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.

    homosexual dreams & mother

    hello, you'll have been great in the past, and this dream i had just keeps making me think about it, so any thoughts are helpful.

    I dreamt that I was watching a video on a couch, and my mother was farther down on the same couch. It came to a part of the movie where there were two girls, kissing, being passionate. My mother stood up, and said "you can't watch this!" i said, "i'm 28, i enjoy watching it, i'd like to continue to watch it" she went up to the vcr, and took out the vcr tape. I tried to grab it from her so we were struggling over the tape. She got the tape and went to sit back down on the couch. A girl ( i do not know) came up to me at the couch, and lent over and tried to kiss me, and I wanted to kiss her, but I told her "not now, while my mother is here" as I knew she was already upset. The girl didn't really understand, and kept her advances, until I got her to understand that I couldn't do that while my mother was there, and that she didn't approve, etc.
    i don't get along very well with my mother. Is this trying to explain my injustices felt regarding our relationship? I feel like the power stuggle was a bigger part of the dream, and the homosexuality was moreso because it is taboo, and not an acceptable viewpoint (from my mother's beliefs).. I feel like there's info here, i'm just not seeing. anybody have any thoughts.
    This has been a really great forum/dreamwork site. I much appreciate its existence, and all the thoughtful answers given

    Re: homosexual dreams & mother

    justagirl,
    It does seem the dream is addressing those differences in your relationship with with your mother. Those differences may be due in part to the 'injustices' you feel in the relationship but probably are also confronting issues you perceive as more normal than your mother views sexuality {your mother is sitting further down the couch}. And in essence the dream could be addressing your own views on the subject {sexuality}.

    The girl didn't really understand, and kept her advances, until I got her to understand that I couldn't do that while my mother was there, and that she didn't approve, etc.

    In dreams this unknown girl is you, representing aspects about yourself that are not fully understood. The homosexuality {not knowing the full extent of these experiences, if any, in your life} may be addressing a desire or need to unify unresolved conflicts in your life, seeking balance. It may be a need to resolve conflicts with your mother or purely symbolic of resolving your own inner conflicts {perhaps your sexuality}. My impressions it could be both. At 28 you may feel your mother's influence, albeit psychological, still influences you and that may be a conflict within itself.

    I vaguely remember your last post {more a remembrance of your e-mail address}. If you could direct me to that post {did it also involve sexuality?} perhaps that dream can lend itself to understanding this dream. Also, if you feel comfortable speaking to your views and experiences on your sexuality, that may help also.

    Re: homosexual dreams & mother

    The last dreams I had reported before this both involved some sort of sexuality/intimacy/or child. The half stone face baby, and the other the get rich quick dream gone awry we were in lingerie. I think it may indeed be alluding to parts of myself conflicting. My sexual dreams are Usually female-female. I am bisexual. I think the conflict might have to do with being at peace with my own decisions. I feel one way, but know another person would feel such and such about my decision, and what decision to make, since I feel like i'm failing someone either way. Mother representing the "you should/shouldn't do this" Myself, & Alter Ego "this is what you want" Myself, hears the "you shouldn't do this" but then feels shamed, because it is something 'myself' wants, so child-like grabs what I want, because i think that's the only way i will get it. But still influenced by 'mother' still in conflict, because girl presents the 'want' to 'myself' and 'myself' rejects this, for still present obligation to meet 'mother/should/n't' needs. belief in need not strong enough to stand up to 'mother' when opportunity arises to meet need. out of guilt and need to please 'mother/expectiation' guilty for grabbing, wanting, and denying needs all at the same time. No balance between meeting others needs, and meeting my own in a way that is peaceful and not guilt inducing.
    Previous to this dream, before i went to sleep, I was journalling/meditating, and focusing on two problem knots in my back (that i think have repressed energy, or something) I was attempting to search for what was there, and I let myself go to a memory that may or maynot be real, involving a doll i owned, and my mother taking it away from me to punish me. and that she didn't have to take my doll away, that there were other less cruel things she couldn't have done to teach me, but didn't. I knew it hit something because I cried a short deep grief, and that night I dreamt more vividly and remembered more than i have for awhile. Then that night, the dream about sexuality (intimacy) etc from above. So I imagine i shoudl think about connecting these two.
