WHY ARE DREAMS SO CRITICAL?
What’s the big deal? Why are dreams so important? Rather than tell you, I’ll show you something that completely altered my whole life, because it changed how I felt about myself.
As a kid, I felt like a cringing wimp – both in and out of my dreams. If anyone even looked at me askance or said a critical word, I’d put on a brave front, but in reality, I felt like I was dying a thousand painful deaths inside. You’ll see how that changes….
I was about 9 when a repetitive dream started: a huge black bear would burst out of the bushes as I climbed up the hill. It chased me – screaming my head off – all the way up the hill, only stopping when it reached the edge of our lawn.
I had that dream over and over until I was 14 years old. Sometimes the bear would just chase me up the hill; others we dashed through a long narrow rose trellis shaped like an arched tunnel. A thick growth of bright red roses with long thorns hung down and seemed to reach out to scratch me as I sprinted through.
I don’t know how I was fast enough to beat that bear every time, but I did, even when I had one of those running-but-going-nowhere versions.
