The Dream Journal
Meet the Empassioned Dream Girl, Sharon Pastore

Our guest is a certified dream group leader, a marketing strategist AND a musician who writes and performs her own dream-inspired songs (two of which we play on the show). We talk about the visitation dream that inspired her early interest in dreams and what inspired her to go deeper to receive her certification with the Institute for Dream Studies. We also talk about using active imagination for honing brands and envisioning career choices.

We take a call from Pamela from Los Angeles who asks if she gets to decide on the meaning of her own dream.
