Extraordinary senses - Part 1

20 June 2012, 08:27

Extraordinary senses - Part 1

We have lost our ability to use extraordinary senses.

I do not only formulate my daydreams, hoping my wish to accomplish a goal will materialise, I also regard night time dreams as one of our innate senses we have buried under a lot of modern cynicism. We are moving towards normal, natural and organic - we have a golden opportunity to look at dreaming again.

The science of oneirology has made the following undisputed observations regarding dreams:

  1. Rapid-eye movement (REM) occurs when brain activity is high - resembling a state of being awake. It is during this period that the most vivid dreams occur.
  2. The duration of dreams vary from between a few second up to twenty minutes and lasts longer as the night progresses.
  3. People have an average of between 3-5 dreams per night. Everybody dreams every night.
  4. You remember a dream when you are awaken during the REM stage.
  5. It is a fact that everybody dreams every night. They might not remember it.
  6.  Dreams can occur during others stages of sleep.

Unfortunately these scientist do not delve a little deeper into the unknown.

On the other hand certain psychologists and counsellors use the dreams of their clients during talk therapy. Dreams are generally connected to the subconscious. What we are not able to access consciously comes forth during dreaming and costly appointments. Dreams occur when brain activity is high and outside interference at its lowest, could it be that our subconscious or even the unconscious is bringing something to our attention.

Subconscious lies just below the unconscious. It can be regarded as the consciousness' filing cabinet. We access telephone numbers, previous experiences, the past, etc. from these filing cabinets.

Unconscious is the dark place we bury traumatic experiences and things we would rather not remember. Carl Jung theorised that the unconscious keeps the un-integrated aspects of the personality (the shadow side) and the collective consciousness until we allow it to emerge.

Some dreams obviously sort a very full day's occurrences and images in manageable sectors and we can often recognise those by making links. There are dreams that might inform us about something we have consciously missed during our busy day. You also get prophetic dreams and those of us who have not experienced it, have the tendency to dismiss them. Other dreams give us a the opportunity to solve problems or enhance our creativity with beautiful and novel ideas. How many times have you woken up with an idea or a solution. Mind training principles give us exercises to awaken our unconscious. Dreams could be the tool that does just that for us.

Fortunately we can develop this sense like any other sense if we begin to recognise, appreciate and focus on this extraordinary sense. Once we trust the messages during dreamtime or develop confidence in our interpretation of our dreams we will have another tool to enhance our decision making. The next step is to use it.

I dream at night - wondering not only what brought about the images or what it might mean but sometimes I wake up feeling strong emotions. Dreamtime becomes a sphere where fools fear to tread but angels rush in.
