"We are asleep. Our life is a dream.

But we wake up, sometimes, just enough to know that we are dreaming."

DREAMS

Dreams have always been an enigma for all who experience them. The truth is that it is almost impossible to accurately interpret them. The average person only recalls approximately 10% of dream activity.

The dream concept is an intricate one comprising multiple facets. While we sleep any number of components make up our dreams such as memories, emotions or messages. For those with mediumship abilities dreams can include visions and prophecies. My guardian angel Vincent tells me that dreams were never intended to be this complex, but that they were meant to be a source for knowledge. In other words, dreams were a place we could visit during our sleep to learn about our ancestors and their lives. Over time dreams have evolved beyond their original conception. This is due to a number of elements that have infiltrated them.

Some of the most common dreams are triggered by our anxieties. Many people experience past life memories in dreams and several travel to places unknown to them. Dreams are also used as a method for us to receive messages from our angels and deceased loved ones. Messages received in dreams can be rather confusing at times as they can contain symbolism making them difficult to comprehend.

There will come a time when we will all have a better understanding of the mechanism behind the dream concept and the knowledge to interpret them.

Why do we dream? - BBC  (  55 mins)

 

We spend nearly half of our lives in state of consciousness that is still even to this day is poorly understood. There are no animals in the world that have evolved to not need sleep. Horizon uncovers the secret world of our dreams. In a series of cutting-edge experiments and personal stories, we go in search of the science behind this most enduring mystery and ask: where do dreams come from? Do they have meaning? And ultimately, why do we dream?

What the film reveals is that much of what we thought we knew no longer stands true. Dreams are not simply wild imaginings but play a significant part in all our lives as they have an impact on our memories, the ability to learn, and our mental health. Most surprisingly, we find nightmares, too, are beneficial and may even explain the survival of our species.

NOVA - What Are Dreams? (  55 mins)

 

What are dreams and why do we have them? NOVA joins leading dream researchers as they embark on a variety of neurological and psychological experiments to investigate the world of sleep and dreams. Delving deep into the thoughts and brains of a variety of dreamers, scientists are asking important questions about the purpose of this mysterious realm we escape to at night. Do dreams allow us to get a good night's sleep? Do they improve memory? Do they allow us to be more creative? Can they solve our problems or even help us survive the hazards of everyday life?

NOVA follows a number of scientists, including Matthew Wilson of MIT, who is literally "eavesdropping" on the dreams of rats, and other investigators who are systematically analyzing the content of thousands of human dreams. From people who violently act out their dreams to those who can't stop their nightmares, from sleepwalking cats to the rare instances of individuals who don't seem to ever dream, each fascinating case study contains a vital clue to the age-old question: What Are Dreams?

Lucid Dreaming

A lucid dream is any dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming. The term was coined by the Dutch psychiatrist and writer Frederik (Willem) van Eeden (1860–1932). In a lucid dream, the dreamer may be able to exert some degree of control over their participation within the dream or be able to manipulate their imaginary experiences in the dream environment. Lucid dreams can be realistic and vivid. It is shown that there are higher amounts of beta-1 frequency band (13–19 Hz) experienced by lucid dreamers, hence there is an increased amount of activity in the parietal lobes making lucid dreaming a conscious process.

A lucid dream can begin in one of two ways. A dream-initiated lucid dream (DILD) starts as a normal dream, and the dreamer eventually concludes it is a dream, while a wake-initiated lucid dream (WILD) occurs when the dreamer goes from a normal waking state directly into a dream state, with no apparent lapse in consciousness.

Lucid dreaming has been researched scientifically, and its existence is well established

During most dreams, sleepers are not aware that they are dreaming. The reason for this has not been determined, and does not appear to have an obvious answer. There have been attempts by various fields of psychology to provide an explanation. For example, some proponents of depth psychology suggest that mental processes inhibit the critical evaluation of reality within dreams.

Edgar Cayce

 

 

 

Edgar Cayce - Dreams and Dream Interpretation –  Article

Although it is true that many of us do not consciously remember our dreams, everyone dreams. During the early part of this century, while psychologists such as Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung were demonstrating the clinical importance of dreams, Edgar Cayce was providing average individuals with guidelines for working with what has become one of the most practical approaches to dreams. Hundreds of Cayce's readings deal with the subject of dreams and dream interpretation. Perhaps the most important insights gained from the wealth of this material is the fact that each of us is aware of much more—about ourselves, our physical bodies, our surroundings, even our lifestyles—at subconscious levels than we realize when we are while awake.

