Playful Dreams: How Play Helps Growth

Recently, I dreamed of my daughter playing basketball. She was just bouncing the ball, happily and I wanted to go play with her. It seemed I could and there was no obstacles yet I didn’t move.

What was this dream about?

Play is an important part of the change process. Too many times, when we start to do the deep internal work on big emotions such as fear or anger, if we are not careful we get stuck in the negatives.

Play gets us out again.

There is an inner child in all of us, eager to play ball, win a round of hide and seek or race around the front yard in a game of tag.

This dream is reminding me that when I stay light and playful great things happen.
