Putting a Dream Dictionary into Perspective By Laura Grace
Rich with symbols, archetypes and metaphoric meaning, dreams are an invaluable healing instrument, and when regularly used and understood, are pathways to higher consciousness, healed relationships, health, fulfilling your life's purpose and greater abundance.

Yet I know in my heart (and from past experience), that the only true method for making a decision that supports the greatest good of everyone involved--is to  [More...]

Understanding Your Personal Dream Symbols By Laura Grace
There are certain kinds of symbols that appear in your nightly dreams and some of them are Archetypes or Universal symbols.

Making Room For Love: Join a 21-day Complaint Fast By Laura Grace
Despite the focus on manifesting more "stuff" most of us desire what's real - something that fulfills our heart and soul, and meaningful relationships are right up there, at the top of the list.

Interpreting Your Personal Dream Symbols By Laura Grace
Just like dream characters, every dream symbol represents a part of you. In fact, each symbol is you. Quite often, one dream symbol stands out in each dream. This symbol is a key factor and is worthy of your attention and understanding. Sometimes personal dream symbols set the tone or "theme" for the dream. For example, if you dreamt of making the bed with your partner, the dream symbol that stands out is "bed" and "partner" and may imply you need to work on some intimacy issues within your relationship.  [More...]


Waking Dreams: Are You Paying Attention? By Laura Grace
The universe is always communicating to us. Coincidence, synchronicity, and waking dreams provide us with meaningful direction on our spiritual paths. Carl Jung, a pioneer in this area once wrote: "Synchronicity is a causal principle of the universe, a law that operates to move human beings toward greater growth in consciousness." Our spiritual awareness expands as we pay attention to everything that happens in our "outer world," or in other words, our daily circumstances. Since we are connected to all things, reality appears to be outside of us, but that's merely an illusion, created by a finite point of view. If you could...  [More...]


Spiritual Imagineering: Creating a Life Rich in Spirit By Laura Grace
The term spiritual imagineering is a port-manteau word, meaning two or more words that when combined, give a loaded meaning. "Imagineering" is a term that was created by one of the most creative minds in American culture: Walt Disney. It is a fusion of the words "imagination" and "engineering." In his research on Disney, Robert Dilts, author of Strategies of Genius, states that genius is "the ability to take something that exists in the imagination only and forge it into a physical existence that directly influences the experience of others in a positive way."   [More...]

Meaning of Names in Dreams: How Dreams Teach Us through Word Play By Laura Grace
Have you ever recalled a specific name in a dream? Michelle had a dream of a character whose name is "Frank." In waking life, she doesn't know anyone named "Frank," so she is confused about this character. But by focusing on the name, she begins to see how the name of the character is suggesting that she needs to be more "frank" in a work related situation she is struggling with. Michelle has been too timid and in asserting herself. In this case, the name of the dream character says it all. Sometimes dreams teach you through word play...   Read on.


Waking Dreams: Are You Paying Attention? By Laura Grace
Since we are connected to all things, reality appears to be outside of us, but that's merely an illusion, created by a finite point of view. If you could rise above this plane of consciousness, you would see the world as one molecule of energy, made up of thoughts and feelings. You would see people's thought manifesting into form around them. Beyond the earth plane, there is no internal or external reality—it's all one and it begins within. That's why working with the outer realm; the synchronicity or interpreting the waking dream, can help you awaken more quickly and decrease the amount of struggling and suffering. For example...
