    What about precognitive dreams for one, people have prophecized future events, even in the bible. Also visitations from loved ones or demons who can manipulate our dreams and our physical bodies? In my opinion those are actual occurrences from other dimensions or timelines. I do believe the majority are from our subconscious and I do use my dreams as guidance tools for my everyday life yet I believe dreams are more than just from our subconscious and inner states. I could be wrong…also I do not think that man with the animals chasing him was from his RX drugs. In my perception it was his own inner repressed emotions he was fighting. Wolf could be greed or anger, depending on his own interpretation for instance. The woman choking for 30 years was her fear of expressing herself. I mean a key in her explanation was her husband telling her oh go back to bed you are only dreaming, intuitively told me she needed to vocalize her true feelings, they were suppressed for some reason.Anyway I did not listen to the end so maybe i missed some important parts of this interview. I wish Mark had the chance to go more indepth than the host allowed. I love your work though Lara and Mark, especially in regards to astral travel and the realms we all should be aware of. Blessings

    I got a lot out of this interview. I know I’d heard it before because I remember that fascinating 30 year sequence of dreaming of high school and the final graduation. What a beautiful symbol there.

    It was interesting that Mark mentioned how children experience dreams related to their emotions more quickly than adults. Sometimes, a dream with a certain emotion seems out of place and I’d think, “but I didn’t feel anxious yesterday…” Now, seeing that a particular dream could be the result of a period of time in the emotional state, perhaps at a deeply unconscious level, I think that will be helpful in my future reflections upon dreams.

    Very nice discussion on such an important aspect of our dream life. Like some people mentioned here, I am also surprised that this area is not being given more attention in the society, and is usually just “brushed under the carpet”. It was clear from the people calling in how much they were touched by some of those dreams and how much they have related to something important going on in their lives.

    The most important piece of information for me personally was what Belsebuub mentioned about even slightly low states having a significant effect on where we end up in our dreams/astral plane. I think I need to pay more attention to those, as they often go unnoticed during the day and I have already verified how when i focus on those little negative/low feelings and try to lift my state, I find myself more readily conscious in the astral plane and in general it makes a big difference in my ability to perceive things objectively (without that slight cloud of negativity/low state/judgement being there).

    Another interesting video, but a little disappointing in that the announcer took on some of the questions rather than passing them directly to Belsebuub.

    The calls showed how little people understand what happens when they go to sleep. It must be terrible to have recurring nightmares for 30 years and have no idea how to overcome them. I’m so incredibly lucky to have access to the study of dreams and how I can learn from them.

    Really liked that caller calling in about his 30 year long recurring dream, that the situation in it had changed for the better, and for him to now finally hear more on its meaning. Very heartfelt.

    I also felt a bit ‘eager’ when hearing the lady’s experience of her premonition and that the explanation to it was sort of left unaddressed in a way that it could’ve been. On the one hand that part was good in order to look at that emotion within me, what was behind it etc. On the other hand at times in a non-ego way I feel I know of some things and would wish to share it with people, but without the ‘body’ to do it through properly I often find it better not to. And then all these things just remain locked inside.
    So 1. I better make use of the information I’ve been given to understand. And 2. Hope to better contribute to this information being able to reach other people.

    A little bit regarding bad dreams, which I guess can mean a few different experiences actually, I’ve found they can also be a real gift in that they can stir us up into taking the needed action. Much, much more scary imo is the nothingness of an ordinary life, being submerged in our own mixed emotional mess and constantly engaged by our mind’s chatter, like one of the many creatures in the ocean, ones left without a higher intervention or who have made themselves deaf to it. Very serious because that stupefying sleep distances us from our fate’s reality, but that doesn’t change it.

      I felt the same way about that lady’s dream, Karim. I wish it could have been addressed more.

      It seems like Mark tried twice to address it, but he was cut off or there was a commercial break. He handled the transitions very well and always explained the topic at hand with a lot of clarity.

      Bad dreams can sure inspire us to make a change, provided we know where to look and that the cause might be. It’s a shame more people don’t know what those bad dreams mean and how to take steps in correcting them.

