Interesting facts about Australian Aboriginal culture

The Aboriginal people are the world’s most ancient living culture; they have occupied Australia for at least 50,000 years. By the time Captain Cook first encountered Australia; Aboriginal people were already living there in small settlements.

When Europeans began to settle in Australia over 200 years ago there were thought to be almost one million Aborigines. The Aboriginal people lived in clans; each clan had a spiritual connection with their region. These clans all had different languages or dialects and would carry out certain rituals and totemic gatherings on the land.

The Europeans moved to Australia and, to a certain extent, took over. They invaded the Aboriginal land and water resources but, worse again, brought with them foreign diseases. Half of the Aboriginal population were wiped out by diseases such as small pox and the flu due to them having no immunity.

The majority of Aborigines lived in the South and South East of Australia along the River Murray. The groups used to move around depending on the season; this is due to them being hunters and gatherers.

The Aboriginal people have a unique talent and ability to work with nature and live off the fat of the land, they were nomadic, thus travelling around in order to survive, and it is thought this unique ability is the reason for the length of their survival.

The Aboriginal people live by a legacy based on spiritual knowledge. They have a deep understanding of the land and are at one with the earth and nature. This knowledge of the land and spiritual world is brought together through rituals, art, dance, music and secret stories known as ‘dreamtime’.

Dreamtime is the Aboriginal story of all creation – how the world came to be. They believe that in the beginning spirits came to the earth and created people, living things and landforms. Australian landscape to them is a unique map of the spirits, their stories and journeys coming together as unique legends still being heard today.

Australia is an extremely diverse country with many different cultures and languages being spoken by the original Aboriginal people, also known as Indigenous Australians. Aboriginal heritage is not only about the history, rock art, spirituality, rituals and beliefs; it is a living, ongoing thing.

Music is a very special part of Aboriginal culture, as is body painting; both used for ceremonies and rituals. The didgeridoo, often associated with Australia, is also part of the native Aboriginal culture. This instrument is only played by male Aborigines and the females are happy to leave the playing up to the men.

We know about Aboriginal history from unique carvings found in Australia on rocks and bark, Aboriginal art is still regarded as an integral part of cultural life and is used to represent clans and identities.

Separation is an Illusion

September 9, 2013 on 2:53 pm | In Dream Symbols, History and Beliefs | No Comments

Carl G. Jung mentions in one of his books that we cannot separate father (spirit/male) and mother (matter/female). When we do, we deprive our self of our natural innate instincts.

We cannot separate mind/body from spirit. It is who we are and It is always there. It is our breath of life. It is the intelligence that keeps us alive. But we can create a feeling of separation. We can cover It up. We do this by totally projecting our five senses to the physical world alone without regard to our innate abilities, and believe that that is all there is.

We numb all our senses, that give us nudges, innate feelings and sensations, aha moments, and dream symbols, from our natural instinct of who we are, only focusing our attention to the external world, and truly believing in only our intellectual minds, that what we see is the only thing there is.

When we create this illusion of separation, we feel fear, lethargy, pain and disease. Spirit is hidden deep beneath these feeling but its Voice cannot be heard with all the clutter and noise. And even when spirit does surface, we conditionally ignore it. What happens when we ignore something?

Think of a sliver. It festers and turns into a big sore if we don’t do something about it. We can deny and try to cover spirit up for some time, but the repercussions are great. Spirit is always calling for our attention. It wants to speak to us. It wants to heal, guide and harmonize us naturally.

Energy does not cease to exist when it disappears from consciousness. When we choose to ignore spirit and focus on something else that we think may be more important in this physical world, It reappears in other forms because It must express Itself.

Neurosis, psychosis and physical diseases appear. These are symbolic warning signs of the illusion of separation. As Carl G. Jung states, “When whole countries avoid these warnings, and fill their asylums, becoming uniformly neurotic, we are in great danger.”

So if you find yourself doing the busyness thing to keep yourself unconsciously distracted from your innate nature, slow down and listen, and be with yourself a few times a day. It is a compassionate and comforting companion. You can learn a lot about yourself, and besides you’re always loved, accepted and understood.

