The Natural Dreamer
by Sr. Oalimn
The first step is to find out what your abilities are when it comes to dreaming. I like to call them stages of impressions. These will vary dramatically from person to person. The best way to determinine where you are in these stages is to analyze yourself. For example: Are you the kind of person who can never remember your dreams? Can you not recall ever dreaming at all? Or do you recall your dreams but never have been able to achieve lucid dream state? Ask yourself what you have achieved in your dreams and make a list. Than make another list of things you would like to see yourself achieving in the dream state. For example:
From my example you can put together your own list. Once this has been done, then it is possible to move on to the different techniques used to achieve your desired effect.
For some time now, I have wanted to write about dreams and how they effect our daily life. What was very important to me was to gather enough information from my own analysis of dreaming and speak to various individuals on the subject. I wanted to make sure that everything I might convey about dreaming was true and accurate to my own knowledge of the subject. I have not been quite satisfied with what is on the book shelves concerning this matter so I began my own exploratory process into dreamland.
I plan to continue with this dream series in the future issues of The Scarlet Letter. I urge you to please send any of your dream questions to the Scarlet Woman Lodge. I will respond to them and coordinate them with my article. Of course I will leave all correspondents anonymous. Let us begin our journey into the world of dreams. See you there!
