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 does a deer and a mailbox mean in a dream?

A deere my dear
A deer my dear

Mailboxes have to do with messages we receive from others. A deer is a beautiful image that relates to instinctive affection or love. How these two play out in a dream is illustrated below.

Dream 309

The dreamer was a woman who went outside to get the mail. There was some snow and ice on the mail. There also were paper plates with little kid writing on it and. Wrapped inside the plates were parts of a maimed baby deer someone stuck in her mail box.

She looked up to explain what was happening to an inquiring passing neighbor. The neighbor mystifyingly and impatiently queried “already”? The neighbor became angry for some reason and the dreamer told her she was calling the police.


In dreams, water is emotion. Snow is cold water, i.e., cold emotion. This dream involves the mail which is where we receive messages from others.

Many letters to start out with “dear.” There literally is a maimed “deer” in the mailbox. It is written on material that typically involves nurturance, (plates usually hold food).

The messages looked like scribbling written by little kids. The neighbor apparently was seen by her as criminally insensitive so that she called the police. The trend of this dream implies that she were hurt by an insensitive childish thoughtless message or remark by someone she thought was a friend (her old lawyer?) who suddenly delivered an unkind message without realizing it.

The dreamer later verified the heart of this interpretation. She had just received an unfavorable message from a custody court involving her young children. She was dissatisfied to the point that she decided to get a new lawyer.

One surmises that the court and/or lawyer hurt her feelings to the point that he was no longer “dear” to her. Dreams often make a concrete almost clang association between words (deer=dear by analogy). She was advised to use dream incubation to help clarify her feelings toward the new lawyer.

Dream incubation is described in chapter 37 of my book, Dreams: Guide to the Soul which is at http://www.drstevenfox.com

Science Dreams

1793BE34-DC3C-46B6-BF27B6E745016856_article1209348005Many scientists, including Einstein, were affected significantly in their work by dreams. What follows is one of a multitude of examples:

“As a young mathematician in the 1950s, Don Newman taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology alongside rising star and Nobel-laureate-to-be John Nash. Newman had been struggling to solve a particular math problem: “I was … trying to get somewhere with it, and I couldn’t and I couldn’t and I couldn’t,” he recalled.”

Later that night, Newman had a dream in which John Nash appeared to him and told him the solution. Newman submitted a paper to a mathematics journal based upon this solution which was published. By the way, John Nash was the mathematics genius upon which the film “A Brilliant Mind” was based.

This process of using dreams to answer questions is called Dream Incubation which is described in my book, Dreams: Guide to the Soul in chapter 34 which is at http://www.drstevenfox.com


The Science of Dreams

Molecular Thoughts and DreamsDreams help you learn. Dreams affect your mood the next day. Dreams can occur during non-REM sleep. Dream logic is neurologically logical. You get in touch with physical and psychological pain in dreams. Dreams are very useful and informative. http://m.mentalfloss.com/article.php?id=51228

A way to use dreams functionality is through Dream Incubation described in my book Dreams: Guide to the Soul which is at http://www.drstevenfox.com (Chapter 34).

Asking Your Dreams Questions

dream questions

As noted in my book (Chapter 34), the process of asking your dreams a question is called dream incubation. I usually recommend to people who they keep track of dreams and ask the same question for several nights and maybe up to a week. Over the course of a week, often the images that are produced may form a pattern that is helpful in discerning what the dreams are trying to convey.

The subconscious uses a strange kind of logic which I explained in my book. If your subconscious did a really good job, it many times is not recognizable what the dream is referring to. Keeping track of the dreams over the course of a week can give further information and illuminate what the images are trying to convey.

I recommend to people that on the first night they write the question they want to ask their subconscious three times to entrench the question in their subconscious. On subsequent nights you merely need to think the question to yourself internally before going to sleep. The most important thing, of course, is to write the dream the next morning no matter how fantastic or strange it may seem.

Using the rules in my book are likely to be helpful in interpreting the dream. It also often is helpful simply to tell another person the dream because having to put it in words may make some insights more obvious to you.
