Dream Incubation

Posted By admin on November 30th, 2009

Dream incubation is a ritual wherein a person is to sleep in a sacred place in hopes of cultivating a prophetic dream that should be shared with his or her people. This religious practice is usually done when someone seeks messages from higher beings. Dream incubation was popular long ago and nowadays, only a few groups of people are known to do it once in a while such as Greeks.

These days, dream incubation adapts a different meaning. Today, the technique is no longer used for contacting the gods but accessing your inner self, particularly your hidden creativeness. It was believed that due to the stressful lifestyle we are currently living in, our creativeness gets the backseat and eventually gets buried deep. In order to access this once-glowing creativeness, we now need to undergo dream incubation and see it using our dreams while sleeping. Some describes dream incubation as a period when you plant a seed to be harvested during sleep. It is most effective if you only think of one subject at a time during dream incubation. For experienced dream incubators, dreams can now be controlled according to their wants and needs invoking feelings of satisfaction and happiness.

Dreams and Literature

Posted By admin on November 13th, 2009

It was said that great compositions come from great, imaginative minds. True enough, poets, story tellers and even musicians almost always pick up an idea or two to create magnificent compositions in their dreams. In fact, some claim to have written a whole masterpiece just by vivid dreaming.

It’s a known fact that the imaginative ability of one’s mind comes from the subconscious side of the brain. It’s the side where everyday important and trivial activities are conceived and catalogued accordingly. Your deepest desires are locked and guarded in the subconscious mind as well while the conscious mind holds the key. Meanwhile, dreaming gives the opportunity for the subconscious mind to unleash and reveal itself to heart’s content. This must be the reason why imagination flies high while in dreaming state.

How Dreams Are Used In Chinese Medicine

Posted By admin on November 11th, 2009

We know that somewhere in between dreaming and reality, there’s bound to be a connection somewhere, although all points seem to be leading to dead-ends. To date, there is no existing, hard evidence or explanation on how dreams really work but indeed different cultures got their own views and beliefs on why they exist and how they can help the dreamer improve their way of living.

That’s one thing I like about dreaming. If you take a look and study how experts conclude the dreaming process, it’s always on the bright and positive side of things. If it is viewed as an omen or portent of bad things to come, it is deemed to be taken as a warning so that the dreamer can prepare for it, if not avoid the threatening danger. Because of these, dreams eventually are valued and appreciated, never shunned.

Knowing Your Chakras

Posted By admin on November 1st, 2009

Experts say that when your body’s chakras are well-balanced, you are leading a healthy life. In India, chakras are believed to be your body’s energy centers in which all seven should be properly nourished to attain higher level of consciousness. These seven chakras encompass the whole spine in which each chakra is the focal point that transmits, influence and govern energy to various parts of the body. Primarily, chakras are used in traditional Indian medicine but it was also believed to be a contributing factor when dreaming.

When imbalances occur between chakras, the feeling of discomfort and discontentment are instantly present within the person. It was said that when the chakra governing your heart is weak, the person may feel alone and heartbroken without any apparent reason. The same way as it can manifest in his or her dreams in which the chakra is conveying what should be done immediately. In New Age practices, colors represent each of the seven chakras.
