Visions, Hallucinations, and Dreams in the Context of Body Wisdom and Chaos Theory

Kenneth C. Bausch


Our bodies before language are one with our mothers and the universe. With language, we build our conscious individuality while still retaining our embodied unity with the universe and unconscious access to its unspoken mysteries. With language, we build our individuality as we struggle to make explicit those mysteries as they pertain to us. Dreams, hallucinations, and visions are some of the ways that our bodies move unconscious knowledge into our conscious (languaged) reality. This effort takes place in what is called the imaginal realm. In this realm, we may be talking to ourselves as we try to figure out what is going on. We may have imaginal companions, write fiction, dream, pray, engage in fantasy, and play. They imaginal realm is the workshop where our egos tap our unconscious body wisdom and construct the narratives that become our lives.
