Focusing and Dreams
The phenomena of dreaming
Evolution brings forth nothing unnecessary. Dreaming has a profound reason (for all mammals), and is not yet fully unraveled by scientists. In psychology we know dreams are not just psychic leftovers from our everyday life. Their symbolic meaning helps a person to understand a problem. But dreams are even more than that. Our body interacts in dreams, our psyche interacts in dreams, our soul interacts in dreams. Dreaming also includes other dimensions of being, that are not directly part of our physical life. We exist fuller than we really know. Dreams can give us a glimpse about that.
Your dreams offer you answer to questions you have forgotten
- about your past and your future
- about your behavior and your psyche
- about your physical health and social wellbeing
- about your spiritual life and your everyday issues
- about your fears and hopes, happiness and grief
- about your interests and talents
Your source of your dreams never judges nor blames nor punishes you. It always comes from a friendly attitude of support. It is the part of you that knows more. That's why Focusing is the ideal entrance to your dream life. It connects you to the fuller 'you' and leads to an understanding of your own dream language. Dreams tell you about edges, potentials and possibilities of your live, tell you about 'unfinished business', about emotional involvement, that need your attention.
We will explore dreams and dreaming in many exercises. Using Focusing we will touch topics like:
- how is the relationship between you and your dreams, how do you feel about your dreams
- how do you remember your dreams: don't get any visual impression , rarely, every morning
- as bits and pieces, long stories, fragments, bodily and emotional mood
Above all there will be space for your dreams you remember, your interest and your questions about them.
