DREAMS -- new blog/website forthcoming

Hi, All.

For the last few years, I've been using this blog as a creative and sometimes personal outlet for musings on the esoteric and metaphysical. It's been a great relief to know that I could come here and share thoughts and creative works with all of you. Even better have been your exchanges, dreams, and stories. It's been such fun! We all grow from those interactions, methinks, which only further convinces me that we're questing through life for that something familiar that we cannot always name.

Since we're pilgrims on a shared path, it makes sense for me to expand this site's original purpose and make it more communal and interactive. I want it to serve and help all of us as we make our way down our respective red roads.

I also want to stay in the flow of what's feeding me these days, which is DREAMS.  There's some big mojo energy there for me and fed, methinks, by my work with a local Jungian. Maybe that energy for dreams is there for you, too. Think about it -- if it's true that we each dream between 5-7 times a night, then that's at least 35 dreams a week that we can sift through to find nuggets of wisdom about our lives. I don't know about you, but I am certainly open to additional insight into my life! The dreamscape, according to some researchers, is one aspect of ourselves which is not affected by the ego. The ego can't touch this terrain, which makes it even more compelling to mine and journey through. 

It's my intention to have a new blog dedicated solely to the topic of dreams up and running within the next two weeks. I plan to include all sorts of resources, articles, links, and techniques to help you remember your dreams, share them, and learn from them. I invite guest writers or those willing to share dreams with the collective community in hope of gaining new insight. What would interest you? What would you like to see? What workshops would help you expand your own personal growth? 


I am INTERESTED!!! Send your thoughts my way! 


So I DREAM!

I find dreams fascinating. I try to write down those that I can recall (kept in a file on my PC), and sometimes do a drawing in a book. But I can never work out the meanings, the imagery is always very odd. It's all very strange.

I've been thinking about this, a bit more...

I haven't actually researched dream interpretation blogs, though I am aware of just a couple, which are, in my opinion, not very good.

They seem to take, what Jung refers to as the 'kitchen sink dream book' approach. That doesn't work. It's not convincing. I'm not convinced by blogs that glibly interpret every dream as some wonderful personal transformation.

But I do think there is a lot of scope for trying to do something serious and original.

We await with interest...

Hi, Robur.

I'm with you about the dreams. I don't always understand my dreams meanings but after working with them for a bit, truths do rise. This is my hope for the blog. It don't want the kitchen sink dream book approach. I want to employ Jungian techniques to solve the nightly riddles the Dream Maker sends us. Much of this can be done by working our associations. Additionally, I think it can also be helpful for others to weigh in on the dreams by saying, "Well, if it were my dream, I might feel..."

Robert Moss often uses that technique and I think it's a good one. Like you point out, not every dream is a BIG one. However, I believe that all dreams have some wisdom in them.

How do you think this blog would best serve others? What do you hope to see? Learn? Discover?
