Alchemy has its way of delivering the stars when you aim at the moon.

Alchemy has its way of delivering the stars when you aim at the moon.

Twelve months ago I had a vision for how the year would unfold, and set about manifesting it with the help of dream alchemy, of course.

And what a year it turned out to be! I have to smile as I look back at the Dream Sight News I wrote in May 2009, titled ‘11 years online! Changes and predictions!’ I announced the imminent launch of our weekly podcast, The Dream Show, and tentatively opened a Twitter account. I thought that was change enough for one year, but alchemy has its way of delivering the stars when you aim at the moon.

So, what happened?

Well, we’ve now been podcasting every week for a year (and will continue to do so), and have been delighted at the number of listeners across more than 26 countries who download The Dream Show every week. While most listeners live in the United States, our audience extends to the Russian Federation, China, Japan, Sweden, India, Argentina, Korea (to mention just a few) as well as across Europe and Australasia.

And it’s growing every week, thanks to people like you recommending the show in your circles.

The next thing the universe had in store for me – as a result of my alchemy – was a blog. No, two blogs. I won’t bore you with the story, but my JaneTeresa.com blog quickly blossomed as if from nowhere. It went from ‘oh, maybe I should have a blog’ to what seemed like a collusion of the universe to assist me in getting it out there immediately. The hallmark of alchemy is ‘ask and it will be given, only probably much bigger and much sooner than you imagined’.

And it seemed one blog wasn’t enough. Almost in the same week, James at Lifestylepodnetwork (where our podcast show is hosted), emailed me to say he had created a podcast blog for our show. That blog has further evolved, just last week, so now each episode has its own permanent page and it’s easier to leave comments about each show.

Next, the alchemy delivered several messengers imploring me to launch a Facebook Page. Well, suddenly that made sense, so I did, and the magic that has arisen as a result has been wonderful.

Our dream communities – those of you who listen to the podcasts (and appear as guests on the show), follow the blogs (and post comments), and ‘like’ our FaceBook page (and comment and interact there) – are blossoming every day, helping connect people interested in dreams and spreading the message. I’m enjoying meeting you all: thank you for your presence and support of the work.

Here are some recent comments:

From this blog, JaneTeresa.com

“How appropriate that you choose to blog about this very thing that is happening in my life right now. Through my dream journaling, I’ve discovered that the nightmare I had when I was 6 or 7 years old was actually a ‘blueprint’ – a presaging – of the pattern my whole life would take. I’m now using a dream alchemy process to change it, and so far, I’m having great results. What a great revelation this has been to my inner growth. I am now changing the pattern of how I view my life, my future and my part in all of it. Fascinating!” Stella

“I want to thank you both – great show JT and thanks to Margaret for going on the show – wow, some quite deep stuff came out. I always feel elated for someone when something shifts and their dreams reflect the changes.” Dreamer88

From the Facebook page

“I have learnt a lot over the years from you Jane Teresa. I have realised that when I am going through a spate of remembering my epic dreams it is always during a renovation of my belief systems or some challenging time, be it small or large. Your methods of analysing dreams have been a wonderful help. My 9 year old daughter awoke from a … (continued at Facebook)” Christine

From the podcast blog

“I did so relate to podcast 53 of being stuck [in my stuff] and how I create and look at/for obstacles instead of looking at the vision.” Lynette

Look for clichés

When you interpret a dream, think like a painter.

When you interpret a dream, think like a painter.

Sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste. How many of these do you sense in your dreams? The more practised you become at recalling your dreams, the more you’ll notice a whole range of senses, but one thing that most people agree on is sight. Dreams are highly visual. You don’t fall asleep to listen to a story. You don’t go into the dream state to smell your way through the night. You settle down to a visual feast.

Has the cat got your tongue?

Has the cat got your tongue?

When you interpret a dream, think like a painter. Ask how a painter might communicate without sound, touch, smell, and taste.

One method dreams employ is to express issues and feelings in your life as visual clichés.

For example, if you’ve had a couple of days where you’ve been ‘chasing your tail’, going round in circles, getting nowhere, your dream might present an animal chasing its tail.

Or if you’re experiencing a difficulty communicating with someone, your dream might show a cat with a human tongue hanging from its jaws if you’re familiar with the cliché, ‘The cat’s got my tongue’.

You’ll pinch yourself at what a clever-clogs you are when you identify a cliche in a dream.

You’ll pinch yourself at what a clever-clogs you are when you identify a cliche in a dream.

