Do Dreams Have Meaning? Here are 7 Interpretations.

Do dreams have meaning or are they by-chance? Can dreaming serve a higher purpose in life? Here are 7 spiritual and psychological interpretations of dreams.

I’ve always been a vivid dreamer. And after my spiritual journey began, I started noticing the different types of experiences these dreams were bringing for me. I was also able to remember them even hours after waking up. I began to wonder – do dreams have meaning?

So, I started keeping a Dream Diary next to my bed. And sometimes, I would wake up several times through the night, just jotting down messages that my subconscious was throwing at me. Later in the morning, I would sit down and reflect on what the dream could mean.

Years into dream analysis and interpretation, it is thus my understanding, that dreams are a very powerful gateway into our subconscious mind. They can come to us with many different reasons. So, here is my attempt to explain them to you, with my own personal experiences.

#1 – Dreams that Predict the Future

Rare but not impossible, sometimes you will realize that you recognize a place, person or event. Because it happened in your dreams first!

Some real-life examples of prophecies in my own life include :

  • My mom envisioning I’d say yes to get married on a whim, and that I’d be head over heels in excitement, whereas the guy would be calm and peaceful. That is EXACTLY what happened at the time we both said yes to each other. Which was literally within 24 hours of meeting and spending time together! And I was the excited kid that couldn’t stop grinning, whereas he played it super cool.
  • Me dreaming of a giant temple. And several months later visiting Haridwar with my family to randomly walk through this temple, and being able to tell my parents exactly what would come next as we walked up the stairs. It was surreal!
  • One morning, when I was supposed to lock my room to go visit my parents for the weekend, I woke up dreaming of water leaking in the kitchen. I went outside, groggy and rolling my eyes at how superstitious I was being. But sure enough, overnight, the piping from upstairs had leaked through the kitchen and the wall was growing increasingly damp by the minute. Mishap managed!

#2 – Dreams for Healing and Closure 

Whether you see your ex lover hugging you after a terrible breakup, or your passed-away loved-one that’s meeting you to affirm that they’re doing okay, dreams can help us reconnect with souls that are not physically around us due to the present circumstances.

Pair, Dreams, Luck, Together, Friendship

This is also depicted beautifully in the mystical book, Immortal Talks : Part 1. In the book, two souls reconnect with each other in a dream. And then, the healing they needed to receive through meeting in person, was achieved on the astral plane.

#3 – Dreams with Divine Guidance

Our conscious mind is very skeptical, so dreams are a perfect opportunity for us to gain insight from the Spiritual Realms. Many famous artists including Stephen King, Maya Angelou and children’s writer E.B. White admit that their best works came to them during their sleep!

Brain, Think, Communication, Intelligent, Subconscious Mind

Some interesting incidents from my own, personal collection include :

  • The time at work when I got a dream for a solution to a problem, which I tried and the issue really got resolved! I even told my team lead about this, and to not give me the credit because it wasn’t ME.
  • Before I met my husband, I kept seeing signs of “Canada” and the name “Sagar” wherever I would look. I didn’t understand any of this, and I had no intentions of moving, so I kept ignoring the message. Then one day, in my dreams, I saw a figure merge into my husband, and tell me I am meant to go to Canada. This, along with a conversation with my cousin sister sparked the idea of finally meeting my future husband!

Infact, this analysis about finding the Divine Light in dark times, was what compelled my friend to wake up in the early hours of her day and share the divine guidance.

#4 – Dreams to Purge Subconscious Fears

Our dreams can help us face our innermost hidden fears. You may see nightmares and awful things which you fret might happen in real life. This is the type of dreaming science most often talks about.

Dreams have Meaning, Nightmare, Phobia, Dreaming, Unreal, Fear, Subconscious, Dream interpretation

Like I mentioned in the beginning, when I started seeing more nightmares than ever, using a Dream Diary to write down what you saw right after you wake up, can help with interpretting these dreams. This is a significant step to heal your mind and heart, and become a braver, more loving person.

#5 – Clearing Karmic Debts Beyond THIS Life

We are not limited to our human life, as you’d know by now. Our mind may sleep but our soul is always working. For instance, dreaming of a romantic relationship with someone else while you’re already happily married is NOT an indication of infidelity, but more likely an old connection that’s being completed through the astral plane.

You may also experience traveling to different realities where things are more beautiful, or time-traveling.

Fantasy, Wanderer, Sculpture, Monument

These are lesser explored areas myself, but I am a believer of parallel universes and that’s how I interpret what happens when say, I’m dreaming of a High-Techlife that Earth has nothing remotely close to achieved.

These are all ways of clearing your karma, and making the most of your soul’s learning plan.

#6 – Manifestating Reality through Your Dreams

People who train themselves in self-healing through Lucid Dreaming have confessed that they have manifested wonderful things for themselves by working in their sleep, including no longer needing to wear specks!

Here’s an awesome video that explains what happens in Lucid Dreaming.

