Dream work is an important part of my (for want of better terminology) spirituality, or spiritual-type practice.
Although I also do trance work, dreams are the easiest, most natural, and readily available route to the subconscious, as well as the collective subconscious. I interpret them and I dream walk (often known as lucid dreaming).
Anyway, this post isn't about dream work, it's about having a whinge about something right?
Since becoming a mama I haven't done any dream work. Okay, a little interpretation here and there. Overall, having a baby that is the Worst Sleeper Ever, means that I am ripped out of dreams suddenly and must attend to her needs. Dreams are forgotten, I have no energy or focus to dream walk.... all that matters is SLEEP.
This is one among several aspects to my spiritual practice that I am missing greatly.
I'm thankful anyway for this because....
...not being able to do dream work is due to being a mama.
...having mostly interrupted and light sleep means, ironically, that I am dreaming more, and whilst I cannot work consciously with them, my mind is having the opportunity to process through many thoughts and emotions.
...I'm having to be creative about processing thoughts and emotions.
...I believe that some of my creativity stems from needing this outlet.
