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.

    Friend's parents

    A couple of nights ago, I had a dream that I was staying with a friend's parents. I have never met this friend's parents and his father passed away 8 years before I met him. I asked his parents how he was doing, but woke up before I got an answer. It's a wierd friendship. We haven't spoken or seen each other since last August. We became friends 3 years ago and had begun to be involved with one another when he got back with his ex-girlfriend. She does not like that we are friends and many times I have asked if our friendship is over, but he says no. So we would email one another and talked on the phone occasionally (which is why I've never met his mom, although I had a dream only about her a few months ago -- Hmm, maybe I should post that one, too). Thanks, Danielle

    Re: Friend's parents

    Danielle,
    Since you have never met his parents, the probability is they represent an aspect of your psyche {you are the parents}. Since both are present in the dream there may be an element of balancing involved. The relationship may have lacked a balance to it that you wished for or needed.

    You stated that he got back with his ex. Were you more involved with the relationship than he? Perhaps you wish he had put more effort into it, providing a balance.
    The parenting aspect may be about you being his parents, perhaps he is not as mature as you expected or he should be. The limit text of the dream doesn't give a lot of room for more of an explanation. Is there more to the dream? If so post that info and it may provide more insights to the dream.

    Thanks, Gerard. Unfortunately, that is all that the dream was. It was really short. And, yes, I admit I put more into the relationship than he did. Thanks again. When I find my notes about the dream I had about just his mom, I'll post it. Glad I found this forum.

    How Did You Find the Dream Forum? only this one

    Re: Friend's parents

    I'm kind of curious if there's any meaning to the fact that the dream included his father who has passed on. I just found it odd to be dreaming about someone I'd never met who had passed on. I'm used to dreaming about people I've known in my life who've passed on, but this really struck me as odd.

    Thanks again.
