Having a flow conversation with a symbol to evoke its conscious meaning.

This is how you can do it:

•  After Objectifying your dream, pick the symbol or figure with the most energy, positive or negative,
•  Make about five key questions to ask in your dialogue using the dream’s imagery and issues
•  In a quiet place, visualize your dream figure and ask a key question of it, writing down quickly whatever comes into your head
•  Keep asking questions and give short responses until the flow stops or resolution occurs
•  List what you have learned from your dialogue
