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 and serious injuries to family pets

    Last year I dreamt that my cat came walking into the house with a broken leg, it was the rear left leg. I woke up immediately after the cat entered the house. Later that evening my boyfriend told me that he had a horrible dream about her also. It was very similar to mine but went farther. He dreamt that the cat came into the house with a rear right broken leg and we rushed her to the vet, there we had to make the decision to either put her to sleep or have the vet equip her with a rolling walker that we would atach to her rear. He was unable to make the decision and asked me to do it but he woke up before I decided. Shortly after these dreams the cat ran out the door-that was normal for her, she loved to be out hunting-and we never saw her again, she had never stayed gone longer than a few hours, mostly she stayed in our yard. A friend thinks she has spotted her up by her house but they can not catch her, she wouldnt come to anyone but me or my bf anyways and I have not seen her when I go look. Awhile ago I had another dream where she came home but her hair was all messed up, almost looked as though she had been run over but she was still whole. In this dream she was able to speak and told me that she was ok and that I didnt need to worry. A month after we lost the cat we adopted a puppy. My boyfriend had a dream that the puppy was in his pickup and we were at a party. The police came and an officer opened the door to the pickup and shot the dog for no apparent reason. Right now my bf is in Texas and me and our dog are joining him in april. the other night he had another dream that we were there and the dog was in the river by where he is staying and alligators were chasing him. One got him and a couple of guys and I jumped in to rescue our dog and he got free and started swimming toward my bf. He could vividly see the trail of blood from the dog in the water. Thankfully though there are no alligators really in this river. After the dreams about our cat it makes me nervous. I have not had a similar dream though so far about the dog. We are just curious as to what these dreams could mean. I think the good parts are that my bf trusts me to make the decision about the cat, and that he sees me as trying to rescue the dog. I do fear losing our dog and believe my bf does too. He is like a child to us. But I did not fear losing the cat. It could have something to do with the fact that the reason we had the her was because both of my boyfriends parents had passed away, otherwise we have no desire to have a cat. She was special. People offered to take her but he turned them all down and got very upset about it.

    Re: Death and serious injuries to family pets

    Your boyfriend's dream is probably related to his relationship with you, you being the cat {female}. The decision to made in the dream probably relates to some decision in his waking life. The broken leg may represent some aspect of the relationship that may seem 'broken'. And since you had a similar dream it may be a feeling you both share. The decision as what to do may be left up to you {compare this to your real waking life}.

    Look at the cat in your dream as being you. In his dream it may also symbolize some of his feminine aspects but it would also represent you in the relationship. And although the dream may offer sentiments about real animals in your life, it would also be addressing the relationship between you and your boyfriend.

    Let me know your thoughts. Any info about the relationship and decisions to be made there will be helpful.
