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.

    A really wierd dream that I had nearly a year ago but can not forget.

    I sometimes have very vivid dreams and I usually can remember the main points the next day but this particular dream has stuck with me for nearly a year. In the dream I was with a small group of people (although I only knew a few in real life felt like all were my friends) and we were in some sort of outside auditorim and then went to eat at a table. One of the friends was (and I know this sounds strange) a talking lobster but it didnt feel strange or funny in the dream it just felt normal. When we went to eat we (and I cant rem why) we ended up eating the lobster who was supposed to be my friend.
    I woke up and was absoulty horrified with myself and what I had done. This has really troubled me for all this time and I really need a meaning to this dream as it seems so real.

    Helena,
    I'll give more inspection to your dream in the morning {Saturday}. Have had a busy day and my intuitive self lacks clarity at the moment. I want to give my best interpretation. One of the other contributors may wish to comment.

    Helena,
    My sense is that the people in the auditorium, some you recognize and some you don't, represents your total self and aspects about yourself {some you recognize, others you don't}. The talking lobster may represent a natural aspect you possess but you may not be utilizing as you should or could. This aspect has been valuable in the past {friend} but in this instance you choose to hold it in {eat} instead of utilizing it.

    I believe we are getting into aspects of your personal life that the dream does not completely explain. Can you provide other information about how you felt about the dream or where in your life the above may fit? Consider these possible meanings of a lobster in dreams:

    a lobster can represent strength and persistence. You will hold your own ground and overcome minor difficulties and problems. Dreaming that you are Seeing or eating lobster indicates that you will regain your confidence

    Strange you should say about I will regain confidence because not long after that dream I decided to go back to college and the go to Uni - this I am now in the process of doing and am at college and have applied for Uni and yes have regained confidence. At the time I had this dream I was going through a time of self realisation and working out who I was. As I said I often have vivid dreams but I just felt so disgusted with myself when I woke up because this lobster was ment to be a friend and I enjoyed eating him! The only things I can think of being the natural aspect I am holding in is either music as this was very important in my past but I gave up on it or (and sorry is this sounds odd!) but I have been told that I have a natural gift to sense things/know things I suppose like a 3rd eye but I have never learned more about this and keep ignoring it. Does this make sense, does it help? Again thank you for helping me.

    Helena,
    Great progress and you are doing all the work. I hoped to spark a reaction and you came through with what could be the answer to the dream. The possible connection to the lobster {this lobster was ment to be a friend and I enjoyed eating him} could have to do with your creative Self. Lobsters do come from the ocean which often is symbolic of the deep unconscious. Within the deep unconscious is to be found the true identity, the true Self which in Jungian thinking is creative and spiritual.

    A note. You stated that this dream began a year ago. Does that time frame have any significance in your life?

    The third eye. Seeing beyond what is visible. You have come to right place if you wish to enhance your 3rd eye. We at the Forum hope to help you learn to utilize those natural gifts. Anyone with an intuitive 'eye' will do well when working with dreams. And see things within yourself that may not have been visible before you began your 'inner' journey. This is why I call it the psychology of dreams. We are working with the psyche
