Dream Incubation for Greater Self Awareness with Kelly Lydick

Today we talk with author Kelly Lydick about her new release Dream Incubation for Greater Self Awareness. Kelly is a Gateway Dreaming Coach, Reiki Master and is the founder of Waking the Dream.

We start off by speaking about the importance of aligning of mind, body and spirit and how dreams bring us into balance and help us manage our self awareness. Kelly give specific suggestions around dream incubation including what kinds of questions to ask and what rituals will enhance the incubation. We also speak about working with colors in dreams using the chakra system and about incubation around creative projects. Kelly suggests that dream recall can be enhanced by trying different body positions when we wake up. We also talk about children and dreams.

We take three callers. The first is from Chris from Felton who asks about the possible connection between body position and cerebral spinal fluid. The second is Sandra from Texas who shares a dream about a person in a wheelchair. The third caller is Diana from San Antonio who shares a dream about a little girl and a closet.
