“For the Kukatja and neighboring groups, a dream occurs when, while a person is asleep, his or her kurunnpa (what we would usually translate as one’s spirit), which is related to the abdominal (or umbilical) area (tjurni), leaves the body to pursue carious experiences and encounters and is thus liable to acquire knowledge. The krunnpa (spirit) relates to cognition, volution, and to the expression of emotions.”
A “good dreamer” is “open”—either their ears or tjurni are open. The ears are “seen as the organ of thought […], that is, the mind, which stands in relation to whatever is acquired through listening to other people or stories.” If you can open these areas, you will become a “knowledgeable person”
Sylvie Poirier, “”This is a good country. We are good dreamers” chapter within “Dream Travelers” p.111-112
How beautiful to approach reality from this perspective! Opening your ears and your spirit is opening your mind. It is through listening and feeling that we learn.
