It seems more and more people are noticing a greater amount of dreams or dream-recall and maybe other "weird" things surrounding them as of late,
so I thought I would create a thread for general dream chat & consolidation of dream resources.
A bit about myself & my dreaming experience if you will:
I am a natural lucid dreamer and have seen & done quiet a few things on that "astral plane", "altered state", or "dream land" however you would
like to put it. Being that I always had very good dream recall in the very least while growing up, I have learned quiet a bit about how to interpret
and use dreams as a self improvement/empowerment tool (and the implications get more wild from there). I would be happy to offer anyone a different
perspective on any of their dreams or visions either in public here on the thread of confidentially via u2u.
I've made my own youtube channel devoted to dreams, astral projection, obe's, & general
). My most recent video is one on basic dream interpretation
Basic 1-2-3 Dreaming & How to Interpret Them
Despite what some people will say, all dreams mean something to you, they are subconscious(and sometimes super conscious or "higher self")
communication, and everything you see in your dream is a reflection of yourself in some way shape or form. That is very important to remember. Also,
nightmares are simply fear that has run un-checked and is now exploiting you. Just as a fun and exciting dream will leave you energized which may
manifest as a good day and opportunities taken, operating out of fear will keep you from having a pleasant time and may inhibit your chance at
Dreams are a safe place we can face and over come fears, meet and talk to whoever you want, learn lessons, rehearse for big events, have sex with
whoever you want, fly around the world, see what's under the sea, view distant galaxies, talk to spirits, see other dimensions, time travel, and
most important; understand just who you are as a unique entity soul or and how to accept yourselves & others.
Another good place to start getting an idea of common dreams & general dream sign interpretation is:
who have a fairly extensive dream sign dictionary located here:
An informative dreamer: Robert Moss
I recently found information on the above research (Robert Moss) who I find to be quiet informative and I share quiet a bit of his perspectives on
dreams and using them. Below I have a link to the 1st part of a recent interview Robert did on Coast to Coast
. Here's a clip from the description of the show:
Scholar and dream pioneer Robert Moss discussed dream interpretation and how the lives of historic figures were influenced by dreams. According to
him, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, and Harriet Tubman were some of the titans of history who had dreams affect their lives. "I tried to write the
inner dimension of history," Moss said of his goals with historical dream research.
He recounted one remarkable dream which was shared between two of America's founding fathers: John Adams and Benjamin Rush. In the dream, experienced
by Rush, he was given a book about the "future history of the United States." In it, Rush read that Adams and his longtime political rival had
reconciled and that they die on the same day. Seventeen years later, this very turn of events did indeed occur. "The dream was precognitive ... If we
have any doubt about the central, vital importance of dreaming in the history of everything, take an example like that and be educated," Moss
Robert Moss (part 1/12)
It does appear more and more people are becoming consciously aware of their dreams (as well as conscious in
) & more people are
trying to get into lucid dreaming
too. If you'd like to learn how to do that, I would
highly-highly recommend this book to start:
Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming : By Stephen LaBerge
The author Stephen Laberge
is Stanford University
and has done extensive research into the subject. Here is a link to Stephen's website:
A Bit About Being Out of Body:
This is an interesting subject as it seems OBE's are yet another phenominon that blurs the lines of reality and what is a dream and what isn't. I
know I have had my fair share of these types of experiences within all types of contexts. From the astral projection sense of seeing an "astral
body" or "projection" to real-time point-of-consciousness remote viewing
-type situations. I
actually did a video journal of sorts on OBE's I have had with a tip or two on how to do it thrown in as well:
Where Am I? Some Different Types of Out of Body Experiences (part 1/4)
The proverbial "Grand Daddy" of OBE's though has to be Robert Monroe
who is also responsible
for founding the Monroe Institute
which studies brain hemispheric functions and how they relate to things
like OBE's as well development of OBE techniques & tools. One product they develop and sell is
which applies the Binaural beat
principle which is also see in products like I-doser
Below is part 1 of 2 of an interview with Robert Monroe about his 1st OBE experience and subsequent experiences and what he saw, gathered, and learned
from the experiences about our spiritual origins and a few other very interesting things.
Robert Monroe on His 1st OBE Experience:
Bringing it back to dreams and how they all reflect ourselves...
The terms "synchronicity
" and "
" where both coined by a man named
Carl Gustav Jung
. All you "mystics" and people who tend to like to "poo-poo" science should
love this fellow as he was the scientific antithesis of the time. He used to work with Sigmund
who I am sure many people have heard mentioned before. By in large, Jung was Frued's successor and some might say superior in many ways.
I have link this amazing video interview with Carl Jung before his death in 1961 where he actually talks about him and Frued exchanging dream
interpretations. He actually spent time on things like Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, astrology, sociology, as well as literature and the
His teachings & philosophies definitely live on in everyone's modern paradigm of thought on the subject of dreams whether they are aware of it or not
as it shares universal truth(not to say he was always right, but the intention was pure). Now on with the show...
