Incubating Dreams

Share:

We all have the ability to dream imaginatively and vividly, and there are many ways in which we can encourage our dream lives to blossom.  We can experience many different types of dreams, which can provide us with great insight and guidance in respect of our daily lives.  Many individuals experience lucid dream states; which means that when they are dreaming, they are consciously aware that they are dreaming; and can potentially influence and guide the direction of their dreams. This can be very helpful, particularly in situations where someone is having an anxiety dream; Because it gives the dreamer the opportunity to face and work through their fears. But, by far the most powerful of dream techniques, is the one in which we are able to ‘incubate’ a dream.

 

What is incubating a dream:

Dream incubation is a practiced technique of learning to “plant a seed” in the mind, in order for a specific dream topic to occur. By far the most common reason for doing this is problem solving.

Though many people may think that the thoughts and idea’s they have are drawn from themselves; in truth they are for the main part a product of the information and knowledge acquired through their outer life and exterior sources. From our teachers, parents, books, the many varied opinions of others and our personal life experiences. Travel also broadens the horizons, extending our knowledge far beyond that of the familiar boundaries of home.

In spite of this wonderful abundance of information and sources of help and guidance that is available to us, there are still many things we do not know. Particularly in respect of ourselves. Though there are professionals in the field of counselling and therapy, who are deemed to be qualified in helping us understand the complex workings of the mind and emotional state. Ultimately, they are simply using a template for all, rather then knowing what is right for us as individuals. If only people would realise, that they have within their reach, a guide, a teacher, a therapist, a counsellor who can help them better then anyone else;  And that is ‘the inner therapist, guide and teacher’ within.
