If you want to have strange, interesting, revelatory dreams, try this:
As you are laying in bed, ready to go to sleep…
Imagine a little version of yourself dancing in your heart.
You can magnify this practice by feeling a radiance in the center of your chest and imagining that the little dancer is the fully radiant, joyous version of yourself.
Not only will this put you in a space to have vivid dreams, but it also helps to awaken your dharma self, the part of you that is radiant and in touch with your gifts.
If you try it, I'd love to hear how it goes. I often give this as a "homework" assignment in my longer workshops and the dream-stories are always a pleasure.
