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 fisher king

    i have been studying the various versions of the fisher king story,namely the origin of his wound,
    and trying to compare these with the psychological wounds we feel ,
    the version that has had special interest for me,
    is the one in which, the fisher king burns himself on the roasting salmon,a piece of which he tries to steal,
    jungian analyst ,robert johnson,states that this particular metaphor is a ref to ,
    someone who has a spiritual encounter,that is to much to bear,
    and again,jung used the term,a rellocation of the centre of gravity,of the ego conscious to the self,

    the salmon in celtic myth is indeed the carrier of wisdom of a mystical kind,and even christ(the spiritual self) is symbolised by a fish,
    i think we all have a wound that needs to be healed,
    for most of us ,psychological,stemming from past traumas ,
    but i feel also , what jung and johnson mention makes sense also,
    putting aside the usual associations of a wound being caused by past childhood traumas or even recent events,there must be a place left open for those that, have been wounded by a mystical experience,

    just as the fisher king, only found respite from his wound by fishing,
    which johnson refers to as looking into the unconscious and bringing it up,(inner work)
    i realize visiting the mds forum and the number of middle-agers or near middle-agers there are ,looking for answers,to ease the journey towards wholeness,
    gives a lot of credability to what ,this ancient myth is saying,
    the great news is,
    the myth holds the solution to the problem aswell,

    Re: the fisher king

    Thank you for calling attention to this. As many others, I too experienced this premature or early metaphysical or mystical experience, before Psyche was properly developed. The unconscious has conveyed this exact message in several dreams. As the intuitive sense further develops the wounding remains an issue often a source of doubt and 'block'. I'll need to revist Jung & Johnson on this and those dreams to perhaps gleen a better perspective.

    Kind regards,
