Soul Train

For many years I had frequent dreams about trains. In fact, they were more like nightmares. I would often dream of catching the wrong train and going in the wrong direction, or missing the train and watching it pull out of the station, or I would be standing on the wrong platform and see my train on a different platform. Often I would be trying to get through the ticket barrier with no success while watching the train disappear. If I ever had a dream that I was actually on the train, I would often be on it without a ticket, or without a seat, or facing backwards and feeling like I wasn’t getting anywhere.

These dreams were obviously showing me something and were communicating a powerful message. I had them consistently in the years leading up to 2007, which is when I came across the teachings and presentations of Universal Medicine. In the years prior to 2007, I was doing a great deal of searching. From the year 2000 I could feel that something was wrong and amiss. In those seven years I dropped a great deal of things that I used to participate in, and I embarked on what I thought was an inner journey. This took me into a plethora of new age and psychotherapeutic practices that I thought were the answer.

However, my life remained the same and the train dreams continued. They were telling me clearly that I was not getting anywhere and that I was on the wrong track.

However, everything started to change when, through Universal Medicine, I learned the Gentle Breath Meditation™ and discovered how to connect to the true me, my innermost essence, my Soul. I could feel that I had come home – not home to Universal Medicine, but home to myself. I began to make changes to the way that I lived, using my new understanding to connect to myself before moving, speaking and making decisions.

It started to become obvious that I had not been living the true me, and that at last I was beginning to find out who that was. The joy that came with this was incredible. Soon after the joy, came all of the old stuff that I then had to clear – anything that was not from the true me. Anything that I had taken on from the outside, such as ideals, practices, beliefs, plans, ideas, projects, and emotional baggage. It all had to surface in order for me to clear it and then discard it. What I understood was that I had embarked on a journey back to my Soul. It wasn’t necessary to search anywhere anymore but just re-connect to my inner heart and the healing would occur.

Around this time, my dreams began to change. In my dreams, suddenly I was on the right train! Going in the right direction! With a ticket! And with a seat! It was so obvious to me that I was now on the right track in my life.

My train dreams are not so frequent now, but have continued to guide me over the last 10 years. If I start walking away from my Soul, I have a dream that I’m on the wrong train. If I ignore this warning, these dreams stop altogether. Once I come back to what I know and listen to my inner wisdom and act on it, I have a dream that I am on the right train again. It really is remarkable.

For the last few months I have noticed a lack of meaningful dreams. No train dreams at all and no dreams that seemed to have any messages of confirmation or warning. It felt like I was coasting.

Last night though, I had a train dream. I was waiting for the train. There was some anxiousness about if it would actually arrive, and if it would take me where I needed to go to get home. The third train that arrived was my train. Myself and the other passengers on the platform tried to get into the train, but the doors were locked. The train continued to sit in the station with locked doors. It was obvious that the female guard was keeping them locked intentionally. We all pondered on what to do. Someone said that sometimes the guard didn’t let people on the train at all. I had no doubt that I would eventually get on the train; it was just a matter of how and when.

We then realised simultaneously that before we were to be allowed on the train, we had an opportunity to deeply thank and appreciate the train and its operators. We felt we had to acknowledge the value of the train and the fact that we could board it and it would take us home.

What a message from this dream! What I realised when I woke up was that I had not been appreciating all that I have been given, and that I was not on track unless I did this. I had been reminded of the power of appreciation, and how I cannot grow or evolve without this. It was a confirmation that I had been coasting and it was time to get back on track!

In the dream, after we had all got the message and felt appreciation for the guard and the train, the doors were opened and we all got on board. In the dream, I logged on to the Internet and posted a blog that all passengers on the train would be able to read…. So here it is!

The message of this blog is the importance and power of appreciation. Appreciation for everything I have been given, appreciation for myself for waking up and recognising the truth, and appreciation for my Soul for delivering dreams that keep me on the right track.

So, I can’t end this blog without expressing my deepest love, appreciation and gratitude to Serge Benhayon, his family and everyone associated with Universal Medicine. Without them I would still be searching in the wrong direction. The tireless and endless love that is lived, displayed, walked, given and expressed is phenomenal. The teachings of the Ageless Wisdom are delivered and presented with so much integrity, and not one ounce of trying to convince or receive recognition. The truth is presented. We can take it or leave it.

I’m choosing to take it, and I’m choosing to take the Soul train!

