Working with a Dream

Dreams not only provide us with information about ourselves, they can also serve as creative inspiration for poems or stories, paintings or inventions.

Ten Ways to Grow with Dreaming:

  1. Paint your dream.
  2. Write your dream in a three-line poem, capturing its essence.
  3. Compose a short story or an essay detailing your dream.
  4. Dialogue with your dream characters - one at a time.
  5. Dialogue with your dream symbols.
  6. Play with the notion that the dream characters and dream symbols are all different parts, different aspects of yourself. Ah, what then?
  7. Daydream and finish an unfinished dream in any way you would like it to turn out. Or redream a total dream, changing whatever you want to change.
  8. Write down your ideal dream. What would it be about? What elements would it include?
  9. Talk your dream out loud. Listen to the words you use, especially the phrases you may repeat. Listen for emotional as well as factual content. Ask yourself: to what situation in your present life do those same phrases and feelings relate?
  10. Follow up on the intuitions you tap in dreams. Write a letter to the old friend you dreamed about. Call your mother on the phone when you dream about her. Wear a red shirt on the morning after a red dream. Look for connections all day long.

Happy dreaming.
