Encouraging Dreams are the opposite of warning dreams. They seem to give the go ahead to a plan of action, a new project or a developing friendship. Sometimes these can come right out of the blue. In the midst of a difficult and tense period in your life, along comes a truly inspiring dream. This means that the future is much brighter than you can see from your present, everyday existence. You must learn to distinguish between genuine dreams of encouragement and mere flights of fancy. We all indulge in wishful dreams, whether waking or sleeping. If you feel that you are, in some measure, controlling a happy dream, shaping the scenes and narrative in your favour, you are having a daydream from your unconscious.
Creative Dreams occur to artists, designers, writers, poets and engineers and ordinary people like you and me. If you are an artist or musician, you can receive wonderful inspiration from dreams. I often dream of music and lyrics.
Time Dreams are those dreams which genuinely take you forward or backward in time. Forward looking dreams can be premonitions but more often than not, they will have a morbid streak. They usually seem to predict disasters rather than happy events, but remember these dreams are more likely to contain an element of truth rather than be totally accurate in every detail. Dreams that go backward in time may well reveal aspects of yourself in a previous life on earth.
Lucid Dreams these are my favourite types, this is where you are dreaming, but you are aware of it and because you are aware you can control the dream. These types of dream are good for astral projection and spirit communication because once you are aware that you're dreaming you can try to get out of your body and also ask for spirit to come close, another thing that can happen in lucid dream state is seeing your physical self, because we are aware that we are dreaming we can sometimes become aware of our physical selves, seeing your physical self should not to be confused with being out of body, not unless you have other sensations with it as mentioned on the astral projection page
The first lucid dream I remember having was quite basic in nature and it involved me being chased by a monster, this went on for quite a while and I couldn't escape and was getting pretty fed up with it, then all of a sudden I thought "hang on this is only a dream and nothing can harm me" so with this in mind I stopped running and walked towards the monster and the closer I got to the monster it started to change, It turned in to a butterfly and flew off. The meaning of the dream itself was suggesting that I was trying to avoid a situation in real life instead of facing up to it.
