Active Dreaming, Journeying Beyond Self-Limitation to a Life of Wild Freedom

Practical Magic for Living the “Life of Your Dreams

Active Dreaming is a way of being fully of this world while maintaining constant contact with another world, the world-behind-the-world, where the deeper logic and purpose of our lives are to be found.

Active Dreaming offers three core areas of practice: talking and walking our dreams to bring energy and guidance from the dreamworld into everyday life; shamanic lucid dreaming; and conscious living.

Active dreamers are choosers. They learn to recognize that whatever situation they are in, they always have choice. They choose not to buy into self-limiting beliefs or the limited models of reality suggested by others.

Active dreamers learn to grow a dream of possibility, a dream strong enough to take them beyond fear and despair to a place of freedom and delight.

The Dreaming

July 31, 2013 on 11:31 am | In Dream Types | 2 Comments

Set in the untamed landscape of mid-nineteenth century Australia, The Dreaming is a rich and potent tale of hidden passion and broken taboo.

Australia, 1871—Following her mother’s sudden death, Joanna Drury sets sail from India and arrives in Melbourne to claim the property left to her by her mother—and to trace the mysteries of her family’s past.

From her first steps on shore, Joanna becomes entangled with a lost boy who leads her to the fascinating Hugh Westbrook. She agrees to look after the child in exchange for Hugh’s help in finding her inheritance. But she falls deeply in love with Hugh and with life at his sheep station, Merinda.

When strange nightmares begin to plague her—the same that tormented her mother—Joanna starts to notice the Aborigines’ strange reaction to her. Delving into Australia’s past, she discovers the tragic events that have marked her family’s destiny and her own life, events that happened long ago in the time the Aborigines call “the Dreaming.”

Full of intriguing historical detail, Wood’s compelling story brings the clash of immigrant and Aboriginal cultures to stunning life, capturing the danger, mystery, and romance of an emerging country.

Summer Dreams, Winter Dreams

July 31, 2013 on 10:32 am | In Fiction & Folklore, History and Beliefs, Interpreting Dreams, Musings | No Comments

In North America we are about to enter the dog days of summer. If you haven’t dreamed of and longed for a swimming pool in your backyard before, you may be about to, especially if you do not have air conditioning.

In the Southern Hemisphere, though, it is mid winter. In that case you may be cold and dreaming of tropical climes with warm sand and crystal clear waters.

A friend of mine moved to Peru a few years ago. It was hot in Houston, where she lived, so it was hard for her to imagine that it would be chilly in Cuzco. So she didn’t take enough cool-weather clothes.

Worse, it turns out that most apartments in Cuzco do not have heat. She dreamed of tropical islands and warm ocean waters all winter. Then in the summer she moved to the Peruvian Amazon tropical jungle, where it was hot and steamy.

You don’t have to move to the Andes mountains to be cool in the summer. Above Ground Swimming Pools can be installed for probably much less money than you think. And if you move, you can take your pool with you.

If you live in the Southern Hemisphere, now is a great time to install a pool. It can be in place in as little as two days. Then you’ll be ready to go when the weather warms up again.

When you have a pool, you do tend to spend a lot more time outdoors. Unless you only swim at night, you and your family and guests should be careful about your sun exposure.

Kids tend to forget to reapply sun block. There are waterproof sunscreens now, though, so you don’t have to keep reapplying them all day, because they don’t rinse off in the water.

That’s important, because excessive exposure to the sun’s UV radiation can cause Melanoma Skin Cancer. Thank heavens for those new waterproof sunscreens.

When installing a pool, be sure to check for local rules and regulations. You may required to add a fence around the pool to keep neighbor children from getting into it without your knowing and potentially drowning.

A fence is a good idea anyway. It can provide privacy and also keep out neighborhood dogs like labradors and golden retrievers that love to swim.

Sadly many people cannot just relax and enjoy the warm weather, due to family problems: divorce, custody battles, delinquent child support or spousal support payments. That’s why we have Family Lawyers. They can help work out all sorts of family problems (and prevent nightmares).

So you can lounge by the pool in peace, dreaming of whatever takes your fancy.

