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.

    Rage at a school

    Walking my girl in a school building to meet with some of her alumni. Strange since she never went to school. Walk into a room with rows of desks and women. Tell her I'll wait in the hall for her. I'm in the hall and I look to the right and see a pallet on a paller jack full of different kinds of liquor. I walk over and decide to help myself. Two men in black of a larger stature walk over to me. They start drinking and we are having a good time and laughing. I don't know what they say but I suddenly become totally pissed and enraged. I realize their smiles have ill intentions. I look at the fifth of whiskey in my hand and spin it in my hand and bash the bottom of it off. I twist and grab the one closest to me and stab him 3 or 4 times in the stomach then once in the throat and with the remainder of glass that wasn't broke off already I grab the top of his head and ram the glass into the bottom of his jaw. I throw him to the side. His partner tells and comes towards me. I grab both his ears like handles and pull him towards me. Then I bite his entire nose off and blood sprays everywhere as I spit it back at him. Then I was worred about the cops. Ran to get my girl and woke up when I left the building.

    Re: Rage at a school


    Dream characters often portray aspects and traits of the dreamer. Dreams often reflect back waking experiences although in a different perspective than the waking, or conscious, mind. This would be a view of waking experience without the ego/persona influences. Ego/persona is the learned aspect of personality, conditioning from birth by family, friends, fit in. Jung refers to the ego/persona as a mask. Because it does not represent or function as you truly are, the inner Self, but is comprised of and responsive to external conditioning.

    As always, dream interpretation is not exact. dream symbols hold several meanings, including personal associations. The following interpretation may or may not be close. Only you will know.

    The dream title could point to the trait being rage, an extreme and uncontrolled form of anger. The dream itself could describe a new view or perspective ready to or is coming to consciousness. The view could be of a more feminine perspective or that of your gf which you are now internalizing.

    The negative aspect of allowing anger to become rage could be due to lack of control. Of which the unconscious driver could be inhibition or guilt left from a long past life experience. Right normally indicates masculine, looking right could point to a negagive masculine influence in your early life.

    The two men in black with ill intent could symbolize the Shadow (read about The Shadow to the left), and not owning the trait, (alien as a reference to the movie Men in Black).

    This Shadow aspect engages in or thinks about senseless violence perhaps when threatened as a defensive response even moreso when indulging in liquor (here liquor could be literal and symbolic). Stabbing the abdomen may represent intolerable and stabbing the jaw an inability to discuss this issue, and perhaps? the traumatic experience that now leads to uncontrolled rage. Senseless could be the feminine aspect view. Note in the dream four symbols correlating to sense and sense organs (mouth/jaw, brain/top of head, nose and ears), and that this is the target of violence in the dream.

    Dream endings often offer clues to positive resolution of external and inner conflict. 'worried about the cops' could show external conflict, like this being a source of conflict with your gf and eventually the legal authorities, and internal conflict as the inner authority. Your inner authority may think the time is right to bring this to consciuos attention for positive resolution. That being shown by learning to integrate and rely upon a feminine trait to bring balance.

    Again, could be close or not at all. Look to the days prior to your dream for clues to meaning. And look for the Aha! feeling. Dreamers always have the meaning, it's just unrecognized until the lanquage of symbols becomes clearer Sometimes it helps to get outside perspective or possible context.

    Please respond with your thoughts on the dream and interpretation. This is a learning Forum. Your participation is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Kathy. I've had a little time off the past couple of days but the number of posts began to overwhelm me. Good to have all the visitors but hard to get them all covered.
