Wickedly Smart Women

Dec 30, 2020

Dr. Alfred Adler famously said that the dream gives rise to an emotion that helps propel you toward the goal. But how do you learn to recognize what your dreams are telling you? And how can you leverage that information to move your life forward?

Layne Dalfen is the Founder of The Dream Interpretation Center, a platform designed to help people understand and take action on their dreams. A dream analyst with more than two decades of experience, Layne is a lecturer at Concordia University in Montreal, and she writes a blog called Understanding Dreams for Psychology Today. Layne is also the author of the two-book set Have a Great Dream: Decoding Your Dreams to Discover Your Full Potential.

On this episode of Wickedly Smart Women, Layne joins Anjel to explain how our dreams help us problem-solve and move our lives forward—if we take the time to figure out what they mean. She walks us through the six points of entry for identifying what triggered a particular dream, describing why no one can tell you what your dream is about but YOU. Listen in for Layne’s insight on tapping into your unconscious mind and learn how to leverage dream work to make better business decisions and step into your full potential!
