As this podcast goes to air, we are starting to move out of retrograde energies. First, the Mars retrograde has been allowing you to go back over situations to make corrections in the way you handle your anger, conflict, self-motivation, and even sexual relationships.  As it comes to an end, at 8 degrees Gemini, it will be a moment of deepened intimacy and emotional transformation.

Mars is the planet of energy, action, and sexual desire. In modern astrology, Mars is the ruler of the fire sign Aries. Mars is a planet that excites us into action.  So notice what actions you are ready to take.

We are still in Mercury Retrograde and will see this planet move direct on or around the 18th of Jan, so get ready to start feeling like this new year is finally taking off.

This will be a year of getting out of your comfort zone and breaking free of your old fears. You may not be able to change the past, but you can change the story and how you approach your path for 2023.

We are vibrating to a higher frequency, more refined, and aware.

Everything in life and on your path has meaning. We all come into this lifetime with a purpose.  

And even if you cannot see the invisible threads of creation connecting it all, trust that all the threads are weaving this fabric of life together for you in wholeness.

It is important to find ways to tend to the struggles of your life with the RITES of the mystery schools that can offer you inspiration, amusement, and joy.

Rites being Reiki… Intuition… Tarot… EFT and Stones and crystals.

These tools can free you from the unnecessary stress that Is going on in the world.

All these cosmic forces and energy alignments, I talk about on my Energy Focus for the Week which you can find live on Sunday nights on Instagram and FB. 

As we move through these comic transitions, now is the time to clean up your energy with a deep Akashic Soul Reading.  Schedule one… in person or online. When you work with the energy body, it helps to release the old patterns and all that old stuff you carry around.

I am opening up just a couple of spots for my private mentoring this winter…   Empowered Spirit Private Mentoring Program.

Schedule a Spiritual Upgrade Breakthrough call with me and let’s talk about how my programs can help you.

Living your dreams, not someone else’s is a theme for this new year.

Knowing your energy, your dreams, and your vision is so important.

So my guest today is Linda Schiller who works deeply with dreamwork.  Her latest book is PTSDreams: Transform your Nightmares from Trauma through Healing Dreamwork. In the episode, we talk about the many types of dreams, nightmares, how to remember your dreams, why some people say they don’t remember them, how you can use them to heal, her GAIA system of dreamwork, consciousness, and trauma.

Nightmares, especially those caused by trauma, not only disrupt your sleep but can leave you exhausted, on edge, and haunt your daylight hours. With in-depth information on the nature of nightmares, international speaker, author, and psychotherapist Linda Yael Schiller show you how to turn anxiety filled or heart pounding dreams into resources for spiritual growth. Her four decades of experience in both dreamwork and trauma treatment provide the reader with guidelines for turning PTSDreams into PTSG: Post Trauma Spiritual Growth.

Armed with effective techniques and her warm compassionate voice, you can learn to safely heal post-traumatic nightmares and their root causes. Linda teaches the Guided Active Imagination Approach (GAIA), a method she developed based on best-practice trauma treatment and Jungian active imagination principles. Through compelling case descriptions and thoughtful exercises, you will learn how to apply a multiplicity of integrated and embodied dreamwork techniques as well as somatic, narrative, and psycho-spiritual approaches. Combining neuroscience, healing, mysticism, and creativity, PTSDreams helps you transform nightmares into a new story: one of hope, healing, and life-affirming images.

The # 1 way to remember your dreams is to value them and put attention to them.

  1. value them and appreciate them that there is some higher conscious
  2. Write them down to anchor them 

Dreams come in multiple layers:

  • Regular dreams- fun and intriguing, interesting
  • Nightmares
  • Recent or historical trauma 
  • Reoccurring

Many types of dream analysis:

  • Gestalt method
  • Dream reentry
  • Symbols
  • Metaphors
  • Association 
  • Guided active imagination approach
  • GAIA method

Sometimes we can wake up with the consciousness of the emotions which is a type of dream too.

The final stage of healing is using what happened to you to help others. Gloria Stein

Why not try to remember your dreams?  It is your consciousness.  It can help you to heal your trauma, and live the life you choose.

The greatest thing we each can do right now is our own self-healing so that we can shine our light.  As you heal and shine your light, you offer others to do the same.

Make dreamwork a priority in your life.

Get a dream journal.

Writing them down.

Notice the healing that can come forward for you.

Reach out to Linda for her books.

Thanks again for listening!

To your Spirit,
