I started back on my morning pages a couple of weeks ago. Since then I've been having a lost of strange dreams. In TAW book, it says that we may have a lot of issues and feelings surface but I don't recall anything about dreams. I am wondering if anyone else has had that experience. (Or maybe I better lay off the spicy food for dinner!) :)

I've had exactly the same experience and I'd bet it's the morning pages instead of the spicy food causing it! Pay attention to those dreams...

Oh yes, Lori.

It can be fun to write the dreams down in your Morning pages.

Good morning.

I almost never remember my dreams, and usually wake up feeling like I have not dreamed. When I do remember my dreams, they have almost always been horrific--yet not frightening, since I almost always seem to know--as I dream--that I am dreaming.

I have been dreaming more lately, or, at least, upon waking, I know that I've dreamed, and the dreams stay with me...

...oh, joy!

Last week I had vivid dreams on two consecutive nights: in the first one a very attractive man gave me a hug-- very pleasant :) However, the next night a different man, very hostile, screamed at me that I was an evil person. I awoke very shaken. I went from the very nice to the very scary in two nights.

This week, I've been looking forward to my dreams so I can start trying to understand the unconscious messages and, wouldn't you know it, I can't remember a single dream this week!

I guess I'm trying to hard.

Hi, About 90% of my dreams are pleasant to really good. I dream often of family, alive and deceased, and of being in a house with a long hall. Also having to wash clothes in some of the most bizarre contraptions (once it was part of an oven). I always dream in color. My cousin says he dreams "words" only--thoughts I guess.

I'd like to join this class. It would be at 4 central standard time on Saturdays, right? I did the book on my own about 8 years ago, and it was really helpful, very encouraging.

In TAW book,

Hello--What is TAW book? Is it a journal?

I have always been interested in what my sleeping self is trying to tell my waking self. I have used my dreams in my art often, and sometimes come to an understanding of what the dreams meant/mean.

For a long time, if a dream woke me, or if I remembered a dream, I would write whatever I could recall in a journal that I kept near my bed. It helped me to understand a lot. I trained myself to recall, too. It is surprisingly easy to do, once you have disciplined yourself to do so.

When I would read over that journal, after giving myself some time to forget what I'd written, very often, I would understand what had inspired the dream, and so, understand myself better.

I have been having really strange dreams recently as well, but never really connected them with TAW. Yikes.. if this is the case, this is really bringing out some pretty odd thoughts on my part.

Today I started my morning pages and I had the weirdest, most vivid dream!

I was going to start my morning pages yesterday, but I got up and got busy and just didn't write them. So last night I read some of that first chapter before falling asleep, and I told myself I was going to start the morning pages in the morning. And I had this vivid dream, with lots of people in it, from different countries, trying to get to a healing center, through a difficult and crowded path. Right when I got there at the healing center, and a "nurse" asked me to wait for a minute, my 2-year-old woke me up. I wrote my three pages in a flash, just describing this dream, and I could have written more (if it wasn't for the 2-year-old requesting my attention).

This dream reminded me of a dream I had when I was a kid, about a path and a struggle to get to an end, but now it was difficult - in my childhood's dream it was so much easier and was fun. So that made me think about my "either/ors", which I didn't think I had!

Why can't life be simple and easy and fun? Well, it's easy when you are a kid and you have someone else to think about paying bills and providing food and so on... Now I have to think for myself AND for my family, so yeah life will not be that easy anymore. How can that be a blurt? That's the truth! Even if it is a blurt, it still is the truth and I can't deny it - or can I?

What a telling dream Claudia!

I remember reading once that most people didn't get the significance of the inner child. Many people simply took it as permission to run rampant all over the place without respect for anyone else. That's why there was such a backlash whenever someone mentioned their inner child.

But the real significance of the inner child is that we are both the child and the parent. In other words, if we let our inner child out we have to watch out for it and take care of it just like we would our real child and give it just enough safety to have some fun and be creative.

Its tough playing dual roles though.

And I've also read that childhood dreams are pathways of your life path, - the life path and challenges that you will face. Whereas dreams you have as an adult are more related to your current life process.

Sounds like a wonderful childhood dream you had, Claudia. I'm sure, as an adult you'll be able to get thru the extra challenges, with that one in your past somehow guiding you! After all, you did get to the healing centre this time round, even if you did get woken up (by another child at that!).
