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.

    Relationship

    BACKROUND
    I've been asking this girl at school to hang out, go to the movies etc. Nothing works. In school I talked to her, and she said she's not intrested in a relationship.

    So, I had a dream I went to school and some girl I've never seen before followed me during a bell change to my class. Then she asked me if I was intrested in going to the movies or something. She was in a really exciting mood.

    I do have an intrest in another girl. What does this mean?

    Thanks,

    Re: Relationship

    Joe,
    Although Sigmund Freud is now taking a back seat to Jungian dream approach, two things he expounded do have merit in certain instances of dream interpretation. One we are all familiar with is the 'sexual' aspects. The other is wish fulfillment. Your dream seems to fit the later.

    Because you have this burning desire to meet a girl but have had no luck with the one girl, your dreams focus that wishful desire. The girl in your dream is what you wish for, balancing out what has yet to happen. Dreams help sort through the emotional issues we encounter in our daily lives. In society there is the 'marriage' of two people, joining together into one, a balance of yin and yang. If that is lacking in real life the dream can, and will through wish fulfillment, provide that balance of yin and yang, within your psyche. What is lacking on the outside is balanced on the inside. At least temporarily. Eventually the outside will have to catch up with inner desires or calamity occurs. Or you have to lower your expectations which could even be worse.

    What to do? The other girl you have an interest in. Follow up on that. And if that doesn't succeed try, try again. But in the process of fulfilling your desires do not let the mind stray away from finding that perfect match {or as perfect as it can get}. All too often young people jump on the first wagon and find out later it is going in the wrong direction. I was guilty of that when I was young, married and soon divorced. Trying to fulfill a desire can be challenging when you have to weight the compatibility of one who must fill that role.

    In a deeper since what you are probably trying to do is balance your own psyche, giving equal opportunity to the masculine/ feminine qualities we all possess. But that is something else entirely and should be left for another time.
