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.

    Rescued kitten

    Hi All - I would really appreciate some help on this one ,,, I had three dreams over the night - it is the swallowed cat part that I would like help with.

    * I have gone into a room, where an animal ? dog is lying down. He is resting, but I am not sure why ,,, he is not himself and I don't know why; I am there to talk to him and find out / understand. I come down to his level.

    There is a window behind and a small cat / kitten is trying to get in. The window has vertical bars on it so the cat cannot get in. It is getting annoyed -> angry. I get up (leave the dog) to try and placate / calm the kitten. It tries to scratch me ,,,this happens a number of times and she will not be settled. (The kitten is a she ,,,)

    In order to try and settle her, and knowing that she / the kitten is angry because she is outside / being excluded I let her in. Hoping that she will settle.
    The dog reacts so quickly I don't see it ,,, the cat is gone - he has swallowed the kitten. I don't know what happened between them.
    I know I must act quiclky.
    I try to prise open the dogs mouth however it is like a cat's mouth - small and delicate, with sharp teeth. I am afraid of either cutting my fingers or breaking its jaw. My attempts to open its mouth are futile - I cannot get its mouth open.
    If I am going to save the cat I wil have to do it the same way I would if it were a dogs mouth - and use my full force.

    I get the mouth open and I can see the cats head - it looks like the head of a baby ,,, the cat is expelled out ,,, much like a baby is born ,, head first.

    the cat was mostly black. The dog was brown I think.
    In Chinese astrology I am a dog

    Many thanks

    Re: Rescued kitten

    Justin,
    Is there the possibility that this dream is focusing on the masculine aspect consuming the feminine? If the Chinese astrology is correct, you being the dog, then perhaps this masculine aspect is referring to the social duty aspect. The cat would represent the inner qualities, the hero path. You may need to use the full 'force' to rescue this 'renewed' aspect. Perhaps you are having to put too much energies into the social being and are not able to fully concentrate on the inner Self {I know that feeling}.

    Your thoughts?

    Hi Gerard

    this makes sense. Although rather than social duty I think it is my feelings of duty or what I 'should do' ,,, the dragon of the I shoulds ,,, this is a big one for me. Letting go of what I thought / think I should be doing ,,, looking for an easier way perhaps ,,, an easier way to let go of my ego's attachment.

    I can relate to needing to use my full force / the full force of my being to rescue the situation ,,, keep the dream alive ,,, ugh

    many thanks

    Re: Rescued kitten

    Justin,

    cats and dogs are instincts that often show up in dreams when they are not (the instincts) fully differentiated. Cats being very independants and dogs, on the the opposites are "completely" faithful, would do anything for their owners.
    and you're saying the dog isn't his usual self. It seems like the dog, the faithful one, the "I should" and "I ought to" part of you is pretty quick to react to the "threat" of the nascent feminine (ketty) coming in to his own otherwise rather safe (bars at the window) environment.
    Still you're streng determination allows a new birth in the end.

    Not sure I've added anything more than what gerard said, but used different wording...

    Hi Clairem

    Similar sentiments perhaps and as you say, different approach - thanks for your thoughts.
    Your reference to dogs being the faithful one, 'the opposites'

    I have been thinking of this dream, and am still working with its images. It certainly lets me know that I need/ed all my strength to reach the kitten from the dogs mouth.

    thanks
