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,

My experience being an MCS student has been one of the most enriching in my entire life. It has brought me closer to my nature. I have more faith in the process of life, in the process of coaching, and in the process of being.

[Dynamic Trio] was truly the highlight of my week. I loved the material that we covered and the positive energy of Ann-Marie. I recommend this class to anyone who is looking for new exercises or experience possibilities for their clients. But I give an even stronger recommendation or anyone looking for continuing self-care. Such a wonderful personal and professional opportunity.

This course [Body Electric] really teaches you how to dive deep into somatic awareness. I was looking to get more comfortable with this practice and the class exceeded my expectations from the book to the instructor, Ann-Marie, to the guest lecturers. Many “WOW” moments as I used the techniques for myself and with my clients.

STRETCH does just that…it stretches your understanding of what a coach is/does, it stretches your thoughts and insights about yourself and your journey and it stretches your bonds with your classmates to learn from their collective experiences and knowledge. This was an enlightening and thoroughly enjoyable class that really pushed you to think from a variety of perspectives and to also really think about who you are, the story you tell and why. I am sad it is over.
Lara T. AbreuStudent CoachPleasanton, California
This class taught me a lot more than I expected. I worked through some really hard issues in my writing and came out on the other side, with amazing insights and feeling very accomplished. The instructor worked seamlessly, incorporating coaching and writing skills into each class, demonstrating how therapeutic writing can be and how to incorporate it in coaching our clients.
