Well, look there!..

Today is 1/11/11.

How symmetrical. The numbers won’t line up again like this for another hundred years.

Consulting my numerology references, I’m told that 1 is good for leadership, goal achievement, willpower, unconventionality, creativity, individuality and great potential for success.

Seems like we could be tapping into the power of one today.

Got a goal you want to achieve?

A habit you want to break?

Something you want to succeed?

A dream you want to make real?

You could do worse than to take action on it on 1/11/11. Especially if you started at 1:11 in the afternoon….

And set your intention that the power of all of those ones will help you to make things happen.

You’re number one!

And we continue on on the natures of obstacles – the ones that are sent to strengthen our resolve vs the ones to tell us “You’re on the wrong path.”

So how do we know which is which?

Well, first I listen to my gut instincts. If they’re saying “Oh no you didn’t…” to the block, it’s usually a good sign that this is a sign of challenge, not “turn back, Dorothy…”, so I do my best to try to keep going.

But what if I find myself questioning the quest I’m on?

Well, that’s a good reason to step back and evaluate, using both head and heart, for the logic of the head will help me find blind spots that may have previously escaped me, and the intuition of the heart will help me sort the challenging dreams from the “too-cussed-stubborn-to-quit” experiences.

I ask myself questions…

Questions like

  • Why do I want to achieve this (remember to do the repeated “why” we talked about in a previous post)?
  • Is this in keeping with my Life Mission?
  • Do I think that I want this when what I actually want is what I think this goal will bring me? If this is the case, is there a better way to get that attached aspect?
  • If I had a friend who wanted to do this, would I be cheering her on, or foaming the runways for the crash?
  • Do I have beliefs that are in conflict with this goal? Do I need to work on changing my beliefs before I can make my Dream happen? (EFT is very helpful for this)
  • Are issues with self-esteem getting in the way of my Dream (fear of failure, fear of success, worthiness, etc)? Do I need to work on myself first?
  • Do I have the right goal but I’m just trying to get there in an inefficient way? Am I pounding my head against a wall, when all I have to do is stop pounding, look, and walk around the end of the wall?
  • Do I need help? Do I need to get together with other folks to make this happen?
  • Is this a good Dream, but the timing’s not quite right?
  • Is there a better way to achieve what I’m trying to do?
  • Have I taken appropriate and productive action to make my Dream come true?
  • Have I tried energetic ways of supporting my goal ( manifestation, attraction, clearing negative energy, cleaning with intention,etc)?

It’s good to take some quiet time, free of distractions, and contemplate questions like this. ( Go ahead, lock yourself in the bathroom if you need to…) You can also try some form of divination, such as tarot or pendulum  dowsing or use the process of programming your dreams to give you answers to your questions that is detailed elsewhere in this blog. Questions and processes such as these can give you insight so you know whether it’s best to keep on going, chose a different route or revise your goals altogether to bring them into alignment into what you truly want.

And this can be just what you need…

Hi folks,

Do you ( like me) love to hit the snooze bar on the alarm clock for “Five more minutes…” of sleep?

Well, now you can use that delicious snooze to access your psychic ability.

Got a question, problem or issue you’re chewing over but can’t seem to resolve? Want to tap into your natural intuition for more insight?

Let’s try the “Five minutes more…” dream technique…

For this technique, you need:

  • An alarm clock
  • A  morning where you can sleep as late as you like
  • The ability to hit that snooze bar and go back to sleep
  • Enough fatigue to do so
  • Understanding housemates who will not insist you “get up now”

(Sounds like fun already, right?)

Before you go to sleep that night, set the alarm to wake you at a point where you estimate you will be rested but still able to drop easily back into slumber.

When the alarm sounds, hit the snooze bar then return to bed.

Allow yourself to drop off, thinking about the question you’re trying to sort out.

And watch for the dreams that are likely to pop up in those five (or six or eight…) minutes.

If you dream, you’ll often find vivid dreams with pertinent and useful information on your issue, once you interpret them (and we all know how to do that here, don’t we 🙂 ?..)

How does this work?

  • Having just come out of sleep and turning right back in, you’re still in alpha/theta or even a touch of delta. This is where your intuition hangs out.
  • Because you’ve likely just come out of dream state, you’re still half-way there and it’s easier and quicker to get back.
  • By thinking about your question as you drop back off, you’re programming the unconscious mind to access information on it.
  • By only allowing yourself the length of a snooze cycle or two, you allow yourself to go just deep enough to dream, but don’t go deep enough that you can’t remember your dreams.

If you do this on a regular basis, you’ll condition your unconscious. You’ll find yourself able to focus-dream the answers you need more consistently and easily.

And who couldn’t use that?

