Making friends with dream characters
PostPosted: Mon 26 Jun, 2017  Reply with quote

Looking back through my dream journal, I see a lot of dreams where I'm sure the dream character was friendly, but nothing really happened (good or bad) I think if I'd approached them, I could have made the dream more positive.

This isn't about turning hostile dream characters/monsters into friendly ones, more about engaging ones that already seem friendly.

Some ideas tbat come to mind:
- greeting the dc, saying hi or giving them a wave
- giving them a hug
- if they seem to have some kind of problem, offering to help
- inviting them out to an event of some kind
- giving them a present (would make story sense if the premise is you already know them fairly well)
How some things get interpreted might depend a bit on the gender/sexual orientation of the dreamer and the DC.

Are there any obvious things to do that I've missed? What differences are there in how you approach male vs female dream characters?

(P.S. I realise this could verge on being dating advice... I'm specifically talking about dream characters, who can be a bit different from real life).

I like the idea of offering to help them or acting under the premise that you are already good friends. The former in particular seems like it could lead to an adventure.

I'd very much like to bring out more of my DCs' potential. I tend to mostly get ones that are dumb and vacant.. perhaps due to my own expectations.

I've also been interested for some time, and have been unsuccessful in, cultivating a friendship so that I have a kind of recurring dream side-kick.

dreamsign can have positive or negative moods. I once asked a random person in a dream if he culd remind me that I dream the next time I see him, but he just said: "No ask someone else"???

I had one recently where a guy was berating me for the hurt I was causing by a certain behavior I have. I was about to attack him but then decided to converse. That led to me feeling friendship towards him and I patted him on the back as we walked together. This was about me realizing he was right and I was wrong. I admitted my mistake. Kind of a twist on the 'talk to them and they'll become friendly' but in this case I dropped my defensive anger and we both became friends.
