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.

    Predicting events

    When I was younger, I foresaw many events through dreams e.g. an old friend I'd lost contact with moving back into town. I haven't had any of these types of dreams in years and would like to get them back. I just found an article on keeping a dream journal. The author mentions many benefits including making dreams more lucid. It sounds like a great start. Does anyone keep a dream journal?

    Re: Predicting events

    Sophie,
    Yes, I keep a dream journal. Although lately I've been in a cycle of no dream recall - maybe due to work demands.

    I find a dream journal is very helpful in my Self work. I continue to review past dreams, even many years past, for additional or more in depth meaning.

    I plan to post my 2006 journal (without interptations) on my site in a few weeks. Although those with some knowledge of Jung will know of my personal battles...resulting losses and victories ...darkness and light.

    Well...what's a little insanity between friends?!

    Kind regards,

    Re: Predicting events

    Sophie - The article on journaling dreams has got me totally psyched! I'm starting mine in the morning.

    Kathy - Looking forward to your 2006 journal. Seems awfully brave. I'm not sure I could open up like that.

    Re: Predicting events

    Sophie,
    Having learned that understanding dreams,
    and interpreting them correctly, requires a developed
    intuitive aspect, I suggest you concentrate on working your intuitive mind if you wish to regain those talents you once possessed. It may be that when you were younger and less ego oriented the intuitive aspect came naturally. But as you grew older and accumulated baggage {one big difference between dreams of an older person and a younger person is the older person has much more experience in life, and much more baggage to carry} you have placed that intuitive aspect on the back burner. Perhaps by asserting its power {you still possess this powerful aspect, it just needs to be revived} through conscious intent will bring it back to its rightful place.

    Some background experience of my own that may reinforce this belief. I have been studying dreams and the psyche since 1992. Being a man my intuitive aspect is not supposed to be that prevalent. But with each passing year that intuitive aspect has developed and my ability to read dreams has also. It is because I work with the intuitive aspect that is grows. Just with any skill that needs to be developed, it requires conscious practice to enhance the ability. If I can develop my intuitive skills {a feminine aspect of the anima} then imagine what a female could do who already possesses a highly developed intuitive aspect. Working with dreams is an excellent way to develop this most powerful aspect. And keeping a dream diary is an excellent way to go about working with dreams.

    But there is one other element that I suggest to incorporate into your dream work. And that is Carl Jung and his psychology of the dream. When you work with dreams you are working with the psyche. The psyche is the psychology of the individual, as well as the collective {Jung's archetypes}. There is no one who has provided greater insights to the dream world, or the psyche, than Jung. And I also suggest you use Joseph Campbell as a primer and companion to Jung. Symbols and metaphor, dreams and myth, they are all intertwined.

    Re: Predicting events

    This is so great to hear, i have those types of dreams physic dreams and have had them all my life. i'm just hopless at writting them down.

    one thing i have learnt black and white not to worry to much about. and colour pay attention.

    Some helpfull hints.

    to dream of past lives: wear an opal or sleep wit one under your pillow and works well for inducing dreams of prpr incarnations.

    to recall dreams: place red jasper on the headboard or nightstand before you sleep.

    to dream of true love: tuck five bay leaves in your pillow case on alentine's day to bring dreams of your true love.

    Re: Predicting events

    Thanks for all your help. I'll keep checking back for updates. I'll also check back for a dream evaluation once my journal is a bit more established.

    Thanks again!
