Dreams & Crystals: *No guest speaker but Meetup will be on dreams and crystals.

  • December 17, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Dale Miesen's house

*Sorry, but our special guest, Dr. Gary Malone, cannot speak in December due to schedule conflicts. But, he will come in January and do a presentation on the contrasts of Jung and Freud dream analysis.  -I have materials to present the Jung dream analysis and the use of crystals to enhance dreams. -Dr. Gary Malone, Psychiatrist and Jungian dream analyst! -He is a Distinguished Fellow in the APA, Board Certified in General and Addiction Psychiatry, A Teaching Analyst in the Dallas Psychoanalytic Association, Associate, Clinical Professor UT Southwestern med school, 30+years in private practice. 

The basic function of dreams is to express the unconscious mind... and everyone dreams, even if you don't recall them.  Most dreams are largely symbolic.  This Meetup will help you to have, recall and understand dreams & active imagination. Carl Jung established time tested methods and means to recall and interpret dreams still widely used.  We will explore the "collective unconscious" of humankind and "archetypes" as well as personal symbolic meanings to help you decode the inner meaning of your dreams. -I will also provide materials on the use of crystals and gemstones to induce dreams and astral travel experiences.  *Bring a favorite crystal and a dream to share and discuss.

If you have had a lucid dream or astral experience that you would like to share and/or have some help to analyze, please bring a written account of the details or email it to me in advance.  (Write down what you feel it means and keep that to yourself for now.)  If you use crystals by your bedside or under your pillow, bring them for show and tell! "Lucid dreams" are when the clarity is exceptional and/or you know during the dream that it is a dream. Some are actually "astral experiences" that can be very insightful. "Active Imagination" is a conscious process to help understand the unconscious while conscious.  

-If you want to dream more often and recall them better, try these steps at night.  1. Try to go to bed about the same time each night and keep a tablet and pen at your bedside. 2. Set your intention when you get into bed by reading aloud a statement you have written out about your desire to have dreams, and to realize you are dreaming during the dream.  3.  If you realize that you are dreaming, try to awaken as it comes to an end, and to recall a few key things about it before you open your eyes. If you simply realize you had a dream, review it quickly before you open your eyes. 4. As you begin to wake up, recall any key details and write them down as soon as possible. 5. Do not try to make sense of it or spell check it, just get it down. Writing even one detail will bring more details to mind.  6. You can fill in the details once the key points or strongest impressions are written done.  It may take a few days to piece the whole dream together and come to a good understanding of it, or it could be very clear as you are waking up and recording it.

      I have a meeting about the same time in Arlington so I was going to be a little late for it. I'll drop the RSVP then add again if there is space on Tuesday, otherwise I will catch the contrast talk in Jan. Looked up some stuff on the web on crystals and dreams and found some interesting info in the mean time.

    I did this the first time in a high school Psych class and after just 2 days or so the recall was flowing pretty well for the last dream. When I practiced it regularly I could start to recall more than one dream.

      And I am happy to say it still works well. After retiring last night and thinking my intent to have and remember dreams it worked. I woke up from a dream this morning and was able to jot some notes down. Need to get the think about it before you open your eyes part down, but it seemed to be something of a lucid dream in the end, and I woke up thinking about it so that part was close. It was an interesting one that had feelings/emotions associated with it. Tomorrow I will spend all of the reflection time on the dream with my eyes closed.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
