Dream Encoding

Dream logic is your personal logic. All the metaphors that show up in dreams, they are in your dream world because they govern your waking attention habits. For dream space, it does have forms and geography, but they aren’t dictated by what most people would see as the obvious. This is the same reason your brain won’t let you see everything. It has to “keep up with the real”. The real is just your belief pattern.

Dreams form memories in the brain as easily and tangibly as physical experience does. You can’t convince yourself your dreams are meaningless and have meaning in your waking experience.

How do you experience keeping secrets from yourself or the wider “conscious”, if I may call it that? Freud spoke of the irrationality of a part of the mind he called the ID. Well… Rationality is a joke, but that’s… Seek More

The Real World

About this “not real” nonsense. Shall we explore reality? The only thing you or anyone else knows, or can know of reality, is the personal or the interpersonal. But even the interpersonal will have your personal adaptation inevitably, and does… Seek More

Field Of Experience

An example of dreams opening us up for what the world is saying: I was on holiday with my best friend who I trusted completely. When one night I dreamed that she was communicating behind my back with an ex-lover,… Seek More

Dream Domains

The dream world has as much reality as the waking world. What gets tricky is seeing the connections or “roads” that connect the dream world to ours, of which there are three. Dreams are more than just symbolic stories about… Seek More

Divination Using Dreams

Ever notice you don’t choose the patterns in your dreams, but you can pretty much always recognize them? Somehow, the structure always seems familiar? They don’t reflect your thinking any more than your waking vision reflects how you think, or… Seek More

Practice of Oneiromancy

There are three basic styles of oneiromancy, just as there are three different fields of dream. There is the theurgic, where through contemplation of divinity and adoration of the presences of the God/Goddess, your dreams begin to take on the… Seek More

First Dreams

Today, we are talking about dreams. Not so much as experiences we have, as a process that is ongoing throughout our lives. A message from the world to our deepest selves, even if the signal is perhaps often too full… Seek More

First Spark of Consciousness
