“The happy dreams the Holy Spirit brings are different from the dreaming of the world, where one can merely dream he is awake. The dreams forgiveness lets the mind perceive do not induce another form of sleep, so that the dreamer dreams another dream. His happy dreams are heralds of the dawn of truth upon the mind. They lead from sleep to gentle waking, so that dreams are gone. And thus they cure for all eternity.”
This paragraph makes perfect sense to me. If I forgive—that is, let go of the darkness of the past and remember only the loving experiences I’ve had—then I will begin to awaken from the nightmare of guilt and fear I’ve woven.
In the last few months, I’ve made it a practice to ask the Holy Spirit to guide my nightly dreams. There haven’t been any astounding revelations, but I’ve noticed a lightness, even a playful quality in my dreams. I don’t always remember to ask, but I certainly will tonight.

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
