Exercises To Do On Your Own
by Al Link and Pala Copeland


Not only can you remember your dreams and interpret their meaning, but you can also influence dreams with your intention through conscious dreaming. This exercise focuses on the first part of conscious dreaming, setting a theme for your dreaming before you go to sleep. (The second part of conscious dreaming is to participate actively in the dream while the dream unfolds, but that is beyond the scope of this exercise.)

Time for Exercise: three minutes

Properties Required: pen and paper


  1. Choose a question you want answered, or an issue about which you want guidance.
  2. Write your choice on a piece of paper.
  3. Before you go to sleep, read your question.
  4. Place the paper under your pillow.
  5. Hold your question in your consciousness as you drift off to sleep.


If you wake in the night with insights, write them down immediately. Alternatively, write down any insights as soon as you wake up. Write them down even if they don’t seem to make any sense at the time. Allow what you have written and what you can remember to percolate through your consciousness over the next day or two. Often you will grasp exactly what needs to be done.