Dreams can diagnose the causes of our physical ailments, point out the thoughts and emotions that we've tried to overlook and often make suggestions for improving our relationships with others. While dreaming, we can gain awareness about our entire being: physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Sub-topics on Cayce’s Web:

  • Insights from Dreams

  • Remembering Dreams

  • Interpreting Dreams and Dream Symbols

Dreaming Research - REM ( Rapid Eye Movement)

 

The Sleep Cycles

 

One sleep cycle comprises of four stages and lasts for about 90-120 minutes. Note that some books list five stages in the sleep cycle. These books consider the first five to ten minutes when you are falling asleep as a stage in the sleep cycle. We think this is more of a transitional phase and not really part of the cycle, especially since this stage of sleep does not repeat itself, while the other four stages do repeat themselves throughout the night. For this reason, we have excluded as part of the cycle.

Dreams can occur in any of the four stages of sleep, but the most vivid and memorable dreams occur in the last stage of sleep (also commonly referred to as REM sleep). The sleep cycle repeats itself about an average of four to five times per night, but may repeat as many as seven times. Thus, you can see how a person has several different dreams in one night. However, most people only remember dreams that occur closer toward the morning when they are about to wake up. But just because you can't remember those dreams do not mean that they never happened. Some people believe that they simply do not dream, when in reality, they just don't remember their dreams.

 

The Stages Of Sleep

The stages in the sleep cycle are organized by the changes in specific brain activity.
 

 

Stage 1: You are entering into light sleep. This stage is characterized by Non-rapid eye movements (NREM), muscle relaxation, lowered body temperature and slowed heart rate. The body is preparing to enter into deep sleep.

Stage 2: Also characterized by NREM, this stage is characterized by a further drop in body temperature and relaxation of the muscles. The body's immune system goes to work on repairing the day's damage. The endocrine glands secrete growth hormones, while blood is sent to the muscles to be reconditioned. In this stage, you are completely asleep.

Stage 3: Still in the NREM stage, this is an even deeper sleep. Your metabolic levels are extremely slow.

Stage 4: In this stage of sleep, your eyes move back and forth erratically as if watching something from underneath your eyelids. Referred to as REM sleep or delta sleep, this stage occurs at about 90-100 minutes after the onset of sleep. Your blood pressure rises, heart rate speeds up, respiration becomes erratic and brain activity increases. Your involuntary muscles also become paralyzed or immobilized. This stage is the most restorative part of sleep. Your mind is being revitalized and emotions is being fine tuned. The majority of your dreaming occurs in this stage. If you are awakened during this stage of sleep, you are more likely to remember your dreams.

These stages repeat themselves throughout the night as you sleep. As the cycle repeats, you will spend less time in stages 1 to 3 and more time dreaming in stage 4. In other words, it will be quicker and quicker for you to get to stage 4 each time the cycle repeats.

In ancient Latin, persona meant "mask." Today it does not usually refer to a literal mask but to the "social masks" all humans supposedly wear.
 

 

 

A “Persona”

A persona (plural personae or personas), in the word's everyday usage, is a social role or a character played by an actor. The word is derived from Latin, where it originally referred to a “theatrical mask”.

Stanley Krippner refers to the subject of "Persona"

Sigmund Freud

The Sigmund Freud's first edition of “The Interpretation of Dreams”. It was his Magnum Opus published in 1900. It only sold 351 copies, and went out print, yet it was a massive influence on the way humans knew themselves for the next hundred years. He and his associates created the science of psychology, and he was know as the grandfather of psychology. We want his this book, his greatest work, in our library because of the way Freud changed things. In the book, he tries to show people a psychological method to interpreting the meaning of dreams.


 

 

 

Carl Jung

 

 

 

 

 

Carl Jung – “In Our Time” – BBC P1 /3 ( 14:37mins)

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the extraordinary mind of the psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. In 1907 Sigmund Freud met a young man and fell into a conversation that is reputed to have lasted for 13 hours. That man was the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung. Freud is celebrated as the great pioneer of the 20th century mind, but the idea that personality types can be 'introverted' or 'extroverted', that certain archetypal images and stories repeat themselves constantly across the collective history of mankind, and that personal individuation is the goal of life, all belong to Jung:

 

"Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart... Who looks outside, dreams. - Who looks inside, awakens"

 ~~~


Who was Jung? What is the essence and influence of his thought? And how did he become such a controversial and, for many, such a beguiling figure?

Carl Jung: Face to Face [Full Interview] ( 39 mins)

John Freeman interviews Carl Gustav Jung, the most famous living psychologist, at his home in Zürich. We learn about Jung's early life, including the moment in his eleventh year when he realized he was an individual consciousness. Jung speaks about his friendship with Sigmund Freud, and explains why the friendship could not last. Jung is asked about his belief in God, and Jung can only respond that there is no belief: he knows. And, he says, he knows - knows, not believes - that death is not an end. Finally, Jung forecasts what he thinks will happen to mankind and describes what man needs to survive.

Daydreaming

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Daydreaming

 

Daydreaming is a short-term detachment from one's immediate surroundings, during which a person's contact with reality is blurred and partially substituted by a visionary fantasy, especially one of happy, pleasant thoughts, hopes or ambitions, imagined as coming to pass, and experienced while awake.


There are many types of daydreams, and there is no consistent definition amongst psychologists, however the characteristic that is common to all forms of daydreaming meets the criteria for mild dissociation.

 

Freudian psychology interpreted daydreaming as expression of the repressed instincts similarly to those revealing themselves in nighttime dreams ... Singer & Antrobus created a daydream questionnaire. The questionnaire, called the Imaginal Processes Inventory (IPI), has been used to investigate daydreams. - the IPI and found that daydreamers' imaginary images vary in three ways: how vivid or enjoyable the daydreams are, how many guilt- or fear-filled daydreams they have, and how "deeply" into the daydream people go.

 

Humanistic psychology on other hand, found numerous examples of people in creative or artistic careers, such as composers, novelists and filmmakers, developing new ideas through daydreaming. Similarly, research scientists and mathematicians have developed new ideas by daydreaming about their subject areas. ... nighttime dreaming, is a time when the brain consolidates learning

The Importance of Daydreaming

 

The importance of daydreaming and on the believe is really the Source of intelligence. That our intelligence, solutions to problems, never comes out of our rational thought processes, but we receive that information as insight from our higher natures, only after thought, rational focus has stopped and made room for the insight to arise and be noticed.

 

Daydreaming makes the mind sharper. Accumulating evidence shows that mental drifting boosts brain power and promotes cognitive flexibility, creativity, imagination and general "smart thinking".

 

Mental drifting is the antithesis of mental focus. Researchers conclude that people with fertile minds frequently experience meandering thoughts and that their flashes of insight and creative achievement are due to this ability to escape from rigid cognitive focus. "It is some sort of unconscious process

 

 

 

 

 

How Daydreaming Helps Children Process Information and Explore Ideas

 

For the most part, children are natural, prolific, and happy daydreamers, and the process plays an important role in their developing lives. Too often, however, parents and teachers are quick to label daydreaming as a symptom of an Attention Deficit Disorder or the sign of a slacker in the making. A new study finds that "positive-constructive" daydreaming, even when heavy in pattern, is not related to psychological disorders as some have previously thought, but rather is a normal activity that reflects the daydreamer's imaginative tendencies and enjoyment of daydreaming.

There's actually a substantial amount of research connecting daydreaming in children with creativity, healthy social adjustment, and good school performance.,,,

On Freud's "Creative Writers and Day-dreaming"

 

This is the fourth volume in the series "Contemporary Freud: Turning Points and Critical Issues," published with the International Psychoanalytical Association. Each book in the series presents a classic essay by Freud and discussions of the essay by prominent psychoanalytic teachers and analysts who differ in emphases and who come from different theoretical backgrounds and geographical locations. First presented as an informal lecture in 1907, "Creative Writers and Day-dreaming" pursues two lines of inquiry: it explores the origins of daydreaming and its relation to the play of children, and it investigates the creative process.

Shamans and Dreams

 

“As you become an active dreamer, you will learn how to step outside

 time and embark on conscious dream  journeys to places of initiation

and adventure inside the Dreaming where spiritual teachers and

protectors are  waiting for you.”  -

Robert Moss, Shamanic Counselor and Dream Teacher

 

Shamanism is a spiritual approach to life, the earth and the Universe. It has a long history; undoubtedly longer than any of the world religions known today. It seems to have been a global phenomenon, with almost all cultures showing evidence of Shamanic practice of one sort or another, though practitioners were not always known as Shamans.

Dream Catchers of the Native Americans

It is a handmade object based on a willow hoop, on which is woven a loose net or web. The dreamcatcher is then decorated with personal and sacred items such as feathers and beads.

The dream catchers originally came to us from Native Americans. They think that Dreams are the messages sent by sacred spirits.

According to the legend the web of dream catcher catches good dreams and they reach the sleeper, while letting bad ones to slip away.

The Dream Catcher Clock designed for the same purpose. Moreover it could be used to attract good daydreams and banish bad ones.

The Dream Catchers

 

According to Native Americans, dreams that humans have while they sleep, are sent by sacred spirits as messages. According to their Legend, in the center of the Dream Catcher there is a hole. Good dreams are permitted to reach the sleeper through this hole in the web. As for the bad dreams, the web traps them and they disappear at dawn with the first light. For some, they try to determine what messages are being past onto them and what the message represents.

The Dream Catcher represents several meanings. All of the decorations and materials used to decorate them, all have a special meaning. A single bead in the middle may represent the spider that is on the web. Scattered beads throughout the web may represent good dreams that may have been caught throughout the night. A feather represents a symbol of breath or air which is attached so it hangs from the center of the ring. It is essential for life. A baby watching the air playing with the feather on her cradleboard was entertained while also being given a lesson on the importance of good air.
