Also known as Dream temples were places where ancient Egyptians practiced hypnosis and as I suggest Lucid dreaming and maybe astral travels as well and those Dream temples were influenced by high priest in Heliopolis Imhotep. Dreamlords in Dreamtemples used to chant magic texts and put thei r patients under hypnosis. Final result was that patient would then report dreams to priests which would then dertminated cure for patients. Whats interesting that those priests used to meditate. Dreamlords would also give warnings, advice, and prophecies based on their dreams.
I also asked one great amateur (?) Egyptologist who confirm what I found. That ancient Egyptians called dream „rswt“ and one of hieroglyphs of it was open eye. I on Internet found that „rswt“ etymology was „to be awake.“ While person who confirm above said that: it's very close in hieroglyphic spelling to the word for "wake," "watchful," and "vigilant."
The Dream Book-from Deir el-Medina, Egypt-19th Dynasty, around 1275 BC
Papyrus giving a list of dreams and their interpretations.
Each horizontal line describes a dream, followed by the diagnosis 'good' or 'bad', and then the interpretation. For example, 'if a man sees himself in a dream looking out of a window, good; it means the hearing of his cry'. Or, 'if a man sees himself in a dream with his bed catching fire, bad; it means driving away his wife'
Asclepeion in ancient Greece and Rome was temple of healing dedicated to god Asclepius. God dates to 5th century BC. People were there spent night sleeping. Then they would tell their stories to the master of the dreams. And whats interesting is that non venom snakes were used in rite because snakes were sacred to Asclepius. What is even more interesting is that Hippocrates "father of medicine", learnt his knowledge in medicine on island Kos in Asclepeion. Symbol of health care of today is rod of Asclepius. Snake entwited around rod. In the end God Asclepius was killed because he reaised dead.
I realy cant see how one can ignore this . We have „Open eye“ heiroglyphs, Dream temples, dream=watchfull, dream books, prophecies and meditation. And Imhotep.
