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.

    Help - Disturbing Dream

    I had the worst dream of my life lastnight. To give you some backgound I am currently undergoing a divorce and have been separated from my husband for over a year. My ex has been married previously. I am now in a happy relationship with my current partner of one year and are not living together.

    In my dream last night my partner was planning to marry my ex-husband's ex-wife. He told me about the wedding and said that he proposed to her over 2 years ago and he had to stick to his word and he would marry her even though he was not in a relationship with her. He invited me to the wedding and during my dream all the wedding prepartions were underway. When he was with his family wedding planning his Dad (who is a retired pilot) took me for a spin around the runway in his seaplane. In my waking life I am terrified of flying and in my dream I was asking him to take me off the ground slowly until I felt comfortable with flying and I wanted to face my fears...and I was so excited about doing it.

    Then the dream shifts into some weird learning room where I was studying something and people were attending a 'poo' class where everyone sat on the toilet and inspected their deposit.

    When it came time to have the wedding I saw the bride in her cream dress and long blond hair and I couldnt come to terms with the fact that my partner was actually going to marry her. All I could think about was how could he and then we couldnt get married and have kids etc.

    Before my partner was about to attend the ceremony I was getting dressed for his wedding and he would not wait for me - its almost as if he didnt want me to see him. I got so angry at him and gave him a dirty look and then lit up a cigarette with my mother. I was crying to her about his decision. He was only gone a matter or minutes and then he came back to see me because he wanted to be with me but he already said his vows.

    After the ceremony we drove down to a beach front property with old school mates of mine and I knew the relationship between us was over.....then I woke up.

    It would be great to have some insight into this dream as it has left me feeling really sad and insecure about my relationship.

    Re: Help - Disturbing Dream

    NSF,
    Would not your ex-husband's ex-wife be you? Perhaps there are questions about the present relationship. But they may be due to the failed experiences from your previous marriage carrying over to the possibilities of your present relationship. You may need to 'take off' slowly in your new relationship {which you seem to be doing}. You may need to overcome your fears due to experiences from your first marriage.

    Toliets are where you eliminate things. Perhaps you do need to learn to eliminate those emotional fears you still hold on to. Upon inspection of your past you are having trouble with the possibilities of the failed experiences from your past {marriage}.

    The bride is you. Coming to terms to marrying again may be your fears that you need to eliminate.

    The last two paragraphs seem to be addressing disagreements, probably something you and your current partner may have had {does he want to get married but you are still undecided?}. He has made his intentions known {vows} and although you want to be with him you are not ready for that 'ultimate' commitment.

    There may be intuitive instincts at work here. Do you sense something about your current partner that you are not quite sure of? Perhaps these instincts are a result of the failure from your first marriage, may or may not fit with your current relationship. Are there intuitive doubts that go beyond those experiences from the first marriage?

    The positive thing about this relationship is you are taking it slow and not jumping into the fire before knowing what is really cooking. Parts of it seem to be due to experiences from your first marriage but there may be intuitive aspects at play also. Follow your instincts because they know best. But don't let past failures blur the lines. Continue on the slow path and truth will prevail.
