Dream-Maker: The dream-maker is a comprehensive identity or entity (a larger Self) who creates dreams, incorporating not only the dreamer’s personal associations and unconscious ideas, but also drawing upon a collective realm of metaphor, imagery, knowledge, and points of reference. According to C.G. Jung, the dream-maker is often symbolized within the dream as an image of God. In other words, in the world of the dream, the dream-maker is the creator, and manifests as images of creativity and profundity, such as the sun, a great tree, a wise old woman or man, etc. Theologically speaking, the dream-maker must be greater than the dream, since the creator must be greater than that which is created. Additionally, the dream-maker must be greater than the dreamer, since the dream can extend beyond what the dreamer knows.

“Nothing within the great dream of life is without meaning—or without a voice, should it choose to speak, and we deign to listen.”
