Dreams and Gems: Dreams are the jewels of your imagination, gems sparkling in the night
We may find the presence of gems, jewelry, and other talismans in our dreams that we can bring into our waking lives to inspire and empower ourselves. We can also mine our dreams for moments of magic that can change our lives forever. Gemologist and Dream Educator Jane Carleton will share stories of the surprising ways dream gems have charmed her life and offer ideas on how you can mine your own dreams for those sacred jewels that may enchant yours.
In This Session:
- Images of gems, jewelry and other talismans can bring gifts to a dreamer who values them, and by acting on sparkling dream messages and sacred images you may just change your life
- Consider ways to understand and work with the appearance of gems, minerals, jewelry, and other talismans that show up in your dreams
- Learn a Poetic Dream Synthesis Technique, developed by Fariba Bogzaran for mining dream gems to create a new, inspiring dream story
