Have all your dreams turn out well.

 

It is possible to help yourself by working with your dreams without needing to know what they mean.  People often think of their dreams as something that happens to them rather than something that they do while sleeping.  Your dreams are a resource to you and you can use them to your benefit.

Think of dreams are movies you create in your head.

Since your brain created them, you are the producer of these movies.  Not only are you the producer, but the director and actors too.  Since it’s your movie, you can edit it and change it in any way you like.  You have all the rights to this movie.  You can change the storyline, furniture, vehicles, colours, sounds, space, dialogue, and action. Your brain created it, which means you can change it any way you want.  You can keep what you like and want and change what you don’t like and don’t want.

 

How to change your dreams.

  1. When awake re-enter your dream at any point.
  2. Letting go of logic, change negative outcomes to positive ones.
  3. Change negative feeling tones to positive feeling tones.
  4. Create at least 3 different scenarios.

The hardest part of this is letting go of logic because while awake you are in your left brain which uses logic.  With practice you will get better at letting go of logic and being more creative.  It can be fun.

The reason you create at least three different endings is to give your dreaming brain the idea that there is no right ending.  If you have only one ending, then you think that’s the only other possible ending.  If you have two, then you think it’s either this or that.  But if you have three or more, your brain realizes there are millions of possibilities.  This frees up your dreaming brain to come up with endings that are tailor made for you.

Example: June’s bad dream:

I’m a passenger in the back seat of a car.  I don’t know who is driving but the car is going too fast.  We skid around one corner nearly hitting a pedestrian.  The car swerves from side to side.  Then we almost hit a truck that is crossing the road at an intersection.  The car comes to a halt by ramming into a lamppost.  I wake up with a start.  I’m not hurt.

Outcome:  accident but not hurt.

Feeling tone:  scared, out of control.

 

Edited dream 1:

I’m a passenger in the back seat of a car.  I don’t know who is driving but I don’t like how he or she is driving.  Suddenly, I’m in the driver’s seat and driving the car.  Even though I do not know how to drive, I somehow able to do it.  I slow down the car and drive the speed I want to drive.  The scene changes and I’m now in the country.  It’s a beautiful day and I’m enjoying the ride.

Outcome:  no accident, pleasant trip

Feeling tone: safe, in control, happy

Edited dream 2:

I’m in the back seat of the car.  It’s a limo and there is a driver.  I tell him to drive more slowly.  He follows my directions.  We pull over to a store and I get out to go shopping and he waits by the car for me.

Outcome:  no accident, go where I want

Feeling tone:  safe, in control, in charge

Edited dream 3:

I’m in the back seat of the car.  I don’t know who is driving but the car is going too fast.  Suddenly I’m driving the car, finding it hard to control.  Then I realize it is actually a plane.  I pull on the wheel and the plane goes up and I’m flying.  I fly around the city looking down at everything.  Then I see a road and I bring the plane safely down.  Now the plane is a car again.  I continue to drive happily along the road.  It’s as if all this is normal and ordinary.

Outcome: no accident, new adventure, new skills

Feeling tone:  safe, in control, excitement, stimulated.

 

Once your brain gets the idea that dreams can be changed, you will start to do it while you are dreaming.  Your dreaming brain will come up with just the right positive ending for you.

When my children were young and I put them to bed at night I wanted to say something positive to them when I said good night.  So I would say to them –

 

Have all your dreams turn out well.
