Episode 156 The Dream Show: A spiritual vibe

Thank you for your help

 

A spiritual vibe

My guest, Liza, dreamed she was violated by a plumber at her grandmother’s house, and yet, as the dream progressed, the positive energy lifted. There was the welcoming of an Aboriginal ghost couple into her current home, and someone commented that there was a beautiful vine growing outside her house and a lovely spiritual vibe inside. Vibe, and vine – do we have some word play going on here?

“Look, I can levitate,” Liza told her Mum, “can you?” As you listen you’ll discover that Liza’s dream is about rising above challenges, integrating ghosts of the past, and finding a spiritual perspective on her life, but I won’t spoil the story.

The Dream Show with Jane Teresa AndersonLiza described her dream as provocative and controversial as it begins with the violation, the rape, which she began to like in the dream.

The dream is symbolic, not a repressed memory of physical rape, so what does it mean, and how does it relate to Liza’s life?

Episode 155 The Dream Show: Be inspired

Thank you for your help

 

Your-Dreams-on-Ponderabout.com

What do you think of this image? The guys at ponderabout.com came across one of my prose poems, and created this image to share on their inspirational site. It surprised me when they asked for my permission to publish one of my prose poems because I didn’t know that I had written any. I thought they must have got me mixed up with someone else, but when I looked at the image, I recognised my words, given fresh perspective. Plucked from the heart of my original article, laid out in prose poem format, given design treatment and embellished with a cartoon, the words took on more emphasis. I was inspired by their idea to treat more of my work in this way.

Actually, I’ve been blessed with a few creative inspirations this week, so I thought I’d make ‘Be Inspired’ the theme of this episode.

The Dream Show with Jane Teresa AndersonListen as we delve into some of the points listed on the image, and discover how to be inspired by looking at life from different perspectives, ranging from the perspective of your dreams to the imagined perspective of a steaming pile of cow poo. At the end of the podcast I give you a ‘Be inspired’ checklist, suggesting you pick just one (ok maybe more than one) to follow into action today. Enjoy.

Episode 154 The Dream Show: How to do dream alchemy

Thank you for your help
Episode 154 The Dream Show: How to do dream alchemy

I’ve prepared this mix of the light-hearted, the deeply fascinating, and the ‘how to’ practicalities for you this episode, all on the theme of dream alchemy.

Dream alchemy is a way of communicating with your unconscious mind to transform beliefs that are not serving you well. It works by speaking the same language as your unique unconscious mind, using one or more symbols from a uniquely personal dream. Another way of saying this is that dream alchemy rewires the brain to transform those automated, habitual patterns of perceiving and responding in the world that have been limiting you.

There are many forms of dream alchemy. In this episode we’re focussing on visualisations and affirmations. A clue: they’re nothing like the kind of visualisations and affirmations you may have done in the past. You’ll understand why dream alchemy visualisations and affirmations are different and how to create and use them. You’ll also discover why conventional visualisations and affirmations generally fail.

Along the way we look at how and why we often sabotage our intents and goals, and how to stop this. We also explore perfection and imperfection. Do you know a perfect day when you experience one?

The Dream Show with Jane Teresa AndersonIf you’re serious about making change in your life, listen to this episode, pop it into your favourites folder, and share it with … I’m sure you have someone in mind right now. Enjoy.

Episode 153 The Dream Show: Unbearable waiting

Tim, my guest, dreamed of setting off on a journey, feeling sad at leaving behind animals that she had rescued, including a long-tailed monkey. She journeyed to the French mountains where she met a waiter who was mixing two fluids to create the perfect cola. There’s a lot of waiting in this dream from this point, so much so that by the end of the dream Tim feels that to wait any longer would be unbearable. She must get to that waterfall now!

When Tim contacted me to volunteer to be a guest on the show, she asked if she could talk about a dream alchemy visualisation that she had created for herself. She said she’d been doing the visualisation for a couple of weeks, but it had morphed in ways she didn’t like. That was all I knew, but I thought it would make an interesting subject for The Dream Show.

The Dream Show with Jane Teresa AndersonSo you’ll hear us explore Tim’s dream, what it means, and how it relates to her life, and you’ll hear Tim describe the really good dream alchemy visualisation she created, and how it morphed. We get down to why it morphed (which offered deeper insight into Tim’s dream and life), and we designed an updated version for Tim to do.

This episode is packed with tips, demonstrations of techniques, laughter, sudden deep realisations, and plenty of take-home value for everyone.

Will Tim get to her metaphoric waterfall? Oh yes, yes, and yes. Insights abound, and new paths open. Share her journey:

Listen

PS 31 July: Tim emailed me to offer to share this update with you:

“The results have been overwhelming!! My creativity is flowing, it’s actually like a dam breakthrough (so much I want to do … so few hours in the day).”

Episode 152 The Dream Show: Dreaming about work

Thank you for your help
Dreaming about work

My guest, Domonique, has been dreaming about work for the last four months, and wonders why, especially since she’s been on sick leave for the last three months. In some dreams she finds herself at work and then thinks, “But I’m on sick leave, what am I doing here?”

In others dreams she’s in a car, on the way to work, but lost, thinking, “What am I doing here in the middle of nowhere?”

In one of these dreams she finds herself dressed in pink leopard skin tights, talking to her HR manager about an unacceptable sexual harassment issue. Domonique falls asleep in her dream, then wakes up – still dreaming – and that’s when things change!

Are Domonique’s dreams about work, or are they about a deeper issue?

The Dream Show with Jane Teresa AndersonListen in as Domonique and I delve into her work dreams to discover what she needs to know to move forward in her life.

There’s something in every episode for you too: dream analysis techniques, contemplations, fresh perspectives, getting to know a guest, and being inspired by her story. Enjoy, and please share this podcast.

