Benefits – what can working with your dreams do for you?
I think about this a lot. Dream work, that is actively writing down and working with the images in your night-time dreams, seems so esoteric, so fuzzy, so not concrete. In our waking life, we would rather have concrete. Here’s the thing….neuroscience shows that up to 80% of our decisions, large and small, every day are made below the level of consciousness. We’ve made up our mind before we know we’ve made up our mind. Working with our dreams is a way – a very cool way – to become more conscious of these underground processes. If we know more about these underground processes, we have a fighting chance of making new and different choices. We have the chance to participate in the decision making!
