I'm very interested in how LD can be used to directly work with the unconscious and to bring about deep psychological integration and unfoldment.
I have attempted dream work in the past from a psychodynamic framework, but I have horrendous dream recall, and I cannot get anywhere looking for meaning within dreams after the fact. The exception is the one or two big dreams I have a year.
I have LD'ed a half dozen or so times in the past. Most of the time briefly. The biggest one was as a child, where I found myself in the movie Aliens shooting them with no fear of harm, even though it seemed real.
I have been keeping a dream journal for a week now, and I swear that I was close to becoming aware in a dream several nights ago.
I have one question, does this tend to be more difficult for people who don't tend to remember dreams? I literally can only count on one hand the amount of dreams that I remember or affect me, annually. I haven't had a nightmare since I was a child. I'm 29. But I notice that when I'm working with a part of myself in waking life (see Internal Family Systems), or when I'm turning a corner with myself, I tend to have larger, more symbolically relevant dreams that I actually remember.
Another issue is that I have a subconscious fear of the dream world. It's like the fear of the dark. I fear an unstable environment, or that there's some malevolent forces that may overwhelm me. Such as how in the dark you may imagine something there to get you. I wonder if this creates a block for me?
