foot-log

The meaning of Foot-log in dream | Dream interpretation


A woman who dreams of crossing a clear stream of water on a foot log may look forward to having a husband who will treat her with the utmost consideration. But if the water she crosses is muddy, her husband will be difficult to get along with.

If a widow dreams of falling from a foot log into clear waterT she has every reason to expect another suitable mate will soon appear with happy results.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

To dream of crossing a clear stream of water on a foot-log, denotes pleasant employment and profit.

If the water is thick and muddy, it indicates loss and temporary disturbance.

For a woman this dream indicates either a quarrelsome husband, or one of mild temper and regular habits, as the water is muddy or clear.

To fall from a foot-log into clear water, signifies short widowhood terminating in an agreeable marriage.

If the water is not clear, gloomy prospects. See Bridge.

ANTHROPOLOGY OF DREAMS

Anthropology has contributed considerably to the cross-cultural understanding of dreams. The earliest anthropological research on dreams, which dates back to the end of the nineteenth century, considered the dream beliefs and practices of other cultures as evidence of their savagery, in contrast to modern Western civilization’s relative disinterest in dreams. The only area of investigation where dreams played a significant role was psychoanalysis, and psychoanalysis had a tendency to portray dreams as primitive and childish, thus reinforcing the dominant negative image of dreams. With the spread of psychoanalytic theories, various anthropologists tried to prove the accuracy of Sigmund Freud’s ideas about dreams by analyzing of dream experiences of non-Western people.

Some anthropologists, such as Kilton Stew- art, provided romantic idealizations of dream practices in non-Western cultures. According to Stewart, the Senoi of Malaysia reportedly lived a trouble-free life based on their reverence for dreams. Stewart, who lived with the Senoi in 1935, wrote that “the absence of violent crime, armed conflict, and mental and physical diseases ... can only be explained on the basis of institutions which produce a high state of psychological integration and emotional maturity, along with social skills and attitudes that promote creative rather than destructive interpersonal relations” (Stewart, p. 160—see Sources). According to Stewart’s study, the collective life of the Senoi centered around a complex dream psychology that served to integrate the community. However, his theory was soon seriously challenged, and anthropological research on dreams lost credibility.

Anthropologists have long been interested in cross-cultural experiences of dreaming and interpretations of dreams, concentrating especially on the latter interest, rather than focusing on the dream as an experience. With the publication of Dreaming: Anthropological and Psychological Interpretations (1987), edited by Barbara Ted- lock, anthropology emerged as a major field of dream research with important insights to con- tribute to the modern study of dreams.

According to the authors of Dreaming, which is a collection of essays based on fieldwork con- ducted among various peoples of Central and South America, the culture to which the individual belongs largely determines the social context in which the dream is narrated and how it is interpreted. Dreaming experience also reflects important beliefs about reality, death, the soul, and the boundaries between self and others. Thus, to achieve a good understanding of dream experiences of other groups, it is fundamental to fully understand their culture through the study of their language, their social institutions, and their psychological, philosophical, and religious beliefs.

Tedlock’s anthropological research indicates that many other cultures draw lines between more and less meaningful dreams. Also, as one might anticipate, in many non-Western cultures dream- ing has religious meaning, in that dreams reflect a culture’s spiritual beliefs, and may even create new religious imagery that can influence the individual’s as well as the whole society’s religious orientation.

ASTROLOGER

(Foreseer; Fortuneteller; Predictor; Soothsayer) Seeing an astrologer in a dream means associating oneself with spiritual masters and witnessing some of their miraculous signs.

An astrologer in a dream also may mean knowledge of people’s secrets, curiosity, inquisitiveness, meddling in people’s affairs, divulging people’s secrets, soothsaying, fortune-telling, backbiting, predicting the future, hearsay, gossip, distress or trouble.

If the one who is seeing the dream suffers from any of the above ills, seeing an astrologer in a dream also means dispelling such misfortunes. Seeing an astrologer in a dream also signifies marriage, divorce, the death of a sick person, travels, delivering a baby, hearing good or bad news. Seeing an astrologer in a dream also may denote knowledge, following the true path and acting upon it, for a God fearing astrologer mostly arbitrates by the prophetic rules.

