Learn from Your Dreams with Amy Pearson

Learn from Your Dreams with Amy Pearson
“The dream work is helping to clear energetic resistance.” - Amy Pearson

Do you remember your dreams? We’re talking about how to remember them and what to do with them.  Amy Pearson, a master coach and dream analyst, shows us how dreams can help clear resistance and help us move forward.

Sometimes we have to stop doing the obvious step to get ahead and try tapping into modalities that unlock more, like dream work. What happens to your goals when you really start to look at your dreams? What happens when you slow down and find ways to hear your intuition?

It can be helpful to get support in analyzing or understanding your dreams, but Amy talks about ways you can get at meaning from your dreams on your own, too.

We talk about: 

  • why dream work is so important
  • how to actually remember your dreams
  • how to make meaning of dreams on your own
  • incubating dreams to help answer questions
  • what things can affect our dreams and our ability to connect with them
  • using dreamwork to heal imbalances between masculine and feminine energy

    At the end of every episode, we share three doable changes, so you can take what you’ve heard and put it into action. Change comes from action. Sometimes the action we need to take isn’t obvious. Sometimes it’s a way to step more into our intuition.

    Doable changes are things that you can add into your life, one at a time to make micro shifts and really create a ripple effect that will create a big change over time. Choose one that really piques your interest and roll with it.

    Here are three Doable Changes from this conversation:

    • WAKE UP EARLY TO REMEMBER DREAMS. Try waking up 1.5–2 hours before you usually do to start to capture your dreams. This might look like setting an intention to remember your dream and rise earlier. It might be being more aware when you wake to use the bathroom. In any case, write down whatever you do remember, even if it isn’t much. Try voice recording on your phone or keeping a notebook by your bed or in the bathroom.
    • INCUBATE ANSWERS. Before bed, write a question you are seeking an answer to. Ask your dreams to help you answer it. This helps set the tone for what you want your dreams to bring up.
    • WORK WITH YOUR DREAMS. You don’t have to be a walking dream dictionary to find meaning in your dreams. Start by noticing how you feel when you wake from a dream. What do you notice? What is getting your attention? What associations do you have from your current or past life? Taking time to work through these questions and noticings can help you find meaning from your dream.
