This approach sounds similar to mine. I tend not to work on my dreams so much as let them work on me. Sometimes they move me to action or to alter my behaviour. Recently my mind began to spin into a very fast and excitable state. I dreamed that I was careering out of control down a hill in my car and then I realised that I had my foot on the accelerator instead of the brake. I began to deliberately slow myself down in my daily life and was able to find my way back to balance. The other night I dreamed about making a pot in a particular shape, and I am now making that pot in this reality, an interplay and communication between different aspects of consciousness that fascinates me.