  1. To know that you’re on track on the path of return to your soul is huge, and I know for me this began when I found Universal Medicine who inspired me to reconnect to my inner most and thus begin my journey back to soul. And the soul is always there ready and waiting for us to pay heed.

  2. What an amazing blog to re read and to feel how your Soul, our Soul is always guiding us to return back to our origin, our divine nature. And I absolutely share what you have expressed at the end, the deep love and appreciation for Serge Benhayon, his family and those who are associated with Universal Medicine and what Serge has brought through and keeps bringing through, there are not enough words to describe the love he lives and brings on this earth concistently day in day out.

  3. It is amazing and a blessing how thigns keep coming back up for us to look at which we have not fully dealt with. Whether it is during our waking day or when we are a sleep. The more we embrace what we are being shown the more we can let go of what is not true to us so as to allow more space for what is true.

  4. “I had been reminded of the power of appreciation, and how I cannot grow or evolve without this. ” The power of appreciation is huge and very much underestimated – for ourselves and for others too.

    1. Great reminder Sue, appreciation is like the cement as the foundation and alos between all the bricks without it the hosue can easily tumble down. With it the hosue becomes super strong and nothing can get in and sway it.

  5. The way we lead life today is like someone who constantly gets on and off trains panicking because they are late then getting stressed that they are not ‘getting there’. If we just focused on staying connected to true purpose we may find the journey can be smooth.

  6. The soul train is always there on the same track, at any time of the day and will bring us back to where we belong. But there is also the spirit train, that is never on time, always on the wrong platform, always goes in the opposite direction and does brings us nowhere. A great start would be to acknowledge that this is a fact and come back to the understanding that it is simply a matter of choice what train to take.

  7. The power of our sleep time dreams and then what we can understand from them, the messaging, the evolution, is confirming of the power that already is within us and what our bodies do feel in every moment to be able to generate the particular dream we require. Dreams are amazing tools, because our body is one too.

  8. Prior to meeting Universal Medicine I was on a train going nowhere. I now have most definitely jumped tracks and on the train that is taking me ever deeper to my Soul.

  9. I am enjoying coming back to the ‘soul train’ blog, it tells the story of our return to who we are by the threefold aspects that make the one journey what it is: Appreciation for everything been given to us constantly by God, appreciation for oneself for waking up and recognising the truth – our commitment and activation, and appreciation for our Soul to keep us always on the right track by whatever messages or means necessary whereby honouring free will.

  10. What an amazing revelation. Imagine this being the way in life. Not being allowed to enter the train unless we really appreciated it and everyone involved making the journey happen. It would make us more respectful, hopefully, and we would experience a grander purpose as a community.

  11. What a beautiful tool reading the meaning of dreams can be to access our next steps concerning our evolution back to soul. All has meaning in life.

  12. To be able to appreciate what you felt and what you chose and how you are now living a life full of love and the truth of who you are and the enormity of what we are connected to life sure is worth appreciating.

  13. Thank you you Rebecca for sharing your dreams and for the reminder to deeply appreciate and confirm who we are and how listening to our soul brings the most momentous opportunities and healing. We are so held in our lives by God with everything available to us to live the love that we are. Symbolism is around us everywhere offering a response to us about the choices we are making, enriching our life and offering more. I feel much love and appreciation for Serge Benhayon, his family, the wisdom he is unfolding every day to support Humanity to board the ‘express’ train home.

  14. There are only two tracks that we can follow in life, both which lead us back to God. One will be the direct express route that will get us there faster (Soul) and the other will be an all stops one (spirit) that meanders and delays as it twists and turns throughout our various lives, taking us further away from our true self until ultimately we make the journey back in.

  15. When we listen to our soul we know we are on the right track, it is the times when we don’t that we end up going down a rabbit hole, or on a track that leads us to a dead end, and our dreams often alert us to situations that need our attention.

  16. Thank you Rebecca it is such a lovely read, it even feels soulful and I feel very still reading through. The communication in dreams can be very powerful, it’s so much greater than words, it’s more like a whole body experience that is deeply felt and understood through the body. The soul is certainly amazing with what it can deliver.

  17. Reading someone’s experience with the humour and directness their Soul is very unifying – as we can all relate to those thoughts, those dreams and those feelings of being guided and supported by more than the ‘functional’ life that we can see.

  18. The Soul has to communicate to us in a way we can understand the message. We associate trains with schedules and destinations. The Soul train does propose to us a very different approach to movement.

