A leader of dream workshops and seminars details a unique, nine-step approach to understanding dreams, using contemporary dreamwork techniques developed from shamanic cultures around the world. Conscious Dreaming shows you how to use your dreams to understand your past, shape your future, get in touch with your deepest desires, and be guided by your higher self. Author Robert Moss explains how to apply shamanic dreamwork techniques, most notably from Australian Aboriginal and Native American traditions, to the challenges of modern life and embark on dream journeys. Moss's methods are easy, effective, and entertaining, animated by his skillful retelling of his own dreams and those of his students--and the dreams' often dramatic insights and outcomes. According to Moss, some shamans believe that nothing occurs in ordinary reality unless it has been dreamed first. In the dreamscape, we not only glimpse future events, we can also develop our ability to choose more carefully between possible futures. Conscious Dreaming's innovative system of dream-catching and transpersonal interpretation, of dream re-entry adn keeping a dream journal enables the reader to tap the deepest sources of creativity and intuition and make better choices in the critical passages of life.… (més)

This is absolutely one of the best books I've read ever.

The author suffered extremely poor health as a child and worked with his dreams from an early age, having many dream visitors/guides, including Philemon, whom he later discovered had been one of C.G. Jung's guides.

I lack words to express the richness of the book. The author shares freely with us his many exceptional dream experiences, including with guides and shamans.

We learn about conscious dreaming, which phrase the author prefers to the more common phrase "lucid dreaming". He feels that lucid dream enthusiasts have the aim of manipulating dreams to "serve the agendas of the waking ego". He is dissatisfied with people programming themselves to wake up inside the dream state. He thinks we should spontneously become lucid by noticing ourselves doing things we are not generally capable of doing in our physical body. (But here I must stress that not everyone is as gifted as Robert Moss at spontaneously achieving lucidity, not to mention attracting all the other amazing experiences he easily manifests.)

He points out that dreams are "wiser than our everyday minds and come from an infinitely deeper source". He feels that "to try to control this source is the ultimate delusion".

He quotes a Seneca Indian healer: "The dream world is the real world."

It is vitally important to record our dreams as soon as possible, before they disappear from our memory. We should date our reports. give our dreams titles and note our feelings and immediate associations.

If we have a question we need answered, or a problem we need solved, we can take it to our dream source. We should formulate our question or request clearly, lay off alcohol, drugs and caffeine and refrain from overeating before going to bed, and agree to accept and work with the dreams given to us.

There is a chapter providing us with nine keys to our dreams. These are: 1) Pay attention to how you feel when waking from a dream. Your feelings and bodily sensations may be your best guide to the importance of a dream and its positive or negative implications. 2) Jot down your first associations with the dreams you record. 3) Dreams often contain accurate information about external reality, for instance, helpful information from the future. Ask "Could this dream mean exactly what it says?" 4) The meaning of a dream is inside the dream itself. We can learn to re-enter our dreams in a relaxed state and thus clarify messages about future events, resume contact with inner teachers, and resolve unfinished business. We generally forget 90% of our dreams, thus it is a valuable skill to re-enter them, e.g. by means of shamanic drumming, to search for information we may have missed. 5) learn to dialogue with dream characters. Ask them what they want to tell us. Everything in dreams is alive. (Moss remarks - "Shamans know the same is true of waking life".) 6) Follow your dream self, and you are likely to find that you have many selves. You my catch yourself changing your sex, age or race. You could even find yourself "body-hopping". 7) Explore dream symbols. 8) Ask what part of me different characters and elements in a dream represent. 9) We should always do something with important dreams. Record them, explore them and share them. We can write a dream motto, confirm our dream messages, find out how to help to bring a positive dream to pass or how to avoid negative future event.

Sharing dreams with a partner or with a group can be rewarding and provide a variety of insights that may illuminate many levels of the dream.

With regard to the etiquette of dream-sharing, remember: 1) You are the final authority on the meaning of your dream. 2) You should preface any comments you make about someone else's dream with the phrase "If it were my dream ...". 3)Do not ask other dreamers for personal details they have not volunteered and 4)Dreams shared within the circle should not be told to outsiders without the dreamer's permission.

A chapter about conscious dreaming also contains accounts of OBEs (out-of-body experiences). Moss has some amazing dreams/OBEs and communications with various beings. He has an "extended conversation" (telepathically) with what he terms "a life force", and enters a different galaxy. He develops personal maps of paths and landscapes inside the dreamworlds, places to which he can return.

Moss informs us that we can return again and again to dream locations that do not have a counterpart in ordinary reality. We can explore the possible conditions of life after physical death, and return to special places for specific guidance or healing.

Conscious dreaming facilitates shared dreaming - our ability to join a partner in our dreams. We can set up a "dream date" with a rendezvous familiar to both of us either in ordinary or non-ordinary reality.

There is an exciting chapter (though all the chapters are exciting) about shamanic dreaming. We learn about techniques for shifting consciousness, including shamanic drumming. We are taught how to enter the Lower World to make contact with an animal guardian and how to rise to the Upper World in search of a spiritual teacher.

The book includes chapters about 1) using "dream radar", including meeting your future self 2) dreams of the departed, including dialogues with the dead 3) dream guides and guardian angels (Gabriel is the Archangel of dreams) 4) dreams of healing including working with our dream doctor (we receive both warnings, diagnoses and presciptions in our dreams. 5) The creative power of dreams, including "creative incubation".

This excellent book is packed with accounts of exciting, amazing, illuminating dreams and dream experiences of both the author and those attending his dream courses. It contains numerous exercises, and much. much invaluable advice.

I found this to be the most valuable, gripping, informative book on dreams I've read. I can't see how any other dream book could excel this one. I highly recommend that you purchaze this wonderful book. ( )

Powerfully influenced me and my reverence to my dream-life. Moss's writing is clear and elegant and he leaves me endlessly intrigued by the bigger picture behind our lives. ( )
