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: Two odd dreams

    You hit the nail on the head. This dream was from years ago I was roughly 17 at the time, sorry if I didn't include that information. I was going through some heavy mental health issues, some had steam from the situation I was in living overseas. Some from a divorce with my parents, and some from childhood issues with my father.

    My Mother always recounted our good relationship as mother and daughter, she said my father was jealous of it. Things only became worse when I grew older. At its zenith, I seriously began to retreat into a fantasy world, recreating a world I wanted in a virtual reality game.

    During this time, the nightmares had started too. They weren't as violent until between 16-22 years of age. However, they did wake me up in the middle of the night, feeling as though I was going to vomit.

    I'm not going to discuss anymore personal details than that, its just to add context to what you had analyzed. Which is completely correct.I understand this is a dream interpretation forum, not a place to air out all my grievances. And honestly I have been getting better, I'm pretty much over the mental health issues, a few things pop up here and there though.

    Thank you for your time and analyses.

    PS. Could you please direct me to more information of this, masculine aspect/s, I'm curious and I'd like to look into it.

    Re: Two odd dreams

    Here is my analysis of the rest of the second dream. I amplified the images and actions but not to the extent as I did the first paragraph. My sense of this last part is it illustrates your emotional condition as it is now.

    -friend is grinning, laughing erratically-rejected negative masculine aspects causing insecurities/a need to let go of issues {laughing}/search of something or someone that will make bring about wholeness to total self
    -he's in untied and unkempt straight jacket-aspects related to masculine/male who had 'unkempt' responsibilities creating self esteem issues and restricted personal growth
    -stable man says something inaudible-positive masculine aspects not being heard/experienced
    -crazy one says "thank you for visiting"-visiting reasons for having been ignored by masculine
    -he takes his long thumbnail/rips across inner arm-on the constant defense due to negative forces of unfulfilled masculine nurturance
    -gashing it wide open-deep wounds from unresolved issues
    -electricity lights up water-unconscious energies affecting whole life {life energies}
    -stable man's body explodes open-lack of inner balanced mascline aspects causing repressed anger
    -his entrails hit the roof of the cell-inner emotions of despair/hopelessness causing unexpressed anger and restricting wholeness in life
    -water becomes red-unconscious anger
    -the man falls away his organs-psychological health related to overwhelming emotions
    -now stuck to roof-permanent emotional energies within unconscious
    -pulling away from his body-masculine aspects influencing self esteem/self worth {body}
    -as he falls-lacking control
    -crazy man roaring with laughter-losing sight of goals prolonging {roaring} your insecurities {being laughted at}
    -his grin toothy and unnaturally wide-acceptance of issues causing extensive/abnormal conscious life

    The issues from childhood are controlling much of your life and need resolution. You ask about the 'masculine' aspects and more information. The man in your dreams are referencing the outer issues with your father as well as the injured/undeveloped masculine inner self. To better understand the inner masculine aspects read my page 'The Anima/Animus In Jungian Psychology'. There is a short video that explains your inner masculine.