Or perhaps your dream has you in a car being ‘driven round the bend by someone’, or maybe your dream shows you revengefully setting an angry dog onto someone and then that dog ‘comes back to bite you’ indicating karma, that you get back what you put out.

Some of the weirdest dream symbols are visual clichés. Keep your eyes open for them. They give you a great belly laugh, and you’ll pinch yourself at what a clever-clogs you are to come up with these instant messengers in your dreams.

Dream interpretation results: Jeremy’s news, episode 50

"Doing the dream alchemy has given me a feeling of being in the driver seat of my life.  If that's not a beautiful feeling I don't know what it is!" Jeremy

“Doing the dream alchemy has given me a feeling of being in the driver seat of my life. If that’s not a beautiful feeling I don’t know what it is!” Jeremy

Here’s an update from Jeremy, my guest in podcast episode 50, The Dream Show.

You may remember Jeremy dreamed of being a passenger in a cadillac, feeling unsure about where he was being driven, and there was a question of whether he should take the two painful beauty injections on offer, a long shot and a short shot.

Jeremy writes, 7 weeks later:

“I hate to sound corny – but our 45 minute talk set into motion a lot of positive events in my life!

"My friends were saying things to me like 'You look great, are you working out or something?' and 'You seem different - in a good way - what's up with you?'" Jeremy

“My friends were saying things to me like ‘You look great, are you working out or something?’ and ‘You seem different – in a good way – what’s up with you?’” Jeremy

I didn’t notice any changes myself right away, but a few weeks after our dream interpretation my friends were saying things to me like “You look great, are you working out or something?” and “You seem different – in a good way – what’s up with you?” and I kept thinking “HUH That’s weird” until I started putting together what has been happening to me in the past 2 months.

The major highlight for me has been the surprisingly powerful results of the dream alchemy practice you gave me. Honestly I thought it was going to be too difficult to keep up with, but after a week or so it got easier and I can slip into that visualization so easily now. Doing the dream alchemy has given me a feeling of consciously (and unconsciously too I assume) being in the driver seat of my life. If that’s not a beautiful feeling I don’t know what it is! And in working with my dreams more, I’ve discovered that the needle – the long and short shot – was going to be so painful because I was trying to take two paths at the same time in my waking life! I was working towards the long shot (entrance exams + PhD applications + 6 years of study) AND the short shot (starting an internship + beginning research) at the same time. No wonder it was going to hurt – it was overwhelming!

Then, in future dreams the “beauty shot” changed, let me share a dream from 2 weeks ago:

The beauty shot was transformed from a painful needle to a warming ginger honey drink.

The beauty shot was transformed from a painful needle to a warming ginger honey drink.

I was on a treacherous snowy mountain trail, and everyone else in my party was in summer clothes and loving it, but I was freezing yet wearing a parka and winter gear. I struggled down a slippery trail and found an inviting cabin, and inside was a nurse who looked like my friend’s mother who’s very warm, creative, and beautiful. And she said it’s time for my shot, but it’s the latest version which doesn’t require an injection anymore and it’s a drink now.  The drink tasted like ginger and honey I remember, and it was very warming. And then I went outside the cabin and played in the snow with everyone else and it felt wonderful and not at all cold. And as we played the snow all melted quickly and in just a few hours (but not before a playful snowball or two was thrown!) it became a forest in springtime. I woke up with a feeling of pure joy.

My dream analyst skills are meager – but I think that means progress! The pain of getting the “beauty shot” for me was the process of getting there I think.

When it actually happens, maybe it doesn’t hurt so much after all.

Thank you so much Jane Teresa!”

Episode 57 The Dream Show: Anatomy lesson

Thank you for your help

A new podcast every Friday. Listen here or subscribe on iTunes.

Episode 57 of our free weekly podcast, THE DREAM SHOW, is now up.

My guest today is Kate who dreamed she chopped off her leg so she could look inside the calf muscle.

She sort of managed to put it back together but, well, you know, the leg bone’s connected to the ankle bone and that ankle bone, she realised, would need microsurgery to get it working again.

Along the way she got angry with her healer and glimpsed a scorpion, momentarily, like a flashcard across her dream.

Meanwhile, in waking life, Kate has been on medication for a six week migraine, but it’s not working for her.

Can we fit these puzzle pieces together? You bet we can! Listen to how everything relates: the dream, the migraine, Kate’s waking life.

And, of course, we uncover an unconscious core belief that needs to be transformed, and we create a dream alchemy visualisation to do this. Enjoy witnessing the process of interpretation and alchemy, and the intricate ways in which mind and body communicate with us in waking life and in dreams.

