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.

    strange forest animal?

    id like to start off by saying this dream wasn’t a nightmare, as in I didn’t wake up disturbed, but the more I think about it the more I get uneasy.

    Me and a couple of friends were deep in the woods, just walking around. We found an abandoned house and went inside of it. Inside there was no furniture, only a floor made out of stone and an animal of some sort in the corner. When we looked closer at the animal, it looked like a calico kitten, but there was something about it that resembled a human baby. It also appeared to have something inside of it.

    When it meowed, it was mournful and drew us near it, but immediately a snake would launch itself out of the cats mouth. The snake wasn’t exactly a snake, it just looked like one, but it felt more like a parasite. My friends and I kept being drawn closer to the cat, but the very presence of it was something horrible and a distinct feeling of terror I am unable to convey in words. Someone stepped on it, smashing the cat, before we all ran as fast as we could out of the house.

    When we finally made it home, we realized one of my friends was missing, but we never spoke about it, because we feared the creature would sense it’s name being said.

    Re: strange forest animal?

    Anonymous 3-15,
    When looking at this dream understand that the cat, kitten is you as is the house. Dreams speak primarily in a symbolic language with most images and actions being metaphors for you and your emotions. Dreams are all about the dreamer's emotional energies. My take from your dream is there was a past negative experience{s} that has affected you in your current life. Was/is there a lack of good parenting from one or both parents? Something in your past {which may still be occurring} has deeply affected you emotionally. You may have repressed these experiences or they could be experiences you are aware of but do not want to thin or talk about them. They still affect who you are {personality/personal attitudes}.

    The snake may be the key image. Look to possible sexual experiences but if not any the snake may represent an experience{s} that changed you because of the emotional energies involved. These experiences could very well be from early childhood {and again may be continuing}. Parenting is always suspect in such dreams, one or both parents. Read what I have provided below and see if it connects. A response will help in better understanding what emotional issues are involved.

    -couple of friends-aspects about yourself you need to acknowledge/get to know {in your unconscious}
    -deep in the woods-unconscious aspects you are unaware of {emotional energies}
    -walking around-spending your life with this experience{s}
    -found an abandoned house-lacking external guidance
    -went inside it-governed by unconscious emotional energies
    -no furniture-lacking proper relationships in your life
    -floor made of stone-your foundations, experiences that formed your attitudes and personality
    -animal in corner-characteristics about yourself formed from neglected relationships
    -animal looked like calico kitten-varied aspects related to innocence
    -resembled human body-parallel to conscious self
    -appeared to have something inside it-unconscious contents {possibly repressed}

    -meow was mournful-anguished expression in conscious life
    -drew us near it-current experiences that have caused anguished expression
    -snake would launch itself-something in your waking life that you are not aware of or that has not yet surfaced {emotional energies} .
    -out of cat’s mouth-expression of emotional energies that may translate in conscious actions {yours}
    -snake wasn’t exactly a snake, it just looked like one-experience in life where snake is something other than a snake {**see explanation below}
    -felt like a parasite-a person and/or past experience that is emotionally draining
    -friends and I drawn to closer to cat-emotional energies that have influence over your conscious actions
    -something horrible and a distinct feeling of terror I am unable to convey in words-repressed emotions from past negative experiences
    -someone stepped on it, smashed cat-past experiences that have caused emotional injuries
    -before we all ran as fast as we could out of the house-an inability to escape emotional injuries

    When we finally made it home, we realized one of my friends was missing, but we never spoke about it, because we feared the creature would sense it’s name being said.
    -part of you is missing {caused by past experience and related emotional injuries}. Repressed issues or issues you do not wish to think about. Creature would be person and/or past experience. Name being said would be the person or experience that is in your mind {may be unconscious/repressed}

    **the snake may be seen as phallic and thus symbolize temptation, dangerous and forbidden sexuality {because of past negative experiences}. If you are afraid of the snake, then it signifies your fears of sex, intimacy or commitment {which would be the result of negative past experiences}. The snake may also refer to a person around you who is callous, ruthless, and can't be trusted.
