Understanding Release Dreams
by Sylvia Browne

As we dreams, we have many types of different dreams. Understanding these various types of dreams is a profound way to discovering yourself.

Release dreams are usually the most confusing, chaotic, preposterous, and disturbing dreams we experience. They’re also among the most necessary, because it’s through our release dreams that we dispose of the everyday mental and emotional garbage we collect. Some release dreams are silly and worth only a good, brief chuckle when we wake up. Many more of them are nightmares that can stay with us for a very long time, since fear is such a strong emotion and hard to shake off. But without release dreams, including the nightmares, we’d all be either chronically stressed out or completely psychotic, so they’re more than worth the discomfort they often put us through.

This is a release dream I received from someone and is quite classic. I’ll use this as an example:

“I have three children,” Lyn wrote. “On separate occasions I’ve had dreams that each of them has died. Why would I dream about the death of the most precious people in my life?”

Dreams, or nightmares, like these are very upsetting, obviously, and they’re also very, very common. You’ve probably had your share of similar ones. I know I have. They’re not prophetic dreams, and they’re certainly not expressions of some terribly disturbed subconscious wishes. What they are – is a subconscious release of our “worst case scenario,” the most awful thing we can possibly imagine, so awful we refuse to let our conscious minds fantasize such a thing for more than a second or two before we force our focus onto something, anything, more manageable. What our conscious minds push away as quickly as they can, our subconscious minds keep track of and act out, not to be perverse and see how much they can frighten us but to reassure us that even if our version of “the worst” happens, we’ll somehow manage to survive it, emotionally devastating as it might be.

We all have release dreams. Knowing that what you’ve had is a release dream is quite helpful. Our dreams offer us wonderful insights into our own thoughts.

Why are all my dreams nightmares?
By Barbara, Sunday, October 26, 2008 02:18:27 AM
I don't dream often , and they are always nightmares when I do.This year I had a vision , a man was hiding behind my kitchen isle he saw that I saw him and he came running at me grabbed me and threw me on couch. It was so real I hunched my shoulders and waited for the hit that never came.It was a vision. A few weeks later I had a dream I was upstairs geting ready for work and heard a voice from downstairs Barrrbraaaa, I went downstairs with a gun, I shot one man on my right,and continued down the stairs with him calling BarrrrBaraaaa and heard my rocking chair rocking. It stopped when I got to last step. I ran into dining room. Used cell phone, called 911 as a man came from side door, I shot him. chair stopped rocking and the man came sneaking in and I awoke.The vision and the dream was telling me what???

Sylvia, Thank you for your guidence and I pray that you can give me an answer as to wheather or not this was a release dream or if the entities don't want to let me go.I also hope that you can direct me as to any work I may need to do to reach a peaceful solution. I was emotionally needy and ended up being sucked into a group of sociopaths who used and abused me for 4 years. I never knew this element existed, let alone that I would be entangled with them. Since I moved out of state, I had a nightmare. I don't regularly remember dreams. In fact, never. But this dream was so vivid. There were 5 people. I could identify 3. The other 2, I couldn't bear to look at. But, they were people from this circle. Friends of the main perp who I got a protective order against. They were threatening, angry, coming after me. I tried time and again to call 911 but my phone would not go thru. I screamed for help from another person, not in the group who didn't help. I awake petrified. Being of Indian decent, I visited a shaman the next day. He said that the entities don't want to let me go and that since I moved from them, they can only come to me in my subconcience now. He sent me home with a dream catcher he had blessed, to protect me in my sleep. Sociopaths are evil in the way they play on the emotions and my perp made me feel crazy. I still struggle with the how and why I became so vulnerable as to be played in such a way. I may never open up to anyone so freely ever again. Please, if you feel you can help reach out to me as I am more or less in isolation where I have moved. I share my hopes, dreams and aspirations with 5 dogs, l cat and a bird avoiding human contacts at all cost.

hi Sylvia. I love you so much! You are the best! I have been having dreams about my friend that killed himself in April. They started right after he died. At first they were good, like he was saying goodbye but then he would be kindof mean in the dreams. Until the last one I had about a month ago we were walking down the street close to where we both used to live and a white light came in the sky and I told him to run to it and he said no and he ran away from it. Then I woke up. And after that I haven't had anymore dreams??? What is the meaning?

I had a dream recently about being with people,who from what I guess were friends.I didn't know any of them.In my dream I start seeing people murdered,not my'friends', butcops,and other people,that i couldn't figure out.I saw my 'friends shooting people in the heads,and stabbing people.I had talked to girl 'friend' and told her I wanted to leave the house we were in(the place was surrounded by the cops) the 'friend told me to take a bag of diamonds,and tell the 'friend' (male) that I was taking the diamonds out,to save them,and not to come back.I woke up after that,but it was so vivid.(The people i watched being murdered)Afew nights before I dreamt that I had fallen from something,and landed on the ground dead.I was looking at myself,and the crowd that had gathered,I kept trying to tell everyone that I was alive,nobody could see or hear me.I saw my body laying there bleeding,with my eyes open.Since the murder dream,I haven't had a dream.What could they possibly mean?

My husband was not a believer, but would "humor"me whenever I would talk about you. Then the unbelievable happened and he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer(which took him in one month). Before he died I had him read "Life on the Other Side." It was the last book he read.I will always remember what he said after he read your book:"I hope it's true--I will let you know." Is he trying to tell me now?

I've had dreams which I believed were a release dream, however it turned out to be a completely another kind of dream... prophetic. It seemed so surreal and although I told coworkers where I worked when I had it, they laughed and agreed with me that dreaming of planes crashing into NYC was an impossibility.... the date of my dream...I'll never forget as my company had been just converted from TWA to American Airlines... 9/10/01.

hi sylvia, i feel that my mother came to me the morning that she passed away, she was terminaly ill. she had pulmonary fibrosis which is when your lung tissue basicaly hardens and flakes off. this is a terrible and very painful way to pass. well on the morning that she passed i was sleeping and all of a sudden i was awakened and that is when i saw my mothers face clear as day. well just a few minutes later my brotherinlaw called and told me that my mother had passed, at about 6:30 that is the exact time i saw her face. i really think that she came to me to let me know she was ok now. this is something i will never forget as long as i live. i was very close to my mother and her death has really changed my life. ever since that day five years ago i have not been able to sleep at night. i can get two or three hours sometimes less. i am not sure why this is i have a feeling that it could be because there was no closure for me. i only lived two hours away if i had known i could have been there with her.
