In Reply to: How to Stop Nightmares??? posted by Kate on January 10, 1999 at 19:54:19:
In the Primer, called DreamAges, on this site there is a page on the Beast. It is our assumption that Nightmares are your allies. Not like we have been taught to believe, but just the opposite. We tend to fear what we avoid and avoid what we fear. Well the unconscious doesn't play by those rules and keeps trying to bring us what we have banished. When you start to greet the night mare and see it as your ally you access a wealth of previously forbidden material. Remember, when Beethoven was in the throes of the last symphony and quartets, he was wandering around the streets like a madman possessed. When it comes to the creative and poetic, we must embrace the nightmare, not fear it.
