View Full Version : Shamanic Dreams

Hello dreamers, how is everyone doing?
Does anyone else here feel that the Western Psycho-Analytical approach to dreams is missing something really important? I definitely prefer the shamanic notion that when we dream we are opened up to the spirit realm, cast adrift in some kind of primordial ocean, but even that seems kind of vague doesn't it?
Specifically, what I was wondering was about your guy's experiences with Portals in dreams. Like, is dreamland a place that can be mapped similarly to the "physical universe" with its own laws and inhabitants? Or is all in constant flux... I mean I know "All is in constant flux" But that doesn't seem to stop earth dwellers from living in the same location for their whole lives, or building cities that you can find your way back to...

The more I sit in full-lotus the more being awake is like a dream and the more realistic my dreams become. I dream of the future and my best documented case was 3 years into the future -- a very specific dream that in no way could be a coincidence!
Energy work while awake is based on light healing and in the dream we experience this light healing in a stronger way -- connecting with our subconscious emotions.
While awake songs come to us. When we remember the words to the songs we realize that the words give a subconscious answer to our unfullfilled desires.
The book "The Haunting Melody" by Theodore Reik is based on this concept.
Dreams are just the subconscious expression of unfullfilled desires and the more we consciously resonate with the source of all desire -- the formless awareness -- the stronger we have a "vortex" into the future via our dreams.
Psychic music is very common in dreams. D. Scott Rogo researched psychic music as his focus.

This puts me in mind of dream themes in a way. In my dreams the theme is sometimes repetitive lacing in or around a like location. Although each dream is different, the theme and location are often linked. Yet sometimes only the theme is linked from dream to dream. This happened when for five years I was a bandit. Hooking up in these dreams with other bandits. Although we stole sparklies in different localities the theme was the same. Also the male bandits were always shirtless with white sweat pants and high top white tennis shoes. This was a constant. Odd as it sounds. These days I am having both theme and location. It is a job. My boss is the same lady every evening. We paint pictures in a gigantic warehouse. There are many of us. So in this example it is both theme and location. It is always the same warehouse, and we are always painting.

yes the theme of repetitive dreams is interesting. i keep on having dreams of moving my home and garden. i'm never sure where i am to live. even when i find a home;i'm not too sure if i'm where i'm supposed to be. i've had this dream recurring on a monthly basis for the past 6-7 years. sometimes i'll find a place and start planting things only to move on. strange.:eek:
