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.

    Sharp pains in head

    In my house, walking into open area, holding my phone. I feel sharp pains through the top of my head, get dizzy, and fall to the floor, with phone sliding out of reach. I think I must be having a stroke. Lying on the floor, I am semi-conscious. I can see things around me, but everything is spinning. I am trying to find phone to call 911 or my best friend, but can’t see/find it. Seems I lay there for a long time. I struggle to finally get up. Woozy, I notice that my front door is gone. Someone took it and replaced it with a cheap interior door just leaning against the opening. It has drilled holes, but no knob or lock, just leaning there. I go to move it, and then see that outside there are boxes of garbage all around my door and front yard. So I think someone put that there on purpose when they took the door. I start to clean it up, but am still too sick/dizzy to handle it so give up and go back inside. It is dark outside. Then, in the dream, I wake up and now see my real front door is back on and think,"that was just a dream". I didn’t really have a stroke. Then I start feeling the sharp pains in my head again,(I can physically feel the pains, like sharp as a knife pains) and I stand straight up, stretch my arms up in a V, like to welcome whatever is coming into my head, and then white light starts coming through the ceiling between my hands and into my head. The light is moving. I wake up (?), and feel the sharp pains in head still happening in reality. But either it is very brief and I quickly go back to sleep or pass out, or, I still wasn’t awake..??

    Re: Sharp pains in head

    Peggy J,
    My first impression of the dream when looking at your age is, do you have fears of having a stroke or other such conditions? Although the primary language of dreams is symbol and metaphor there are literal applications as well {the dream is stating/addressing an actual conscious experience or fact}. Symbolically a stroke represents an inability to function in a situation or life {normally}. The symbolic representation likely applies but the literal may also {all dreams have at least two meanings}. It could be the central theme of your dream on {on a literal level}.

    Other than that the dream seems to be addressing repressed emotions. You have some conscious awareness of the issues but are unable to resolve the issues. This is because of the unconscious energies that control your conscious life. Such energies begin in early life. I get the impression you are working on the unconscious issues either personally and/or with help {professional therapy}. Whatever the issues the dream seems to depict they are at a dark place in your life. Confusion seems to be a part of the equation.

    If you will provide a response and any personal info you feel comfortable with I should be able to give insights to personal issues the dream is trying to communicate {with the info I have I can only provide an outline of the emotional energies}. Below is my analysis of the images and actions in the dream. These may help you better understand the dream as well as the emotional issues you are experiencing.

    Title: Sharp pains in head
    - Disharmony in mental, emotional life

    Dream
    In my house, walking into open area, holding my phone
    -In my house-You, your psychology
    -walking into an open area-progress in accessing your inner life
    -holding my phone-possessing ability to what needs to be communicated from unconscious to conscious understanding

    I feel sharp pains through the top of my head, get dizzy, and fall to the floor, with phone sliding out of reach
    -feel sharp pains through top of my head-feeling the emotional disharmony by giving thought to inner issues

    I think I must be having a stroke
    -an inability function normally

    Lying on the floor, I am semi-conscious
    -Lying on floor-established foundations
    -I am semi conscious-not wholely consciously aware

    I can see things around me, but everything is spinning
    -confusion in self awareness/who you are

    I am trying to find phone to call 911 or my best friend, but can’t see/find it
    -inability to communicate an important aspect of your true self

    Seems I lay there for a long time
    -established emotional energies

    I struggle to finally get up
    -awaken to/understanding internal conflict

    Woozy, I notice that my front door is gone
    -indecisiveness/confused in conscious life affecting opportunities to progress

    Someone took it and replaced it with a cheap interior door just leaning against the opening
    -unconscious aspects causing conscious insecurity/inadequacy

    It has drilled holes, but no knob or lock, just leaning there
    -producing unconscious energies of dependency you have no conscious handle over

    I go to move it, and then see that outside there are boxes of garbage all around my door and front yard
    -make inner changes to replace/reconcile negative attitudes/habits/traits in your conscious life

    So I think someone put that there on purpose when they took the door
    -unconscious energies that limit personal growth/progress

    I start to clean it up, but am still too sick/dizzy to handle it so give up and go back inside
    -conscious negative attitudes causing you to retreat mentally

    It is dark outside
    -conscious negative attitudes

    Then, in the dream, I wake up and now see my real front door is back on and think,"that was just a dream"
    -inability to confront difficult/painful emotions/experiences

    I didn’t really have a stroke
    -repression of emotions/experiences

    Then I start feeling the sharp pains in my head again,(I can physically feel the pains, like sharp as a knife pains) and I stand straight up, stretch my arms up in a V, like to welcome whatever is coming into my head, and then white light starts coming through the ceiling between my hands and into my head
    -start feeling sharp pains in my head again-mental disharmony
    -I stand straight up-asserting emotions
    -stretch my arms up like a V-{in}abilities to augment changes
    -like to welcome whatever is coming into my head-conforming to emotional energies
    -and then white light starts coming through the ceiling between hands and head-conscious illumination from unconscious energies

    The light is moving
    -needed changes to achieve illumination/harmony

    I wake up (?), and feel the sharp pains in head still happening in reality. But either it is very brief and I quickly go back to sleep or pass out, or, I still wasn’t awake..??
    -repressing unconscious emotional energies

    Re: Sharp pains in head

    Thank you, Jerry. These interpretations are helpful. I am not afraid of a stroke, literally I mean I never think about that. I do feel confused about next steps with things I view as opportunities, and am always analyzing and trying to figure those things out. Not with professional therapy but with personal study and meditation. I see it as a good thing that you see the white light as me getting more insight into the subconscious things that have affected me since childhood. Those things are more conscious now, but the age thing does concern me more and maybe that is the dark (losing hope) space of feeling I can't try to figure out my blocks to opportunities anymore, but must rather accept them.
