WHAT IS THE SECRET BEHIND YOUR DREAMS?
Reading more in the new book, Second Sight: An Intuitive Psychiatrist Tells Her Extraordinary Story and Shows You How To Tap Your Own Inner Wisdom by Judith Orloff, M.D., I’m immersed in her deep understanding of dreams and how they are so often clues to our inner selves. As a practicing Intuitive Psychiatrist and Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA, she has impecable credentials in the medical field, as well as the new field of knowledge about tapping into our own Inner Wisdom. She has become a renowed speaker and authority, in demand on television and in person.
Though I’m only halfway through reading this fascinating book, I am coming now to respect the dream life even more than I did before. I have a whole chapter dedicated to Dreams in my upcoming book, In Secret Diffusion: The Upper Realm Answers Questions About Earth, due out soon. I’d like to share a little bit of my interview with The Holy Spirit concerning dreams, since I keep thinking of it as I read Dr. Orloff’s wonderful book:
Where do the actions take place which we perceive as dreams?
Exactly what IS a dream? Is it simply our conscious experiencing of being in another place, during which we are always awake?
Yes. Your astral body never sleeps, even when your physical body is truly sleeping. Your dreaming is your conscious awareness of this other body. This perfectly wonderful experience is very familiar to everyone, but few have any idea of its true significance. If you knew about the miracle of the dream world, you would be overwhelmed with a sense of majesty and awe at this beautiful improvement over the way it has been in other millennial life cycles. Suffice it to say that We thought all Earth humans would become extinct at this millennium, as they were not to be given another chance when yet another global war occurred. So We planned a “double time” life for them during this go-round. We wanted to test them during their sleep, and so We provided a very active dream existence, the significance of which escapes everyone. Dreams are just stories that their minds create at night, as far as anyone is concerned. This is the best opportunity to explain how We have been testing you on Earth while you slept.
What is the difference between a dream and an out-of-body experience?But many New Age people now seem to be casual about doing out-of-body practices. Would You please comment?
A dream is different, but it’s not easy to explain what the difference is. An out-of-body experience is a delicate maneuver and it should not be attempted by anybody. Very few individuals can manage this successfully, and they are taking a great risk every time that they do this deliberately. Dreams are not dangerous. Out-of-body experiences are dangerous because it might not be done in the right direction or the right manner. It’s just best to leave it alone, as attractive as these prospects might be. If one is “supposed” to do this, for some unusual Upper reason, then you will be protected, but it’s a risky business to fool around with. There are dangers concerning this human connection with a physical body; not the least of which is that negative entities may desire to occupy it. These can be very hard to dislodge if they have found an unprotected human body. Accidents do happen in these inter-dimensional fields.
Are You constantly testing everyone with dreams each night, or is there ever a point at which You give up on some individuals?
It’s been almost two weeks since I wrote a blog and that’s because I have been having a very enjoyable time reading away, as well as immersing myself in three long-term friendships which have been on hold for sixteen years. I can’t help but feel that these activities have all come together as part of a larger plan because they have unfolded as naturally as the petals of a lovely flower opening up.
In addition to all that, I have been concentrating on the hothouse flower project of bringing my new book into reality, which has surprisingly become such a slow and delicate operation with so many small details that needed seeing to. For over a week, I proofed my final copy to make sure my edits were inserted correctly. Then I had to construct the index and add the page numbers, so that was also a tenderly careful duty. Hopefully, this marks the end of the production stage, which ran about six or even eight weeks longer than expected; and now we cruise into the printing process and finally a distribution arena. I have given up trying to promise a date to those who ask. All in good time, I tell them.
Today’s blog will focus on a very interesting life that has some parallels to mine.
My initial book marketing training has shown me how to locate other like-minded authors on the internet and I’m suddenly in the pipeline to receive notices of their hot-off-the press beautiful books. Just this minute, I’m a third of the way through reading Dr. Judith Orloff’s brand new book, Second Sight: An Intuitive Psychiatrist Tells Her Extraordinary Story And Shows You How To Tap Your Own Inner Wisdom – Amazon.com or her site: www.judithorloff.com .
Judith Orloff was a wild child in high school, very rebellious towards her conventional Jewish MD parents; into the Malibu Beach, California, drug scene, without much direction in life. She had been an intuitive child who forsaw deaths and tragic events and recoiled from certain people. This “weird” ability had been discounted and denied by all around her, especially by an overbearing mother who had only wanted her to be popular and acceptable. Fortunately, at seventeen, she almost died in a very strange auto accident which certainly should have killed her…a plunge from a twisting canyon road into a ravine below. Instead, she went into a “tunnel of serenity” and walked away from the accident unharmed. Many years afterwards, she discovered that this was a Near Death Experience.
In this book, she candidly reports the uncertain turns of her life which resulted in her discovering and beginning to respect her intuitive nature; only to have that pushed to the back burner by going through medical school and a psychiatry residency. Ironically, a Voice had told her in a dream that she should go to medical school, even though any sort of school was repugnant to her at the time. She was very intelligent and thrived at med school, though it took all of her energy and threw her wholly into the scientific-thinking world.
Then, she conducted a practice for many years, ignoring any inner knowledge that might come sneaking back into her brain. That is, until the day when she had a clear impression that the patient on her therapy couch was planning to kill herself. She ignored that intuition and the patient went out and soon attempted suicide. The woman seriously messed herself up, but didn’t die and Dr. Orloff had an epiphany. No longer would she stuff that ability just because she was in a field where medical doctors didn’t cotton to those crazy theories of a non-scientific perception.
So she came out of the Intuitive Closet…as I have come out of my Clairaudient Closet with my own new book…and she started incorporating her “knowings and impressions” into her practice and writing books to help educate the public to this natural phenomenon. The book I’m reading is her fouth book now and she is very, very much in demand as an authority in this field, appearing frequently on major television shows. You may have heard of her.
But there she was, in the late 1960’s, a hippie, doing drugs and hiding a great fear that there was something seriously wrong and shameful about her; just because unexplained inner impressions came spontaneously to her mind. Now she is one of the front-runners in the movement that is causing this whole inner ability to be accepted by the general public and even by the more open-minded members of the medical community. After all, she IS one of them! They are much more inclined to listen.
That little red-headed rebel is paving the way for the rest of us! Thank you, so much, Dr. Judith Orloff!
Stay tuned…in a few days, I shall tell you about some other fascinating lives I am discovering.
This is another excerpt, quoting The Holy Spirit, from my new book, In Secret Diffusion: The Upper Realm Answers Questions About Earth, which will soon be published. I’ll let you know when it becomes available.
