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.

    Mud in my shoes

    In this dream I am walking from my my childhood girlfriend's house heading down the street to my old house. I have my daughter with me in a stroller.
    Just outside my old friend's house I discover that the gardens around the nearby houses are surrounded by tombstones instead of fences. I then see a message from another friend (who I have chatted a lot with recently) appear on the stones. A few words on each stone makes up a scentence. His message goes something like this: "I am high now. I remember a fall, at least a hundred meters, down a hill through a very strange terrain...."
    I don't undrestand the message and feel a bit worried that it has appeared on the stones, what will the neighbours think when the ramblings of my spaced out friend has replaced the names of the dead?

    Next I am at the house I live in now. My partner is there too, and the sun is so bright and warm outside. I take off my daughters clothes and take her by the hand and go out on the terrase to dance with her in the sun. But when I come out in the sun, the light is just to bright, and I cant open my eyes. This is something I have dreamt many times before. It is a horrible feeling. Now she suddenly lets go of my hand and I cant see her, only hear her. I become afraid that she will fall down the stairs to the garden, and I shout for my partner to come out cause I can't see.
    He takes her inside, and I go out again to pour out the water I have filled in my shoes.
    I have got my sight back and see that my shoes are filled with watery mud and something that looks like seaweed or dead leaves. It is quite a job to clean them and suddenly I feel a branch from a tree stuck on my back. I get it off me and put my shoes on. They are wet and there are still some leaves left.

    When I come inside again my daughter has fallen asleep on the couch. I feel a bit angry with my partner because it is my turn to take her out in the stroller again. I feel like it's my turn all the time. I say something just to let him know that I'm annoyed with him, and then I put her in the stroller and walk off.
    The strange thing is that I feel like I'm heading home when I leave the house again. It's like I'm going back to my childhood home. When I come back to the tombstones, I find that the message is gone and the names and dates are back. I feel a bit disappointed that the world has become regular again..

    Re: Mud in my shoes

    You seem to have left some difficult past issues behind and forgotten them too, but are still effected by them subconsciously.
    YOu may want to think about what happened during your time in the "old house" and what was your mind set.

    How is your friend reminding you of this.

    THe inscription on the grave basically seem to say you feel you are ok now, but you had a bad time period where you fell: you possibly were out of control.

    Re: Mud in my shoes

    Thank you for your response. Your interpretation makes sense, I have indeed been out of control in the past, and I'm working on resolving my childhood issues. The theme of going back to the place where I grew up is recurring in most of my dreams now.

    I feel though as the most important thing in this dream is the part where I want to dance with my naked daughter in the sun, but am unable to open my eyes because the light is too bright... This was the most intense part of the dream, and to not be able to open my eyes beacause of bright sunlight is something I have dreamt many times ever since I was very youg. This scene also took place in the house I live in now, so maybe it tells me something about how the fall in the past is affecing me right now.. If you or anyone have thoughts on what this could mean, I would really like to hear them!

    Re: Mud in my shoes

    Yes, not being able to dance in the sun is poignant. Basking in sunlight is good in a dream. You seem to not be able to do it. This could indicate that you need to deal with your inner issues first. You may have internalized incorrect and harmful ideas about yourself into your psyche when you had your fall or your issues in the past.

    You may not be able to see any reason for you to feel good about yourself because you have internalized some very negative idea about yourself as a child. You must try to realize the issue, and address its affects on you so that you can overcome it.

    You may have to also go through a process of breaking away from the effect of some family members who may have affected you at a young age.
