Mining Your Dreams for Answers
Today, I have an article on the contributors section of Token Rock about how to program your dreams to get answers. I've always had extremely vivid dreams since I was a child, many of which predicted the future. But, what I've learned through the years that mining my dreams for answers to the current challenges and situations I need to deal with is much more useful than knowing the future. Especially since all decisions we make now - affect the future outcome.
I want to share a dream I had this morning that illustrates this point perfectly.
I dreamed that I was in my car following behind one of my friends. She was leading me out of a large, but empty, parking lot through a special cut-through to the highway I wasn't aware existed. Apparently, this short-cut went right to her house. As I went to make the turn into this cut-through my car did not one, but two complete donuts! It spun around twice as if it had a mind of it's own. The steering was just turning and turning without my doing it.
When I looked up I saw that my friend was way ahead and on the highway already. I realized I had to go fast to catch up to her. I took hold of the steering wheel to turn the car around and race after her when another car pulled in front of me and blocked me from driving through the cut-through. I waited, but the car didn't budge. I honked my horn, but the car still didn't budge. At that point I looked up and my friend was gone. I realized I wouldn't be able to follow her after all.
I've been grappling with whether I need to get a 'real' job again. Things have been rather difficult lately so every now and then I think I should give up all this writing 'nonsense' and go back to 9 to 5. My friend who's car I was following in the dream recently went back to work after being laid off for a long time. I believe what my dream was saying to me was, 'NO.' Do not follow your friend. Keep on doing what you're doing and follow your passion.
You know the answer in a dream is the right one if it feels right, and this feels right.
So, read my article in the contributors section to learn how to program your dreams for answers to the problems you're grappling with.
