The Power of Dream Theater
In our last Dream Journeying Group, we ventured into the realm of dream theater. One of our dreamers allowed us to step into her dream with her, casting and directing us as the different aspects in her dream. First we embodied and played out these aspects, sharing our experience of being them. Then, as we came to the end of her dream, we all felt an unresolved feeling with possibilities on the horizon. Our dreamer was courageous enough to allow us to further improvise our roles to take the dream into the next scene. In the spirit of improvisational theater, the woods felt a stir of creative movement, the horse spoke of her loyalty and willingness to take the dreamer wherever she wanted to go, and the small, cramped house turned into a castle. The castle was big and scary, full of the unknown, and I stood on the sofa, holding sticks over my head to play the castle, speaking of the power of going into the castle, into the unknown. As I spoke, a crystal that was hanging above the sofa caught the rays coming in through the skylight, and shone a sparkling crescent light onto my forehead. One of our dreamers said, look it’s the Moon Goddess! Continuing our improv, I said Yes, the Moon Goddess has a message for you ~ Go into the castle, sleep there, and dream of the healing and magic of your future! The dreamer felt a sense of hope and possibility, where there had been fear and doubt. When we allow the creative energy into our circle, together we deepen into the messages and healing of our dreams! When we joined our fellow dreamer to support her journey, we all received the healing and learning from the experience!