ASTROLOGY

To dream about astrology suggests that you are concerned about your current situation and how it will affect your future chances of development.

If you are given an astrological forecast or see your horoscope in your dream, this may offer a significant message which should be analyzed closely to see how it relates to your life. A dream astrologer often represents your intuition or unconscious insights into yourself and others; there may be a link with your need for a sense of destiny or direction. But perhaps you do not believe in astrology, in which case your dream might be suggesting you are being misled in some way.

Astrology can enter your dream world in ways that you have probably never imagined. The celestial messages may come through symbols, numbers, archetypes, elements, planets, gemstones, body parts, plants, colors and places associated with a particular sign of the Zodiac. It is also possible that symbols in your dreams can be connected to astrological ideas relating to your own birth chart or people connected to you. A person appearing in a dream can be an aspect of your psyche, show an attitude or quality, represent the real person, be a symbol, or a combination of all of these. Similarly, several other elements can have meaning if you are able to crack the code. For example, if you dream you are a warrior charging into battle, this is definitely an Aries theme. At critical times of transformation in your life you can dream of the astrological event that is thought to correspond to what is actually happening. For example, when you experience a Saturn Return, which according to astrologers is a time of coming of age and maturing that only happens once every twenty-nine years (between the ages of 28-30, 57-59, 86-88), you might dream of climbing a mountain and reaching the top of the first peak.

BAREFOOT

In a dream, it means toiling in one’s life and exhaustion. This is thus interpreted if one does not actually see himself going through the motion of taking off his shoes and walking barefooted. Otherwise, in that case, it means that he will receive an appointment to a high ranking position. Walking barefooted in a dream is also interpreted as unloading one’s burdens and relief from pressure, divorce or death in one’s family.

If one sees himself traveling barefooted, it represents a debt that he could not repay.

If one sees himself walking with one foot bare and the second fitted in the dream, it means breaking up a business partnership.

BIOLOGICAL DREAM THEORY

J.A. Hadfield, in his book Dreams and Nightmares (Pelican 1954), puts forward what he calls a biological theory of dreams. He says the function of dreams is that, by reproducing difficult or unsolved situations or experi­ences, the dream aids a solving or resolution of the problems. He gives the example of a man climbing a cliff who slips fractionally. He then may dream of actually falling and waking terrified. Subsequently the dream recurs, but in each he tries out a different behaviour, such as clasping for a branch, until he manages to act appropriately to avert the disaster. He sums up by saying dreams stand in the place of experience. They make us relive areas of anxious or difficult experience. They thus help problem solving. But they not only look back at past behaviour, they act just like thinking in considering future plans and needs. ... A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences

CHINESE ASTROLOGY

The Chinese Zodiac is based on the year rather than the month as in the Western system of astrology. If you dream of a particular Chinese Zodiac symbol, such as a rat or snake, you might want to consider these characteristics and try to apply them to yourself or others.

Rat (1900, 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020)

