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: Question Re Dream Structure


    Here is what I got.

    Morning indicates a new start, a new journey.

    The hummingbird awakens and turns into a red butterfly, I guess this may indicate this new beginning may hold something beautiful.

    The library dream, which had a gaping hole and a bomb may indicate your perceived journey may have obstacles and potential threats which cardboard getting wet may represent parts of which you hold special may slip out.

    I guess their is a chance to break through all of this, which the man in the blue suit had a significant impact on you.

    Their may be some confusion in the end as the person of the desk asked you to pay money for the books you brought in.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Question Re Dream Structure

    Thank you, Alex.
    You present a few items that I had not "looked at" too closely:

    The gaping hole in the glass door or window

    There's a 'hole' - like punching a hole in my story/attitude?

    I had not even considered the cardboard but yes, one has a tendency to put precious things, or just things, in cardboard boxes. There seems to have been a fire, so what is left? Just the empty boxes. What do I think I have lost in the fire - burning out, cleansing, purging? But why are they on the roof?

    Yes, the man in the suit is also a candidate for a good resolution. Had not seen that either.

    Re: Question Re Dream Structure

    I had three other dreams this morning I took up before putting my attention to your post. I has been awhile since I have had that number of posts. But it is a lot less than it was several years ago when I had so many requests I could not keep up. I had to back off because I was unable to answer every post and for me that is unacceptable. I want to answer all posts and provide the best I can in my interpretations. Surprisingly with the three other dreams I was able to see 'within' the dreams and find clarity. Not having the past pressures from social obligations {before I retired} I am able to focus on the dreams and that seems to be paying off. I could not be more happier about that.

    OK, to your post.
    The Hibiscus tree and the humming bird. Of course we know trees often symbolize growth and branching out. The type of tree have symbolic meaning or it could merely be from an early experience or encounter with a Hibiscus tree. The hummingbird is a small bird that carries great potential and powers. It helps pollenant the 'tree' to make it grow and branch out into something new. Of course this would reflect some aspect of your life.

    If the tree/hummingbird dream is encapsulated within the library dream then I would think there would be a positive reflection of what the 'bomb' is. The bomb dream is in context of the question about precognitive dreams and there may be a connection there. perhaps there is something precognitive about the bomb dream that when realized will provide greater growth potential.

    Your post continues with a dialog about being in the 'same position'. The night turns into morning, perhaps a new awakening? The bird turns into a butterfly which is an insect that undergoes a metamorphosis to be its intended self.
    Could this be saying there is something else you have yet to recognize that is slowly having to go through the same metamorphosis as other past realizations? There has already been a 'blooming' and now you are going above even that growth.

    Perhaps it is saying there are still other aspects to your past that need to be realized and reconciled. 'You are not out of the woods' quite yet.