Episode 151 The Dream Show: A cruel punishment

Thank you for your help
Episode 151 The Dream Show: A cruel punishment

Carmen, my guest this episode, dreamed of a white carthorse decorated in rainbow paint, dragging a cart without wheels, and carrying the heavy wheel axle in its mouth as a cruel punishment. But punishment for what?

Meanwhile there’s a jeep that needs to be fixed, but the chances are that the guy who owns it will just continue on as before, rattly seats and all.

Carmen is angry, something needs to happen!

Also featuring in this dream are two lizards – one quite magical – and, living at the bottom of her garden in a Womble shanty, an unsettlingly calm man who verbally abuses his very weak girlfriend.

Here’s a dream that sounds like a modern day fairytale, but does it have a happy ending? Like all good fairytales, dreams seem far removed from our everyday lives until we take a good deep look at the metaphors and find them ringing true deep within ourselves, often much to our surprise.

The beauty of working with dreams is that once we understand them we can apply dream alchemy: tweak and change the key points of the dream to create a fulfilling resolution (that filters through to the life situation which the dream reflects), a different kind of happily ever after than we might ever have dreamed possible for ourselves.

The Dream Show with Jane Teresa AndersonYou’ll witness all of this as you listen to Carmen and me working with her dream, interpreting it, relating it to her life, discovering helpful new insights, and creating potentially life changing dream alchemy. Enjoy and please share.

The Dream Show was launched 5 years ago this week: happy birthday The Dream Show!

Episode 150 The Dream Show: Radiant light being

Thank you for your help
Episode 150 The Dream Show: Radiant light being

My guest, Caroline, dreamed she was given a cheque made out to ‘Radiant Light Being’, or, on looking at it again, did it say ‘Radiant Glowing Jellyfish’? Either way, she felt she shouldn’t be paid because she had only been helping a secretary clean up a professor’s office. “Must be because I’m angelic,” she quipped to the secretary, and they both cracked up laughing.

Later in the dream the professor holds up a tiny yellow raincoat, “Do you want this?” he asks. Ever since her dream, a month ago, she’s been enjoying entertaining people with the question of the tiny yellow dream raincoat: what a strange thing for the professor to offer, and well – did she want it?

The Dream Show with Jane Teresa AndersonPlenty happened in the dream between the radiant light jellyfish moment and the tiny yellow raincoat moment, and you’ll hear us explore and make sense of it all.

Listen to discover how the dream relates to Caroline’s life, what insight she gains from the interpretation process, and what she decides to do as a result. Enjoy: you’ll be inspired.

Episode 149 The Dream Show: The hidden library

Thank you for your help
The hidden library

My guest today is Karen, with a dream about discovering a hidden library filled with eclectic books and antiquities downstairs in her house. As she wondered who created it and why it wasn’t being used, she became lucid to her dream and lamented that the library – like all the extra rooms she has discovered over the years in other dreams – wouldn’t be real when she woke up.

Karen’s lucid drThe Dream Show with Jane Teresa Andersoneam state faded as the dream rolled on to continue its job of processing her experiences of the last couple of days. Michelle Pfeiffer appears, in both a young and aged version, and an enticing forest track beckons just beyond Karen’s dining room window. Where does it take her, and how does all this help Karen to gain insight into what’s going on in her waking life? Listen to find out!

Thank you to Karen – and to all our past and future guests – for offering to come onto the show to contribute a dream for this huge free resource designed to help anyone who can access the internet to learn more about how to interpret and work with dreams. (You can volunteer as a guest here.)

Episode 148 The Dream Show: Intense emotions in dreams

We begin with the light-hearted, a bit of fun and a laugh to illustrate just how far the unconscious can go to try to save us from feeling pain, yet how that same unconscious can speak loud and clear in waking life once you know how to look and listen. It speaks even more clearly in dreams, once you know how to read them, and in this episode we plunge into the kind of dreams where you vent and scream and act in ways that terrify you, to discover how to understand them.

The Dream Show with Jane Teresa AndersonMany people who are quiet and considerate towards others in waking life dream of expressing such rage that it spills into violence. In dreams, you may find yourself so angry that you shake someone violently, squash them, or hurt them in ways that are not even physically possible in waking life. You may be thinking these dreams are simply arenas to release deep emotions, and you’re right in part. But there’s more, and it’s in the deeper understanding of these dreams that you stand to gain the greatest light. We go there in this episode. You’ll emerge smiling. Enjoy.

Episode 147 The Dream Show Pursued by love

Renee is my guest having her dream interpreted on The Dream Show.  What do you do when a rich foreigner opens his heart, shines his love, and literally offers you the world? In Renee’s dream, you run!

“She’s too stupid to see he’s trying to help her,” shout some people in a bowling alley as she runs through, pursued by the foreigner’s men and a newspaper arrow that seems to have a life of its own.

“Leave!” Renee yelled, as they chased her through a bar. She could feel the presence of her parents backing her.

Finally she arrived in a place that felt like an Italian town, beautiful and intricate, with a theatre at the centre. Did she keep running? Did the foreigner catch up with her? Did she find love? More importantly, what does Renee’s dream mean?

Listen as Renee discovers the meaning of her dream and how it relates to her life. Listen as she experiences new insights into her mindset that help her to understand her current situation. Listen as I offer practical suggestions for Renee based on her dream, and then as I take her through a dream alchemy visualisation so that her unconscious mind supports her conscious intention.

The Dream Show with Jane Teresa AndersonAs with every episode featuring a guest, you’ll add to your repertoire of dream interpretation and alchemy techniques as you listen to the way I work with Renee as we explore her dream.
