So what is a personal dreamland and how can you use that to further develop your own psychic abilities? When I try to describe this concept to those looking to explore supernatural talents for the very first time, I often invoke a familiar image from a well known Hollywood movie that I feel pretty aptly describes what one is at least to me anyway. The pop culture reference I use is a decent introduction to the idea of what a dreamland looks like, albeit with a good dosage of humor thrown in to boot. But in my opinion, it fits. Now, I’m not suggesting that you enter a cave and seek out your power animal or anything like that. But I often use this scene in lectures and discussions to explain what I tend to see in my mind when I go about crawling into my own psychic head space. So bear with me for just a moment while I digress a bit and geek out for just a moment.
In the 1999 David Fincher film Fight Club that almost everyone on Earth has seen by now, the character of Marla Singer played by Helena Bonham Carter encourages the film’s protagonist played by Edward Norton to enter a safe place in his mind. In the film, its referred to as his cave. In the scene below, she talks Norton into his cave to meet his power animal in an event taking place only in the character’s mind. Hilariously, Norton’s power animal turns out to be a penguin who commands him to slide and then shoots off into the water. The experience leaves Norton alone in his cave feeling somewhat powerless and dejected. Fight Club is one of my all time favorite films and this scene ranks up there as one of the movie’s very best. Please take a quick look if you’re unfamiliar with it.
Now, going into your dreamland doesn’t have to involve caves, power animals or anything else that doesn’t work personally for you but this clip from Fight Club certainly nails the concept of what a dreamland can look like. Your dreamland can be any place you choose to think of as long as it puts you in a state of calm and allows you to focus your mind on the task at hand. A dreamland is often used to prepare for the casting of spells and enchantments and to get into an almost meditative or subconscious state. Its a bit like dreaming yet while still barely awake, thus the name. Its not so hard to master entering this sort of trance.
To forge your own dreamland, you simply collect some imagery and thoughts that work for you. The idea of your very own dreamland should be very private and personal and it should be a place that you go alone. Accidentally dragging thoughts of other people into your dreamland will only distract you, cause you to lose mental focus and be unable to tap into its power. You should settle on one singular image of a place and practice going there over and over until you have the ability to quickly invoke the setting inside your head and place yourself within it.
I don’t usually have such a hard time getting to my dreamland. The process generally only takes me a few minutes to achieve. I do keep a picture of a place that reminds me of that space and anytime I find it difficult to reach I usually end up meditating on this image. While I found my own personal dreamland image quite by accident, you can find one anywhere. Try using google images to search for terms that remind you of a calming place and see what you get. Using an image or set of images can be very power and can assist you in burning a specific idea of your dreamland into your mind. This should help you slide into the head space you are looking to achieve with more of a sense of ease. If you don’t have time for all that here are a few sample dreamland pictures that you could try.
Remember that you will want to use any dreamland pictures you settle on to help you clear your mind. Use them anytime you are trying to get into a state of readiness before attempting to use your psychic power. Also, your dreamland should be a constant place every time you go to visit it. This will help you channel your mind to a consistent image and space. Like a river your mind should always be flowing forward but having a set point of entry will allow you to become more powerful over time. Got something to say about your own dreamland?
