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 Tallulah Lyons

All dreams are healing in the sense that all dreams arise as experiences from which dreamers can grow into consciousness of their own wholeness and of the unity of life. Many dreams, particularly nightmares, are part of a series of dreams combined with waking life situations through which the dreamer is invited to move into conscious experience of wholeness, no matter the circumstances of waking life...

 

Dream Medicine


by Sandra Ingerman, MA

Early this morning I had the most extraordinary dream. The first part of the dream was very complex and deep and I do not remember it well. I know I was in an apartment in a city having a very deep discussion with others, and I think the topic might have been on death...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: This article is a bit different than most which we feature here on Dream Medicine. I discovered Sandra's dream on Facebook and asked her permission to share it. Some dreams are so sacred and so beautiful that they cry out to be shared. This one, in particular, has great relevance to today. With the continued desecration of this beloved Earth, we need the kinds of reminders that this dream brings to us. In addition, I am delighted to have Sandra Ingerman featured on Dream Medicine. She is not only a world-renowned author and teacher, she is a beautiful person. And clearly a powerful dreamer, as well.

ATH Co-Editor of Dream Medicine

Last night was my first night camping in a yurt. Everything was going fine. It had been rainy and damp, but then the sun came out and there was a beautiful rainbow. And I had a little heater and a comfortable bed with two warm comforters. So I was surprised when I had a stream of unpleasant dreams...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: Each of us seem to have "bad dreams" at some point in our lives.  And if we work with them in our waking life - either through dreamwork or with a therapist, we can usually find deeper meaning in them.  We can also work to become lucid within our dreams and work with the characters and content in that way. But what if this nightmare is too terrible to deal with? Or what if we are just truly needing a decent night of rest? What do we do then? In this article, I share some tips that worked for me. Sometimes we just want to get out of the nightmare. And I'm here to tell you that help is available.

 

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 Beverly D’Urso, PhD

At this point, in both my waking state and in all my dreams, I aspire to fully experiencing my emotions instead of projecting them outwards or stuffing them inside. I don’t need to avoid them in order to appear more ‘mature’ or less ‘crazy.’ Dissolving or discharging them by experiencing them fully eventually leads me to a more peaceful and centered place...

 

 Editor's Note: Too often people separate the experiences they have in dreams from their actions in waking life. In reality there is much we can learn from the dream that can help us evolve and change in our daily lives. Dr. Beverly D’Urso offers practical guidance for tapping into the dream’s healing wisdom and using it in waking relationships.

 

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.

Editor's Note: This video is a bit academic, but gives a great explanation of the importance that Carl Jung placed on understanding one's dreams.

 

Dream Medicine


by Linda Yael Schiller, LICSW

“Dreams transport us each and every night into that strange and radiant world inside ourselves wherein, for better or worse, we come face to face with powers greater than ourselves...

 

Editor's Note from Cynthia Greb: I am very pleased to introduce you to Linda Yael Schiller. Linda has trained with some of the biggies of the dreamwork world: Robert Bosnack, Robert Moss, Maria Louse Van Franz, Jeremy Taylor, Marion Woodman, Eugene Gendler, and Stanley Krippner. She has also been facilitating dream circles for over 25 years and has herself been a member of a dream circle for 30. That's a heck of a lot of experience she brings to the table!

Dream Medicine


by Atava Garcia-Swiecicki

I am an herbalist and a dreamer. It has been thrilling to discover the ways in which the world of plants and the world of dreams intersect. I have trained myself and my students and clients to pay close attention to a plant that shows up in a dream. Plants that appear in dreams can be prescriptive, instructive or even direct transmitters of healing energy...

 

Editor's Note: Learn how plants communicate in dreams to bring healing information and even direct transmission of healing on many levels in this article by dreamer and herbalist, Atava Garcia Swiecicki MA, RH (AHG).

 

Dream Medicine


by Jeremy Taylor, DMin

Anyone familiar with Buddhism knows some version of the story: young Prince Siddhartha is raised in imperial luxury, and carefully and systematically protected from all conscious knowledge of sickness, old age, and death. Then his charioteer - (some say this charioteer is Krishna, reprising his role as teacher/charioteer in the Bhagavad Gita) - takes him outside the false Disneyland of palace life, built on the “sand” of self-deception, repression, and denial – and shows him the world as it is...

 

Editor's Note: It is always interesting to understand dreams as they are perceived and used in spiritual traditions different from our own. In this article, Jeremy shows us that, in Tibetan Buddhism, lucid dreaming is "the single most important spiritual skill to acquire and cultivate."

 

Dream Medicine


by David Kahn, PhD

When faced with a medical issue, do you reach for the phone to call a doctor? Reach into the medicine cabinet for a pill or medicine? Or do you reach within--to the natural processes that produce our artistic impulses and our dreams?...

 

Editor's Note: In this article Dr. David Kahn uses the theory of self-organization to take a unique approach to the dreaming brain and its creative and healing potential.

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.
