January 2015 Dreamer Sight Newsletter
Hello, and a joyful January, and 2015, to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter.
The photo above is me as a little girl, to represent this new year,
and seeing "with the eyes of a child". Everything is
a delight, and anything is possible!
Today's issue has 2 articles, the first on looking outside the
frames of our eyeglasses, or maybe even past our limiting beliefs.
The second article is on dreams, and what leads to them.
My vision is always on my mind, so I immediately thought of eyeglass
frames as another way I had "boxed myself in". Where else might I
be unwilling to think (or see!) outside of the box, or not
reach out? I've been consciously looking past visual boundaries
lately, which is kind of fun. I feel like a mischievous child getting
away with something!
Vision: Looking beyond the frame
Since I got eyeglasses when I was so young, I can hardly remember
a time when I wasn't wearing them. I've imagined myself as a tot,
looking around curiously, eyes eagerly open to see the flowers or
other visual delights. If I'm honest though, I feel like I'm making
this up. I suspect I always had a myopic mindset, more interested
in looking at what was happening inside my busy brain than
what was in front of my eyes.
From an early age I was fascinated by words. So when I first
heard "myopic" used to mean narrow-minded instead of
nearsighted, I was stung. Could this be me?! Recently I glanced
out a wide window with a vertical bar midway, the end of one of
the panes of glass which slid sideways to open to
the outside. I started to look past the bar to the far pane,
then pulled my gaze back as it hit the "fence". I was more
comfortable looking out of the near side of the window!
Look at your own behavior, or thoughts -- might you be in a rut
and not even realize it? "I've always done it that way", or
"That's how my parents taught me" is not necessarily
a reason to continue, especially if it no longer feels good, or is leading
to unwanted consequences. It's your life, and if it's not
working it's your job to to fix it. Reach outside of that box
you're in. Heck, reach for the stars!

the frames of my eyeglasses, click

I invite you to examine your own dreams for what might have led to
them. Does that angry person remind you of someone in your waking
life? Does the flood in your dream match the feeling of overwhelm
when you're awake? Often if the dream story seems strange, investigating
the feelings can lead somewhere. If you're afraid in a dream, who
feels like a monster to you? Your boss, maybe? Our dreams are always
trying to give us clues to help us live a happier life. We just
have to be a good dream detective to decipher them!
Dreams: Hunting for the seeds of a dream
Where do dreams come from? Sometimes it's obvious, that dream
villian looking exactly like the bad guy in the TV crime
drama you watched before you went to bed. Other times it's
more subtle. It's endlessly fascinating to me how the
human brain makes connections between events we might think
Earlier this week I received an email holiday greeting from a
guy I had a big crush on in high school. That was many years
ago, we never dated, and we've had nearly no contact since.
That night I dreamed a loser guy I was involved with 20 years ago
wanted to get back together! I knew my brain had made this
link, yet the high school guy was anything but a loser. What was
the connection between the successful guy I imagined dating,
and the guy who was a waste of my time?
Maybe my dream was telling me it was good I never got
together with the high school guy,
that there was some similarity between him and the guy I did
date which I couldn't see. Who knows?
If you're interested in exploring your
dreams with me, consider a
Dream Coaching session.
I'd love to work with you!
