The seeds of dreaming arise in every moment of the day, in body symptoms, problems, relationships, subtile feelings, interactions, random thoughts, and fantasies.
We're getting countless little cues from the unconscious every minute. All are signs from the world of dreaming. And, according to Mindell, we can be in this state of lucid dreaming all day long. In Dreaming While Awake , Mindell shows how to become aware of these "flirts" from the dreamworld and how to interpret their message. The goal, he says, is to be wide awake and lucid 24 hours a day in the midst of this unending dreamfield of information. Kabbalah and the Power of Dreaming. Catherine Shainberg. Lucid Dreaming.

After many years working as a therapist with people from all over the world, it seems to me that ignoring the Dreaming is an undiagnosed global epidemic. People everywhere suffer from a chronic form of mild depression because they are taught to focus on everyday reality and forget about the Dreaming background.
This depression is not the kind that makes you feel miserable. It is subtler than that. This depression is the sense that something in your life is missing even when outer things are going well. Most likely, no matter where in the world you live, many of the people around you feel that something is missing in life, even while they assume that life inherently lacks that special something. As soon as we have a day off, we feel the most common form of this subtle depression; we feel that life is not special but must simply be lived to completion.
While most people hope to do something meaningful, we do not really expect to be totally inspired and awestruck about life on a day-to-day basis. We do not realize that we are out of touch with the core energy of life, with the Dreaming.

Regardless of what our problems appear to be, ignoring the Dreaming reality is the origin of most depression and low spirits. Without Dreaming, you are living only half your life and seeing only half the world.

The simple solution to this global epidemic involves gaining access to Dreaming, in learning to sense the Dreaming in your body's motions and in the signals you send and receive in relationship with the human and natural worlds. Perhaps you are already trying to solve your mild chronic sense of depression by noticing your dreams, doing meditation, or following a spiritual tradition. These methods are important because they help you find meaning in life. But Dreaming is beyond even meaning; Dreaming is the origin of all your experiences, including your sense of meaning and your deepest beliefs.
According to Aboriginal Dreamtime traditions, all objects, people, and events are echoes of primal creative forces. Native people everywhere have respected and adored the Earth because they sensed that mysterious Dreaming forces created it. According to one Aboriginal elder, "The flint lives inside this stone like a dream inside your mind.
Its essence has been prepared inside the stone since dreamtime. Present-day physicists think differently. According to what they have been taught, physicists believe that a person observed the stone and consciously decided to create a flint out of it. In contrast to this belief, the Aboriginal elder says that the stone has the Dreaming within itself.
Therefore, the stone "interacts" with or "dreams" the hands of the "observer" to bring out the flint-like essence that was already present within the stone. In other words, you do not observe and do things; you are attracted to things and their Dreaming power orients your behavior. While modern physics and Aboriginal science differ, they also share certain ideas. Indigenous people speak about Dreamtime as the root and essential power from which everything else comes; quantum physicists speak of an invisible mathematical entity called the quantum potential from which reality arises.
As you may know, the quantum world cannot be seen or measured directly. As Werner Heisenberg once said, the quantum potential is a sort of "tendency for things to happen. Let us explore the meaning of tendencies, or quantum wave potentials, by looking at a psychological analogy. Right now, as you sit or lie reading this book, ask yourself what tendencies your body has to move in one direction or another.
Do not move yet; just take a moment to feel those tendencies.

Now, experiment with letting your body move in the direction of those tendencies. As you move according to your innermost tendencies, notice the movements your body is making. Do they have any significance for you? The point is that your tendency to move in one direction or another precedes the actual movement. You cannot measure your tendencies, even though you can feel them. Your tendency to move, which precedes your actual movement, is like the quantum wave potential, which is a tendency for things to happen before they occur and can be measured.

For most physicists today, the quantum world is essentially a mathematical dimension whose essence cannot be measured in terms of everyday reality. According to this theory, everyday reality comes from the mathematical dimensions of the quantum world, just as the real world does not exist in Aboriginal culture without tendencies, that is, without the Dreaming.
Most physicists do not let themselves make definitive statements about the quantum world because it cannot be directly measured. Yet some, like physicist Fred Alan Wolf, refer to the tendencies of the quantum potential in connection with the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime. Other physicists also speak of a Dreamtime world from which the real world emerges.

I discuss elsewhere how astrophysicist Stephen Hawking's new theory of "imaginary time" is a version of Dreamtime. Hawking's imaginary time cannot be measured, yet it is needed to explain what happened at the moment the real universe began. Other physicists, such as David Bohm, did not speak of a universe that began with imaginary time, but believed instead that the quantum potential is connected to the state of unbroken wholeness from which the everyday world arises or unfolds.
