Recurring nightmares are frightening dreams, usually caused by past
life karma, that are designed to motivate the individual to heal
their unresolved issues.
Recurring nightmares start out as recurring dreams… and if we had
taken care of the recurring dream by exploring and healing it, then
it would not have turned into a nightmare. Nightmares are usually a
last ditch effort to get the person to heal their life before the
problems manifest into "physical, waking reality."
Regardless of your level of spiritual advancement, the primary purpose
of your dreams is to give you "coaching" about your life. Therefore,
most dreams will be filled with people, places, and things that are
familiar in your life now.
When you find yourself dreaming about "historical" people, places,
and things that is the surest sign you are in the process of tapping
into your past lives. In other words, if you find yourself dressed
in "period clothing" or in "historical settings", or if you see
yourself living through "significant events" from times that could
only have been experienced in past lives… you are having a "karmic"
You will know when recurring nightmares come from a past life because
you will not be able to change the replay of the nightmarish dream
events, no matter how hard you try. Unfortunately, those events will
just continue to replay in your nightmares until you take action on
them in your waking life. Usually the longer you ignore the symptoms,
the more progressively violent the nightmares will become.
The longer the individual has had the recurring nightmares in this
lifetime, the more healing will be required to move past them. The
good news is that once the recurring nightmares are confronted and
healed, they are gone for good. Literally, the individual can be
free from the nightmare the very next night.
When it comes to working out past life karma, there is no difference
between what is "real" (happening in waking life on the physical
plane) and what is "imagined" (happening in sleeping life in the
inner worlds of God).
Recurring nightmares are often harmonious way to work off karma now.
So to "get the karma over with" as quickly as possible, there are two
things you can do if you suffer from violent nightmares.
To do that, start by practicing "Lucid Dreaming"
(our exclusive exercise). When the nightmares start, stay "awake" in
the dream state, keep on following the events. Do not stop for anything!
When you are having a nightmare, ask "Am I
working off karma?" until you get an answer.
If the answer is "Yes,
this is karma", then lean into the
nightmare, experience it fully no matter how "real" and terrible
it seems, and stick with it until the end. If you can do that, you
will have released the need for the nightmare and it will stop. Do
not worry that you will be harmed now by reliving a past life death.
The point of punching through the past life nightmare is to
re-experience the emotions so that you can release them forever.
If the answer is "No",
then just decide how you can change
the nightmare so that it can be pleasant, happy, and joyful.
"Rewrite your dreams" to create new happy endings. You are the
creator of your universe: transform your experiences - even your
nightmares - into how you want them to be: create a new, happy ending.
One client suffered from nightmares of "fields of dead bodies" and
"dead people dressed like they were in the late 1800s/early 1900s".
These were flashbacks to the lifetime as the soldier in World War 1.
Before our session, the client did not get much sleep and their
nightmares of "fields of dead bodies" intensified. In their nightmares,
the client was instructed to "touch the dead bodies".
Being fearful of doing so, the client did not take this advice. The
dream experience was trying to tell the client that, only by
reconnecting with the pain of the past, could they let it go. This
was the client's body's way of preparing for our session together
so the pain of this past lifetime could be released. After these
nightmares were explored in the session, they stopped.
