Dreams: Understanding Mind, Spirit and Self

abracad, · Categories: dreams

Dreams provide a valuable key to understanding our unconscious mind, and therefore our true self. They may also offer an insight into our Spiritual essence and connection with the greater Spiritual reality. This article seeks to describe the concept of mind and give guidance on understanding the dreams it produces.

What is Mind?

If our brain is like a supercomputer, the mind is like the software that it runs. Note that the software is distinct from the computer it runs on. Continuing the analogy for the Spiritually inclined the mind is the interface between our physical and Spiritual aspects, ie body and soul! (more…)

The Golden Caress

abracad, · Categories: dreams, externally authored, spirituality

By Dr. Stewart Bitkoff

Hesitantly the Traveler told the Blindman about his dream.

"Last night as I slept I was uncertain if I was awake or asleep? I found myself in a Throne Room that was arrayed in Sparkling White Light. I found myself kneeling before a person or Being that I did not know, but felt very comfortable with. Because of the intensity of the White Light with its changing hues, many of the physical details about his appearance were blurred and indistinct.

As I knelt, he stood and placed a kiss upon my forehead and whispered, very softly, "In the Name of God, Most Gracious and Most Merciful." With these words, the Throne Room grew brighter and brighter, until I was forced to close my eyes. Then I awoke; and when I awoke, I felt a warm gentle sensation, tingling in the center of my forehead, where I had just been caressed. (more…)

7 Reasons to Record Your Dreams

by Tom T. Moore, Copyright 2014

Back in 1979, I started to record my dreams each night and morning as I awoke.  About two weeks after I began, I had an extremely vivid dream of an explosion with awoman and men somehow involved.  My wife and I, at that time, owned an international, wholesale tour company, and were planning a trip to Manila for a world congress of travel agents.  We both decided to delete the Manila portion of the trip and added days to Taiwan and Hong Kong.  On the first day of the congress, terrorists blew up a bomb near the front of the stage where we would normally have sat, injuring ten travel agents.  Later, a woman that worked in the Philippines cultural office in Los Angeles and four other men were arrested.  Afterwards, I vowed to record my dreams the rest of my life.

Below are seven reasons why you should record your dreams each day, one of which I touched on above. (more…)

Universal Dreams and What They Might Mean

abracad, · Categories: dreams

Long considered by many to be a window on the soul, the dream world weaves an infinitely varied tapestry from the mundane to the bizarre, the unspeakably beautiful to the downright terrifying. And yet within the vast diversity of the dream space, there are a number of themes which seem to occur repeatedly across individuals and cultures.

In The Universal Dreams Patricia Garfield, Ph.D., former President of the Association for the Study of Dreams identifies 12 universal dream themes including "chase or attack", "poor test performance", and "being lost or trapped". Might the frequency of these universal themes point to a common origin, even purpose, shared by all humanity?

How to cure your mind and body through Dream Programming

abracad, · Categories: dreams, externally authored, healing

by Jim Francis

The mind does not make an appearance within physical reality, but the brain is based in physical reality. Our dreams occupy the same space as the mind…..that is, no space at all.

The images that appear in dreams appear as “forms” in other realities and they are not restricted by our physical reality rules of time, space and growth. They involve the materialization of spontaneous constructions which would normally not occur in our physical world. (more…)

The Message Behind Recurring Dreams

abracad, · Categories: dreams, externally authored

By Zoe Young at Answers in Writing

When we fall asleep we release tension, we relax and our mind slips away. We slide into another state, that of dreams and often of a very personal message to ourselves.  When we look at dreams, especially recurring ones, we can see a theme.  But what does it mean and how does it truly relate to you?  To find this out it is important to remember that in the state of dream sleep you are not fully present, it is your subconscious that is at play.  It is your subconscious then that is arising to give you a message.  It could be relaying a truth of an underlying problem and giving you a diagnosis.

Four Powerful Tricks for Successful Lucid Dreaming

abracad, · Categories: dreams, externally authored

Author: Evelyn Grazini

Lucid Dreaming is a very interesting subject, and is definitely worth taking a look at. As we continue to grow in our knowledge of what happens while we are sleeping, and how we can use our brains to help us achieve success, it is also becoming apparent that we can find pleasure and entertainment in our sleep, and can become a part of it all. Lucid is described as "conscious awareness" during sleep. What this means is, we know we are dreaming, and we want to get inside the dream and have some fun. After all, while in the dream state, all things are possible! We can fly, swim underwater for a long time, see all things, and now, with practice, we can participate in these dreams. (more…)

Helpful Techniques for Inducing Lucid Dreams

abracad, · Categories: dreams, externally authored

Author: Universal Church of Metaphysics

Most lucid dreams occur between 5AM and 8 AM, times that are most likely to be longer REM periods. LaBerge’s work at Stanford confirmed this occurrence. The first step is to develop good dream recall. If one cannot remember dreams at all or has difficulty remembering dreams, then lucid dreaming is nearly impossible. Awareness must be developed in the area of dreaming. First of all plenty of sleep is necessary, and the longer one sleeps, the more dreams are possible. As the night progresses, dream periods get longer and closer together until near wake up time, the dreams are forty-five to sixty minutes long and only a half hour apart. The first dream of the night is the shortest, perhaps only five to ten minutes in length. (more…)
