Cayce was able to obtain virtually an unlimited amount of knowledge on anunlimited number of subjects. One of these subjects wasdreamsanddream interpretation. Cayce was able to astound people by interpreting their dreamsand giving them insight into their psyche, lives and even past lives. Caycerevealed that dreams are actually journeys into the spirit world.Edgar Cayce once said, "Dreams, visions, impressions, to the entity in thenormal sleeping state are the presentations of the experiences necessary forthe development, if the entity would apply them in the physical life. These may be taken as warnings, asadvice, as conditions to be met, conditions to be viewed in a way and manner as lessons, as truths, asthey are presented in the various ways and manners."Each night the average person spends approximately ninety minutes in a dream state. Some of us canremember all or most of our dreams, and others have trouble remembering even a snippet from one of ournightly sojourns.The dream state is an experimental playground which gives you a chance to explore and express emotionswithout the usual inhibitions you may display in your waking life. Dreams provide an avenue of expressionfor that part of yourself that knows both your history and your potential as a spiritual being. They areanother way the universe provides guidance about relationships, careers, and health problems. Throughdreams you may find answers to your spiritual questions and even receive encouragement to somechallenge in your life. While some dreams may allow you to release bottled emotions from your day'sactivities, others can lead to profound insights in a psychological or spiritual way.However,Carl Jungsaid dreams are "the main source of all of ourknowledge about symbolism." This means that the messages you receivefrom your dreams are expressed symbolically and must be interpreted tofind their true meanings.Mark Thurston, executive director forEdgar Cayce's research foundationand author of the book,Dreams: Tonight's Answers for Tomorrow'sQuestions, says, "A dream symbol is the very best way for your unconsciousself to communicate to your conscious self. The particular image chosen - beit an object, a person, an animal, or whatever - has shades of meaning andpersonal associations that make it the best communicator of some truth about yourself."Ancient Chinese tradition held that it is your spiritual soul which creates your dreams and leaves the bodyto travel to other realms and meet other souls. They and other ancient cultures, including the Greeks,erected dream temples for seekers to find guidance about their lives. Many times purification rituals aswell as other rites of preparation were performed by the seeker prior to entering the temple and thedream state. Upon awakening, the seeker consulted with the temple dream interpreters.Cayce believed that our dreams serve several functions. Somatic dreams - dreams referring to the body -are extremely important to be mindful of. Very often dreams will offer solutions to health problems. Forexample, one man was plagued with food allergies for many years, but was unable to find the source ofhis discomfort. Then one night he went to bed and he dreamed of a can of coffee. He quit drinking coffeeand his symptoms disappeared.Jung says that rarely do the symbols in dreams have just one meaning. And when interpreting themessages in your dreams, he suggests going with your first hunch, relying on your intuitive abilities, beforeapplying more rational methods of dream interpretation.Cayce also believed that deceased friends and family members do occasionally visit us in our dream state.These occurrences may offer direct communication with those people or allow us to resolve our feelingsabout their death. The person may also represent some aspect of ourselves.

One man reports that occasionally he hears a voice in his dreams. This voice usually is loud and strongand is not associated with any characters in his dreams. "Typically, I'm told something very specific to door not to do," he relates. "I know this is God speaking to me - loud and clear. And I know I'd better listen."Morton Blumenthal, who received more dream interpretations from Cayce thananyone else - often reported dreams of a disembodied voice, which offeredcounsel. Cayce usually indicated this was input from the Creative Forces, God. Forexample, in one dream, Blumenthal dreamt of a figure leading him by the hand, anda voice which said, "The Lord will lead you - but you must ..." He had forgotten therest of what was said to him, but Cayce interpreted it as follows:"As in this, as is seen, again and again, the entity receives that reassurance of thehigher forces guiding, guarding, and directing the entity in its actions, as it were, with the cloud by day andthe pillar of fire by night."Blumenthal also had a fascinating dream in which God came to visit him. To the dreamer's surprise, Godwas a modern businessman. Cayce's interpretation pointed out that God was someone with whom we can"do business." God is not only transcendent but also actively involved in human affairs. It was a powerfulmessage and, in a sense, a wonderful revelation from the divine.
