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.

    my head in a jar

    UMMM,my head was in a old water cooler glass jar,you know like the ones we have now but are plastic,and everyone was around talking to me w/this see through glass that covered me down to my neck?????

    Then the dream switches to my business partner and I,are somewhere probably bying from a show.We are at a hotel together and there is a bright green snake,small in size but ferocious little sucker.This snake would just jump out of anyware tring to bite.At times everyone else could get away from this snake,but myself as if this snake had it out for me.This snake also slept with me and bit me in my lower back,I remember looking at the bite marks allthough it did not hurt and i did not get sick he still scared me.This snake also kept switching colors on me .First beautiful bright bright floresent green and then hed be black so you didnt know what you were looking for,My business partner would just pick the snake up and put it back where ever??? and then something about St.Jean Washington what ever that means I dont know if it even exsists... I have a couple of ideas about this dream?? I was wondering if this has something to do with a business partner????


    What are your thoughts if any???

    Re: my head in a jar

    I think after reflecting on this dream today,The first part of the dream would indicate a reflection ofmy self.The people reresent an aspect of my self iam not yet aware of.???? I do know the snake is hidden fears,and being bitten on the back also represents hidden aspects of my personality.the bright green color would indicate growth,or new development with personality.The black color would mean that something i have repressed is urgantly tring to come to light (concious),and take up with my awake life.does this sound correct???

    angelique,
    I'll take a better look at your dream in the morning. But you do seem to be on the right track. We will want to examine the snake symbolism to understand its meaning. Snakes seem to be in style as of recent.

    angelique,
    I sense the see through jar over your head is suggesting you are mentally seeing things that you probably haven't noticed about yourself previously. That is what dreams do, shows us our true selves.

    I get the impression your green snake is something or someone who normally doesn't affect you but there is one aspect about yourself that it does. Green and small suggests this is something recent and could help with your growth. But the aspect that is affected, and the answres you are seeking, has to endure changes {changing colors}.

    In your dream you mention business partner twice. Most likely this is an aspect of yourself. One part of you understands the snake and merely places it back where it belongs {this could be repression}.

    You seem to have figured this dream out. Definite signs of an intuitive mind.

    Re: my head in a jar

    I agree with Gerard's interpretation Angelique, also, however, have you 'intellectualised' your approach to your life recently? What I mean by this is sometimes we forget to use our intellect with our emotions together, as a a whole approach to life. A head in a jar might also be a symbol for 'cutting' off from your heart and your emotions. Do you have to examine your feelings in any area of your life, rather than adopting a merely 'head strong' approach?

    Re: my head in a jar

    Clair,This was something that I was going to touch on when tring to interpet this dream.You hit the nail on the head.I also thought this too.I all my Life have been extremely empathic,sometimes its way too much for me.It seems to be hard for me to connect these two things.I do get to the point that i shut off,the emotional side,only becouse I pick up what does not belong to me at the grocery store,at my business,ect...Connecting these two (my heart and my Head) Might be one of the most difficult tasks for me,But its a work in progress.My hope is that finding this web sight along with other endevors,helps me to move into this place...Meditation is getting deeper,as with my dreams,and i am tring to connect all the dots.

    Re: my head in a jar

    Angelique - some people are 'sensitive' and as well as their own emotions, sometimes pick up 'left overs' from others vibes and emotions, especially extreme ones.
    The way to deal with this is to listen to your true self more so you become acute at differentiating what is your own emotion and what has been 'residued' from others. Empathy is a gift and a useful, but it can be irritating and hurtful, if not monitored succesfully.
    It should be a skill and not interfere with your own life experiences and emotions.
