The Value of Dream Sharing

Hi All,

I would just like to share a quote that I came across recently,

"In a dream the inner world talks to the world of consciousness. Speaking in the ancient language of images and symbols, the unconscious tells its stories. Sometimes these stories describe conflicts, joys, or difficulties that are purely personal. They tell of childhood patterns, complexes or unresolved anger that have meaning only to the dreamer. But there are other dreams that express the collective song of the soul. They tell of the archtypal, mythic happenings which are both personal and universal. When these dreams are told within a group a deep sharing takes place. For then the spoken images resonate not just within the conscious ear of the listener, but also within the sacred spaces of the soul. Psyche speaks to psyche; heart listens to heart. A door is opened into the symbolic interior, into the world of the gods, and through this doorway a music is heard that echoes and re-echoes. It awakens distant memories of when we walked as children upon the shore of the great ocean of life. Just as a child hears the roar of the sea within a sea shell, so we hear in a dream the song of our deepest nature." This is an excerpt taken from Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee's book Catching the thread, Sufism, Dreamwork and Jungian Psychology.

Perhaps that is why throughout the ages writers, poets, composers, scientists, painters, sculpters, architects have been able to create masterpieces that have moved us deeply; because they were inspired by their deepest Self, the inspirations of their souls and shared those inspirations and soul images with us. Because they were true their Selves, they helped so many find inspiration their deeper natures, inspired by dreams.

Re: The Value of Dream Sharing

A wonderful post. It summaries many truths about the soul. And although it can not be found on an operating table, we all possess a soul.

Jung's association with the deeper psyche to that of the creative Self is well documented. What makes a creative art a masterpiece is often the universal language/message that the art {or music, sculptor, etc.} conveys. As abstract as if may be there is a recognition within the psyche to the universal message of the art. It is from the soul, both the work of art and the recognition. And the great thing about that is we all possess it.

But utilizing it is another story. Often it is only in our dreams that we realize the universal. If we are stuck in the ego centered world of material worth, the value of the universal message is often lost. Our dreams are not given attention and the waking life is so full of self{ishness} the muse is totally ignored. And then other vital aspects of the soulful world are also ignored. Can you image what the world will be like without art, or music, or creativity? I believe that is partially taking place, not so much because we do not appreciate the work from the soul but because we are so indebted to social duty we have no time for it. That is why it is so important for the inner journey to take place, to remind us of what makes us truly whole. Not material things, but the creative things that we produce from the soul. Self vs self{ishness}.
