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.

    blinking technique!

    I had a form of lucid dream when I was younger, around the ages of 10 - 14. In the dream I would meet my mum, but then know she wasn't 'really' my mum and use lucid dreaming and 'blink' hard and move onto the next dream. This would then be going to speak to or see my mum and again, thinking "but that's not really her?" Again, I would blink and move onto the next stage of the dream. These were never nightmares, as I felt in control of 'moving on' with the blink technique any time there was anything I didn't like.
    Sometimes though they seemed so real/repetitive that I told my mum about them and asked her to kind of see if there was anything she wanted to tell me - about being adopted or anything! lol
    In reality, I am definately my mother's blood daughter - there is no mystery there.
    Was this more to do with the dream saying I could 'move on' in dreams any time there was something that was uncomfortable? or simply an enlarged ego/sense of empowerment - I rarely have lucid dreams as an adult now?

    Claire,
    Perhaps your dream wasn't so much a lucid dream as it was a wishful event. As children and adolescents our minds often will use imaginary techniques to help fantasize about something in life. At 10 to 14 you are undergoing life changes {the ones only girls get to have}. This may be the stages your dream was addressing. Being a male I can only imagine the psychological affects from going through such changes but there may have been emotions during that period of time where you wish you could just 'blink' and have it over with, going on to the next stage {I have a 12 year old grandson who is greatly anticipating becoming a teenager-going from one stage of life to the next-growing up}.

    As for your mom not being your mom in the dream. That may be part of the psychological changes you were going through, an unconscious realization that you will one day be the 'mom'. Feeling as if you have control in 'moving on' would fit with this since you do have some control over the some physical aspects of the changes {use of female devices to control the 'flow'}.
    Does this make sense in your case?

    Perhaps.... but it was more to do with identity and place within the family I think?

    Claire,
    Great. I'm glad you are able to understand the dream on your own. I don't tend to analyze my dreams unless I believe there is some other significance to them beyond the range of my ordinary psyche self. And when I do the relationship to my waking life is often clear. Archetypal dreams are not often an everyday, or every month occurrence. Plus they almost always carry enough psyche energy to realize their importance.

    But practice makes perfect and to be able to help others understand their dreams one must be able to interpret their own.
