(Ancient) Egyptian Dream Beliefs
From Beliefnet  [Edited]
Dream interpretation links back to the ancient Egyptians with the first written record of dream interpretation around 1350 B.C. – although modern findings see it as much earlier. This record is called the Chester Beatty Papyrus. It is the oldest dream book in existence. The book portrayed images of what the dreams meant. In KMT HetHeru was responsible for dreams. [The article stated Bes, but it is HetHeru. 7M]
Dreams were a very important, and indeed, sacred part of KMT culture. Dreams were of utmost importance and dream interpreters were called “Masters of the Secret Things”. These temple priests were educated and most of their knowledge was taken from The Book of the Dead – a book of KMT wisdom. In this system of belief the gods revealed themselves in dreams. They also saw that dreams gave warnings, advice, and prophecies.

Why Dreaming Is Important
By Robert Moss, 2015
A dream is a wake-up call. It takes us beyond what we already know. Dreams are the language of the soul, and they are experiences of the soul.

First, they have looked to dreams for contact with a wiser source than the everyday mind – call that God, or Nature, or the Self. Second, they have looked to dreams as part of our survival kit, giving us clues to possible future events we may want to avoid or enact. Third, they have known that dreaming is medicine, in several important senses. Dreams show us what is going on inside the body, often before physical symptoms present. Continue reading
“Blocking” Telepathic Old Lovers
By Sister Othelia, 2008 (edited)
If you believe in auras, energy, astral projection and portals, welcome to the concept of unwelcome Telepathic Love. It’s theory is that certain people/spirits/ energy connect to a vibration so close to our own, that they have the ability to join our dreams. We may find our selves constantly frustrated because we can not let go (or get rid) of them. They play like a broken record, repeating over and over. Haunting you. Telepathic lovers do not take responsibility nor allow free will, and are without ethical rules of consideration. Continue reading