  • People born in the year of the Rat are often energetic and tenacious. They are capable of being generous and lovable, and are good listeners when one is needed, Rats can, however, also be manipulative and power-hungry creatures, so those befriending them must be wary of these tendencies.
Buffalo (1901, 1913, 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021)
  • Those born under the sign of the Buffalo (also known as the Ox) are usually hard-working, methodical and patient people.
  • Though they can often be found in positions of leadership, they can sometimes be loners. People born in the year of the Buffalo can also be stubborn to the point of being rigid, and at worst they can be jealous or vindictive.
Tiger (1902, 1914, 1926, 1938, 1950, 1962,1974, 1986, 1998, 2010, 2022)
  • The Tiger is a noble, courageous creature, as can be the people born under this sign. They are protective and passionate as well, which complements their sensitivity. Tigers can be hot-headed at times, even to the extent of becoming quarrelsome and acting rashly or hastily.
  • These characteristics can lead to vain, uncompromising or unruly folk.
Cat (1903, 1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023)
  • Those born in the year of the Cat (sometimes known as the Rabbit) are often refined and socially adept, which makes them all the better to have as friends. These clever folk can sometimes be seen as a bit old-fashioned or even aloof, and at worst they can be thin-skinned and devious.
Dragon (1904, 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952,1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024)
  • To be born in the year of the Dragon is to be a spirited and scrupulous individual. People tend to admire the enthusiasm and the vital, generous nature of the Dragon. However, as a fire-breathing creature, the Dragon can be overbearing, loud-mouthed and irritable. Generous and independent, the scrupulous Dragon can be a demanding person to be around.
Snake (1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025)
  • Those born in the year of the Snake can be wise and understated, and are often soft-spoken, placid and compassionate souls. Snakes can have an air of intelligence about them that could be related to their good breeding or philosophical minds. But beware of angering a Snake; they can be vengeful, fickle and possessive, and they are often sore losers.
Horse (1906, 1918, 1930, 1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014, 2026)
  • People born in the year of the Horse are often athletic, independent and skilful. These powerful, hard-working folk are not only quick on their feet but are also quick with their tongues. Horses make quite charming friends because of their wittiness and upbeat moods on most days. They can be rebellious and tactless at times, even ruthless when they lose their tempers.
Goat (1907, 1919, 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015, 2027)
  • The year of the Goat gives rise to peaceful, sweet-natured people who tend to be well-mannered and artistic. These intelligent folk can be kind-hearted and persevering when a cause motivates them. However, a Goat can also be intrusive, irresponsible and inclined towards melancholy.
Monkey (1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028)
  • Those born in the year of the Monkey are often known for their intelligence and problem-solving abilities, which could explain why they make such good businessmen. They can be witty and captivating, but at worst they can be vain, untrustworthy or immature.
Rooster (1909, 1921, 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, 2029)
  • The year of the Rooster brings forth enthusiastic, self- assured people. Roosters are quite industrious, and they often have a conservative streak that clashes with the more adventurous side of their nature. Whilst these people can be very resourceful, they can also be difficult to work with or be around because of their tendency to nit-pick and brag. At their worst, Roosters are brazen and untrusting.
Dog (1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018, 2030)
  • Loyal, discreet and dutiful people are often born in the year of the Dog, making them excellent prospects as friends. They can be intelligent and selfless as well, but they can also be introverted, critical and defensive, and at their worst, Dogs are cynical and grim.
Pig (1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031)
  • People born in the year of the Pig are often peace-loving, accommodating and sociable folk. Pigs have a sensual side that often shows their love of indulgence. Whilst they can be intelligent, some Pigs are naïve, which allows less scrupulous individuals to take advantage of them. Gullibility and insecurity can be a dangerous combination for Pigs at times.

Symbol: These are symbols of spiritual and intellectual insight.

Vision: Dreaming about blue eyes: either somebody is secretly in love with you or you are secredy in love with someone. Dark or brown eyes: prepare yourself for a disappointing romance. Dreaming about an eye illness (eye patch, eye injury, or blindness): you are unable to see a situation in your life clearly, or you have a problem facing the real truth.

An eye patch indicates that you can do your job even with your eyes closed! Visiting or seeing an ophthalmologist: you will soon see things as they really are. See Cross-eyed.

Depth Psychology: Dreaming about eyes means you are too preoccupied with yourself.

The eye is considered the organ of light. Dreaming about eyes always has something to do with understanding life. Dreaming about an eye that is looking at you might be a warning from your conscience. Eyes by themselves are symbols of intelligence, spirit, alertness, and curiosity. Other events in the dream are important here.... Dreamers Dictionary

FLOGGING

(4) Feet may symbolize contact with Nature, including instinctual drives and instinctive wisdom. Feet are at the opposite ends of the body to the head, which symbolizes intellectuality and fantasizing. Intellectuals typically have difficulty in assimilating the instinctive wisdom of their unconscious, but desperately need what the unconscious has to offer: without it they are lopsided (or top-heavy, if you will). Keep vour feet on the ground and your head in the air? No, that means a split in the psyche. Rather, keep your head in your feet!

