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.

    deceased father enclosed in iron bars

    In this dream i see my father (who has been dead for 26 years) laying on a hospital bed asleep - but it was inside a house, not the hospital. My mother, who is alive, was walking to another room changing her earrings. I then asked her what was going on. When I turned around to look at my father again, his bed was surrounded by bars all the way up to the ceiling, encarcerating him and there was plexiglass on the headboard. He stood up and was really angry when he saw the bars. I keep yelling to my mother "what's going on why are you doing this? My mother looked as she was getting ready to leave permanently. My mother replied "there's nothing i can do, it's gonna get worse". My father extended his hands outside the bars and tried to strangle a friend of the family who was sitting on the edge of another bed. The man said to my father "I have nothing to do with this, leave me out of it". My father backed off, turned around and leaned against the bars with his arms crossed thinking of how he was going to get out. After a bit he started to push with his hands around the edges of the plexiglass. When he got over to the right hand side, the glass buckled as if he had found a place where he could get out from - but then i woke up.

    I'm a 50 year old female and my father died at 46 from lung cancer 26 years ago. The family friend in the dream dated my mother last year but it didn't last.

    Re: deceased father enclosed in iron bars

    Hi Gina

    This dream likely has multiple meanings / possible interpretations - a bit like a tree's branches ,,, and I think some considerable work and honesty to yourself will be necessary to really get into the different meanings.

    In broad terms, one branch of meaning relates to how things were in your family, your upbringing etc. - this may relate to your father being underspoken; and the other relates to how things are within you - within you psyche.

    Perhaps I can offer some starting point for your reflections:-

    "it's going to get worse" ,,, do you think this is a threat by the feminine or a prediction that if nothing is done to free 'your father' (the masculine beliefs you hold) that things will get worse? Look to the tone or feeling of the voice.

    In this dream there is an imbalance between the masculine and feminine energies ,,, and that suggests in your life, in you ?? The masculine is locked up ,,, is he really sick ?

    Your mother (aspects of the feminine that you learned form you mother?) leaves - Is it that there is nothing for her (the Female energy ,,, your female side) for her to do ? or nothing that she (your female energy) can do ,,, because the action needs to be taken by the masculine. If the masculine cannot express itself it is bound to get angry; if the creativity is expressed it will try to get out somewhere / some way.

    The plexiglass ,, reminds me of the 'glass ceiling' - do you find yourself in such a situation ,, that you are trying / struggling to find a way around ,,, through your (self-) expression perhaps ??

    All the best
