Full Moon in Pisces: The Art of Practical Dreaming

Pisces full Moons in particular aren’t designed for sleeping – they’re meant for dreaming. Dreaming is a natural process, during which the mind creates narratives while sleeping. For millennia, dreams were held to be messages from the gods, or from divine spark within. Now it’s more fashionable to call them images from the unconscious mind.

Either way, dreams can be a powerful tool for solving life’s everyday problems. In her book, “The Committee of Sleep,” author Deirdre Barrett explains how artists, scientists and other creative people use dreams as a means to discover innovative solutions to challenges. By simply asking the mind before going to sleep to devise a solution to a problem, more than half of participants in research studies experienced a dream within a week which addressed the problem, and 25 percent actually solved it.

To use your dreams to solve your problems, you first have to remember them. Everyone dreams, but not everyone can recall them upon waking. Dreaming, like thinking, requires energy. Therefore in order to improve your dream memory, you first task is to get plenty of sleep.

Before you go to bed, make an intention to remember your dreams. When you wake, write down every dream image that you remember, no matter how small, in a dream journal. With consistent practice, many people will experience improvement in their dream recall in as quickly as a week. Don’t give up if it doesn’t happen overnight.

When keeping a dream journal, it helps to record your entries in first person present tense (e.g. “I am driving down a street covered with water.” or “I eat the apple.”); it makes the dream more real. Creating a title for each dream will help you identify trends in dreams over time. For the astrologically minded, you can write down the Moon phase and zodiacal sign it transits as another indicator of your personal patterns.