LOGGER / LUMBERJACK

See Wood- Since in the past the forest was thought of as a dark place and, therefore, the place of the unconscious, the logger is seen as creating order in an area of chaos. Here, the harshness of nature is transformed into something more refined, as the wood removed is put into the service of people in the form of firewood and building material.

If the wood is not split, cutting down trees may also mean a loss of energy. On the other hand, chopping wood may also be seen as aggressive action against one’s own aliveness and health.

The logger may stand for being wooden and unrefined, resulting in a stupid and dull position or attitude. In the case of a city person, there could be a romantic longing for a simpler life, as in Farmer and Craftsman.

MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY

Almost all of us have dreams directly related to things we are involved iV with in our waking lives, so it is not surprising that we dream about computers, television, telephones and the media.

If you dream that your hard drive is crashing, do you wake up just before the Fatal System Error message appears? What would be the meaning of a dream about a cursor that was frozen, not flashing, on a blank screen? And in scrutinizing nightmares about phones that won’t work in times of extreme emergency, are there times when a hard drive is really just a hard drive? In other words, is your dream a reflection of your day-to-day preoccupation with computers, televisions or mobile phones or does it have a deeper meaning?

As computers, televisions and phones leach deeper into our unconscious, accounts of anxiety-filled dreams about them are becoming increasingly common. According to Jungians, the computer as a symbol of the advance of technology is fast becoming its own archetype. In this chapter we’ll take a look at some of the most common dreams about the media and modern technology, and what they might signify to you.

NUMEROLOGY

Numerology is the age-old study of numbers according to numerical principles established by the ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, the Kabala (ancient mystical tradition of Judaism) and Tarot. It attributes a number to each letter so that both words and numbers can be studied for their mystical meaning. In numerological divination, all numbers are reduced to a number between 1 and 9 and each number is also associated with each letter of the alphabet. Any number larger than 9 can be reduced to a single number by adding all the digits together; for example, the number 821 becomes 8 + 2 + 1 = 11; then 1 + 1 = 2. The qualities of 821 are equivalent to the symbolic number 2. Using the single digit as a guide, the patterns of different dates and a person’s name can then be analyzed to define character and to predict the future. Holy books such as the Bible are packed with numerological references. When the numerological equivalents of a person’s name and birth date are added together, the numbers obtained are thought to tell a great deal about a person’s character, skills and destiny. Dreams often use principles of numerology in the same way and the art of numerology is sometimes applied to dreams for divinatory purposes.

In numerology all numbers correspond to the letters of the alphabet as follows:

1 = A, J, S

2 = B, K, T

3 = C, L, U

4 = D, M, V

5 = E, N, W

6 = F, O, X

7 = G, P, Y

8 = H, Q, Z

9 = I, R

The human qualities associated with each number are:

  • 1- Independent, creative, ambitious, extrovert, innovator
    Downside: Can be selfish and have tunnel vision
  • 2- Sensitive, domestic, imaginative, musical, attractive
    Downside: can be timid and gullible
  • 3- Scientific, powerful, seeker of knowledge, multitalented, communicator
    Downside: Can be superficial and hedonistic
  • 4- Practical, stable, dependable, honest, trustworthy, homemaker
    Downside: Can be stubborn and overly serious
  • 5- Energetic, sensual, daring, experienced
    Downside: Can find it hard to commit
  • 6- Perfection seeker, creative, compassionate, calm
    Downside: Can be super-sensitive and overemotional
  • 7- Intellectual, philosophical, imaginative (psychic)
    Downside: Can be impractical, secretive and unapproachable
  • 8- Materially successful, just, trustful, businesslike
    Downside: Can be opinionated, impatient and intolerant
  • 9- Spiritual, humanitarian, healer, free
    Downside: Can be self-serving, possessive and volatile.

Numerologists believe no number is better or worse than another. All the numbers have incredible power potential as well as a downside. The downside simply suggests challenges associated with a particular number and if these challenges are faced and overcome, they can be a source of incredible strength.

WHY DO WE DREAM? PHYSIOLOGY OF DREAMS

“Everything serious comes to us at night.”
CICERO

What happens when we sleep?

