“All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dreams.”
― Edgar Allan Poe
Dreams connect you to the outer world, and connect you with the higher self. This weird phenomena has always been interesting not only for the researchers but also for the people in general. The conversations with the higher self happens not in the waking hours but, only in a dream. Carl Jung posits a path to decipher the this phenomena, where he believes that the rich characters whom we encounter can lead us best to extract the meaning of our dreams.
To tap into the powerful portals of the divine through your dreams, you can follow some ways. Set an intention, as the universe can only act in accordance with what we directly command. Keep a dream journal to record your dreams as soon as you can. To interpret your dream personally, go back to the jottings and see what is transpired. Once you see the characters and themes, you can readily understand them.

It is always good to craft your own object of power for your nighttime journeys:
1 – Gather Sacred Items
Traditional dream catchers include bone, feathers, crystals and beads, and they are light weight, so avoid heavy objects.
2 – Choose The Frame
To frame this, you will need a 2-6 foot length of pliable material. Remember that the gathered items should feel important to you.
3 – Weave The Hoop
Weaving the sinew through the hoop, is perhaps the most important ritualistic step. All myths carry stories of weavers. Weaving is the act of creating the web of time. While you weave your hoop, hold your intention close to your heart and chant your selected mantra.
