The Senois: Who are they?
The Senois are a tribe of Malaysia giving crucial importance to the dream world. They practice what can be called the “lucid dream.” In the morning, at lunch, the grownups encourage the little ones to tell their dreams. The adults listen attentively to the children and make suggestions to them in order to optimize this dream creativity:
“What did you dream of last night?” Did you dream that a tiger was chasing you? That’s good … Next time try to turn you around and face him! “
As a result, as adolescents, young Senoi do not have nightmares. The Senois teach us how to improve our lives by dreaming consciously!
Why do they no longer have nightmares?
Because they learn to face their fears and anxieties. They integrate the notion that they are the only masters on board their dreams, so to always face danger. No need for a degree in psychology to understand that this night behavior influences that of day. Neurosis and psychosis are absent in this people, which reminds us, according to the psychiatrist and psychotherapist Perls, of the function of the dream:
“Integrating our personality”.
A method with positive effects!
According to the senoi system, any dream person who does not collaborate in our favor must be considered an enemy. It is even allowed to kill these characters of dreams which are unfavorable to us. The image thus eliminated releases a positive energy which comes from a part of oneself invested in this “antagonist.” In return, the senoi method proposes to ask a gift to our aggressor … whether it be the solution to a problem, a creative idea, a positive outcome to a specific problem, an invention, the right decision to make life.
An erotic dream? What if you chase it to orgasm without feeling guilty?
For the Senois, it’s important to seek pleasure and to take advantage of it. If sexual contact occurs in a dream, continue to orgasm. Even when it is a question of a “forbidden” or “improbable” love, let us go to the end without guilt, since it is a matter of integrating a part of ourselves.
If we dream that we fall on an open air flight, let’s imagine the next time we fly to stop falling. When we succeed in flying, try to reach an inspiring, magical place …
Senois also appeal to their dream allies when there is a threat and that they consider the need for help necessary. Who are these allies? They can come from everyday life (friends, a relative, a dog, a cat,) or directly from the world of dreams.
In short, the senoï method is what?
The senoi system is that of a vesperial cooperative which seeks to integrate our personality by leading it to be stronger in the dream dimension, thus nourishing our creativity and freeing us from any anxiety, frustrations and troubles that could weigh on our daily lives.
