Today’s item is #28 in the series 33 Ways to work with your Dreams.
#28- Look for the movement of the Divine.
Finding God in all things is at the core of Ignatian Spirituality and is rooted in our growing awareness that God can found in every one, in every place and in everything. When we learn to pay more attention to God, we become more thankful and reverent, and through this we become more devoted to God, more deeply in love with our Creator.
God is in all things. The spirit that permeates our world also permeates our dream world. One way to work with a dream is to ask the question, “Where is the movement of God in this dream?” This very powerful dream question was taught to me by Bob Haden, author of Unopened Letter from God and founder of the Haden Institute.
It is a profoundly deep but simple question that honestly can be applied to all dreams. In my opinion, it brings one very quickly into the contemplative mind set of wonder and curiosity. Try it and see how it guides you.
Unpacking a dream can be superficial sometimes. We like to know that a red cardinal means new birth or that dreaming of flying means success in waking life. We like simple answers that point us in simple directions and that lead to shallow, easy to follow adventures.
But asking yourself, “Where is the movement of the Divine in this dream?” can lead to more meaningful dialogue and discoveries about your dream and might just set you on an adventure, a pilgrimage, of a lifetime.
