Occasionally, we have dreams that seem to be somehow related. The same characters interact, for example. Or we come to know they have a common theme. Another type of series is a set is where it feels like “the same song, second verse.”
What our Dream-Maker might be telling us is that we are in the midst of working through an unfinished issue. Each dream adds information to our ongoing awareness. And one of the things we know is that we have the dreams that we can psychologically tolerate.
Even our nightmares eventually become less scary. Your Dream-Maker will not give you anything that you can’t eventually deal with.
Be clear-eyed about this. Do the work, become more self-aware and move on.
When trying to understand one of your dreams, it can be helpful to give your dream a name. In doing that, think about going with your first impression. What is the name that pops into your mind? That will often be the most authentic representation of the dream. In other words, don’t over-think the dream’s title.
Another advantage to naming your dream could be realize that you have had a series of related dreams. You may be working through a recurrent issue. The dream drama might be like Act 1, Act 2, Act 3, etc.
Naming your dream might, indeed, unlock the true meaning of your dream.

To work with a dream, think about what has occurred in the previous couple of days, and notice your associated thoughts. These are clues that can help you interpret your dream or series of dreams.
It will be a welcome time when the political conventions appear. As voters, we will have the opportunity to see the candidates for President and Vice President interact with delegates in ways that will impact on the election in the fall. Because of the immediacy of TV, we will be able to ascertain intellect, sense of humor, nimbleness, preparedness and empathy. What a deal for us. And after that we have coming the debates. It will be an interesting year, to say the least.