More Cayce on Dreams
The following is an excerpt from the excellent book byHarmon BroentitledCayce on Dreams. During the dreaming state of sleep, we experience the different levels of consciousness and receive inputfrom the different realms of the spirit world. Through dreaming, we have special access to our spirit within.According to the Cayce readings, there is not a question we can ask which cannot be answered from thedepths of our inner consciousness when the proper attunement is made.A dream may be of a physical, mental, or spiritual nature and may deal with all manner of psychicmanifestations. These include telepathy, clairvoyance, prophetic visions, out of body traveling,remembrance of past lives, communication with beings in other realms including deceased friends andrelatives, spirit guides, angels, Christ, and even the voice of God. Dreams can also give invaluableinformation on the status of the body.All subconscious minds are in contact with one another.Through the subconscious, dreams may place us inattunement with those in the physical realm or those in thespiritual realm. We may be visited in the night by discarnateentities for many reasons: they may seek to give usassurance about their well-being in other realms of existence;they may come seeking our aid through prayer; they maycome to bring us information which may be very helpful orlimited; or they may come to influence us with their owndesires or perspectives, which may be helpful or harmful. Forexample, there are dream reports of deceased relativesappearing and giving instructions about where to find a will ora lost object.The events we experience in the third-dimension are, as it were, a "past condition" because this dimensionis simply a projection or a reflection of what is being built at another higher level. Therefore, when we tuneinto these higher levels, as we may in dreams, we become aware of what is being built, and what may beprojected into the physical in the future. Nothing of importance happens to us that is not foreshadowed inour dreams. Which is not to say that all dreams are precognitive or that the exact detail of everything weexperience is given earlier in dreams. However, the word "foreshadowed" suggests that we may glimpseand be warned of what we are building now which may come into manifestation later. We call thesedreams "precognitive" or "prophetic."

Just as the angels spoke to people in dreams in the times of the Bible, the spirit world still speaks topeople to this day. Some people came to Cayce with dreams of Christ. None was told that it was simplyhis imagination, but all were assured they were indeed in touch with him.There is no dimension of human life, whether social, financial, emotional or physical, mental or spiritual withwhich the dream may not on occasion deal. Dreams may encourage or reprimand, instruct or deceive,inspire or seduce, guide or confuse. The potential for an immense array of experiences in consciousness isalways there. What we actually receive depends upon our attitudes, motivations, the measure of ourattunement, and the extent to which we have made applicable what was received in earlier dreams and inwaking experiences.Many people came to Cayce to have their dreams interpreted. An example was the dream of a young manabout his father-in-law, who had recently taken his own life. In the dream a voice commented:"He is the most uncomfortable fellow in the world."Then the dreamer was shown his own baby crying for food. The image was to convey the dead man'shunger for guidance and spiritual sustenance, said Cayce. The next night the dreamer heard the man'sown voice, together with "a wandering impression of restlessness." The voice said:"I seek rest. I want to leave and be with my family down there."Again Cayce said the dream contact had been authentic, showing the dreamer how much his prayers wereneeded for the father-in-law, who was still an "earthbound" discarnate. He added that the reason thediscarnate was turning towards people in earthly life was that "the lessons are learned from that realm,see?" It was a point Cayce often made, that souls who had once entered the Earth had to learn their finallessons in the Earth, where will is called into play in a fashion different from existence on other realms.Yet contact between the dead and the living can be joyous. Sometimes it occurs because the dead wantto show the living what death is like, to take away their fear and grief. Exploring the possible reality ofsuch contact, one dreamer had her side pinched by a discarnate friend, so vividly that she screamed infright, while another had his toe pulled when he asked for it - and did not ask again.One dream took a man inside the brain of a woman dying of cancer, a relative, and showed him preciselywhat a relief death was, when it finally came. A later dream also showed him how a soul feels whenawakening to consciousness after death.Discarnates are not only rewarded by recognition from the living, they can experience the joy of teachingthe living. They can also, in relatively unusual cases, work directly with the living for the fulfillment of worthycauses. The dead differ from the living only in this respect: they are in a permanently subconscious statebecause the conscious mind of the physical body no longer exists. But the body is an expendable shell,and all else is intact. On the astral level of existence, the subconscious mind replaces the conscious mindof the soul, and the superconscious replaces the subconscious.Hence, in dreams, we find that communication with those who have passed on is more logical than theaverage person is able to comprehend. The following are more excerpts from spirit communications indreams as told to Edgar Cayce and interpreted: One man related to Cayce:"Both my mother and father [deceased] came to me and were so glad to see me, but then they told memy sister had committed suicide."Cayce replied in trance:"This dream presents to the entity, through the mother and father both dead, the thoughts beingentertained by the sister because of dissatisfaction to meet properly the conditions in her life. And asseen, the father and mother depend upon you to so instruct, to so direct, and to so counsel your sister.Give the sister spiritual counsel so that she may better understand, thereby enabling her to grow;otherwise, detrimental experiences will destroy her. Suicide is in her mind. Remember, too, that thoughtsare deeds in the mental realm, and they increase or mar the activities of the higher self." [136-70]A woman related to Cayce this dream:"I dreamed my mother told me I should warn Aunt Helen against an accident between an automobile and a
