Live. Love. Engage. Podcast: Inspiration | Spiritual Awakening | Happiness | Success | Life


Gloria Grace Rand
If you think your nightly dreams are meaningless, think again. Dream analyst Megan Mary joins us to explain how interpreting your dreams can lead to profound clarity and personal growth. Stay tuned.

I am Gloria Grace Rand, founder of the Love Method and author of the number one Amazon bestseller Live, Love, Engage, how to stop doubting yourself and start being yourself. In this podcast, we share practical advice from a spiritual perspective on how to live fully, love deeply, and engage authentically so you can create a life and business with more impact, influence, and income. Welcome to live, love, engage.

Gloria Grace Rand
Namaste. This show today is going to be, I feel really, really great. It is all about dreams and how we can make use of them better in our lives. And I just really excited to have our guest. But before I bring her on first, I just want to introduce myself, especially if you are new here. So I am Gloria Grace, and I help female entrepreneurs release negative thought patterns like self doubt so you can grow a business that aligns with your soul’s purpose.

Gloria Grace Rand
And today’s guest is very much in alignment with that as well. Her name is Megan Mary, and she is a dream worker, intuitive, and author who specializes in the analysis of women’s dreams to promote transformative personal growth and enlightenment. And she has founded the Women’s Dream Enlightenment podcast to help women with that as well as well as some other programs that she does, which I think she’ll be talking about today. And she’s just got a very interesting story to tell. And without further ado, I’m going to bring her on right now. Welcome to live love, engage, Megan.

Megan Mary
Thank you, Grace. It’s a pleasure to be here.

Gloria Grace Rand
Well, I’m really so intrigued by what you are going to be sharing with our listeners and viewers today because I have some interesting dreams sometimes, and so I’m curious to know more about that. But before we really delve into, you know, what you do, I want, I love asking our guests a little bit more about how you got to be where you are today. What was the journey that kind of brought you into? Yeah, helping women with understanding their dreams, I guess.

Megan Mary
Yes. So I was always fascinated by dreams growing up, and I think that I did look into it a little bit as a teenager and as a college age, looked into dream dictionaries and things like that, started reading books about dreams, trying to figure out what they meant, and knew that what I was getting was not quite everything that was out there to know. And so I think that I let them go a little bit in my thirties and just sort of stopped listening to them.

Megan Mary
And then midway in my life, I ended up really having a lot of medical issues that caused me to decide that I needed to do some real mind body spirit healing, not just the body healing part. And I was doing a lot of meditation and I was asking for that spiritual guidance. And dreams came back in as one of those portals of spiritual intelligence, one of those ways that I really was able to start to receive information that I was seeking.

Megan Mary
And that really became for me, almost an emphatic calling at that time to spread that word and to be the catalyst for other women to use their dreams for their own empowerment.

Gloria Grace Rand
Very cool. I’m like, I’ve got so many questions I want to ask. Things are going through my head. And I know one of the things, even when I was introducing this, when I was writing the post for it today, was doing a little research about dreams. And even just what people, what Research has been done.

Gloria Grace Rand
About dreams and misconceptions that people have about dreams. Before we maybe get into all of this, what exactly do you do with clients? How do you help them understand their dreams? Because dreams seem like a personal type of thing. What do you do and how do you analyze them, I guess?

Megan Mary
I guess the way that I work with dreams is very much like the way a transformational life coach would work with you in terms of using dreams as a doorway to your subconscious and using the stories that come through your dreams to help you better understand yourself. So whatever your preconceptions are, your blockages, whatever you have brought into this world, your behavior patterns, and also your hopes and dreams, your aspirations, your talents, all of those things are reflected in your dreams.

Megan Mary
And when you’re able to connect with them and understand your dream language, then you’re actually able to connect with your higher self, to connect with your greater purpose, to understand why you’re here and how things could be different in your trajectory in your life. So it’s very much a self development methodology as much as it also is a creativity catalyst and a modality for healing.

Gloria Grace Rand
And what, something just occurred to me because I know, I think I’ve read this or maybe talked to other people. There will be, there’s like websites online where they say, you know, oh, figure out your dreams. You know, here’s the symbolism of, like, water. Water means something. You know, if you experience this or if you’re on an airplane, it means something like this. Do you find there’s any credence to that? Or is it really more unique to each person?

