Dream a little dream

Dream a little dream blog photo karencoachesWe all dream during REM sleep. Maybe some of us are better at it than others: vivid color! Logical linear timeline! People you love! Rainbows and butterflies! But we all do it. We just don’t all remember doing it.

There is plenty of advice out there about how to remember your dreams, such as programming yourself to wake up after your dream by telling yourself you will do this before you go to bed. Or, asking your guides and angels to please remind you what your dream message was. Writing it down as soon as you wake up-even if it’s in the middle of the night-can also work.

I have tried all of these measures, but the method that has worked the best for my by far is to voice record the dream as soon as I wake up-yes, even if it’s in the middle of the night! Hey, if you have a train to catch and you are not a morning person, it can be hard. I get it. No pressure. You don’t have to do it every time, but do it any time you can.

I know this works, because I have at least five dreams right now recorded on my iPhone that I have no memory of otherwise. It’s fascinating to listen to your half-awake self relaying dream sequences that you don’t even remember having, nevermind recording! Also, you can talk much faster than you can write, so this process enables you to catch details that you might otherwise forget.

It also gives you plenty of time to write them down later, stopping the recording to give your pen time to catch up with your voice. I find this process helps me with decoding my dreams as well. I have experience flashes of insight during the transcription process that I feel I would not otherwise have had.

Try it! Let me know how it works for you! Visit my blog: karencoaches.com, and my Facebook page: Metaphysical Nurse.

What to call your book

I have been working on a book about my metaphysical practices for about six months now, and it’s going very well, except for one thing.
I am not sure what to call it!  It’s not that I can’t think of a title, it’s that I can think of so many titles that I don’t know which one to pick. This also happened to me when I was writing my novel, One Brave Thing.

One day, I had a very vivid dream, where I heard a phrase very clearly, and it woke me up. I didn’t even have to write this down, it was so clear (but of course, I did!). When I first got it, I wasn’t sure of its significance.  Of course, I knew it was important, I just wasn’t sure why.

And then I told someone about the dream. And she immediately said, ‘That’s your next book title’.

O.M.G.

You can’t make this stuff up.

The 81st day of my first 100 days of GRACE

I was driving with my daughter this morning on a quick errand, when she asked me this question:

Izzy: What is the significance of June 19th?

Me: Why do you ask?

Izzy: It’s been on my mind and I can’t think of what it means.

Me: It’s your great grandmother Emily’s birthday.  

Nana Emily

Izzy’s middle name is Emily. so I reminded her that this is my grandmother whom she was named for. Next, I mentioned that I had a dream about that Nana a few days ago.

And then this  happened: A black pick up truck passed us with the license plate: GRACE

I know! Right? So I told her that from all these signs, it was so very clear that Nana was letting us know that she is with us.
