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.

    driving blind

    Hi guys,
    well here goes, this dream is re-occuring.
    I all of a sudden find myself behind the wheel of a car driving and it feels like my eyes are glued shut...no matter how hard i try i cant pry them open...i keep driving but dont hit anything...it gives me a feeling of panic, but after a bit i get the sensation i must know the road so well that i know it off by heart...but i still feel panicked like i should be hitting something like other cars on the road as i cant see were im going....during this whole time im trying my hardest to pry my eyes open to the point it feels like ive entered the conscious (no longer dreaming im driving but knowing im asleep) and still fighting to open my eyes, I even try pulling them open with my fingers in this dream like state (in the dream not physicaly)....it gets to the point it feels like im fighting my body to open my eyes so i can wake up but my body doesnt want to wake up so puts up a huge fight.
    I do get to open my eyes in the end but this is to the awake state no longer asleep....im left with a very groggy state and just want to go back to sleep as i feel like i got no sleep at all.

    Re: driving blind

    hi,
    the road and vehicle would suggest the journey you are undertaking,it may mean the whole journey of your life,or a particular aspect of it,a present situation you are undertaking or about to undertake,
    perhaps the results of which you feel anxious about,
    it is recurring as it will represent an issue that you need to become aware of,
    bring it into consciouisness,
    look for the parralells in waking life,
    what is it you are finding hard to open your eyes to,
    is there something you are finding hard to accept,

    there could be another way of looking at this dream,
    the ego thinks its running the show,but it is not,
    and is part of a greater awareness,surrendering to this unconscious aspect,is scary,as you have to relinquish conscious control ,
    the journey ended safely,you did not come to harm,
    if it does means this aspect,then i would take it as a compensatory dream to correct your conscious attitude,
    you may not feel you can trust somthing,this dream is telling you ,you can.
    hope this starts the ball rolling.
    as joseph campbell said,the way is thoroughly known,


    your soul knows best,

    Re: driving blind

    Thank You Steve
    you do make scence..i am going through a transformation of my life and have not been looking at all aspects with my eyes fully open...and I have been doing a lot of work with my subconscious knowing that that is were most of the retraining needs to be done in order for me to see my reality (conscious state)differently. I guess I have not put full trust in my subconscious (even through as we know it does know better) through fear, and this dream is trying to tell me to trust what i cant see as no harm comes to me...
    It will be interesting if i have this dream again and I dont fight to see were I am going and put full trust that my journey is guided instead of waking myself up from trying to open my eyes...

    Re: driving blind

    Hi Bec and Steve,

    I totally agree with everything that Steve wrote for your dream Bec, just want to give my two cents here.

    For me, if I'm having this dream recurringly, and I'm driving a car without seeing, I would wonder if there is some conscious and important aspect of my life that I am simply blind too, and the fact that the dream is recurring would tell me I am in danger. The fact also that the dream ends only when I wake up is telling me I had better wake up fast to this situation because it is as dangerous as driving blind.

    What does that mean? In your dream nothing bad seems to happen, but the emotions of driving blind are there. In real life if anyone is driving with their eyes shut they are bound to run into to someone or something and hurt them or themselves...there really is not two ways about it, don't you think so?

    So, if this was my dream I'd look at my daily life and try to see if there is a huge white elephant in the room that I didn't notice before....

    sorry for not being as optimistic as Steve.....

    let us know
