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.

    Feet peeling

    I had a dream just on waking where the soles of my feet peeled off almost to the bone. There was not much blood and I wasn't scared. More alarmed. What could this mean?

    Re: Feet peeling

    Sim,
    First let me provide info what dreams are and about. They are about your emotional energies and are attempting to inform you which energies are not balanced causing difficulties in your life. These energies come from life experiences and influences especially from early life. These form the foundations of your personality and attitudes. Dreams are nature's tool to help heal emotional pain and injury {physical and psychological}. Just as the body has the immune system to help heal and protect the body, the psyche has the dream.

    As to your dream. Being a dream that you had upon awaking may suggest there are recent experiences and emotional/personal issues that are bothering you and {your dreams are trying to help you find resolution, work through the issues}. All dreams have at least two meanings/applications and although there are literal applications {as with recent experiences} most of the dream language is symbolic and usually go to not only the recent experiences but also the foundations to why you act/react to them {due to personality and personal attitudes}. That is where an experienced dream analyst can provide insights to what the dream message might be.

    As for interpreting dreams and the symbolic language we have to consider why you have these emotional energies, what they represent {images and actions in your dream} and what causes them. That goes to foundations for your personality and personal attitudes. Even though the dream is addressing recent emotional experiences it is also, and most part is addressing the underlying issues for your personality, attitudes, actions and reactions. I analyze a dream by interpreting the images and actions and then put it all into context as in a story, the context of each image/action as it applies to your psychology. I see this dream addressing those issues as much or more so than any current emotional experiences you are dealing with {again, foundations of personality/attitudes will greatly determine your actions/reactions to the current experience}.

    Let me state before providing my interpretation that I am limited to providing only an outline of the emotional energies the dream is presenting. I have no knowledge of your personal life so I can not say what recent experiences the dream is trying to communicate. When that info is known then the images and actions can be paired with your actual waking life involving recent experiences {and related experiences over time}. It is the underlying issues that need the most work and dreams attempt to do that by providing you with story lines of what the emotional energies are and how they came about.
    An example of life experiences caused by unconscious emotional energies would be someone who constantly enters into relationships {romantic and practical} that tend to fail. A person is prone to act according to their foundational psychological experiences {especially in early life}. I see your dream as doing just this, pointing to your foundation emotional energies.

    Interpenetration of Images/Actions/Symbols

    Dream Title: Feet peeling
    -Discarding negative foundational experiences/influences

    I had a dream just on waking where the soles of my feet peeled off almost to the bone.
    -soles symbolizes your roots, base, core
    -feet symbolizes your foundations, stability and sense of understanding
    -peeling symbolizes shedding away of old ways, habits and conditions
    -to the bone symbolizes the underlying structure of your personality/psych

    There was not much blood and I wasn't scared. More alarmed. What could this mean?
    -not much blood symbolizes life’s energy source, emotional nourishment
    -I wasn’t scared/more alarmed symbolizes temporary and fleeting worries causing anxieties

    Besides being a dream you had upon awakening the dream also points to 'not being scared' but something that causes anxieties, likely related to recent experiences. It could also point to recurring reactions to life experiences due to personality and developed attitudes. Look at your childhood and determine what early life experiences would cause you to possess a personality/personal attitudes that fit with what I have provided. You need to discard these unconscious motivators so you can find balance and harmony in your life and not let the emotional energies negatively influence or control your actions/life.

    I do ask for a response to my analysis. The interpretation is free so a response is the way to reward my efforts.
