Quite simply, I recommend checking out this link as a useful resource guide to these trials and collectibles. I claim no credit to any of the ps3 trophies guide. The reason why Im referencing ps3 trophies is because its the same DLC but they've had it for weeks already. Video guides in that link as well.

For those that don't wish to look, I give the following tips from personal experience even though everything is probably explained more thoroughly in the above link (it has youtube videos also!).
At any point, if you fail a Reverie trial, just Restart the Last Checkpoint
13-1 Trial: Combat based Trial
You can't let Laura kill any enemies. This would be difficult except that there is only one room of enemies. Best solution is to go all out with Holy Water, Ultimate Light, Ultimate Shadow and even a Dark Crystal if you wanted to. You won't really need any items after this level anyways. Laura comes after the first wave of enemies, so wait until she shows up before you decide to item spam.
13-2 Trial: Platforming-ish Trial
1. The max speed is only 2 speed ups (thankfully). Two speed ups gets the blue cogs going and speeds the red ones up.

2. You auto-fail the trial if you pass the first buzzsaws without speeding it to the max so wait a second until both Y presses have gone through.

3. The first part of the course is the hard part. Once you get to the cog in the middle its much more simpler. The spot directly on top of the cog is a safe zone if you need a breather.

4. Be patient and you'll eventually get it. If you start getting frustrated, look away for about 30 seconds before retrying.

5. Its hard to give specific advise per section since different people play differently. If you're truly stumped, I suggest looking up a video on youtube.

6. Don't bother with the Frankenstein finger in this section while doing this trial. You can do it, but why make it that much more difficult on yourself?
13-3 Trial: Puzzle based Trial

1. Move column 3 up once
2. Move column 2 up once
3. Move row 2 to the right once
4. Move column 2 down twice
5. Move row 3 to the left once
6. Move column 2 up once
