Like a seed, the dream is a container of potential filled with the code of creation. It carries the cipher of the past and a blueprint for the future. Like the sprouting of a seed, each dream offers us a chance to wake up from a long, deep sleep into a new reality. If we are patient gardeners, we can release tremendous growth and expansion from tending our dreams. -Victoria Rabinowe

DREAMS OF THE FATHER: A TEN MINUTE DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISE

Dreams about fathers are often about authority, traditional values, religious philosophy, and wisdom. They can be about will power, a warlike spirit or the ability to be strong. Father dreams can focus on responsibility, discipline and domination.
A mythic father figure might represent intellect, reason, action, power, energy, assertiveness, fortitude, courage; or a need for safety, guidance, support protection and security.
Conversely, the father figure can represent aggressiveness, righteousness, judgment, punishment, betrayal or anger. The father figure can discourage our attempts at independence. He can undermine our self reliance and self esteem by making us submissive or putting constraints on our autonomy.
Write a letter to yourself. If every aspect of the father image is an aspect of yourself, how have you fathered yourself?

A GREENING TREE BEING: A 10 MINUTE JOURNAL MEDITATION

From my Seminar and Workshop Series:: JUNG, THE RED BOOK AND THE INNER JOURNEY ©2012
with Dr. Florian Birkmayer
ImageACTIVE IMAGINATION
In the desert the solitary is relieved of care and therefore turns his whole life to the sprouting garden of his soul…
I look down at myself. I am fully covered in green leaves, which spring from my body. A strange being grows through me. 
I am a laughing being of the forest, a leaf green daimon, a forest goblin and prankster, who lives alone in the forest…neither disposed nor indisposed toward men, full of mood and chance, obeying an invisible law and greening and wilting with the trees, neither beautiful nor ugly, neither good nor bad, merely living, primordially old and yet completely young, naked and yet naturally clothed, not man but nature, frightened, laughable, powerful, childish, weak, deceiving and deceived, utterly inconstant and superficial…and yet reaching deep down, down to the kernel of the world.
SOLILOQUY: WRITE FOR TEN MINUTES
I am a greening tree being, who loves nothing but greening and growing…
I let the wind and distant cries and commotion of opposites blow calmly through my branches,
I want to exist from my own force, like the sun which gives light and does not suck light….I recall my solar nature and would like to rush to my rising…

THE POT OF GOLD: A DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISE

Posted in DREAM JOURNAL EXERCISES, QUOTES with tags , , , , , on March 13, 2012 by dreamingarts
 Legend tells us that if you catch a leprechaun, he must take you to the ancient treasure that is guarded in a pot hidden at the end of the rainbow. 
Catching the meaning of a dream is like catching a leprechaun. You must be creative to capture it.
Use found images to explore the paradoxical tricks in your dream.
Search for mischievous, diversionary dream pranks as well as the treasure hidden at the end of your dream’s ethereal rainbow.
Let unexpected things happen. 
Is your dream a vanishing pot of deceptive, insincere nonsense or the golden treasure trove of insight and understanding?
 
It is by going down into the abyss
that we recover the treasures of life. 
Where you stumble,
there lies your treasure. 

Joseph Campbell
