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: daughter dreams of big fish consistent

    worried momma,
    If the nightmares continue then there is a reason for them and you should try and discover what that might be. Dreams are about the emotions but a 3 year old's dream would be different from an adult's dreams. Usually these type dreams are brought on by something that frightened your daughter during waking hours. And usually these are benign issues that will go away within time. But if there is something out of the norm in your daughter's life, either psychological or physical, something that frightens her because they were/are psychologically damaging {or possibly physically} then the dream could be dealing with an issue that needs attention and resolution {nature's intent for dreams is to help resolve emotional issues}. Is there anything that could be psychologically damaging in your child's life, physical or emotional abuse? If she is losing sleep on a continuous basis then there is likely something in her life causing it, something beyond the normal 'frights' {a TV show that frightened her, or reading a scary story}.

    There is the possibility the dream is pointing to something physical. It is not an everyday occurrence for dreams to point to physical aliments but it happens. If the nightmares continue and there is not any psychological cause for them then take her to your physician for a checkup. Give it another week and it the dream nightmares continue take her to a doctor just to be safe.

    As for the image of the big fish in a dream. In an adult's dream a fish could point to religious or spiritual issues {see fish in dream dictionaries at top of page}. Often the fish symbol denotes the true self, the inner being beyond the ego centered perceived person we think we are. But a 3 year old child's mind hasn't developed to the point where there are built up emotional issues {unless there is something wrong psychologically already in her life}. The big fish could be pointing to 'something big' that is taken place in her life that is frightening. Consciously she may be unable to communicate what that is but her true self, her unconscious mind has stored the experiences in her mind and uses symbolic images to describe the experience {dreams speak in a language of symbol and metaphor}. If there is something 'big' about her that is not readily visible then it could be something invisible that the psyche has taken note of. Normally it would be psychological but it could be a physical ailment. Losing sleep and bags under her eyes is not normal over a long period of time.

    Give it a week or so and if the nightmares continue then take her to your physician {physical doctor}. In the mean while make sure nothing is psychologically wrong in her life. If it is something benign the nightmares will cease. If not then look for the reason for the ongoing nightmare dreams.
