Records – paper or filmed.

Usually memory or information you may have forgotten or not accessed before. See: CD

Any video or film, even if the characters or theme seem strange, is nearly always a depiction of some aspect of you. Some drives or areas of self act or express despite what we would want. These are named autonomous complexes. Recent research into brain activity shows that in fact the brain has different layers or strata of activity. These strata often act independently of each other or of conscious will. Sensing them, as one might in a dream, might feel like meeting an opposing will or being possessed by an alien force. Integration with these aspects of self can of course be gained. See Animals in your Brain

You are yourself an amazing recording apparatus. You have taken in millions of bit of memory, lessons learnt, life experiences, along with all the feelings or problems met while living with or loving someone, and they are what make you the person you are – they are YOUR memories. Your dreams tend to put these memories  into the image of the past person when you are dealing with the influences/recordings left in your from the relationship. See this wonderful example.

But if you are not honouring what you have taken into you, it might be giving you indigestion of the soul. What I have found over years of investigation is that everything we take in, experience as well as food, needs to be dealt with in a particular way. We are a living process like all living things. We have to transform what we take in into living processes. For instance when a plant takes in water and nourishment it changes it into living cells the same with us if we are healthy, we change food into our living body and awareness. As I wrote years ago, “We often take for granted some of the most astounding facts about our everyday life. They seem so normal we barely notice them. But just think, the potatoes or rice you ate yesterday is today capable of sitting and laughing at a television program. When you digested the food you ate, in some way that is truly astounding, it transformed into your movements, and feelings, and being able to do maths and enjoy a video”. (Quoted from SuperMinds).

How we do that with our experience, well we have to digest it fully by experiencing it fully. If we do not do that it is like plastering stuff/experience on ourselves that is like thick coating which leads to all sorts of mental disorders. Look around you and see the massive crap many people are carrying. Experiencing it fully is a life process like digesting our food. We cannot do it ourselves (we do not consciously digest our food) because Life in us does it. You help it by imagine taking an image if a person in your dream, or the recording or instrument into you. Literally imagine that you are going to take them into your body and you are accepting them – not as outside people, but as the experience you took into you. Then you must allow any feeling to surface fully – that is how we digest experience. In our culture we have been taught to repress everything, that is why we have so much social sickness.

Useful Questions and Hints:

What have I sought access to in this dream?

Were there words, information or music in the dream?

Have I in any way digested the mass of experience recorded in me?

Are my memories simple lifeless ideas I have, or have they become living parts of me?
