Advice: Connect with Departed Loved Ones in Dreams

throughfogDear Kajama:
In a recent email reply to me, you stated that there are many things that I can do to both remember my dreams and to consciously manifest the dream experiences I desire. (I very much want to connect with a departed loved one via my dreams, but I doubt that I dream at all since I can never remember my dreams.) Can you please elaborate and help me understand how I can work with my dreams so that I can be successful in connecting with my beloved angel Sam? I desperately want to dream of him so that I can be with him one more time. Thanks for all of your help.

Dear Del:

There is a definite correlation between our ability to remember and work with our dreams and our ability to manifest other psychic experiences like connecting with departed loved ones. In fact, a great way to begin to develop psychically is by working with your dreams. Since you also want to visit with a loved one in your dreams, then learning how to work with your dreams in a general way is where we should start.

While many people believe that they don’t dream because they can’t remember dreaming, everyone does dream. What you need to do is build a stronger bridge between your conscious mind and your subconscious mind, for this is at the heart of remembering and working with your dreams and also psychic feats like tuning in to your intuition and learning how to connect with spirits.

I will give you my number one most powerful tip for remembering your dreams in detail first: allow yourself to wake up and fall asleep many times every morning. If you allow yourself to linger in that hazy state of mind somewhere between being asleep and dreaming and being wide awake, you will begin to remember all sorts of dreams. If you can’t sleep in because you must be somewhere at a certain time, then set your alarm for 90 minutes before you have to get up and hit the snooze button over and over. This one practice alone should get things really rolling for you, but here are some other tips for remembering your dreams:

  • Don’t drink alcohol before bed.
  • Record your dreams by writing down everything you can remember of them and their overall feeling as soon as you wake up. If you wake up at 2 a.m. remembering a dream, jot down a couple of key words to help you remember it in the morning. When you wake up in the morning, review those scribbles and write down the rest. If you can’t remember dreaming in the morning, then write down your mood when you awaken and anything else that comes to mind. Try stream of consciousness journaling.
  • Most of us only remember the last dream we had, so to remember more dreams, you can also try programming yourself to wake up periodically throughout the night. As the average sleep cycle is around 90 minutes, you might set an alarm to wake you up every hour and a half or so, at least during the second half of the night when your need for deep sleep has been met and you’ll be spending more time in REM.
  • When you awaken in the morning, don’t open your eyes or change position. Being in the same position you were in when you were dreaming aids dream recall.
  • Read about dreams, especially at night before you’re going to sleep. I highly recommend books by my favorite author on dreams, Robert Moss. He also teaches wonderful workshops around the world.
  • Tell the Universe what you want, and work with the law of attraction to manifest it.

There are of course some very powerful ways to both build that bridge between your subconscious and conscious minds and to foster your aim of connecting with a loved one in Spirit. One is regular meditation, and the other is learning how to astral travel. There are vast and wonderful books written on both of these subjects, so I won’t go into details here. I do, however, want to recommend the books of Bruce Moen, who travels into the dimension of the afterlife to connect with departed loved ones and help lost spirits. You can learn how to astral travel and find the one you’re looking for yourself.

I was pondering this column as I was falling asleep last night, and I realized that I hadn’t been visited in my dreams by my father in some months now. I then awoke around 2 a.m. and realized I had just had a wonderful dream. In the dream, I was invited/allowed to ride this special train with my father. I couldn’t really see him, but I could feel him all around me. There was music playing throughout the train, and it was the music of my beautiful memories of him. I rode this train for a long time, much of that time, crying tears of love and joy as I listened to the music of those beautiful memories. I remember knowing that I was allowed to ride this train for as long as I desired, so I rode and rode that train, listening and crying and reliving those memories. When I awoke, I had this deeply satisfied feeling, like my desire for more time with my Dad had at last been satisfied. I also repeated to myself, Dad, train, music every time I awoke throughout the night so I would be sure to remember this important dream in the morning.

Finally, I’m working on a system to teach people both how to connect with their loved ones in dreams and in a trance state. Given that I’m quite a perfectionist, it’s proving to be quite a challenge. Stay tuned; I will get it done one day!

Advice: Working With Psychometry

psychometryDear Kajama:

I have always been a strong empath with a particular talent for tarot reading. After a deep discussion with a family member about what I should do with my life in terms of a career, I asked my guides bluntly, What do YOU guys think? I awoke the next morning with the answer that I have a gift that will be very useful to others; all I have to do is develop it. I am currently taking a psychic development course, but I am struggling to complete it. I do not seem to have any talent for psychometry, yet I am being told to hand in detailed reports of psychometric tests that I must perform. I am determined to make this course work for me and to gain the knowledge I need from it. What do you advise? Thank you very, very, much for your time!
– Allison

Dear Allison:

I understand your dismay about the emphasis on psychometry here; it’s an unusual approach for your teacher to take in a general psychic development class, and yet I feel that it is very workable. If psychometry is not really your strong suit, you can rely on whatever psychic mode of perception works best for you personally to successfully complete these tests.

