I heard the idea that our dreams are sometimes our subconscious's attempt to tell the stories we need told.
I actually have lots of anxiety dreams all the time, and this made me really think about the work that we do while dreaming and the work we do while journaling.
I know that journaling also channels some of this energy - from our untold stories to self-expression that relieves our need to tell and feel heard, even if just by ourselves.
I now have a special journal dedicated to remembering my dreams, as well as my shamanic journeys, and it is so interesting to see how the patterns are emerging.
To be heard, to say what we need to say, dreams and journaling - awesome ways to do this!
