Dream For Your Life Blog

What are dreams? Where do they come from? Who doesn’t wonder about them? Dreams are mysterious but maybe that is part of what draws us to them. From the Greek mythological dream healer Asclepius to the more recent dream pioneers, Freud and Jung, people have been seeking guidance with their dreams. Today, there are tons of dream experts out there. I stumbled upon one of them as I listened to Oprah’s Soul Series radio program. She interviewed author, Rodger Kamenetz about his book, “The History of Last Night’s Dream.” Since then, I’ve been hooked. Rodger sees dreams as gifts and I agree. I’ve had the privilege of working with Rodger since August of 2009. This blog chronicles my experiences. It can be read in any order but it will make the most sense if you read it chronologically starting with #1.

87. Sometimes I Feel So Lost

It is true. Sometimes I feel so lost. This feeling is sometimes accompanied by questions such as “Where do I fit into the world?” “Where am I going?” “What is my purpose?” or simply, “WTF?” Sometimes this lost feeling just is. It stops me. It sometimes brings me to my...

86. Let the Words Fall Out

Dream: I’m on the Rehoboth Beach, Delaware boardwalk at a take out stand ordering food. When the food comes up it is not what I ordered. I tell the guys behind the counter, “No this is not what I ordered.” They say – “Oh sorry we will re-make it.” A woman standing...

83. Explosion of expression

81. Live your best life, NOW!

“Live your best life, NOW!” That is what woke me up from a nap the other day. It wasn’t exactly audible. But it felt like an urgent message pounding into my head. I sat straight up and laughed. Really? This simple message? Often dreams give me messages - but rarely...

80. Clumpity clump

This dreamwork experience is always full of surprises. It throws you so many curve balls that after a while you stop thinking that you have any possible idea of what to expect. My soul voice is starting to emerge. But I never dreamed (pun intended) it would come in...

79. Voices

There are voices in my head and voices that I speak. Some of them are me and some aren’t. I am not suggesting that I have a clinical psychological disorder. Although as I write this it does make me pause, wondering if what I am getting at here could have a connection...

78. A new I.D.

Dream: I walk into a room and a woman wants to show me something. She says that she is giving me a new ID. It is something I will be wearing on a permanent basis. I am not so sure about that idea. She also says, “I am not quite ready to give this to you. I am still...

77. Everything’s all right… or is it?

My voice teacher asked me to practice a song from Jesus Christ Superstar – “Everything’s All Right.” Perfect choice! I love that song. I sang it to my kids when they were small. It fits my life motto that goes something like this: No matter what happens, everything...

76. Deep wound

Dream: There is a small black scab on my arm.  I pick at it and it opens up to become large wound underneath. It feels so scary to have the insides of me exposed and open. I can see the muscles in there. I can’t imagine how it will heal. I show it to a man who...

75. The texture of fear

Dream: Mom is driving and I am in the back seat. There is a tremendous rumbling noise that is very loud and scary. As I look out the back window I see that the earth is moving back and forth. I am so scared. Now all the sudden it is pitch dark and I am afraid that Mom...

74. In the body experience (ITBE)

Over the years I’ve been intrigued with “out of body” experiences (OOBEs). People report rising up above their bodies during accidents or near death. Others discuss their experiences with “astral projection,” leaving their physical bodies, traveling in the “astral...

73. Dream dyad

Dream: I am with a woman who has a device that sprays water. She is showing me how she sprays it to clean walls and things in a house. She hands it to me and says I can try it too. There is a dirty area over a door and I begin to spray it. It starts to clean the wall....

72. Being held down

Dream: I am with a man. He is my friend and I like him. But then somehow I am lying face down on a bed and he lies on top of me. He is much bigger than me. At first its ok but then he won’t get up. He is heavy and he is squishing me. I start getting scared. I can’t...

71. Fluidity

Some days feel pointless. I wake up and I wonder what I am doing. I get this hopeless sense that life is meaningless.  When I am in this place, I feel like it is going to stay that way. I feel stuck. It feels like there is nobody or no thing that will ever be able to...