For those who are not familiar, psychometry is psychically reading the history of an object by holding it in your hands. A psychometrist may receive information about any of the owners of the object. He or she may even be able to relate the object’s entire history, from raw materials to creation to sale or purchase, and from one owner to another and another.

The underlying principle of psychometry is that everything that ever happens leaves an etheric trail or imprint. Some objects are considered to take a psychic charge and to hold a psychic charge more readily than others. Stones and metals are particularly conducive to charging. This may sound really farfetched until you remember that everything in the universe is simply empty space with patterns of energy moving through it, and that energy definitely and readily affects other energy.

Of course, dramatic events leave stronger imprints, so a murder weapon will carry a very strong charge of its act of violence. Wedding rings, having been consciously charged with a certain spiritual purpose, similarly carry strong imprints. Wedding bands are also very easy to read because they are worn so constantly. The object is charged by the energy of the person who wears it, so the more often it is worn, the clearer and stronger the charge grows.

Set yourself up for success by working with objects that are easy to read. Some good objects to practice with include rings and other jewelry, keys, watches, photographs, wallets, eyeglasses, stones and crystals. Some objects you may want to skip include food, clothing or other objects that are frequently washed or cleansed, items that are communally owned such as furniture and other household objects, and anything alive. The energy of plants, animals and people is dynamic. Instead of simply holding energetic imprints, they radiate their own energy. (Trying to read a plant belonging to a person will bring you more information about the plant than the person.)

You will also want to tune in instead of just holding the item and expecting it to speak to you. Set the object near you and then do whatever you need to do to get into a relaxed, dreamy state. Once you’re good and mellow, take note of how you feel, and THEN pick up the object. Now immediately take stock of your energy again. Do you feel different? How?

Holding the object, close your eyes and look to the inner screen of your mind and simply note anything that appears there. If you’re not very visual, you may instead have words come to mind, or if you’re kinesthetic, you may have feelings such as pain, sorrow, love, happiness, peace, etc. If you do see images, they will either repeat over and over again until you accept them and communicate or record them, or they’ll run like a movie. If you’re reading for someone, just begin to communicate what you’re shown, or what you hear or what you feel. If you’re doing an exercise alone, you might tape record your work and verbally state for the record what you’re perceiving, or jot down notes.

The absolute key is to trust and communicate whatever you get. Many assume that if what they see doesn’t make sense to THEM, it’s just mental garbage or fantasy. Yet if you communicate what you receive to the owner of the object, amazing things can come to light. For example, some objects that you might expect to carry positive vibrations can bring the opposite. If someone hands you a wedding band, instead of love and devotion, you may pick up grief and sorrow if the spouse has recently passed over, or anger and betrayal if he or she took off with a lover and never looked back. Accept whatever comes to you. Don’t analyze it. If it makes no sense to you, that’s often a very good sign that you’re not assuming anything – that you’re not trying to read the object with logic instead of intuition.

I once was handed a simple wooden ruler, such as many of us used in grade school. It was a dingy, blonde wood with a thin metal strip on the side. It looked innocent enough, but when I held it, I got a lot of anger and pain and shame, and when I asked Spirit for more information, I was shown a girl in a uniform being smacked on the hands with it, and smacked on her bare legs. I went out on a limb and communicated what I’d received to the woman before me, and her eyes immediately welled up in tears. She had recently discovered the ruler in a box of possessions from her childhood, and it had brought up a flood of painful memories of being beating physically at Catholic school when she was a child, just as I described. She was actively trying to find forgiveness for a certain teacher who had since passed into Spirit, and working through her complicated feelings about Catholicism, so she’d brought the ruler with her. (She also thought it would be a very tricky thing to read.) This led to a very healing, cathartic conversation with the spirit of the teacher. Trust what you get!

I know that you can work your way through this particular class, but if you find it difficult, don’t let it discourage you. I believe a general psychic development class should accommodate the strengths of each student instead of expecting everyone to adopt the same primary mode of perception, but I also believe you can allow this challenge to lead you to even greater development than you may attain in an easier format. There are infinite ways to develop the foundational psychic abilities of clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience, which is what you’re really aiming for anyway. Have faith in your own strengths to see you through this, know that you’re up for the challenge, and trust that Spirit will help you as you go.