Why do we sleep? The answer is not as simple as it seems. We sleep so that our body can rest, we think at first. However, science has not been able to prove concretely that sleep is necessary for physical recuperation of the body. Experiments performed on rats have proven that when deprived of sleep, these animals die.

But human nature is not as simple as that of rats. Everyone knows people who barely sleep. The most extreme case, published in some scientific magazines, is that of a man who claims not to have slept since contracting a serious illness. In a similar vein, some individuals with a highly developed spirituality are able to remain conscious all night. We’re not referring to a student during exam time drinking coffee or taking stimulants to stay awake more than twenty-four hours straight. We’re talking about people who can achieve advanced levels of relaxation through deep meditation.

It is known that anxiety and lack of concentration increase considerably after a night or two without sleep. One theory related to sleep affirms that we sleep to conserve energy. However, another suggests that we rest to conserve our food stores, since when we lose consciousness, we repress the hunger mechanism.


How much do we sleep?

Sleep at different ages

In the course of his life, a person has, on average, 300,000 dreams. As we age, both the time we spend sleeping and the time we spend dreaming decrease gradually.

Newborns sleep almost all day, alternating hours of sleep with short spells of wakefulness. By one year of age, they sleep fewer sessions but for longer in total: they have cycles of 90 minutes of sleep followed by another 90 minutes of waking time. Gradually, the child will sleep more at night and less during the day. By 9 years of age, most need between 9 and 12 hours of sleep a day.

The average for an adult is between 7 and 8.5 hours. But after age 70, we return to the sleep phases of childhood and sleep fewer hours continuously.

There are arguments that even claim we have slept since ancient times in order to appear a less tasty snack for nocturnal predators (when we sleep, our body looks like a corpse).

There are theories to suit everyone, but we shouldn’t forget the fundamental: for almost all of us, sleeping is a relaxing and pleasant experience that lasts between six and eight hours each night, an experience that is utterly necessary to “recharge the batteries” of our bodies.

It’s no coincidence that we choose nighttime to sleep. In the darkness our vision is reduced, the world becomes strange, and as a result, our imagination runs wild. Our minds remain occupied with images (that is, dreams). At night, our eyes don’t work, but we have a need to create images. If for some reason we are deprived of sleep, the following nights our dream production increases, since we spend more time in the REM phase (the period of sleep when oneiric thoughts are most active). Therefore it seems evident that we need dreams to live.

Some ancient civilizations believed that dreaming served, more than anything, to be able to dream. They were convinced that oneiric activity wasn’t the result of sleeping, but rather the reason for it. Some scientists, however, don’t share the theories of our ancestors when it comes to the reason behind our dreams.

There is a scientific school of thought that asserts that oneiric thoughts are simply a neurophysiological activity that comes with sleep. According to this theory, when we sleep we generate spontaneous signals that stimulate the sensory channels in the mind. The brain transforms these signals into visual images and induces the dreamer to believe that he is living real experiences.

Up to that point, perfect. But, why do dreams have such an interesting narrative? Why do they so often express metaphoric language? Why do they narrate stories that directly affect us? There is no concrete or scientific answer to these questions.

Percentages of REM sleep

Cold-blooded animals never dream; the cold temperatures at night cause them to hibernate and all their vital functions, including the brain, slow down. Only when the sun comes out or the temperature rises to an acceptable level do they recuperate all vital functions. The only cold-blooded animal that has shown signs of dreaming is the chameleon.

On the other hand, we know all warm-blooded animals dream, since REM-phase activity has been detected in all of them. Birds dream only about 0.5% of the time they spend asleep, while humans dream up to 20% of the time. There are exceptional cases, such as that of the Australian platypus, that never dream.