    This was a very interesting interview to listen to this time around. I just wanted to share something on some of the notes you’ve touched on in it and some of the things the callers have shared. I’ve been aware of the information on studying dreams from your courses and books many years now — trying to remember them, recording them, studying them, correlating them with life events and inner states, and so on, with varying degrees of effort (sometimes being very rigorous with it all and sometimes unfortunately totally slacking off :S ). A few years back I was going through a very particular life experience for a good while and for a whole year straight I was having the same event / symbolism recurring in my dreams. I knew it was related to some inner feelings I’ve been experiencing at the time, but the scope of the dream seemed much deeper than just being about my psychological states — there were elements in it I just couldn’t understand, yet they felt important. Then those dreams came to an end — I just realized one day that I haven’t had the dream in a few weeks (whereas previously it was there on a weekly, sometimes daily basis). So I decided to go read through my dream diary… which turned into an interesting exercise of looking over my dreams over a period of that entire year. Suddenly it all clicked — somehow looking through the dreams I recorded in one go I understood what that recurring dream was all about, and I also understood how it related to the events in my life, why that dream was so persistent, and why it stopped when it stopped too. It was such a powerful experience to have it all piece together through revisiting the dream journal. Interestingly I also noticed how many of the events and symbols I’ve dreamt about over that year were premonitions of events that took place a bit later, and doing that sort of exercise helped me to narrow down a particular “flavor” that dream premonitions. Anyways, just thought I’d share this because it was really due to the emphasis on studying dreams that I learned through A Course in Astral Travel & Dreams that I’ve been able to understand that experience and see learn how to make better use of dreams.

      Thanks for sharing that Jenny, our dream journals can be quite an inspiration! I used to highlight the important stuff with a marker so that later I can just quickly glance over the marked things if I want to check on a certain period. But… I found that sometimes the “non-marked things” were also important, so I guess it really depends on our understanding how much we are able to extract from our dreams.

      Lately, I find myself slacking when it comes to writing my dreams down though, and only make an effort when I am in a period of more significant dreams. Not feeling too inspired to write down the usual every-day mess… even though I know sometimes just the effort to write them down can help me to better connect to the other side.

        Lucia, I have been going through the same process lately with writing down my dreams. I’ve been slacking on writing them down, with the excuse to myself that the dreams are mundane and scattered. But I know from experience that when I do write down my dreams regularly, I am more likely to get help in the form of clearer dreams. And of course, what I think are mundane dreams sometimes turn out later to be significant messages and not so mundane after all! So we have to just push to write them down, no excuses 🙂

      • Jenny August 25, 2016 at 3:17 pm - Reply

        I know exactly what you mean, Lucia. It seems like the things that stand out (the “highlighteable” parts) are things we notice perhaps because they are the bit we understood in some capacity, and the rest is glossed over unintentionally. At least that’s what I noticed in going back over the journals — the things I didn’t think much of is where much was hidden. That said — I somehow really like the highlighting idea 🙂

        I can definitely relate to that feeling of not wanting to write down the, what I call “nonsensical” dreams but I guess they’re just as important because they’re a good indicator of the state of mind that we’re in, especially throughout the day. Even they can be used to help us study the progress we’re making in achieving clarity with the number of clearer dreams we receive over time. I can also relate to what you said Jenny about going over past “unassuming’ dreams in my older dream diaries to later find out, to my surprise, that there was something significant about them that was completely missed.

      Thanks for sharing your experiences. Over the years I’ve also got slack with my dream journals but I found this amazing ancient manuscript from the Essene to be very inspiring and full of hope. The more I search to change the more I realise that I’m nothing without following the laws of my Divine Parents.
      Hopefully others can be touched by this very special manuscript which was left for all who chose to follow..

      Truly an amazing find from Jenny on The Spiritual Sun website.

        Thanks for highlighting it, John. I just re-read it once again — such a beautiful passage, and the message never gets old. Despite appearing perhaps “simple” at a glance, I feel there’s a lot of depth to this part in particular:

        “For I tell you truly, you will be every night the guests of the kingdom of your Heavenly Father, if you do his commandments.”

