Mr. Fox was just here

posted by Robert Moss

I am receiving such an interesting stream of stories of encounters with the fox in dreams, in the natural world and in folklore, movies and literature that I see I shall need to write more on this theme. For now, […]

Dream clues in foreign languages

posted by Robert Moss

Words of foreign languages in my dreams have proven to be keys to very interesting doors in waking life.  When I was a boy in Australia, a radiant being who insisted in speaking Greek informed me that all true knowledge […]

What rhymes in a day

posted by Robert Moss

I make it a practice to notice what rhymes in a day. When we experience a run of incidents or sightings that resemble each other, it can be a strong indicator that something from the deeper reality is breaking through […]

The trees call for speakers

posted by Robert Moss

A woman named Laura reports this dream from last night: All the trees the whole world over had been bulldozed down. They were scattered into big piles on a ground of different shades of red and brown, and small fires […]

We can bring magic

posted by Robert Moss

You never know who’s listening to you, once you’ve been recorded. On a recent plane trip, when we had rolled up to the gate and passengers were reaching for their carry-ons, a woman three rows ahead turned to me and […]

Dream archeology in southern France

posted by Robert Moss

Early in my stay at the l’Hameau de l’Etoile (Hamlet of the Star), the refurbished 17th century village in southern France where I’ve been teaching Active Dreaming over the past two weeks, I dreamed of a prehistoric standing stone. The […]

The Double on the Balcony

You are not my shadow.You stand closer to the sun.Of all my doubles, you are the most interesting.You are watching when I forget you.You are with me when I don’t notice.You are not my judge, or my guardian angel.You are […]

Around you lies a universe whose center you are

posted by Robert Moss

A thought for today from Thomas Mann: The world has many centers, one for each created being, and about each one it lies in its own circle…About you lies a universe whose center I am not but you are….Our universes […]

The Mystery of Pauli’s Chinese Woman

posted by Robert Moss

 Coincidence multiplies when we are in motion. By “coincidence”, I mean the intersection of an external event – or series of events – with an inner sense of meaning. Case in point: When I was on book tour in San […]

The drive to create

posted by Robert Moss

I recently came upon a statement by Raphael Soyer that wonderfully conveys the nature and the power of the drive to create. Born into bitter poverty in a Jewish family in Russia in the time of the pogroms, Soyer (1899-1987) […]

Dreams require action

posted by Robert Moss

Unless we do something with our dreams, we will not dream well. This is indigenous wisdom, and I believe it was understood by all of our ancestors when they lived in cultures that valued dreams, and the dreamer. As my […]

Dream symbols – Naked in public

posted by Robert Moss

It’s your first day on the new job, and you’ve done your best to be ready. But wait – you forgot to put on your pants. You’re in church and the minister is clearing his throat, ready to start the […]

Dream symbols – Excremental issues

posted by Robert Moss

“Shit is good!” The elderly Italian grocery store owner’s eyes twinkled as she bagged tomatoes and homemade pasta. “If you crap in your dreams, it means money.” Her reading is an ancient one, still alive in many family traditions. The […]

What if? Exploring our parallel lives

posted by Robert Moss

Have you ever wondered what would have happened had you made a different choice – or had the world made a different choice for you – at an important crossroads in your earlier life? I’m sure all of us have […]

To be redeemed from fire by fire

posted by Robert Moss

Fire is a great ally in psychic cleansing. In our gatherings on a very special mountain in the New York Adirondacks, we perform a ritual of fire releasing that is simple and profound. During the day, preparing for the first […]

The dream that is a song that is a road

posted by Robert Moss

The Temiar people of the Malaysian rainforest live very close to their land. Their stilt houses are walled with bamboo poles, laid horizontally so there are gaps between them. There are also gaps between the bamboo slats of the floors. Earth and […]

Lucid dream reentry to claim the key of song

posted by Robert Moss

I am walking in deep, springy grass, humming a little hum, a bit like Winnie-the-Pooh.. Ahead of me, near a fine lake, is a great tree, and I know that important things are waiting for me if only I can […]

Jung on the American sixth sense for the genuine

posted by Robert Moss

I just came upon some memorable counsel from Jung on how to talk (or rather not talk) to the English as opposed to the Americans, in which he speaks of the American “sixth sense for the genuine”. I find this quite fascinating: […]

Healing with the Deer of the Mountain

posted by Robert Moss

This weekend, a gathering of frequent fliers will assemble on a mountain in the New York Adirondacks for our 15th year together. The heart of this mountain is garnet fire. The ancestral spirits of this land are of the branch […]

Lucid dreams inside lucid dreams

posted by Robert Moss

I haven’t much favored the term “lucid dream” – though I’ve been a lucid dreamer all of my life – because of past associations with agendas for “controlling” or “manipulating” dreams. But as the discussion matures, especially since the publication […]

Bear sightings

posted by Robert Moss

You stood in the middle of a country road to make me stop and listen. I got round you and said, when my heart slowed, that a bear in the road is just coincidence.   So you came over in […]

In the dream kitchen
In my night dreams, the place of creation is often a kitchen. I don’t do a lot of cooking, but I love the image of the kitchen — where we are fed and nourished and we mix things together and cook things up — as the creative center. I especially like to think of the creative process as being

Seven Open Secrets of Imagination
The greatest crisis in our lives is a crisis of imagination. We get stuck and set ourselves up for failure because we buy into a limited or self-defeating version of reality, and refuse to see our situation differently. The answer lies within us, in the power of imagination. We are ruled by image

As Lady Sarashina crossed a bridge of dreams
From a thousand years ago, in a slim autobiographical novel gusting with moonlight and desire, we have a dozen dreams of an anonymous Japanese woman wh

The first Valentine, from the captive prince
Why the day of Saint Valentine is associated with romantic love is a mystery. A couple of sainted Valentines, both martyred, are known to the early church but what little is known of them has nothing to do with romance. They are so obscure that the feast of St.Valentine was removed from the General

The best way to understand a dream
The best way to grasp the meaning of a dream, and to determine what action the dream requires, is to go back inside the dream and recover more of the story. We should never confuse a dream report - what we remember and can say about a dream - with the full experience of the dream itself. Even a very
