8 Basic Steps of Dream Re-entry


nightmares agin You have just had a really bad dream. Why would you ever want to re-enter that nightmare? Don’t we prefer to forget what is not peasant? One of the important reasons to re-enter a dream is to allow the relationships in your dream to grow and develop in a positive manner.  Our nightmares can be a blessing in disguise and a call to action.  

This was addressed previously in  my blog 4 Benefits to Re-enering Your Dream.

Kathleen O’Keefe-Kanavos and Tallulah Lyons are in constant contact with their spirit guides in dreams and use information from their dream journals to findanswers to questions by re-entering dreams.  They combined their personal

experiences and shared it on the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD) online Symposium. The goal of this symposium is to share cutting-edge research and information on dreams, spirit guides and  Dreaming-with-Others for research. This information is then shared with medical practitioners, students, mystics, metaphysicians,  and the world community of dreamers.

Here are steps practiced by Katheen and Tallulah on how to re-enter your dream for clarification, contact and retrieval of forgotten information.

  1. Follow the breath into a deeply relaxed state;
  2. enter an imaginal healing sanctuary;
  3. invite Supportive Presence/Inner Guide;
  4. re-enter the dream from a new perspective staying grounded in a sense of support and guidance;
  5. allow the elements of the dream to move and shift;
  6. allow new insights, perspectives and interactions;
  7. imagine the transformed imagery as healing energy;
  8. imagine sending the healing energy into any part of the body, mind, or spirit that needs special tending.

Tallulah has developed several guided imagery scripts that can be found in Dreams and Guided Imagery. The scripts are for deep relaxation, nightmare transformation, inviting a healing waking dream, and for integrating healing symbols. The recordings also can be downloaded from the website: www.healingpowerofdreams.com.

Last year, Laura Huff Hileman used one of Tallulah’s guided imagery scripts in a study to evaluate the effect on the transformation of nightmares. In unprompted reports of dreamers who used the guided imagery with their disturbing dreams, 61% – 92% reported movement from anxiety to a sense of safety, transformation of imagery from troubling to helpful, insights for waking life, and an increase in confidence and empowerment.

Kathleen has developed a free introductory meditation tape available for download on her webste www.SurvivingCancerLand.com to help clients use breathing techniques to enter and re-enter the dream-state for their dreamwork.

Dream journaling is an excellent source for researching personal dream delema and information. By dream-tracking, keeping track of dreams that my be recurrent or important, you can highlight questions or dream events and re-enter dreams to research the answers.

Not all dreams are filled with life altering information that must be remembered. However, when you are in crisis or plan to make the “mistake of a lifetime,” our ET (Eternal Teacher) phones home for help.
guide again Dreams are phone lines to the “other side.”

Spirit guides send information through dreams that not only diagnose illness but  can diagnose and guide you toward creative relationship with all aspect of your  life.
Re-entering your dreams is an excellent way to dialogue with self and your spirit guides.
