Greetings Dear Readers,
A little known fact is that ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) does dream analysis. For every type of organ system imbalance there are corresponding dream elements that can help you understand your health better and confirm a diagnosis. Ancient Classic texts such as ‘Simple Questions’ and ‘Spiritual Axis’ reveal the dream meanings. What do your dreams suggest?
Some people can’t remember their dreams. The good news is this situation can be reversed. First of all, commit to dream recall. Secondly, set the intention to remember dreams. Next get a notebook which you will designate as your dream journal and place it beside your bed along with a pen and a bedside lamp. Next you ask to remember your dreams. You can trigger your subconscious by starring at an object every time you ask for dreams. Before you go to sleep you can say, stare at your lamp or your dream journal and tell yourself “I am remembering my dreams”. Keep up until you see results.
It’s recommended that you write down your dreams as soon as you wake up. Some of my dreams are scratched down in really big sloppy writing that I did in the dark in the middle of the night. When recording dreams, try to stay somewhat in the dream state by staying in bed with eyes still closed, lights still out. Stay in that relaxed alpha brain wave state without thinking about your day ahead. With eyes closed, bring the dream images to mind, go back into the dream plot and record all the various elements of what happened, the sights, sounds, smells, objects, characters, emotions, geography. As much detail as possible. I will write more on how to use dreams as intuitive guides. The point here is that you are writing an incrediable auto-biography of your subconscious mind. The dreams do it for you, all you have to do is record it. Later you can read your dreams and begin to notice patterns over time.
