I had never heard of the 'oceanic feeling' before I read this book, but I knew, when I read it, exactly what it meant. The fact that this feeling is reported in a book that is essentially about sex, made a lightbulb turn on in my head – no wonder I had never come across it before, my vagina is the last place I would have looked for it. Naomi describes the oceanic feeling thus:

“[the woman] is in a state of a kind of perfection, in harmony with and in connection with the world……in that state of consciousness, the inner voices that say the woman is not good enough, not beautiful enough, not pleasing enough to others are stilled…..and the sense of….a universal or divine feminine can… Read more

I read this book three years ago and I must say I did not understand one word of it. I then 'tried' to give it away, but never was able to get shot of it.

I have been on an intense 'spiritual' path since I first read it (with the likes of Eckharte Tolle and Adyashanti), so when I recently 'found' it on my bookshelf again, I thought I would give it another try. This time I 'understood' every word of "Awakening to the Dream", if it is at all possible for the mind to understand such writing. It may be more accurate to say that I understood how every word may lead me deeper into the Self.

So yes, in my experience, this book is totally succinct, totally laid bare, totally… Read more