Other theories suggest that dreams serve to eliminate unnecessary facts from memory, since we can’t store everything that happens every day. According to this thesis, at night we erase the “archives” we don’t need, just like a computer. The sleeping mind tests the process of erasing in the form of dreams, which would explain why they’re so difficult to remember. There are obvious limitations to this theory if you keep in mind that, occasionally, oneiric thoughts work creatively (they go beyond the information that we give them). These don’t have much to do with the merely “hygienic” function that the aforementioned scientific community claims. Often, dreams don’t eliminate the useless leftovers of daily experiences. Quite the opposite: they give them a surprising new shape, so when we wake up, we can reflect more deeply on their meaning.

The phases of sleep

Even though we don’t realize it, when we sleep at night we pass through four different phases of sleep. Each phase is distinguished by the deepness of sleep. That is, when we are in phase 1, it is a fairly light sleep; during phase 4, we reach maximum intensity.

When we go to sleep, we enter a period in which we gradually pull away from the exterior world. Little by little, our sleep deepens until finally (phase 4) our breathing slows and becomes regular, our cardiac rhythm slows down, and our body temperature decreases. Therefore the body’s metabolism also reduces its activity.

More or less an hour after falling asleep, your body has already gone through the four phases. At this point you begin to go back through the levels until you return to phase 1. This brings along an increase in respiratory and cardiac rhythm. Parallel to this, brain waves once again start to register an activity close to that of consciousness. You are therefore in a moment of transition, demonstrated by the fact that at this point the body tends to change position.

All signs indicate that any noise might wake us. But that’s not the case: since your muscle tone has been reduced, this is actually the moment when it’s most difficult to regain consciousness. At the same time, your eyes begin to move behind your eyelids (up and down and side to side). This ocular phenomenon, which anyone can observe easily, is known as the REM phases, which stands for “rapid eye movement.”

Certain areas of the brain are associated with different functions and human skills, translating external sensory stimuli into a well-organized picture of the world. In dreams, those same stimuli produce different reactions. If a sleeping person hears a sound or touches something repulsive, those stimuli will probably be integrated into their dream before they wake up.

The REM phase

The REM phase is particularly important for those interested in dreams. All studies indicate that during this brief spell (from five to ten minutes) we typically experience the most intense oneiric activity. Some of these studies, done in a sleep laboratory, have observed that eight out of ten individuals relate very vivid dreams when woken up right at the end of the REM phase. These periods alternate at night with what we could call non-REM phases, that is, periods when no ocular movement is registered.

How many times do we reach a REM stage at night? It is estimated that each cycle is repeated four to seven times. As the hours pass, each phase gets longer. This way, the final REM stage might last twenty to forty minutes. On average, an adult enjoys an hour and a half of REM sleep each night, although for older individuals it may be less than an hour and a quarter. Babies, on the other hand, remain in the REM phase for 60 percent of the time they spend asleep.

In any case, let’s make this clear: not all dreams are produced during this period. It has also been demonstrated that humans generate images in other stages. However, these are dreams of a different quality, since during the non-REM phases, our oneiric activity tends to generate only undefined thoughts, vague sensations, etc. Nothing close to the emotional content that characterizes dreams produced in the REM phase.

The oneiric images produced in the most intense phase (REM) are more difficult to remember. One method to remember them consists of waking up just after each REM phase.

As we’ve commented already, those who wish to read their dreams have to first do the work of remembering them. If we want this work to be 100 percent effective, we can use a method that, although uncomfortable, almost never fails: wake up just after every REM phase. If you want to try this method, set your alarm (without music or radio) to go off four, five, six, or seven and a half hours after falling asleep. You can be sure that if you wake up just after one of the REM phases you go through each night, you will enjoy vivid memories.

This is the process used in sleep laboratories, where oneiric activity is studied through encephalographic registry of electrical brain activity.

The people in the study—who are volunteers—sleep connected to machines that register their physiological reactions (brain waves, cardiac rhythm, blood pressure, muscle activity, eye movement, etc).

At certain points during the night, these reactions indicate that, if you wake them, they will be able to tell you what they dreamed. This is because the phase that produces the most intense dreams (REM) is characterized by a physical reaction easily observed: the rapid movement of the eyes of the dreamer.

With this method, sleep laboratories can collect proof of precisely

when subjects are dreaming. And given that oneiric images are difficult to remember, the lab techniques have been a great advance in dream research. Some experts assert that thanks to the scientific advances of the second half of the twentieth century, we have learned more about sleep processes in the last fifty years than in all the history of humanity.

