Dreams are a way for God to reach us through the so-called back door, bypassing our analytical thinking and need for control. Dreams happen to us. They make the unconscious conscious, creatively mirror our current situation and often point us toward a solution.
The inner-world of imagination and dreams is also God’s gift to us and can be meaningful on the spiritual journey of becoming whole.
Recurring symbols in dreams and nightmares tell us important things and can be shifted in spiritual direction conversations.
A short seminar on the topic of “Dreams on the Spiritual Journey” offers background information and shows personal and biblical examples of how God speaks through dreams. It raises the participants’ awareness of how prayerful attention to important dreams (“the forgotten language of God”) can lead to fruitful personal growth.
