Exploring Our Ego and True Self through Dream Analysis

Explore the power of your dreams and learn how they can help you understand your lower and higher nature. Our dreams use metaphors to guide us towards self-transformation and personal growth.

In this article, we’ll take you through a reflection exercise that can help you understand your own psyche and how it relates to your lower and higher nature. By practicing this exercise regularly, you can gain deeper insights into yourself and use these insights to improve your relationships with others.

This exercise was first published in “Unlocking the Power of Your Dreams,” a 30-page Ebook filled with practical steps and tips for understanding your dreams which is included in The Dreamer’s Toolkit for Self-Discovery.

As the image depicts a person sitting in a relaxed position in nature, it suggests the idea of meditation or reflection. This image could be used to represent the introspective nature of dream interpretation and the importance of taking time to reflect on one's inner thoughts and emotions.  it may evoke a sense of calm and serenity, further emphasizing the idea of inner exploration and self-discovery.

Four key principles of my approach to dream interpretation is that 1) human beings are equal 2) we all have a lower & higher nature [ego & true self] 3) our dreams guide us to transform our lower natures and develop our higher nature 4) dreams use metaphors to give these messages.

Our dreams can be a reflection of both our lower nature and higher nature. In this article, we’ll explore a dream you’ve had and see how it relates to your own understanding of these concepts.


  1. Take a few moments to think about a dream you’ve had recently. If you don’t remember any, try to recall one from the past that left an impression on you.
  2. Write down a brief summary of the dream. Don’t worry about including every detail, just focus on the key elements that stand out to you.
  3. Now, take a moment to reflect on the dream. How did you feel during the dream? What emotions did you experience? Did any particular symbols or images stand out to you? Write down your reflections in a journal or notebook.
  4. Next, consider how the dream relates to your understanding of lower nature and higher nature. Did the dream involve any behaviors or actions that you associate with your lower nature? (Behaviours caused by fear, anger, jealousy, hurt, etc) Did it involve any moments of empowerment or strength where you did something in the dream that was helpful that could be seen as representative of your higher nature? Write down your thoughts in your journal or notebook.
  5. Finally, think about what you can learn from the dream. Is there a message or lesson that you can take away from it? How can you use this understanding of your lower and higher nature to improve your life and relationships with others? Write down any insights or intentions that come to mind.

By exploring your dreams in this way, you can gain a deeper understanding of your own psyche and how it relates to your understanding of lower nature and higher nature. Keep practicing this exercise regularly, and you may find that your dreams become a powerful tool for self-discovery and growth.

The Benefits of Journaling: How Writing Can Improve Your Mental Health

Journaling is a powerful tool for improving mental health and emotional wellbeing. Writing about our thoughts, feelings, and experiences can help us process difficult emotions, gain clarity and insight, and reduce stress and anxiety. In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of journaling and how you can get started with this powerful practice.

First and foremost, journaling can help us gain a better understanding of ourselves. By writing about our thoughts and feelings, we can identify patterns, triggers, and behaviors that may be holding us back or causing us distress. This can help us make positive changes in our lives and improve our relationships with ourselves and others.

Journaling can also help us manage stress and anxiety. By writing down our worries and concerns, we can release them from our minds and create a sense of distance and perspective. This can help us feel more grounded and in control, even in the midst of difficult circumstances.

Finally, journaling can be a form of self-care and self-compassion. By taking the time to write about our experiences and emotions, we are acknowledging and validating our own feelings and experiences. This can be a powerful form of self-acceptance and self-love, which can improve our overall wellbeing and quality of life.

If you’re interested in starting a journaling practice, it’s important to find a format and approach that works for you. Whether you prefer free-form writing, prompts, or structured exercises, there are many resources available to help you get started. Remember, journaling is a personal and private practice, so don’t worry about grammar, spelling, or making everything sound perfect. Just write from the heart and let the words flow.
