The above summing up is equally relevant to the present book. Marsha Sinetar looks for convincing ways to bypass conventional religion and its symbols, preferring to search elsewhere for keys to what genuine spirituality can offer. In this book, she delves into the subject of dreams. She chooses to see what she calls “dreams in transcended sleep” as messages of invaluable guidance from our Higher Selves, messages that we are not receptive to, when we are in our beta states of conscious awareness.
It is an accepted fact that we all have a life purpose. Even though we may not know what it is. It is also accepted that each of us have a soul that is our hotline to the Infinite Mind. In the author’s own words,
“We are….born to infuse our world with the climate of the Celestial, not in some ethereal way, but where the rubber hits the road of our daily doings”. It is in the above quest for self-actualization that dreams can play a seminal role. That is the landscape this book seeks to explore.
The text is divided into two parts. In the first, the author deals with the characteristics of a holy dream, how to recognize one and the significant information they can provide. To prove her point, she draws upon many examples from the Bible along with several case studies. The second part, is devoted to the interpretation of dreams, the importance of words and symbols and how the correct interpretation of a dream, can affect an individual’s outer life according to the adage “As above, so below”.
There is a religious organization called “Eckankar” which sees dreams in the way the author is attempting to do. However, the not inconsiderable literature of that organization is based more or less on the symbols of the organization. The Eckankar books on dreams are very easily read, as they are almost completely based on case studies. Marsha Sinetar’s work might appeal more to a non-denominational person, interested in learning how to tap into certain abilities that s/he does not know that s/he has. Important also to note that the author emphasizes the concept of the Higher Self as one with the individual, not as an external appendage or as a master or guru.
This book is not a fast read. The language is exquisite and the text adorned with a number of very telling metaphors. Overall, a book to be read and reread to fathom its import.
Marsha Sinetar’s book Dreams Unto Holiness, Exploring the Power of a Sweet, Transcendent Sleep, gives you practical techniques and guidelines for using your sleep time to inspire and nourish your soul. She teaches you how to determine if a dream was a psychological dream or a holy one and what to do about both types. She reminds us that all dreams teach us a new language about who we are at our core.
You awaken from a holy dream with a sense of beauty, hope or direction for your life. These are dreams you will remember for long periods because they are haunting and profound when you understand them.
Dreams Unto Holiness is well written in everyday language and provides techniques that someone from any spiritual background can understand. Use these methods to improve something in your everyday life or bring highly personal spiritual information to light. It is a good investment of a few hours of reading time to benefit from your sleep time.
