The Inner Language of Dreams
Part 3 in a series by Serge Grandbois, with Kris
As described earlier, the unconscious communicates by creating or weaving a rich tapestry of images and symbols, some of which come from the fabric of our personal views and daily realities, in its efforts to communicate with the ego portion of your personality. These symbols can also rooted in the rich field of the emotional contents found in our own being.
The rich field of images and symbols can be mined from any of the many aspects of our life, even our daydreams, or fantasies, all of which is fair game for the unconscious to use if it can convey information that reaches some level of our conscious awareness. Just as with any language, there can be many words to describe one or several things at the same time, so symbols can transmit several meanings all at once, often giving us a multi-level teaching.
If you wish to understand a culture other than your own, from any country in the world, one of the best ways to do that is to learn the language of that culture. By learning its language, you begin to grasp the subtleties and nuances, the ideals and philosophies and the very fabric of that culture. This gives you insights into how the people got the where they are today. Learning the local language also enables you to communicate with the people in that culture, thereby enriching your own experiences in ways that can also move and change you. It adds to who you are, as it adds to whomever you meet from that culture in any way shape or form.
Imagine yourself in China, Tibet, or any of many foreign places, and having to learn some of the language in order to ask directions (and actually get them), or ask for food, etc or… Now, instead of learning the language because you don’t understand it, you declare that since it makes no sense to you, it’s a whole lot of nonsense, and you further declare that it therefore has no value to you or anyone because of these things. Not very logical is it? Well, there are many people who consider the same towards dreams and the language of dreams.
Learning the language of your dreams in particular will enrich you in ways that can have profound effects on many levels. And the best way to learn this language is to write it down. Now since not many classrooms allow you to sleep in order to learn anything, it can prove to be one of the easiest of lessons to undertake. Try that in regular classrooms!!
One of the greatest keys in learning these lessons is perseverance, exactly the same as in learning any foreign language. You don’t expect to learn Russian or French, or any other language simply by wishing it. You already expect to be able to ‘get it’ after being in the classroom for a while, and the same patience in learning dream language should apply. And since you have been dreaming even before you were born, whether you recall your dreams or not, then such lessons will move along more quickly than you think.
Since the major aspects of this dream language consists primarily of a combination or mixture of emotion filled imagery, it’s relatively easy to get acquainted with the symbols, as well as making some sense of them. The more effort on our part, the easier it gets as well. The apparent mystery gets clearer and makes more sense. We can learn this language, and its more than simply learning a language of images and emotions.. as if we are little more than translators. This is a powerful ‘living’, interactive language of the psyche.
You don’t merely have to wake up and write, as if there is no other interaction involved from your part. This rich blend of living symbols interacts with you. You are not merely some sort of secretary for your psyche. The following is perhaps a crude example, but it may make enough sense to get the idea across. For instance you may be mulling over some challenge, a family or work place situation, a dilemma presently in your life, and you can ask your dream self to help you resolve this while you sleep.
While you are pleasantly sleeping on your bed, you are also simultaneously engaged with various aspects of the dream reality. You build symbols from the rich bed of inner reality in ways that may tap into resources, experimenting with solutions to your dilemma from the depths of the unconscious, working out variables and probabilities perhaps too complex for the conscious mind to fully grasp.
As you process these inner activities, you come across varying possibilities that may then make sense to the conscious and ego portions of the self that you can then use as you return to your sleeping body. Upon waking, you ‘discover’ some solution to your challenge right there in your waking mind, perhaps not sure how it got there, but happy nonetheless that you worked it out.
This is a very brief description only of the process, but I believe it explains in a very condensed fashion some of the things we all practice while we sleep soundly, oblivious to the work that goes on behind our daily events.
