I have been interested in dreams for a long time. I
have read innumerable dream books, participated in
dream classes, and interpreted my own and others' dreams
as a means of emotional growth and spiritual well being.
I have always been attracted to the
concept that anyone who follows their dream life and
honors their dream-maker, while using information
gleaned from the symbols and themes found in them, will have
greater spiritual enrichment than anyone blindly
following religious dogma. By simply keeping a dream journal,
you will discover that you have your own personal
symbol bank. As you continue to work on how these
symbols affect you, you will move deep thoughts and
beliefs from unconscious to conscious realms and might
even encounter the sounds and songs of your soul.
In my life view, dream interpretation is a very worthy endeavor.
I have been amazed at the number of clients who
spontaneously share a dream during a session. They might
be discussing some issue or a past experience, and
they remember a dream they want to share. From observing
this behavior, I have concluded that there are
levels of our unconscious selves working to help us learn,
grow, and evolve. When sharing and reflecting on the dream
and its symbols, the client is able to do healing work on a much
more profound level.
It seems that our culture and this age on earth is
over-involved with outside stimuli and external
experience. We are out of balance. We need to
recognize that we have an inner life, and the ways in
which we tune in to our inner life significantly affects our
external experiences. By continually affirming
our inner life by recalling dreams, holding them as
mystery, and sharing them, we honor and affirm our
I have worked with people who occasionally use dreams
for enrichment or to solve specific emotional issues.
I have also worked with people who will contact me for one
session to work with a single dream, a recurring dream, or
a dream theme. I believe that all varieties of dream work
have value, and I invite you to engage deep aspects of yourself
through dream work as it is called forth in you.
