Warning Dreams of Cancer and Dream Interpretation
Dr. Larry Burk
February 4, 2016
Modern medicine emphasizes high tech diagnostic methods such as MRI and laboratory tests with little credence given to intuitive approaches for the acquisition of knowledge about disease. However, dreams have provided useful information in medical diagnosis for centuries from ancient shamanic traditions to the healing temples of Asclepius. Shamans would dream intentionally for ailing tribal members as well as interpret dreams that occurred during a healing crisis. Pilgrims to Asclepiad would incubate dreams overnight in the temples of Asclepius, the Greek God of Medicine, and report them to a priest the next day.
Recent anecdotal reports of women dreaming their breast cancers led to a survey of 18 women from around the world published in the 2015 May/June issue of Explore: The Journal of Science and Healing, “Warning Dreams Preceding the Diagnosis of Breast Cancer: A Survey of the Most Important Characteristics. These vivid, extraordinary dreams were described as life changing experiences and characterized by a sense of conviction about their importance. In more than half of the cases, the dreams prompted medical attention, were shared with consulting doctors, provided the location of the tumors, and led directly to diagnosis.
Some of the breast cancer dreamers also reported using their dreams for healing during their therapy. As a follow-up to this groundbreaking study, additional reports of warning dreams for other types of cancers are being collected for a new book on the subject. Thus far, these dreams include warnings about thyroid, prostate, skin, brain, lung, uterine, colon, and kidney cancers. Hopefully this research will lead to a return of dreams to a position of importance in the holistic medicine of the future. The goal is to inspire everyone to adopt the time-honored habit of keeping a dream diary with the modern option of doing it on a smart phone.
Second Half of Presentation will be an Interactive Discussion and Interpretation of Health-Related Dreams
If you are interested in having your “health-related” dream considered for review and interpretation by Dr. Burk during the second portion of his presentation, email your name and the details of your dream to email@example.com.
The deadline to send in dream details is Wednesday, February 3.
In the event there is time left after the interpretations, attendees will be asked if they would like to share a health-related dream for interpretation.
A multi-dimensional approach to interpretation will be used as described by Marc Ian Barasch in his book Healing Dreams: Exploring the Dreams that Can Transform Your Life.
Dream impressions will be presented following the Montague Ullman tradition used by the International Association for the Study of Dreams beginning with the phrase: “If this were my dream …”
