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.

    Dark dream still lingering

    I was in a sex store with a friend, I had tried on some skimpy clothing and was walking around in them. We had originally come in because I wanted to show her a pamphlet I had found in the store. I then saw this lady that I babysat for who I was pretty close with and her children. I had the feeling that I had seen them there before. They seemed disturbed to see me there again though. The little girl asked me what I was doing there, she seemed to insinuate I was being perverted. The mother scolded her for being rude and they left.
    It was night. I was then in a fast food restaurant with two friends when we saw some old friends we had disconnected with for good reason. Somehow we were guilted into sitting with them. I was feeling pretty awful about myself as this one girl makes me feel terrible about myself. Then this guy that I like came in with some of his friends. He sat down with us, leaving his friends. He was tapping his finger against mine and so I held his hand--he immediately held me close to him and told me he would keep me safe and love me. We were suddenly outside of this large student building. There was something sneaky going on in this building and we were trying to figure out what it was. We were hiding on this terrace in a secret section on the outdoor part of the building. There was a long path that stretched before us, donkeys were walking along the path. The land went up on both sides by about three or four feet, at the top of the small hills there was dense forest. A large group of old women dressed in black walking with sticks were walking beside the donkeys. suddenly all at once the women started beating the donkeys to death. I started crying. There was a lot of pandemonium, hundreds of donkeys were running down the path. Next we were on these white mounds, across from us on another mound was a little gremlin/gnome woman sitting down, she looked like she was a slave. A man of the same race came and sat beside her. My companion told me to press a button on my watch and we changed into the same creatures. Announcements were made on speakers about us so we left this area. We were back on the street and we saw a large group of the women who did the donkey killing so we walked up a small staircase. My companion told me to press the button on my watch again but I was freaking out and told him I wouldn't change again. The women passed the staircase and we pretended to be ignorant of what they were doing. We cheered for them as they passed. The women looked very different though, they were young and looked like wild women, they were also naked.

    Re: Dark dream still lingering

    Katharine,
    I believe your dream is addressing certain guilt you are feeling. There is something you have built up guilt over, perhaps the sexual aspect of your life. You are probably feeling emotional burden over this guilt within you.

    How do you feel about sex in general? Do you feel guilt when you think about it or actually engage in it? How did your parents, your mother in particular feel about sex?

    I see within the dream a desire for acceptance and love. Do you feel a need to find this in your life? I believe you are carrying emotional burdens {the donkeys} that threatens the balance in your life. If it doesn't have to do with sex it has to do with not receiving proper love and attention earlier in life.

    If you will let me know your impressions to my interpretation we may be able to look deeper into the possibilities to the dream message.

    Re: Re: Dark dream still lingering

    Sex for me causes some anxiety. During, I usually am thinking that I would like it to be over with. I definately have guilt about relationships I've had this year. My parents aren't very open about their sex life but I do know that they went to a marriage counsellor who apparently tried to get them to be more sexually active. Their marriage has improved a lot since then, from my stance that is.
    I have felt very much ont eh outside of my family, I'm ****** not out, and generally have different views on all topics of discussion. I've lost my best friend of eight years(we dated and that destroyed our friendship which was already rocky at the time) and currently don't really have any one person that sort of fills that void.
    I do have issues with sex, but I can't figure out why. I usually fall head over heels for someone and then when it comes to sex my libido drops--despite usually being a pretty horny teen.

    Re: Re: Re: Dark dream still lingering

    Katharine,
    Thanks so much for your response. Your dream and response shows just how important the sexual aspect plays within our lives and our dreams.

    I saw within your dream deep anxieties that had to do with sexual aspects. This often translates into a need for love and acceptance that has never been properly provided. The great part of this need stems from the parents. Your anxieties and inability to maintain proper libido probably has its roots in early childhood and the relationship with your parents. There could be other traumatic experiences also that need to be unconvered. It is very important to discover what these influences are, acknowledge and confront them, and put them in there proper place. I suggest you seek counceling, preferably from a trained psychologist. If you do not find the source to your anxieties they will carry on throughtout your adult life and will be a negative influence on any meaningful relationship you try to engage in. These are deep seeded anxieties that will influence your happiness and ability to show proper love to others, whether it be sex or love in a relationship.

    We all need at some time some type of counceling in our lives, so don't feel as if this is something to be abnormal to do. My life was greatly influenced by my fathers inability to show love and acceptance to me when I was a young boy. It played itself out throughout my adult years until I was in my late 20s, in a sexual way. Looking for love in all the wrong places. It was an unconscious motivation and without the proper tools to discipline myself I hurt others as well as myself in my relationships. Not until I reached the age of 42 and discovered Joseph Campbell and Carl Jung was I able to reconcile all of this.

    If you will do what is necessary now to resolve the inner conflicts that are the stimulus for your anxieties you can live a balanced and happy life, both in loving relationships and sexually. You are still very young and your whole life is ahead of you. To do otherwise will only cause heartaches and much more frustrations.
    I wish you the best in your search.
    Gerard

    Thank you so much for your interpretation, this has been a lot of help to me and a lot of what you've said rings true for me. I will look into seeing a psychologist as soon as is possible
