Dream Guide

Friday, 07 February 2014 20:32  by Jessica W.

Dream detective work can help us examine the patterns in our subconscious that can contribute to our emotions during the waking hours. It is simple to do but can yield fascinating results.

This week, try keeping a dream journal. Don’t write every detail of every dream down. But, in the mornings before you get out of bed, write down the key events or details that stand out most. If a minor detail particularly catches your attention, write it down too. Do you remember running? Forgetting your keys? Your desk being in the wrong place?

Over time, you may notice recurring themes. Things that you normally accept suddenly recur in your dreamscape. This helps you identify patterns in your dream that can allow you to self-discover.

What does the desk represent for you? What are you running from? Why do you forget your keys? The answers to these types of images give us insight on our emotions, fears, hopes and triggers during everyday life. They can help us identify the emotional patterns that support or harm our mental health and create behaviors that change our lives for the better.
