The 12 Steps According to Dream Theater

The 12 Steps According to Dream Theater:

What a great way to begin this blog on 12 Step Work and Dreams! Here is an article that " features the fifth and final installment of a series of songs that chronicle a personal recovery experience through working the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous."
Using song to help share the benefits of working a 12 step program is a great way to reach people who might otherwise not get it. I love this! In addition, the songs are rich with symbols that would also apply to your dreams.
Each step represented in the five song titles carries the “Re” theme from Recovery throughout. They are 1) The Glass Prison: I. Reflection / II. Restoration / III. Revelation, (from Six Degrees…), 2) This Dying Soul: IV. Reflections of Reality (Revisited) / V. Release, (from Train of Thought), 3) The Root of All Evil: VI. Ready / VII. Remove, (from Octavarium), 4) Repentance: VIII. Regret / IX. Restitution, (from Systematic Chaos), 5) The Shattered Fortress: X. Restraint / XI. Receive / XII. Responsible (from Black Clouds…).
This is a band worth hearing and comparing to the work you do in dreams.
