The table was derived from color psychology research and literature, in large part the Color Test by Dr. Max Luscher, augmented with the works of C. G. Jung. The statements are representative of some of the more common human subliminal emotional responses to color, representing the manner in which your autonomic nervous system and the brain responds to color at an unconscious level. Whereas we all have accumulated cultural or ‘learned’ associations with color, those are more cognitive. Dreams originate in the unconscious, and it is this ‘inner’ response to color which seems to most closely relate to the colors we see in our dreams...

Sometimes a lucid dream, one in which the dreamer is aware that she is dreaming, results in an apparent physical healing. What follows is a condensed version of June L.s’ story and my speculations on creating a scientifically verifiable, lucid dream healing experiment...


Editor's Note from Tzivia Gover: Anecdotally we know that many people have reported experiencing physical healing after a lucid dream about their ailment. In this article Robert Waggoner not only shares such an anecdote, he also proposes a method for scientifically exploring the possibility of using lucid dreaming as a healing modality.

Editor's Note from Tzivia Gover: Dreamcatchers are not only beautiful Native American-inspired objects, they are also said to bring good dreams and keep the bad dreams away. They make beautiful gifts; in fact, some say you should never make one for yourself, but only to give away! This short video shows you how.

"In 1844, American inventor Elias Howe, puzzling over how to design sewing machine needles, reportedly woke from a dream in which he was being chased by cannibals carrying spears with holes in the pointed tips. He then realized that machine needles would need holes at the front end."

~from Deirdre Barrett's book The Committee of Sleep regarding dream-generated creativity

Erin Langley

"The first dream I remember happened in the apartment my family lived in until I was 18 months old. So, sometime when I was very young, I had a dream of three faceless figures sitting on a bench in a desert, in front of a building made of sand with swinging red doors. I guess it was a nightmare, because I screamed for my mom, “The folks are coming! The folks are coming!” It was very real. My dream life has always been vivid..."

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Periodically I will be interviewing people whom I know to be powerful dreamers and/or notable within the field of Dream Medicine. My first interview is with a women I met in grad school. The more I got to know Erin Langley, the more impressed I was with her wisdom and talent. (In addition to being a powerful dreamer, she is an exceptional artist.) I was further introduced to her Dreaming abilities during the course of our mutual immersion in the Indigenous Mind program.

If your project is dream incubation,
You must limit crude sense-stimulation.
Be calm and serene,
Conscientious and clean,
And refrain from excess celebration...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: In this delightful post, Kirsten Backstrom shows that dreamwork and dream incubation doesn't have to be heady and intellectual.

I am transported to a place high above the clouds. The land here is arrayed with all the brilliant colors of autumn. The sun is shining brightly as a beautiful winged angel, guides me through the golden fields to a house.There's a porch on this old country house, where I am invited to have refreshment and stay a while...

 

Editor's Note: In this inspirational article Brenda Ferrimani writes eloquently about how a dream and its symbols helped her discover her unconditional love for her out-of-control teenage daughter.

 

Dream Medicine


by Linda Yael Schiller, LICSW

Let’s start with story. Our dreams usually come though with some kind of story line.  It may be a very short story of a sentence or two, or at times a full-length narrative. We can examine our dream story both for it’s personal meaning (for healing, problem solving, spiritual questing, etc.) but also as a story in and of it’s own right.  What is the major plot?  The dynamic tensions between the characters?  The sources of conflict, and how/if they are resolved?  Is there an inner or outer journey involved?  These types of questions and use of other literary devices can both provide the basis to turn our dream story into art, and to re-create the story of our own lives as metaphor or road map...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Linda Yael Schiller, as a psychotherapist and long-time dreamworker, brings an enormous wealth of knowledge and skills to the art of working with dreams.  In this article she gives examples of some psychotherapeutic techniques which can be used to uncover deeper layers of our dreams.

'This very moment is the perfect teacher."
~Pema Chodron


What would it be like to discover in our waking life the same creative insight, connection to deeper wisdom, and possibilities for transformation that dreams offer. To find in our everyday encounters, even the difficult and challenging ones, an opportunity for insight and empowerment? And what would it be like to be truly awake and conscious in our everyday life -- in the same way that dreamers attempt to become lucid and conscious while dreaming...

In looking at my dreams, I often see reflections of my negative actions, thoughts, and feelings. By examining them closely and being completely honest with myself, I’ve come to discover who I am, why I am who I am, and more importantly, who I am meant to be...

 

Editor's Note from Tzivia Gover: Why do some dream recur again and again? In this article Bobbie Ann Pimm shows how a recurring dream can be an invitation to self-growth and emotional healing.

 

Dream Medicine


by Valley Reed, CDT

The practice of dream sharing is a long lost art, kept alive through some family traditions, indigenous cultural practices or amongst modern day dream enthusiasts. The influence of western minimalist scientific thought has analyzed our dreams down to tiny bits and pieces, and as a society we have become disconnected to dreaming and sharing dreams together as a community...

 

Editor's Note from Valley Reed: I began sharing dreams with my children when they were in preschool. Now that they are teenagers, I am grateful to have this line of deep communication and trust between us. I believe sharing dreams together has helped to cultivate this bond. I now teach workshops on Family Dream Sharing to help grow this practice with other families.

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.
