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.

    throwing up broken shards of glass

    I feel great about this particular dream but need some clarity. I can't remember exactly how it began but I was being chased by an Asian man, who finally cornered me, saying, "Ah, the ancient ones usually come in a weak female form. You are a force to be reckoned with." He then grabbed my jaw, which forced most of my teeth to come loose. I broke free from his grip and began to spit out my teeth. Then, I began heaving, and long, broken shards of glass came from my stomach and out of my mouth. I didn't realize they were in my system, but regurgitating them was such a physical relief. Then, a storm (not of rain but of more broken glass and other debris) fell from the sky. I ingested a little, but was able to rid myself of them as well. Then, I had the insight that if I were really still, I could avoid the storm altogether. I paused, assumed the lotus position, and began to meditate. Sure enough, I was protected from the storm. As it stopped, I woke up from the dream and had this amazing sense of relief. I was able to breathe very deeply and had a tingly feeling in my solar plexus where the glass was coming from in the dream. I was so overcome with emotion, it felt as though I had a profound spiritual experience in my sleep. Can anyone help me decipher the full meaning of it all??? Thanks in advance...

    Re: throwing up broken shards of glass

    Del Ray,
    The man chasing you is most likely a shadow aspect that is needing to be realized and confronted. The man being Asian may be due to influences of studying Eastern principles {you state in the dream the lotus position and meditation}. But it also may indicate the aspect that is chasing you is 'ancient', a condition that you have possessed for a long period of time.

    The weak female form may have significance in that you have been unable or unwilling to confront this aspect about yourself {the inability would be a feminine aspect}. This force that needs to be reckoned with would an emotional force.

    Losing your teeth may indicate identity issues. The jaw is used for communication {here it would represent communication between your unconscious and conscious mind}. But it also can represent the state of your inner being, that having to do with the shadow aspect that is chasing you.

    Breaking free is realizing this aspect about yourself. You are finally coming to terms with it {spitting out teeth}. What was once oblique is now becoming transparent/visible {glass} and your are regurgitating these aspects that have been chasing you, finally being able to get them out of your system.

    Being still, the lotus position may indicate changes in your life have brought about new insights about yourself. The inner spiritual experience in your dream may be an indication you need to rely more on these aspects in your waking life. The storms {emotions} that come up can be controlled by willful meditation {disciplined actions in your waking life}.

    Summary
    The shadow aspect often is about deeper emotional issues that you have experienced in your life. And that is probably part of the dream message. But it also may be addressing the total psyche, the depths of who you are and how you have faced challenges in your life. Now you have new tools to counter these negative aspects. You are probably entering a new phase in life and perhaps spirituality is an aspect you need to incorporate into your waking life. You may have already started on this path but the dream seems to indicate you need to put more effort into. Eastern philosophies are as much psychological as they are religious. The lotus position is a natural aspect of controlling emotional 'storms' and meditation is known to help get through the emotional conflicts, whether it be deeper issues or every day conflicts.

    What in recent days prior to the dream have you experienced that seems to have awakened the inner self? You are at that beginning stage of mid-life and the dream may be a call to focus on that inner self. By doing so you are better able to confront real life issues. There may be deeper issues from earlier life that need to be explored. But the dream seems to indicate you have these emotional issues under control, at least for the time being.

    Your thoughts may help us further understand the dream.
