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.

    Dream of my eldest grandchild

    I dreamt that myself and my grandaughter who is 8 were walking, talking and joking down a very long corridoor,like a hotel corridorr, rather shabby. I turned as I heard a noise and in the split second my grandaughter disappeared, I looked in various rooms, which were just bathrooms with showers, not atucal hotel rooms, first slowly then frantically as I could not find her. I was getting extremely worried and chasing down the corridoor when 2 men came out of one room adjusting their clothes, but with a look on their faces that I knew they had hurt my grandaughter. I went into the room where they had come out of and my grandaugher was lying on her back on the shower floor, she had her clothes on but on the look on her face I knew she had been hurt, she looked at me and I hugged her but all the time in my mind I was thinking the police will need to examine her. It has made me feel devistated.

    Re: Dream of my eldest grandchild

    Susan,
    My take on your dream is it is combining the natural fears we have with the safety of your granddaughter, and the possibility of some past childhood experience that remains with you to this day. I don't see where there is drastic damage from that past experience but it may have been one that left an impression on you, unconsciously {corridors or halls are often symbols of connecting the waking mind, or dreaming mind, to unconscious contents}. It may have involve an experience where you were hurt psychologically but not necessarily physically {although there is that possibility of actual physical trauma}. The shape of the cooridor {shabby} does suggest there were negative emotions connected this connection to yourself. And the disappearance of your granddaughter {she would symbolize you as a child} also suggests that some part of you has disappeared from its natural state. Whatever the experience was it is still 'cahsing' you which suggests it needs to be acknowledged.

    The reason I believe the dream is addressing psychological damage more so than physical damage is two statements in your dream. One is the 'look on their faces' which for me suggests the persona, your persona was hurt from this incident. The other was the scene in the shower, 'she had her clothes on'. This could indicate there was not any physical harm {as in a more direct statement of being harmed, she was naked}. Of course there are many possibilities to both statements and there could have been physical harm as well as emotional. I see the emotional but the physical is not as clear.

    I take it you are close to your granddaughter and do worry about her safety. This would be a stimulus for such a dream. But I also see the possibilities of your granddaughter representing yourself as a child. Often such inclusions of children do symbolize the dreamer as a child and very often the child is either the dreamer's child {grandchild} or some other child. Dreams speak in metaphors and the metaphors always apply to the dreamer. All we need to do is to figure which aspects of the dreamer's life best fits the metaphors. Of course that is not always an easy task.

    If you will provide your thoughts to my interpretation perhaps we can narrow the possibilities to the dream message. If something in my words fit your life you should be able to identify with those words. Also take a look back at your childhood, especially around the age of 8, and see if there was something there that may have be forgotten that would fit within this dream. As I stated earlier it may have been a relatively benign incident but it could have been something more serious.
