Can you catch a dream? What does this mean? The definition for dream has several meanings…
such as the illusive images during sleep and dreamtime to having a dream about something or someone or about yourself. Most of us have heard or heard about the famous “I Have a Dream” from Martin Luther King Jr.’s civil rights speech. He dreamed for the end to racism. A dream can be global or personal when it is for aspiration or inspiration or even imagination. I question whether one can catch a dream or lasso the moon as in the 1946 movie, It’s a Wonderful Life.
To catch a dream is like to catch the wind. You can hear the wind only with its contact with some thing; and there it may be a whistle or moan or scream or singing. You hear. You notice. You cock your head to one side and listen. You do not see the wind yet you see it disturb or tickle or sway some thing or things. The wind may be gentle or a mighty force. I feel this is the way with a dream—such as the wind.
Dreaming is illusive. Not yet fruition. You give the dream something to “catch” on to as it wisps by. However, such as the wind, it changes and does not stay the same. If you have a dream, best to start something for it to stick to; or better yet, like a dream catcher, yes, catch it within the woven web of silky substance. Weave your web, begin somewhere somehow with something for the dream to be caught, and then… listen. There the shape of the dream will come forth in materialization. Once you catch the dream, though, let it grow, breathe, and teach you the way.
Spirit whispers in dreams, inspiration, and imagination.
May your dreams
Come to sweet fruition
Bless your journey
Bring you beauty
Sing your soul.
“The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird sleeps in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul, a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities….” -James Allen
“Visions of beauty and splendor,
Forms of a long-lost race,
Sounds and faces and voices.
From the fourth dimension of space—
And on through the universe boundless,
Our thoughts go lightning shod—
Some call imagination.
And others call it God.”
