Dreams & Healing
An article written by Frank Lorentzen 2012 for a Geman magasin
All healing processes are reflecting themselves into the dreams. By
looking at the dreams it is possible to follow and adjust a healing process.
As a healer I have been working with the dreams for 35 years. Dreams are
a very useful tool related to healing and a natural part of every deeper
healing process. I define healing as “the letting go of fear”. The healing
dreams will always work in the direction of “the letting go of fear”.
Together with a lot of other healers worldwide I had found out, there
is a great connection between the aura and the dreams. When there is a
change within the dreams, it reflects itself into the aura. I got the skill
to “see” the aura and by this gift I have been able to follow the healing
processes in dreams & aura for many years. For a deeper explanation
look in my book “Die Energiefelder der Aura” which is available on www.amazon.de.

The healing aspect between dreams & the energy fields of the
The dreams seem to use the same themes and situations, with different
variations from person to person. Those themes and situations are called
“archetypes”. An archetype is a common symbol or a collective symbol and
it operates in the fields C.G. Jung named “the collective unconscious”.
The archetypes are specially reflecting themselves into the chakra system
within the aura. The different chakras are connected with special archetypes.
By being aware of those archetypes in dreams, it is possible to relate
them to the chakras and body areas, which is very helpful when we work
with dreams. Further down in this text there is an over view of the archetypes
related to the chakras.
An example: At the root chakra at the bottom of the spine the archetypes
“the elephant” and “the horse” are connected. They represent the power
within the autonomic nerve system, which is connected to all the deepest
survival instincts. Many people who got the feeling of being insecure many
times have troubles within this chakra and body area. They are using a
lot of energy to fight against this feeling. If a person starts to be conscious
of this problem, a healing process starts. It shows up as a healing initiation
dream, which comes from the spiritual layer of the aura, where it starts
a healing process, which always is a coming down on earth process. It will
by the time coming closer to the core of the problem. When the healing
process has come close enough, the person will dream about a snake, where
the dreamer and the snake have a deep eye contact. The snake symbolises
the fear within the autonomic nerve system. The eye contact in dreams indicates
that the person now is mature enough to confront the fear within the autonomic
nerve system. The last step in the healing process comes, when the person
is dreaming that a snake bites her or him. This shows that the person has
defeated the fear that made her or him insecure. This is a typical healing
process and it links very well to the myth below.
In the ancient Greek, the GOD of healing, ”Askepilos”, told the sick
people, who came to his temple to seek help against illness and problems,
they had to stay in his temple until a snake had bite them in a dream.
After this they were allowed to leave his temple. They were cured.
If a healing process shall succeed, we need to understand the nature
of the dreams otherwise it can be difficult to work correctly. What is
the function of the dreams? What is a meaning of a dream? How can we learn
to interpret a dream? Is it possible to learn the meaning of the many symbols
The function of dreams
Freud and C.G. Jung said: “That the dreams were complementary to the
reality. The dreams primary function is to keep the mind and the personality
within a balanced state. 90 % of all dreams have this function. If we weren’t
allowed to dream we would simply get mad. To keep the mental balance the
dreams are using their complementary function. If we got unbalanced attitude
to life it will shows up in the dreams as the opposite of this unbalance.
If a person suppresses his anger it will show up in dreams as angry animals
or persons, where the anger is pointed against the dreamer. This is the
normally function of dreams. The healing processes always start, when a
person begins to acknowledgement a bad attitude to life. The complementary
dreams are helping a person forward to this position of acknowledgement.
The complementary dreams push by nature the personality in the direction
of this acknowledgement. In that sense the function of the complementary
dreams has an increasing healing function.
The dreams are many times also using situations from the present
day where those situations are brought into the dreams. This happens especially
if the personality has been touched by unconscious emotions. Many times
that kind of dreams is chaotic. But if you look closer to them, they always
try to make the dreamer aware of the unconscious emotions.
Self development and dreams
C.G. Jung has written at lot of how to work with the dreams. He divided
the dreams into three big areas. The shadow – The Animus/Anima dreams –
Dreams of wisdom.
The work with shadow is the first step related to self development,
which I had described in my book. The shadow is an unconscious emotional
aspect within the dreamer, who many times has the same sex as the dreamer.
It is called the shadow because of some unconscious emotional aspect is
laying in darkness. The shadow dreams come from the three lower chakras:
The root, hara and solar plexus chakra.
The animus/anima dreams are about the opposite sex. The female within
the male and the male within the female. There are many layers within those
dreams. When we have a real animus/anima dream we will never forget it.
It will make a very deep impression of the dreamer. The dreamer is dreaming
about the second part of himself. That kind of dreams comes from the heart
The dreams of wisdom are related to the inner guidance function which
often is represented by an old wise man or an old wise woman. In those
dreams interpretation is not necessary. The wise man or woman is telling
the dreamer directly what to do. Those dreams come from the upper chakras
especially from the crown chakra.
How to speed up the healing process.
Dreams seem to be released from different layers of unconscious energy
within the personality. The aura is a reflection of conscious & unconscious
energy. From my point of view the healing dreams are released from what
we call the layer of the spiritual potential within the consciousness and
the aura. As a healer I work to connect a person to this special healing
energy. When it succeeds it many times release a healing dream, which reflects
it self within the aura in certain energy circulations between the body
and the aura. Between the body and the aura natural energy circulations
are operating. The quantum science is calling them information streams.
I am calling them “interconnector”. By conscious using the awareness within
the circulation of an interconnector, it is possible to speed up the healing
processes, which shows up in the dreams and within the aura. The healing
processes without support from the interconnectors can last from 2 – 10
years. This is very individual from person to person. Healing processes
with support from interconnectors reduces the length of the time up to
70 % without any forcing of the healing process. I describe exercises with
the interconnectors in my book “Die Energiefelder der Aura”. I have
been working with dreams in that way for many years and I have never experienced
any bad complications in all those years. But I don’t recommend people
with mental illness to work with interconnector exercises. The working
with dreams released by the exercises with interconnector seems to be a
safely way for the modern way of life.
The symbol language of dreams
The next step in the understanding and interpretation of the dreams
is the symbolic language, which is a language as any other language. It
can be learned, and it needs the time and practice as any other language.
I suggest people to be a part of a dream group. It is my experience we
learn a lot through listening to other people’s dreams. There are a lot
of books about dreams and symbols and the interpretation of the symbols,
but many times on a superficial level. Within a dream group the learning
of the dreams symbolic languages becomes alive. The sharing aspect within
a dream group is very important if we want to learn the symbolic language
of dreams. In a dream group you relate to the dreams with the body, feelings,
intellect and intuition. Many times the information’s within a book only
relates to the intellect. But the dreams are operating on a deeper level
than the intellectual understanding.
The archetypes related to dreams and chakras and their different
You can work with you symbols from dream by related them to the chakra
system. An example: If you dream about a bird it relates to the heart chakra
and breast area. Place the bird in this body area and try to feel you contact
to this area. That is a simple way to work with dreams.
