Homeopathy Tips for 12/08/15 Dreams

Dreams are a part of everyone’s lives. In our repertory an entire section of the mind has been devoted to dreams. Why would this be so significant when a dream does not seem to be even related to reality?
We often use dreams in repertizations as a way to understand the person. Sometimes a significant dream or recurring dream can have an important impact on understanding the case.
It is common for a person to dream much more after taking a remedy or after changing potencies. This is because the dream comes from the subconscious state of the person. All aspects of mind are under the influence of the vital force. Hahnemann stated that the vital force rules with unbounded sway. This means it will effect ALL aspects of a person including ALL aspects of the mind. When the vital force is inspired by a remedy the dream world will reawaken also.
Dreams are infiltration of the subconscious into the conscious. The subconscious rules much more of our existence that we believe. Faint notions, moments of inspiration or doubt can come from the subconscious mind. We rarely make note of these. But when the subconscious speaks to us in sleep there is no conscious mind to override the subtlety of the subconscious.
The significance of the dream can be minor or major. It all depends on how we remember the dream and the impact it has on us. When provings are done with remedies many times dreams can tell much about the inner world of the energy of the remedy. These are always recorded and many themes can emerge.
When receiving a case I often ask about any recurring dreams a person may have. I find this does not usually determine a remedy (remember it is ALWAYS necessary to know what is asking to be healed) but can often add to confirmation of a remedy. In rare instances it may be the true glimpse into the purest expression of the dis-ease though. In such cases the dream may be key to the case.
Always ask about dreams in the initial consultation. In the first follow-up again ask about dreams. It is often one way to determine if the person has been responding to the remedy. If they report that their dreams have been remarkable, active and vivid it usually indicates that the subconscious mind has been inspired and is working to bring resolution to the conflicts of life. This is a major part of the healing response. Just as a dream may be confirmatory to the remedy prescribed, dreams may also be confirmatory to whether the remedy is working or not.

    My experience with dreams has been that in the follow up when asked about their dreams, the client will often report strange, weird or just different dreams from what they normally experience- when the remedy is incorrect- and their dreams are now a proving symptom of the remedy they were given. The nature of their dreams has been altered or changed and the theme of the dream is directly linked to the remedy which can be found in the matching rubric. So this is a guide that tells me that the rx was probably incorrect and I need to find a more suitable rx that will reflect the person’s original dreams. Or if the dreams were not mentioned or unremembered during the initial consult, and now the dreams are, and often they are scary or unusual or worrisome, then this is a red flag too. So the dreams are important to check on and can help decide whether to continue with the rx or change it, though all the signs and symptoms must be checked to properly evaluate the remedy and see if it is the best match for the person.
