DREAMING

'The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul...'
Carl Jung

Our dreams are a navigation system, a guidance that speak to us when we sleep, when we completely close ourselves down to the outside world, we go within and if we learn how to interpret their messages, we can find answers that we have long been searching for.


I have always been a dreamer, what I mean by that is someone who has very vivid dreams often and I will remember them, most of the time. We all dream but sometimes we just don't have any recollection of them upon waking. This can be for a number of reasons but I believe it's a choice to connect with them or not. I've grown up with a Mum who loves talking about and analysing dreams and for as long as I can remember my Mum and I have discussed what we've dreamt about and I think this has therefore become a very natural practice for me. My dreams regularly give me strong messages or guidance about what is going on in my life or something I may need to address. They are a key for me that unlocks that 'intimate sanctum of my soul' and I use them to figure out what I might not be figuring out consciously.


Jung described this as a way for the unconscious to become conscious or if the ego has become too one sided and imbalanced, the dreams will highlight that and bring you back to your path so you can become more integrated. This definitely resonates with me and my dreams, sometimes are as clear as day, as if my subconscious is shouting at me but sometimes they are so weird it's hard to know what to make of them.


Jung also talks about how we need to learn the symbols of dreams but then drop them completely because yes these symbols are useful but they can keep us caged in their meaning. In order to really make sense of our dreams we need to tune in with our inner self, what is our intuition telling us the dream means? We can use the symbols to help with making sense of them but it's vital we explore why that symbol is showing up for us. If we begin to allow this part of ourselves to speak to us, then we strengthen it and it can become a friend whom we can call on when we are struggling to figure things out.


The other side to dreaming is our hopes and dreams. Dreaming about what we want in life is a beautiful thing to do. Taking the time to really tap into what we desire is another practice that isn't as simple as it sounds. The thing is, we can dream and dream til our hearts are content but that isn't going to make those dreams manifest. We need to unblock what is stopping us from manifesting those dreams and take action, balanced action, action where we are completely in our worth.


So, with that in mind, a few things to ponder or journal about;


~ Do you remember your dreams? If so, what can you decipher from them?

~ If you don't tend to remember them, maybe start a dream journal to begin that connection.

~ What dreams or intentions do you have for this year?

~ What dreams or intentions do you have for this coming month?

~ What is stopping you from making these dreams a reality? What limiting beliefs do you have?

~ Where in your childhood did you pick up those beliefs?

~ How can you give yourself what you need to re-programme those beliefs?

~ What three action steps can you take towards manifesting your dreams?


If you want to go into this further, I would love to explore it with you, just contact me. If not, enjoy your dreaming journey loves.


Much love & blessings,
