Medium Stephen Wakeling Answers Your Questions
Date: 29 April 2012
Thanks you for your interesting question. I am sorry to hear about your husband’s Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) which I am sure must be very difficult times for both you and your husband.
First of all may I explain something quite simple about dreams? Dreams are a natural occurrence, which allows for the movement of our soul to lift beyond the shackles of matter. Dreams happen throughout both within our sleep and during our awakening hours, taking our mind beyond the mists of matter, we are able to interact with loved ones who now reside in the great ‘Kingdom of Light’.
Way back in time, the early Egyptians were well aware of how we are able to be in clearer contact with those who have moved beyond the shores of matter. Through the hours of a sleep, Egyptian seers and priests were instructed to have beside them a tablet, which to write upon their thoughts and memories immediately upon waking from the state of sleep. This capacity enables a portal, which when honed becomes a source of inspiration and knowledge of matters beyond this life - a key to greater understanding. Therefore, the answer to your question is yes, we can get glimpses of events, even those set in the future. Yet, the process may well be coincidence and nothing to do with the natural order of the movement we all have within the physical life we are upon at this point in time.
Reference your last question of imagination or reality. We all gain intuition, often through direct thought, and sometimes through the landscape of a dream. To find your answer, may I suggest it lies in your own heart and conviction? From my perspective I feel you have glimpsed ahead and like so many people you have gained an intuitive insight. Though when you mention the word of ‘death’, I am of the opinion you are only being made aware of the closeness of your affections, the passing of his physical being is where your imagination, or mental images, may have jumped a little too far ahead, so try not to build things out of perspective.
To reassure you that dreams historically have been a bridge between the two worlds: A Divine gift is my personal view; our great leaders, politicians, poets, seers, prophets and playwrights have all been inspired through dreams. William Shakespeare immortally said in his play Hamlet:
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil”
I have placed below a footnote about ‘Dreams’. If you require more information please check out my website: www.stephenwakeling.com on the 2nd page of ‘Spiritual Articles’ you will find reference to dreams. If you are a person wishing more depth of knowledge, there are some words from ‘Aristotle on Dreams’ written back in 350 BC.
On a personal note I first saw my father through the landscape of a dream. Am I convinced it was him? Yes, this is why I have dedicated over 30 years as a spiritual medium in support of others who are less fortunate and can’t remember their dreams. So do dreams open up your mind? Yes! They will for you once you accept your own reality.

Footnote on Dreams
The process of dreaming is an interactive communication between your body, mind and spirit, recognised as a symbolic communicative environmental state of being. In layman’s terms, there is a process within in our brains, which is constantly active. We acknowledge there are altered states of consciousness, moving between being fully awake, meditative, asleep, alert, lethargic, excited, bored, or when we are simply daydreaming. Each individual state of consciousness causes distinct brain wave activity.
The conscious mind is the part we refer to as the thinking element – our portal into life. This takes up a very small portion of our brain activity. Dreams are identified as a succession of mental pictures, or images, which provide ideas, emotions and sensations. These images occur freely in the mind during certain stages of sleep. Some scientists and interested observers believe, this is in relation to only ten percent of the conscious minds activities. The remaining areas control aspects such as breathing, heartbeat, converting light to vision, sound, and balance when we walk and so on. This too has its own small percentage. A further area controls our imagination, which involved the process of creativity and making of mental pictures. Too many people this is an area widely undiscovered, yet undergoing much ongoing research.
Mental imagination is much more than purely dreaming of a new holiday, or picturing something of which you may desire. If you look at movement, or at rolling clouds, you see numerous shapes, colours and see images, this is the process of disseminating ‘order from chaos’ again, a component of your imagination. In general terms, the mind doesn’t compact well with disorder and chaos, in reality it resists, in its pursuit of order. It is recognised that ‘order’ is an important component to the dreaming process. This too occupies a small percentage of brain activity. Subsequently there is a most important faculty of the mind – memory. Memory is a vast area, that absorbs more of the brains resources then generally people believe
I hope this information helps you – Stephen
