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.

    singing

    Cant remember all of the dream, but can remember teaching a class a singing lesson. I was using a CD from a band called 'star sailor' and it was all very angelic, calm, lovely atmosphere etc
    I remember looking next door and seeing the head of the school. But it wasn't the head teacher I work with in real life, it was a male head - I think symbolising the one that has just left, although I don't think it was actually him?

    Re: singing

    Claire,
    Singing is often symbolic of self expression. Are you needing to teach yourself to be better at expressing yourself? Singing is also a creative aspect. Perhaps the lesson has to do with that aspect.

    The male head. Even if were the former head of the school {your inner school}, in your dream he is most likely representing your animus. Singing and creativity are feminine aspects. Often it is the masculine that prevents us from fully realizing/utilizing these feminine aspects.

    Re: singing

    I agree Gerard, but do you think, in my case, rather than the animus hindering creativity, this dream could be suggesting that I utilise the male side a little more? My life is overwhelming feminine on one hand, ie with singing - I sing a lot, in the car, at different times etc an enjoy teaching music too, my religious or spiritual beliefs tend to be along the lines of feminine/faery/nature trends, I am sometimes feminine to an extreme, BUT, on the other hand am quite practical, garden/build things on my own/lay gravel drives/shift rubble even - basically do what needs to be done to get things done, both in life and on a personal level with my new house.
    I was also listening to an interesting discussion the other day about sexuality, where there is supposed to be a kind of range from femininity to masculinity that ranges from 'alpha male' right through to kind of ultra feminine deer-like femininity. I often think, I'm often 'hiding' at the feminine deer-like end lol - probably not - but thats the self-perception, so ( to get to the point!) from the dream, this may be a reminder to use my masculinity more?
    Not sure - bit more confused now lol

    Re: singing

    Claire,
    If it fits that way, yes, it could represent that need. I often will view a dream and see a relationship with the anima or animus but the exact relationship is not clear. That is where the dreamer must determine how it fits. As I have stated previously, if the dreamer will work with interpreter most all dreams can be understood. I can read around the periphery of a dream but it is the dreamer that knows the personal relationship of the symbols. When it fits then the interpretation is most likely correct.

    Re: singing

    Have just had a difficult conversation with my real head at the school I work at.
    I think you are right Gerard, that it's to do with self-expression and after listening to that cd mentioned, the day before, which is maybe as I was subconciously thinking about the CD after writing the entry here, but there are issues about being assertive emough maybe at work, and the fear of being bullied at work again, or things going wrong.
