Editor’s Note from Tzivia Gover: Co-Editor of Dream Medicine: You’ve recalled your dream and recorded it in your dream journal. Now what? In this article Dr. Gillian Holloway offers a practical step-by-step process for approaching dreams and uncovering the messages and gifts contained within.
I get a lot of clients who, after their dream session, ask if I do psychic readings too, because they assume the accuracy of the dreamwork came partly out of psychic abilities. For the record, I think that we’re all a tad psychic, and that these abilities are just another form of intelligence that has gotten a bad, and a very weird, rap.
The secret behind the accuracy of my dream sessions is this: I’ve been using the same method for over 20 years because it works so well. There are 5 elements in a dream that I scan and then translate as I work through a dream. These 5 points make it very difficult to go wrong, and very easy to get to the heart of the dream. It also reminds me to dig into the gift the dream offers; this is the value that makes the search worthwhile. Let’s take a look at how these 5 points can lead to understanding.
1. Your first impression.
2. Your action.
3. Your feelings.
4. Your symbols.
5. Your gift.
