The GENIUS POTENTIAL in all DREAMS
A few days ago a 17-year-old male, a junior in high school, visited our school branch to express his personal concerns. He was skipping classes and hanging out with his girlfriend looking forever for something worth while to do.
I asked him, “How may I help you?”
He very calmly said, “I would like to awaken each morning, just looking forward to the day.”
As a Dream Interpretation Coach I then explained his dreams were repeatedly telling him that he too often places his self-value on what others expect and he becomes caught up in the competitive circumstances in his life. We spoke about his need to reflect on what is important to him and to focus his attention on causing his own desires. I
told him, “You can give your life the excitement and direction you desire just by deciding what you want to experience or accomplish in life.” I urged the young man to spend the next couple of days composing a list of 10 things he wants most in the next few years. Suddenly his eyes lit up, as he asked for a piece of paper and pen. I could tell he just saw his future and in a totally different light.
His mother called me the next day asking, “What did you tell him? My son, the distant stranger of the past few months, actually smiled at me on his way to school, and he left on time! Then I went up into his room to put clothes in his drawers and I saw two lists lying on his bed with big red titles, WHAT I WANT”. I too, then smiled from ear to ear, fulfilled by her happiness and thrilled with the genius of dream interpretation that redirected her son setting a new path of freedom in creating his life.• –Kerry Keller, Nat’l.

ICE CREAM ENTREPRENEUR's DREAMS COME TRUE
Today, I met Steve.
Having just moved from Bloomington, Indiana, Steve was looking for a new job as a chef. That was his reason for attending the entrepreneur networking event in Indianapolis.
Steve’s brilliance and influence unfolded before me as he described how he prefers making ‘health conscious’ meals because of his extensive use of raw herbs.
He also loves to speak to groups about healthy life changes his chef recipes offer.
Then Steve said something that made my mouth water.
For the last seven years, Steve has owned his own healthy ‘Hand Made Ice Cream Shop’ where everything is made with herbs and no sugar! What a concept!
My weakness is ‘ICE CREAM’, so I asked him, “Do you dream about ice cream too?”
Steve had a ready reply. “My dream last night had me providing the first of three workshops to corporate executives. I was teaching the emotional value of eating Healthy Ice Cream to CEO’s.”
Being unaware of the dream’s significance, Steve thought it was a funny dream. As a Dream Interpretation Coach, I knew his dream’s message revolved around seeing the good in all kinds of knowledge.
In the dream, the second speaker after him was a negative person. “I decided to make a friendly gesture and offered him some ice cream before he started speaking,” Steve said. “Then I promptly spilled it all over his shirt. He had to remove his shirt and began to speak to the audience naked from his trousers up! To my surprise, people were not alarmed and paid more attention to him. He was very positive and received a standing ovation.”
As a universal symbol, the appearance of food in a dream symbolizes knowledge. Typically, ice cream would tend to indicate knowledge that is not very healthy or productive knowledge. Steve’s ice cream is different because healthy ingredient ice cream is his business. This is a perfect example of how context in dreams is essential to the dream’s interpretation.
I told Steve that the day before this dream, he had been influencing others through sharing what he knows. Clothes in a dream indicate how others see us. The negative dream character’s wardrobe dilemma was Steve’s subconscious mind’s way of letting him know that being open and honest pays! Steve was smiling and curious!
“The dream makes so much sense,” he said. “I had just applied for a corporate chef’s position the previous day, thinking most restaurants would only accept a meat and potatoes type Chef. Owners are usually into herbs only as flavor enhancements, and not as health or healing properties. I decided to state what was important to me, my beliefs in herbs as health oriented.”
Steve shared what he knew honestly and his subconscious mind was validating him through his dream’s message. Minutes after our conversation Steve was hired in a phone call. Seems the corporate CEO liked the idea of teaching his employees how to be healthy eaters.
Steve learned something significant about himself. His dream afforded an opportunity for increased self-respect in this experience. It reflected the value of standing up for what he knows especially when others are unaware. Being a leader means thinking and acting beyond the norm. This is why Steve landed a “dream come true” career opp.
Steve’s dream experience is a classic example of the Dream Consciousness Circuit. We’ll explore this concept more in the weeks to come. For now, start recording your dreams and submitting them here at dreamschool.org. Your dream may be chosen for interpretation by the experts at our online Dream Catchers gatherings every Wednesday evening at 7:30 pm EASTERN time.• –Kerry Keller, Nat’l.

WHAT'S UP with PEOPLE NOT NOTICING I'M NAKED?
A student of dream interpretation offered one of her dreams in class the other day. It was a familiar dream that everyone has probably heard. Jenn dreamed she was:
Walking down a busy sidewalk in downtown Indianapolis. In the dream, she became aware she was only wearing high heels with a purse on her shoulder. Otherwise, she was completely naked. People were passing her on the busy sidewalk walking the other way. Jen was confused why they were not reacting to the fact that she was naked. As she continued on, her phone rang and she stopped in a doorway to answer it, still observing if she was being noticed. As her best friend spoke to her,
Jenn woke up from the dream.
As Jenn consciously wrote down her dream, she said, “I knew instantly that being nude in a dream symbolizes the attitude I experienced the day before, that I was being ‘open minded and honest’ in my expression.” What she was curious about was what part of her day or what experiences she had that this dream was highlighting?
Then she remembered having lunch with another manager of a different division within the company.
“In our conversation,” she said, “we discussed our progress with a project we were working on, each with other employees, each directing a different portion of our progress.” When they began to compare notes Jenn realized, “My friend was embellishing her accomplishments, kind of inflating her own value.” As she recalled this, Jenn then realized the value of her dream.
She went on to say, “It was tempting for me to respond to my friend and embellish my own efforts as well, just to look good too! But I decided to remain humble, and share what our business division had actually accomplished so far.”
Jenn’s dream was reminding her that her frame of mind and attitude during lunch that day was to take the high road and honor her Self. She was not concerned about boasting to her friend. The shoes she wore in the dream were a symbol of her protecting her spiritual understandings, those virtues she stands for, by being honest with others and her Self. The purse she held onto symbolized her presence of mind to resist temptation and intentionally hold onto what she values most, being honest.
As Jenn shared her dream in class, she had a large smile on her face because she recognized this dream was a self-acknowledgement. It was a reminder that she determines her own sense of self-worth, not others or false circumstances. This dream re-enforced her knowing that circumstances in life are just a stimulus or opportunities to evaluate what she values about her Self.
Next time you remember being naked in a dream, you will remember Jenn and the lesson she learned in her night school. –Kerry Keller, Nat’l. Dream Hotline® Coordinator 2017
