i got the inspiration to dream a solution from a discussion i had with my awesome roommate, who mentioned Asclepions, centers dedicated to the god of healing, Asclepius, and designed for dream healing pilgrimages.
interestingly, i woke up with a bunch of business ideas and as i was writing in my journal, i noticed my shoulder felt MUCH better…
which confirms (for me, anyway) that it was metaphysical discomfort.
here’s how it went down:
i did a little pre-sleep reading, as per my routine, and then added a simple request:
oh <insert your own word for Supreme Consciousness>, please send me a dream healing solution for my shoulder… and any suggestions for how i might serve the needs of the world.
i popped out of the bed at 5:55 am, to pee, and then to write down all the ideas that started flowing into my consciousness. oh the gratitude.
just to be clear, my shoulder isn’t perfect: i am still observing my chaturanga moratorium. but it is a huge improvement over yesterday.
and those ideas… oh, big things to support your modern urban yoga lifestyle coming in the new year. announcements coming in about a week.
“An Abaton was an incubation room where the patient would pray to Asclepius, and then go to sleep to receive a dream…. The patients’ cure would be spontaneous or the answer to their healing would be found within the dream.” source
and more on sleep temples in general
p.s. i would love it if you would share your comments or questions below
share your experience with any dream healing work you’ve done
