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.

    Re: dead mother in law

    Hi Christine

    well the issue of whether or not yr grandmother is trying to tell you something is a matter that you will have to decide.
    There are a few things that (from a Jungian perspective) seem to be true about dreams:
    - are always truthful
    - we can learn a lot about ourselves and the world through our dreams
    - they often speak at different levels, with different meanings,
    - dreams will only give us what we can handle.

    So to your dream:
    Did you notice the sunshine? the light ,,, 'a brightness I've never seen before'. The children playing ,,,

    This dream could be giving you some clues as to the big picture of things ,,, a bit like a panorama of life as it pertains to you, your family and what happens after death.
    In this dream, your mother in law could be seen as a crone (a wise old woman) - she is on the path, a dirt path ,,, that is the real authentic path not one covered over. We are all on this path, some knowingly, others unconsciously (most people). Dead or alive we, as spirit are somewhere on this path.

    I guess what you are asking is this a dream of permanition.
    These dreams seem to occur ,,, rarely to very few people.
    Another take may be to consider what were your true feelings to you m-i-l ,,, and also to your nephew. Do these people have personality traits in common with your ? or just the opposite.
    There may be clues for you in this.
    Remember the dream is from you to you ,,, it can help to 'doodle' your thoughts on paper as you reflect

    My take ? the dream is showing you that in death there is progress on the path, great light and playfulness

    take care

    Re: dead mother in law

    Christine,
    It is not what your deceased mother in law is trying to say to you, it is what you are trying to say to yourself using her as a tool of communication. Her death is probably the central message of the dream. I come to this conclusion because of the 5 children who also have passed. The focus of the dream seems to be death.

    The inclusion of your slow walking nephew may be a fear he too is not healthy or is actually addressing real health issues {is he healthy?}. The men in black suites probably represents your unconscious. The face of your nephew probably goes back to your concerns {albeit unconscious} about his health.

    Do you have fears about your nephews health? That may be the intent of the dream, to focus the emotional effect of his health to those other members of your family who have died.

    Hi Christine

    I am sure I speak for Gerard also - we are happy to offer some clues to what dreams mean ,,,,

    Can I ask, from your perspective, as your life is now and for what is going on for you, what feelings arose when your read the interpretations ? What are your thoughts - soes what was interpreted fit or not with what is going on for you ?

    all the best

    Re: dead mother in law

    Justin, Thank you for responding . There isnt much going on in my life at the momment , except losing a very special person in our lives. I have to tell you that I experience OBE,s quite often and have astro plain quite a bit. Some of my experiences have really scared me. Ive been reading alot as much as I can. I have been told Im very mystical and spiritual. Ive seen spirits and have heard them. The night before my mother in law died I heard a series of knocks and i have heard them again. I keep a dream journal and I scare myself sometimes when I read them back to myself.Sometimes well alot of times Im usually right about the things that come too me. so my dream of my mother in law gave me an uneasy feeling about my nephew. I have OBEs that would scare the life out of most people.
