When we dream we somehow link words to our dreams in our reality of wakefulness or when we are fully conscious (reality). It is something that happens over 95 percent of the time that our unconscious or subconscious mind, memorize and it is etched into our mind-brain.
In times of desperation and stress we extend and link our emotions into the word associated dreamscape and do unconsciously without thinking. It is a mechanism associated with repressed memories and we suppress these emotions into our memories also.
Carl Jung describes a way he developed a way to tap into an electric dreamscape with the use of words and self-training. At the time, it may not have been called lucid dreaming but it is one of the ways to tap into the unconscious mind or electric dreamscape. Carl Jung conducted experiments that were enabling him to tap into his subconscious or unconscious mind-brain by using a calming and self-training to calm himself with setting a tone into pushing the dreamscape into his unconscious mind. Carl Jung was close to the time of sleeping and imagined himself in a steep descent and he was attempting to get to the bottom; when he reached the depth he found himself in a cosmic abyss. (p.221-222) It was an atmosphere of another world in the lucid dream he (Carl Jung) met with other people in the dream and associated them with symbolism or religious figures he had learned about in his life.
After this experiment Carl Jung began to tap into the depth of his psyche and find reasonable explanations or interpretations to his dreamscapes. This association with words, symbolism, and religion took on a shape in his minds-eye and it was put on paper, what resulted was a mandala and a dream interpretation of what transpired in his dreams. A form of expression developed and the first mandala was created by Carl Jung and introduced to the New World. (Concerning mandala’s, Carl Jung) & (http://carl-jung.net/mandala.html) it is a form of practice or mental absorption that organizes the inner energies and forces the practitioner to form or develop a meaning and puts them into a relationship with his ego or psyche.
So what is a mandala Carl Jung describes it as a representation of self with a graphical significance and can appear in dreams or visions spontaneously and is created by the practitioner as a work of Art? This symbolism can also appear in the form of music and we touched on this subject in my writings. (http://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/Generational-Electric-Dreamscape) or short cut (http://hub.me/ak2qK).
Wikipedia describes the mandala as a spiritual and ritual symbol in Indian religions, representing the universe. It also has a generic term for any diagram, chart, or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandala)
It can also be associated with a generational link in the electric dreamscape of anyone collectively or individually because it was learned or seen in the lifetime of the individual or practitioner of the one who develops and creates this work of Art. Many generations of different cultures have used mandalas as part of their religious symbolism or philosophies for example the Tibetan and Buddhist’s. It is also used to induce a spiritual trance when a practitioner focuses on the mandala as a center point; this was one of the experiments that Carl Jung used on himself to induce a Lucid Electric Dreamscape. This type of action or experience is also described in Wikipedia as the basic form of the mandala and its creation. Today mandalas are used in healing and in focusing attention to the inner self. The spiritual quadrants are what Carl Jung described in the circle, the four elements (wind, fire, water, earth) the four winds (north, south, east, west) and the four corners of the mandala. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJUu-xiJPx8&list=PLyoJf5H8h_ndvvzOYM4aFCKOvAqtJbAQL) & (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8N9UR6OTCs) It is used in meditation.
With this type of meditation your body goes into a Lucid Dreamscape or Spiritual trance and it could be stored into your memory and recalled by word association. Remember in a Lucid Dreamscape we have both capabilities of the unconscious and conscious mind-brain and we are aware of what is happening in our electric dreamscape and can wake ourselves up; if need be.
Sometimes stored memories could be part of our emotional scheme when we act out of desperation, stress, or our repression of memories, suppression of memories, and because we had a brain injury. Sometimes even if it is not part of our reality we sometimes find a way of inventing a dreamscape and memory that is not something we learned, it is part of a fantasy or part of an invented memory (parapsychological emotional nature).
So just what is parapsychological emotional nature? Wikipedia describes it as a pseudoscience concerned with the investigational of the paranormal and psychic phenomena which includes telepathy, precognition, extrasensory perception, clairvoyance, psychokinesis, near-death experiences, reincarnation, apparitional experiences and other paranormal claims. All of the above claimed parapsychological activities are not explained and not exactly known physically or biologically as a bodily mechanism in the electric dreamscape and in a reality. Some of these mechanisms are experienced on a spiritual level for example: Shamans, Indian Medicine Men/Woman, and Buddhists practice some of the above mechanisms or is accepted in the mainstream of their lives. Not only are these experiences privy to shamans but it could be experienced by the “normal Joe.” Many artists musicians and artist who draw and paint can attribute their Artist abilities to the Electric Dreamscape. Those that are very in tune with their psyche or soul have an added sense of precognition or perception that the everyday lay person like the “normal Joe” might not have.