What do we dream?

A wide study done in France on the subject of dreams produced these results:

  • Relationships with partners (18%)
  • Home, especially that of our childhood (15%) -Aggressors, thieves, being chased, etc. (10%)
  • Missing the train; embarrassing baggage (8%) -Water, wells, tunnels; traffic accidents (6%) -Forgotten children or babies (5%)
  • Snakes, fires, stairs (5%)
  • Negative animals: spiders, cockroaches, rats, etc. (4%) -Clothing or lack of clothing; nakedness (3%)
  • Losing teeth or other alarming situations (2%)

Hypnagogic images: between waking and sleep

As we’ve seen, throughout the night our sleep is divided into four distinct phases. But what happens just before we sink into the first phase? Are we still awake? Not exactly. In the moments when our mind decides between wakefulness and sleep, we begin to lose contact with the world around us, without the characteristic physiological changes of sleep.

This intermediate point has been called the “hypnagogic state” by psychologists. This is a period when, despite the fact that we’re not asleep, our brains generate images that can sometimes be very beautiful. In some ways, these images rival those found in our dreams.

Hypnagogic images of great visual beauty evaporate like bubbles when we wake up and are barely remembered.

However, the hypnagogic state cannot be considered a truly oneiric state. Among other reasons, the scenes produced in this phase are unrelated to the episodes with a more or less coherent plot that characterize dreams.

In the hypnagogic state we produce unrelated images that hardly connect to each other and that, unlike dreams, are not linked to our daily experiences. This phenomenon occurs not only before sleeping but also in the moments before waking up, when we are not yet conscious enough to be aware of them.

Sometimes, before falling asleep we also experience a curious sensation of floating or flying, or we may see very sharp scenes, with a clarity comparable to that of real visual experiences. These types of images, like dreams, evaporate like bubbles when we wake up and we barely remember them, which is a shame because their beauty slips from our minds. In any case, unlike oneiric thoughts, the hypnagogic state is little use for understanding the messages our subconscious wants to send us, and we should value it more for its beauty than its transcendental content.

Salvador Dali, painter of dreams.

To remember them you must not lose consciousness during the apparition. That is, you must observe the process of the hypnagogic state without falling asleep. It seems simple but it is not, because you must submerge yourself in sleep while the mind remains aware of the events happening in its interior. With a little luck, we can see some of the marvelous “paintings” of our private museum.

The surrealist artists of the 20s and 30s knew all about this. This is how Salvador Dali, fervent lover of hypnagogic scenes, turned to what is known as “the monk’s sleep.” He went to bed with a large iron key in his hand. With the first dream, the key would fall to the floor and he would wake up suddenly. In his mind he recorded the hypnagogic images he would later transfer to the canvas in his masterful style.

The seven “chakras,” or centers of subtle energy in the ayurvedic hindu medicine (1).
The nadis according to Tibetan tradition (2).
The meridians of traditional Chinese medicine (3).

If you have difficulty retaining the hypnagogic state, try centering your attention on a concrete point. For example the “third eye” of the yogis (that is, between your eyes), in the area of the heart, or in the top of the head. These three positions are, according to the philosophy of yoga, the centers of subtle rather than physical energy in the human body. You need a place to direct the mind. Another trick to hold attention without effort is to think abstractly about the name of the object you wish to see. This doesn’t mean you have to “create” the images; you just have to induce its appearance during the hypnagogic state. Entering through meditation is also very useful and beneficial.

Sometimes, the hypnagogic scenes are not as pleasant as we would like, but we must confront them in order to strengthen our ability for self-control. If they persist, try following the previous advice. Think abstractly about the name of what you want to see, resisting the temptation to construct it in a certain way from the conscious mind.

The main advantage of the hypnagogic state is that it brings us progressively closer to our deep Self . . . and all that helps to understand and better benefit from dreams.

The same subject can have very different meanings depending on the circumstances and personal situation of the dreamer.... Dreampedia
