Despite the evidence that dreams are meaningful and important, there’s a myth that they aren’t worth bothering to remember and understand. Let’s bust that myth!
The Dreams That Shape Us podcast offers story after story of how dreams change lives, offer insights, and direct us on our path to vitality and meaning.
Co-hosted by me (J.M. DeBord) and my partner in the dream Steven Ernenwein. We find and interview people with astounding stories about dreams that shaped who they are and impacted them in amazing ways. Steve composes custom music for the podcast, and we both offer our perspectives on dreams and how to understand and benefit from them.
In Episode 1 we interview Harper, who was diagnosed with a heart condition that limited what he could do physically. This adventurous, active young man lived in fear that he could harm himself or worse with too much activity. So he retreated indoors and became a couch potato. He sunk into depression. Then he began having dreams of seeing through the eyes of a character from an anime show, The K Project — a show he’d neither seen nor heard of. He then watched the show and discovered that his dreams mirrored its content, sometimes exactly: characters, setting, story lines, dialogue.
Message: he could have his old life back. He just had to try. It changed him in numerous ways.
We’re now up to Episode 9, each one offering new ways of understanding dreams and how they shape our lives. Listen now!
