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.

    Kissing someone - then dying

    Hi, I had the strangest, most vivid dream. I was not myself, but another, young woman. I was at a dance celebrating some man whom I do not know in my real life, but I did in the dream. Suddenly, the man reached out for me and kissed me on the lips, but right at that moment, blood appeared on his lips. We didn't realise where this blood was coming from. But then we noticed, that we had been shot through both our upper bodies by the same bullet. People, including the man I kissed, tried to help me, but there was nothing to do - I died. Then I woke up.

    What does that dream mean?

    Re: Kissing someone - then dying

    Cordelia,
    My sense of your dream is you have unresolved issues related to masculine energies. When I say masculine energies I mean both inner masculine aspects as well as experiences with a man or men. It may involve n experience{s} that changed you emotionally but may be something you have repressed, forgotten or ignored. But although this experience{s} has been put aside consciously it still unconsciously influences you. Often such experiences often impact relationships in later life a {specifically with men}. Also this experience{s} may have been put aside because you feel you were to blame {self punishment} which happens in instances where a person {male} you trusted betrayed that trust.

    As usual with my analysis I provide an amplification of the images and actions including the title {which often provides clues to the dream meaning}.

    Title: Kissing someone-then dying
    -kissing someone-communicating neglected/rejected aspects
    -then dying-causing changes

    I was not myself, but another, young woman
    -not myself-not your true self
    -but a young woman-reconciling past

    I was at a dance celebrating some man whom I do not know in my real life, but I did in the dream
    -at a dance-balance and harmony
    -celebrating some man-emotional release related to masculine
    -do not know in real life-unknown masculine aspects
    -but did in dream-unconscious knowledge

    Suddenly, the man reached out for me and kissed me on the lips, but right at that moment, blood appeared on his lips.
    -man reached out for me-masculine void that influences your life
    -kissed me on lips-communicating neglected aspect
    -at that moment-current emotional energies
    -blood appears on his lips-connecting with emotional energies related to masculine aspects

    We didn't realise where this blood was coming from.
    -didn't realise-unaware
    -where blood was coming from-source of emotional energies

    But then we noticed, that we had been shot through both our upper bodies by the same bullet.
    -we then noticed-coming to conscious attention
    -we had been shot-self punishment
    -through both our upper bodies-affecting emotional balance

    People, including the man I kissed, tried to help me, but there was nothing to do - I died
    -people-total aspects of self
    -including man I kissed-neglected/rejected masculine aspects
    -tried to help me-giving support
    -nothing to do-emptiness
    -I died-changed you

    I do ask for a response. A detailed response would especially be appreciated.
