Dreams
« on: April 21, 2011, 06:47:23 AM »

I had a dream last night and will say that I am a big dreamer.  Sometimes I will wake up knowing what the dream means for me.  So, the question is, does Michael talk about dreaming at all?

Okay, for anyone interested, here is the dream.  I was in a room that was jam-packed full of people.  The people in this room were the people in this forum.  There was only one seat left and I was the newbie and I had to share it with someone else.  Someone behind me was reading something they had written.  I understand it to be Dave Gregg.  It was beautifully stated and everyone in the room was moved by what he had said.  Then, I believe it was John Roth, asked if anyone had anything to add.  I raised my hand and he told me that I couldn't talk b/c my computer system hadn't been set up yet.  I was confused as to his meaning.  Then Dave told him I was on the forum and so everything was set up.  I was allowed to talk. 

John, I hope you don't take offense to this.  I think it is because you are considered, at least by me, the "Keeper of Topics".  And in my dream, you wanted to make sure I was on topic.

Neat dream, Lori! There is some wonderful material on dreams in Jose Steven's Earth to Tao. They delineate the different types of dreams and how to work with your dreams. Off the top of my head, there are wish fulfillment dreams, past-life dreams, and doing stuff on the astral plane dreams (I'm sure there is some other more succinct name for that in the book! :D). Then there are dreams that are kind of downloads or dumps from all the imagery and thoughts from your day -- not really meaningful, just a bunch of "stuff".

One thing I like very much is recurring dreams -- you can choose to do things different in a recurring dream, to make a more empowered or positive choice. It symbolically reflects you doing so in your waking life as well. I've experienced this with several of my recurring dreams.

They also give a very interesting example of past-life dreams, where your dream situation is actually a past-life memory where you dealt with an issue that you are currently dealing with in this present life.

Gosh, I wonder what I had to say that was so moving. Surely it wasn't a passage from my Demented Plane blog. ;) And John is our roving encyclopedia. You can ask him just about anything and he'll have a thoughtful reply. I envy scholars.

Thank you for sharing that wonderful dream, Lori. Have you had anything further with our forum members? Perhaps we all study together in an astral classroom.

Best,
Dave

I always feel very empowered, excited, and inspired in my flying dreams-- as you can imagine, they are some of my favorites.

Flying dreams are traditionally thought to be remnants of out of body experiences. I used to have them all the time when I was younger, but sadly they've either diminished or I just don't remember them.

I have never had a flying dream, nor any dream in which I was being chased or threatened.  I have had one nightmare in my entire life and that involved my pets.  I do normally easily recall my dreams and have had some very odd, very clear, very interactive dreams starring famous celebrities and I cannot figure that part out, lol. I am not a celeb watcher!

Do you know what meaning fighting dreams have? I sometimes have them. The last one was very detailed. I fighted with Laserswords against two other men (or one of them was with me, don't know). Is there a clear, distinct, exactly meaning for this? And it didn't felt very fun.

Do you know a good book for understanding the meaning of dreams? Chiara, you said the book "Earth to Tao". But there are just some passages about this theme, in the book. Right? Or is it enough? Thanks.

Yes, there are only a few paragraphs about dreams, but the information is quite unique.

There is no clear, distinct meaning for anything in dreams, because it's all so personal. It's a matter of figuring out what the symbols mean to you and how they apply to your own life and psyche. That means those dream dictionaries are pretty much worthless.

To be very general, I would say that fighting dreams indicates some sort of conflict in yourself. When you start looking at the details and the feelings in the dream, then you can start to get more specific about what kind of conflict and what it means in your life.

I would add something to it. But unfortunately I'm not having any intersting to add :S.

Greeting, jo

I agree with Chiara. Dream dictionaries are, at best, worthless. Dreams are either symbolic; past, future or parallel life memories; or the result of the brain's housekeeping operations. You treat the first and third the same way. Write the dream down, list each and every element, and ask yourself what it means. If you've made a sufficiently detailed list you'll find that some of the elements resonate with things that are going on in your life that day.

One thing to look at is the structure of the element rather than the exact representation. A wall, for example, can mean many things. Is it limiting? Is it protective? Is it there to hold up the roof? Is it there to define a space?

These kinds of dreams have a tendency for the elements to repeat; that is, the same element will tend to reoccur when the same issue has raised its head in your life that day.

Once you've resolved the issue that's attached to a particular element, that element tends to vanish from your dreams, either because Essence (the force behind symbolic dreams) no longer thinks it's something you need to work on, or because your brain has it figured out and it doesn't come up in its nightly housekeeping and filing work.