Give it a try…

See you soon

Hey there, fellow dreamers…

In my last dream post, I talked about some ways that you can take some control about when, how and how often you experience psychic dreams.

Why would you want to do that?

Well, some examples of times when you might chose to limit psychic dreams or not dream that particular night are

  • the night before an important meeting or big test (you want to be rested and focused on the task at hand);
  • when you’re sick (illness can throw bizarre inaccurate twists into dreams, and psychic dreams can prevent you getting the rest you need to heal);
  • shared intimate experiences such as sex, death or childbirth (there’s such a thing as too much closeness…);
  • when there’s nothing that you can do (disasters on the other side of the planet);
  • when you need to be dreaming your own dreams, as opposed to someone else’s;

See how that works?

There may be some times that it’s a good idea to use the suggestion technique in the previous post, or other means to say that tonight’s not a good night for a psychic dream.

To keep your gift alive, you do need to use it, but not necessarily all of the time. Given that, it’s good to think about things at bedtime and consciously chose whether to open yourself to psychic dreams or not.

This will not only develop balance, so you get the rest you need, but also start developing your control over your more general psychic abilities- control that you’ll be glad to have later along (remember when I said that dreams are often the way that your psychic ability comes out to play first?…)

It’s also a good idea to incorporate a suggestion that, if this is a “non-dream” night, and there is urgent information that you need immediately for your own safety, health and well-being; or that of someone you care for, that the information will come through immediately and clearly ( “…This Night Is Pre-Empted For A Special Report…”)

So strike the balance between psychic information and rest, and have a wonderful day…

Hi there, folks

I’ve been going on and on for some time now about dreams, psychic dreams, how to interpret your dreams, techniques to working with your dreams and so forth…

There’s still more to go on this topic, but I’m going to diverge for a moment or two.

I got an email recently from a person who’s been following these dream posts, but is dealing with a different topic surrounding psychic dreaming- getting information that is unwanted, unnecessary and overly personal.

So what do you do when this happens?

  • When you dream of things that you can’t do anything about?
  • When you dream of things that are overly personal  (I think “none of my business” when it happens to me)?
  • When you dream of things that are traumatic and leave you drained?
  • When you can’t get a good night’s sleep because of all of the psychic traffic coming through your dreams?

What then ?

Some folks will consciously or unconsciously try to shut down their gifts for a number of reasons, including this one. That can be workable as a short term coping strategy, but there are a number of reasons that I’ll examine in the future that this isn’ t great as long-term solution.

It’s far better to learn how to manage  and gain control over your gift, so it can serve you as it was meant to.

With that in mind, did you know that you can

  • set parameters on incidents of psychic input (ex:only when I consciously declare I am willing to receive) ?
  • in effect, set “office hours” which are the only time you’re willing to receive (ex: no non-emergency visions while commutin)?
  • set limitations on the kind of info you’re willing to receive (ex: not to share other peple’s romantic encounters)?
  • set limitations on what can happen where (ex: no deceased folks in messy condition in my bedroom)?

And so forth…

There’s a number of ways to do this sort of thing.

The simplest way is one that you already know about…

When you go to sleep, you can give yourself directions about what kind of psychic dreaming you will accept:

Like ” I will only have psychic dreams when I consciously ask to…”

Or ” I will only dream of information that is useful to me”

Or ” My psychic dreams will come in ways that support my health and happiness.”

Or ” The morning after a psychic dream, I will be well-rested.”

You get the kind of thing.

Always make these statements positive ( ex  “I am rested” as opposed to ” I am not tired.”) as negative words such as “no”, “not” and the like tend to mess up the process.

So remember you can access your psychic abilities through dreams…

And you can chose how those dreams occur…

Now there’s a useful thought.

On my last post on dream interpretation (11/24/09) , we went into the issue of folks who don’t remember their dreams and the ones who don’t know if they dream at all.

You might be one of those people 😉 .

We talked about dreams being a part of the REM state of sleep, and the fact that, since most of us experience REM, at least of us are dreaming, whether we go so deep into sleep that we remember it or not.

I went into a simple method to reprogram yourself to remember your dreams.

Everybody up to speed?


Now let’s build on that.

In the whole series of posts I’ve done on dreams( from Oct. 2nd onwards) we’ve talked about how dreams are often messages from your intuition or your unconsciousness.

We’ve talked about the symbology of dreams and how to successfully interpret your own individual dream symbols.

Well enough.

But what if you tend to get dreams full of obscure symbols that you just can’t find a meaning for?

What if sugar plum moose in tutus cha cha through the drive thru lane in your dreams?

What if you dream of doing the back stroke for miles through a sea of peppermint schnapps?

What if, while you sleep, you encounter Albert Einstein, who takes one look at you and shouts “A  ha!” and then runs off into the darkness?

What then?

