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.

    sitting on lawn and staring

    I was sitting on the carpet in the family room watching tv with my parents in their house. There was a real neighbor my parents don't get along with who was invading our privacy by sitting on a picnic blanket on our backyard lawn staring at us through the glass door of the living room. Since this neighbor has staring problem in real life, we usually just ignore her or don't make eye contact. But I started back as to say go away while my parents watched tv. I think she looked down. She had food treats on her blanket. I think she said she wanted to give us food (like she was giving other neighbors food). This dream was some time ago so it's hard to remember all the details.

    Re: sitting on lawn and staring

    Hope,
    Here is my amplification of the images and actions so you can examine them. My sense from these are you have developed attitudes from childhood that have created personal traits in your adult life. These unconscious energies prevent you from having confidence in yourself in certain environments, in particular when in interactions with people or a crowd of people. The dream also seems to be pointing to a lack of proper emotional nourishment from family/parents. 'They were watching tv' instead of giving needed attention to your emotional needs. Also possible substituting of the lacking nourishment with 'feel good' actions on your part.

    As for the other meaning/applications {all dreams have at least two}, there were probably recent experiences related to these traits. The staring of the neighbors may point to a recent situation that was 'staring' you in the eye, a situation you may have felt a lack of confidence in being in. Self confidence may be the central theme of the dream, if not overall then in certain situations/environments.

    Read the following and what i have provided and see where it may fit. I do believe the dream is strongly pointing to personal traits/attitudes which probably have to do with your childhood upbringing.