Blueprint of the future

Once you see the pattern of your life – the blueprint of your future – you can change it, if you wish.

Once you see the pattern of your life – the blueprint of your future – you can change it, if you wish.

Tell your dream to a friend. Okay, so not everyone is interested in dreams, but many are, and if you find someone to swap dreams with, this exercise will work really well for both of you.

Tell your dream to a friend, and then ask him to summarise your dream in no more than a couple of sentences. Listen carefully to those two sentences. Perhaps even write them down.

For example, the summary might be something like, “You are lost and can’t find your way. You keep going round in circles”, or “You want to fly higher but people keep saying you can’t.”

Then ask your friend how he sees that summary applying to your life. Then ask yourself how that summary applies to your life. Between the two of you, you’ll strike gold. A friend, just one step removed from your situation, can often see more clearly than you.

Once you see the pattern of your life – the blueprint of your future – you can change it, if you wish, using dream alchemy.

Become the pattern maker, not the pattern.

Hole in the road

His father's voice would always sing out from the back of his mind, 'There was I, a-digging this 'ole'.

His father’s voice would always sing out from the back of his mind, ‘There was I, a-digging this ‘ole’.

Out driving recently, we slowed down to pass road works. Orange witches’ hats marked off a hole in the centre of the road. Intrepid road workers were jack-hammering their way, waist deep in rubble, ear deep in mind numbing noise.

“You know,” Michael began, “whenever we passed road works when we were children, Dad would always sing, ‘There was I, a-digging this ‘ole, ‘ole in the ground sort of big and sort of round …’. And I would vow never to be as predictable and repetitive when I grew up.”

“And you’ve succeeded,” I replied, “I’ve never heard you burst into song and we’ve passed plenty of road works in our life together.”

“Yes and no,” Michael cringed. “I may not sing  but I’ve never passed a road works without hearing my father’s voice striking up from the back of my mind, ‘There was I, a-digging this ‘ole’. He just won’t go away!”

We can drive on past the hole in the road without bursting into song ... but what about the holes we can't see?

We can drive on past the hole in the road without bursting into song … but what about the holes we can’t see?

We can laugh about these perpetual voices that echo on from our past. Parents, teachers, priests and school bullies, for example, often leave their mark. All the while we are aware of them we can shrug our shoulders and smile. We can drive on past the hole in the road without bursting into song, talk to our children without old-fashioned admonishment, and be assertive without fear of the school bully hurting us.

But what about the echoes we are not aware of? Deep in your unconscious mind are the records of every conversation, event and experience you have lived through carefully filed alongside the feelings these evoked in you. These experiences and feelings have shaped your life, even though you do not remember them. They form a blueprint, a pattern that exerts an influence on how you respond to the world. They may be unconscious patterns, but that fact alone makes them far more powerful than the patterns you are consciously aware of. The hole in the road you know about is not a problem. You won’t fall into it. But the very real hole in the road you are NOT conscious of is a danger.

How does this relate to dreams?

Dreams are reflections of both your unconscious and conscious minds, with special highlights on the conflicts between the two. When you know how to cut through the language of your dreams and interpret them, you can understand the blueprint patterns that are still operating in your life. Your dreams bring to light what is usually hidden to your waking eyes. Your dreams reveal the holes in the road, how they got there, and how they are affecting your waking life today. What powerful information!

"Money doesn't grow on trees", she said, speaking without thinking her own mother's echoing words which were also her grandmother's.

“Money doesn’t grow on trees”, she said, speaking without thinking her own mother’s echoing words which were also her grandmother’s.

For example, you may have forgotten the day when the other kids in your street were given money to buy ice creams from the ice cream van, but your mother didn’t have the change. She told you, “Money doesn’t grow on trees”, speaking without thinking her own mother’s echoing words which were also her grandmother’s. She didn’t realise you were the only kid in the street to miss out, and she certainly didn’t know the others taunted you about it for weeks.

As a five year old you felt deeply hurt, by the other kids and by your mother. You mistakenly learned that money was available to other people but not to you. When a deep feeling is associated with a belief (remember that children’s feelings are big) the belief is all the more strongly anchored. The child, in this example, grew up and forgot the incident, but his unconscious mind remembered and dug a huge hole in the road. As an adult, he wondered why he encountered difficulties with self-esteem and self-value. He didn’t know that his unconscious mind had established a belief pattern that he was less worthy of reward than others.