Human’s Dream In History

August 13, 2013 on 7:31 pm | In History and Beliefs | No Comments

Ancient Dreams

Many scientists still wonder about the power of the subconscious mind. Thus, in lots of discussions, they focus on explain how we dream as we do. There are several theories explain this phenomenon.

Many people have been ostracized in their societies for having dreams that appeared to foretell a bleak future, while others have been elevated to a high status for being able to prevent disasters. Regardless of the scientific explanation for our dreams, we have often thought about the meaning behind the images we see when we close our eyes at night.

Dreamcatcher Earth

Dream interpretation has long been used as a way of controlling the lives of both the self, and also the nation: The Ancient Greeks had healing temples were erected so that people can have the healing powers from the spirits as they dream their illnesses away; Romans controlled their armies depending on the images contained in the dreams, and Egyptians who could dream were highly revered as they believed that their power came direct from the gods.

Many of the Eastern and older cultures such as Aborigines and Native Americans believed that when a person sleeps, the soul enters a world of dreams, where it’s possible to connect with their ancestors, and receive messages from those who govern that world about events in the waking world.

Persecution of witches

All of these cultures used dreams as a positive way of eliminating the stresses of the waking world, and the interpretation of such dreams enabled them to live fulfilling lives as their beliefs dictated. However, during the witch hunts it was seen that dreaming came from the devil, or that people had troubled dreams as a result of angering a witch somehow, and a curse was placed upon them. Dreams couldn’t be spoken about for fear of imprisonment and torture, or they were used as a way of accusing others of practicing sorcery.

By the end of those bad times, people no longer believed that dreams were caused by the devil, but instead were an affliction of the mind. There was said to be no need to interpret these dreams, as they meant nothing. But that changed during the 19th century, when psychologists such as Freud and Jung commented about the nature of our dreams in relation to the way we see ourselves and world around us.

English: Group photo in front of Clark Univers...

Since then, our dreams have been known to answer many questions we have about the self, as we interpret the images we see in our dreams in relation to events that have already occurred. How often do we dream? How much can we see before the dream changes? Do we see anyone we recognise? These questions are asked upon waking, but sometimes the dream has faded in those moments, and we’re left grasping for a memory we no longer have.

Sometimes it is possible to answer these questions, or discover whether you have a foretelling of the future, an explanation of the past, or simply a way of winding down, just by recording down the dreams we have, and interpreting the colours, images and signs we can pick out from our journals.

How to Translate Your Dreams

August 6, 2013 on 7:16 pm | In Dreamwork, Health and Dreams, History and Beliefs, Interpreting Dreams | No Comments

Dreams are sequence images, sounds and feelings experienced while sleeping, particularly strongly associated with rapid eye movement sleep. Reveal the meanings behind your nightmares. On the web – you can understand your dreams and you’ll find a complete Dream Dictionary. Search your dream analysis and interpretation. What do you dream about?

A nightmare causes a strong unpleasant emotional response from the sleeper, typically fear or horror, being in situations of extreme danger, or the sensations of pain, falling, drowning or death. Such dreams can be related to physical causes such as a high fever, turned faced down on a pillow during sleep (most often in the case of drowning nightmares), or psychological ones such as psychological trauma or stress in the sleeper’s life, or can have no apparent cause.

Remembering

Most important step is when you wake up in the morning, don’t move from the position you woke up in. That’s the position you were dreaming in. You will disconnect your memory from the dream.

Don’t think about what you have to do today. Quiet your mind, and let the dream come back to you. You have 90 seconds before that dream fades away.
Whatever you remember, even if all you remember is a tiny piece, write it down. This all happens in the same part of our brain where short-term memory is stored and if you don’t write it down it will be gone after breakfast.

Facts

1. One-third of our lives is spent sleeping.

2. In an average lifetime, you would have spent a total of about six years of it dreaming. That is more than 2,100 days spent in a different realm!

