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.

    mother

    I lost my mother in Oct of 2006. Although the dreams are pleasant, I continue to dream of my mother. I wake up crying most of the time, because I realize when I wake that she is not here. My son has now started to have dreams. Valentine's Day was this past week. My mother always mailed my children a card. This was the first year that they did not get one, but he dreamed about a card from her that told him how much she loved him and his sister and how much she missed them. Am I crazy, or is my mom really talking to us?

    Re: mother

    hi ,
    dreams tend to compensate alot ,for things that are missing in our lives,
    the bond that you and your children had with your mother is broken on a physical level,
    and it is this bond that is being felt,
    if my life has given me one great gift it is this,
    anything is possible!,and is only limited by our narrow minds,
    it may be your mother is comunicating something,
    children especially,are more open to spiritual and psychic energies,as their minds havn't been clouded by the outer experiences of life,the thou shalt system,
    of course it will depend on your own personal beliefs,
    it is hard to let go,i have been their myself,
    but there is much to learn from these sort of dreams and at the very least ,they contain hope.
    i do not think that dreams delude, as carl jung said,the unconscious is not concerned at all about death,in fact in his studies with older folk,he found their dreams to carry symbols of continuance,
    which is very encouraging don't you think,
    hope this goes someway to helping you understand your experiences,
    regards steve,

    Re: mother

    Dear Chandra,

    In addition to what Steve says, I'd like to make another comment, only to open up from another perspective. But this is certainly not exclusive to Steve's comments.

    If you have received from your real mother a positive image of mothering, your inner mother (the figure inside you that allows you to mother yourself) would be positive, too. Your pleasant dreams may show you her image to tell you that you need to mother yourself.

    regards,

    Re: mother

    Hi Chandra

    I'm sure the other responses you got from our great forum contributors are excellent, I just wanted to comment about your son's and may be your dreams.

    Sure, dreams can be seen on several levels. For me, messages from a mother who passed away can be just as real as anything else, I wouldn't doubt that, but thats just me...and its consistent with what Jung taught.

    Then, your son is going through his own psychological development and his dream speaks of his relationship with you, and with his own inner mother and all the facets she holds for us....she can be positive or negative, the archetype or the personal mother or a personal complex. The dream is positive...things are OK.

    The same could apply to your dreams of your mom.

    Hope this helps....

    Best,
    May
    p.s. the psyche is the greatest healer of grief and your loss of your mother recently may also be why you and your son are having the dreams, perhaps to bring you messages from her, and also to heal from the loss...as well as the psychological and archetypal meanings I mentioned
