A - "Depending upon the physical condition of the entity, and that
which produces or brings the dreams to that bodys forces. The better
definition is this: correlate those truths that are enacted in each and
every dream that becomes a part of the entity of the individual and use
such [for the purpose of] better development; ever remembering that
develop means going TOWARD the higher forces, or the Creator." Cayce
"DREAM is but ATTUNING an individual mind to those individual
storehouses of experience that has been set in motion. Hence at times
there may be the perfect connection, at others there may be the static
of interference by inability of coordinating the own thought to the
experience or actuality or fact set in motion. Hence those experiences
that are visioned are not only as has been given to some, to be
interpreters of the unseen, but to others dreams or as dreamer of
dreams, to others as prophecy, to others healing, to others
exhortation, to this and that and the other; yet all are of the same
spirit. Hence this is the manner as may be seen. This has little
reference to BODY-DESTINY, but much with the MIND." Cayce (262-83)
(A) There is given in the experience of each individual soul the activities throughout its sojourn in the earth, in its varied relationships, in its varied activities. As ye have in thine material understanding as the Master gave, in the evening when it is red ye say that the lowering of the bright sun is the sign that has been the experience of many through the ages. Hence in thine own experience thou hast been warned as respecting these, as expecting conditions that might come to thee. Let that as would be a useful, applicable experience be gained from same. Do ye trust wholly, and do ye act in that manner, "Lord, let that be that is necessary for mine own SOUL development"? Then keep in the way that maketh for the more perfect understanding. Just a warning. Dreams are of many natures. Dreams, as we have given, are either from the material activity of individual influences attempting to be assimilated, or warring with those influences within the body, and bring visions or experiences that are at times called nightmares, night horses or the like. Those are experiences also through which the subconscious forces are constantly aware of what has been the experience, and it comes as an influence for foreseeing or for premonition or experiences. And necessarily unless they are impressed more than once become rather as dreams. Then there are experiences of the soul that has been awakened to the knowledge which has been or may be written upon same, the experiences of the entity as an entity through its sojourns - and these are given then in emblems or in visions that are to be and are a part of the individual entity. Such became the case here. In the meeting of same, trust in Him who IS the power, who IS the strength, and abide by His judgments - not thine.
TO ALL: Pray ye that the Lord of the harvest find ye not idle but up and doing, with a might, that thy mind, thy heart, thy hands find to do. For the Lord will not always tarry. For He will come as a thief in the night. Are ye ready for His coming? Hath ye fulfilled that as has been purposed in self to do? Why tarry ye in the waitings - tomorrow - tomorrow - tomorrow?
Let thy heart, thy mind, be comforted. For the Lord is in His holy
temple, and is merciful to those that show mercy; patient with those
that show patience." Cayce (281-027)

Question: What are dreams? What is hypnosis? Are these phenomena of any significance in understanding the nature of Mind or the illusions of the sense-perceptions?
Answer: Dreams are the result of not being asleep. Sleep means more or less lowering of the vibration potential passing through your brain - not the Mind. The purpose of that lowering of potential is to let your senses - not Mind - relax and rest for an interval so they fully stop all action of thinking and imagining.
In utter relaxation, one cannot dream, for all of the memory records which are stored in the brain have no motivating force behind them to set them in motion. When you are fully awake and have that full motivating force flowing through your senses, you can pick any record you choose from those stored memories, but when you are not quite asleep a little current flows through your stored records and awakens parts of many of them without your power to control them. This strange mixture is what you call dreams, and the clarity of them, or their vagueness, is dependent upon the power which motivates them and the fact that they are uncontrolled.
Hypnotism is the power generated by one person to compel another to act in accordance with his own desire. In an inconspicuous manner, you see hypnosis in practice everywhere - a mother who thinks for, and rules, her son, or any strong character in any walk of life who controls weaklings by his greater knowledge and will.
Practice in the art of multiplying will power will strengthen one in this respect just as practice in exercising certain muscles will make them more powerful than others - or practice in certain arts and skills will give one proficiency over a lesser practiced person.
Many doctors have developed strong hypnotic powers without intending to do so - in fact some have developed these with sufficient intensity to operate upon a patient without giving an anesthetic.
These phenomena have significance in understanding effects of the senses but not of the Mind - for they are not mental.
The whole of these teachings explains the difference between sensing
and knowing. By carefully reviewing the lessons from the beginning, you
will see the golden thread of that thought throughout the entire
series." [Walter Russell, Home Study Course, unit 9, page 708.]
from A Course in Miracles:
"Chapter 27 The Healing of the Dream VIII The Hero of the Dream
1. The body is the central figure in the dreaming of the world. There is no dream without it, nor does it exist without the dream in which it acts as if it were a person to be seen and be believed….
1.4 In the brief time allotted it to live, it seeks for other bodies as its friends and enemies. Its safety is its main concern. Its comfort is its guiding rule. It tries to look for pleasure, and avoid the things that would be hurtful. Above all, it tries to teach itself its pains and joys are different and can be told apart.
2. The dreaming of the world takes many forms, because the body seeks in many ways to prove it is autonomous and real.
2.5 It looks about for special bodies that can share its dream. Sometimes it dreams it is a conqueror of bodies weaker than itself. But in some phases of the dream, it is the slave of bodies that would hurt and torture it.
3. The bodys serial adventures, from the time of birth to dying are the theme of every dream the world has ever had. The hero of this dream itself takes many forms, and seems to show a great variety of places and events wherein its hero finds itself, the dream has but one purpose, taught in many ways. This single lesson does it try to teach again, and still again, and yet once more; that it is cause and not effect. And you are its effect, and cannot be its cause.
4. Thus you are not the dreamer, but the dream. And so you wander idly in and out of places and events that it contrives. That this is all the body does is true, for it is but a figure in a dream….
5. How willing are you to escape the effects of all the dreams the
world has ever had?"
"We do not dream the waking world as we dream during sleep. For the latter is spun out of the individual mind alone, whereas the former is spun out of the cosmic mind and presented to the individual mind. However, ultimately, and on realization, both minds are found to be one and the same, just as a sun ray is found to be the same as the sun ultimately. The difference which exists is fleeting and really illusory but so long as there is bodily experience it is observable. It is correct to note that the present birth-dream is caused by past tendencies; we are hypnotized by the past and our work is to dehypnotize ourselves, that is, to create new thought-habits until the flash comes of itself. But the flash itself comes during a kind of trance state, which may last for a moment or longer. It comes during the higher meditation of supramysticism." Brunton (21-5.92)
