      Dream Helper Ceremony (8 minutes)

      This is an old post of mine.

      I'm puting it here so I can go to an Internet Cafe today and make 5 copies for my new friends at a dream group I joined. One woman has asked me to incubate a dream for a problem she has. I don't know anything about her or her problem. I will follow this to attempt it.

      Hi iasder’s*

      I find this very interesting! What do you think?*

      Dream Helper Ceremony

      (8 minutes)*
      The Dream Helper Ceremony*

      Transcription*

      (0:20)*
      Ok, what I would now like to do is share a sort off, an applied application of psychic dreams. This is an activity that Henry Reed and I started way back maybe 20 years back. It came from at Maimonides; I had been exposed to having been a subject there.*

      Having been a fairly successful subject I knew it was possible to dream about a target picture, that somebody was looking at and trying to send, to me.*

      (0:50)*
      Henry Reed who was associated with ARE, and this was one of the month long camps that they have down at Burrow Retreat. And Henry and I were trying to figure out what we could do that would be of interest for the group. So we tried to come up with a variation of Maimonides, obviously we don’t have an EEG we don’t have all the other facilities.*

      But what we would do is see if we could modify this paradigm.*

      So instead of having a target picture that was randomly selected, so that someone would dream about the picture, we now had a target person.*

      (1:2cool*
      frequently the way we would do is just ask would anybody like to be the target person.*

      To be this target person you had to have some kind of personal problem you’d like help with. And a serious one, not like should I buy a red car or just a blue car. But something, the kind you would go to a counsellor or a friendly bar tender or someone to talk to about it.*

      And if we had more than one we would usually do sort of an I Ch’ing, we would put the names in a hat and then go through and pull it out an assume the universe intended that person to be the target individual, the focus person, that night.*

      (2:04)*
      Ok, then what we would do is we would have a group of like 7 to 10 people. Then we draw then through this sort of I Ch’ing thing.*

      Then we make a personal commitment. So If I were a helper I would say:*

      “I not going to have, I Renounce the right to have any Bob dreams tonight. No Bob dreams tonight. If the person (target-focus) is Mary I’m just going to have Mary dreams tonight.”*

      And then we’d go with the person who is the focus person that has now been selected gets together with and shares something. So they might, If it were me I might let em where a watch or if I had a locket or something. Lacking anything else at leased you could just sign a piece of paper and have your energy for them so they could go back and put it under their pillow that night.*

      (2:52)*
      Now, to be sure that this doesn’t change we had this person write down a statement as to what their issue was that they were looking for help on.*

      Ok, then they keep dreaming during the night and then they get together next morning. And they start saying what their dreams were.*

      (…)*

      (3:44)*
      … then the nice thing about this is, usually, whoever is the target person is kind of like the lightening rod for this particular group. They have a problem that kind of reflects that particular group at that particular time.*
      So now you can go back and see how did they have their dreams and what that might be saying about themselves, even though the way it is presented is your going to dream for Mary, you are still going to have stuff in there about yourself.*

      (4:14)Next,*
      So now these are the kind of helper’s reports.*

      Ok, try and see if you can pick up on the theme. I think you will be able to.*

      We have a black car driving into a white hall.*

      Some one is hesitant to accept an Oreo cookie.*

      Another on has an ice-cream cone with one scoop of chocolate and one of vanilla.*

      One has black and white keys on a piano keyboard.*

      Martin Luther King preaching in front of the White House.*

      Anyone getting any hint about any kind of scene that is going on?*

      Okay and there were these other additional things:*

      One had a watch that was running slow*

      Some one else was watching something else in slow motion.*

      Okay, next,*
      (5:05)*
      So what this turned out was, the problem was:*

      This was a young black woman dating a black man and she was very concerned about what her family was going to respond to this relationship.*

      So that what we were suggesting was, you know, go slow, because of all those themes about slow motion. Go slow til you feel in is pretty solid then go ahead and mention to your parents.*

      Okay, next*
      (5:36)*
      Now what does anybody get from this?*

      Now the focus person gets to feel very accepted because here are all of these other people giving up a lot of there sleep that night. Because they are trying to dream and do a good job of it. So every dream helper winds up loosing some amount of sleep.*

      (6:00)*
      They are also taking on this other person’s problem that was something that they weren’t too thrilled about or it wouldn’t be a problem to begin with.*

      So now someone is basically saying “Hey, I accept your problem, whatever it was, past abortion, or you stole something sometime and spent some time in jail, or whatever it would be*

      But you accept them on that, because your dreaming about it and taking it on, you are owning it you are not rejecting them. You are incorporating it into your own dreams so that it is very reassuring for them. And so they take the different kinds of suggestions that come through and see whether there are any additional things that might help the focus person with helping to understand there issue better.*

      (6:44) And so now you can see maybe there is something about inter-racial relationships that I need to pay more attention too.*

      Now, these are all equally good as far as picking up on a black white theme.*

      (7:00)*
      You know (here Bob is pointing to his white board, I think)*

      …all these are equally good on picking up on a black-white theme. Oreo cookie, classic black-white, you know ice-cream cone, one scoop of chocolate one scoop of vanilla, back- white. We got black and white keys on there, you know black-white. Martin Luther King in front of the White House.*

      So we’ve got black-white, black-white, black-white, but which one is best? See you can’t say one is better than the other but they do display very different attitudes!*

      This person won’t accept the Oreo cookie.*

      This person takes the ice-cream cone and “slurp-slurp” “Oh! This is so good, this is so good”.*

      So they are equally contributing to what the picture or what the issue was but doing it in quite different ways of acceptance verses rejection. So now if you take the time for yourself you can learn something maybe about your own inter-racial attitudes that you might not otherwise have had to deal with (end of 8 minute YouTube)*


      Robert Van de Castle and his partner Bobbie Ann Pimm want to run a similar experiment at the Crowne Plaza Resort, Asheville, NC with 10 participants on 25 and 26 of June 2010*

      It will Be held just before the Carolina Dream Gathering which is the 27th Annual International Association for the Study of Dreams Conference 27th June to 1st July, 2010.*
