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 murderous mother

    Hello everyone,

    Since everyone here has always been so very helpful and your comments so very insightful, I come to you once more with a troublesome dream...

    I am working as a Medical Interpreter in a hospital. I am called to go to a room, but for some reason, I go in alone, instead of accompanied by a provider as is the custom. It is an hispanic family on the postpartum floor. I walk in. Everyone is sleeping. Then I see the baby in the car seat or in the crib and there is plastic or tape over the baby´s mouth and the baby is writhing as it struggles to breathe. I am horrified, panicked. I run over to the baby and take the plastic or tape from her mouth. (I think it is a girl). The mother is in the bed, I believe, but either when she sees me trying to help her baby she leaves, or she leaves after I run with the baby out of the room trying to get help for her - a doctor or rn to check her out. I believe the husband is still in the room sleeping, but I'm not sure. I remember the woman walking down the hall, leaving her baby.

    I am really affected by this and I leave the room, like I said, to find help for the baby. Somebody checks her and she is fine, but I tell no one about the plastic and that I know the mother put it there. I am confused and don´t know what to do. I can´t bring myself to speak of the situation to anyone, it was so traumatic. I begin to cry every time I think about or mention the baby but I feel that someone should know so that the mother can be apprehended.

    I look in a room full of doctors sitting at tables or desks in a conference room and try to find one that I know and trust, someone with whom I can talk about this emotional situation, but I cannot find anyone. Then I search among the nurses. They are having a class and I ask if I can speak to the one on the end of the row toward the back door. She is a really nice rn I know in passing. She says sure, but something happens. I think that an rn from post-partum actually interrupts and asks me if this is about the family in 223 who was having problems with immigration. It is the same room #, but I don't feel comfortable talking with her about it. "I really don´t remember the room number," I tell her, "because I was so upset" But in my mind I believe it is the same room and I begin to wonder what possessed the mother to attempt to murder her child and if this had something to do with it.

    I also become worried that I did the wrong thing by not telling someone earlier; I had given the mother much too much time to get away. Meanwhile, no one knew, not even the father, that she had tried to murder her own baby. I wake up before I can find someone I trust.

    notes: I actually am a medical interpreter, I do not have children. If there's any other personal information that would be helpful, just let me know...

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Re: the murderous mother

    It would be great if you could give more personal information and also any impressions about the dream you may have. Being a long dream and seemingly confronting more than one issue, knowing more about you and your impressions of the dream would be most helpful. It does seem that part of the dream is job related but there are probably deeper aspects to the dream that you need to understand.

    One thing to remember about your dreams. They are about you. Most of teh people and actions are either aspects of yourelf or experiences with other people that affect you. For instance:

    I remember the woman walking down the hall, leaving her baby

    Although there may have been real experiences that fit this scence, it is actually addressing your life and emotions. The woman would be you, hallways often represent connections between conscious and unconscious aspects, connections betwen head {thinking} and heart {caring}. The baby could symbolize something you hold dear in your life {job, career, something you truly care about}

    The dream does state this is 'an emotional situation'. Look at your life, and particularly your job, to determine what emotional situtaions may fit with this dream. The dream can be addressing actual life experiences and at the same time addressing your own inner emotional issues. The intent would be to highlite those aspects about yourself that lend tyhemselves to the emotional self, inner aspects probably more so than external ones.
