We speak with Lauren Schneider about how our dreams prepare us for what’s to come in waking life. She gives examples of her own precognitive dreams ranging from mundane problem-solving dreams to sublime encounters. She also shares dreams that her mother had over the years leading up to her recent passing. Lauren gives us ideas about how to successfully incubate dreams by ramping up our state of yearning and also how to use a daily drawing of tarot cards as a spiritual practice. Lauren talks about how the children of survivors are often themselves stressed or even die before their parents.
We then take a caller from Ray of Westside Santa Cruz who shares a dream of trying to get his empty plate filled with food. Lauren and Katherine explore ideas about how the dream might be offering help with Ray’s desire to put on some weight, and we also muse about the collective aspects of the dream relating to how we feed ourselves as a species going forward. We finish by addressing how dreams so often reflect aspects of the larger collective in addition to the particular needs of the dreamer.