Get Inspiration From a Vision Board

With the release of The Secret a couple of years ago, the law of attraction immediately became the new buzz term. The air waves were bombarded with experts on the talk show circuit giving their spin on this new phenomenon.

But the truth of the matter is that the law of attraction has been in existence since the Creation of time. For decades, many of us have been guided by this Spiritual principle as a natural way of living–written declarations, a picture of our dream car, home, svelte physique or a journal of our most heart-felt desires, posted in strategic places at work and home. We understood that what we focus on most we become–whether by imagination or visual image.

Three years ago, when people typically make New Year’s resolutions, I created a vision board of the wonderful things I desire to see more of in my life. I went through dozens of magazines I’d collected and cut out pictures, headings and quotes to create this imagery.

On it is a picture of a resort with a lounge chair on a white sandy beach and blue ocean, performers in their theatrical attire, a circle of hands (relationships), an exercise instructor, beautiful flowers, a grilled salmon meal on fine china, sparkling water, a Cathedral, an aquarium, books, gifts, a huge Cross and on and on it goes, with a large eagle’s eye at the center.

I pasted it all onto an 18″ x 36″ board and hung it on the wall in my office. Everyday that I walk into my office, I have a visualization of moments and things that have brought enjoyment to my life and inspire more for the future.

What do you want to experience more of in your life? I encourage you to create a vision board of what you want to see in more abundance. I don’t mean some magical wish list, but a life you help create with your “silent partner.” You might want to use a certain theme, a cause dear to your heart or overall life enrichment.

If you consider cutting and pasting to be a childish indulgence, then get your children involved! Place your vision board in a location where you will view it on a regular basis. Allow the visualization to be a constant reminder of the possibilities available to you. Let it inspire you on those difficult days and energize you more on your best days.

Take Action Challenge

Set aside a couple of hours this week to go through magazines in your home and office. Collect as many pictures, titles and quotes that appeal to your sense of meaning and fulfillment. Assemble them randomly on the board, with a center piece that conveys a special meaning to you. Have fun with it!

Naturopathic Health Care Is the Natural Way to Be Well

July 27, 2013 on 12:33 pm | In Musings, Taking Action | No Comments

Health is a complex concept. It includes both physical health and mental health, because the two are inextricably joined. It means more than just “not being sick.”

In ancient times, people understood that mind and body were one and that healing had many facets. While some conditions can be helped by a medicine, others cannot. Modern medicine sometimes forgets that.

Not every unhealthy condition can be cured with a drug. In fact, most modern diseases are complex conditions that require a change in lifestyle, diet and exercise to improve. That’s why alternative medicine has become so popular.

Naturopaths, for example, use standard medical diagnostics and tests, and modern pharmaceuticals when necessary. But they also provide a broad range of natural therapies to improve overall health and support the body in recovery from illnesses and conditions caused by stress or an unhealthy lifestyle.

At this point, some people may ask, “What is a naturopath?” A naturopath is a healthcare provider who practices naturopathy, form of healing that combines modern scientific knowledge and standard medical diagnostic tests and techniques with a wide range of natural, alternative therapies to get at the root cause of both acute and chronic illness.

In other words, naturopathy uses natural therapies and lifestyle changes whenever possible to create a real improvement in health, not just a temporary suppression of symptoms. The alternative therapy arsenal of a naturopath includes

- Botanical Medicine

- Diet and Lifestyle Changes

- Clinical Nutrition Supplementation and Injections

Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine

- Naturopathic Spinal Manipulation

- Homeopathic Medicine

- Hydrotherapy

 So when you want to work on getting and staying healthy, and you want to know how to prevent problems instead of just taking more and more prescription drugs, naturopathic medicine can help.

so you have to understand the moment to get the relevance of this picture.

alex and i were in the middle of watching "Waking Life" and took a break so he could smoke a cig. as we walked to the front door i made him stop so i could take this picture.

in the movie, the main character is advised to flip the lightswitches in the room if ever he can’t figure out if he is awake or dreaming. if he flips the switch and the lights won’t turn off, he is dreaming.

the closed, but unlocked door symbolizes all that this waking life will hold for us, if we choose to enter into that adventure.

…even if you "go" and just end up waiting… it was worth the journey.
