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: Tropical Depression 18 {9}

    s,
    I searched the web for 'Ray Mears Bushcraft'. I as curious because being a Tennessean the one time basketball coach at the University of Tennessee was named Ray Mears. Not the same person of course but both undoubtly have the ability to inspire.

    Most people are out of touch with nature. Especially Americans. We tend to talk a good game about how much we care about the environment but our actions are less than admirable. Europeans have a better grasp of the reality of the dire condition of the planet. And with a lowlife like George W. Bush {nature's anti-christ} you can see why. I don't believe nature has a good/bad mentality but she does respond to the abuse humans cause. Global warming is a fact and the number and intensity of hurricanes reflect that. 60% of Americans live near the coast and with every destructive storm more and bigger construction is made. We bring much of the suffering upon ourselves with our attitudes.

    In a response to a question you possed about my interest in numerology. I really don't consider myself an expert or even well versed in numerology. My interest is in those things that influence the psyche. Perhaps the biggest influence is the primitive mind, those influences that all humans possess. Mythology is a blueprint of those influences and from Greek mythology you have the numerical value assigned to the feminine, or Goddess. That number is 9. The vibes I mention in my posts concerning what I deem as intuitive connectiveness to nature center on the number 9. Those vibes have been uncharacteristically strong for almost a month and began prior to Katrina. The number 3 also has been prominent. The last several days has seen an increase of those vibrations. Rita must be the reason. The Great Mother {link} is calling out and those in tune with her consciousness feel the vibrations. At least that is my explaination to the vibes I feel.

    One last thing about the number 9 and 3. If in fact there is that perceived connection to earth's consciousness then I fear that number 3 has dire consequences. There is Katrina and Rita. Both are feminine names and nature's doing. Is there a third natural disaster yet to be realized?

    Re: Tropical Depression 18 {9}

    Consider this. If you add the total of the latitude/longitude of Galveston, Tx

    29n18 94w48 click here for chart


    you get 45. In dreams it is often the case the totality of the numbers have meaning to the dreamer's life. 4+5=9

    is there meaning in Galveston being at this latitude/longitude? Inquiring minds need to know

    Nine is the number of the universe {The Cycle of Time Number 432}. The influence of nine is part of the psyche. If what is true at one level of consciousness, is it true at all levels of consciousness. Is there a link to the consciousness of the mind to the universal? In dreams it is.Archetypes . How else can we experience the link. In dreams we have myth. The earth is measured in latitude/longitude. Physical and metaphyiscal. Two different levels of the one psyche.

    Question to the regular at the 'Dream Forum'? Am I confusing some of you with this dialog about the hurricanes? Part of it has to do with .synchronicity.
    This gets to the depths of Jungian thought. The relationship of the individual psyche to the universal is most important to understand. It is probably the most controversal aspect of Jungian thought. But it is most important to understand because it gives speech to what can not be explained because of the mystery it holds. Science is at a lose because it requires more than ordinary thinking. It is also most important if you ever hope to know how to read dreams. It is one thing to interpret a dream, and another to read see into the dream.

    Re: Tropical Depression 18 {9}

    A quick quote may befit this thread. (Possessing no original thoughts of my own so must follow those that have gone before me...)

    Re: Re: Tropical Depression 18 {9}

    Kathy,
    Great insights. And more related to this thread than you may think. This is a quote Campbell often repeated. It suggests we are as much metaphysical beings as much as if not more so as we are physical beings.

    And it goes to the crux of what I am trying to get across. If indeed there is a true spiritual {metaphysical} aspect that Jung so aggressively argued {spirituality being a metaphysical aspect beyond a physical understanding, but not necessarily something that is miraculous} then what I propose in my suggestion is we as humans have access to the realm of nature that is capable of informing the human senses. It is all within nature {which of course is counter to Western religions} which has a basis of relativity to human nature. If other animals can sense earthquakes, tsunamies and other natural events then is it not possible humans can also sense certain events. The Force that is alluded to in Star Wars is exactly that force within nature.

    In Darwin's Origin of Species Natural Selection provides nature with the tools to survive, or become extinct. Campbell offers up how new born turtles instinctively know to run to the ocean upon birth. This is imprinted within their psyche. This imprintation in humans is called Archeypes.

    More on Campbell's turtles
    Campbell was also making another point when giving his story about turtles instinctive nature at birth {borrowed from Leo Frobenius}. He states that the turtles look like small tanks making a dash to the sea, being picked off by gulls, dive bombers striking at the new borns. And just when the infant turtles reach the ocean and what seems to be safety and freedom, they are eaten by the large fish in the water.
    Life is tough!

    How true.

    Re: Tropical Depression 18 {9}

    Gerard,

    Agreed. Nature is human nature, human nature is Nature. Everything is one and the same. I think it is our, (human), fallacy in trying to separate one from another. Nature is Nature however experienced whether it be as "animal, vegtable or mineral" or celestial (Gai, the sun or other universal bodies). I feel this sense, intuition, to danger is expressed as the fight or flight instinct innate to All sentient existences, including Gai in the definition of both sentient and being a spiritual being. Can not Darwin’s Natural Selection then also be applied to Gai? Or for that matter, the Sun, or the whole host of forms in physical existence? Life, death, rebirth. It's displayed and reinforced in all of Nature, in all of physical existence. Where would Nature conceptualize of this cycle? Possibly from it’s own experience of life, death and rebirth. Gai has sensed, intuited, the advancing danger to it’s Self. Therefore it reacts. It’s energy pattern, (it’s thoughts & emotions), even before the slightest development of ‘physical’ reaction could be the cause of these vibrations as it’s energy emanates throughout. Different forms receive different ‘wave lengths’. The animals just prior to the incident. Some select humans, those with highly developed intuition, before a storm is even a single piece of dust in the air. This whole series of events could be viewed as a demonstration of intuition. Including Nature’s intuition and Natural Selection self survival instinct.


    (And you’re first thought will probably be ‘where’s the empirical thought/evidence in this statement?” You’re right, there is none present. I remain on the plane of the lowly and inferior so have yet to make progress in developing rational thought.)

    Re: Tropical Depression 18 {9}

    A quick update on Rita. I ventured out only for a while and that was to watch my grandson practice soccer. The vibes are still constant but more in an ebb and flow. Hopefully that is a position sign that Galveston and Houston will avoid a direct hit. Displacing another 2.5 million people would a real catastrophe for us all, not to speak of the deaths and suffering the storm will/has caused.
    Perhaps our meditations and prayers will have a positive effect also.

    Rita is predicted to hit Texas early tomorrow morning {around 4AM cst}. If it comes ashore as predicted it will hit Beaumont, Tx. She will be a catagory 3, a major hurricane.
    The latitude/longitude of Beaumont, Tx. is
    30n05 94w06
    Yep! 135

    The storm is predicted to stall out over Texas for several days after it comes ashore and could cause up to 2 feet of rain. I don't see this hurricane dying out without leaving some real damage. There could be as much damage from the rain afterwards as the storm arriving onshore. If the damage is to property and not to people, Mother Nature will have been mercifull.
