If only you could bottle that … or … Anything goes in dreams

Once while I was working at a job where it seemed I could never quite measure up, I had a dream that I was flying. The next morning I had to make a presentation to a group of executives who made me feel intimidated and inadequate. But as I walked down the long corridor to the conference room, I thought to myself: “I was flying through the air last night, soaring between the stars.” I suddenly felt quite powerful and accomplished. Remembering the dream brought that feeling of confidence into every fiber of my being. I pushed the heavy wooden door open with an air of authority and took my seat. For the rest of the day I felt fully at ease.

Anything goes in dreams: You can walk through walls, sit at a café and sip a steaming cup of tea with a deceased friend, walk across continents in a matter of minutes, grow tall enough to brush the top of your head on the bottom of the moon.

And while you can’t necessarily bring a pocketful of stardust with you back into waking reality, you can bring the feelings of wonder, awe, bliss and happiness into your day.

Next time you have a creative, fun, blissful or inventive dream … bottle up a little bit of that expansive emotion and store it in your heart where you can pull it out anytime you need a little whiff of what is possible!

  1. Don

    What a great use of dreams!

  2. Great article! I agree, dreams can help us to realize the limitations we create in our waking reality are our own thought-projections, and we can “fly” beyond them by thinking differently …

  3. yes i always say well…..i can dream about it can’t i ?! 🙂

  4. great advice, and yes! dreams are very much part of the wondering Alice world….. :)))

  5. ooooooh, that’d be so handy with certain students of mine.
    can I possibly “borrow” your dream? 😉 ta.

  6. Great advice. I learned that our unconscious, that speaks to us in dreams, often has solutions to our quandaries in our waking life.

  7. I love this post! And it’s another incidence of co-incidence, lately I’ve had several dreams in the category you describe, a flying one about a week ago and two nights ago (or was it last night?) I dreamed I was in a room where the roof was open to the sky, I could see the moon from my bed and the sky was moving in magical patterns and then, our big goldfish (one we have in real life) was floating in the ‘sky’, and then I realized it wasn’t the case, rather, I was at the bottom the fish tank, and then I realized I’d better swim and I bouyed up to the top and then like Alice, the water in the ‘tank’ drained away and it was only up to my knees as the ‘floor’ of the room came up to me. It was one of my wildest and surrealest dreams ever, and lots of fun!!! So I’ll take your advice and bottle it in honor of this Anything goes week:))

  8. Lovely post! I always have this feeling that the dream world is the real one, and the one I awake in every morning, is fake. My dreams take me everywhere, and are a constant source of creativity.

  9. PS I just noticed this :

    I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?
