Mindful Psychology

What Do Your Dreams Mean?

What can you learn from your dreams? Dreams allow us to process important information or events that we are working through in our daily life but may not be aware of what the problem or solution is. Dreams bring a deeper awareness to our lives and help us to sort through conflicts or desires that are kept below our conscious thinking during our busy daily lives.

Dreaming is the communication bridge between our conscious and unconscious mind, helping us to create a more full and purposeful life.

Dreams let us play out painful or puzzling emotions or experiences in a… Continue reading
