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.

    struggling dream

    I dreamed that there were huge, big fat fish after me and I had to keep fighting them off/pushing them away but they didn't let up. All night long, it seemed, I was fighting them off in the house. Shaped like seals but were fish??

    Re: struggling dream

    Delsey,
    Do you recall any emotions (positive or negative like frustration, fear, happiness, etc) during the dream?

    The dream may describe waking conflicts that have continued for some time. Would the word relentless describe the fish? What in your life have you experienced or battled for a very long time that can not be resolved?

    If you would respond perhaps we can take another look and get closer to the meaning.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy

    Delsey - to be a little more specific...a person or persons that want you to do something you don't want to do? And if so, does whatever they want go against your conscious, feelings, ethics, etc. Thanks! Kathy

    Re: struggling dream

    Delsey,
    Thanks for your response. It sounds as if you're stressed out from demands others place on you. Joseph Campbell speaks alot about this, and about living your own life.

    These demands on our time and lives are difficult. Sometimes people don't like to receive a No. One MUST do and live what one feels is best for them, no explanations or reasons.

    The conflict appears to be in what/how much is asked of you and perhaps? an ingrained or learned attitude of responsibility or duty to others. This could be a source of internal conflict. While helping others is an admirable aspect, too much leaves nothing for the Self. While I firmly believe serving others is an aspect of living the gentle life, BALANCE is necessary so we must too serve the Self.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy
