ME AND MY SHADOW: A DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISE

As civilized members of society, we present ourselves as nice, unselfish, polite, noncompetitive and obedient. But our dream selves are untamed, selfish, impulsive, competitive, and awkward. We often hide these secret parts of ourselves. Over time, our hidden layers of protection become more complex with time. Unfortunately, some of the best parts of our secret selves become concealed as well. The dream provides a mirror image of this shadowy realm with all of its treasures. We project the best and the worst of ourselves onto the images in our dreams.

YOUR MISSION SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT…

Write for ten minutes about the dark undercurrents in your dream. Express all of your pent up feelings. Dare to be wild, spontaneous and raw. Pry open your closely guarded secrets. Give voice to all that has been lying dormant.
