by Layne Dalfen, Dream Analyst

The late Dr. Montague Ullmans' approach, commonly referred to as the “If this were my dream” method is what I want to discuss in this article. Dr. Ullman, like all of us, was faced with a dilemma when working with a group of people doing dreamwork, a situation he found himself in constantly. His wonderful approach is today, a standard practice in respecting the boundaries of the dreamer, making sure the dreamer's meaning of their dream remains theirs to decide...

 

Editor's Note: With the proliferation of online dream groups these days, it's more important than ever for dreamers to learn guidelines for responding sensitively and effectively to the dreams of others. In this article Layne Dalfen describes the classic "If it were my dream" technique.

Dream Medicine


by Karen Baldwin

For two months after the web-like growth in my breast was confirmed as cancer, I visited specialists. Driving through dreary, gray December fog, I located the radiation treatment center, an enormous building I had never noticed before. The waiting room, carpeted with geometric patterns in shades of mauve and gray, was filled with patients with long, empty expressions.

 

Editor's Note: Dreams can tell us about illnesses in our body and even point to correct medical interventions. Karen Baldwin has had such an experience, and by following her dream, she enjoys vibrant health.

 

Dream Medicine


by Rev. Karen Baldwin

Throughout the world’s sacred texts are many references to the “temple” of the soul. Although I’ve never dreamed of temples, I often dream of houses. These dream houses, in varying states of grandeur or disrepair, seem to represent the current status of my body, mind, and spirit - my soul...

 

Editor's Note: People often dream of houses. Do you dream of mansions or run-down houses in your dreams? What rooms in a house do you find yourself in most often? Karen provides a room-by-room analysis of possible meanings for each room in a house, as well as what specific houses might mean.

 

Dream Medicine


by Karyn Siegel-Maier

For centuries, the fragrance of herbs has been captured in pillows and sweet bags to purify and scent the home. They were known by European mothers anxious to lure their offspring into tranquil sleep, by those seeking relief from headache or depression, and by the solitary who yearned to find true love. Fragrant herbs were sewn into pillows and placed at the head of the bed or between the linens. Often, their scent would be carried from open doorways and windows where they were carefully hung...


Editor's Note
: In this article Karyn Siegel-Maier offers in-depth information about how to create herbal dream pillows that can help ensure that your dreams are peaceful and sweet!

Dream Medicine


by Pamela Muller

My personal experience with dreams as a self-healing tool is what has drawn me to my calling as a dream interpreter. My dreams helped me navigate through a very difficult five year period in my life. During that journey, I was lost. I lost faith in God and had no one to turn to. In my isolation, I began to pay attention to my dreams because that world seemed so distant from the nightmare of my waking life...

Dream Medicine


by Jeremy Taylor

Whenever any dream is remembered, it is an indication that the waking mind has a creative, transformative role to play in the evolution of whatever issue the dream is presenting...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Jeremy Taylor believes as I do: our dreams are a way for the Divine to be in communion with us.  However, he also notes that many of the major world religions disparage actual "dreamwork."   Fortunately, this is beginning to change a bit in the West.

DREAM MEDICINE
Dream Mirrors of the Self

by Robert Moss

One of the most important gifts of our dreams is that they put us in touch with more aspects of ourselves than we have recognized in what Yeats called our “daily trivial minds.” Among these aspects is the famous Shadow, composed of parts of our selves we have repressed or denied (and tend to project on to others in regular life, till we awaken). But we encounter much more than the Shadow. We encounter a whole family of aspects of ourselves, and as we recognize them and bring them together we become much more than we were.
