A technique developed by Joe H. Slate at Athens (Alabama) State University for "true dreaming," it specifies a certain goal and then focuses the dream experience upon it. Beyond Dreaming not only promotes psychic dreaming, it activates the subconscious resources required for successful achievement of your stated goals. Beyond Dreaming generates a powerful anticipation of success so essential to the achievement of both personal and career goals. Beyond that, the dream can literally unleash the subconscious resources required for your complete success.
Step 1. Formulate your goal and record it in your dream journal. Remind yourself that your dreams are sources not only of psychic enlightenment related to your stated goals; they can connect you to the subconscious sources of power required for successful goal achievement.
Step 2. During the drowsy state preceding sleep, review your goal which can range from very general to highly specific. Remind yourself that your dreams will become channels for information and power required to achieve your goal and that upon awakening, you will have full recall of the dream experience.
Step 3. As your dreams unfold, flow effortlessly with them while intervening as needed to focus them on you stated goal.
Step 4. Upon awakening, record your dream experiences in your dream journal.
Step 5. Take time to reflect on your dreams and their relevance to your stated goals while keeping in mind that dream messages are often symbolic in nature.
