Is there scientific evidence supporting telepathy and ESP in dreams.

Significant dream post 476: Feeling the flow of energy in life

The experiments in the following link involved “senders” transmitting an image while “receivers” reported what they saw in their dreams.  The Department of Defense and Russia have shown interest in these phenomena.

These results suggest that what you think affects people and the world around you.  After doing dream therapy for over twenty years, I am amazed at the insight dreams give about a dreamer’s life.  I have had married couples in therapy who had remarkably similar dreams on the same night.

I regularly have a dreamer “incubate” a dream to answer a significant issue or situation in their life.  My book, “Dreams: Guide to the Soul,” describes a dream incubation procedure that significantly raises the odds of having a dream that may help the dreamer with a problem situation.  The book is available at http://www.drstevenfox.com

We disregard dreams at our own risk.  I think dreams are often the result of thinking through problems in our life. Some think dreamers may enter another dimension where physical and emotional healing is more likely.  I know they were important in my multiple sclerosis getting better.  Here is the link showing some scientific evidence for telepathy:

What other dream interpretation books would I recommend?

I received the following email from a woman:

“Good evening, your book Dreams: Guide to the Soul has been so helpful in my journey in dream interpretation. It’s hard to find informative books that aren’t simply dream dictionaries and really relate to the subconscious. Can you guide me to any other resources to further my education in this? Thank you!”

The following was my response:

“Dear Mary,

I personally like Robert Johnson’s Owning Your Own Shadow because it is short. It is the best summary of that archetype that I’ve seen. That archetype is critical to change, of course. His other books are good too.

I like the old Jungian analysts. I would recommend anything by Marion Woodman or John Sandford. I have attended a workshop with Marion Woodman and she gives a good woman’s perspective of it all while Robert Johnson gives more the male viewpoint.

If you want to learn the basic archetypes, there’s nothing better than studying the Greek gods and goddesses. The best source of this which is related to Jungian psychology and dream work are books by Jean Shinoda Bolen Gods in Every Man and Goddesses in Every Woman. I went to a workshop by her and sent her a question by mail. She answered me with a two-page letter about how I might get over my multiple sclerosis.

In a different vein, I will be publishing MS Mission Remission: Healing Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds sometime in 2018. It details all of the 20 or so approaches I used to reach the critical point of sending the MS into remission.

All My Best,

Dr. Fox

Review of my 2nd book, “MS Mission Remission: Healing Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds”

health-us-research-genetics-sclerosis-16351

I have completed my first draft of “MS Mission Remission: Healing Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds” and received the following review of the first draft:

“MS MISSION REMISSION” by Dr. Fox was both a pleasure and an eye opener to the many aspects of how MS develops and can be managed.  The deep insights he provides into his personal and family dynamics are powerful indicators of how dis-ease can be instilled and manifest later in various ways, from psychological to physical trauma.  His ingenuity, spiritual insights and dogged determination to regain his life from the debilitating toll of MS is both inspirational and instructive.  A very good read from many perspectives!  -Dale Miesen, BA, Psycholgy & Philosophy”

To Send MS into Remission, You Have to Find What Works for You

Functional Healing of Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds Post 3:

