Taking a look at our dreams can add insight and enrichment to our lives. I use Jeremy Taylor’s method of dreamwork. His basic principles are that dreams come only in the service of health and wholeness, and that the dreamer knows the meaning of her own dreams. According to Carl Jung, dreams put us in touch with the universal unconsciousness, making my dreams your dreams and vice versa. Dreams are the way our unconscious mind attempts to get the attention of the conscious mind, using metaphor and symbols. When we are ready to acknowledge and work on an issue, we will remember the parts of the dream that will give us that message of healing to help us with the issue. If we’re not ready to face an issue, we probably won’t remember the dream. Dreamwork can be used for many purposes. I have a friend who helps couples look at their dreams to treat infertility. Dreams can serve us in times of indecision, grief and illness. If you are interested, you can find out more from the International Association for the Study of Dreams.
