In our dream state we can perceive past, present, and future. When we dream, we have the opportunity to commune with our family members who have passed on, some of who we may have never met on the physical plane. Here we can discover important messages to protect our family, to guide us on the spiritual path, and to provide inspiration. Dreams may heal us, or they can harm us, it all depends on our level of awareness. Ancestors taught the Santis to drink wayusa tea every morning before sunrise, to further illuminate their consciousness during dream time and to ignite their ability to interpret the spiritual messages into the material world. The teaching of their elders is that of awakening to panoramic clarity, protecting the body and spirit, honoring ancestors, and navigating our dreams with open eyes.
