Using Your Midlife Dreams for Guidance
At midlife, it’s common to have intense dreams that aren’t fully understood, feel strange or curious and even terrifying. Believe it or not, these midlife dreams are often trying to support us, engage new helpful guiding energy and get us back on track, living a life we love.
Midlife dreams, when they are explored, help reshape you to be in line with your higher purpose, or destiny.
Midlife awakenings often stir up dreams about your first love or maybe dreams of dying, flying and being chased by wild animals. These midlife dreams can be interesting, a bit scary and exciting as they hold keys to moving forward in your life. Seek answers through your dreams about change, work, relationships, purchases of new homes and cars as well as who you are becoming. To approach your midlife as a transformation, not a crisis, your dreams become a helpful tool in your midlife transformation toolbox.
Don’t ignore your dreams, start to pay attention to them! Wake up more slowly to remember more of your dreams. Write your dreams down early in the morning. Tracking your midlife dreams over time will reveal important stepping stones for living a more graceful, fulfilling midlife transformation.

Engaging Your Midlife Dreams
Midlife dream-work involves playing with the energy of your dreams.
Rather than using the thinking mind to analyze the midlife dream, we engage a process of using the heart-mind to become aware of the energy that is trying to reach us, to inspire and guide us on a more fulfilling path.
We pay attention to the feelings both in and upon awakening from the dream. And, in a dream session, you are offered another angle on the midlife dream that helps pull additional details, guidance, and energy into your waking life!
