Is dream incubation only a vestige of absurd and superstitious rituals that only bears meaning for populations who live at the antipodes of the western world?
Since the sixties dream incubation has been brought back to the forefront by American dream researchers. It has convinced and conquered those who have practiced it and it is spreading widely among those who are interested in their dreams and seek a dialogue with their interior world, with their unconscious.
Throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe all researchers recommend its use and recognize its merits.
Incubation is a very simple and efficient venture.
Here, I ‘m offering a summary of the procedure. ( See below* for more explanations)
All that is needed is that you ask your dream for guidance.
For example, writing a letter to your dream you can ask :
- Can you give me explanations about my current life situation ?
- Can you show me how I can better my relationship with my father ?
You can ask whatever you want. Here are the 3 questions Nathalie, one of my friends, asked the dream the first time she made an incubation.
Of course she got an answer ! We will see it an other time.
However, the best is to limit yourself to one question at a time. You can finish your letter by saying, please give me a clear answer.
Slide the envelope under your pillow and sleep tight.
It seems ridiculous? incredible? Try it, you’ll be astounded.
The next day, you’ll have a dream and you might say: this dream has nothing to do with my question!
Please don’t put aside your dream because of this reason. In your bed, concentrate on the dream, don’t move your head otherwise the dream will be lost, dreams being so ephemeral.
If you are in a hurry, first note the main points and powerful images and later on you can write your whole dream including all the details since they are all significant.
Then try to understand your dream in regards to the question you have asked.
Try to train with the interview method to analyze a person in your dream.
Or seek the help of a competent interpreter. You’ll be astonished !
Countless people have been helped in this way.
Next time we will see quite a story, and discover how the dream answers Irina’s question.
