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.

    doggie dreams! - requested from Molly the whippet!

    I know my dog dreams - she chases things in her sleep, growls, paws move, eyes roll up and side to side - sometimes with her eyes half open and has muscle spasms. This is not as some people would say ' my projection of 'humaness' on her, but observed biological behaviour' But, still many people say animals don't dream? That they are 'dumb' animals?
    From my experience with dogs and horses etc and other animals - I know most (mammals at least) dream.

    Biologically we are animals too. I often think because we have so much power over other animals, that people think somehow we are completely 'different? Because we are top of the 'pecking order' we have differentiated ourselves to such an extent that we have failed to respect other animals, wildlife and the earth in general.
    'being human' it seems is an excuse to exploit and justify horrifying behaviour with the excuse of
    ' it's just a dog', or 'they don't have feelings' etc etc.

    If animals dream - and the brainwave studies etc would suggest they do - what do they dream about?
    Do they dream in black and white?
    Do they remember their dreams? lol
    - am I just a daft vegetarian? lol

    hi claire,
    i have two dogs myself,and find it fascinating watching them twitch,growl, as they chase something in there dreams,and obviously they do dream as we do,
    a hindu would believe that they have a soul that is in the process of evolution towards a greater consciousness,and i know that the native americans would not have a problem with this,
    why they dream,i am not sure,is it for the same reasons we do?,
    when i have asked them ,they just look at me wagging their tales,
    do they know something we don't?.
    its a dillemma.

    I think they teach us about trust?
    A test of our 'humanity; is surely how we treat life we perceive as 'lesser' than us in some way?
    It's not about how you treat people who are your peers, or who you admire and have status of some sort, but rather how you respond to all life - and treat those who depend upon you, without looking for praise or recognition of any kind - merely 'doing the right thing' when noone is around to see?

    Zzzzzzzzzz. Huh? What? Where am I? Where’s that mouse? Or was it a rat?
    Yes, animals dream. Researchers Dr. Matthew Wilson and Kenway Louie at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology selected four lucky rats. They implanted micro-electrodes into the hippocampus, the region of the brain associated with memory. Then they monitored the firing patterns of the neurons hooked up to micro-electrodes.
    The patterns were the same whether the rat was dreaming about running around on a track or actually running around on a track. In fact, by just looking at the patterns, the scientists could tell whether the creature was dreaming about running or just sitting around. So why do animals dream? Probably to re-live and learn from experience.

    claire,
    i think you may be right ,
    i was thinking that if dreams tend to compensate lopsided conscious attitudes in our own consciousness,
    then why not the same in animals,
    they didn't catch a particular mouse or rat say,
    reliving the chase in a dream would serve as a learning tool,
    i also wonder if wild animals dream as much as domesticated ones do,
    in the wild they would have a mother and or pack, to watch and learn from,
    our pets are taken away from parents in some cases after only 12 weeks,so other than instinctual habbits ,
    we as humans must fall short,
