Stage 3 of Dream Activation

Activating your dream through ritual and/or creative expression. 


Stage 3

Activating your dream or dream image. Involves meditation, movement and choosing a vehicle for creative expression. You will be giving your dream or dream image a life of its own. It will be an invaluable resource to you. This process involves some time and commitment, but is worth it. Upon waking while lying in bed take a few moments to admire the dream. Philosopher, Gaston Bachelard offers a clue as to how to listen to the gestures or stories of the dream world, "One enters the world by admiring it." Admiring a dream is non-judgmental; it is simply admiring the simplicity, complexity, the color, beauty, sensuality, bodily feelings, and the emotional tone of the dream.
