Dreams. We all have them, whether we remember them or not. Some are extremely intense, some are scary, and some make people happy. Some of us believe that some dreams are premonitions or communications from spirit guides, animal guides, or ancestors.
There are a lot of ways to look at dreams and their meanings. If you go to Google, you can find all kinds of websites that help you figure out what certain things mean that you dreamed about. http://www.dreammoods.com/dreamdictionary/ is a site I use quite a lot when I cannot figure out what my dreams are trying to tell me.
It is believed in certain belief systems and cultures, (like Native Americans, Pagans, and a lot of Asian and Africans), that animal totems can bring messages to you through dreams. http://www.whats-your-sign.com/dream-animal-totem.html is a great site to check out if this subject interests you, or if you have had animals/insects/etc that have shown up more than once.
I have always found them fascinating and I have interpreted many of my own and many for my friends. I truly feel that the gods, animals, and the universe in general do their best to communicate with us through our dreams as well as out in Nature, but that’s another subject for another blog ;).
Namaste & Blessings,
