    Hi Jeanie,

    I’m sorry I didn’t have the chance to weigh in on your dream, but have been busy with one thing and another…most notably a brand new granddaughter in the family. I like what you say about the dream having many levels and that, often, what is revealed depends on the level one chooses to focus on – personal, physical, spiritual, collective, emotional, and so on. I attended a dream intensive a few weeks ago with dream master Jeremy Taylor and discovered that there are actually many more levels to a shared dream than can be uncovered in just a few sessions of working with it. In my own dreamwork, I’ve found that it might even take years for a dream to reveal insights that can be applied to later stages of my life. That is why I’ve been keeping dream journals for the better part of my adult life. And I so agree that working with others projections on my dreams helps to bring out things that my ego is either unaware of or resistant to until I feel the zing of an “Aha!” that someone has helped bring to light.

    I wrote about some of the interesting synchronicities that we dreamers encountered during the JT dream intensive on my blog if you are interested in checking it out at http://nina4667-funwithdreams.blogspot.com

    I always enjoy your posts,

    Jenna

      Dear Jenna,

      Congratulations on your new granddaughter! I know what joy and new life a baby brings to a family and am happy for you and yours.

      Your comment about how long it can take to mine certain insights in dreams is so true. Thirteen years after my book, “Dream Theatres of the Soul,” came out I was re-reading portions of in in preparation for a workshop and was stopped in my tracks by a recent stunning synchronicity in my waking life that spoke directly to a dream I had discussed there. It feels as if Dream Mother “knows” and “sees” your soul’s purpose and life path so well that sometimes she cannot help but prefigure some inevitable outcomes. It’s extraordinary to be known and loved like this, isn’t it?

      Thanks for including the link to your blog. I’ll check it out asap!

      Best,

      Jeanie

    God is a mystery and we are a mystery, since we are made in His image. The journey we are all on is discovering and unfolding our relationship with Him and ourselves. What a wonderful adventure!!!

      Dear Shannon,

      …an adventure everyone can take. I think of it as inner archaeology, which, while it may not provide the adrenaline rush of the Indiana Jones version of outer archaeology, has rewards infinitely more lasting and beneficial!

    Hi Jeanie,

    After sending off the comment to your post yesterday, I thought a lot about how dreams in one period in my life have supported later periods and, often, in the way you describe in your response to me: realizing that a prior dream that occurred years ago has so much to do with what is happening today.

    Later that evening, I picked up a book I’ve been reading, written in the ’90s by Naomi Epel, a woman in my dream group here in Berkeley, titled “Writers Dreaming: Twenty Writers Talk About Their Dreams and the Creative Process.” It is a great book with essays by Maya Angelou, Isabel Allende, Clive Barker, Elmore Leonard, Anne Rivers Siddons, and others. Unfortunately, it is out of print today. Anyway, I’m reading and within a page I came to this passage that author Leonard Michael writes in his section of the book: “You [have this dream] at one point in your life, and [then you are] you, at a much later point in your life, when you’re really a considerably different person. There you are in an earlier incarnation dreaming of your future, your fate.”

    Nice confirmation of what we’ve been discussing here!

    Warmly,

    Jenna
