Here’s a simple formula to apply when you have an unsettling or frightening dream and you want to reduce the chances of having it again. Actually, it’s far more powerful than this. Not only does this formula ease your dreams, it also creates deep and lasting positive change in your waking life by subtly reprogramming your unconscious mind to solve the issue causing the bad dreams. Here’s what to do.
Love your bad dreams into good ones. Do this by rewriting your dream in your journal, or visualising it in your mind’s eye, changing the bad storyline into a good one, making sure that all your changes come from a place of love. Here are some examples.
Love your losses into founds, your deaths into births, your failures into successes, your limitations into freedoms, your lateness into smooth timeliness, your obstacles into open roads, your judgements into forgiveness, your muddy waters into crystal pools, your intruders into friends, your poverty into wealth, your wicked witches into good fairies, your broken down cars into golden chariots, your tsunamis into relaxing spas, your hurts into healings, your heavy luggage into uplifting wings, and your scary shadows into loving light.
The key is transformation. For example, don’t kill a wicked witch because this leaves a hole in your psyche. Everything and everyone in your dreams represents something about you and your beliefs and feelings about life, so anything you do to anyone or anything in a dream (or a dream rewrite) you are really doing to yourself. Transform a wicked witch into a good fairy by whatever way feels good to you when you rewrite your dream. Best of all is to use love as the transforming force. When a wicked witch receives love, she can’t help but be instantly transformed into a good fairy.
Finish your rewrite with a bit of wisdom and a happily ever after ending. Reread it, or replay it in your mind’s eye, over and over again, making sure you feel uplifting emotions and plenty of love throughout. Take that ‘happily ever after’ feeling forward into your day.
Today’s blog is from my book 101 Dream Interpretation Tips, and, talking of transformation, I know you’ll love this reworking of the image from last week’s blog, Alchemy and Dream Interpretation. Patricia Mottram, from Ayurveda TLC, reworked the image and sent it me saying, “I had to play with the picture of the old male alchemist who looks very worried that it’s all going to blow up in his face!”
As you can see, Patricia has transformed the worried male alchemist in The Alchemist in Search of the Philosophers’ Stone, by Joseph Wright of Derby (1734-1797), into a radiant woman. I have it on good authority that it is, indeed, Patrica herself. Nice bit of alchemy, hey?
