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.

    rats and dog

    I will post again.
    My husband kept dreaming of our dog that we had to put to sleep. Two nights ago he dreamt that our dog was talking to him in a humam voice saying that he (dog ) was sick on the inside, he also dreamt that rats was running under the cupboard in our kitchen. I feel dreams like this is not good news and I'm concern, Please let me know what you think
    Thank you

    Re: rats and dog

    The only real concern I would have is what it is that
    may be causing your husband doubt, or guilt in some aspect of his life. The dog would represent these instinctive drives, and it is his unconscious speaking to him. Whatever it is it may be gnawing away at him {rats in cupboard}.

    This alone shouldn't be a real cause for concern. It could represent everyday experiences. But If you are intuitively sensing something, that might need consideration.

    Re: rats and dog

    Dogs may also symbolise a friend, and the dog would appear in the form of your old dog, as your husband has an attachment to this pet. I agree with Gerard, that this is an anxiety dream of your husband's; rats often symbolise irritating, but, small problems that need to be faced. The dog is acting as a friend symbol, gently reminding your husband to take action with these problems, before they do, in fact, 'make him sick inside' with worry. Just need to work out what is causng the anxiety now and act upon it.
    good luck x
