Paphiopedilum spicerianum (Bhutan)
Redemption Dream helps the psyche to address deep layers of guilt or shame, through bringing a shift to our dreams, enabling the mind to either consciously or unconsciously to resolve these issues. Guilt and shame are likely to cause a kind of compression (or suppression) of the heart chakra, particularly by means of blocking the higher heart chakra's ability to cleanse and heal the heart chakra. Through this blocking of the heart's energy, we lose the ability to love unconditionally, and thereby also lose inner peace. In this way one can see how guilt or shame can be major hindrances of our spiritual path. Redemption Dream helps us to remove these hindrances of the heart, specifically through vivifying and re-integrating our dreams at night, to allow ancient and deeply held issues to be aired as it were in the Theatre of the Psyche. In general, most people will benefit from taking Redemption Dream in the days before taking Necklace of Beauty; or at the very least, the exquisite energy of the latter will be more readily accessed and fully felt if Redemption Dream has been worked with first.
