Three Ways to help our dreams help us:
1. Wake up slowly. Take our time waking up. Have a notebook close at hand and write down anything that comes to mind. Gently stretch and languish in a quasi-sleep state a while… You can always revisit this journal entry when you are more awake.
2. Ask a question at night right before you go to bed. Write it in your journal. Then turn off the light and see if an answer surfaces in your dreams.
3. Consult a dream interpreter. Our dreams are often our brains way to process and makes sense of what is going on in our lives. You don’t have to take what actually happens in your dream literally, but patterns may emerge that will give you clues and insight. There are many good books and websites available to help you intepret your dreams.