Megan Mary
I feel that it is very unique to each dreamer. And I have a blog post where I talk about breaking up with your dream dictionary. Because I really feel that when we look to the dream dictionary, we’re getting a generic meaning that is not coming from our subconscious. It may be a culturally held generic meaning. It may be a historic or a mythological meaning, but it is not necessarily the meaning for us, because our dreams are comprised of everything we’ve ever experienced, and our experience is unique to each and every one of us.

Megan Mary
So I put in high esteem the dreamer’s experience and the dreamer’s associations. So rather than put the meaning on the dream, I work with the dreamer to pull out their own personal subconscious associations so that they can start to decode their own dream language and understand that that water or that airplane or whatever it might be for them is completely different, even between two people.

Gloria Grace Rand
I’m thinking now as well. Then, do you rely on your own intuition, or is it sort of in, I guess maybe in conversation with a client then, and helping them to kind of figure out, as you say, that it is unique to each person? What do you think about that? Is it a little bit of both?

Megan Mary
Yes, it is both, because I am an intuitive, and so we’re dealing with something that is a little otherworldly here. So dreams are definitely a different beyond space and time. They’re not in this 3d reality. And so it’s difficult, even for people who are very skilled at this, to bring those elements of the dream into this level of consciousness. And that’s because of the alteration in brainwave states that happen from when we’re sleeping to when we’re awake.

Megan Mary
And so it’s, it’s both because I’m asking a series of questions and I’m discussing the dream content with the dreamer, but I’m also listening and watching and feeling and all those other senses that are beyond our five regular senses to really understand what else is going on energetically in the dream.

Gloria Grace Rand
Well, what do you say to people who say that I can never remember my dreams or I don’t even dream? Do you ever run into that with someone?

Megan Mary
Yes. And when I first started, I was actually surprised how often I ran into that, because I have extremely high dream recall. I recall dreams, probably every night and sometimes multiple or all of them. And so I was really surprised at the beginning that people would say that, but then I remembered that there was a period during which I was not remembering them. And over my research, I’ve discovered that there’s different ways that can happen. And sometimes we do subconsciously turn off our dream recall because we are not ready to receive the information that’s coming through in the dream.

Megan Mary
And so we choose not to listen. And the less we listen, the quieter that inner voice gets.

Gloria Grace Rand
That makes so much sense. That really does, because I can, you know, just, I can see that. Because, you know, sometimes we just. We don’t want to. We don’t want to hear stuff and that we know that we probably should be paying attention to. When people come to you for help. What are they usually?

Gloria Grace Rand
What are they looking for? Are they just looking for guidance in a particular area? Do you find that there’s maybe some common themes?

Megan Mary
Yes, there definitely are different themes. Such as that they’re just at a crossroads, right? They’re experiencing a major shift in their life. Maybe they’re changing their relationships or they’re changing their career, or they’re changing their whole life where they’re living, or how they’re perceiving of themselves, and they’re ready to take that next step, but they’re not sure what direction that step is in.

Megan Mary
Also, people come to me with different nightmares or recurring dreams that they’ve had or are having that they really want to get to the bottom of. They understand that there’s something trying to be communicated or they’re distraught by their presence. And they really would like them to go away and would like to know how that can happen. And so that’s another reason also basically, creativity is one of those other reasons, because people don’t seem to realize that dreams can be such a source of creativity. So, so many famous artists and writers and inventors throughout history have used the different brainwave states and the dream state as inspiration to come up with fabulous, unique ideas and inventions. And so people that are in that space recognize that and want to know how to harness that. Or when they find out that that’s a possibility, they want to know how that’s possible.

Megan Mary
And then also there’s the healing aspect, of course. And there’s so many ways that dreams can be our own self-healing, the ultimate self-care.

Gloria Grace Rand
Can you share an example of that?

Megan Mary
If you have a recurring dream, for example, and it’s something that might, as they do, change over the course of time. But there’s always this recurring theme. There’s always a certain scenario that plays out, even though the rest of it might be different many times this is because there’s a message in that recurring theme that you’re not consciously acknowledging. And so your subconscious keeps trying to rearrange the puzzle pieces and give it to you in a different story to see if maybe you’ll get it this time.

