your greatest free tools for insight and
self-understanding. Throughout mankind's history, dreams have been an
important source of guidance, inspiration, prophecy, prediction and
problem solving. In every culture, we find some version of "sleeping
on a problem" before making a decision. What is this wonderful
dimension that is so near and yet so far from our reach?
need to realize that we are spending 10 days out of every
month in the dream state. That's a third of your life that you're
missing if you're not working with your dreams. We all leave the body
every night of our life to go out and be taught and trained. We are
given valuable lessons and insights into our daily life by our higher
self and team of teachers, whose sole purpose is to help guide us in
our self-growth here on the earth plane. Our dreams give us positive
messages about our life direction and show us what needs to be
changed in order to create rich and fulfilling lives.

dreams can also be a tremendous source of inspiration for art, music,
writing and other creative endeavors. You can learn to program
yourself to have a dream about a specific problem or project by
sitting on the side of the bed before going to sleep and saying:
will have a dream about (the problem) tonight.
will remember the dream.
will wake up and write the dream down.
is a very powerful tool like a computer. Whatever you
program into it, is what you receive. Be sure and keep a pad of paper
and a pen by your bedside. Write the dream down immediately after you
have it or talk it into a tape recorder. If you wait until morning,
you are more likely to forget the dream.
dreams (or what I call "teaching" dreams) occur between
3:00 and 5:00 am, or happen just before awakening. The dreams that
occur when you first go to bed are usually Just clearing out the
day's mental clutter and can be affected by what you ate, read or
just watched on television.
off limits in the dream state. We are open to experiencing
all levels of self: all fears, frustrations, suppressed images,
visionary insights and unknown territory. We will become more
comfortable with all dream images when we learn to welcome them
(whatever they are) as symbolic messengers of self.
you will be given a nightmare to call your attention to a
problem. Where pleasant dreams may be forgotten easily, a nightmare
can scare you into remembering the dream. Nightmares show us our
fears that have been blown way out of proportion, or something that
is affecting us negatively.
earthquake, flood, fire or tidal wave, a disaster
indicates a sudden change in some area of your life. A flood means an
emotional upheaval and an earthquake means a big rearrangement in
your affairs. Disaster dreams usually indicate turning points or
opportunities to take advantage of a new direction.
love in a dream, this represents a merger of your own
masculine and feminine energies. We are all working to balance the
male and female polarities within our being. The feminine energy is
our sensitive, intuitive, creative side while the masculine is our
strong, assertive side. Sex in a dream can also mean that you are
integrating the qualities you associate with that person within your
are great fun and usually mean you are consciously out
of the body. You are free to explore anywhere you like. If you are
flying around and start to lose altitude, it simply suggests that you
have a fear of exploring higher dimensions and breaking out of
in which you are traveling indicates whether you are on
the right track in your life situation now. If you are going up in a
dream (up a mountain, up a road, ladder, staircase, elevator, etc.)
you are going in the right direction. If you are going up and down,
such as on a roller-coaster, it means your energy is scattered and
needs to get centered.
are all in symbols and once you understand the positive
meaning behind the symbols, you will find that they are easy to work
with and interpret. A good place to begin is to realize that everyone
and everything in the dream represents a part of you. You are the
producer, writer, actor and director of your life story.
female figures represent your own masculine and feminine
energies. A child represents your child part; an aged person an old
part of self (either one that is wise or a part that is dying because
you have outgrown it). The colors, numbers, animals, scenery, clothes
and letters are also significant.

new skill becomes a natural, flowing easy part of your life. I tested
the symbols in The Dream Book: Symbols for Self-Understanding
with audiences for 15 years, and they have been hitting right on with
people throughout the world.
the key tool I teach in helping people to center their
energy and to get a recall on their dreams. Meditation helps us to
develop a growing sense of serenity and self-awareness. By sitting in
the silence for 20 minutes a day, you achieve a deep relaxation of
body, mind and spirit. You begin to see how you set up your life
experiences and the lessons of each situation.
of meditation are good, but in our high speed society, it's
important to protect our energy by closing down at the end. I have
given out this mediation technique throughout the world for the last
and most enjoyable way to meditate is to listen to your
favorite songs and music for the full 20 minutes. While sitting with
your spine erect, you’re aligning your energy to the God force.
This 20 minute period, however, is not our only meditation practice.
We endeavor to practice the meditation attitude in watching our
thoughts and behavior throughout the day, and working with our dreams
at night. You will begin to see how your thoughts, words and actions
set up your reality and life experiences. You will also discover the
many gifts, talents and abilities within you as you explore the inner
self. You can learn to create a reality that works for you!
