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.

    reunion and magic flight

    hi,i would be greatful for any thoughts on this dream,
    i meet a female i have not seen for years,
    we embrace each other and burst into tears,i remember not being ashamed of showing such emotion,
    we are both relieved at finding each other after such a long time.
    she tells me not to be worried by the fact she has a ring,as she wants to be with me.
    we are surrounded by guards and all exits are protected,but,
    i have a magic bicycle,like the one in the e.t. movie,as they close in around us,i prepare to fly into the sky.
    i was reminded of the ,bride theft and magic flight symbolism from the hero's journey,the translation being,the rescuing of feminine qualities (anima), from outdated, negative,attitudes.
    i suppose another version would be ,the knight on his charger rescuing the damsel from an immposed betrothal.

    the female in this dream was a friend from way back,who had trouble getting away from a violent,possessive partner.
    i helped her get away,then a chase ensued.
    myth in action.
    regards steve.

    Re: reunion and magic flight

    Steve,
    The stimulus for your dream most likely plays into the message that it is tyring to communicate but the overall theme seems to be the acceptance of your feminine aspect. Not only is the primary character female but the emotions {burst into tears, not ashamed of showing such emotion} are also feminine. The guards are probably that aspect, masculine, that prevents you from wholly accepting the feminine {the exits they are guarding are the outlets for your feminine aspects}. The bicycle may be the search for balance. Magic is often a metaphor of how we wish we could magically ascend to that desired place, balanced and harmoneous. But in reality it is one's own discipline that is the magic.

    Your friend's experience is your experience, trying to get away from an abusive masculine self. The chase continues.

    Re: Re: reunion and magic flight

    thanks jerry,your last sentence made sense to me,
    something that i missed when looking at it.
    its the maleness that dominates.
    the magic cup,the lamp,the elixir that we seek, is the feminine .
    this is why i think,i have been innundated with grail dreams again.
    i don't think i have switched off from my feminine qualities,but i do feel that i am being reminded of what it takes, a balancing act, ref the bike,and it does take discipline.
    i have a lot to learn i know.regards steve
