Dreams: The Language of the Soul
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” Carl Jung
“The Paradox: Only you can determine the meaning of your dream, and at the same time, you are the most blind to the meaning. The Ego inhibits us in many cases from making the deeper connection.” Allen Proctor, The Haden Institute
- No dream comes to tell us something that we already know. But as a helper to address our particular needs.
- Triggers emerge in our dreams; where we are invited to work through them.
- Dreams reflect the soul’s call to integrate all parts of ourselves and to find meaning through connection.
- Every character, object and element of the dream is actually an aspect of the dreamer. Everything is a projection of ourselves and our emotions onto others.
- When we see two examples of something, it may indicate that something new is emerging.
- The Soul is fragile and fearful. She feels violated when she is interpreted and yet invites others to participate in the discovery of who she is. She longs for companionship. She is calling us to be integrated into all aspects of ourselves.
“When the soul wants to experience something, she throws out an image in front of her and then steps into it.” Meister Eckhart.
“You must give birth to your images…
They are the future waiting to be born.
Fear not the strangeness you feel.
The future must enter you long before it happens.
Just wait for the birth.
For the hour of the new clarity.” (Rainer Maria Rilke)
