4 Reasons to stop taking your dreams lying down–Robert Moss returns to the Ask Dr. dream show!
Every time I talk to Robert Moss, I have a mind-altering, dream-altering, even life- altering experience. Besides being one of my favorite guests, and he never fails to raise the level of my appreciation for the phenomenon of dreaming.
I’ve heard some refer to this time we’re living in as The Great Quiet -a time where we’ve been more internal than before.
In spite of the fact that many of us are taking baby steps to venture outside our homes, among the socially distant people, it’s still the season for dreaming. If there ever was a great time to become more masterful dreamers, now’s the time.Join me on the show today and buckle up, it’s going to get real! Here’s a preview of what Robert Moss (bestselling author of 12 books on dreaming, including my favorite, Dreaming the Soul Back Home, and The Secret History of Dreaming) will share with us today:Most human societies until relatively recently have understood that dreaming is important for four reasons above all:First, dreams give us access to sources of wisdom beyond the ordinary mind – to the God or Goddess you can talk to, to the ancestors, to the animate powers of nature, to the greater Self. “It is an age-old fact,” declared the great psychologist C.G.Jung in his last major essay, “that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions.”Second, dreams show us the future, in ways that can contribute to the well-being and survival of whole communities. They not only rehearse us for events that will happen; they show us possible futures. If we are able to harvest and clarify the information, and then take appropriate action, we can improve the odds on manifesting a desirable future event or avoiding an unwanted one.
Third, dreaming is medicine, in several senses. In somatic or prodromic dreams, we are shown what is happening inside the body and symptoms it could develop in the future. So, dreams can be a source of vital, even life-saving, diagnosis.
Forth, dreaming you can travel without leaving home, not a small thing in the time of pandemic. You can come back with the memories of a delicious vacation. You can rendezvous with friends and loved ones far away, since dreaming is social as well as personal.
Dreaming is an essential human activity, as essential as sex or sleep. If we have lost contact with our dreams, the Iroquois say, we have lost a vital part of our souls. Dreams are important and useful for everyone.
