A DREAM IS JUST A DREAM UNTIL YOU PUT IT INTO ACTION
The word dream has two meanings in our language. Dreams can mean the nightly phenomena that we all create and can also be our greatest life ambitions. Although these two meanings seem quite different, they are fundamentally connected by a deeper level of self-awareness. By exploring your dreams and becoming more aware of what they mean, you naturally connect with practical ways to consistently fulfil your deepest aspirations.
About Ian Wallace
Ian Wallace is a best-selling author and popular broadcaster on the subject of dreams and pschology. Ian is widely acclaimed in the media for his live dream analysis, performed with an expert empathy and immediacy that entertains, informs and educates. He regularly appears on television, on radio and in print, where is consistently recognised and applauded for his articulacy, his accuracy and his authority. Ian is the originator of the Dream Connection Process, a uniquely powerful method that enables anyone to connect the imagery and symbolism that they create in their dreams to opportunities in waking life where they can use this insight to make a healthy difference.
Your dreams reflect the fundamental patterns of your waking life and, although your nightly dreams and your daily life may seem to have no connection, the word ‘dream’ also means your waking hopes and aspirations, as well as your night-time adventures. Even though the intentional pursuit of your waking dreams and the natural creation of your nocturnal dreams may seem to be entirely separate, they are both primarily driven by a deeper level of self-awareness that we all possess. This more elemental understanding of yourself is a natural human quality and is known as your unconscious awareness.
When exploring dreams, it can be all too easy to become fixated on the dream and find yourself ignoring the dreamer who is creating all the dreams. To really understand the meanings and messages from the dreams, it is incredibly helpful to have an understanding of the dreamer and their potential behaviour patterns. Psychology is the study of human behaviour and goes beyond the purely conscious and physical manifestations of what it means to be human. Although psychological studies can be complex explorations with many apparent contradictions, the basics of psychology are who you are, what you need and what you believe.
DREAMS DON'T HAPPEN TO YOU, YOU HAPPEN TO YOUR DREAMS
Dreams don’t just happen to you, you actually happen to your dreams. You create everything in your dreams. Every person you encounter, every place you go, every event you experience is generated by your unconscious self. By understanding why you create your unique dream content, you invariably achieve a profound understanding of who you really are, what you really need, and what you really believe.
This is also true for your dreams in waking life. Your greatest ambitions and deepest aspirations don’t just happen to you – you have to actively create them. By using the unconscious understanding you create every night in your dreams, you can connect far more deeply and successfully with your lifetime ambitions and aspirations.
