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.

    The Ocean is a Monster??

    Yet another dream..I have always had very vivid and strange dreams and love that a friend of mine found this site for me to help me understand them. I had a dream last nite about being in a tropical area with my boyfriend and we decided to go down to the beach and get in the ocean. We got on a float together and were floating around and both of us fell asleep and when we woke up we have floated way out and my boyfriend said to me you werent suppose to fall asleep look how far out we are. So we began to paddle back to beach and things were fine. We started back to our room because there was a storm coming in and apparently we were going to get ready to get married that evening. I guess we had eloped or something but we were just having a discussion about gettin ready and how surprised everyone would be when they found out. We stopped just under a shelter to the hotel and the waves started crashing in and we just stood there and watched as some surfers were trying to ride one of the rough storm waves in to the beach when the ocean became like a monster throwing them around and killing all the surfers and i got scared and made my boyfriend go in the hotel with me. We were in the hotel gettin ready for our "big day" when we heard ppl screaming in the hall way and the hotel had begun to flood. It was like the ocean had overflowed and was some huge monster sucking all the ppl it could into it and as far as possible from shore as it could and tossing their bodies around like rag dolls killing everyone insight. And my boyfriend was holding me telling me he loved me as we watched from our balcony cause we were in a room that was higher up and then i woke up and couldnt go back to sleep.

    Curious,
    Your dream reminds me of the tsunami that hit Southeast Asia a couple of years ago.

    It was like the ocean had overflowed and was some huge monster sucking all the ppl it could into it and as far as possible from shore as it could and tossing their bodies around like rag dolls killing everyone insight.

    Having read your last dream post 'Fire Dream'
    and your response to the interpretations i have a sense this dream is also addressing your relationship with your boyfriend.

    Tropical areas are often thought of as places where we can relax. But when life encounters conflicts all that is turned upside down, the seas overflow {emotions overflow} and we are often swept away by those emotions. Just when you think everything is fine, the storms {conflicts} move in and everything you had planned is swept away. Or at least it seems that way. When our emotions run high we often begin to the think the worst.

    The monster in your dream is most likely associated with those conflicts you are experiencing in your relationship. Everything that you had dreamed of about the relationship is being swallowed up one by one because of the conflicts. In your dream at the end your boyfriend is holding you and perhaps because you want to be strong and make the relationship work {even with your doubts about him}, you are higher up and the relationship has not yet been swept away.

    Does this address some of your emotions about the relationship? The positive thing about your dream is you are 'higher up' and deep down you want the relationship to work. The question is 'will there be worse tsunami' that will sweep away any prospects of the relationship surviving? That of course is primarily up to your boyfriend.

    Curious,
    Gerard's insight to your dream is very much akin to how I would view your dream - Jungians. My style is just more indirect. His more succinct. (Meaning I get wrapped up in the details before getting to the point... )

    What are your thoughts on the dream with Gerard's insights?

    Kind regards,
