by Rev. Karen Baldwin

During a recent interview for my hometown newspaper, I was asked, “How do you know the difference between a dream that has a real message, and a dream that is just messing with you?”...

 

Editor's Note: Karen provides valuable information in this article about the purpose of dreaming. She answers the question, "How do you know the difference between a dream that has a real message, and a dream that is just messing with you?"

 

Dream Medicine

 


by Larry Culliford, MB, BChir (Cantab), MRC Psych (UK)

I am a frequent and vivid dreamer. Perhaps this is natural, but it may also be connected to having kept a ‘dream diary’ while in my twenties. On waking, I would recall and record as much as possible of any of the night’s dreams...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: I am delighted to introduce to ATH readers Dr. Larry Culliford, an author and retired psychiatrist from the UK, who writes and teaches extensively about the joint fields of Psychology and Spirituality.  In a column he writes for Psychology Today, he shares a couple of his own transformative dreams.
Welcome, Larry!

 

Dream Medicine


by Tzivia Gover

The dreams were there even before I opened my eyes. In this one I was lost (not an uncommon dream) and searching for a Japanese restaurant that I eat in from time to time in waking life, called Zen. I woke that morning in a hotel in Charleston, South Carolina, where I was staying while attending a 4-day intensive on dreams. I was one year into a dream certification process and I was remembering an average of 6-8 dreams a  night, plus recording all of them in my dream journal...

 

Editor's Note: When we begin to take an interest in our dreams we are often told that the first step in understanding our dreams is to write them down. In this article I explore some of the reasons why that simple instruction can have profound results.

 

Dream Medicine


by Jean Raffa

Dreamwork has been my most rewarding and consistent spiritual practice for 22 years. You might not think of dreams as having anything to do with spirituality but they absolutely do. Carl Jung demonstrated this with exquisite beauty in his recently published The Red Book in which he recorded some of his most meaningful waking and sleeping dreams...

 

Editor's Note: Dreams can be the basis for a unique, personal, and fully empowered spiritual practice, as author Dr. Jean Raffa explains in this article.

 

Dream Medicine


by Rachel G. Norment

The word for “dream” in Hebrew is chalom and is derived from the verb meaning “to be made healthy or strong.” In his book Healing Dreams Marc Barasch discusses how his own dreams and those of others led to healing.

 

In his own case, after he had ignored a series of vivid and mysterious dreams, one jolted him to attention. He tells how in this dream “torturers had hung an iron pot filled with red-hot coals beneath my chin, and I woke up screaming..."

 

Dream Medicine


by Laurel Clark, DD, DM

Most people fear death. Although we know that death is inevitable, there is often a difference between what we believe intellectually and what we experience emotionally. Why is this so?  It would seem that such a universal experience could be met with acceptance...

 

Editor's Note: Death is a topic that evokes fear or outright denial in many people. In this article Laurel Clark shows how dreams can help us confront, and come to peace with, this mysterious transition.

 

Dream Medicine


by Kirsten Backstrom, MA

I’m trying to write this post while watching the annual Oregon Humane Society telethon: a steady stream of incredible cats and dogs awaiting adoption—reminding me of the significant roles that animals can play in our lives and in our dreams...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Do you have Guides and Messengers appearing in your dreams?  Here, Kirsten Backstrom talks about figures - human, animal, and otherworldly - which appear in our dreams, often at turning points in our lives and especially as one nears death.

 

Dream Medicine


by Valley Reed, CDT

When we have a love for something we strive towards in our everyday life, we may find in dreaming, we can connect with the greater experience and presence of those who have passed on, but their legacy remains. I have dreamt and worked as an activist toward peace and justice for more than 10 years. It is often difficult and thankless work, but clearly needed in order to create change from a culture of violence toward one of peace with justice...

 

Editor's Note: Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream, and sometimes we dream with famous people who have an inspiring affect on our waking and dreaming life. We can also dream others in a mutual dream where it is possible to meet up in the dream space with other dreamers for wonderful adventures. Read more find inspiring dream adventures leading to a more peaceful world.

 

Dream Medicine


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.

Q: I don’t want to try lucid dreaming because I don’t want my ego to interfere with the natural flow of wisdom and information from my dreams...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Tzivia Gover was once a co-editor of Dream Medicine and she is still doing fabulous work in the field.  This article beautifully answers a frequently asked and important question about lucid dreaming.

 

Dream Medicine


by Kirsten Backstrom, MA

Following up on the theme of dream figures that I’ve been exploring in the last two posts (“The True Nature of Dream Figures,” and “Dream Messengers, Guides, And Guardians”): Another type of dream figure that can play a significant role in our lives is the Companion...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Oftentimes we are the primary protagonist in our dreams and we experience our dreams as a lone figure.  But sometimes we are blessed to have a dream companion. Here Kirsten Backstrom talks about this phenomenon.

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.