#7 – Seeing Past Lives

To me, there are a couple of characteristics that affirm whether a dream was a past life or not. These include:

  • The dream makes logical sense, and it’s like seeing a real-life story from a different time, except you’re in it.
  • The dream vividly stays with you days, weeks and years after you first saw it.
  • It connects dot in your current life and helps you heal an aspect you weren’t previously able to.

I started seeing past lives in my dreams only after I took my first hypnotherapy session for a past life regression. A few months after, the dreams began and they have helped me to continue healing in the most profound ways.

One such memorable dream was about being abducted as a child, and kept in a house where two women took care of me. One was my grandmother in this life, and another was a lady I didn’t recognize.

One day, when I visited the Bangla Saheb Gurudwara in New Delhi, a lady on a wheelchair called for me to feed her. As I sat next to her and put one bite after another in her mouth, I started crying profusely.

Old Woman, Desert, Old Age, Bedouin, Dry

There was an intense connection and only later did I understand why. She fed me before, and I fed her as we met again. Our Karmic bond was completed.

Final Thoughts : Do Dreams Have Meaning?

I want to end with the thought, that if we spend a third of our lives sleeping, and a sixth of it dreaming, shouldn’t there be an actual basis behind these dreams?

Shouldn’t there be something much deeper at play, that we tend to brush off as a coincidence?

Do Dreams Mean Anything? Here are 7 Spiritual Interpretations.

Telepathy : Is Mind-Reading Real?

Is telepathy a coincidence or real? How does mind-reading work? Can we choose our thoughts? And more.

The corniest example of ‘telepathy’ can be seen in couples that seem to know what the other is thinking, even before something is said.

Some other hopefully relatable examples of telepathy, that happened to me over the last couple of days are :

  • Wanting to eat a specific food, and my mom preparing it for dinner, without me mentioning it to her!
  • Walking with a friend, and thinking about ending the walk, only to find them saying so too.
  • On a long drive, thinking about halting for a pee-break, and another friend immediately saying the same thing aloud.
  • Thinking about drinking water and my roommate handing my a water bottle in the very next moment.

It makes you wonder – did we get lucky in the moment, or is something deeper happening which we can’t explain because we don’t understand?

Dice, Double, Six, Gamble, Game, Lucky

Is Telepathy a Coincidence or Real?

Let’s take a step back and talk about the origin of our thoughts.

Have you ever noticed where your thought originated from? Sometimes, we latch onto a thought and begin creating more thoughts generated from this original thought.

For example, one day, you might wonder what you will have for dinner, and then immediately remember you haven’t met your friend in a while, so you should plan dinner together sometime.

So then, you wonder why your friend hasn’t talked to you in a while.

And then, you create your own conclusions about how they’ve ‘changed’ or that they’re probably mad at you. BAM!

Broken dinner plans for tonight.

Broken, Heart, Love, Red, Romance

Now you’re in a bad mood, perhaps even experiencing a trigger of abandonment issues. You may continue to think more disappointing thoughts now.

It’s an endless cycle, you see? And in this case – a downward spiral.

As Buddha says, we are not our thoughts. Thoughts come and go. So what is happening?

Based on the frequency that we are functioning on at a given point of time, a Thought Bubble (as Eckhart Tolle calls them) will be interpreted accordingly. So if you’re already in a bad mood, no matter what thought bubble you catch, your inner filter will make you feel worse.

What is the relation between Thought Bubbles with Telepathy?

When two people spend time together, and are getting along well – their frequency is beginning to align. Therefore, for the different thought bubbles, sometimes, two people may catch the same one at the same time, and look at it in the same way.

Dark, Fireworks, Hands, Lights, Macro, Connection, Spark, Telepathy

Which leads me to the next question.

Can You Choose Your Thoughts?

While in meditation you are asked to observe your thoughts, it is difficult to continue observation throughout the day when you’re more actively involved in activities.

What you can do, however, is to stay conscious of the frequency you are in.

Brain, Mind, Psychology, Idea, Drawing, Thoughts, Telepathy

Don’t monitor your thoughts, instead, monitor your response to your thoughts. Your body language, your mood, your inner turmoil should be very obvious indicators of the frequency you are operating in.

That’s how people that practice gratitude are more likely to find something good in everything.

Closing Thoughts (pun intended)

An original thought is neutral. Your inner filter is what makes it positive or negative. Therefore, you should and can be in absolute control of your thoughts, by being mindful of the filter that processes them.

And now we know, there’s nothing woo-woo when two people share the same thought bubbles. Telepathy is infact a beautiful form of the Universe’s synchroncities.

Be grateful for these little winks from the cosmos, telling you, you are in alignment with existence. 🙂

Soul Plan Reading with Annalisa

I got a Soul Plan Reading done, and here’s everything you need to know before you get yours!

I became intrigued with the term, Soul Plan, as soon as my friend and healer, Anna mentioned it. She was kind enough to prepare my Soul Plan Reading shortly after our conversation. And, it turned out to be quite impressive!

