#37 Dreams & Dreamers

You are the maker of the dream

Whatever you put into the dream must be what is in you.” – Fritz Perls.

There  is  little  doubt  that  your  dreams  can  impact  the  type  of  day  that  you  are  going  to  have. Dreams  can  indeed  be  very  significant. Dmitri  Mendeleev  came  up  with  the  idea  for  the  periodic  table  in  a  dream. Paul  McCartney  woke  up  with  a  tune  in  his  head  and   thought, ‘That’s great, I wonder what that is?’ and  began  to  write  down  the  music  for  what  became  “Yesterday” a  song  which  resonates  with  us  50  years  later.

How  does  our  day-dreaming  affect  our  conscious  lives ? Are  you  a  slave  to  your  unconscious  thinking ?

Is  it  possible  to  leverage  dreams  to  help  you  with  your  life ?

We  consider  these  questions  and  take  a  brief  look  at  what  Freud, Jung  and  the  Gestalt  theorists  had  to  say  about  dream  theory.

I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I enjoyed the discussion.