Megan Mary
And so that’s where we can look at the patterns and we can try to decode. Okay, what is that recurring theme? What is that recurring message, and how can we take action on that in our waking life so that this dream dissipates? Because we receive the message and we’re transforming it into real action in our lives.

Gloria Grace Rand
And you mentioned earlier, you said that sometimes people come to you for, because they’re having nightmares or they’re having something that’s, let’s say, stressing them out at night, when they’re waking up stressed instead of refreshed after a good night’s sleep. How can dreams help, or the work that you’re doing, how can you help someone be able to do that? To overcome that?

Megan Mary
Yes, because similar to recurring dreams, nightmares are really just the peak of that emotional context. So dreams at their core are very emotional because of the way our brain processes dreams. And when we’re asleep, our logical brain is turned off, but our emotional portion of our processing brain is in full activation as if we were awake. And so that’s why we perceive them on an emotional basis like they are really happening, and nightmares are the full-blown version of that.

Megan Mary
And so when we have a nightmare, it very much is something that is waving a red flag. It’s calling its attention to something that really needs to be brought to the surface that we want to either heal or address or transform into something else. And so there’s opportunities, especially through lucid dreaming techniques, to transform the storyline of a nightmare. And so you can use visualization in your waking state to reenter that scenario of the nightmare, but create an alternate ending of your choosing, kind of like a choose your own adventure book.

Megan Mary
And that suggestion to your subconscious in itself can be the catalyst for that healing.

Gloria Grace Rand
Wow, that’s really cool. I didn’t know there’s so many different ways to be able to look at dreams. And I know I was going to ask you this earlier because when you were talking, but I got sidetracked. So I’m going to ask you now because I know this is something that I have, I don’t want to say struggled with, but I’ve, you know, I want to be able to remember some of my dreams, but I don’t, don’t always, unless it’s like something that’s really vivid when I wake up in the morning or that was just something that was very, like, really curious.

Gloria Grace Rand
And so it’s like, okay, I’ll write that one down. So if someone is, you know, listening to this today and they want to like to be able to, you know, know more about my dreams. What do you recommend to someone to do so?

Megan Mary
Start keeping a dream journal. And at first, it might just be a journal. That’s always a good thing. And start keeping the habit of journaling. Then keep it by your bed so that when you, if you do wake up in the middle of the night or when you wake up in the morning, you’ll have a chance to record it because you’re going to forget 50% of your dream within the first five minutes. So don’t expect that you’re going to remember it and try to get into the habit of recording it.

Megan Mary
Before you even do that, though, what I usually suggest to people is to create a habit of pausing so when you first wake up, before you get up, before you reach for your phone, before you start thinking about your day, be still almost as if a meditative state, and think backwards to where you just were, who you were just talking to, what you were just doing. Give yourself a moment and create that habit of reflecting upon the dream. Because when you avert your attention from what is about to happen in your day to what just happened and you start to create a habit of that, you will start to be able to remember more and more of the dream.

Gloria Grace Rand
Very cool. Yeah, I do have a journal by my bed and I do try to do that, but some days are better than others. But I guess where I’m, where I’m in the mood to do it and, you know, other times it’s just like, I just want to get on with my day. I’m not going to worry about it. But, yeah, it’s.

Gloria Grace Rand
Do you think it’s a, and this, I know I was starting to do this for a little while, especially because I would, I kind of go through runs where I would, you know, maybe remember them for a little while and then not. Do you recommend that someone like, you know, put today’s date on it or maybe do that afterwards? Probably not do the date right at the beginning because then you’re going to forget the dream. But, but is it a good idea to kind of see, does that help you then in working with a client?

Megan Mary
Definitely. It’s, it’s, it’s good for your own purposes to record the date when you can. And I also like to encourage people to record other things as well. So part of my method is that I encourage people to record their mood because it’s very important to know the mood that you experienced during the dream, but also the mood that you went to sleep in as well as how you felt when you woke up. So all of those things can give us information about the context of the dream.

Megan Mary
And for women, our estrogen and our hormone levels really can affect our dream recall. So I find it interesting to track that as well. As well as the moon phases, there’s a lot of different things that you can layer on to your dream journal. The more you get into it and the more that you start writing down the details.

