LITTLE ALTARS EVERYWHERE: A DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISE

A shrine is a place of worship where one can find communion, peace, forgiveness, assistance,  atonement, repentance, healing, and love. The altar is a container for cherished treasures, keepsakes, mementos and antiquities that have survived the passage of time. It holds objects that honor deities and the memory of loved ones.

The dream, like a shrine, is a container for relics. It holds a collection of memories, emotions, hopes and beliefs. So often, all that remains of our dreams are fragments, yet each image, like a token on an altar, is imbued with powerful vestiges of feelings and associations.

ALTARED STATES

Regardless of your affection or repulsion for the dream images, consider the power within each of the dream images.

Create a shrine to honor the sweet, the bitter, the painful, the mysterious and the sacred dream images.