The problem is that the unconscious mind is far more powerful than the conscious mind, so its blueprint wins over conscious mind ideals, thoughts and goals.

Those plans you have that seem to keep misfiring are most likely overpowered by your unconscious beliefs in holes in the road and other perceived pitfalls and dangers. Your unconscious mind will sabotage realisation of your plans to ‘save’ you from such fates.

The solution? Change the blueprint.

This is easily done once you can interpret your dreams. There are various techniques (dream alchemy practices) that use the symbols of your unique dreams to change your unconscious blueprint.

Let your dreams enable you to build a smooth road forward, splendidly lit by diamonds gathered from the deepest pitfalls that once lined your route.

Let your dreams enable you to build a smooth road forward, splendidly lit by diamonds gathered from the deepest pitfalls that once lined your route.

Think of the process as mending the holes in the road so that you can make smoother and faster progress. You can’t remove a hole. The way to mend it is to fill it in. You can’t simply remove an unconscious belief; you need to fill the hole it occupied with a new, more appropriate belief. Dream alchemy practices are designed to do this.

But first, dream alchemy encourages you to look deep into the hole your dreams have revealed, for the best gems and treasures are discovered by mining deep into the earth, deep into the self.

Let your dreams enable you to build a smooth road forward, splendidly lit by diamonds gathered from the deepest pitfalls that once lined your route.

Dream vibrations and the LOA

I am often asked about the Law of Attraction, and whether nightmares and dreams with negative vibes attract negative people and events into our lives. It’s a good question. So, let’s explore:

Books about the Law of Attraction have enjoyed waves of popularity since the early 1900s

Books about the Law of Attraction have enjoyed waves of popularity since the early 1900s

Books about the Law of Attraction have enjoyed waves of popularity since the early 1900s, with a recent resurgence in the early 1990s and a deluge of interest since 2000. Rhonda Byrne’s ‘The Secret’ DVD and book, published in 2006, repackaged the Law of Attraction in a way that inspired millions of people to start making the LOA – as it is now commonly known – help them achieve their goals. So, what is the LOA, exactly?

According to the LOA, you receive according to the vibe you give out. Like vibes attract like vibes. If your focus on money is all positive you attract plenty of it into your life, whereas if your focus on money is negative (for example, if you focus on debt or lack of money), then you attract debt or lack into your life. According to the law, whatever you focus on, you get more of the same.

The LOA is working all the time, whether you believe in it or not. I know this to be true. The secret everyone is searching for is how to become an active participant in the process – how to create and maintain the vibe that brings you what you want.

Imagine you know that secret, and you put all your waking hours into maintaining the vibe that will bring you what you want, and then you go to sleep and have a dream ...

Imagine you know that secret, and you put all your waking hours into maintaining the vibe that will bring you what you want, and then you go to sleep and have a dream …

Imagine you know that secret, and you put all your waking hours into maintaining the vibe that will bring you what you want, and then you go to sleep and have a dream brimming with negative emotions, perhaps grief, anger or loss of confidence. Does the negative vibe of your dream beam out into the universe and undo all that daytime work?

Here’s where the magic of working with your dreams comes in. If you really want the LOA to work for you, then pay attention to your dreams. First up, there are a few basics you need to know:

1. Remember that dreams are symbolic, not literal. So if you dream that someone you know dies, your dream is NOT predicting that person’s death. The dream is symbolic and it is about something that is ending (dying off) in your life. Dreams of death are very common, and many people are frightened to mention them because they fear that putting the dream into words, or paying it attention, will cause it to happen. Please be assured that this is not the way it works. In fact, not talking about a worrying dream increases your waking life anxiety – and this affects your vibe. It’s better to talk about a worrying dream, interpret it, understand more about yourself as a result, and move on, free of any negative vibe. In this example, once you understand what is coming to an end in your life, you can decide to bring it back to life or to let it go and move on to something better. Interpretation brings you self understanding and choice.

2. The emotions you feel in your dreams are emotions that belong to you. Sometimes they’re emotions you’re aware of; most often they’re unconscious emotions that you’ve buried long ago, or emotions you’ve repressed because you can’t acknowledge them in your waking life.

3. In the same way, the beliefs, limitations and blocks you encounter in your dreams are your own unconscious beliefs, limitations and blocks.

4. So, when you interpret a dream, you discover your unconscious emotions, beliefs, limitations and blocks.

Whether you’re awake or asleep, your unconscious mind continuously sends out its vibe.

Whether you’re awake or asleep, your unconscious mind continuously sends out its vibe.

