Zombies have been staggering into our dreams long before they were so prominent in our pop culture, believe it or not. But knowing what zombies actually represent to our collective unconscious, it makes sense as to why they frequent our dreams as much as they do. Think about what a zombie is, it’s a dead body that still has life to it. It is decaying and falling apart, yet it walks and eats and tries to survive even though it ought to be dead and buried. It does not belong in the land of the living. In that same vein, many of us tend to keep certain issues or grudges alive even though they came to an end some time ago.
Recently, I was a guest on AJ’s Playhouse in San Diego, CA when a gal called in with a zombie dream… and this one ate brains!
What I didn’t get to address on the air – due to being up against a commercial block – was the brain eating aspect of this dream. Yeah, zombies are known to eat brains, but there is certainly more to it than the fact that it comes with the territory.Â This dream is showing this caller, not only that her grudge against her mother is something that she needs to let die, but that it is also eating away at her. It is consuming her thoughts, hence the eating of the brain reference. This dream is a very clear message that her grudge has got to go.
Did you hear her relief when she was finally able to understand this dream? I think I might have even heard a chorus of angels sing!! That’s what your dreams are doing for you every single night. They are giving you the answers you need, the advice you seek and the solutions to all your problems… you just need to be able to understand their language.
When understood, your dreams offer a continuous supply of answers, warnings and inspiration that you need to know. Your dreams are pretty much a how-to guide for your life. Any dilemma you ever face, any inspiration you ever need, any warning you need to pay attention to… it is ALL given to you in your dreams.
