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.

    a new house

    I live in a new house. actually it's not mine, somebody gave it to me for free. I still own my old house. I don't know my way around. I have my first guests. It's a couple I like very much. I serve them food, but I still have to look for it and it takes me some time. My friends say, that must be very unconfortable not knowing where the food is. I answer, that's normal when you are new at a place. Then I find a few spots where some fire is burning and turn it off, thinking that's too dangerous, since I don't know the house yet well enough and it is very very big.
    Thanks, Iris

    Re: a new house

    iris,
    Houses are most often symbolic of the dreamer, the house is you. Or at least some aspect of the dreamer. Look at new events or experiences in your life and compare those to your dream. Is there something new in your life that you still don't know your way around? Food often represent emotional nourishment> are there aspects of your life where there is a need for such nourishment and you are at a loss to understand where to look for it? You probably are aware of this aspect of your life since it is 'normal' to be uncomfortable in such situations. And the fire. What fires are burning in your life that seem to pose a danger? You may need to explore more about this aspect of your life since there may be things that are unknown, and seemingly dangerous.

    Re: a new house

    Gerard,

    First thanks a lot for the interpretation.
    Now I understand the symbol of the house - it's the new me, since I'm going to start a new live, moving from US to Europe - not knowing at all what's expecting me there. Although I know deep inside that I have to do this change, I still cannot imagine my live over there. What is going to nourish me, since I'm giving up so many personal things right now. The fire is still unclear to me. Can it be connected to an illness I have, that I try to cure with a diet - the progress is very slow. Might there be the danger?
    Thanks, Iris

    Re: a new house

    iris,
    Very keen observation on the possible meaning of 'burning fire'. I recall Jung stating fire could represent a physical 'fever' as dream metaphor. So that is a real possibility in your dream.

    But there may be more to do the fire symbol.
    Fire can represent energies, psyche energies {kundalini}, emotional energies, that go to the core of who we are. You are having to give up so much of your old self to your new life, perhaps extinguishing certain positive aspects. Perhaps there is a fear those aspects will not fit with your new life, a reason you willingly give them up.

    As for the symbol of a house. From my years of experience with interpreting dreams, a house is metaphor for the dreamer. And that seems to be a constant in all dreams. Your old house, the new house, your waking life. It fits. From my experience it always does. And when we begin to understand the other metaphors and compare it the waking conscious life.....there it is!

    How your dream speaks to your new house, and how that new house is free, is fascinating it its metaphorical references {I'm reading something into it which may or may not be correct} . I believe if you give that part ' actually it's not mine, somebody gave it to me for free you will find a place where it fits. And it will be meaningful because it will represent your true feelings/emotions. That's what dreams do, reveal the true self.

    You mention diet. That is something I believe so important to good health. Especially as we age. Studies have shown that to be true. And I find the body responds positively as long as you stay dedicated to the routine. I pay attention to what I eat, giving special attention to saturated fat. The only medications I take is a natural fiber {most everyone should} and a one a day multivitamin. What we put into our bodies not only defines who we are but also how we look and feel.

    And when I do stray and eat something I shouldn't. My body let's me know... literally. But that's good because it is nature's way of 'telling' you what is good and what is not.

    Re: a new house

    Gerard,
    Everything you say makes much sense to me. It's very profound. May be after all I don't have to give up everything. It could be that I'm too hard on myself. Nobody is forcing me - I have to be more relaxed and integrate the new house very slowly.
    Thank you, Iris
