How we go to sleep and how we wake up in large part determines whether or not we can re-member our dreams.
It is suggested that our journey into the underworld is an adventure that does not fit well with the upper world's demands.
For instance, an alarm clock will knock dreams across the universe.
In many ways our idea of ourselves is dis-membered in our dreams. This makes it difficult to then bring them back to the surface and some how go through our day the same.
There is a mythical river Lethe which must be crossed in the underworld. This is the river of forgetting. We must somehow figure out a way to cross it as we awaken without forgetting our images.
So intention is the key. If you spend time on our site, read the Primer, and offer a wee prayer to the gods as you go to sleep about bringing the gifts from below, above, you will start to retrieve an image.
At first it won't be a full dream, just a slight shadow of an image. If the dreamer sees you are sincere then more will follow.
It's a way of living in this world.
