7 my other trump dreams. Scar.
Waking up grumpy lately. Nothings exactly wrong,here in my tidy little life, but there is so much out of tune, out of joint: there is no more sense of some sort of safe apartness that insulates. It's hot, October 4 and the coolest is .... but I can't complain because my country contributed more than anyone else, adn my country covered up the evidence that we needed to act s30 years ago, and my country is too busy following the insane dsXXX of its XXX to do anything outside of itself to pass any real legistlation that helps. We're turnign around EPA and stalling on gun contro and seriuosly doing adn not-doing anything we can to avoid and destoy human progress.
In this it's easy to pick the prime targets and let loose a rant.
But what we know is that all we can do about whoever seems most blaemworthy is to take a deep breath and start with the shadow work.
Tips and Titles for Dreamwork and Dreamplay
Tip: Sleep-train yourself. 8 hours. No kidding.
Title: Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker.
To start or deepen your dreamwork, begin at the beginning: sleep. Just stop and go to sleep! Make it a priority to get 7-8 hours a night, and do that by going to bed and getting up on a regular schedule. I know - this seems so boring! Especially for you dream junkies who want tips for flying, problem solving, and steamy lucid-dream romances. But listen: not only will you dream better, you’ll live longer (like 8 years). If I can do it so can you: I’m up to 7.5 hours of “sleep opportunity” every night – in bed, lights out at 10:30. Working towards 10:00. It’s a stretch, but the results are every bit what he promises (read the book).
And one tip for dream tending:
Tip: Make a dream twig: Pick up a twig from the ground. Meditating on your dream image, wrap the twig in string or yarn in a color that seems appropriate to you. Place it in easy view to keep your dream image in mind. Whether or not you understand a powerful dream image, you need to translate its energy into concrete expression through some small ritual. Any little act that connects your feeling about the dream into a physical gesture is enough.
Title: Inner Work This book by Robert Johnson - sage, analyst, and friend of your heart - is one of the best Jungian oriented introductions to dreamwork ever. Lots of stories to illustrate his accessible and exciting presentation of Jungian dream theory. Written to stay with you and change your life. If you’ve already read it, read it again: I promise there’s always more with Robert Johnson.
If you have any dreams that offer wisdom for collective healing and wholeness, I’d be grateful to hear them. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org. I never share dreams without permission.
