When Dreams Aren’t Just Dreams

Question from a reader

“I have about 7 dream interpretation books. I have searched online, but can find no answer for this dream. I dreamed a healer was blowing a deep orange energy, like a mist, into my mouth through a tube as I lay in bed. It seemed to be a transference of energy. But what does that mean, exactly?”

Dreams aren’t always only symbolic. In some cases they can be very literal. The feeling I get about your experience is that it wasn’t necessarily a dream.

If you haven’t already, pick up a copy of Dolores Cannon’s The Custodians and have a read. It will give you some insight as to how and why some of us have those sort of experiences.

I had a dream somewhat like yours – not in content, but in context – a few years ago. I dismissed it as just a weird dream, until I read about several of the elements of it in The Custodians. It gave me an entirely new perspective (and gave some credence to some things that someone told me during a reading, once).

As for the dream itself, given that the energy was orange, I would associate that with the sacral chakra, so do some research on that particular chakra, the parts of the body it governs, the emotions that are associated with it, etc. and see if any of them apply to you.

Some other types of dreams that may not just be symbolic:
