PULLING WEEDS: A DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISE
When we care for our dreams in a similar manner to cultivating a garden, we invite understanding to grow. Dreams are a fertile plot of ground where tremendous growth and expansion takes place from small beginnings. Like gardening, DreamWork takes time and patience. Often we have to dig in the dirt. Persistence in confronting the weeds in the garden is similar to keeping the demons from growing in our psyches. The dream gardener must be vigilant.
Find a quiet space inside yourself for a few moments for writing in your journal.
• What kind of care is needed for your positive dream images to grow and thrive?
• Which dream images appear as destructive predators, pests or weeds? What kind of boundaries must be created to control them?
