The Universal Wisdom of Dreams: Making the Invisible Visible

Over the years, I have had many dreams and experiences which have served as personal guides for me and made me think about my life, actions and creation. I believe the reason we sleep is not just to allow our body to rest but to allow a universal inner wisdom to speak to us through symbols. The message can be about physical as well as psychological problems. I have found dreams and drawings very useful in diagnosing physical conditions. Doctors are not told, while being trained, that Jung correctly diagnosed a brain tumor from a dream. This inner universal wisdom which creates our dreams will sometimes manifest itself in images and words.

Bernie Siegels dogsFor example, I wrote a book called Buddy’s Candle to help people deal with the loss of a loved one of any species. When I finished the book, I took our dog Furphy out for a walk. I heard the voice of my inner wisdom say to me, “Go to the animal shelter.” We got into the car and drove there. I walked in and saw a dog sitting near the door. The voice said, “What’s his name?” Of course the answer was, “His name is Buddy. He has been here less than fifteen minutes.” I said I was there to take him home and I did. I have to add that on the way home I stopped for gas and Buddy leaped out of the car and started running down the road. With help I caught him and when we got home I quieted my mind and asked him why he did that? His answer, which blew my mind was, “I belonged to a couple. The husband was an alcoholic. When his wife would ask him to take me for a walk he would go to a bar and drink while I was locked in the car and then he would abuse me.”

I told him I would never treat him like that. The test happened a few weeks later when going shopping I accidentally hit the button on my car keys, while putting them in my pocket, which opened the minivan’s side door. When I returned to the car Buddy was sitting in the open car. I started yelling for Furphy and then heard Amelia Kinkade, my animal intuitive friend, say, “Bernie, quiet your mind.” As soon as I did, I knew Furphy was in Stop & Shop looking for me. And indeed when I went there the guard saw me and asked if I was looking for my dog which he had with him.

Sometimes the universal inner wisdom delivers its message in visual form. Many years ago I experienced hematuria and my associates wanted me to immediately see a urologist as cancer could be the cause of the bloody urine. I was very busy and did not want to interrupt my schedule and caring for patients. That night I went to bed and dreamed that I was sitting in the cancer support group I ran. Those attending were all introducing themselves and telling why they were attending. When it came my time to speak and introduce myself everyone said, “But you don’t have cancer!” before I could say a word. I awoke knowing I didn’t have cancer and that I could make an appointment that fit my schedule. The dream proved to be correct. I had an infection, not cancer.

These experiences and many others have led me to the belief that consciousness is non-local, not limited to the body and independent of it. I believe what leaves our bodies and sees when we have a near death experience is the same force which creates our dreams; the universal collective consciousness and the source of creation. So if you want to make the invisible visible pay attention to your dreams and drawings as God speaks in dreams and images.

    All I have are nightmares…been that way since I was a child. So, since I’m a dream rememberer, I go through recovery every morning. Maybe that’s why I’m so tired all the time; I wear myself out in my dreams.

    I totally agree about listening to our dreams and our surroundings for evidence of guidance. Recently, I have become more aware of the nearness of God. If you allow it, God inhabits your being. Where else would he/she live?

  3. god speaks in dreams and images and so does our body and unconscious. when you confront your dragon or nightmare you will realize there is nothing to fear becuase you can overcome them and they are just trying to get you to confront your fears and eliminate them.

    I have incredibly vivid dreams most every night. Some are nightmares, but the night terrors that I experienced from a very young age are less frequent now. (I have an idea what the trauma may have been to evoke these.) The vivid dreams that are most fascinating are ones where I feel like I’m visiting another plane of existence or another planet. These are intense. I had a dream once where I saw the “book of my life,” as it was explained to me in my dream. It was written all in symbols. I waited in line to talk to a man who would give me a review of my life and grant me permission to “go to the next level.” We touched foreheads and he said, “You have done many great things.” I remember that dream, even though it happened 3 years ago.

    These dreams, and others, are my own experiences of knowing that consciousness does not live in my body. It is everywhere.

    • yes consciousness is everywhere and can be communicated with so we know the truth and the future and more. but we must stop thinking and quiet our minds to be receptive to consciousness and communicate with it. then the voice can be heard. there was consciousness and consciousness was with god and consciousness was god.

    I discovered this site yesterday, 10/26/11. I believed the name, “Bernie Siegel” to be spelled that way. I typed it first, instead of “Segal.” I believe I arrived where I was supposed to.

    I had gone to sleep after 5 a.m. and slept late. Dreams were many times interrupted with being told the name, “Bernie Siegel.” It was short of being blasted at me. It was so annoying to me, that when I arose, I said aloud, “Who the hell is this guy, anyway!”

    I decided: I had been “receiving” psychically. Because that has intensely occured since a child, I paid attention. I believe I have arrived where I was supposed to “look into” the benefit of the website. I registered for the the 9 pm webinar.
