The Three Dreams From Listeners We Analyzed in This Session
Female, 45, artist – journalist
Dream: I am in session with my female psychologist. I am telling her something and she does not know the answer or is unsure of it. So she gets out her black cell phone and makes a call, to a mentor or superior I assume. The next thing we are standing on a spiral stairs, my psychologist is one or two steps higher than me, we are both around the middle. On top of the stairs there is a black woman, probably in her 60s, very smartly dressed in black. She seems serious but not stern, like someone with natural authority / gravitas. She has a black cell phone and I gather that she is the person my therapist called. She says (the answer is) blue bird (blue jay?). Then I look down my hands and I see I am holding a blue bird in them.
Context: I'm not in therapy so I have no therapist. My older children (18, 20) have left home and we have had a few losses in our lives. I am married and feel like my life has been in transition for the past five years.
Feelings: it wasn't emotionally charged. Mostly surprise to see the bird in my hands.
Needs explaining: I'm not in therapy now (never did Jungian therapy). I do love Marion Woodman's work and am re reading The Pregnant Virgin
Female, 54, varied jobs
Dream: I was hiking in the mountain up and down a valley and kept running into bears. I made it back to my cabin and the bears were in my yard, and in my house. They were in my daughters room, and she was small. I approached to see what might have happened, for the bear seemed to be sitting with her in a play area.....then I awoke.
Context: There bears were protective mothers, or they consumed her....the dream repeated itself. My daughter is a grown woman. I think I was reviewing my situation raising her as a single mom,

Rank #15: #661 Learning Self-Worth and Other Survival Skills with Inspirational Coach Anne Boudreau
Anne’s desire to focus on the topic of self-worth is derived from her lifelong passion to address the array of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual issues that impede a person’s ability to feel fulfilled and enjoy inner peace. As she learned during her own challenging early years, the root cause of negativity, fear, anger, hatred, violence, bullying, and bigotry is low self-worth.
After numerous years of research, Anne developed a unique niche in coaching others to build self-worth that is predicated on neuroplasticity, changing one’s brain through learning new thoughtsand behavior. Her comprehensive knowledge of the science of neuroplasticity has been instrumental to mentoring and teaching sustainable self-change. Through creating new neural pathways in the brain, anyone at any age or stage of life, can transform themselves to live with healthy self-worth and live the life they have dreamed.
