Dreams: How to probe your nighttime images. An Explosion of Being: An American Family’s Journey into the Psychic.
Everybody dreams but not everybody remembers them. The sleep state is your direct linkage to the paranormal and the world of spirit. You can capitalize on that linkage if you so desire. In the very limited space of this appendix, we can only touch the surface of how to do this, but the following concise list should be of help:
- When you wake up in the morning, wait before arising and think about any dreams you might have had. If even bits and pieces filter through, get up and enter that information in your notebook. If you are pushed by time, use whatever cryptic scrawl or abbreviations you wish, but write it down.
- If you don’t remember dreams very well or if you wish to remember more than you usually do, give yourself the repeated suggestion, just before going to sleep, that you will increase your dream recall.
- If a very vivid dream awakens you, get up and record whatever you can remember, otherwise it could well be lost the next morning. If you’re too groggy to write, use a tape recorder.
- Through setting your alarm clock sometime in the middle of the night, you may be able to interrupt a dream artificially and remember its contents.
- When recording dreams, see if you can remember these kinds of things:
Ψ Are you actually participating, watching yourself, watching others? Who else is involved? Are they living or dead? Are they known to you?
Ψ Are you yourself or someone else?
Ψ What events occur within the dream?
Ψ What is said?
Ψ What kind of emotions are you feeling during the dream?
Ψ Are there any particular sounds or smells that you can recall?
Ψ What kind of clothes are you and others wearing?
- After each dream, or each week of dreams, consider what the meanings they may hold for you. All dreams, in our opinion, have a layered set of meanings, and all are valid within certain contexts. Many valuable books have been written about dream interpretation, but they often cast dreams in symbolic concrete that may not always be fully correct or thoroughly useful. What we are saying is that you and only you are the best interpreter of your dreams.
