August 2016 Newsletter
Hello, and an amazing August to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. The photo above was taken
at the end of an energy workshop, where we all sat together outside
around a firepit. Spending time with people who share my interests feels
good to me. Are you doing this for yourself?
Today's issue has an article on using your dreams to solve problems.
Can your dreams solve that problem?
Dreaming is a separate state of consciousness from the waking
one you're in now while you read this. Sometimes dreams
seem to make no sense, and sometimes they make perfect
sense. It's just that "dream logic" is so different!
Someone in a dream workshop years ago shared her short dream about
a nefarious character, an obvious "bad guy". In the dream he was
carrying an open umbrella. It was only raining under the umbrella,
right onto his head, nowhere else -- no wonder he wasn't nice!
This was so creative and unusual I still remember it.
Many well-known artists, musicians, writers, and inventors have gotten
inspiration from their dreams. You might have heard about Elias Howe
coming up with the idea for the sewing machine needle, with the hole
for the thread near the point, or Paul McCartney "hearing" the melody
for his hit song "Yesterday", in a dream. So can ordinary folks use
dreams to find solutions too, or are they just entertainment for us?
Well, I think Dream Wisdom is available to everyone, and no one is
really "ordinary" -- we're all special in our own way. I've asked for
dreams to help me with a particular problem, maybe even writing a
simple request on a piece of paper I put under my pillow before I
sleep. I usually get something useful the next morning, which is
often also funny.
Once when my partner was away on an extended business trip,
I asked for a dream of us together, because I really missed him.
I dreamed of us pushing a car up a hill! My Dream Guides have a
sense of humor, and they did answer my request. Next time I
decided to be more specific with what I asked for. And my guy
and I did have a lot of fun discussing my dream.
If you have a work or relationship or health or financial
problem, why not consider asking for dream suggestions? Be
open to what you receive, and realize it may not come clearly
the next morning like a prescription. It can be enjoyable
to decipher the messages from a dream, as long as you see it
as as game, not something to get stressed about.
Finally, don't worry if you feel like you're "missing the message".
Stay open and see what comes through the next night. The Dream
Guides want to help you, not frustrate you. If their message
doesn't seem to be getting through, they'll send it differently.
Appreciate what you do get, and honor the learning by acting
on it. Just like most people, dreams don't want to be ignored!
To see a dream which clarified something important for me,
