Hosts Billie Ortiz and Dr. Royce Fitts and producer, Viviana Guzman, interview Brenda Ferrimani.
Brenda shares with us her dream inspired artwork and the evolution of her work. Through the years, dream images have captivated her imagination and provided an unending source of inspiration for her paintings. It is her desire to express the mystery of the psyche’s inner world and the power of dreams to impact and change our lives.
Royce, Billie and Viviana discuss dreams of our loved ones who have passed on.
Visitation dreams are sometimes a welcome respite from the longing we feel to re-connect with our loved one who has died. Whether we believe these dreams are real, from the divine, or something straight out of science-fiction – a visit from the afterlife can be healing to our soul. However, are there other layers of the dream to explore? For instance, the question to always ask is “why this dream now?” Also, what parts of the dreamer’s health and wholeness are reflected/projected in the personality/life history of the loved one who appears in the dream?
We also discuss the deep grief and profound loss of our pets and what it might mean when they appear in our dreams as well.
