Dreaming to Know


Dreams are a good way to know.

But it must be remembered that dreams normally are not about anything literal.  The subconscious, the source of your dreams, communicates in symbols.  


In some indigenous tribes the clan meets in the morning to discuss their dreams of the night.

They are considered to be cryptic messages for the community.  


If you think of dreams as archetypal symbols, that is true.  It is how the tribe interprets the symbols that get the message that is apropos for the community.  This, as in the general use of archetypal symbols, allows them a way to get past the blocks of the truths that they know but can not see.


This also true of the individual.  Do not look at your dreams as literal.  Do not take them at face value.  This is a way to see past the conscious blocks, blocks that obscure your knowing.


Many writers about dreams suggest that you write down your dreams each morning.  That will help you to remember the dreams and symbols.  It will also create a fuller memory of the night dreams over time.  


You always dream.  That is part of the sleep cycle.  When someone says that they do not dream, it is just that they do not remember their dreams.  


When you first get up write the dreams, and over time you will find that you are writing more.  How many times have I had an informative dream when I woke up?  I thought I would consider it latter only to find that I had forgotten it or most of the details.  


I had a man ask me about a recurring dream he had been having.  There was a model T Ford car driving up in front of him.

He could not see who was in the car, and then it moved on.  


I asked him what he thought of when he thought of a model T.  He instantly said he thought of his father who drove a model T.   


I said,  “There you go.   What is your dad trying to tell you when he  comes and moves on?”  


The man had been thinking about changing something in his life.  His dad came and moved on.  It was time to move on.  It was time to follow the lead [message] from his departed father.  


His dad had come into his head as a type of chthonic symbol.  
The man with the model T dream knew that he was protected to change and moved on at that time.  The best way to hear that message for him was through symbolically his father.  So that is the way the subconscious symbolized it.  This blends with the methodology of guardian angels.


About The Author

Dr. Bill in San Antonio, TX, holds six degrees in religious studies including a Ph.D. and a Th.D. He holds several other certificates and certifications. He has been what some call a professional student.

Raised mostly in rural south and south-central Texas, he is equally at ease on the ranch, in the woods, in meditation, or metaphysical pursuits.

He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry.

He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions.

His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics.

He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today.

As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations.

Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes.

Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality.

Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective. This rare insight has been a boon to him and as he works to help you can be a boon to you
