Some dreams preview the coming moments of the next day or week while others present as nightmares to flush discord out of one’s consciousness. Some dreams are wake up calls to shift directions and make new choices.

As I learned to recall my dreams, I’d often discover in a spontaneous epiphany that I had indeed dreamt the moment I was living, bringing astonishment and questioning the origin of physical reality. If I dreamt this moment before and am living it now, when did it start? Why is it so familiar? It’s different, yet new. Deja Vu.

Desiring to integrate the two worlds of dreamtime and the physical, I learned to dream of future moments and parallel lifetimes. I even learned to strike up conversations with future versions of myself, sharing and learning what he had discovered and how he had gotten to where he was. I learned to engage with intention, seek and receive answers. If I had a dream of something that correlated to a physical place, I would go to the physical location to discover what that physical place had for me, and how the two realities touched.

On one occasion, I had been spontaneously dreaming through the eyes of owls flying across my local landscape. In another dream I saw the nearby hills with pottery and ash. The next day, in my physical life, I went to the store where the dream took place. There were huge clay pots of many colors, garden fountains and sculptures of animals. An owl statue caught my eye. As I purchased the statue I told the owner that I had come because of a dream. To my surprise, she loved my story.

She told me, “When you dream of owls it means you are about to undergo a great adventure.”  She told me of an owl flying into her house. It had landed on a curtain rod. As she described the scene, I realized I had dreamt that moment through the eyes of the owl several nights before. For her it was a physical event occurring years before, yet for me, it was a recent dream.

This kind of connection is a taste of the incredible magic of synchronicity and connectivity we find in life. But first we must remember to act on our dreams. In this way the two seemingly separate realities become one. Going beyond our habitual comfort zones, we explore our creations and find ourselves seeing through new eyes.

Now my life’s deepest joy is finding where the physical and the non-physical dreamtimes meet. In working with the inner symbols of dreams, they overflow quite naturally into this so-called “solid” physical, “outer” reality appearing quite miraculously before me.

My dreams have become my trusted friends that know me as intimately as I know them.

For instance, while editing this article, I realized I had dreamt of an owl turning into a raven in the driveway outside my home. I asked myself, “What does an owl and raven mean to me?” My first thought was Owl means Spirit and Raven means Magic. In other words the non-physical spirit moves into physical magic. And now to my wonderment as I write this, ravens are cawing outside through my open door.

If you are called to know more of your dream self, and would like to practice these dream coaching methods, join me for my upcoming class.

Dreams, Intuition & Synchronicity: Coaching into the Endless Richness of Oneself

In this class you will practice stimulating and acting on your intuition, utilizing your imagination and realizing greater fulfilling states of awareness as you access the vastness of your being. The natural self that we all access when we allow, is a miracle to behold… and to be held by.

In Absolute Joy,
Mac Dryden, ACC, BS

When I initially signed up for Right Speech, I was skeptical that my communication skills could be improved by reading a couple of books and participating in a couple of class exercises but I was wrong. This class has drastically improved the way I communicate on a personal and professional level. I now have a full toolbox of techniques to better communicate with co-workers, family members, and practically anyone. The skills that I have learned have help me to improve relationships, facilitate meetings, and interact with others more effectively. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn how to better communicate.

This class is a terrific investigation of the ways that mindfulness and meditation can support both the coach and client, with specific practices, tips for consistency, and scientific evidence all explored. I learned new skills for leading meditation class, supporting client well being, and deepening my own meditation practice.

STRETCH is fun and exciting and got my creative juices flowing. I was surprised at how much I learned about what I needed, and didn’t need to move forward in launching my coaching business. I also gained more clarity on how I want to deliver my message of what I do. Read more

The Dynamic Trio was an excellent introduction to the EMDR protocol, giving insights to students who were new to the techniques presented, like me, and also to students familiar with EMDR from use in trauma treatment. We got to experience the power of EMDR for coaching ourselves from the instructor’s skillful examples in class with actual student situations presented. I think we were all impressed with the results.

[The Dynamic Trio] was a great class that mixed experiential learning with incredible tools that I could use immediately with clients.  Ann-Marie was an incredible instructor with a myriad of knowledge and experience from many different backgrounds. I really appreciated her ability to interact so personally and intentionally with students in the class all while teaching a strong skill set.

Simply put, when I was taught coaching by a popular institute, I learned to coach thoughts and feelings. When I was taught The Dynamic Trio: EMDR, Positive Psychology, and Somatic Coaching at MCS, I learned how to feel those feelings and release them. The mind and body connected; this was the missing link for me.
Moira ClearyStudent CoachJohns Creek, GA
As a certified EMDR therapist working as a psychotherapist for the past 12 years, my focus has been helping others deal with the aftermath of trauma. That has taken a toll on my soul. This was my first class with a focus on positive psychology. I am left with a stirring feeling of hope that I can truly help others to thrive, not just survive. Thank you!
