Dealing with Resistance to Dream Work

 “I don’t think I’ve ever sat down to do my inner work but that I’ve had to make myself do it. I may have to make myself get up and leave it a little bit later, I get so interested. The resistance is always there. Don’t pay any notice. Just go do it!” -Robert Johnson*       I’ve kept a dream diary for forty-eight years, but most days I still find I have a great resistance to waking up and writing down the images that appear in my dreams each night. It occurred to me that my emotions go through…See More

Hi Mara,

Welcome Mara,

I'm curious as to what the other field of psychology might be that is your MA work. Does it correspond with Jungian work or are you stretching out into another field/adding another field of psychology? I think you will find the various blogs, forums, and groups interesting and hope you will be posting to them in the near future. Again, welcome.

Ed
