What is a Dream Oracle?

It’s someone who channels Spirit while asleep and in the Dream World on behalf of others and the collective to receive messages, insight and guidance around specific questions.
Essentially, it’s someone who can dream on behalf of others. A Dream Oracle can also navigate the dimensions of Dream World to connect with, support, heal and guide other beings to initiate transformation, healing and deeper alignment to ones Higher Self.

Meet your co-host Holly Emmerson

She is a Dream Oracle. She has a unique ability to channel Spirit and The Universe while asleep in the Dream World.

In the dimensions of the Dream World, she energetically and subconsciously work with her clients to support them in transforming and awakening to deeper conscious alignment to their Higher Selves.
Through dreams, she also receives guidance and messages to support clients in their transformation and healing process in this waking dream.

Holly is also the Founder of Dream Oracle School where she teaches her students how to use dreams as a tool for spiritual awakening, learn their personal dream language and perhaps unlock their own unique abilities as a dreamer.
She is also the host of The Dream Collective Podcast.

This beach gets its names from the unique secondary volcanic phenomena that occurs here. The seabed is characterised by ‘fumaroles’, i.e., emissions of sulphurous gas from the earth’s crust. This makes the water temperature warmer and the bathing experience more relaxing and jacuzzi-like.
