Dreamplay -Dreams and Symbols
Dream work is the
"Royal Road"to the Unconscious
In the Dream our souls are awake. We
live a symbolic life. If we are truly conscious we know that we are living
an Archetypal Life. We are Souls experiencing life through the medium of
being "human beings."
Do we really know what Life is? What is
Life and what is a dream?
Like in the movie What the #%*& Do We
Are we people dreaming
of being butterflies or butterflies dreaming that we are humans?
Do we even know if we are alive?
Everything is relative,related to something else. Sometimes I think that
we live or experience our lives backwards in time. Time is not linear.
Time is a spiral moving up and down,like
I believe that we are given all the
information we need to figure it out, in our own unique ways.
Each soul's piece of information is
valuable experience to the One, the Universe, the Great Mystery. All the
signs and symbols are right out there ,right in front of our noses.Can't
see the forest for the trees?
We just need to be able to perceive, to
feel, to have some time to reflect. To access our inner knowing. It is
becoming increasingly more difficult in the 21st Century to be able to
access private, quiet reflective time. We are being pushed to move
faster,do more, the world is increasingly more and more complicated.
The Glory of God/dess is within us! We
already have everything we need inside of us right now. There is nothing
to do but remember who you really are. "You are Allready enlightened."
Guru Namgyal Rinpoche used to repeat to his students.
Feel the signs, the symbols, the messages.
Your soul is manifest everywhere around you, in nature, in inanimate
objects, your neighbours, other countries. Your Self is in everything you
see and experience. You Self is in everyone and thing which you encounter,
it is everything you perceive of. There is Only One Self. One Source.
There is no actual other.
The Buddhists would say there is no actual
Your Soul is always talking to you. Your
Angels are everywhere around you. You are at the Source, you have always
been with the Source,you always will be with Source. You are Source. You
have never even left Paradise, that was just a trick story. You are Light,
Love,Harmony. You are perfected Be-Ing. I am that I am.
Freudian slips and other kinds of
For example, while I was writing this I
intended to write "your Soul's piece of information. What I originally
wrote was your Soul'd piece of Information... Then there was no mistake,
no accident.. actually there was inspiration. What is it
called when we exchange items, for value as we do everyday in this world
of commerce? The "profane world."We use the symbols of money, paper money,
to exchange value for what it is we want to obtain. When we conclude
a purchase, the exchane of money for something else, that commodity is
Sold. It is Soul'd. Even money is a symbol of Soul. There is no duality
reality. When we live in the
Archetypal world we see the apparent duality, and we go beyond it, into
There is only one song being played on the
station. It is the Song of the Universe. The Yoni verse. It is sacred
poetry. It's a story. Being lived and experienced as it unfolds,as we
unfold it, as it unfolds through us, in this Dreamstory we call
"Life." It lives us.
Be aware of Synchronicities
A term coined-there's that money again by
C.J. Jung to describe the apparent inter-relatedness of everything. No
such thing as chance or co-incidence. Someone said that co-incidence is
911 as a Dream,as Reality TV and as a
The most obvious, real and undeniable
intersection of the Archetypes of the
Tarot into our Daily lives in a most psychic, emotional and
physically real way occurred on Sept 1, 2001.
As everyone knows the World Trade Centre
was hit by "terrorist" planes causing the Twin Towers to collapse.
In the Tarot, the 16th Trump or Major
Arcana Image is that of the Tower, the Blasted Tower, crumpling in ruins,
as humans jump out of it.
I believe as we are impelled by these
unique times to wakeup, that the Synchronicities of Archetypal Symbols are
intruding and manifesting in our Lives in an undeniably REAL dramatic
way. Talk about Reality TV!
Seeing Life as a Dream, a disturbing
Dream, a Nightmare, a shock to your Psyche is needed to push one out of
one's "normal" sleeping awake state if we so choose to create it that way.
We must take responsability for collectively unconsciously creating each
act of atrocity, benevolence etc. as it occurs inthe World. We always
have choice. Free will is the currency of the Universe.
The Tower is ruled or symbolized by the
planet Mars,God of War, action,desire, male sexuality, aggression.
There are no bad or Negative Tarot cards. Only lessons and opportunities
for Growth. The smashing of The Tower in the most Positive sense
signals or symbolizes the awakening of the Consciousness. The Tower is
struck by Lightning, fire at its' top, traditionally. The spiritual fire
through a shock, awakens it. Bingo!
The light goes on. This is the shock of
waking up. I was discussing this with a friend of mine the other day. He
had just returned from spending 10 days in New York City. I said, well if
the Tower was the sign of 2001, the next Symbol
is # 17 The Star, the Symbol of Aquarius, the Human Star, as Vessel
and conduit of the Divine, usually depicted as the Goddess pouring the
waters of consciousness from her Starry firmament onto the Earth. Aquarius
symbolizes humanitarian will, as opposed to ego consciousness. Aquarius
honours freedom, growth and individuality. Is this where we are
going to next?
