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.

As background on my life currently, let me say that I have temporarily moved back home to assist in the transitions of my parents. My father, after several years struggling with Alzheimer’s and more recently Parkinson’s as well, was recently admitted to a nursing home.  After a couple weeks there he fell and experienced a rather pronounced decline...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Those of you interested in dream themes may find this article interesting. During the month of December, I had six or seven dreams about the Goddess. Clearly the Divine Feminine is calling to me (and perhaps to all of us.) What have you been dreaming about lately? I'd love to hear.

 

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 Leora K. Satie

I advocate instead for snoozing as a spiritual practice.

Always a dreamer and a snoozer, day or night, for as far back as I can remember, how wonderful it is to be connected these days with my Tribal sisters and brothers who also follow this different drum...

 

Editor's Note from Tzivia Gover: Let’s hear it for snoozing! Leora K. Satie’s piece is light-hearted in tone, but the message is definitely worth taking to heart. Sleep is valuable, and it’s about time it was valued in our society, as well!

 

Dream Medicine


by Jeremy Taylor

The scientific evidence is overwhelming and unambiguous: all human beings dream, whether they recall these nightly adventures upon awakening or not.

 

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


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!

ATH Co-Editor of Dream Medicine

If you are reading this, you undoubtedly recognize the importance of dreams. They are not simply random neurons firing and haphazardly replaying the events of the day. Our dreams have something to tell us!  Sometimes it is challenging to gauge the meaning of our dreams because they often speak metaphorically or in puns...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Sometimes our lives get very busy and we may remember our dreams, we may even record them, but we may not always take the time to sit with their meaning and messages for us. Here is a cautionary tale of what could happen if we don't pay attention to our dreams' wisdom and guidance.

 

Dream Medicine


by Kate Adams, PhD

Children often tell researchers that no one listens to them when they want to talk about their dreams. Unfortunately, pressured schedules and a cultural disinterest in dreams mean that many parents take little notice of their own dream life, never mind their children's. Here are five reasons why parents might want to find a few moments to listen carefully to their children's nightly expeditions...

 

Editor's Note: Psychology Today expert, Kate Adams PhD shares some important tips on why listening to children's dreams is crucial to their sense of well being. Read this helpful article and take some time to share dreams with a child in your life.

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: This is a long one but good interview with dream expert Stanley Krippner.

 

Dream Medicine


by Ryan Hurd

Big Dreams are usually discussed in the popular media as dreams we remember for the rest of our lives. These could include emotionally intense dreams, powerful dream journeys, and visitation dreams.

 

However, the "dreams we remember for the rest of our life" are not the Big Dreams that contemporary dream researchers have demarked, but rather a watered down "catch-all" category that is based on the dreaming public's perceived importance of particular dreams, rather than a set of features and characteristics unique to the experiences themselves...

 

Dream Medicine


by Tzivia Gover

After trying for over a week to have a lucid dream, I finally succeeded…

Typically I have a lucid dream once or twice a month without trying. If I want to have a dream in which I know that I’m dreaming, I usually achieve my goal after a night or two of setting my intention in that direction...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: I always love reading about people's powerful dreams. In this article, not only do we have the privilege of hearing about Tzivia's beautiful dream, but we also get tips on how to cultivate lucid dreaming.

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.
