Letting Go with Guy Finley

QUESTION
Much work has been done concerning the use of dream interpretation to help us understand ourselves. Do you see a real value in recording and interpreting our dreams to aide our self-development?

ANSWER
To the mind that wishes to awaken and the heart that won’t be denied, there is nothing in our lives that cannot be used to further this realization. There is a certain amount of insight one can gain through studying dreams after the fact. This requires a non-identified mind, for any thoughts that are reactions to the images in the dream are themselves extensions of the unconscious states of the “dreamer.” Most True discoveries (insights) occur in the moment the event unfolds. Analyzing and interpreting past images is fraught with “dangers” because the mind that recalls such images changes them as it recollects. Further along in one’s development, it is possible to dream lucidly, but this is a different story.
