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 grail and the sword,restoring the forgotten archetype.

    for those who may be interested,
    something of interest i found with regards to the grail myth,
    the grail archetype itself ,seems to be the object, people are attracted to, this article explains the forgotten archetypes that surround the myth,that are just as important ,
    namely the sword excalibur,
    this all has reference to the individuation process,as it is from a jungian and campbellian perspective,
    www.johnadcox.com/swordandgrail.htm.
    i hope you find it helpful.
    regards steve

    Steve,
    The link you provided leads to a 'Page that can not be found'. Perhaps a mistake in the URL.

    The Grail King is one of my favorites. My own take on the grail is it represents the soul. Everyone is looking for something physical in the grail when all along it is spiritual.

    Hi Steve

    I have 'just discovered' the Grail myth - well rediscovered, and looking at it with new eyes ,,, what a myth !
    I picked up one of Robert Johnsons little books - The Fischer King + The Handless Maiden' - and from there 'The Return of King Arthur' by Diana Durham. and that lead me to 'The Grail Legend' by Jung + von Franz - but that is just too heafty for just now ,,,
    So I would appreciate a copy of the link you mentioned

    thanks

    Interesting too, to compare to new versions and theories about the 'chalice' in the grail being a symbol rather than a real object, such as in the 'Da Vinci Code' where the 'chalice' is the womb of Mary Magdalene, leading to the controversial views and discussions about whether Jesus had a family or not.
