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.

    General question

    I get about 9 hours sleep everynight and dream very vivid, colorful dreams that I remember every day. What does this indicate about me as a person?

    Thanks,

    Hi Joe

    THe obvious answer is that - you have 9 hours sleep a night and have colourful vivid dreams ,,, it is like having colour television and it is playing ,,, are the programs just playing in the background, or are you interested in what is playing?
    Another question might be - do you think your vivid, colourful dreams are there for any reason ,,, have you sat down to look and see what their content is ,,, otherwise it is just having colourful vivid dreams ,,,

    your thoughts?

    Re: General question

    I am always highly involved in my dreams just like normal social interaction. Some dreams are simple like a hug and kiss. Some are very complex involving many people doing some task. Some are individual where I am building something or traveling to someplace. Some dreams are confrontational. The people involved are usually people I do not know however, I do have a few dreams of people I know.

    Re: Re: General question

    Hi Joe

    We get to choose what we think dreams are for / about ,,, and indeed what meaning they have. My take on this is rather than being told dreams mean this or that, to inquire into the dreams - this means that some work is necessary, otherwise it is like listening to people who speak a language we don't understand - it sounds like jibberish and we can glean no meaing from it.

    So the language of dreams ,,, one way would be to see dreams as reflecting our life back at us - with a different slant perhaps, using different characters so that we get the opportunity to view what is happening in our lives less personally ,,,
    Another way to view dreams is like looking through a window or clear body of water ,,, and seeing what is going on there

    Look for 'different characters same themes' ,,, if you want to see if your dreams correlate to what is going on for you.

    Oh and another thing - try sitting down and write out the dream ,,, just as it was in the dream ,,, and as you get into the writing, watch for those 'ah ha' moments; or re-read what you have written and see if it is a story that sounds familiar; there are many ways

    If you are having vivid dreams and don't know what they mean,,, it is like having a great colour TV set and not having the sound on, or not really watching it ,,, it is just something you have ,,, to understand the dreams beings meaning and then you will have great colourful vivid meaningful experiences ,,, and, I would guess, a life to match

    Happy viewing

    Re: General question

    Justin,

    I would still like your opinion on what having vivid dreams and remembering them everyday means. My understanding is that most people do not dream everynight much less remember dreams. So that would make me unusual. Comments?

    Re: Re: General question

    Hi Joe

    I have a tendency to split hairs and part of what I am trying to convey is the notion that 'meaning' is a derived from personal experience.
    Suggesting, in a round about way, that you learn the language of your dreams so that you can expeience for yourself, what they 'mean'.

    Perhaps I am taking this stance because, given that you have vivid dreams I guess that you (already) have close access to the meanings of your dreams. They are vivid and memorable because there something there that is wanting to come through, there is something(s) there that your greater self (,,, another topic,,,) is ready to let you know about, and that you are ready, able and perhaps needing to hear about, learn about.

    If you look at this from the position of limited ego "I ahve these great really vivid colourful dreams ,,, wow they are a trip and other people don't have that do they ,,," then I think the point has been missed. It is like having a great sports car and either not knowing how to drive it or,,, being given a grat sports car and using it to drive around in to show how great you are ,,, when it is something given to you and you don't know tha value of.
    Where do you stand on this ,,,

    Are you different to 'most people' ? ,,, no I don't think so - Everyone has dreams at sifferent times in their lives that they can recall and have blown them away ,,, why do some people continue to have them ?? perhaps because they listen to them, learn from them and so a sort of internal dialogue is set up. Contrary to this - if we / for those who have periods of dream and don't listen / learn ,,, the dreams seem to go away ,,, however the issues that the dreams were addressing remain suppressed ,,, and come out in i) 'slips of the toungue' ii) 'accidental behaviors iii) mood swings ,,, the list goes on.

    Why not post a dream or two and see where that leads ,,,

    All the best
