The Short Version: Dream analysis shines a light on the perspectives of those healing from trauma by inspiring heartfelt dialogues of their unconscious. Daniel Boscaljon and Angela Amias are on a mission to help individuals forge a path to personal growth and develop deeper and more profound connections through Alchemy of Love. When we talked with Daniel, he underscored the importance of understanding and addressing the challenges many couples face – and how they can use dream analysis to overcome them.

Nontraditional healing practices in relationship counseling and coaching have gained more acceptance over the years. This has rekindled interest in therapeutic techniques such as dream analysis, now informed with modern interpretations to better align with today’s relationship dynamics.

This is where Alchemy of Love comes in. Co-founders Daniel Boscaljon and Angela Amias have pioneered the integration of dream analysis into couples relationship therapy. These experts blend time-honored psychological techniques with fresh, insightful perspectives.

Delving beyond the surface of love and relationships, Daniel and Angela explore how trauma, subconscious desires, and internal struggles influence many romantic ties.

Daniel and Angela‘s work in this field advocates for a world where understanding and loving ourselves, in all our complexity, is the key to cultivating deeper, more meaningful connections.

The Alchemy of Love

Alchemy of Love was built on the compassionate vision of its founders, Daniel Boscaljon and Angela Amias. Their journey began at the intersection of therapy and executive coaching, and was fueled by a shared desire to make emotional and psychological support more accessible to everyone.

“She was realizing that she needed to say a lot of the same things to different people, but they all had some really shared components,” Daniel said. “As an executive coach, I was also recognizing a lot of overlap between the problems that people are having in their personal lives, in their relationships, and their work lives.”

Their vision was to design courses that offer an empathetic, empowering, and accessible pathway for healing and growth. By weaving personal stories into their work, they aimed not only to educate but also to foster a deep emotional connection with their audience and encourage everyone to embrace change and innovation.

Understanding Dream Analysis

Dream analysis — or dream interpretation — was held in high regard in ancient civilizations. It’s a practice that has sparked conversations about everything from personal struggles to divine inspiration. This journey through the subconscious has been celebrated in literature, philosophy, and medicine. 

Daniel and Angela draw from this rich heritage by using dream analysis to connect past experiences with current situations. By exploring these nightly narratives, couples can understand how past events and traumas influence their current actions, reactions, and relationships.

Dreams can point to fears from the past and desires for the future.

It’s a modern journey into the subconscious that helps couples link their past, present, and future selves, all through the messages hidden in their dreams.

“In terms of working with somebody, it’s more looking at the kind of larger situation,” Daniel said. “And some of the past things that are influencing the current situation in ways that you don’t necessarily recognize consciously. Dreams are able to tap into what we know, but don’t know that we know.”

Daniel further elaborates that analyzing dreams is like finding a labyrinth where each twist and turn reveals new insights and meanings. Initial interpretations often just scratch the surface, but can lead to a deeper dive into the psyche where true understanding resides.

In the Context of Relationships

Recurring symbols and themes in dreams also provide insights into interpersonal relationships. Daniel said common dream scenarios such as the frustration of an unattainable destination or being in a vehicle controlled by someone else, can reflect feelings of stagnation or lack of personal agency within a relationship. 

These motifs don’t just draw attention to potential concerns, they also help people understand relational patterns and behaviors more deeply.

The layered nature of dreams means they can offer various levels of meaning, revealing themselves over time and with reflection.

“Repeating patterns and dreams can also do that,” Daniel explains. “There are some clear themes that can develop. Most dreams have 5 or more layered meanings.”

While initial interpretations may provide immediate insights, staying open and curious about a dream’s evolving messages can lead to even deeper understandings and revelations about a person and their relationships.

Practical Tips for Dream Engagement

Daniel and Angela said they strongly believe that the ability to embrace our dreams can lead to deeper self-awareness and can forge stronger connections with ourselves and those around us.

Daniel said one way to significantly boost our ability to recall dreams upon waking up is by simply setting an intention before bed, such as saying “I will remember my dreams.” 

This simple yet powerful practice not only prepares our subconscious for vivid dream recall but also opens the door to deep personal insights, laying a foundation for exploring our innermost selves every night.

Dreams analysis probes into the covered parts of us.

This can be followed up by using a voice recorder app when we wake up to capture fleeting details of our dreams. This improves the chance of immediate recall and helps build an archive of dreams over time.

Recalling dreams is just the first step. Deciphering what they mean is another thing entirely. As human beings, we are programmed to want to know answers to burning questions — often not resting until we get them.

Dream analysis is like embarking on a deeply personal journey, akin to watching a movie that’s been thoughtfully created just for you and reflects your unique experiences and emotions.

It’s a process that encourages people to tread gently and with empathy, recognizing that looking for direct interpretations for specific symbols may not always lead to true understanding. 

Instead, it’s about individuals connecting with their feelings around the dream and discovering how these dreams relate to their recent life events, especially considering how they often mirror emotions and experiences from the past few days.

Who Benefits from Dream Analysis?

Those on a journey of healing from trauma are often seeking a deeper connection with themselves, their relationships, and their patterns of behavior. Dream analysis can be particularly helpful. 

Daniel tells us that every dream — no matter how frightening or unsettling — carries a potential for healing. Dream analysis offers individuals who have experienced trauma a unique space to explore aspects of their dreams outside of their day-to-day lives.

Recurring dreams, often heavy with traumatic memories, pose a specific challenge, while simultaneously offering a key to healing. By engaging with the evolving elements within these dreams, individuals initiate a dialogue with their unconscious minds. 

This can lead to transformative outcomes as couples begin to understand the messages their dreams convey. As dreams transform, they mirror an individual’s inner growth and progress toward healing.

Dream analysis is an empowering resource for those on a path to recovery. It provides insights that are vital for confronting past traumas and nurturing personal growth.

We all deserve to be happy — that’s part of why we do what we’re doing.
