Ce qu’est le rêve…

Chaque homme rêve…

…et beaucoup se demandent ce que signifient ces aventures et ces images nocturnes, cette autre vie qui semble être un monde parallèle à notre quotidien.

Les rêves sont-ils un miroir du soi ou juste un feu d’artifice de neurones dépourvu de toute raison ? Sont-ils simplement des marées d’images se formant sans lien logique, dépourvus de sens – ou bien sont-ils des clés ouvrant les portes vers les réponses à des questions restées en suspens, ou vers des processus créatifs nous permettant de résoudre des problèmes ?

Dort-on pour rêver ? Rêve-t-on pour dormir ?

Le rêve est-il une “digestion mentale” ou nous permet-il de parcourir des mondes étranges, de voyager vers le futur ou d’établir un contact télépathique avec le monde ? Le rêve aide-t-il à survivre au quotidien ? Le rêve en tant que souvenir conscient d’une histoire ou d’images pourvues de sens ne prend-il forme qu’après le réveil, en se créant à partir de sensations et d’images diffuses ? Le rêve est-il une hallucination, un moyen d’échapper au quotidien ou un guide pour notre âme ?

Un rêve est un type de pensée qui apparait habituellement pendant le sommeil et qui présente des caractéristiques données. La spécificité de ces caractéristiques dépend avant tout de la phase de sommeil durant laquelle ce processus de pensée a lieu.
Le rêve et la réalité à l’état éveillé sont phénoménologiquement semblables, dans les deux cas, les cinq sens sont présents. Ces deux états diffèrent cependant l’un de l’autre puisque le corps du rêveur se trouve dans un état de profonde relaxation (sommeil) qui fait partie de sa réalité transphénoménale (Paul Tholey).

..le rêve est un rêve est un rêve…

Le rêve est un genre de monde parallèle dans lequel nos réalités se reflètent, s’illustrent et communiquent.

DreamSenseMemory (© B. Holzinger 2016)

Dreams are our nightly adventures in an otherworld, which already fascinated humankind in the antiquity, inspired to understand dreams as visions about the future, as messages from the Gods or, as in the Asklepios cult, as a cure. The fascination for dreams is still within us and since Sigmund Freud it is understood as messages from the unconscious. 1953 REM-sleep has been discovered and has been understood as the process of dreams. This discovery creates an opening for dreams to be understood scientifically. Though we are not agreeing nowadays if only REM sleep is accompanied by dreams, dream research has established itself, not least by the possibility to study the consciousness in the dream, the lucid dream.

We know nowadays, that dreams are connected to process the senses as well as the emotions. It can be stated that during REM-sleep important sequences of learning take place, above all those concerning our mental state and our performance, like temper, memory and concentration.

We even go that far as to say that during dreams we integrate what we kept in mind from our days into our experience.

It has now become unthinkable to eliminate dream work from any psychological school: it inspires us, gets our attention, but mostly dreams are not interpreted anymore. Based on those insights and on our research, among others the ones about lucid dreams and on the possibility they provide to overcome nightmares, Brigitte Holzinger has developed an easy way for dream work, which on the one hand is based on Gestalt-therapy and on the other hand is using method acting (first mentioned by Lee Strasberg and addressing actors) to access to dreams. To be able to authentically play their roles, actors have to fully embrace the fictive world in which the fictive character they endorse exists. Actors using this method to feel this fictive world with all their senses, they dive into it with the experiences they made themselves, transferring those upon the fictive character as if it would truly exist and be able to have real senses on its own. In the Dream Sense Memory approach, a dream will be worked upon (in group setting or in personal consultation) by being recounted according to this method. It is about embracing a dream with all senses, so that every aspect of it can be uncovered. Only by using also the memory of the senses can the remembrance on the dreamed events be fully recovered and thus, the potential messages of the dream pictures be “sensed” and felt, not interpreted.

Dream Sense Memory is focused on emotions and feelings of the dreamer, experienced through following the sensual memory. The plot and content of a dream come back alive and real as ever, it can physically be felt and experienced and therefore be captured further by the dreamer. Further, for treating sleep disorders, we have developed a non-medication- based method which we call sleepcoaching. Dream work and DreamSenseMemory ® are integral Elements of sleepcoaching. Sleepcoaching can be learned at the Medical University of Vienna (www.meduniwien.ac.at/zk-schlafcoaching) and more information about this method can be found on our website and in our publicized books.
