I work with clients who bring dream memories to the session. It is a powerful way to access the unconscious and for me no dream or part of a dream is a bad one. Dreams come to us in the service of health and wholeness. Nightmares remind us that there is something urgent we need to attend to. Recurring dreams invite us to pay attention to some issue that needs attention and has been around a long time.
Dreams are also a powerful means of making contact with our soul. As one writer reminds us the soul speaks through our dreams conveying messages and advice to us as we sleep, appealing to our deeper need for guidance and transcendence. (The Five Stages of the Soul, Moody and Carroll)
Using dreams in our therapy can be a very exciting and challenging way to work.
