"The way I see it, there are two kinds of dreams. One is a dream that's always going to be just that...a dream…a vision that you can never really hold in your hand. Then there's a dream that's more than a dream,it’s like a map—a map that you live by and follow for the rest of your days knowing that someday your going to stand on top of that mountain holding everything you thought of right there in your hand!" ~Robert Cooper
“Dreamwork gives me the ability to walk along my life path fearlessly, with confidence, and with gusto. Without it I might find myself worrying and wondering about what’s around each corner I turn.”
This was what a dream-loving Episcopalian minister shared with me, and I couldn’t help but agree. One of the primary benefits of dream work/play is the ability to sense that life is on your side. To access this simply become attuned to dreamtime synchronicities popping out from behind the curtain of daytime reality. When this happens, it’s as if all worrying and wondering recedes, and a sense of confidence in the navigational guidance of the universe takes over.
For example, I dreamed about a mosaic piece of artwork, and, upon awakening simply wrote the word, “MOSAIC” in my journal in big bold letters. Later that morning I’m having a session with a client who is grieving the death of her 27 year-old son. During the session she tells me the following:
“My dear friend just dropped off the most amazing mosaic,” she says wistfully, “a smiling photograph of my son, comprised of hundreds of tiny pictures of him.”
A jolt of electricity coursed through me. I felt a nudge from her son across theveil! The recognition of this simple element from my dream was an entry point that opened the floodgates of communication with my client. I shared the mosaic synchronicity with her, which gave her an unexpected feeling of peace and reassurance. She in turn shared this with the rest of her family who similarly felt it was him reaching across from the other side, which lifted them—for a precious moment—out of their heartbreak, giving them the reassurance that he had survived death.
As if that wasn’t enough…sometimes it seems that synchronicities don’t know when to stop. Later that same day, my mother called to tell me about a new condo that she and my father looked at in the pursuit of their dream to move to downtown LA. She described it to me in detail and concluded by telling me it's called “Mozaic by Union Station.”
“Mom…I think it’s a sign…I have a good feeling about this place for you and dad,” I said imagining my client’s son winking at me from the other side.
