The Soul Can Initiate Dreams
The soul can initiate dreams, pulling from the senses, emotions, imagination, stresses, thoughts and experiences. God has given us the dream tool, not only as a direct line to hear from Him but also as a means of revealing our own issues to help us resolve them. When dealing with soul dreams, it can be easy to miss the point and dismiss an uncomfortable dream rather than benefit from it and get to godly resolve! We have all had strange dreams where we went to the breakfast table feeling guilty. Have you ever awakened with a load of guilt left by a dream? For example, a common soul dream is dreaming you are back in school and can’t find your class or your homework. It could be that your current situations or activities are reminding your soul of the same feelings of those embarrassing, immature, insecure years. Or you could be glimpsing something in your soul that was never resolved from back there in that stage of maturing and training. Or you could be feeling unequipped or fearing failure in your future plans. In any case, there is no benefit to carrying that guilt around the rest of the day.
