Dreams have always been an important part of our lives. Some people believe that dreams are hidden messages from the subconscious, while others take them with a pinch of salt.
Whether you’re on one side or the other, I get you. Dreams have never been properly researched, and no one can really say what they are. And that’s the magic. Unexplored or unknown things are attractive and attention-grabbing.
If you visit our blog regularly, you probably know that I follow in the footsteps of my grandmother, an avid dream interpreter. I love all the books on dream interpretation and spirituality that I inherited from her as they have so much depth compared to today’s modern books on spirituality or dream interpretations. So all interpretations or articles about spiritual meanings on my blog come from old dream dictionaries and her notebooks.
The spiritual meaning of not having dreams
Some time ago, a friend of mine asked me what is the spiritual meaning of forgetting dreams and whether it is not to dream. People often come to me with questions like this because they know I interpret dreams.
“Wait, what do you mean not dreaming? Are you sure you do not just forget them?” I asked her. “I’m 100% sure I am not dreaming. I can sleep 5 hours or 9 hours; I can be tired or rested. I just never dream!” she said.
I was at a loss for words because I frequently dream, and I usually remember them as the day progresses. I couldn’t answer her question, but I kept thinking about it. It was as if she had implanted a bug in my mind, and I had to work out the significance and gist of it in order to be rid of it.
These are the three spiritual meanings of not dreaming that I managed to find in old books and personal notes on spirituality and dreaming. So, if you believe you’re not having dreams anymore, this may change your perspective.
The first and most common spiritual reason why you’re not having dreams could be spiritual cleansing. Think of it like you want to clean an oven. It doesn’t necessarily need to be disconnected from the power source, but it should be clear of any plates, pots, and pans.
Much like when we go through unconscious spiritual cleansing, our minds must be empty and not distracted by anything. And when is the best moment we have no conscious control over our thoughts and bodies? While sleeping!
Spiritual cleansing is the process of releasing negative energy or spirits from your body, mind, and soul. This negative energy can hold you back from creating a beautiful life filled with peace and happiness. It is something that makes your life more difficult, but it is hard to remove it on your own.
You may feel so much negativity or unhappiness in your life, and you may even know that you should cleanse your spirit, but you don’t know how to do it. That’s why your subconscious has started working on it on its own without your intervention or effort.
Ultimately, if you have asked your guardian angels or other spiritual beings for help in removing something negative from your life, not having dreams is a sign that they are working on cleansing your spirit.
Either way, not dreaming is a good sign, and it’s for your own benefit. If you are going through a spiritual purification, it won’t remain that way for eternity. You will eventually start dreaming again.
Without dreaming, your conscious mind takes charge and is conscious of the environment. Refraining from dreaming means that your mind is not diverted and you are in a state of mindfulness. Your conscious mind can take in more information without irrelevant disturbances, even though you may not be aware of it when asleep.
This helps to awaken your subconscious mind and connect with your inner guidance or higher self. As you go about your day, your mind is constantly working and processing the thousands of thoughts and things it sees, hears, feels, and thinks, so it doesn’t have room to connect to your higher self (unless you decide to do so through meditation or other technique.)
In order to make full use of the hidden potential within you, your unconscious needs to work with your higher self. However, if you are in a rush, not taking time to practice meditation, or fearful of anything spiritual, sleep is the only way your conscious can power down and your unconscious can take over.
You’re not dreaming because the spiritual side of your being is coming to life. This can help to bring clarity to your life and move your forward in the right direction.
You need to reconnect with your intuition
If you’re not dreaming, it could be an indicator that you’re not in tune with your inner being and intuition. This is quite common in those who feel adrift and don’t understand their life purpose. This might be because they are constantly questioning and not listening to the sound of their inner voice.
Not having dreams is kind of a wake-up call to think about what dreams really mean to you and why you do not have them. It’s not a bad curse, just a wake-up call to be more open-minded and not question everything that cannot be logically explained.
If you’re not having dreams, you may start thinking about the reasons which may change your perspective on the spiritual side of your life and the essence of being or the deeper meaning of your dreams.
As soon as I stopped dreaming, it made me realize how much I actually enjoyed dreaming, and it increased my curiosity to delve deeper into the significance of my dreams.
Why not having dreams is not a bad thing
Not having dreams is not something that will last forever. It is only a transitional phase of your life when you are spiritually awakening or cleansing, and your mind must be empty and clear, free of thoughts and dreams. It can take a week, and it can take months.
Instead of wondering, “Why am I not dreaming anymore,” ask yourself, “What is the reason I am not dreaming? What changes have I noticed in my life? What can I change? Why do I miss dreams so much now when I almost ignored them before?”
Finally, remember that it is normal to not dream. Just because you do not dream does not mean something is wrong with you or that you will never dream again. Think of the period when you are not dreaming as a transitional phase that you must go through.
Reasons why you are not dreaming
Spiritual awakening: When you are not dreaming, your consciousness is beyond the physical body. You are in a state of bliss where your soul connects to the Divine Source. Thus, you’re spiritually awakening during sleep.
Spiritual cleansing: During spiritual cleansing, your mind must be empty, free of thoughts and dreams. That’s why you’re not dreaming.
Wake-up call: Your intuition is that little voice that speaks (sometimes screams) to you, but you ignore it. Not having dreams is a kind of wake-up call to listen more to what comes from within.
