THE KEY TO THE CASTLE OF DREAMS: A DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISE

A castle is an impregnable fortress that has been built for self defense. It is a structure of security with thick walls surrounding an inaccessible inner refuge. Like a dream, it is difficult to approach. In fairy tales, myths and dreams, a castle may represent the heart’s desire or the innermost fortress of the soul.  Like a spiritual quest, a castle may represent a fearful challenge or a shining goal.

EXPLORATION

Recast your dream images within the atmosphere of a fairy tale castle. Take ten minutes to rearrange your dream images so that they fit the archetypal structures of an inner refuge. Write about the dream as if you are penetrating the walls of an enigmatic stone fortress.
