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.

    My Collage

    Hi Everyone,

    This morning I dreamt that it was my friend's birthday, and that a group of us including her boyfriend were making a birthday present for her, putting candy in a bag, and I was drawing a card. At the bottom I signed it with a smiley face drawing that was actually the ancient symbol of the fertility goddess of Malta, which looks like an M. but the ends curve upwards and spiral and thats where the eyes are.

    We set aside some candy for us and were wondering how to divide it, am not sure but I think there were nine of us.


    Then I am in need of flowers, but they have to be picked off the tree in the right way.

    A tall man helps me, he picks a cluster of White flowers and gives them to me

    End of dream

    a background note. I made a collage right before I moved several years ago of what I hope to manifest in my dreams, my real life dreams and one of the things I cut out and pasted on my collage was a man offering flowers. In the collage they happen to be white. The way the tall man in my dream offered the flowers was like the picture in my collage.

    Thanks everyone,

    Re: My Collage

    May,
    Can you give the definition of 'collage'? I know it has meaning in the world of art and music but in the European world it may have a different application.
    {remember we Americans are a bit behind Europeans in many aspects of the natural psyche}.

    And can the candy and drawing be related to your collage? The number nine is striking but not so much when associated with the Goddess.

    Re: My Collage

    Hi Gerarld,

    I think there are probably many meanings to the word, but for me, my art teachers in America would have us cut out magazine pictures in a theme and glue them on paper.

    I made one in graduate school of the dreams I hope to manifest, and actually I just cut out pictures that I liked.

    What I ended up with was a beautiful photo-montage image of some of my deepest hopes and longings and maybe things that were unconscious that I wasn't aware of.

    On the left hand top corner is a key on top of a page of poetry, and next to that is a large orange butterfly and a small humingbird. Below the key is a bride lying on a tree in a very natural environment. Next to her is a picture of a man walking with a camel with the Pyramids of Egypt behind him, and the bride has trees covering parts of her body. Off to the right is a man's hands holding a bouquet of white flowers, and some nature scenes of greenery to the right. I laminanated it and cut out a few words: Live, Love, Laugh and they are on the hem of the bride's dress.

    Its really lovely and the symbology is significant. There isn't any candy.

    Hope this helps clarify things.

    Thanks Jerry,