  19. Wow that is super cool Rebecca how clear and spot on the dreams were. What’s even super cooler is that you stopped and listened to what they were showing you and you could feel that something wasn’t on track. Such a healing for you in that moment.

  20. ‘I’m choosing to take it, and I’m choosing to take the Soul train!’ A beautiful and powerful claiming that is being reflected by your dreams, Rebecca. I’m on board with you!

  21. I find often things I am not fully clear about or undealt with come to me in my dreams as an opportunity to learn from them and observe the choices I am making. Often things are presented to me and I can then observe the choice(s) I am making and then can either go yes or hang on why have I chosen that and then make different choices.

  22. “….appreciation for my Soul for delivering dreams that keep me on the right track” – dreams are one of our biggest indicators into waking life, and its quality because they message the energetic interplay and truth of what is going on. And for me personally, when I don’t remember my dreams i know that that in itself is also an indicator into the way I am choosing to live my waking life at that moment in time to not recall a message that is for evolution.

  23. This is an awesome point that you make, about how after even just a moment of true joy there comes the reality of all that you have lived without this quality. Personally, I find this experience always to be very humbling and inspires me to want to clear away more and more of my issues so that there may be more space for true joy to come out again and again and to stay for longer and longer.

  24. I think it’s important to appreciate that we’ve never entirely missed the Soul train so to speak – as in even if we realise we’ve been making unloving choices for a long time we can still make a change and make our next move in a different quality…

  25. This blog is so cool; we are so amazing. If we would wake up and read what our soul is communicating we would see we have been given it all. Which is a great realisation to see and start the journey back to living this truth daily.

  26. It is beautifull how the Soul gives us messages through dreams. I haven’t had anything as clear as you have but maybe I just need to up my awareness and listen more!

  27. Hopping on board the train and obviously making choices to rearrange the seating always leads us back to the understanding that the direction we choose may not always be the one that serves the all.

  28. I love the fact that the Soul never ever gives up on us, we think we may simply be sleeping, but in this period of rest, the Soul is always right there ready to drop in a symbol and message via a dream.

  29. Clocking how we respond to our dreams is just as significant as the dreams themselves. The more I make an effort to remember what I dream about, the deeper the reading and the healing. When I’m not dreaming about anything it’s usually a sign that I haven’t been choosing to read and be aware of everything that has taken place during the day. Our dreams are tools that support us to build a stronger and deeper connection with what we’re feeling, reading and sensing during our day.

  30. I amazed how often how I know what is next and if I’m not taking the time to feel and appreciate what is on offer I can feel at the opposite end of what just was offered. We have the opportunity to be empty of joy and be part of unstable return or we can have the feeling of enormity of a new adventure being completed with an abundance of joy to be felt in the body.

  31. I love the simple message of your dream, Rebecca. It’s priceless! I love how the soul can communicate through dreams, supporting us in daily life to become more aware of our choices and actions.

  32. The fact that we have access to our multi-dimensionality through our dreams is absolutely beautiful and to be treasured.

  33. Before Universal Medicine and when I was living in Perth, I used to have recurring dreams of needing to move to the east coast of Australia, as soon as possible and without delay. There was quite an air of desperation in those dreams and I finally did. It took a while longer to then meet Serge Benhayon and have my first session with him – and the rest, as they say, is history.

  34. When our day to day movements through life are founded on appreciation every step we take can be one of growth as we learn to let go of what we no longer supports us and live our potential.

  35. For a while now I’ve been having dreams of rapidly shifting and mutating cartoons from one picture to another. They only come as I am going to bed however (in the first 10/15 minutes before I nod off completely) they feel very disturbing and I’ve yet to read them further. Opening up to talk about the meanings behind the dreams I always find there’s a learning to be had.

  36. I’v been having some strange dreams recently, but understanding it is symbology and reading this I am able to look at them for what they are representing to me gaining a deeper understanding of myself and life rather than seeing them as a weird dream.

  37. Beautiful Rebecca. There is a lot of wisdom in your story. Appreciation is key in evolving, but without embodied appreciation we will pursue a mental ideal, and then we are definitely in the wrong train:-)

  38. We make the Soul train real when we listen to and honour how we feel. It’s not about never making a mistake but honestly reflecting and learning along the way. In fact the Soul train seems to like to pull in to stops along the way that show us what’s not true in what we do, so we can make different choices. What a ride! Thank you Rebecca for choosing the fire inside.

