Dream
INTERPRETATION AND SPIRITUALITY
Addressing Real-Life Issues and Spirituality Through Multiple Layers of Meaning (and Feeling)
Welcome! Dreamwork is a modality of spiritual growth for anyone who wants better understandings of both the personal and practical issues in their lives. Good dreamwork gives us insight into problems of all kinds, and always helps to resolve deep emotional issues. Why are dreams important? Dreams have biological as well as spiritual significance. Studies show that everyone dreams every night, and that we basically cease to be able to function at all if we are not allowed to dream. Dreams are intimately involved in brain maintenance functions in ways not well understood.  How can I remember any dreams to begin with? Taking a greater overall interest in your spirituality would be the most basic thing, because dreams are the most evident and obvious conduit we all have to God/Self, to higher levels of our own being. Then, be more interested in dreams themselves. Read a book about them. They will respond if you’re interested! Also, fix anything in your life that impacts your health, or prevents you from getting enough sleep. Things like sleep apnea or poorly-treated diabetes can have a major impact on dream recall. Finally, make the latter part of some evenings more contemplative: yoga, spiritual reading, brief meditation before bed, TV off after 9 PM. Affirm out loud” “I will remember my dreams.” If you still don’t remember, you may be censoring yourself through your won beliefs about them. Are there ways to recall and record dreams in more detail? Sometimes it helps to get into the body positions you were in after you go to bed, and when you wake up. My favorite method is to rehearse a dream in my mind five or six times so that I’ll remember it later. Voice recorders can be very useful if you don’t like writing things down in the wee hours, and you can get pens with lights on them in order to scrawl out a few bullet points without getting up. That is often enough to bring  back an entire dream later on. How do dreams get the information they offer us? We all have psychic faculties which interpenetrate the higher dimensions: fifth, sixth, etc.; and we all have conceptual/emotional fields or auras which extend throughout our individual universes. When various things cause that field to be perturbed, our higher self picks up on it and automatically formulates symbolic messages that suggest ways to reestablish harmony in the field. Some dreams are so crazy, they couldn’t possibly relate to anything in my life. Invariably they do. Although it is part of our very nature (God/Self) to have access to such information, that God/Self doesn’t spoon-feed us anything! We have to do our part on the level of ordinary consciousness, if we are to benefit. That means both interpretative and (ideally) therapeutic work to get at the feelings and issues that the dream wants you to resolve. (Every so often, God does a supernatural intervention into a dream and lets you know something literally, to be sure you get it.) Where can I find good dreamwork? A facilitated dream group (circle) is best, especially for the cognitive level. (Understanding the truth about personal issues can be powerful, because the ways you were kidding yourself get blown away.) Six or seven other dreamers plus an expert facilitator will help you understand the best meanings of your dreams, better than any expert could do on their own. For the emotional level, however, a skilled dreamwork practitioner in a one-on-one session is sometimes better. The ways dreams can be effectively worked with are so diverse that currently there is no professional body or organization that encompasses them all.  While dreamwork is usually only part of a person’s therapeutic regimen, for some it can be the starting point and main focus of the entire therapeutic or coaching process. What dream-related services do you offer? There are four. My open (drop-in) dream groups for $5 may give you a sense of what this work can accomplish. Structured groups, in which participants commit to a limited number of sessions, are available for more intense and focused work. These are $60, paid ahead of time for a series of six sessions with 5-8 participants to ensure a good dynamic. Individual sessions of all kinds (involving dreams, substance abuse, or life situations) are $90, or sometimes $120 for an initial “intake” session if appropriate. Finally, written-only or written-with-conversation dream consults are available remotely, for $20-$60 depending on the complexity of your particular dream/real-life situation. These can involve basic or detailed recommendations of how to address the concrete issues you are dealing with based on what your dreams are saying. For skype sessions, contact me first using the form on the ABOUT ME page, we’ll arrange to do a session and you can pay me afterwards using the button below. If you are concerned only with meaning, written-only/with conversation interpretations are also available, for $20-$60 depending on the length and complexity of the dream and/or the dreamer’s real-life situation. (If you like this option, contact me first before sending me any information.) My email is david@worldspirituality.com.
