"So much of the harm we
inflict on ourselves and others stems from the fact that we do not
remember who we are. How do we embark on the journey of soul
remembering? By working with spontaneous dreams, which are the
language of soul. By learning to operate in the twilight zone,
where our 'double in heaven' can communicate with us clearly.
By rising on the planes to commune with a master teacher on a higher
level. By traveling backward through the scenes of our present
life journey, back through the womb itself, to discover where we
were and what we knew before we took on physical bodies."
DREAMGATES: Becoming a Citizen of the Multiverse
The time is always Now, except when the time is GO.
The first edition of Dreamgates was published in 1998, but I suspect that the time for it, emphatically, is Now. More and more people, in all walks of life, are looking for the bigger story of their lives and for ways to gain direct access to the hidden logic of events and the deeper reality behind the ups and downs of everyday existence. Humans need food and air and water and sex but (as Victor Frankl taught us, indelibly) they also need meaning.
When I was a young boy in Australia, challenged by life-threatening illness, I was advised by a dream visitor who appeared as a radiant young man from the ancient Hellenic world that all true knowledge is anamnesis. I discovered that this difficult term means “remembering” in a special sense: remembering the knowledge that belonged to us, on the level of soul and spirit, before we came into this world.
Dreamgates encourages you to remember and live the deeper story of your life. You’ll find strength there to weather the roughest days. You’ll find a profound source of self-healing, because the body, no less than the soul, believes in story, and will move in the direction of wellness if we choose the right stories.
In these pages, you’ll find confirmation of things you may have sensed, or glimpsed in half-forgotten dreams or in the path of moonlight on water:
- You are here in this world on a mission
- You had a life before you were conceived, and you’ll have a life after death.
- You belong to a spiritual, as well as a biological family. You have counterparts in other times and in alternate realities, aspects of your larger, multidimensional self
- Dreaming is traveling.
- The events and situations you encounter in physical reality have their genesis in a deeper order of reality that indigenous peoples call the Dreamtime, and you can learn to go there consciously.
- You can visit the Other Side, have timely and helpful communication with the departed in their current living environments – and make Death your ally instead of your fear.
- You are never confined to the body, or the laws of Newtonian physics, except through a failure of imagination.
- Coincidence is when the universe gets personal, and navigating by synchronicity is the dreamer’s way of traveling the roads of everyday life
In this book you’ll learn practical techniques to bring energy, guidance and healing from a deeper reality into everyday life. You’ll discover how to project consciousness safely beyond the body, how to open gates between the worlds – and how to close them when necessary. You’ll learn how to travel, wide awake and dreaming, to true cities of the imagination, and other places of instruction, adventure and healing in nonordinary reality, and how to read the signs of everyday life as a set of dream symbols. You’ll be invited to meet your counterparts in other realities, and rise to the knowledge of the Higher Self at the hub of the many aspects of your multidimensional self. In short, Dreamgates is an invitation to become a full citizen of the multidimensional universe.
PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION of DREAMGATES from Publishers Weekly:
"Insisting that we are each born with the ability to experience different ways of seeing and knowing, Moss (Conscious Dreaming) invites readers through the portals of "the twilight zone. The cusp between waking and sleeping, and between sleeping and waking." Beyond this entrance to the dreamworld, according to Moss, dreamers encounter spirit guides, experience physical and emotional healings, see and create their own futures and are given answers to specific questions. Likening these trips to flying, the author eschews the "consensual hallucination" that the physical world is real and the dreamworld is not. Travel in "dreambodies," he contends, is quite real and is an important part of everyone's total life experience, whether or not it is remembered in conscious states. Moss rejects traditional dream analysis, and offers an unusual alternate explanation for "alien abduction" stories: that they are actually dream experiences of encounters with spirit beings. Teaching his method of "active dreaming," he provides many provocative individual and group exercises, including breathing, drumming and a variety of visualization techniques. According to Moss, the ultimate purpose of reconnecting dreaming and conscious states is "soul remembering": the revelation of where we came from before birth and where we will go after death, illuminating whatever lies in between with new meaning."
