Each dream is like a seed of potential, a new beginning where tremendous growth and expansion take place from small beginnings. As with the fruits and flowers, some dreams return year after year. Others must be planted in the dark time and allowed to germinate throughout the long dark winter. Some must be grown from fresh ideas in the spring. When we care for our dreams in a similar manner to cultivating a garden, we invite understanding to grow.

Which issues in the dream are perennial and return year after year? Which issues have been planted for the first time? What kind of care is needed for your dream garden to grow and thrive?