          Hi Jenny, I hope that many of us will follow the commandments of our fathers.

    I appreciated the focus on recurring dreams in this interview. I’ve heard multiple explanations about the meaning of recurring dreams in the past, including those shared in Belsebuub’s teachings. But the way it was discussed this time somehow led me to some insights I haven’t gotten before. I especially feel I received new insight around the idea that the recurring dream can be lingering to show us something we haven’t come to terms with. It’s an example of how learning these topics again and again, at different times, can help bring us deeper into self-knowledge. I was also touched by the callers’ stories…they seemed so genuinely interested and passionate to know more about the source of their dreams…I found myself wishing that the interviewer would give Mark more time to respond, to help give them the guidance they were searching for. Hopefully they got something they needed to increase their sense of peace, nonetheless. Thank you for posting.

      Hi Shannon, I also found myself wishing that Belsebuub could have been given more time to respond. Maybe we need our own radio program :).

    A lot of interesting information – thank you very much for posting this talk!

    Listening to this radio show made me remember vividly a dream, which I had a few weeks ago. I don’t have so many bad dreams these days, and when they happen, usually, I have a clue why they occur, but that time it made me really puzzled.

    Everything seemed very clear in that dream and (without going into the details which could be personal) I was in some sort of an apocalyptic scenario, it didn’t feel like a nightmare and I was not very emotional, but everything was so dark there: a natural disaster, evil acting military, people walking like zombies. It looked like the whole world where I was, had been taken by darkness, as I tried to escape from it with a small group of people and explore that world, there were new weird things for me to discover.

    When I woke up, I wondered if it was a premonition or a warning about some possible scenario in the future, which I definitely would like to avoid for myself and for others.

      That’s quite interesting dream Vadim. I used to have some apocalyptic scenario type dreams as well, and I wouldn’t be able to decide if it was related to my own psychology or a future world event. Unfortunately, it does seem like a possible future as things just keep getting worse and worse in the world. But either way, the feeling is an urgency to do the spiritual work.

      I really enjoy these radio talks, thanks Belsebuub. Hopefully, there is still a lot more to come 🙂

      • Vadim August 27, 2016 at 9:31 am - Reply

        I can definitely relate to this feel of urgency Beyonder to do the spiritual work – a deep inner feel for the need to profoundly change myself. There were so many experiences here and there, which helped me to feed this drive.

        Hopefully, new experiences will tell us for sure if our apocalyptic dreams was just the subconscious playing its weird tricks on us, or we have been shown things that we need to know, so we can prepare and change, whatever needs to be changed.

    I definitely got a lot out of this radio program and it was great to know that there was so much interest in this topic.
    As mentioned by Belsebuub, it’s impossible for science to explain these premonitions which are received from a dream, but one can not deny the existence of another dimension, that is, after having a clear premonition or a deja vu.
    The beauty of the teachings of Belsebuub is that the techniques actually work not only to prevent bad dreams but if one chooses they can learn to access information to change our behaviour and find peace in a very difficult world.

    What I don’t understand when I hear so many people havιng recurrent dreams is why people do nothing about it or may say “is just a dream, go back to bed” kind of things ?? Especially for the 30 OMG years cases…
    And it is something so common like flu or something. But also in broader view dreaming, having nightmares etc it’s even more common. Why there is nothing in our society to deal with? Something like it was in ancient civilisations for example.
    Even from C.Jung’s point of view which is more scientific. Like a teacher at school to say a few words.
    I don’t want to point out any conspiracy theory but just a great lack as society we have.

    Thank you for sharing this talk. I feel so lucky having the tools to find some answers about my dreams and inner states. I hope more people find them as well.

    • Vadim August 27, 2016 at 9:41 am - Reply

      Maybe the answer to your question on “why people do nothing about their recurring dreams” lies in the depth of selfishness that we all share.

      And we may naturally feel this fraternity towards other people, and definitely don`t want to feel a superiority of any kind, but most of the world is so asleep these days. Most of people lack a spiritual drive due to a combination of different internal and external factors, they are used to sleep, they like to sleep, so things like recurring dreams can be “wake up calls”, but for how long does this wish to “wake up” last?
