Dream Guidance: Connecting to the Soul Through Dream Incubation
by Machiel Klerk
Harness the power of your unconscious through dream incubation: an age-old technique to access hidden wisdom and receive instruction through your dreams.
Everyone dreams-both literally and metaphorically-but most people don’t know that their dreams can be used for personal development. Therapist, dream expert, and founder of the Jung Society of Utah and the Jung Platform Machiel Klerk shares how, through dream incubation, you can manifest the life of your dreams just by cultivating an intimate relationship with your own dreams and taking the guidance you receive from your subconscious. If you ask the right question and keep an open mind, your dream will give you an answer. Klerk offers an easy, actionable five-step process to help you have an incubation dream, a dream that reveals the answer to your question.
1. Identify the problem and decide that you’d like to ask your dream for help.
2. Develop a question that relates directly to the issue for which you are seeking answers.
3. Engage in a ritual aimed to enhance the dream response, like meditation.
4. Sleep, and upon waking, immediately record your dream or dreams.
5. Reflect on the dream and determine the “lesson” it offered.