It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Doesn’t Have Your Swing

In dealing with MS, it is likely that you will explore the edges of what is known. The internet is your ally and friend. I particularly liked the Massachusetts General Hospital Neurology discussion boards listed by disease/condition. You will get many ideas from these boards. Almost nothing works for everyone. Almost everything discussed worked for someone.
You have to find out if that particular medication and energy method/diet/exercise/lifestyle change works for you and is important to your recovery. Make sure it is a low-risk treatment. You want to gather as much information from medical or other professional sources that are available.
Doctors are willing to do experimental procedures as long as you indicate that you are fully informed. Additionally, with my doctors, I always assured them that they did not have to worry about a malpractice suit.
Any treatment that doctors pursued on my behalf in good faith and with my full consent would never be pursued in court by me, especially when I knew there was a good chance the treatment would not work.  My general rule for myself was that I would consider anything that had a three percent chance of helping and did no permanent damage. I was willing to accept temporary pain and inconvenience, if the procedure ultimately helped me and did no permanent damage. Your willingness to take risk and endure pain/inconvenience will determine what personal rule will work for you. I actively dreaded the idea that I ever would stop trying to improve my disability.
Accepting MS is not a clarion call to send up the white flag and go to sleep. Accepting multiple sclerosis means realizing what a physically, and in some cases mentally, burdensome situation you are in. It is like getting a flat tire on the interstate in the middle of a desert. You can bemoan that you have a flat tire. Whining will do you no good. Getting out of the car, getting outside of yourself and seeing what spare tire or parts you can find to fix the situation, is accepting that you have a flat tire and must do something.my
The difficult decision is whether to wait for help or to press on.  Information is vital. Communication is penultimate. As in the example above, it is important to set up a communication system.
In the case of the flat tire, you want a smartphone to get information, such as how far it is to the nearest gas station. You obviously need it to call for help. In the situation of having a major “incurable” illness, you want information from the internet, books, and experts so that you obtain the best medical and alternative care, as well as adopting the best personal practices (diet, exercise, sleep schedule, daily routine, recreation, and so forth).
I  was in a state of shock and surprised that the medical doctor did not tell me first instead of my wife. My wife was a physician and board certified psychiatrist. The doctor I supposed thought it was more prudent to tell my wife first. I now believe that he did tell me, but I did not want to hear any of it, so I repressed what he said. Being a psychologist does not guarantee that your mind will not defend itself by bold-faced use of repression.
Your subconscious is always measuring how much information you may be ready to accept.
His gut instinct was to make this a doctor-to-doctor consultation first, I thought. It was my hypothesis, that he did not want to endure another professional’s (I am a private practice clinical psychologist) reaction to a conundrum in his life. I thought his instincts were good. The real truth was my subconscious did not allow me to process the horrible news until I heard it from someone I loved, my wife. It is a blessing to have a significant other who tells you the truth, no matter what.

MS Healing Post 1:

The Thunder-clap 
 
I was having trouble with my eyesight. Double vision was new for me. I was dropping things I held for no reason. My balance was unsteady and I would sometimes fall down seemingly for no reason. My wife, being the board certified psychiatrist that she is, insisted that I consult with a neurologist.  Numerous tests and procedures were performed (to be described later). It was time for us to meet with the good doctor and hear the results.
When we went to obtain the results, the neurologist mumbled a few words at me and looked down at the floor while he spoke. I processed nothing of what he was saying to me. Repression is a remarkable phenomenon. He met with my wife for what seemed like a long time. Driving back from the doctor’s office to Arizona State University Student Health where my wife was the psychiatrist on the eating disorders team, Debby was uncharacteristically quiet.
When we drove into Student Heath and I stopped the car to let her out, I found out why.
“Well, I guess we will keep trying to figure out what is going on with me,” I said with resignation. “What are you talking about? The MS looks severe,” she said. Deborah never suffered a fool well.
“MS?” I innocently queried.
With disbelief Dr. Deborah Brogan said, “Didn’t he tell you that you have MS, multiple sclerosis?”
“What?” I asked.
Debby, answered, “You heard me. The doctor said you have multiple sclerosis.”
So it began, my fifteen-year journey through purgatory. I thought I must have made serious mistakes in a previous life. At the time it seemed as good an explanation as any for why I contracted multiple sclerosis, MS.
It turns out that I probably contracted multiple sclerosis because of conditions I endured in this lifetime which would include the cold climate I was born into in the Midwest, abuse as a child, drinking too much diet coke with aspartame, frequently having bronchitis, genetics, getting into a car accident when I was a 31-year-old, working out in a hot karate studio, etc. MS is a syndrome which I believe is ignited by a host of various factors coming together. I believe it to be the exception, rather than the rule, for multiple sclerosis in a particular person to be due mainly to only one causative factor. I think that is why MS must be fought on numerous fronts—it probably was caused by the totality of your life and now is affecting every aspect of your life.
At the time, I thought that I just wanted to return to my old self, the “I” your ego thinks of you as being. I never accepted the MS as being the real me. It was an adversary sent to test the real me. Little did I know how much my real self was going to change because of the battle, no the war, with multiple sclerosis.

What does a dog biting someone in a dream mean?

Dream 448: Getting Rid of a Friend that Bites

A woman told me the following before describing her dream:

I had a disagreement with someone that’s been in and out of my life. This person contacted me to tell me that I have the the power to fix it. I was asking for a sign if this relationship could be fixed or if this is a toxic relationship that I shouldn’t have in my life. [Before she went to sleep, she incubated a dream by asking for a dream that would indicate what she should do with this relationship and she had the dream described in the next paragraph]:

“In the dream,  my golden retriever bit a cousin’s daughter, which is totally out of the dog’s character. The daughter’s mother (also my longtime friend and patient I provide care for) told me I need to put the dog down. I woke up feeling conflicted. Oddly enough I went to sleep asking spirit for a sign and that’s the sign the I received!”

