The Code of Aramai - Vol One
The Key to Self Understanding - Sexuality and Romance in Dreams and Creativity
The Code of Aramai is a book that explores the way the symbolism of many dreams reflects human sexuality, and the way such symbolism unconsciously finds its way into art and other creative forms. Freud was a pioneer in this understanding, though greater insight has been developed since his time. This book discusses some of the more common sexual symbols that can be found in dreams and unconscious expression, and discusses the usefulness of understanding and recognising these. Spirituality, creativity, and even one's personal vibrance are all to some extent linked to, and affected by, one's sexuality. One woman, for example, found that all her art was an expression of sex and her sexuality: but she didn’t realise that until she had learnt to recognise the way her art was a type of pictorial, allegorical expression of her inner thoughts. Another young woman dreamt a series of dreams that advised her, and showed how she was approaching her sexuality wrongly, and how she was suppressing her vibrance and nature. It showed her what she should be doing in relation to both her sexuality and life, as well as how she might better handle relationships. It showed the spiritual aspect of her life and how her actions were not helping her spirituality. The dreams also showed her what she unconsciously expected of herself, and how she was letting herself down through her own expectations. In short, her dreams were a window into how she was denying hersef and misunderstanding spirituality. This book outlines some of what we can learn of life through our dreams.