Gloria Grace Rand
Well, that is very cool to know. Yeah. I didn’t even think about that. But it does make sense because I’ve been in even bookstores and I’ve seen moon journals specifically that you can track how you feel during different phases of the moon because we are affected by that. But I like the idea of being able to put it all together. I think that really helps you put. Well, you’re kind of being your own detective, I guess, you know, kind of putting all these different clues together. Right.

Megan Mary
Yes. I really like that as a mystery author. I really like that.

Gloria Grace Rand
Yeah. Well, good segue. Very good. Yeah, I want to, I did want to ask you a little bit about that because of the many things that you do, you know, that I’ve mentioned during our, the intro today that one of the things you’ve done is you’re delving into fiction writing. So can you share with our audience a little bit about, because I think you’ve got a book coming out this fall, so. Yes. Share a little bit of what it is and also what prompted you to start writing.

Megan Mary
Yes. So, of course, a dream was how I was inspired and where it started and started ten years ago, actually. And it started as quite a different story than it turned out to be when I picked it up again last year. But the book is called the dream haunters, a metaphysical mystery of magic, and it is coming out in October 2024. And it is a very wonderful story that follows a young woman’s search of meaning. She really is discovering herself while she is trying to unravel the mystery of her missing eccentric aunt.

Megan Mary
And she has the help of spirit cats and other guides. And it’s all set at Halloween, which is why the book is not coming out until October. And it’s very much a spiritual and a metaphysical story as it is a mystery.

Gloria Grace Rand
Well, that sounds very cool. And I presume you’ll have it up for sale on all the major platforms where people can find books and probably on your website, I would imagine, as well.

Megan Mary
Yes. As soon as the leaves start to fall, it’ll be a man.

Gloria Grace Rand
Very good. Very good. Yeah. I think I’m going to ask you this. What is a commonly held belief about dreams that you passionately disagree with?

Megan Mary
Yes.That would be that they don’t mean anything and that they should be ignored, that perhaps they’re just regurgitations of our day. Maybe that they’re just nonsensical or things to be embarrassed about or to hide or to feel ashamed about sharing. All of those things are common misconceptions that I think keep us from our inner truth, because our intuition really lies latent in those puzzles from our subconscious.

Megan Mary
And we need to cultivate a culture of dream appreciation, where it’s part of our societal knowledge, that it’s part of our self-wisdom, and then it’s something that we value as a tool for personal growth as opposed to dismissing it.

Gloria Grace Rand
Why do you think it has been dismissed? And I’m kind of. I’m almost wondering if maybe it’s because of, you know, and this might be, you know, again, just culture. But, you know, Sigmund Freud was always about, you know, like, dreams and things, and I wonder if that wound up actually turning people off of it. Do you have any theories on why people kind of downplay them?

Megan Mary
I think that there was a lot of value in the initial forefathers and especially the Jungian perspective, because he really was trying to see the symbology in dreams, and he really was the one who kind of came up with the idea of synchronicities. So I feel that that’s valuable, but I think that aside from that portion of society where it’s acknowledged in psychoanalytic practice, that it’s not part of our daily practice. And there is actually a psychoanalyst that was one of the founding members of the International Association for the Study of Dreams. And he called himself a recovering psychoanalyst because he was the one who coined the term dream appreciation.

Megan Mary
And he really felt, Montague Ullman, what’s his name, that dreams really should be part of our culture in the way that they are in some other countries, but not in western culture. So we’re not taught it in school. We’re not taught it by our parents or in our homes. We’re not really taught what to do with them. And so we start to internalize and shove it down and feel embarrassed about it and start to ignore them.

Gloria Grace Rand
Yeah. And that’s a shame, too, because, as you say, I do think that there’s a lot of wisdom there that we can gain because our, our brains aren’t shutting off at night just because we go to sleep. There’s a lot of stuff going on there. And why not use that information and try to figure out how it can help you in your daily life? Because, as they say, some of mine are very interesting, and I will have. I have noticed, like, over the years that they’re.

Gloria Grace Rand
I wish I’d known you sooner because I would have. I could have been able to call you and say, hey, help me explain this, because I. I know for a while I had ones where I would be actually driving, driving somewhere, and then suddenly, like, the road was all flooded out. So I had variations of that a few times, especially, like, I live in Florida, so sometimes it would be driving, like, I don’t know, in the Keys or on Miami Beach or something. And suddenly, you know, it’s like the waves have covered the road. And yet I’m still. We’re still getting through it eventually. But it’s interesting that you have things like that. And I wasn’t really recording them at the time, but I just know that they’ve still sort of, you know, I still do remember that little bit of it.

