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

    I dreamt I was in a house similar to the one i am in now, upstairs and downstairs. My husband was in the basement with our youngest daughter. He was making her a beautiful wooden bed frame it was very ornate.I was going around the house spraying flies with raid these flies seemed to be everywhere. (kinda like Amityville Horor)I was upstairs and i heard my little girl screaming this awful scream.I ran downstairs but I wasn't able to move very fast. There was a barrel type hot tub in the basement. I remember the water was very black and slimy looking. When i finally did get down there I saw my little girl being pulled under the water by something. I dove in and that is when I woke up.

    Re: nightmare

    Cathy,
    The first thing that must be determined is whether the dream is addressing aspects of your current family, husband and daughter, or if it is addressing you as a child. I offer this possibility because of the house you are in {in the dream}. Because there is a similarity between two houses may suggest the possibility that the conditions of your childhood home, and the experiences during that time, are similar to the home you have with your current family. Are the two very much the same?

    Let's examine the possibility the dream is referencing your own childhood. Being pulled under the water suggests unconscious aspects, and since it is your little girl {you} being pulled under there may be experiences from your childhood that were frightening. The water is black and slimy suggesting there may have been something you felt as being 'slimy' during that stage of life. And since the two houses are similar there may be experiences occurring now that remind you of your childhood home.

    Look at that possibility and let me know your thoughts. If that does not fit then we will need to look at the current relationship between the members of your present day family.