  39. The mind can be easily tricked but the body knows, hence the only true solidness we can have in life is through connection with our body. Our bodies are like an anchor that prevents us from getting hooked into things that are tantalising or appealing to the mind.

  40. Everything in life is telling us the truth, if we are just willing to let go of our stubbornness and favourite lies, we’ll get to see. We are supported way beyond, and in our dreams. Thank you Rebecca.

  41. An amazing appreciation of a life lived from the body and how we can unfold so much more in the process. I love how our dreams support us to deepen our relationship with self and grow forevermore.

  42. I love reading this. It is such a strong confirmation that I am on the Soul Train and how important it is to keep deepening my appreciation – appreciation is the ticket to stay on the train.

  43. Through appreciating and heeding our soulful dreams we are closing the door in the face of self-doubt or any negativity which may try and impose on us on our journey back to soul.

  44. Go Rebecca, it is amazing quite how much can be shown to us in our dreams especially when we are ready, willing and open to see what is before us for us to learn and move on from. Like with most things we can use them to evolve, and learn from or we can repeat the same patterns we are doing in the day in our dreams with seemingly little or no consequences. But knowing everything is energy means what happens in our dreams still has an effect on our body.

    1. On many occasions in my dreams, I am talking to someone and giving them some very wise advice. Then when I wake I know that the advice was for myself from my soul. What this tells me is that we already know the answers to our questions but at times we just need a little assistance to bring it all out into our every day.

  45. ” I’m choosing to take it, and I’m choosing to take the Soul train! ‘
    I will be taking the Soul train as well and I look forward to meeting everyone on it , thank you for sharing Rebecca .

  46. Also your point about not having significant dreams is fascinating. I’ve beeb having dreams in the last few days that are very blurry and non-descript – perhaps a great reflection of the energy I’m choosing in the day. Could our dreams be great indicators of the energy we choose in the day?

    1. I would have to say yes that our dreams definitely reflect the quality of the energy we choose in the day. And often I find I get to see things in my dreams that I have not been wanting to or willing to see during the day as I am more detached and so given another opportunity to see situations more clearly.

  47. I had another train dream recently. It was the right train and it was absolutely packed with people. So much so that there were no seats available apart from shared seating on the floor in one carriage. I joined the masses on the floor. Very humbling and very accepting of my part in humanity and that we are all one. These dreams never cease to amaze me.

    1. Thank you for sharing and keeping us up-to-date with your dreams, Rebecca. I fell this to be a powerful reminder to let go of individuality.

    2. I love Soul-led dreams. Mine or any one else’s. They bring such depth, quality and understanding to life.
      Gorgeous reminder here that whatever it looks like we are connected, equal, united and unfolding as one.

    3. Thank you fro the update Rebecca, I love how the theme is unfolding more and more for you and how much you are learning from your dreams. Appreciating quite how much support we have on offer we simply just have to say YES to it!

  48. Love how something that at first seems so perplexing and confusing turns into such an asset when its understood. The fact the dreams continue to inform you of whether you are on the right train or not is such an asset in helping you check how things are going and if you are heading to the right destination.

  49. Our dreams are a brilliant insight into what’s going on in our lives, I often get a fresh new perspective that allows me to have a revelation about myself or my life or see things in a new light from my dreams.

  50. Dreams do not happen by chance, they mean something, and so clearly as is expressed in your article, when we are open to that meaning, we learn something.

  51. “I had been reminded of the power of appreciation, and how I cannot grow or evolve without this.” So true Rebecca. Re-reading your post is a great reminder for me to appreciate – even – or rather especially – the small things.

  52. Such is the power of honouring and responding to our inner essence, our Soul. I’m sure for you Rebecca it must of been a confirmation and realisation that what had been in your life simply wasn’t it. I remember meeting you years ago and you hadn’t been introduced just then to Universal Medicine and I have watched the most beautiful transformation of you returning to who you truly are, it has been very inspiring.

  53. I love how our body takes every opportunity to communicate to us, even if it means telling us something in our sleep when we’re not distracted by the usual activities in our day!

  54. I have been having a lot of dreams these past few nights, mostly involving family members. But last night I had a dream that I was walking along side Elvis. He was all appropriately dressed for the weather, dressed all in black, boats, gloves and and extra rain covering. He was well kitted out. Perhaps the message is being prepare for life for all kinds of weather… and perhaps more insight may come later.
