Send yourself a postcard from inside a dream

posted by Robert Moss

Our dream memories are often like postcards or snapshots from a journey. We have an image or two from an adventure that goes far beyond what we remember. You look at a postcard from your trip to Paris and there […]

Good Night, Irene, I’ll see you in my dreams

posted by Robert Moss

Collective challenges and catastrophes, like an earthquake, a tsunami, or a man-made disaster, roil the dream tides. Hurricane Irene is no exception. I’ve read several hundred dream reports since Irene, then rated a category 3 hurricane, was declared to be […]

It IS coincidence, and that means a LOT!

posted by Robert Moss

When do you say, “What a coincidence”? You think of someone, and they call you on the phone a minute later. You dream of a bear, and a black bear walks onto the road in front of you on a […]

Take the plunge into the sea of dreams

posted by Robert Moss

Among the Inuit, the strongest shamans are also the most gifted poets. One of the reasons spirit helpers flock around an angakok is that they are charmed and exhilarated by the shaman’s poetic improvisations. Inuit shamans have a language of […]

A good luck sign from the Speaking Land

posted by Robert Moss

The First Peoples of my native Australia talk of the Speaking Land. Listen to that phrase, and you’ll hear in it the understanding that nature is alive and conscious and will communicate with us in many voices if we will […]

A man who stands in his own way…

posted by Robert Moss

I’m thinking today about Thoreau’s wise and entirely accurate statement: “A man who stands in his own way will find the whole world is in his way.” How often do we bind ourselves and close off the paths of possibility […]

The future of imaginal healing

posted by Robert Moss

As we reclaim the skills of dreaming, imagery for healing will become central to our medicine. Advances in hard scientific research, especially in the fast-expanding field of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI) have helped to provide the mandate, because they supply overwhelming evidence that […]

Be your own dream interpreter

posted by Robert Moss

Don’t let anybody tell you what your dream, or your life, means. Dreams are power-full, and you don’t want to give this kind of power away. Similarly, an awakened life requires us to become the authors of meaning in our […]

The best way to understand a dream is to go back inside it

posted by Robert Moss

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 […]

Dream symbols: intruder at the door

posted by Robert Moss

Someone’s at the door. It’s the middle of the night; this can’t be right. You’re trying to hold the door shut, but what’s on the other side is strong. You try to call for help, but maybe they don’t hear […]

Put fish bones in the cuckoo clock & other dream guidance

What If? Healing regrets over paths not taken

In praise of dream fragments: tale of a red blob

posted by Robert Moss

Many of us in our society are undergoing a prolonged dream drought. Losing connection with night dreams is a serious malady of soul, in the eyes of indigenous elders. If you have lost your dreams, it may be because you […]

When the war is inside your body

posted by Robert Moss

In one of my workshops, a  woman I’ll call Lois shared a dream titled “War”. She was very agitated and upset as she retold it.  I am on patrol with six women dressed in green uniforms. We are all riding […]

Hummingbird Medicine: retreats that are good for the heart

posted by Robert Moss

I was leading a weekend workshop in the original California Gold Rush country, at a center just outside Coloma. The workshop was titled “Dreaming a Life with Heart.” In the first morning session, as always, I had people introduce themselves […]

St Jerome Bewitches Dreams and Dreamwork

posted by Robert Moss

For many centuries, the pretext for official Church hostility to dreams and dreamwork was the deliberate mistranslation of a Hebrew word in the first Latin version of the Bible. This was known as the Vulgate, and was the official Catholic […]

Source Code and the soul’s code

posted by Robert Moss

“Source Code” is a superior sci-fi action thriller, satisfying as entertainment while getting us to think about such small matters as what happens after death and whether the past can be changed. Captain Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal), a US Army […]