Now here’s the most important thing to understand. Whether you’re awake or asleep, your unconscious mind continuously sends out its vibe. And your unconscious mind is far more powerful than your conscious mind.

For example, you might choose to focus on sending out a positive vibe about money all day. You spend all day doing this, feeling totally positive and good about it. As far as you are aware, you have absolutely no block to having vast amounts of money in your life. However, your unconscious mind may have a different agenda. You may have unconscious doubts, limiting beliefs and blocks about having so much money. Because your unconscious mind is stronger than your conscious mind, it wins in the battle of the vibes. You don’t see the results you wanted and you declare the LOA to be a crock. But it isn’t! The LOA is working for you perfectly. Your overall vibe, dictated by your unconscious mind, is attracting according to the law. You are receiving according to the vibe you are giving out.

The real secret to getting the Law of Attraction to bring you what you consciously want is to get your unconscious mind on side.

If you want the LOA to work for you, pay attention to your dreams.

If you want the LOA to work for you, pay attention to your dreams.

So rather than ask if a worrying dream is sending out a negative vibe, attracting negative things to you, celebrate the fact that being able to remember your dream is the first step to identifying a negative vibe that your unconscious mind is sending out while you are awake, a negative vibe of which you are oblivious, a negative vibe that is attracting negative stuff to you.

You dream every night, and a dream has a vibe whether or not your remember it. Learning to remember your dreams and interpret them is an empowering step to take if you’re serious about attracting what you want into your life.

Dream interpretation identifies your unconscious beliefs, so you can easily pick the ones that are working against your conscious wishes. The next question is, how do you change those unconscious beliefs to align them to your conscious wishes?

This is done through the process of dream alchemy. These are simple exercises such as visualisations and affirmations that reprogram your unconscious beliefs. Here’s an example:

You dream you are driving a car but you can’t see ahead clearly because the windscreen is dark. This is a common dream indicating that you are unclear about your vision for your future. This lack of clarity is the work of an unconscious block sabotaging your vision. To apply dream alchemy when you wake up, visualise yourself back in the dream only this time the windscreen is exceptionally clear and you can see your way. Visualise yourself driving well, and add in all the positive emotions you associate with achieving your goal. Doing the dream alchemy practice – the visualisation – undoes the block and reprograms the associated unconscious belief in alignment with your conscious intention. (Do a dream alchemy visualisation 20 times a day for a week, ten times a day for the second week and twice a day for the next month.)

So tune into your dreams to tune those unconscious negative vibes that you are beaming out 24/7 into positive vibes that ensure that the Law of Attraction fulfils your conscious desires.

The mirror and the compass

Think of a dream as being a snapshot of you, today.

Think of a dream as being a snapshot of you, today.

Are you looking for guidance from your dreams? Clear direction? A message to follow? People often think of dreams as being messages from a higher source, delivering an action plan for success.

It’s true that you can find guidance and life direction by interpreting a dream. You can even come up with a brilliant action plan for success, follow it, and achieve that success. But … you knew there was a ‘but’ coming, didn’t you? Here it is.

It is more accurate to say that your dreams tell you everything you need to know about who you are TODAY, how you see the world today, and why this is so.

Your dreams often look back and remind you of your past experiences and relate them to what is happening for you today, because your past has shaped who you are today and how you see the world today. Your past – and today – also shapes who you will be tomorrow, and how you will see the world tomorrow, IF YOU LET IT!

Think of a dream as being a snapshot of you, today. Of course, you need to be able to interpret your dream first to understand that snapshot, to see the big picture of you and your life as it is today. When you know how to do this, you really begin to understand yourself deeply and clearly, and this puts you in a position of great power.

Your dreams, once interpreted, give you a deeper view of yourself than you can get from any other method of self-understanding. Dreams show you your unconscious beliefs, feelings, attitudes, and ways of seeing the world. These will surprise you, at first, and then you will clearly see how these relate to your life. They explain why your life is the way it is today.

Look into the mirror of your dreams so you can set your compass to move towards the future you choose.

Look into the mirror of your dreams so you can set your compass to move towards the future you choose.

When you understand yourself as you are today, you have the power to change, to create a new you and a new way of seeing the world for tomorrow. Instead of repeating the same old cycles, going round in circles through the same old experiences, you can break free and move forward to the life you really want.

That’s the power and the magic of dream interpretation.

So don’t look for direct guidance from your dreams. Instead, look into the mirror of your dreams to understand your position TODAY so clearly that you can make changes and set your compass to move towards the future you choose.
