beyond the limitations of the con- scious mind, connecting you to what is called higher conscious- ness, universal consciousness or divine mind. So when you go to sleep you begin a journey into a differ- ent reality, one that opens the gates of the universe to you and puts at your disposal the wisdom not only inher- ent in you but shared by all.


If your life were a reality show,


your subconscious would be the


camera, always on, al- ways recording impres- sions of your daily experi-


ence. While you go about your


day to day life, the camera stays on capturing thoughts, feelings, and actions – yours and the effect of others’ actions on you. That is why you might often dream you are back in school preparing to take a test and unable to find the combination to your locker – a dream you share with many other people. A dream like this often comes up when you feel unpre- pared for a particular situation in your life – when you feel you are


r dreams are ones as your dreams can ur life for the better.”


being tested and fear you don’t have the knowledge or resources to meet the test. The subcon- scious searches through the archives and brings forward the perfect imagery to convey this feeling – a similar experience from your school days.


In this sleep-deprived modern life you may not often remember your dreams so here is a technique to begin to work with your dreams. Your subconscious responds to intention so set an intention that you are going to remember your dreams and then make sure to record them as you have them. Remembering a dream is a little like pulling a thread on a sweater. If all you have is the edge of the thread, you can follow it up until you see the larger design. So work with these steps to catch those threads and find the design of your dream:


Keep a dream journal and pen by your bed. You can buy one of those lovely dream journals sold in the larger bookstores or just keep a small notepad. The journal form itself doesn’t matter. Your regular use of it does.


Each night before going to sleep mentally affirm that you are open to remembering a dream. That’s all you have to do. Just be open to the possibility and see what happens.


When you awake with a dream in your consciousness, take time then to write it down. Note


everything you can recall – the actions, feelings, characters, colors, setting – everything that you can describe.


Don’t analyze your dreams, just record them. You are beginning a practice of working with your dreams so it is important to just get in the habit of writing them down. As you do so you will find it easier and easier to remember your dreams. And remember your dreams come from a part of you that is always connected to spiritual truth.


As you work with the informa- tion provided in each issue your dream world will become richer and more knowable. Send in your questions and those dream experiences that baffle you. You are about to embark on a journey to the center of your being – and a glorious journey it is!
