If we spend a third of our lives asleep, why tf not optimize our dream time ?
since ancient civilization the act of dreaming was considered supernatural communication and the art of interpretation was held in high regard.
the Sumerians of Mesopotamia understood dreams to be prophetic, so kings would base decisions of expansion and battle on dream interpretation alone. in ancient Egypt, priests were given the mighty role of dream interpretation. in classical antiquity the ancient greeks constructed temples for which they would incubate dreams with the aim to cure the sick. in Greco-Roman medicine, divine dreams from the healing god Asclepius were among many available sources of medical knowledge.
fast-foward to modern times, with the portable Freud’s “Interpretation of Dreams” and a simple google search at our fingertips, we have a widespread network dream interpretation available. so why isn’t this the norm ?
if you cultivate a daily practice of lucidity in your waking life, it will trickle over into your sleeping life. to become lucid in a dream, in other words, to become aware that you are in a dream, empowers you to experience, heal, learn, explore in ways that are unavailable in waking life. as our subconscious mind speaks in metaphors, symbols and feelings, our dream time is a phenomenal time to directly communicate with the mind, to understand and reprogram, and you guessed it… shadow work!
