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.

    the light

    I had a dream about 2 months ago that I don't understand, my parents say it was a spirtaull dream,so what do you think:
    all of a sudden I'm walking into a bright area I look around and see trees, bushes and flowers, every time I touch one of these a flower blooms and butterflies are flying all around , I feel total piece and happiness in this place , and then a voice says go back you've got as close to god as you are going to get, and I try to refuse to go and the voice gets louder and then I wake up with my cat slapping me in the face.
    Well thats my dream, what do you think

    Re: the light

    It could be a spiritual dream and it could also symbolize something in your personal waking life. It may also be addressing both aspects at the same time, the spiritual and recent waking, personal experiences.

    There are few symbols that should be taken literally in a dream but god {you used lower case letters which may be relevant} can be one of them. But 'he' can also represent a higher 'inner' source, or higher masculine aspect {wisdom, strength, fortitude, perseverance, etc.}. Those masculine aspects, if applicable, may suggest they need to be utilized more often or need to be developed. For more about masculine aspects of a woman read Anima/Animus

    What gives it the possibility of being a spiritual dream is not only the mention of god but also the flower, the bushes and butterflies. These often represent the beauty of nature which in many mythologies are in reference to the spiritual 'Mother Nature'. God is masculine, nature is feminine and combined they represent balance. At 42, and being well within the years of mid-life, you may seeking answers to such questions about the 'meaning of life' or you are searching for spiritual balance and harmony in your life. If that is the case then that could be where the dream is addressing the spiritual aspect.

    My sense is the dream is addressing something personal, most likely some emotional experience where you were in a place you felt comfortable with, a place where you had room to 'blossom' and grow. 'You felt total peace and happiness in this place'.

    But there seems to be something that prevents you from remaining in this place. That would most likley be a masculine aspect as mentioned above {wisdom, strength, fortitude, perseverance, etc.}. Perhaps your personality lacks one or more of these masculine qualities. Without them you may not possess the will or strength or perserverence to remain in that where you feel total peace and happiness.
    Another possibility, and a reasonable one, is there may be an actual man in your life who controls {god} your ability to be in a place if peace and happiness. This person may be holding you back.

    One important thing to do is to look back two months ago, when you had the dream, and see in what place you were at that time. Look to see what may have been in your way also. The voice may be your own unconscious speaking to you, but it could also be a person. Compare the possibilities I have presented to your actual waking life {especially your emotional life}.
