The book Dream Yoga written by Samael Aun Weor, the older version, has a list of dream symbol meanings. To my understanding it has been removed from the later versions of the book, with good reason. However, I would like to know how Samael Aun Weor managed to interpret the symbols? Were they based off of his own dream experiences or did he train specifically for that? I am interested in the investigation of my own dream symbols as this is something that I feel the need to do but because of my profound ignorance I don't know exactly how to go about uncovering the meanings.
There are a bunch of dreams which stand out to me, some which have repeated over and over while others have simply engraved a deep impression within my Consciousness, others I have forgotten about but luckily have them written down.
In the morning I do retrospection of my dreams, remembering the events which have unfolded, it is much easier from a sleepy state while still in bed, going over the events which are still fresh, some deeper buried dream events may spring to the surface however there are some which I cannot reach, for now, due to their depth. Now this practice itself is just a recollection, to remember the events, just as we do in retrospection meditation before going to bed. My understanding is that we need a specific type of practice to gain comprehension of the dream symbols, is this the same practice that we do when working on the ego? In this case we would be meditating on a dream symbol rather than an ego. Is this the way or do we need to have a deep understanding of Kabbalah to understand anything?
