Healing Dreams


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/02/healing-dreams/

Healing Dreams are just what the phrase connotes.  Dream Psychologists say that these types of dreams are the mind’s way of communicating to the body that it needs healing.  The origin of this type of dream dates back to Ancient Greece when sick persons spent the night in the temple of Aeslepius, the healing God.  If the Gods chose to intercede, dreams were sent to the patient via the God Hypnos (God of Sleep).  The dreams are then interpreted by a therapute (where the word therapist came from) and then a diagnosis is made.

The practice of interpreting healing dreams is not limited to the Ancient Greeks.  The Chinese and the Hindus also believe that dreams contain messages regarding our health.  The Chinese have identified certain symbols in dreams which they say identify which part of the body needs healing.   A bad dream generally means serious diseases or illnesses and normal dreams connote good health or recovery.
