Stimulation of dream activity, mental conflict resolution therapy.
Therapy time: 45 minutes

“Each dream is an information and control organ and therefore the most effective remedy in building the personality.” (Grundwerk I, 114)
“The dream carries a piece of involuntary psychological activity, which has just enough consciousness to make it reproducible in the waking state. Among the emotional phenomena the dream presents perhaps the most “irrational” setup. It seems to have inherited a minimum of the logical connectedness and hierarchy of values, which the other contents of consciousness demonstrate, and it is therefore less obvious and tangible. Dreams that are a satisfying combination of logical, moral and esthetic aspects are rather the exception. Usually the dream is a peculiar and foreign structure, characterized by many ‘bad traits’, like lack of logic, dubious morals, ugly design and obvious contradictions or nonsense. Therefore we often push them aside as stupid, nonsensical or worthless.” (Grundwerk I, 169)
“The dreams contain images and mental associations, which we have not created consciously or on purpose. They arise spontaneously, without our involvement and are thus a psychological activity exempt from volition. The dream therefore really is a highly objective or yet better a natural product of the psyche, and thus we can expect clues and allusions about certain basic tendencies of the emotional process from it. As the psychological process of life – like any process of life – is not merely a causal process but also an outcome oriented, purposeful event, we can expect from the dream, which is nothing else but an illustration of the psychological life process, hints of an objective causality as well as of objective tendencies .” (Grundwerk 3, 15f.)
Let us first keep in mind that a variety of research has made it possible today to shed light on the darkness of the nighttime symbols. Let us also acknowledge that our „dream power“ works differently from the logical intellect, much more subtle and much better than our waking consciousness. We have to study the language of dreams in the same way that we study foreign languages.
The Dream Program facilitates this learning and provides life with the necessary frequencies. I want to emphasize once again that the dream which we can remember is a necessity for the human development.
Joseph Murphy said: “The language of the subconscious is a different one than that of the conscious.” The language of the dream expresses the space- and timelessness of the human beingness.
The dreams that the Dream Program generates are exclusively and specifically related to the dreamer. The program enables us to open the “doors to the subconscious” in order to transport long gone conflicts back into consciousness. There they can be recognized resolved by the use of knowledge and dream symbolism. Dr. Max Segeth, Ph.D. – a life coach and dream researcher – has developed the “Self Interpretation of Dreams” or SID. He says:
- The dreamer always dreams of him/herself.
- Each dream is connected to events and situations in the dreamer’s life.
- The dream does not ask not too much of us, but decisions and solutions experienced during the night are in accord with the dreamer’s abilities and options.
- Only the dreamer can interpret and comprehend his/her dream.
To do that people have to re-learn their sensibility for the image. First they have to take the stories of the night literally and then they can compare them to the images of waking consciousness. This enables us to quickly understand the convoluted sequences of the images. Initially, it is good to have assistance in that endeavor and that assistance is provided by the Dream Program.
The opening of the subconscious and the resulting images usually show themselves very clearly, so that over time the dreamer is able to interpret the meaning of the dream him/herself.
