To continue learning about dream magic, we must be mindful and practical.
If you have not yet established and practiced the principles from Part One, this article will provide information about dream magic but it may be more difficult to implement.
In order to truly benefit from the teachings of dream magic, it is important to understand the concepts and apply them in your own life.
Dream Exemplification for Objectification
In Part One, we learned how to recall our dreams and become more aware of our states of being. In this section, we will learn how to use these principles to generate and question our reality.
With these newly acquired abilities, we have certainly crossed great plains of destitute. However, dream recall and induction represent the surface platform for the iceberg. In this section, we will explore various ways to interpret the symbols and images from our dreams.
The goal of this article is to help readers understand the basics of dream interpretation so that they can communicate more effectively with their subconscious selves. By understanding dream language, we can gain insights into our true nature and find new ways to solve problems in our lives.
The first step in understanding something is practicality. When employing a new idea, we must free our mind of preconceived notions and observe without prejudice. Overcomplicating the process of interpretation is often the most potent force against our success.
It is important to thoroughly and pragmatically review our dream sequences in order to gain an unbiased understanding of what has happened. Here is a written draft that can be followed to help with this process.
1. Whole Tutelage
In this section, we will focus on creating a title for your dream that accurately reflects the details of the experience.
This is an important step since it can be used to help you remember and interpret the dream more easily.
Additionally, having a title for your dream allows you to explore its creative potential - don't limit yourself or feel constrained by what may seem obvious or expected. Be adventurous and see where your imagination takes you!
2. Sequence Summarization
When summarizing the main plot from dream sequences, it is essential to avoid interpreting them from a first-person perspective.
This can lead to misinterpreting the overall dream premise and instead we should use an observer stance, which means interpreting the events in a third-person point of view and removing any “I” references.
This will help us better understand the true meaning behind our dreams by looking at them objectively rather than subjectively.
Additionally, creating this summary helps us form connections between themes throughout our dream sequence and draw out deeper insights that may have been missed otherwise.
3. Sequential Plot
In order to create a story from a dream, it is important to break the dream down into smaller, manageable pieces.
By doing this, you can create a sequence of events that makes sense and tells a cohesive story.
When recording your dream, it is important to make note of the characters involved in the dream.
Who are they? What do they look like? Do you recognize them from other aspects of your life, or are they strangers?
Are there any recurring characters that appear in multiple dreams? Next, take into account the time frame and environment of the dream - when does this occur and where is it taking place?
s there a specific setting or scene that stands out to you in particular during this event? Identify any conflicts present as well as any key points or messages that stand out to you throughout the experience.
This can help inform what symbols may be present within your dream. Additionally, consider how these elements evolve over time - start by looking at what occurs at the beginning and end of your dream.
4. Dream Emphasis
For the final step, we must conclude with simple questions which require specific answers:
- What emotions and feelings are represented in the dream experience?
- What are opposing forces at work in your life? What forces are working together? And which forces are in a state of chaos?
- The dream may present a solution or a question, and obstacles or decisions may be involved
- What are the most prominent symbols in your dream? (numbers, people, animals, structures, places, memories)
- What is happening outside of your presence? What are you observing? Where is the emphasis placed?
Involved Observance Within Dream State
As practitioners of dream magic, we must assume that our dream selves are more confident and capable of making decisions than our real selves. However, this also means they are more likely to make rash choices and less aware of the consequences.
Our dreams often reflect our inner desires and needs, which we may be suppressing during our waking hours. This suggests that day and night, and dream and life, are two sides of the same coin.
During our dreams, we have the chance to explore and develop the skills and abilities we have in our waking life, but often take for granted.
You can practice dream magic just as effectively while you're asleep as you can while you're awake. In fact, it may even be more effective.
To improve our ability to notice things during dreaming, we can reframe the questions from the "Dream Emphasis" category:
- What situations and circumstances trigger our dream state?
- What are our emotions, feelings, desires and beliefs telling us?
- How are we behaving in our dreams? Are we reacting to what's happening around us, or are we proactive?
- Are we actively participating in our dreams, or simply observing them from a distance?
- What is our role in dream magic, and what are we trying to achieve?
- How similar is our behavior in a dream state to our waking life?
Now that we have covered how to recall and interpret dreams, we are moving on to new techniques for understanding them.
In this segment, we will review the symbolism and imagery associated with possession and influence in dreams.
In the dream world, symbols can encode meaning and messages. They may be difficult to understand at first, but we can learn to interpret them. This can be useful in understanding our dreams.
In order to achieve practical results from our dreams, it is essential to understand and analyze the symbols that appear in them. Our plans often contain hidden meanings that we are not consciously aware of, but which can be accessed by our reactive selves. This understanding of symbolism can help us to achieve our goals in life.
When we start to interpret our dreams, we realize that there is a connection between our everyday lives and our dream selves. We begin to see that the two states are actually one and the same. This understanding can help us to make sense of our dreams and what they mean for us.
Complacent Free Associative Psychoanalysis
The psychoanalytical community widely embraces the principle of free association. This technique is based on the idea that the mind has the ability to interpret information freely.
When we explore hypnosis, we can let go of our pre-developed thoughts and beliefs, and tap into the unlimited potential of symbolism and induction.
This section explains how to use free association to interpret your dreams. First, you'll need to record any dream symbols that you're sure of. Then, you can start free-associating words and phrases with these symbols to figure out what they mean.
It is important not to think too much about what you are doing while performing dream magic and to just let things happen. All ideas are welcomed and should not be restricted by importance or value. The symbolism in your expression will begin to uncover meaning during this process.
There are other resources we can use for dream interpretation besides free association, but we must be careful not to let written material influence our thinking too much.
If you are comparing scientific and psychoanalytical approaches to your interpretations, the latter is of more value.
Once we understand the symbolism in our dreams, we can revisit the potential hidden in different stages of the dream sequence. By inputting newly determined values and asking questions, we can uncover more meaning in our dreams.
- What do the new insights into meaning mean for a certain dream experience?
- In order to interpret the meaning of a dream, it is necessary to look at the symbols within the dream and determine what they represent. If the meaning of the symbols conflicts with the interpretive image of the dream, it may be necessary to reevaluate the meaning of the dream.
- Will the training change after replacing symbols?
- When you uncover a new meaning that is derivative of previous acknowledgment, what new motive and direction does that give you?
- How do you respond to the meaning of things during the day, compared to how you respond to them while dreaming?
- What is the role of interpretation in dream magic, and how does it respond to various real-life pragmatic questions? Does the meaning of a dream act in response to a problem as a solution?
Now that we have covered the basics of dreaming, we can move on to part three, discussing actual dream magic and how it can be used to communicate with others.