Interpretation 

I think the dream is voting that it is a toxic relationship that you should stay away from. Dogs are all about loyalty and the dream does a double entendre dream condensation on the theme of loyalty. Remember that each character in the dream is a part of your mind with women going more with emotions. Animals often represent our instinctive feelings. Dream condensation occurs when the dream is true on more than one level.

I think the woman represents your emotional common sense which says that, painful as it may be, you have to kill your instinctual loyalty (the dog) before you get bitten. The reason you put a dog down is because the dog has proven itself to be dangerous by biting someone. To me, this means you have to kill your internal loyalty to this person so that you do not get bitten again.

What does sand, your father, a plum tree, and orangutans represent in a dream?

 

orangutan-1358638

Dream 447: Stopping Monkeying Around 

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream last night. In the dream there was a plum tree with 5 orangutans.  They had their  backs to me. Then my father picked me up and ran with me because there was a lot of sand coming at us from behind. Then we tumbled and I was carrying my father. Then we ran to a truck and rode the sand waves.
What’s this mean ?”

Interpretation

This is a very interesting dream. A tree is a symbol of integration because its roots grow in the ground, it opens to the sky, and it is here on the level with us. The plum tree has several meanings in my world. First off, a plum is a fruit and a food that nurtures you. Also a plum is usually something especially appealing like a plum job.

I would guess that the orangutans are barriers to getting something favorable that nurtures you. Animals usually represent instincts, the dreamer’s instincts. In this case, I think the dream is signaling that too much monkeying around is keeping you from getting something you want that would be favorable to you like a plum position of some kind. I think the orangutan instinct is interfering because I think it represents “monkeying around.”

Sand usually represents impermanence as it can be blown around and it never provides a solid foundation. You do not want to just build sand castles as goals in your life to my way of thinking. From that standpoint, it can be seen as insecurity.

Your father in the dream represents an action part of your mind as men tend to go with actions. Fathers most often are the basis of your actions to some degree. Your carrying your father might mean that you need to be supportive of your actions you are taking to avoid being insecure and wanting to build your future into a more secure and semi-permanent situation. You may want to build something in your life that is not subject to the shifting sands of time.

It also has significance that there are five orangutans. In my world, five usually represents adding something on to your stable self (4 is a stable number and five is literally adding something to your stable self as 1+4=5.

I think the dream is wanting you to take life more seriously, stop monkeying around, and support your actions towards building something more permanent in your life.

In my world, trucks are associated with work and you escape the sand on a truck. I think the dream is saying that you have to work to build a future worth having.

What does carrying a bag or luggage aboard an airplane with your son mean in a dream?

id-100437911Image courtesy of 9comeback at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Dream 446: Wondering about carrying my baggage into the future

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream that I was at an airport waiting to be called for my flight.Then I was called,and I got up and picked up my black bag.I think I was traveling with my youngest son…”

Interpretation 

There is something almost spiritual about flight and usually has to do with your overall life goals. Picking up a bag could mean that you were worried about carrying “baggage” into your future. That your youngest son is in the dream usually means that you’re probably considering making some fairly major change. Each person in a dream is usually a part of your mind at the first level. Boys tend to go with actions while girls usually go more with emotions. That isn’the absolute, but is usually the case.

You are probably worried about how “baggage” from the past might affect that move. Unless you actually have a black bag, the color in this case could signal being worried about negative or depressing baggage being carried into your future. The type of action you may be considering would be related to the personality of your youngest son.

It is also possible that it is the condensation of two levels of the dream in the sense that the decision could involve your youngest son in some sense or how it would affect him. Again, the main thing is taking some action for your overall life goes intowards  the future and being worried about carrying baggage into the future and how that baggage might affect your future.

The dreamer later indicated that she had been looking for a job and was wondering how that would affect her and her youngest son’s future.

What could taking a boat joyfully across a lake of crocodiles mean?

two-crocodiles

Dream 445: Looking for my ambition

 A man dreamed he was joyful as he was crossing a lake on a boat. The lake was full of crocodiles. Nevertheless, he was thrilled to be on the boat.

Interpretation 

Water virtually always represents emotions in dreams. Crocodiles usually signal aggressive emotions or instincts. The aggression is the shadow side of this emotion. The positive side is that it also represents your “get up and go,” your desire to accomplish things.

You can use that aggressive energy for positive purposes. The other parts of the personality just need to put some limits on the shadow aspect of that aggressive Energy.

