posted by Robert Moss

Sometimes it is quite impossible to avoid sensing an intelligence – or multiple intelligences – at work in the riffs of synchronicity. Here’s another personal example, from a weekend workshop at a wilderness center in the Northeast.  In the morning […]

Active dreaming to help the dying

posted by Robert Moss

One of the greatest services we can render the dying is to help them open to the gifts of their own dreams. Just as dreams rehearse us for challenges on the roads of life, they prepare us for the journey […]

Gretchen Duhaime JD is a teacher of Active Dreaming who works with lawyers. I was delighted when she told me that, because she is often asked about the value of our work, she has come up with a “bullet list” […]

Neutralizing psychic attacks

posted by Robert Moss

In the last post on this blog, we examined the signs of psychic attack. If you suspect a psychic attack is under way, how do you respond? There are four key elements:   Hang up on the Intruder.   Remove […]

Signs of psychic attack

posted by Robert Moss

Here’s a cheerful but necessary theme:   Psychic attacks and intrusions occur both consciously and unconsciously. Because thoughts are things and because we are psychically connected, we can reach people over any distance – for good or ill – unless […]

Defining and acting on your personal truth

posted by Robert Moss

When our backs are against the wall, we learn what we truly believe in through the way we call for help. It’s good to get this clear before we find ourselves in an extreme situation. “To thine own self be […]

The screen between the worlds

posted by Robert Moss

She notices there is a huge glass screen on the wall of a house, to her  left. The glass reminds her of the wall of an aquarium. Things are moving behind it. The scene on the other side is intensely […]

Making creative friends

posted by Robert Moss

We need to avoid feedback felons (the people who bring us down by picking holes in our efforts to give birth to something new) and nourish the kind of creative friendship that supports us through change.  Feeling short on creative […]

Low maintenance plan for psychic well-being

posted by Robert Moss

It’s really quite simple: Stay grounded. Spend time in nature. Stay connected with the elemental powers of earth and air, fire and water. Check your boundaries. Be careful what you invite into your space, in every sense. Remember that like […]

Seeing with Hawk & other dream drawings

posted by Robert Moss

Drawing from dreams is a fabulous way to get their energy moving. Giving spontaneous expression to our visions in this way brings out the child and the artist inside us. It also provides a fun record of our inner life, […]

Secrets of creation: Be ready for the flood

posted by Robert Moss

Stefania Pandolfo’s beautiful, polyphonic Impasse of the Angels: Scenes from a Moroccan Space of Memory (University of Chicago Press) evokes the landscapes – imaginal more than physical – of rural Moroccan villagers for whom dreaming and poetry are vitally important, and […]

Following the red horses to a Death Goddess

posted by Robert Moss

Red horses are racing above mountain tops. They are flying over the hills, immense and powerful. Plumes of steam rise from their nostrils. From the steam, men fall to the ground; they appear to be tiny stick figures in proportion […]

Fox’s edge

posted by Robert Moss

“Fox can get the red potatoes jumping for sure,” said Patty just now, commenting on my latest dream of a fox. I’ve noticed that even the mention of a fox creates a stir of excitement, blended with intrigue and anticipation, laced […]

Sidewalk Tarot

posted by Robert Moss

Sometimes we don’t have to look very far to get a message for the day. In my neighborhood on the Fifth of July, the legacy of Firecracker Day included not only the husks of rockets and catherine wheels and multi-chambered […]

In praise of the shelf elf

posted by Robert Moss

Arthur Koestler spoke of the Library Angel – that bookish spirit that makes texts appear at just the right time. I wish to speak now of a lesser, but highly active, spirit of stacks that we may call the Shelf […]

Spiritual gravitation

posted by Robert Moss

Your own will come to you. AE (the visionary writer and artist George Russell) summarized the law of spiritual gravitation in this phrase.  I find this a vital practical truth. He also wrote: I found that every intense imagination, every […]

Looking through Tarot windows

posted by Robert Moss

My first Tarot deck fell into my hands when I was 17. It was the old Rider-Waite deck, the only one publicly available in that era, and a very good set of cards for newbies. However, as I spread and […]

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

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
