Dreams – New Age, Rediscovered Or Evergreen?

We often see Dream Booths at New Age Conventions, but there is very little, if anything new about dreams because research shows they have been used as a source of information, guidance, healing and warning concerning illness, relationships, and mind, body, spirit, matters since before the Bible was written. What is new is the rediscovery of dreams in modern times as an early warning sign of illness and diagnostic tools. Dreams are again taking their rightful place in the modern healing arena and changing the way medicine and the medical community views dreams.

During the Kat Kanavos Show LIVE, Kathleen (Kat) O’Keefe-Kanavos, co-author of the Bestseller Dreams That Can Save Your Life: Early Warning Signs of Cancer and Other Diseases, co-written with Duke University Medical Radiologist Dr. Larry Burk, discusses the reintroduction of ancient dreams as a modern health tool. The Video Podcast is posted at the bottom of the article for your viewing pleasure.

Dreaming Temples have been around for at least four thousand years.

Two thousand years before the Asclepeion Healing Temples of ancient Greece (and Rome), there were the Sleep Temples of Ancient Egypt.  Imhotep who served as Chancellor and as High Priest of the sun god Ra at Heliopolis, built the first ones. These Dream Temples were built so the people of Egypt could get answers to daily concerns in their dreams because ancient Egyptians believed dreams were doorways to the gods. The Ancient Greeks and Romans continued the practice with their Asclepeion Dreaming/Healing Temples.  Dreams were used in the Asclepeion Temples for guidance on health-related matters.

They slept in their place of worship with their priests to get answers to personal questions.

The person with an important question like, Should I move;  Is this the right girl for me to marry; Why can I not get pregnant; Will this be a good year for crops; would enter the temple, lie on the floor, and sleep beside the priest with the intention of dreaming the answer.

They set their dream intention by asking the dream question they wanted to be answered.

The priest and the parishioner would dream in tandem, meaning they shared the same dream. Sometimes the person would not have a dream, but the priest would have a dream for them. Upon awakening, the priest would use the guided-dream to help the person make decisions and life changes.

How is it possible for someone to dream for someone else? Does that still happen today?

Dreaming with and for others has been going on for a very long time; thousands of years to be exact, and just as there is a whole section in the book Dreams That Can Save Your Life dedicated to Dreaming for Others that shares shared dreams that were validated by pathology reports, there are a number of incidences of Dreaming for Others in the Bible.

My favorite is Daniel 2:34, 2:44 concerning life and death in King Nebuchadnezzar’s court.

King Nebuchadnezzar had a bad nightmare and called all of his court dream interpreters, soothsayers, magicians, and card readers together and said, “I just had an awful nightmare. If you cannot tell me my nightmare AND what it means I will have you all killed.” The court dream interpreters said, “Tell us your dream, and we will gladly tell you what it means.” “No. If you are as gifted as you say you are, tell me my dream and interpret it. If you cannot then you are a fake and you will die with your family.”

Well, the court ran home and started to pack because they had told the king no one could interpret someone’s unknown dream, and the King was furious. Daniel heard what had happened at court and since he was part of the court the death sentence applied to him as well. Daniel told the King that with his God’s help he could dream the King’s dream and interpret it for him because it was really God who was sending the dreams and interpreting them.

The King told Daniel he would wait one day for the interpretation before he killed everyone.

Daniel went home, and with two other friends, dreamed the King’s dream, went back to court, and interpreted it for King Nebuchadnezzar, and saved everyone’s life, including his own.

Was dreaming for someone else an ancient once-in-a-lifetime miracle? No! It happens often.

Dreaming for others still happens today and is validated by medical and scientific tests. In the book Dreams That Can Save Your Life: Early Warning Signs of Cancer and Other Diseases. Chapter 8 contains an amazing story of a daughter who had a dream warning her of her mother’s cancer and imminent death and her own future breast cancer.

After her mother was diagnosed with colon cancer and died, Paulette told her oncologist and gynecologist of her warning diagnostic precognitive dream, but they would not believe her. For the next five years, Paulette faithfully got yearly mammograms and checkups and was told she was healthy. Five years after her precognitive dream she was diagnosed with breast cancer that the oncologist told her had been growing for five years.

Did Paulette have a dream of Biblical Proportions or a dream anyone can have?

Paulette not only dreamed a precognitive diagnostic dream for herself, but she also dreamed it for her mother.

Dreaming for others may sound like an impossibility or extremely rare, yet Part Eight of the book Dreams That Can Save Your Life contains half a dozen stories of people dreaming for others, and those dreams are validated by conventional scientific medical reports.
