Dream Magick 101

Dreams are our mind’s way of processing information from the day, week, month, or lifetime. Most dreams have little significance other than an internal movie made from little pieces of your day or life or your imagination creating scenes to process information from your day as your body rests and heals. However, some dreams have more significant meanings and can even be prophetic. These dreams “feel” different when you wake from them and start remembering them. So let’s dive into Dream Magick.

How to Start Practicing Dream Magick

The easiest way to start practicing Dream Magick is to keep a dream journal at your bedside. Give yourself time to write down dreams as soon as you wake up. The more things you do between waking and recording your dreams, the more you’ll forget. Write down anything that comes to mind, even if it’s just simple colors, words, feelings, or smells. The more small details you put together, the more your brain will work to fill the gaps and complete the story.

Don’t rush things! All forms of dream magick take time. Just be consistent with recording your dreams, and you’ll see your Dream Magick abilities start to grow.

Types of Dreams

There are several common types of dreams we experience.

  • The Daily Processor – These dreams entertain the brain as we sleep. There’s no rhyme or reason to them.
  • The Epic Dream – These are chock-full of a deeper meaning for you. When you wake from this type of dream, you just know you have to write it down! Everything was big: the imagery, actions, feelings, everything!
  • The Problem-Solver – This type of dream happens when your brain continues processing information while sleeping. Often, there’s an answer to your problem or challenge in these dreams.
  • The Guidance – These dreams include visits from your spirit guides, animal guides, deities, or your higher self. A Guidance Dream often includes a straightforward message, so pay attention to as many little details in this type of dream as possible.
  • The Recurring – This type of dream happens more than once, and there may be slight differences in the details occasionally. They may be heavy in symbolism and are trying to tell you something. You'll continue to have it until you face or acknowledge what it’s trying to tell you or say to you.
  • The Visit – Loved ones who have passed over will visit you in these dreams or to let you know they’re ok.
  • The Prophecy – This type of dream also has a distinct “feel” when you wake up. The details were WAY too accurate, and it felt like something that could really happen in real life.
  • The Nightmare – These types of dreams are created by our fears. They can shed light on our subconscious stressors, traumatic events, deep-seated fears, and things that are holding us back from fully living.
