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.

    Re: drowning

    Hi Cassandra,
    Firstly, don't worry too much about the people in your dream, they do not reflect the real person. It's natural to wake up and feel upset with what you have just experienced.

    When two people share a role in a dream ie, yourself and your daughter it could be an amalgamation of beliefs, or just reinforcing a message. A way to discover what they might be is to write down three words to describe your daughter's personality. Then see if any of these overlap your personality.

    If I took a guess at what your daughter represented it may be a symbol of a period of your relationship with your husband. Think about what age your daughter is and think about what happened in your real life about that time. So if she is 15 years old, what happened to you 15 years, months, days ago etc.

    The thing that stands out in your dream to me, is that your dream husband (not to be confused with your real husband)didn't come to your aid. You had to save yourself. Normally a husband would not do that. I know if my wife disappeared in the water, I would be in there like a shot trying to find her. Your dream husband could be your masculine aspect, your left brain function, intellect, rational thinking, assertiveness, doing rather than being, competition and looking at the world from a mechanical point of view. It might help to write down 3 words to describe your husbands personality to see which masculine aspect it symbolises. Ask yourself, was there a situation in your real life recently (within the last 3-5 days), where you had to use a feminine aspect, because your masculine aspect didn't come to your aid eg, you used a passive response, rather than an assertive response. Dreams generally leave a little clue in them to give you a hint about what the real life situation is. Sorry to give you more questions, but you are the only person with the true answers. For this interpretation to be right it has to click. Give you an 'Ah ha' sensation. If you don't then it is not right. The dream is trying to inform you something about yourself that you are not consciously aware of. Cheers, Stephen G.

    Re: drowning

    This dream may be trying to communicate something about yourself, some unconscious conflict that may cause emotional conflict, perhaps having to do with your husband or/and some masculine aspect. {}the husband in a woman's dream often symbolizes the actual waking relationship between the female dreamer and the male husband. Both it also can symbolize the female dreamer's masculine aspect. Or it can do both. Which fits this dream is the puzzle that only the dreamer can know for certain.}

    You can become very emotional about this aspect of your life. You are searching for the truth, yet you are afraid of it also {the truth}. You have be experiencing hurt feelings/emotions. It may be due to neglect to some part of your life, perhaps some physical aspect. You look to your own resources to help overcome this conflict and there may be some degree of guilt because of it.

    One possibility that come to my mind is there is conflict some part of the relationship with your husband. You are probabably ready to confront this conflict because of the emotional stress. There may be feelings of neglect involved in this conflict. You look to your own self resources, perhaps inner strenght, or some perhaps physical thing to help you through these stressful times. And there may be guilt involved due to this need for self assurance. Freud may be a factor here {poles are often Freudian for the male phallus}.

    Another possibility is there is conflict between your inner masculine and feminine aspects. There may be forces in your waking life that cause you to use the masculine qualities {aggressiveness, being forceful, demanding, unforgiving} when you rather be your self {natural the feminine qualities}. Often in our competitive, stressful lives, and world, women have to engage in behavior that is counter to their feminine grounding {less competitive, sensitive, feeling for the other, compassion}. When you look to your feminine self you are confronted with having to give all your energies to trying to save those innoncent aspects of your femininity. This can cause psychological conflicts, inner turmoil that resides in the unconscious, and can affect how you live your life. You may need to acknowledge these conflicts and resolve them. That may mean not giving in to the masculine {as described above} and being your true self {which is centered in the feminine qualities}.

    Look at both possibilities and let me know which, if either fit your life. Your response and follow-up may shine new light on the possibilities.

    Re: Re: drowning

    Sorry it took me so long to reply, I think it is probably the first answer, for reasons being that my husband and I do not have a whole lot of time together at this point. Maybe I am afraid of growing apart, and I just don't have time to think about it during the day. I have allot of strange dreams so I am sure I will write back. Thank you
