Tame Your Scary Dreams
This is what Larry Page said when he described waking from a dream with his idea for Google.com:
“When a really great dream shows up,
Let's talk about creativity…
Jeff Taylor’s Monster.com, Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, Paul McCartney’s songs “Yesterday” and “Let it Be”, the writings of Robert Lewis Stevenson, William Butler Yeats, Samuel Coleridge and Jack Kerouac, Elias Howe’s invention of the sewing machine, Colonel Harold Dickson’s dream that led to the discovery of oil in Kuwait, Jack Nicklaus’ famous golf swing, Friedrich Kekule’s discovery of the structure of the benzene molecule, the art and writings of the surrealists, and all the unnamed dreamers out there bringing new things into the world every day, all inspired by dreams.
Would you like information on interpersonal relationships? Personal growth? Health and healing? Spiritual connection? Adventure? Inspiration? Insight? Answers to life questions?
It’s all there. Every time you dream, something comes through, even if it’s a scary dream, and that “aha” moment is a feeling of real healing. It is an internal shift towards wholeness and you are never the same again. You have expanded your knowing and your life, in little ways and big.
Jeremy Taylor says: “Dreams come in the service of health and wholeness”.
I say: “Why not mine your dreams for their hidden gems?”
Research indicates we may dream at least 25% of our lives. That means by the time we are forty years old, we will have dreamed about ten years of that time, and this refers to studies on night-time dream sleep. Most people have no idea of what to do with those nightly visions, or those daydreams, and those funny hunches and waking dreamlike moments. So they are ignored and forgotten.
But what if we can catch dreams and play with them, dig in and explore, and see what surprising gifts they bring?
Through dreams we can open to possibility, heal what’s ready to be healed, and regain everyday magic. We can revitalize our lives.
This is about being able to identify, guide, and align the deep story of your life as it’s unfolding while you are living it. It allows you to have a little adventure every day by stepping into a reliable source of personal power and inspiration.
And it’s about catching those unexpected ideas.
Dream exploration helps us come to a sacred epiphany; our deep core self comes through to serve us through the symbols and feelings of dreams and images.
You do not have to remember a nighttime dream to be a dreamer. We dream all day, through our imaginings, sensations, and the odd little coincidences that show up for us. The place to start is to decide this part of life is of value too, and the dreams will come.
I will help you develop your personal dreaming practice, and you'll experience a larger, more inspired view of your life. Scary dreams will transform. Your dreams will grow, and you will remember many more.
I hope you will:
Realize the true power and magic of your dreams and the healing images they bring.
Value sharing dreams with others as a way to build community.
Take action in your life based on the wisdom you gain from your dreams.
Find the enhanced creativity your dreams will bring.
