Reading the great cycle of Welsh epics known as the Mabinogion with the eye of a dreamer, we can discern an ancient account from the British Isles of the technique I call dream reentry – going back inside a dream in a conscious journey.
What follows is a simple retelling of the central part of a wonder story from the Mabinogion called "The Dream of Macsen Wledig". King Macsen is the Emperor of Rome, and the dream woman who becomes his queen is Elen of Britain, perhaps even the goddess known as Elen of the Ways.
The King Who Dreams, and Reenters His Dream
A great king is out hunting with his men when he is overcome by the sudden urge to nap, under the heat of the sun. His men make a tent for him with their shields, set up on spears, on the slope beside the river, and once the king is away, floating rather than riding towards a mountain upstream that seems to touch the sky.
mountain, he comes to a great plain, and beyond this a great harbor
where he crosses a bridge made of ivory to board a ship that speeds
him to a beautiful island in a Western sea. He surveys the whole
land, and enters a castle where he finds two handsome young men
playing a board game that is something like chess but has different
moves and much greater stakes. Beyond them, a white-haired man with
the air of majesty is enthroned in a chair with two eagles,
fashioning new pieces for the game.
Dreaming is not fundamentally about what happens during sleep. It is about waking up to a deeper reality. One of the best places to do this is in the liminal space between sleep and awake.
author’s grace and fluidity as a writer makes it a delight to read.
I particularly enjoyed his neologisms, such as kairomancer,
describing one who is attuned to the whisperings of possibility
within the synchronicities and prepared to take action to manifest
them in one’s reality. The great gift of this book is that it
encourages us to jump joyfully with both feet into the puddle of
life and make the biggest splash that we are able. In fact, playing
any or all of the games suggested by the author just might convince
you that the world is indeed full of magic.”
Synchronicity is when the universe gets personal. Through this book of games and enchanting stories, you’ll learn how to monitor the play of coincidence and the symbolic resonance of incidents in daily life in order to tap into the deeper logic of events, receive extraordinary counsel, and have wonderful fun.