Megan Mary
And there’s two good things there. One is that you are driving because in so many dreams, people will have forgotten their keys. They can’t find their car. They get in the car, but they can’t start it or it’s running, but they can’t control the steering wheel, all of those things. So you being in the driver’s seat and actually controlling the car is actually a good sign. And also the fact that you say you always get through it, that’s also a good sign.

Gloria Grace Rand
That’s good to know. Yeah, that’s true. Yeah. I don’t remember ever, like, you know, just floating away somewhere or just. Or being submerged. So. So that’s good. Is there anything else that I should have asked you about in regards to this, that we haven’t brought up? Anything else in particular?

Megan Mary
I want to talk about the concept of dream empowerment a little bit more because I work with women to try to empower them, but in the sense that I feel that authenticity is really one of the keys to raising our vibration and to coming into alignment with our higher purpose. And so when I speak about dream empowerment, one of the three pillars that I’m talking about is really allowing women to connect with their authentic self. And the authentic self is what is expressed in the dream stories because your subconscious knows how you really feel about things, what you’ve really experienced, but your waking mind is trying to rationalize and trying to close off certain parts and trying to protect you and trying to explain away things.

Megan Mary
And so it’s important to connect with your authentic self, because when you do, that’s when you start to come into that alignment. And when we come into that alignment, that’s how we open up the gates of abundance. And that’s not just financial abundance. That can be wealth and health and an understanding of a way of living that is more of higher intelligence and of higher consciousness and of higher understanding.

Gloria Grace Rand
Yeah. And that’s so important. And I resonate with that 100% because it’s definitely something that I do and helping my clients as well, just come about it from a different vantage point because we all have different tools in our metaphysical toolbox that we can use. correct. So I love that. I’m going to throw a curveball question at you because I like to ask my guests this. So what are you curious about right now?

Megan Mary
I’m curious about parapsychology and really psi science in terms of psi dream science. That’s something that’s piqued my interest. I feel that dreams are not just, like I said, a regurgitation of the our day. I feel that they are an interdimensional portal. And so the concept of time travel and alternative realities and past lives and all those kind of things has always really fascinated me. And so I’d like to see that intersection of quantum physics and dream science and see where that can lead.

Gloria Grace Rand
I love that because I was almost going to ask you about that because I’ve heard that as well, is that sometimes that our dreams could be like another, we’re living in a different dimension or something. It’s experiencing life in another dimension. So that’s cool. I might have to do some research on that myself because I’m very fascinated with quantum science, quantum mechanics, quantum energy, all of anything having to do with that, because we’re just so barely scratching the surface at the amazing things that are possible that we’re just starting to learn about. So it’s very cool.

Megan Mary
Yes. I couldn’t agree more.

Gloria Grace Rand
Well, I want to also give you an opportunity to share with our audience how they can get in touch with you because I’m sure that people have been very interested in what you have to say and going, okay, I need Megan’s help to figure out my dreams. So what’s the best place for people to get in touch with you?

Megan Mary
Yes. So you can find And on there, you’ll find my online dream courses, how you can work with me and you can also find me on all different socials. I’m very active on YouTube and Twitter. I’m also on TikTok a little bit and Pinterest. So check me out there as well and sign up for my newsletter where you’ll get a free Dream Mirror journal template which will get you started using my method and recording your dreams.

Megan Mary
And eventually, after I publish my novel, I will probably release a companion dream journal as well.

Gloria Grace Rand
Very cool. All right, well, be sure and watch for that. And I look forward to, yeah, look forward to the novel because I love reading fiction that has sort of a spiritual bent to it and things like that. So I will definitely have to pick up your book once it comes out because it sounds very cool and it’s got cats in it. And I’m a cat fan, so, you know. Yes. There we go. Well, this has been wonderful, and it’s gone by really fast. And any last words? I’ll give you one more chance to have any last piece of advice or for anyone wanting to know more about their dreams.

Megan Mary
listen to your dreams. Give yourself a chance to start opening that door, because when you do, the more you listen, the louder that voice gets.

Gloria Grace Rand
