The Dream Gate

 

Here we find guidance for the creation of a dream dairy and an introduction to the basic dream symbols (archetypes).

 

Why should we observe dreams?

By observing our dreams we gain knowledge about ourselves and come to a higher state of mind. In combination with other exercises like f.e. meditation we can achieve a day like consciousness while dreaming (lucidity).

One will never understand dreams by studying some sort of dream dictionary. If one really wants to understand dreams then one has to try harder than that. Firstly, it is necessary to understand how the dream images are created by the subconscious. There are some general laws. If these laws of the symbol structures are understood, it is quiet easy to interpret the dream.
