Here’s a cool thing to consider: Your dreams are messages from you to you. (I’m referring to dreams and nightmares, and not to premonitions and psychic stuff that is clearly for another post, but not for here.) With the concept of dreams as information from you to you in mind, think about how affirming some of those sexual dreams are! Even those dreams about old lovers that seem to come out of the blue are luscious informational messages from your subconscious back to your conscious mind. Yep, all those mid-night fantasies that leave you smoldering in the morning are actually ways that your psyche is sending you love and acceptance. Cool ehh?
What? You don’t remember your dreams? Hmm…. Even not remembering your dreams is a message from you to you. It is a message that something is being “stuffed” that needs to come out. If this is the case, just prior to falling asleep, make a statement such as, “I give me permission to remember my dreams.” Then, when you wake in the morning, have a pen and pad of paper or journal at the side of your bed where you can reach it without making much movement. When you first stir, the feeling of your dream, if not details, will remain until you jolt into the day. Try to awaken slowly, naturally, and ease into consciousness with pieces of your dream intact. Then write whatever you recall, and whatever you feel, in your journal. (Eventually, you can learn to program yourself to dream about whatever you want to dream about, and can even dream lucidly, and make adjustments when you decide the direction of your dream is not going where you want it to go.)
When you have a few moments to yourself, read your notes from your journal. Start by being all the components of your dream. For instance, if your dream takes place in a house, start the process by being the house and describe yourself as the house. Now I am a house and I am small/large, solid/weak, in good/bad shape etc. As the house, are you a well-built house? Warm or cold? Old or new? Inviting or repulsive?
Continue to be every aspect, every player, and the environment of your dream. Pay closest attention to the feeling of your dream. And don’t worry if you only recall a tiny snippet of your dream; it will still contain a wealth of information.
Remember, it is the feeling that is most informative. And as you practice being ultra aware of your feelings and of your dream content, you will remember more and more details. Great dreamers such as Albert Einstein and Henry Ford used dreams to solve problems, and you can too!