(disclaimer- these dreams are not ones I have had nor have I heard of anyone else having them. I’m just having fun with examples 🙂 )

There’s a simple solution.

Remember how we programmed ourself in the last post to remember our dreams? How we told ourselves as we dropped off to sleep” Tonight I will dream and I will remember my dreams?…

Well, we can add to that.

Are you vexed by chronic dreams with obscure symbols?

Then as you drop off to sleep, tell yourself (silently or out loud, dependant on your situation)…

  • “Tonight, I will dream.”
  • ‘I will remember my dreams.”
  •  ” And my dreams will come to me in symbols that I easily and clearly understand….”

Simple, no?

But,very effective.

This may work for you immediately. It may take some time ( every body’s different- thank goodness!) But it will work….

And you can start benefitting more easily from what your dreams have to tell you.

There’s still not an end to the dreaming. See you soon

We’ve spent quite a bit of time looking at symbolic dreams and how to get the information they bring to us.

But what if you don’t dream? Or don’t remember your dreams?

Full dreams tend to occur during the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) part of sleep. With few exceptions, most people experience REM at least once per sleep cycle (whether that is a full 8 hours or even during many naps), so data indicates that most of us are dreaming on a regular basis.

Many people don’t remember their dreams. Some don’t remember so deeply that they don’t even remember that they have dreamed.

That seems like a kind of impasse there, if you can’t interpret your dreams because you can’t remember them.

There is a way of working with that, though…

First, when you’re planning on interpreting your dreams, be sure you’ve got writing materials (pad and pencil/crayon and sketch pad/ birch bark and quill dipped in crushed berries/whatever floats your boat!) right next to the bed.

(When passing from dreaming to waking state, you come through several different levels of brain waves. If, on top of that, you visit the bathroom, go get a drink, then have to hunt around for something to write on, you might as well kiss that dream goodbye now and save yourself the trouble.)

Then when you’re in bed and drifting off to sleep, tell yourself repeatedly “Tonight, I will dream and I will remember my dream…”

If you sleep alone, you can do this out loud. If you share sleeping quarters, do this silently in your mind (it’ll work just as well).

The silent method is because you don’t want to weird out your sleep buddy, plus it’s far harder to dream if said buddy keeps thumping you with a pillow and saying “Will you hush up?!!!

How does this work? As you pass from full alertness (Beta waves) down through Alpha, Theta and Delta waves, your mind becomes more receptive to suggestions you give yourself. You’re, in effect, retraining your body to remember.

(For the record, this is an extremely simple form of self-hypnosis. If you have questions about that, please feel free to comment or email).

This may work pretty quickly, or it may take more time to work, based on parameters such as how deep you sleep, how receptive you are to your own suggestions, how much your sleep buddy hits you with that pillow, etc.; but the bottom line is that, if you keep doing it, you will begin to remember your dreams.

And, lucky you! You just happen to know how to interpret them…

More fun and games with dreaming on the way..

We’ve dreamed…

We’ve written down that dream…

We’ve marked each important aspect that jumped out at us…

We’ve asked the two magic questions-

  • What is ( your word here) to me?


  • How does (your word here) make me feel?  ….

We’ve written our answers down…

Now we’re ready to interpret the dream.

Look at your notes on what the different dream aspects meant to you and how they made you feel. As you look at them, you’ll gradually see a new story emerging- the story behind the story.

This is what your symbolic dream is trying to tell you.

To give you an example, let’s take our sample dream from the Nov. 3 post ” Dream Interpretation- Finding the Clues to the Hidden Story“.

In this dream, the key aspects are bear, running, exhausted, chipmunk, door, and  falling.

Now, if this were my dream/being expressed in my symbolic language, it’d mean-

  • the bear ( hibernation/need to sleep) is chasing me
  • I’m running (avoiding that I need more rest)
  • I’m exhausted (at the end of my resources)
  • I reach a door ( a significant point in my life)
  • I’m falling ( in this case, getting sick because I’m worn out)
  • I see a chipmunk ( chipmunks tend to be lucky symbols for me)

So the hidden story is that I’m in desperate need of additional rest/ sleep or I’ll get sick, but that I still have time to choose a more fortunate option(chipmunk) and avoid getting sick..

So I think I’ll go take a nap now…

See how that works?

Right now, this may seem like a long and complicated process to use to interpret a dream. As you get used to it, though, it’ll get simpler. I’m  having you write things down and mark them to start with, so you don’t miss something and so the process is clear.With practice, you’ll be able to fly through the same process in your head (which saves a lot of time and trees…)

You may still want to write your dreams down. Some folks like a record of what they dreamed and what happened. Some dreams predict long-term things and a record can be very handy in such cases.

So, now it’s time to try this on your dreams. Have fun.

Coming up – info on controlled dreaming…