3. Nightmares have been here as long as mankind. Back in the Roman Era, striking and significant dreams were submitted to the Senate for analysis and interpretation.

4. Everybody dreams. EVERYBODY! Simply because you do not remember does not mean that you do not dream.

5. Dreams are indispensable. A lack of dream activity can mean protein deficiency or a personality disorder.

6. We dream on average of one or two hours every night. And we often even have 4-7 dreams in one night.

7. Blind people do dream. Whether visual images will appear in their dream depends on whether they where blind at birth or became blind later in life. But vision is not the only sense that constitutes a dream. Sounds, tactility, and smell become hypersensitive for the blind and their dreams are based on these senses.

8. Five minutes after the end of the dream, half the content is forgotten. After ten minutes, 90% is lost.

9. The word dream stems from the Middle English word, dreme which means “joy” and “music”.

10. Men tend to dream more about other men, while women dream equally about men and women.

11. Studies have shown that our brain waves are more active when we are dreaming than when we are awake.

12. Dreamers who are awakened right after REM sleep, are able to recall their dreams more vividly than those who slept through the night until morning.

13. Physiologically speaking, researchers found that during dreaming REM sleep, males experience erections and females experience increased vaginal blood flow – no matter what the content of the dream. In fact, “wet dreams” may not necessarily coincide with overtly sexual dream content.

14. People who are giving up smoking have longer and more intense dreams.

15. Toddlers do not dream about themselves. They do not appear in their own dreams until the age of 3 or 4.

16. If you are snoring, then you cannot be dreaming.

17. Nightmares are common in children, typically beginning at around age 3 and occurring up to age 7-8.

18. In a poll, 67% of Americans have experienced Deja Vu in their dreams, occurring more often in females than males.

19. Around 3% of adults suffer from sleep apnea. This treatable condition leads to unexplained tiredness and inefficiency.

Are You Psychic Or Is It Your Imagination?

August 6, 2013 on 3:46 pm | In History and Beliefs | No Comments
One of the world’s most famous experts on mental health, Carl Jung had regular conversations with his ‘imaginary’ friend Philemon during his adult years. So how do we know if it’s a person in spirit we’re experiencing around us, or simply our imagination?

Like many people whom I have come across over the years, I too became very aware of my psychic skills rather suddenly. Previously I had put the ability down to imagination and clever people watching. However, one day, around the age of twenty two, I left home for the supermarket. Reversing out of the driveway I spotted a figure darting from the front room into the hall. Frightened, I thought it was a burglar who had waited until I had left the house. Then, I noticed that the ‘burglar’ had not used the doorway and was now standing in the hall looking at me. As the figure moved towards the front door (my view was from the car) I realised it was my grandmother whom had died several years previously. She stood there, happily waving to me. ‘Imagination’ I thought, and went along my way.

In my case, like so many, my grandmother chose not to end her communication with me there and then. Over a period of time I began to have very clear communications that I consistently put down to my ‘imagination’; vivid dreams about job interviews I then had, ‘knowing’ about meetings that then took place a few days or weeks later, an overwhelming compulsion to pursue the psychic path, the constant feeling someone was ‘with me’ followed by a persistent knocking sound of knuckles rapping on wood. Finally, ending with the cleaner seeing my grandmother grinning sitting at the kitchen table! It was only then I accepted it could possibly be more than ‘imagination’.

As you can see, imagination and psychic ability are very closely linked. It is often through the channels of the ‘imagination’ that psychic ability emerges – the skill is, being able to tell the difference between the two. For many people, the psychic skills within them suddenly become noticeable and develop further over a period of time until it becomes so evident they can no longer ignore them.

When Spirit want to encourage you to open up to your psychic side, the persistence is relentless. Even if you ignore it for months, or even years, the tapping at your curiosity will continue until you take notice. You’ll keep dragging along a friend to a psychic, or medium, to check they tell your friend something different; because each time you go ‘just out of curiosity’, they always mention your psychic or healing ability is there waiting to be discovered!

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.

Above Ground Swimming Pool

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.
