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.

    fear of darkness

    Hi, last night I dreamt I had an illness, it was my fear of darkness. I can't recall everything clearly, or accurately but I think that when I would close my eyes, darkness would invite things, people and events that were not really there but made up only by me. Somehow it wasn't dreaming but my consciousness making up things and scaring me, making me believe they could be true.
    Perhaps part of this illness was fatigue and slurred speech, I am not too sure now.

    I remember being in my home, in my room, with a window in front of me, I remember seeing people outside the window, people full of mystery, perhaps dangerous as well. My father and brother might have been in that room. I remember thinking of my illness, feeling afraid of darkness, fear as overwhelming, yet I woke up slightly intrigued by this dream, yet perhaps not that scared.

    I wish I could remember more, it might have given more clues. What could it mean? My fear of plunging into this uncertainty, this fear becoming an illness, a habit, and male figures surrounding this illness, no feminine qualities. Any ideas would be appreciated,
    thank you,

    Re: fear of darkness

    the darkness in your dream could refer to the shadow aspects of your self,
    ie the things you think you are not,not all these shadow traits are negative though,some can be positive but suppressed because of what the system,religion,or a parents dictates,
    if you are in the dark,
    you are lacking information,uninformed,
    the dream images may contain the very information you need to look at and shed light on,what do the characters in the dream suggest or mean to you?
    by doing this,you will be bringing the issues into consciousness,ie into the light,
    if issues are not addressed,they can manifest on the outside by projecting your fears and anxieties onto others,so would be similar to an illness,cause and effect,
    what do you feel is the cause of the dream?
    i hope this starts the ball rolling for you,
    regards steve

    Re: fear of darkness

    Thanks Steve,

    if only i could see the images/dreams when I closed my eyes, but i was so afraid to close my eyes that i don't recall much, strange enough when I am writing this it almost sounds like being afraid to dream, afraid to see beyond. I mean in my waking life I take my dreams seriously perhaps too seriously, I enjoy dreaming and trying to decipher what it means, yet in this dream, darkness or dreaming means something else?

    What do I think brought about this dream? Well actually it's so literal but say bringing about tears, or feeling emotions overwhelming me at a particular moment in time, I see that as an illness, well it can lead into an illness if I am not strong enough. That's what happens often in my waking life, and perhaps my lack of confidence can lead into unhealthy relationships with others. Well it has a few times already, and I am afraid of that to repeat again and again.

    Anyway, lately in my waking life, I am preparing to going back to uni after a holiday break, it will be my final year, a sixth year of my long course in architecture. And lately, I have been really interested in images, in collecting images from articles, anything that interests me, fascinates me, colours, interesting layouts, things that can also help me in my year at uni, when designing or finalising my projects. Things that can bring an idea.
    So in that sense an image, is a positive thing.
    In the dream, the image, imagining or dreaming was scary. I don't know, i find these parallels interesting, thanks for your help,