During the reading, Annalisa revealed things about my personal traits and behaviors that she couldn’t have known, because I myself hadn’t seen so many of them that way, consciously. The accuracy was uncanny. This girl knows her stuff, mhmm!

I was so impressed, I asked her if she’d let me share this with my audience, to help spread awareness about this empowering spiritual method.

Here’s everything you’d want to know, to get a reading done for yourself. First, I want Annalisa to explain what this reading is about.

WHAT is a Soul Plan Reading?

Soul Plan Reading is a practical and energetic way of finding out the purpose of our (soul) life in this reincarnation.

This is a great method for anyone that feels stuck in life, is experiencing challenges that they don’t know how to overcome, or in general want to discover their soul purpose.

NOTE : All information that is retrieved and discussed about the inidividual’s soul plan is kept highly confidential at all times.

Team, Feedback, Confirming, Office

What is the origin/source of this reading?

In 1950’s Frank Alper channeled this method through the soul of Moses. This is a numerology system. It takes in the 22 characters of the Hebrew alphabet and draws in elements of the Kabbalah, Tarots and Astrology, using the 5 pointed star called “the Star of David”.

What can you expect from getting your Soul Plan read?

There are a couple of steps, and to summarize,

  • First, this very accurate method will give a reading through our birth name as it appears on the birth certificate. The reading reveals our spiritual and worldly challenges, talents and goals together with our soul destiny.
    Note: Nicknames, changes of names will also be taken into the reading as part of an inlay reading. This adds deeper insights and information on the client soul path.
  • Second, it will also provide healing affirmations and a soul message.
  • Third, the end of the reading is called Grace Clearing. This step ensures any energetic blockage gets cleared to fulfill the purpose of our soul with ease and courage.

It’s worth noting, that the soul plan practitioner also channels insights and intuitions on what the individual needs to work on. Also, it can be revealed if there is resistance on certain challenges or some talents haven’t been developed yet.

The soul plan practitioner also channels insights and intuitions on what the individual needs to work on.

By having a reading, the client will benefit consciously or unconsciously of great changes on an energetic level. On a more practical level, it explains about personality traits, career opportunities and ultimately how to fulfill the soul purpose.

Preparing for the Soul Plan Reading

Now, talking about my personal experience.

Once you share your name with the soul plan practitioner, the Soul Plan takes a couple of days to prepare. Then, it is discussed over phone, video call or in person if you’re geographically close to the reader. There’s nothing else we need to do other than that!

The duration of the phone call was exactly 1 hour, 12 minutes and 12 seconds long (synchronicity, yay) for me! But this can be shorter, depending on the conversation.

The Soul Plan Reading takes a couple of days to prepare, after which it is discussed over phone, video call or in person.

I’m quite inquisitive, so hats off to Anna for dealing with me so patiently!

The Actual Experience

About 10 minutes into the session, I knew this reading was Divine Intervention. I started getting answers to personal questions I had been stuck with for a long time.

I found all sorts answers, ranging from my own health, to relationships, life purpose and connection to the Universe.

  • One fun personal instance, was the insight that my left nostril is likely to get blocked if I resist my reality.

    This may sound ridiculous but this is BANG ON. More than half the time, I only breathe properly through one nostril, my right one. I couldn’t stop laughing from amazement and amusement when she told me this.
  • Not just that, another insight that stunned me was that the energy of my numbers indicated my laziness. It was a life challenge to be overcome, by becoming more physically active. Anyone that knows me can validate how much I excel for mental tasks but struggle with getting off my arse.
    Strike two for me!
Lazy, Son, Student, Home, Mother, Woman
  • Third and most importantly, Anna confidently explained that I can take up roles in leadership, vocal trainings and workshops, writing or business, and they’d ALL do me really well.

    As someone who totally sucked at YouTube several years ago, and previously only revealed this to my husband about wanting to do a TED talk one day, I had goosebumps. The reading brought me faith, and gave me butterflies!

Clearly, the insights were being sourced from something much higher and beyond either one of us.

Final Thoughts

The Soul Plan Reading was an inspiring revelation that gave me the final push to step up as a Spiritual Writer, and start giving my ALL to the My Spiritual Shenanigans blog.

The Soul Plan Reading was an inspiring revelation that gave me the final push to step up as a Spiritual Writer, and start giving my ALL to the My Spiritual Shenanigans blog.

It provided an increased sense of awareness for many things I hadn’t observed in myself before, and to see many of my own shortcomings as actual soul challenges that I was meant to overcome all along.

The affirmations discussed at the end of the reading were also shared with me over email, along with a channeled message from Source, and I still get goosebumps reading them.

Most importantly, this reading was a gentle reminder that everything is ultimately a part of our Soul Contract.

I might sound biased because Annalisa is also my friend, but the truth is, she doesn’t know me at a level where she could have come up with this reading on her own. So to me, this was as authentic and insightful as it gets.

If you’re interested to book your own reading, and want to work with Anna, drop her a query at her blog, The Reiki Sense.
