Dr. Jim Kwako is interested in dreams that are “not dreams in the usual sense,” he said.
People commonly have dreams in which they talk to dead loved ones, or seem to presage some events in their lives, or have some other experience that has a profound effect on them mentally and emotionally. Some people Kwako knows have even used them to find the answers to complex math problems and other worldly and practical problems.
Kwako is a family physician in Santa Barbara, Calif., a past medical director for Cottage Hospital’s Shealy Pain and Stress Rehabilitation Center, and annual meeting chair for the American Holistic Medical Association. He has had his own “night-time experience” as he calls it.
He awoke with the words “help Rose” in his mind. Rose is his sister’s name. He later discovered that the same night, Rose had been going through a terrifying and traumatic experience. He had another dream with a more spiritual significance.
He dreamed that he joined a group in prayer. One of the people said: “May the light from the center of all that is good shine to us and through us.”
“That’s great, that helped me,” Kwako said. He said the experience was real and he is certain it wasn’t his subconscious or something created in his own mind. He shared these experiences and talked about a few benefits these experiences can have, as part of a discussion at the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS) 2014 Conference in Newport Beach, Calif., on Aug. 29.
