Is this a past life?

In honor of Memorial Day I wanted to do a blog with a soldier theme, so I dug in my archives and found this really good audio clip from when I was on WFUS here in Tampa back in ’08!
Lester, one of the co-hosts of the Skip Mahaffey Show, had a dream about being a confederate soldier. The details of the dream are pretty amazing and certainly make one wonder if it was revealing a past life…

Lester’s dream is a wonderful example of  how the dreaming mind will step in when we are going through a tough situation and give us very precise directions on how to handle the issue at hand.  Lester’s precise direction? Time to go into soldier mode, be strong and fight! Fight the legal issues, fight the depression that surrounds the issue, fight for what is right!

Speaking of soldiers, I want to thank all the soldiers out there that have fought and are fighting for our country, as well as all families of soldiers. My uncle fought in Vietnam and was never the same after he returned so if you know a soldier, don’t forget to tell him or her how much you appreciate their sacrifice. It could mean more to them than you know.

dream-on-it-smDreams help us in every area of our lives, relationships, career, overcoming the past… you name it!  When you can understand your dreams, your life gets better because decisions are easier, tough situations are clearer and you’re just plain smarter when you dream! My latest book Dream On It will help you learn your own dream language so you can get an edge in life.

“This is not a book that you read only once because you need it as a reference to your daily dreams and because Lauri Leowenberg, in a very unique way, explains a lot about the whys, whats and whens about dreams for anyone interested in interpreting them. I recommend it! It is definitely one of the best that I have come across of its kind for a long time.”   – Sophia, Athens, Greece

  1. I have a question about how smart we are while we're dreaming. I've researched diet and how it connects to brain function, links to depression, anxiety, etc. In your book "Dream On It" you state that dreaming of food could be the sign of a poor body image, and on your "what your dream means" site you say that dreaming of food is common if you're watching your weight, but what if there's something more to it, something in the diet we need that we are not getting?

    Like say eating more or fat, yes even saturated fat! Up to about 66 percent of the brain is made up of fat, including saturated fat. These are the areas that help fight depression and such, but if we cut out fat, we might as well be doing the same a large percent of our brain and the parts of the brain that help us fight mood issues. Not only that, but when we eat only three meals a day, we are actually losing nutrition and the body enters a state of starvation (blood sugar drops within two hours after eating) and can increase the chances of putting on weight, instead of losing it.

    So this made me wonder about those who go on strict no fat diets or those "3 meals a day only" diets and if, they dream of eating more or fatty foods, it's not just that desire, but their dreaming telling them "this isn't good for you" and is trying to give them a nudge in the right dieting direction?

  2. Lauri Quinn Loewenberg says:

    The body will often communicate with us during the dream state and tell us what is going on with it, such as being pregnant before you pee on a stick, letting you know a bout of depression is on the way before other symptoms manifest, etc. So yes, if your diet is lacking, your dreams can reflect that. But you have to be very in tune with your dreams, track them daily and have a good understanding of their language to be able to pick up on it.

    It can be tricky to decipher between what it is your body is telling you it needs through the dream or if it is symbolic of something else. Am I dreaming of fish because I need more fish in my diet or am I dreaming of fish because they symbolize creative ideas I am working on, for example.

    A good way to figure out which is which is to do a process of elimination between the fish as a symbol making more sense to you right now or are there obvious symptoms in real life of lack of omega 3.

  3. Interesting. I have blood sugar issues (hypoglycemia) as well as many other de"fish"encies and found out that there are certain things in our diet that are considered "unhealthy" but actually are necessary, like the fat and oils. I used to suffer from depression, severe anxiety (I really mean severe, like 12 panic attacks in a singe day!) and had recurring dreams about eating meat and even strictly fat, a lot of fish, sweets being poison (yes, in my dreams a bowl of ice cream or a candy bar was poisoned) being reminded to take my vitamins, etc and when I did the research…it was all true. I was literally poisoning myself with too much sugar, not enough fat, omega 3 fatty acids, a lack of snacks, meats and fats. Once I got on it, the dreams went away! Premonition or basic psychology? Perhaps in this case it's both!

  4. Even if it's as complex as getting more fish oils to get those creative fishy ideas swimming and flowing, as well as getting out of the dumps to seek out more fish in the sea! 🙂 It can be a dual meaning, as you've said before. Thanks for the advice!
