According To Native American Legend, THIS Is Where Your Soul Goes When You Dream
Have you ever wondered just how important your dreams are?
While some people write off their dreams as just the crazy things that happen when they sleep, there are others who are very attuned with the dream world: Native Americans. And dreams are a highly important factor in their culture.
Young Native children are taught to remember their dreams as best they can, so they might use them as guidance, and as a window into their own mind.
Dreams are incredibly significant to Native American culture because they believe that part of the soul leaves the body when one transitions into the dream world.
According to Natives, every person on Earth has three souls, not just a single one. The first is the ego-soul, which manifests as breath.
Then, there's the body-soul, which is what gives our body life and energy when we are part of the waking world.
Finally, we have the free-soul. The free-soul is believed by Natives to leave the physical body when one dreams.
This is the part of one's soul that travels to other dimensions as the other two stay back with the physical body.