But then I said, if we are moving
from the Top of the Tree of Life from the Source into Earth, then we move
to the previous Archetype, Tarot Card number
15 - the Devil, illusion, matter, Saturn/Capricorn,
So we are seeing in the world all the
Corporate Greed, the Patriarchal Power-over Archetype-the scapegoating of
others, as bad, as demons, as the Devil. The witch hunts continue but in a
new guise. The purpose of the Devil or material reality is to help us to
see our shadows, our own dark side, and ultimately to free us from falling
into the Illusion.
What the devil is the Devil?
The Devil as a concept was created by the
Catholic Church as a power over maneouvre, it was a control mechanism to
disempower women, Wiccans, pagans, midwives, herbalists, wise women. The
Church accused the ancient worshippers of the Earth Religion who
were/are Goddess worshippers as being in league with the devil. They were
right in one sense, they did worship the Devil but in pagan terms the
Devil is the ancient God Pan-the masculine creative principle,the
Goddesses consort. The Church went against this powerful creative
masculine archetype because it- the Church- embodied the Masculine
Destructive power. There is negative evil energy that exists. The ones who
called themselves "Holy" and accused others of being "Devil worshippers"
were in fact the ones worshipping the
Devil. Lucifer's name means "Light Bringer." We interpret the Devil
as being Dark, evil. Lucifer's archetypal task was to seperate out
from God, through pride or arrogance. Someone had to do take on that task.
For it is the underlying nature of this reality to experience duality in
order to get back home.
And on the journey, as we are now
experiencing The Devil and are shifting down the Tree of Life we then come
to Tarot Trump # 14 called
Temperance traditionally and in the Thoth Tarot, which
I use, it is called Art. It is very complex
card, it means Alchemy or "the Great
Work." and it is the symbol of the Astrology sign of Sagittarius. The Art
card is a very in-depth symbol. It is the card of Alchemy,or
transformation inits essence. The changing by breaking down, and
coagulating matter-lead symbolically into Gold. The Alchemist were, and
still are apparently transmuting lead into actual Gold. But it is mainly a
psychological matter. By the way, the ATomic Symbol for Gold is
The homeopaths call Gold - Aum. Which is
the sacred Sound. The origin of everything, Gold. Aum =Gold. Literally. The Egyptians new this. Our ancient
ancestors were more clearly and telepathically in touch with everything on
Take the symbols literally.
Hollywood is the biggest symbol
maker of all. It is both prescient, and propagandist at the same time.
Devout Muslims were forbidden to see movies. I discovered this in Algeria
many years ago. They believed that you don't mimic God,you don't capture
and replicate God's images, you don't manipulate that. You are playing
God, by mimicking God's work. The Jews have a similar belief about images,
as do most "primitive" or Indiginous peoples. Hollywood manipulates
andfeeds us images, prophetic images.
Working with Dreams: How To
A Dream Journal
Keeping a dream journal is
absolutely fundamental and necessary if you want to work with and access
knowledge about your own Psyche, and health. Some people like to use tape
recorders with voice activations beside their beds, so if even half
asleep, they can speak their dreams and have them aped for later
reference. If you intend to pay attention to your dreams, to your own
Unconscious, it is just like any other relationship. Your dreams, the
Archetypal figures, the memories, the storehouse of your Soul will open up
to you, revealing all the jewels you could ever want in your life.
Dreams can give you information from many levels-physical,
emotional,psychic, and prophetic.
Give your dream a
Watch the symbols. Be aware of repetitive
symbols. Dreams often speak in puns. No one can really interpret a dream,
for you. I beleive that you can,and with help get to the "felt sense" of
what a dream is about on your own.Ask yourself, what's this all about? And
wait for your body, an emotion to arise and make associations from
My Dream Journal-Examples:
I dream I am in a supermarket, everything
is in chaos, things are melting all over the floor. The supermarket is
full of garbage and there is no food on the shelves. People look very sad
Reflections on Supermarket
I believe that this is a prophetic dream,
or one possible future. Timing with dreams is the most difficult to
ascertain as time is an ever present shift of possibilities created out of
the minutae of our every thought multiplied by quintillions of choices.
I predict that there
will be serious food shortages in 2007 due to the New World Order's
takeover of oil and gas resources and the public's lack of knowledge about
how much resources there are available. Unless some incredible new
technology comes whizzing down the information highway and enough people
wake up fast... Also the weather due to HAARP and all the pollution
already and Gaia's consciousness may prove to be the wake up call.
Nov. 5 2004
I look at my own vagina. I enter it's
sacred Space. It is abright blood red and I enter its' cavernous space
with ribbed vaults like a Gothic Church.
Reflections on Vagina Dream:
I enter my own womb space. I am in the
Holy of Holilies. I am at the Centre Void of my own Feminine existence. I
am at Home.
