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.

    Small boy

    This is a dream I have had about 5 times during the last couple of weeks. I meet a little boy when I'm out. Sometimes I'm with my family and sometimes I'm alone. The boiy is probably about 6 or 7. He's a lovely boy, gentle but with a little sense of wickedness about him that is not harmful. I take a liking to him and he shows me what he is doing - usually playing with some toy or other or he shows me card tricks etc. etc. I have a feeling of overall warmth and happiness when I'm with him and when I wake up it lasts for about an hour. The last dream I had was slightly different in that I was out with my husband in a large van. He stopped the van and got out and I was sitting in the back. When I opened the doors a boy got in the back with me and was telling me that he likes making greetings cards (a hobby of mine when I'm awake). He was older than the other boys in the dreams I have had - about 14/15. I told him that I liked making cards too and sat and chatted to him. Again, the same feeling of contentment and happiness - as if I didn't have a care in the world. When my husbhand came back he was angry because I was talking to this lad but I didn't want to leave him as I was enjoying sharing this hobby with him. The emotions I feel when I have these dreams I do not normally feel (as strongly) when I'm awake. I am so happy. These dreams I have had recently. I did have them some time ago but they stopped.

    Re: Small boy

    Hi Sandra

    It is significant to note that recurring dreams with similar themes are really important.

    My guess is that these boys represent an aspect of you when you were their age...the dream is working out something that didn't get processed and integrated before, bring it up to your consciousness so you can integrate the engery consciously...especially if it was a developmental stage that was delayed because of other priorities or other reasons that sometimes happen in life.

    Think about when you were the age of the boy....6/7 and again at 14/15/.....what comes to mind?

    Your dream husband may represent several aspects of either you or your life, masculine energy, your own or that in the society around you....perhaps your own inner masculine, your husband in real life, or your husband as your unconscious relates to him, or even other masculine energies or patriarchy.

    In the dream he seems flat out angry that you are taking to this boy. This is an important detail to consider. Why would that be. Why is it threatening for this masculine part of you that you (your dream ego/consciousness) would make contact with this other younger, masculine energy inside you......

    hope this helps,

    Re: Small boy

    A puzzling dream to say the least. Probably why no one has taken on the task to interpret it. I will offer a few suggestions but will refrain from a final interpretation until I have the time needed to analyze the dream thoroughly {have a full day of slaying dragons}. I will have much more time in the morning {Saturday}.

    The two things, perhaps three that stand out about this dream is of course the boy {which seems to be a developing masculine aspect}, the contentment and happiness within the dream which seems to go with the 'cards', and the anger of your husband in the dream. The part about your husband could represent either another masculine aspect {already developed} or possibly your true husband. Anger can be see as a developed masculine aspect. Is there any such reactions from your husband in your waking life?

    The boy in your dream is getting older which may suggest this aspect of your life is either developing or getting older. Are there any masculine associations you can think of that fit with your hobby of making greeting cards?

    Let me ponder the evidence {a sleuth looking for a clue} and get back to you. If you have any thoughts to the above please let me know. If any other contributors want to chime in, hey, I am always open to other's insights.

    Re: Small boy

    Dear May,Firstly, let me apologise for taking so long to reply. I had flu and then my computer was down for a while.

    I think you've hit on something about the age of the little boy. I've been thinking about this a lot, because usually the boy is so lovely and I'm so happy in his company. There were a number of us kids in the family and I was the eldest. By the time I was 10 I felt very responsible for my siblings, and I've often felt that I missed out on childhood and doing the things kids do, so this little boycould be symbolising that and the fact that I feel at ease with him could be the feeling that a small child has when they are playing.

    The other part about my masculine side and my husband's anger at this seems appropriate too. I have been aware for sometime that I have certain masculine traits. In the past I have viewed these as something that is wrong with me and I've refused to acknowledge them only by way of "being neurotic". Of late I have been investigating these things and am now more at ease with them. When I was growing up I admired my father so much and always wanted to be like him. Whether these traits came from that time I don't know. My husband and I frequently ahve rows over these things, especially when I read maps better than him and he refuses to acknowledge it!

    Once again, so sorry for the delay. Thanks for your reply.

    Re: Small boy

    Dear Gerard,

    So sorry have taken so long to reply. I really do value your dream interpretations. Firstly had flu and then the computer was down.

    I have replied to May so I won't go over it all again. I think the masculine traits are very important. I feel out of step with other women sometimes. I recently did the Baron-Cohen empathy test etc. and I scored very highly for "male brain". As I was telling May, I always thought there was "something wrong with me" and that these things were part of some mental illness I had. But of late, I have become more and more accepting of them and feel more confident.

    I love the dreams with the little boys because I am so happy. May made the point that it might be taking me back tosome time in my life when I was a child. I think that might be the case. Children are so carefree.

    Thanks again

    All the best
