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.

    Re: lock of hair

    Thank you Jerry for your response, and I understand your confusion of where I wake up and am still dreaming. This is common for me though as I often wake up within dreams that are very strong or intuitive. I suspect this may indicate a different level of consciousness.

    I have been pondering but am quite reluctant to accept what I think it is conveying also due to follow up dream. (just dreamed of a well known actress pursuing my same job in another location and I had to stop her before she got in and it ruined her career!) I spoke with an organization about a contracting to part time job just before having this dream. I was desperate for something to pay my bills but when I met with them I discovered it was more against my core values than what I had thought when reading their advertisement. I have been pushing this out of my mind convincing myself that it is just my childhood “programming” that makes me reluctant to move forward and that I can adjust a little for something that I need to do (pay the bills). The job is a perfect fit but the organization is unsettling.

    The symbols you addressed seem to bring things closer for me in understanding. I see the airplane as possibly a dual symbol of self seeking escape and maybe more as a literal defining object of the job location by the airport. The sweetheart seems to play a dual role as well. Doing work that I love would feel like a perfect match and I would have some kind of associated “relationship” feelings. Doing that job would require betrayal of my feminine self on some level. The other symbols are quite likely spot on.

    The salon seemed a somewhat central focus and your referencing it to appearances makes sense. I would be in charge of their appearance. It seems the hair is pointing out that there is something more underneath the surface that would be revealed in time – or something would change in my personal life as a result of the situations and my own ambiance. The fact that I don’t consciously know these details but possess strong feelings of betrayal and confusion seems to indicate that I need to understand without knowing.

    The last part where I am running may be pointing to why I would go against my own self - Carrying too heavy a load wearing heavy work boots and trying to run, yet moving at someone else’s pace. My companion was male yet unknown identity. He was wearing the heavy waist load and boots as well (don’t think I mentioned this in original). I am not sure where to go with the balance idea but it seems plausible.

    Re: lock of hair

    Thanks for that excellent summary. For some reason I had a problem with seeing clearly into the dream and that is why I interpreted it the way I did. Most often I get a 'sensing' of a dream and take a particular route in my interpretation. Your age may play into some of the confusion, you being at the border of young adult entering into the midlife stage. I sensed the dream might be focusing on recent experiences in your life but something kept me from going that route. Perhaps there was an element of maturity I sensed that, although the dreams was about recent events, kept me from addressing the dream in terms of a younger adult. Or your 'childhood programming' may have come through with that conflict vs your mature self covering up parts of the dream that would otherwise be more expressive {for me} in what the message would be. One thing I was correct about . You were able to put the pieces together to make a full visible picture. That is what dreams are. A puzzle. That would be the mature you showing through.

    I like you thoughts about the airplane being a dual symbol since that what all symbols are. Symbols are addressing more than one aspect, often several, at one time. Present and past, dual events in the present, a combination of dual experiences both past and present. Often when we look back at a dream we see things that become clear and represent some other aspect in life. The dream will hold to the original interpretation but there is addition applications that become visible later on. Dreams are simply fascinating and just as you think you have it all pinned down, something else pops up. I dare say if you look back at this dream in a years time you will see something we missed in our first observation.

    So, in teh end it was you who interpreted your own dream. One goal in life for me is to get people interested in their dreams. Another is to help them understand and interpret their own dreams. Some people have little trouble doing so. With some it takes some in-depth explanation and education. And still with others you can hit the nail on the head and provide a clear and correct interpretation and they still fail to see. You fit in with the first category.
