Explore Your Dreams: Why Dreams Are Important



by Cathy Pagano December 02, 2011 05:58 PM EST
Dreams tell us stories about our day, circling an issue we're worrying at, an idea whose time has come, a funny observation that went unnoticed, a feeling that wants attention.  Most people don't remember their dreams, thinking that this night story isn't important - just another story like the tv show they watched before bed.  But these dream stories have more to do with our waking life than we know.

One of my dream groups has been meeting now for over 3 years.  They've not only bonded as a group, they have encouraged and helped each other grow.  But they wouldn't have achieve their new self-knowledge if they hadn't been working with their dreams.

Dreams can give us a picture story that shows us how we're 'really' dealing with our life - not just how our ego-consciousness thinks we're dealing with it. Dreams come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes dealing with our fears, sometimes giving us hope, often showing us how well we're balancing body, soul and spirit.  The dream stories reflect our unique view of life, so they can be serious, quirky, spiritual, artistic, riddling and mundane. 

But there are certain steps in the process of discovering who we are, the archetypal structure of this process, which are the same for everyone.

So what kind of symbols turn up when we're being asked to open up to new information and growth? 

One dreamer was at a race track with his parents, but he didn't like being there. Soon he leaves and keeps trying to get rid of extra baggage so he can journey onward. He feels the racetrack symbolizes choices, and the dream says he's getting rid of old baggage.

Another dreamer stopped traffic to try to save a horse who had fallen into some kind of excavation site. The dreamer feels her ability to move forward is stuck in a hole. But the dream shows her she's trying to deal with it in the best possible way.

A third dreamer can't find her car in a parking lot but two young men bring it to her - they even turn on the heat for her!  She feels she needs to integrate the energy of these young men if she wants to move forward in her life.

Three different dream images, all pointing to the energy of change going on in people's lives.  All three are making choices to change their lives.  Dreams like this are important because they give us hope, they show us that our efforts are paying off. And they give us tools for making those changes.

If you need insight into your life, pay attention to your dreams.  Our dreams can guide us to a happier, healthier life!

Until Next time,

Sweet Dreams!
