing you all dreams come true.

Warm Regards

  1. Suzy, I'm not one who remembers her dreams on a consistent basis, but I did have some last night which your words written here jolted them to the forefront. You made me realize there is much going on in the world, in my life, and in my country to which I must pay heed.
    Love and blessings to you!

  3. I've always been fascinated with dreams, and pored through books by Freud and Jung. An author I love has a book out on dream interpretation today on my blog. Check out the post here: Damyanti @Daily(w)rite

  4. That's interesting. Like you, have seen many people who have very vivid dreams, can remember minute details and interpret it too. As for me... I can't remember my dreams after waking up. But I guess, the dreams speak a lot. Recently an acquaintance attended a workshop on dreams interpretation...

    1. Hi AMummys Life, sometimes our dreams are random, then years later an aha moment occurs!

  6. I dream a lot--and have always had those "big" dreams. I think sometimes they are gifts to guide us...and only we know when that one dream comes along to which we must pay attention. :) Sounds like you had one of those dreams!!

    Cheers, Jenn.

    1. So true Jenn - not all dreams have a message. I think there was definitely a message in mine.

  7. You know Suzy, I miss my dreams these days. Mommmy to an infant who is a really light sleeper, leaves me with no time or mind space to dream. But I've had dreams that have shown me the way too. Several in fact, including one that helped me make up my mind about my now-husband.

    Cheers, or should I say Dream on!

  19. I think the hardest dreams to understand are exactly the ones that indicate where we need to go. we may not understand them at first, but when the moment comes, we will say ah yes. Many years ago, I had a dream about a person whom I had never seen or met before, but I felt he was to become someone very important to me. And guess what?! we did meet and now we have been together for almost 5 years.

  21. Hi Suzy, I am a fellow UBC blogger.

    I love your poem, to me it serves as a great definition for dreams.

    I have very vivid dreams that answer a lot of questions stirring in my mind or from my prayers.

    When I was in high school I had a dream that told me to slow down when striving for success or reaching a goal. That dream comes back when I try too hard. It always puts things into perspective. I liken it to a gut instinct-follow through on that instinct.

  22. I believe the universe contacts us in dreams because we're more open and accepting there ... and even the dreams we don't remember get into our psyche and influence us at a deeper level. Great post!

  25. I've always found dreams to be fascinating and have fun looking things up on dream websites. Last night I had a dream about my husband and I gliding around a party visiting with everyone there. It was fun. I guess I should look that one up.

  28. For me dreams have been a mystery - some times I remember, sometimes i don't remember the dreams, in my early years I used to always dream of falling, I used to get worried, and in another dream I used to always miss the train in my dream, I never attempted to interpret.

    I used to have conversations with very close friends in my dream, and would get up happy ! the last time I dreamt of losing my son (who is no more) at a shrine, and found myself searching for him.. I got up sad and nervous and I wrote a blog post. Dreams do tell us about our lives, I pray and hope you are led in the direction you desired for ... wishing you peace & blessings !
