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.

    Emotional Dream

    This dream was very emotional and happened just before I woke up. I have to give some history on it for it to make more sense so please bare with me.
    Two years ago a young guy in my church back in my hometown named Dionne, was caught being involved in a kidnapping. He was coerced by some older police officers of his unit and now is in a lifetime of trouble. He is taller than I am, darker, noiser than I am...not as good looking as I am LOL.

    When I was a teenager I was robbed while trying to retrieve my school notbook from a dry river. I was surrounded by 8 or so guys from a neighboring school at knife point then robbed and beaten.

    So in my dream I am at home with my mother and stepfather in their house. Dionne is staying there and his disposition is more like that of a child instead of the grown man he is today. I am fuming at him because I got robbed and he was a part of it (note in real life he had nothing to do with it) and here he is staying in what used to be in my room! I am just walking around like everything's okay until I get Dionne in my parent's room and then I lose it. I throw him on to their bed and I begin to slap him. I told him "you were there you little #^$% and you saw me get robbed and you didn't even say anything to help me, you just stood there and watched me get beat because you only wanted to fit in with your friends. How could you do that? And I began to punch him. "And you couldn't gather the courage to say something, how could you watch something like that happen and not say anything?" And I thought to myself how could you see someone getting beaten and robbed, that you knew and, who didn't do anything, and remain silent, how much of a coward could this boy really be?

    As I thought that thought, I picked him up from the bed like I would a 5 year old and he began to cry and I just said over and over again I forgive you. I felt my anger leave. Just vanish and it turned into compassion. Then I saw an image of him in the mirror, he looked like a 5 year old child with extremely long hair, and as I turned away my sister, stepfather and mother entered the room.

    Thanks for this service guys I appreciate all the help you give

    Re: Emotional Dream

    Jamel,
    This dream may be connected to your prior dream. Often dream characters represent the dreamer. They are you, you are them. Normally it's a specific trait of the character that your Psyche identifies with. Something similar in personality or behaviour.

    Is there something going on at work that you don't agree with? That doesn't mesh with your moral code? Is there some situation you feel pressure from others to go along with yet is wrong for you, may lead down a path you do not want to travel?

    Kind regards,
    Kathy

    Re: Emotional Dream

    Work is becoming more political and sometimes I'd just like to walk away. I do not know if that's where all this is coming from. I am in school...don't want to be there either but its free so how could one pass up such an opportunity? I can say one thing for sure, if there is something that can blind you from your heart's desire it is fear.

    Re: Emotional Dream

    Jamel,
    Thank you for providing personal information. This personal information is vital to dream interpretation. In my posts I usually include descriptions of people I know in waking life that appear as dream characters. When interpreting dreams with known characters defining them is a good starting point in my interpretations. And leads to a more accurate interpretation.

    In your prior post, we discussed evaluation and action. The unconscious can present issues in snipets, a much as a Psyche can understand and work with at a particular moment. Like climbing a ladder, each step is successive leading to another. Or acts in a play.

    Perhaps this dream describes repressed negative issue(s) and a need for self forgiveness to resolve such. Traumatic childhood events like you were subjected to can lead to skewed unconscious perceptions of self guilt, loathing, etc. Even though you were the victim this negative perception can and does sometimes develop. Victims of abuse, in what ever form, often feel self blame.

    In this dream your friend resides in your house with your family, in your room. Add this to anger (in the dream) and it may equal some internalized anger, anger within directed at Self. Note the demoralzing verbalizations directed at Dionne. Could this be inner condemnation from the actual attack?

    Five can indicate change. In this dream it may symbolize change of perception of the incident brings healing. Crying may be a need to release from those inner negative thoughts and emotions, emotional release. Forgiveness in Self for Self, and perhaps for those that injured you. For understanding there was nothing you could do to protect yourself. You held no responsibility for the attack or resulting physical, emotional and mental injuries thrust upon you. This could disolve the anger and hence turn to compassion.

    The reflection is possibly the image of the true Self, the innocent child unspoiled by a negative Self image. Note the continuing theme of three you mentioned in the prior post is apparent in this dream, too. sister, stepfaterh and mother...three. Three is sometimes symbolic for incomplete. Four for completeness, or integration. Resolving this issue integrating the inner child can heal this injury to the Psyche...The ending of this dream is positive.

    Please let us know your thoughts.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy

    Re: Emotional Dream

    Kathy,

    First of all thanks for that detailed interpretation. I've gained a lot of knowledge from it and I believe that you've struck a few chords with many things. I am not sure how much of an impact that event had in my life, I know and knew then I couldn't do anything, however, the event still did bring a lot of anger and it was tied in with other things going on in life. I think anger and those negative emotions have the same origin, and therefore tie together in my mind, forming a pattern.

    Whatever was forgiven I am glad, and it has come around on some serious changes in my thinking over the past few weeks that has been extremely beneficial to me. I will continue to operate as such since I believe the dream was a reflection of that new stream of thought, and I thank you once again for taking the time to unravel things for me.
