Helping Your Children With Their Dream Lives
by Sylvia Browne
How many times has your child told you about an amazing and unusual dream they had last night? Or perhaps they have mentioned that they visited with Grandma who is now living on The Other Side. Children are just like adults in that they have rich and vivid dreamlives. Being open to helping your child understand their dreams is a real gift.
We all travel to The Other Side occasionally during our dreams. This is after all, where we used to live. We chose to come to Earth to live for awhile before returning to The Other Side. So it makes perfect sense that we would become sentimental for our true home during our stay on Earth. If your child tells stories of visiting a place with magnificent buildings and large libraries and many people that all seem familiar—they very well may have traveled to The Other Side during their dreams.
Simply listening to your child’s dreams is so helpful to them. Asking them questions to help them get more information from their dream is very useful. It is best not to make definite statements about their dreams—let the child explain what they think they were dreaming about. This relationship can be so helpful for your child’s spiritual life!
What type of dreams have your children had? Do you think your children remember their dreams?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I read somewhere that children have dreams that we as adults can't or won't because their minds are open.
My daughter had a dream a few months ago about moving. In her words it was a place that was 'far far away, and we had to drive and drive to get there.' At the time of the dream there were no plans to move in our future. So there is no way she heard us talking about it, and picked up on anything. About a month after her dream my husband got a job offer and we did move. We moved from Florida to Montana. It doesn't get too much further than a move that's over 2,500 miles, and a 4 day car trip.

Crystal it seems to me you do have a special gift. I just read your last comment and it seems to me you do see a lot in your dreams but you find it hard to interpret. Maybe you should be reading more about dreams and it would help you understand some of the things you dream about. Try http://www.dreammoods.com/ I use the site a lot and their interpretations are pretty accurate

Crystal we believe that if you are honest, truthful, modest and a very good person, God reveals some aspects of the future in your dreams. So it must have been that you were a really good person then, so God showed you a lot of things about the future. When I was more religious and prayed regularly, the same used to happen to me. Now I don't have most of those dreams because I am a bit relaxed on religion. Hopefully would get back to what I was soon.

Sometimes sharing a dream, especially a frightening one can be all it takes to make it stop. I had a recurring dream from the time I was a very small child. it was terrifying. I was in a strange buiding and trying to get away from someone and there were stairs going in and a hallway and a room at the end with just a long table in it, and in this dream I was always trying to get away from someone and I didn't know who, but the terror of it was something else. Anyway, I had this same dream up into my teens. It would change slightly as I grew, but the basics of it were the same. It bothered me so badly I was never able to bring myself to talk aboutit. I finally told my mom and another girl about it in my late teens. I started shaking just talking about it. My mom had this funny look onher face the whole time, and she asked me to describe the building. Was it a house, or what? I described it as best I could, and she said that it sounded just like an apartment they had rented when I was a baby. She said that it had been an old doctor's office and that one room had an old examining table in it when they moved in. She said that a lot of really creepy things happened there, so they moved out but that I was only a few months old at the time. She couldnt' figure out how I could have even heard of the place to dream about it. I never had the dream again after I told her about it. Whatever it was, getting it out of me, was enough to finally break that cycle.

When i was a child, i really did not share my dreams to my mother. there are times when i just keep it to myself and now i realized that it is very important for us to share our dreams and talk about it.

Yes Crystal, it is good to know that we have a lot to learn from our kids. sometimes our kids' experiences can really help us. it is also a way for us to connect with our children well and have a great bonding.

And Patricia, why don't you talk to your son about this? like what you have said, your son graduated and his best friend was not able to graduate. i think there is something to do with that. try to ask your son if he had an issue with is best friend as not being able to graduate.

Patricia, did your son start dreaming about his friend as it got closer to the anniversary of his death? Often our internal clock remembers things and begins to bring back memories and feelings from the year, or years before around that time. It may also be his subconsience trying to deal with his friends passing a little better. If his friend was trying to get a message across to him, like a warning. Perhaps he should try writing te dream down as soon as he wakes up and see if there is a common denomimator to the different dreams.
I agree with this Crystal. I really think that his best friend has something to say to Patricia's son.

When I was a child, I went through a period of several years where I would have dreams that would come true. It scared me, even though most of it was just ordinary things. At first my mom didnt' believe me, but it got to where I would see something happening and would tell her what was going to happen or be said just a second or 2 before it did. It was a very disconcerting feeling, and it left me feeling sort of dizzy and lightheaded. It stopped after a while. I don't know why this happened or why it stopped.
