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.

    Understanding Archetypes-The Mother Archetype

    Excellent article you may want to read discussing the Mother archetype in myth. The author discusses the emotional and psychological patterns associated with the archetypes. Very informative especially if you are female.

    Re: Understanding Archetypes-The Mother Archetype

    An example of the Mother archetype as shown in a dream from Jan 1996 titled Gold Light and Rabbit Girl...

    I walk into the library (at home). I sit at a desk facing a window. I’m reading a book and watching it snow. The snow floats down soft and dreamy, the gold light baths the room shining out into the night. I see a cute, light brown bunny, slowly hopping along. I sit very still so I won’t scare it. The window runs from floor to ceiling, with panes like a greenhouse. The bunny looks inside, looking at me as if trying to decide if I’m asleep or awake. I sit very still and close my eyes. I peek through barely open eyelids, watching. The bunny changes to a young girl. Dark, long black hair, wearing a thin dress with no coat. She reaches through the glass with both hands to get my book. I open my eyes and hold her hands in mine. I pull her through the glass and hug her. We talk about the book for a moment. I ask if she’s hungry. She replies yes. I tell her I’ll make breakfast, scrambled eggs, sausage and toast. Would she like that? Yes! I lay her down on the recliner to wait. I make her breakfast. We eat breakfast.

    This dream also has deep spiritual meaning for me. I woke from the dream with a deep peace, as though held by a divine presence, the gold light.

    Kind regards,

    Re: Understanding Archetypes-The Mother Archetype

    Sounds like a wonderful dream, Kathy.

    The mother/goddess archetype is a wonderful one to experience - on the benevolent side!
    The dream, posted a while back, where a archetypal, goddess type female archetype, shows me rolling green hills and asks me to take care of them and to 'look after nature', was one of the most peaceful, relevant, calm and happy dreams I have ever had.
