Call Dreams of Wisdom

Consider your dreams as a source of wisdom and guidance. Realize that you can call on your Inner Dream Guide to help with specific questions you may have about your activities in your waking hours.

Here are some steps to follow before going to sleep to inspire your Inner Dream Guide to provide you with the information you need:

If you are perplexed about something, write down the problems you’d like to solve in your dreams or what you’d like to dream about. Add notes about the day’s activities and your actions, state of mind, and feelings. They can serve as prompts for dreams.

Ask your Inner Dream Guide one or more questions that begin with “how” or “what,” such as:

1. How can I handle____?
2. What should I do about ____?
3. How can I be more _____?
4. What is stopping me from _____?
5. How can I resolve _____?
6. What have I learned about ____?
7. How can I best use what I have learned?
