Being self responsible for state of mind; listening to intuition and unconscious.
For people involved in any form of personal growth, they occasionally have a dream in which some form of instruction is given as an aid to their unfolding. Such dreams are worth following as the unconscious has the ability to sift and consider our collective experience, and present what applies to our need.
Example: ‘While recovering from a major operation and experiencing enormous pain I dreamt my father—dead—appeared standing at the end of the bed, and he said in a very matter of fact voice, “Think of five pink bouquets.” My father would never have used those words, so the scene impressed itself on me. I therefore woke and tried to visualise the five bouquets. I managed to get three in a row, four, but I could not manage five until I had formed them into a diamond with one in the middle. When I achieved that my pain subsided, and did so each time I used the image—why I do not know’ (Ken S). Ken’s experience suggests a psychosomatic effect from his dream-proposed meditation. Such meditations often show ways to alter character attitudes or help find strength to make necessary changes in life.
1- Interpreting the act of meditation will depend on whether the dreamer meditates in real life. In someone who does, it will suggest a discipline that is helpful to the dreamer putting him or herself in touch with intuition and spiritual matters. In someone who does not, it may indicate the need to be more introverted in order to understand the necessity to be responsible for oneself.
1- Often on an unconscious level we are aware of the need to change consciousness or attitude, and to dream of meditating can highlight this for us. We can access the more creative, spiritual side.
2- The dreamer has to come to terms with discipline of a spiritual nature if he is to succeed in his spiritual goal.
If you dream of meditating, this represents objectivity, clarity, lucidity and a desire to become awake and conscious in the dream state. You are in an advanced level of -awareness, and are connecting with your infinite source of guidance, support, direction, and solutions.
As a discipline, meditation helps us to become more aware of changes in consciousness. It also has the effect of opening our minds to dreaming as a spiritual learning tool. After learning meditation, our dreams take on a different depth and clarity.
For instance, the mandala seen in dreams can become a gauge for spiritual progression.
(Psychological / emotional perspective) Often on an unconscious level we are aware of the need to change consciousness or attitude.
To dream of meditating, particularly when we first learn this art, can highlight this for us. We can access our more creative, spiritual side and thus mandala and mantra become second nature, both asleep and awake.
(material aspects) Interpreting the act of meditation will depend on whether we meditate in real life. In someone who does, it will suggest a discipline that is helpful, putting them in touch with intuition and spiritual matters. In someone who does not, it may indicate the need to be more introverted in order to understand the necessity to be responsible for oneself.
