From earliest beginnings of human civilization, we have considered dreams a doorway to the soul. Jung saw that they showed us parts of ourselves that were being rejected by our waking consciousness: strengths unexpressed and shadow figures run amok; qualities that we were missing about ourselves; and desires that we’d rather not acknowledge. The mission of dreams was to balance us, to compensate for our often one-sided attitude toward life and lead us to integrate what we need for health and growth. We know today that dreams can have messages for us that are not only psychologically relevant, but even biologically urgent, relaying information about illness. Jung introduced the term “wholeness” to describe the aim of the unconscious: the further filling out of ourselves; an increasing completeness in the unique being that we are.
Dream Matrix dream work is practical and direct way of facilitating an understanding of our unconscious mind and learning how following it can help us heal. Each dream is a template of who we are at any given moment, showing us not only our issues in our waking life but the matrix of deep issues working beneath our conscious awareness, powerful archetypal forces that affect the way we see the world. Maybe we suffer the old pain of shame and blame from our childhood experiences, pathological pride or rebelliousness, trying to please, rage, despair, etc. We are often blind to their unconscious power over us in our daily lives.
Using Gestalt techniques, we enter into a conversation with the elements of the dream. It is possible to see how our personal projections and reactions in our dreams and thus reflected in our lives are barriers to our being fully alive. As we do this work, we begin to become more connected to the divine archetypal forces in the dreams and their support and healing.
