What have you refused to face or been ignoring? Dreams come to guide and help, not to amuse. They direct your attention to errors of omission and commission and offer encouragement for right endeavors. They also give us the opportunity to pray for others and to help them bear their burdens.

Their familiarity with the people and places in their dreams obscures the dreams meaning. Here's how it works. Once you have your dream written on paper, get two different colored pens. Using one color, underline every negative word or phrase in the dream which indicates limitation, disrespect, containment, avoidance or damage.

Determine the subject matter of the dream. The location where the dream takes place is one of the best methods for doing this. When you have determined the subject matter take each of the phrases or words in the 'I AM' column and fit them into the following sentence. When it comes to my subject matter I AM phrase or keyword Change the phrase or keyword slightly to force the sentence to make sense.
If you cannot determine the subject matter apply the keywords to yourself in general. This exercise tells you how you feel or react to the subject matter of the dream.

Spirituality and psychology have come together within the field of transpersonal psychology, which investigates transcendent states as an integral pan of the whole of an individual For the conscious dreamer, the exploration of dreams is a quest for personal truth and spiritual certainty.
By honoring the dreams from the Upper World as containing sacred information, one may be guided and supported toward life's fulfillment. The dreams of the first day of the month are the right dreams. Dreams, it seems, have fascinated the entire human race from earliest times.
And until quite recently, most cultures have set great store by dreams. For example, in ancient Egypt the high priests used dreams for prophecies. There still exists a papyrus book of dreams dating back approximately 3, years in which dream symbols are interpreted, proving that the Egyptians took their dreams seriously. In ancient Greece, people believed that dreams were a direct contact with the gods.
One of the principal uses of dreams was for healing. Sick people went to special temples that were dedicated to dreaming as a curative method. There, a physician would help to induce a dream, which the physician would then interpret as a guide to the treatment of the ailment, and its cause as well. In modern times, the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, drew upon the writings of Artemidorus, a Greek who lived in the second century B.
John Dryden, an English philosopher, dismissed dreams as the result of indigestion or infection. The bias against dreams continued through the nineteenth century, when most people thought that dreams were caused by some external stimulus—such as a knock on the door making a person dream the house was being burglarized. Aside from such shallow interpretation, most ordinary people, doctors and philosophers, church fathers and professors, believed that dreams had no meaning and saw no need to heed them.
In his autobiography, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Dr. Jung tells of a dream in which he was a guest at a garden party, Just Playing (Dreams).
Another guest was a woman from the town of Basel, a good friend of both Jung and his sister. In the dream, Jung says, he instinctively knew the woman from Basel would die.
However, when he woke up he had no idea who the woman was in real life, though the dream was exceptionally vivid. I knew at once that she was the person I had seen in the dream but had been unable to identify.
Though Freud was obsessed with sexual meanings in dreams to the exclusion of all else, he performed a useful service with the publication of his book on dream interpretation. Fortunately, one of his student colleagues, Carl Gustav Jung of Switzerland, disagreed with Freud and formulated a more comprehensive theory of dream analysis. Jung researched the previously unstudied territory of the unconscious and came up with the idea of a collective unconscious, through which all people were connected by a common store of knowledge and experience that often revealed itself in dreams.
Sleep is absolutely crucial for our physical, mental and emotional health and well-being. It is during sleep that we abandon conscious control of our physical body and the unconscious mind is allowed to roam free, giving rise to dreams.
For centuries it was thought that the purpose of sleep was to rest the body and the mind, but this reasoning was disproved when it was shown that both the body and mind are active during sleep. Sleep researchers may not yet have discovered the exact reason for sleep or dreams but they have discovered some fascinating things.
For example, it seems that when we are asleep our brains are a bit like computers that are offline. This J.
They take stock of your body and release a growth hormone to repair damaged tissues and stimulate growth, while the immune system gets to work on attacking any viral or bacterial infections that may be present. Some experts believe the brain also jettisons trivial information during sleep to prevent it becoming overburdened with unimportant information, but this explanation is perhaps too simplistic, as no memory can be totally eradicated.
The advent of space travel gave scientists the opportunity to prove that resting the body was not the main function of sleep.
What they found instead was that prolonged periods of isolation decreased the need for sleep. In other words, the fewer stimuli received from people or external contacts during the day, the less sleep was required. It seems we have a sleep control center at the base of our brain linked with activity during wakefulness. It seems, therefore, that boredom and lack of stimuli may account for many cases of insomnia.
Paradoxically, overstimulation also produces insomnia. Learn Dream Symbol Language Your dream and its symbols speak through the language of dream symbolism.
