Read the following. Posted Dreams follows.

Dreams are a succession of images, actions and sensations that occur involuntarily in the mind primarily during the REM stage of sleep. Dreams are unbiased, spontaneous products of the unconscious, outside the control of conscious will. The act of dreaming is physical but the contents of dreams is psychological. They are NATURAL expressions of the dreamer's emotional/personal life illustrating experiences that possess strong emotional energies. Although there are literal applications in dreams the primarily language is symbolic, metaphorical of the dreamer's emotional energies.
  • 1. Dreams are about the emotions, emotional energies of the person who is dreaming. They offer advice and a deeper understanding of our waking life as well as the foundations for the emotional energies of the dreamer.

  • 2. The language of dreams is symbolic, but also with literal applications {literal waking experinces}. The symbolic images and actions are metaphors for the patterns or motifs for the dreamer's emotional/psychological/physical life. Every character in a dream is a different aspect of an unacknowledged aspect of the dreamer and/or a prevalent situation in the person's life involving actual persons/experiences {dreams will address both aspects}.

  • 3. The purpose and function of dreams is to guide the conscious self to achieve wholeness and offer a solution to the problems in waking life. Solutions to problems and conflicts from everyday life, as well as the deeper underlying issues, 'emotional injuries' that stem from the foundations of the dreamer {early life experiences and trama experiences in life}.
    ---Dreams reveal vital information that expose the authentic emotions and feelings that are often concealed from the conscious mind.
    ---Dreams compensate for conscious attitudes and personality traits that are out of balance.

  • 4. Dreams are intentional. Nature provides us with dreams to understand and help heal emotional conflicts/issues. Just as the body has the immune system to heal and protect, the psych{ology} has the dream.

  • 5. Dreams possess 'Archteypal' representations. Archetypes are universal, original patterns and images that derive from the collective unconscious and are the psychic counterpart of instinct. An archetype is an inherited tendency of the human mind to form representations of mythological motifs-representations of the symbolic images/actions without losing their basic emotional pattern. Dreams and mythology share the same archetypal images, myths as illustrations of the universal patterns and dreams as illustrations of personal patterns.

  • 6. All dreams have at least two meanings or applications. One is the symbolic representation metaphorical of the emotional energies and the second being a literal application where a person, place or experience is addressing a real life experience.

    Death of My dog

    In this Dream I am watching my dog get put to sleep. What's really weird is that I am holdong him and the lower half of his body is wrapped in plastic wrap and you can tell he is in pain , but the veterinarian does not want to do anything, she is telling me that it is not his time, and I feel strongly that it is, because he has tumors throughout his body, and they have infiltrated his major organs. As I was holding him, ( I finally got the vet to agree that he needs to be put to rest) against my shoulder he said I love you mama! I started crying and I felt it in my chest, because I was trying to hold back as much of the emotion as I could. Then they injected him, but instead of it going peacefully his rolled to the back of his head and he started having a seizure, it was a very painful passing. I woke up with my chest hurting and crying from this dream. In reality my dog was put to sleep because he had large tumors in his kidneys and liver, Unfortunately I was not there to see his passing, and I guess I feel guilty.

    Re: Death of My dog

    Most likely your dream is addressing the deep affection you had for your dog and perhaps the guilt of not being there. It may also be addressing something deeper within yourself. Some of the details of the dream may be primarily related to your dogs actual affliction {as perceived} and may not have any real meaning other than that. If there is a deeper meaning to the dream I would look at the statement "I love you mama!". I noticed the exclamation mark at the end of that sentence. Most often such unconscious notes within a dream point to actual waking life emotions. There may be some elements of your relationship with your real mother that the dream is addressing. Is she still living. Examine that relationship and see if any of the dream fits with it. You may have to look beyond the mere words {for instance, what could the word veterinarian be a metaphor for?}. If you don't see any relationships then the dream should be taken at face value {guilt and pain}. At least as the primary reason for the dream.
