Dreaming to Wellness

Posted by Angela on March 9, 2007

Scientists are learning more and more about our dream life and utilization of dream interpretation in achieving health and balance in our lives.  Dreams have many layers of interpretation – that is part of the wonder of symbolic language.  For example dreaming of a suitcase could literally mean travel, or it could be that you are preparing to embark upon a spiritual journey of personal growth; along with many other layers.

Dr. Jeremy Taylor works with the thesis that all dreams come in the service of health and wholeness. By exploring dreams we can often unearth early warning signs of potential or developing health issues.  What are your dreams telling you?  Exploring your dreams with others often mirrors back to you a deeper or different meaning to your dream.  You as the dreamer are the only one who will know if a suggested meaning is true – often you will have an ‘aha’ or deep sense of Yes, that’s it.  Most often the dream is reminding you of something that you already know on some level – the ‘aha’ is often recognition and brings light and attention to the topic.

I was led to explore dreamwork more deeply as I found clients wanting to discuss dreams during craniosacral or sacred massage sessions.  Perhaps the relaxed state allows someone to be willing to gently explore the possibilities, perhaps my training with symbolic language attracts them to want to discuss dream symbology – for whatever reason clients who choose to open up and discuss their dreams typically report back at the next session the incredibly difference dream exploration makes in their lives. 

So what have you been dreaming?