I view this dream positively. I feel that he is setting out on a voyage to find the “get up and go” to accomplish positive things for himself and the world.

How might anger over an ex boyfriend never changing be shown in a dream?

’

Dream 444: His never changing infuriates me

A woman had the following dream:

“I had a dream I was sitting on my bed talking with my ex and I herd a rustling under my bed. Out came a snake with tiger stripes. It bit him in the neck.  What could this mean?”

Interpretation 

Snakes usually represent change because they shed their skin. The type of snake usually indicates what kind of change it would be. That the snake emerges from under your bed  indicates that the dream is probably addressing change in a personal  and intimate relationship.

This is an aggressive tiger snake. This could mean that it involves him being aggressive in the relationship and/or it could involve you’re having anger towards him. I believe the dream condenses here and probably both  of those statements are true  to some degree. I think the dream could be signaling your anger over your ex never changing as well as indicating that he was aggressive in the relationship in his way of interacting with you.

It is likely that it is a dream of desire. You probably, within the relationship, wished that he would change seriously, which he never did. The snake was aggressive because maybe your boyfriend was too aggressive, in his way, and you understandably have anger over that.  For what it’s worth, where the snake strikes him suggests he was a pain in the neck.

The dreamer later told me that the interpretation was accurate.

What does a diamond represent in a dream?

1478152806144-1122606224

Dream 443: A diamond is forever

A woman dreamed that she was walking along and she noticed the diamond was missing from her finger. She thought she had lost it. A young boy then came up to her with the ring and gave the ring back to her.

Interpretation 

Each character in the dream represents a different part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Men tend to go with actions or a more action-oriented part of the mind. Women tend to go more with an emotional part of the psyche.

The maturity level of the character in the dream usually represents how developed either the action or the emotion is. That it was a young boy who returns the ring to her means that she is probably taking new action to confirm a commitment, an allegiance, a loyalty,  a close relationship, or even a job.

It is unknown whether this dream describes the current state of affairs or whether the dream is predictive. Only the dreamer will be able to discern the full meaning of this dream.

What do lions mean in a dream?

images

Dream 442: Your Inner Lions

I had a dream about a group of lions: A female and male leader, two males, two females and a lion cub. They were watching me from a cliff or a ledge. Then, they crawled down and started to run. As they ran , images of everything that has been bothering me appeared in the sky(weight, suicidal thoughts, hurt, etc). Finally they lead me to a cave, and the images in the sky disappeared. I followed them to a beautiful grotto inside the cave.

Then the lioness stood there on top of a hill near the opening of the grotto. Like she was waiting for me to follow her. I followed and we sat near a waterfall that was flowing into a lake. There were glowing fireflies and butterflies around us.

She spoke, and said to “release it”. I crawled over to the lake and threw up continuously into the lake.

She told me the animal kingdom is calling to me and that I must pay attention and listen to what the animals are telling me in my dreams.
She is one of the first but there will be many others that will help me in this difficult time.

After wards, I woke up at 3 am in the morning to throw up. And for the rest of the day I felt sick.

Does this have a deep meaning?

Interpretation

Yes, this is a deep dream or “big dream.” Animals usually represent the dreamer’s instincts. Having a lot of animals is a good sign that you have a lot of subconscious emotional energy you can use.

You have a plethora of lions within you. Lions usually go with strength and courage. Your subconscious is saying that you have balanced energy potentials as there are an even number of adult males and females. Males tend to go with action potentials while females tend to go with emotional energy.

The dream makes a strong case that your worries are not real and are just floating in the sky. Going into a cave typically represents going into your subconscious. Water is virtually always emotion. The dream is saying, I believe, that you have a spring well of flowing positive emotions you can use to refresh yourself.

The cub lion is present because the dream wants you to grow in inner strength and courage even more. Vomiting is getting rid of things making you sick. I believe your subconscious wants you to rid yourself of toxic emotions that are making you sick.

Your inner lioness is urging you to use your instincts and to go with your gut feelings as much as you can given other factors.

I am finishing my personal story and sojourn to health by putting MS into remission with the help of the universe/God. It will be my second book showing that dreams were an important part of that journey. My personal psychology enters into the picture a lot. I basically see years of physical abuse as laying the foundation for having the foundation for contracting the chronic illness of multiple sclerosis. Amazon will publish it first as an ebook. The name of the book will be something like MS Mission Remission: Healing Severe Chronic Multiple Sclerosis Against All Odds.
