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.

    nightmare

    Well I dreamt that I was i my backyard and all of a sudden my mom ran out from behind the garage. She was histerical and said that a big dog was chasing her and it had the face of the devil. As soon as she ran off I woke up. The next night I starting having the same dream agian. It picked up where it left off the night before. My mom had run off and the n I saw the dog coming towards me and I began to run. I fell adn the dig jumoped on me and is face began to change. It went from a dogs face to the face of the devil. It began to laugh. Right as it was going to bite me I woke up. What do you think this means? Any ideas?

    this could have something to do with a trip you are taking or you took. It may have brought out of you some behavior or attitudes that are dangerous to you and will keep you down.

    Re: nightmare

    Cutieberries,
    Backyards often symbolize unconscious contents or actions. Garbage could be what you might consider as something worthless to give any attention to. And since your mother is involved {real parents are one of the few instances where there can be a literal interpretation of the subject to real life-most other objects or people are symbolic} there may be experiences with her that the dream is trying to address. Dogs can represent nuiances in life. Has there been any discussions with your mother that you perceived as simply garbage on her part?

    Or perhaps you and she share the same emotional attitude, or fear {My mom had run off and then I saw the dog coming towards me and I began to run}? Whereas she may feel the subject the two of you share is important and could be 'devilish', you laugh at that possibility. But maybe she is right, you should take it more seriously before it bites you {Right as it was going to bite me I woke up}. Look back to the past several days to discussions with your mother and see where there may be compatibility to the dream.

    My bad. I have changed to decaf coffee and at 5 in the morning I guess that isn't what I need. I'll revisit the dream later and see where the garage plays into things. Thanks Carlos.

    Re: nightmare

    Cutieberries,
    Sorry for the misreading of garage earlier. I am an
    early riser and sometimes I miss something, and sometimes so apparent one wonders where my mind was. And the coffee thing is real.

    Backyard and garage suggest a possibility
    of unconscious contents. Both you and your mom share in a flight from something. The attitudes I offered previously could still fit. The two of you possess some shared aspect, trait, or experience.

    The face of the devil is prominent in the dream. Devils could represent any number of negative possibilities {devil should not be taken literally - it is symbolic of a negative aspect or experience}. The changing face, perhaps ego/persona issues. At 20 you are still very much in that formative stage to adulthood and such issues are a vital part of your life, and a frequent visitor in your dreams.
