Ask Questions Before Sleeping To Receive Dream Answers

If you don’t know what your weird and wacky dreams mean, I have an extremely helpful magic trick for you! It’s as simple as asking a question…

Before you go to bed, write in your dream journal (or ask in your mind) a question that you’d like an answer to. Then, after you wake up in the morning and remember your dream, look at the dream as if it’s the answer to your question.

You see, dreams can appear to be pretty random. Most often, they don’t make much sense. The more you record your dreams and connect the dots, the more you’ll understand your subconscious mind’s language. But sometimes dreams need context in order to understand. By asking a question as you’re falling asleep, your dream has context.

I’ll share my example so it’s easier to understand and hopefully you can receive some dream answers as well!

Last night, as I was falling asleep, I was asking my dreams, “What do I need to do in order to feel more motivated and have more energy?”

My dream this morning was receiving a grocery list and I had to go to Trader Joe’s to pick up all of the ingredients. I couldn’t find anything, so I asked a store employee to help me find the items on my list. There were cheese balls (huh? 😂), and when the employee took me to the shelf, it was empty. The next item was some kind of pepper-medley and there was a fridge full of them. The next item on the list were donut bagels with frosting and they were nowhere to be found. Then the employee led me to a big display of different salads and saw my friend Jennifer (who happened to be a nutritionist.)

I woke up and I heard the message loud and clear. Obviously, my subconscious mind is telling me to be more mindful of what I’m eating. The employee was my subconscious mind, and seeing Jennifer was my signal to pay attention to my nutrition. To be honest, the past few weeks, I have been eating very poorly, so this isn’t a surprise at all. So I’ll take this message in my waking life and create a grocery list with healthy food and not order as much food from Grab. Even while writing this, I can feel that this is exactly what I need to do.

Sometimes, dreams only make sense when they have context. Questions give them context, so use your dreams as your own personal oracle. ✨


“The Gift of Nightmares” with That Witch Podcast

That Witch School Membership


We can ask for a dream of guidance on any issue that is facing us, and when we’re lucky the dream can take us out of the boxes of the everyday mind’s approach to that theme.



Last week was so dreamy!! I had the honor of giving a Dreamwork workshop for my friend Dani in her That Witch School membership. It was so fun to share so many fun topics on dreamwork and help others discover the power of their dreams. I was also a guest on Dani’s podcast where we dived deeeeeep into the gift of nightmares. I shared my learnings and experiences with nightmares – you would never think this, but nightmares are actually GOOD to have! I know, it sounds crazy, but it’s true. If you ever have nightmares or recurring dreams, I highly recommend you listen to the episode, it may improve your sleep and your life. 😍

Also, another dream come true: Dream Life Connection is an officially registered business! DLC is an LLC and I’m a CEO. WHOA. 😂 It feels so good and I’m so happy to make my business more real in the 3D world. It’s been a meandering, sometimes slow, journey – but I’m enjoying every step of it. Thank you so much for being a part of this journey!!!!! 💙
