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.

    things and spirit

    Hi Jerry,

    This dream is in many different parts that I cannot recollect as a whole.
    I remember being with my parents in a room full of flowers in vases. The flowers were everywhere in many colours. I remember arguing with my mother there but my father has calmed the conversation down.

    Later on I remember being with a boy in the car. Hugging and kissing, saying goodbye and saying to each other we will meet later at a party.

    Then another location.

    I am with my brother looking for my shoes. I don't know if I was barefoot but I was missing my shoes I was wearing before. I couldn't find them so we went into a shoe shop and I tried a pair of light coloured shoes but they seemed expensive so I didn't buy them. Somehow I found my shoes going back to the place I left them at. I later run to the train station to catch the train.

    Next I am home. I thought I was seeing Mary and Jesus. But then I see my mother in the bed holding my father's naked body in sheets. He is slowly dying. My brother and I say our goodbyes to him and mother tells us to leave the room. I remember then seeing our dog (in real life) going to the room with my mother and father. Then I hear a big screaming cry from my mother. I go back to that room and feel my father's spirit leaving his body. His body goes limp and then I wake up.

    Looking forward to hearing your comments on this dream. Thank you M.

    Re: things and spirit

    I see two patterns in the dream that stand out. One has to do with family and likely is addressing literal family relationships as well as 'inner' aspects of 'being whole'. I also see masculine aspects that may need to be more prevalent in your personality. There are undoubtedly personal associations to some of the actions but only you would be able to identify those.

    The opening of the dream pictures flowers in a vase which may suggest a desire for a full and happy life. But there is a conflict of feminine {emotions?} and it requires a strong masculine self to maintain a balance. This first part {assuming it was the beginning of the dream} sets the stage for the rest of the dream and what the dream is trying to communicate}.

    The second tidbit shows you embracing your masculine self but having that aspect depart. Meeting at the party would represent a reunion for a happier self.

    Your brother is another masculine aspect {beyond any personal associations}. The shoes are your basic foundations an how you approach life. Without shoes you have left/lost basic principles {psyche principles such as your animus qualities}. You need to 'purchase' {obtain} these qualities but it comes at an emotional cost {too strong feminine qualities/emotional attitude?}. You need to find those qualities necessary to be on track to achieve wholeness.

    The last paragraph brings to mind a 'death and resurrection' motif. The mature feminine self {you} is holding the naked masculine, a part that is dying. The balanced self {male/female-brother/sister} are without true balance{it has left the room}. This is at the behest of the emotional self {mother}. Your animal nature {dog} has become a strong part of your waking life. The screaming cry is an emotional response. You are without a mature masculine identity.

    I sense the dream is depicting a weak masculine which would result in a too strong emotional self. Also family is involved which I sense is you as the mother. the father qualities may have to do with masculine relationships {husband}. There may not be enough support from him in the relationship. It could also be about the relationship 'dying' which would affect your emotions and the whole family {both inner and outer}.

    Try the analysis on for size and see if it fits.
