What I really like dream therapy is it is inside-out type of coaching and more self coaching orientated. People who just feel confused, coming to me and then they get their dream beautiful insights. They are much released and get to heal themselves automatically, effortlessly, or subconsciously without realizing or feeling much pain. Amazing!
"The dream and the dreamer have a reciprocal relationship. The better one understands the person, the better one can understand the dream."
An example is the famous story of the four blind men that come upon an elephant and share their experience.
" It's like a snake" says the one who feels the trunk. Oh no, not at all replies the second, touching the elephants leg, " It's large and solid, like a temple pillar. " You are both wrong says the third, grabbing the tail, " It's just like a snake" "Are you guys crazy asks the fourth, as he feels it's ear, "It's just like a rug" The truth is, all of them are right, based on their individual experience, but all of their experiences do not give a complete picture of what an elephant really looks like.
Dream Therapy is not a matter of divination, or pseudo intuition, it is a scientific research, needing hard and honest reflection and logical analysis. Only by sticking to this protocol can we be sure of accurate results. Most often, the personages in our dreams are actually facets of ourselves. While sometimes they represent people, attitudes and situations in the exterior world.
We all have a built-in guide on emotional and practical problem solving in the form of our dreaming mind.
