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?

Whether in meditation on a dream symbol or an ego, the practice contains three important principles that are essential to the path of spiritual initiation.

Imagination refers to the perception of images. Inspiration is the recognition of symbols, feeling inspired in one's consciousness toward a given symbol received in meditation or in dreams. Intuition is cognizance of the symbol's meaning.

When meditating on dreams, we concentrate on the images we received in the experience, or the symbols that emerged in our oneiric consciousness while physically asleep. This is imagination. Inspiration is the reaction or response of our consciousness to a given symbol, such that we feel there is some important meaning to a given image we have received. Intuition is comprehension and understanding of what the dream entails. When we have comprehended the intrinsic meaning of a dream experience, that is comprehension or intuition.

When we meditate on the ego, we also retrospect the day through images (imagination), listening to our heart's understanding of the importance of specific events and how we erred (inspiration), and when concentrating on a given defect in order to grasp how it imprisons our consciousness, we arrive at understanding (intuition) through the grace of the Divine Mother.

We must always pray to our Divine Mother in every moment of our life, that is how She will inspire us in physical daily routines in order to prepare us for meditation and dream yoga.

Samael Aun Weor explained the meaning of many symbols throughout religions because he was a Master of Samadhi and knew how to access this knowledge within the internal dimensions.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"

What can we do if we are fulfilling Imagination and Inspiration but not Intuition?

Imagination, Inspiration, and Intuition are the three obligatory paths for the Initiation.

We reach these ineffable heights by means of Concentration, Meditation, and Samadhi. -Samael Aun Weor, Igneous Rose
Continue to concentrate your consciousness on the image that inspires you, open your mind and heart to the Real, and your Innermost, in the appropriate and precise moment, shall provide you with comprehension, which is like a strike of lightning. The disciple has the humble and joyful experience of illumination, that comes upon the heart suddenly and with the least expectation. Comprehension, or intuition, is an eureka moment.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
