That sounds in keeping with the dream.

Ok, this will sound weird, but it's something I do myself, and it may or may not be useful to you.

I listen to what the negative voice says, and putting aside the objective correctness of it, acknowledge that it is right now a subjective truth for me, or part of me. I try to keep a respectful, open, and interested stance. Because trying to sort out the truth of it just makes the opposing voices more strident in defense, at least in my case. Then I listen to what comes to mind after that and maintain the same stance. Sometimes, for me, once the negative stuff is accepted as at least subjective truth, sometimes a deeper level of truth comes out. Something that often surprises me. And if I stay open to it, every once in a while I'll reach the state where I hear a quiet voice that seems to speak wisdom more than truth. If that makes sense.

It may sound a bit weird or mystical or something. But it doesn't feel that way precisely. It feels more like I'm being a good therapist to myself.
