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.

    Sixteen year old inheritance of apartment

    I am sixteen years old. I inherent an apartment from my grandfather. I am the rightful heir. Now my sister comes to tell me she and her husband will take away the apartment from me, because they have more rights to it than me, because she didn't marry someone who was unacceptable to the family. I tell her I invested my own money to make repairs to the apartment and make it what it is today, liveable and well-decorated. I wake up with the conflict unresolved.

    thanks all!

    Re: Sixteen year old inheritance of apartment

    this is more of the same struggle: the old vs the new; in addition we have feelings of being worthy being questioned.

    YOu seem to feel unworthy somehow, because you have assimilated to a different way of life than the old ways more than maybe you thought you could, or more than you think is acceptable to yourself and your environment.

    You are trying to explain to yourself why you are still worthy of being considered a full fledged individual still associated with the ancestrial heritage of your grandparents and at peace with the memory of who and what they were: ethnically as well as people. Maybe even a little more than the aforementioned is at stake as well cause you maybe wondering whether you are worthy of the love of your ancestors, and inevitably your own self love. You feel you have earned it, as you argue you have worked on the apartment yourself and given of yourself. this is very good.

    But, you have a strong propensity to question yourself on these issues, and this is why it may be your sister that is questioning. this is a close blood link to you and it may be symbolic that these questions are strongly linked to your self image.

    Re: Sixteen year old inheritance of apartment

    Hi Carlos,
    I think you are definitely right on.

    I think this dream is telling me about my individuation process, that I am making my own path, and aspects of my psyche are feeling challenged by that; the old, ancestral, shadow elements, sister.

    Also, it says something about my real life situation that I married someone who my family disapproves of and in symbolic and literal ways they have disinherited me, maybe even disowned me, and I'm getting that sense from my dreams even though they don't say it directly, and it also speaks to something about my animus. He is somehow unacceptable to other parts of me...

    what do you think of this line of analysis?

    Sorry for the delay, have been travelling and am getting settled again.

    Thanks so much,

    yes, you have it down well. You have already taken the first steps toward individuation, and you might as well finish your journey. It is time to diminish your family's ability to effect your self worth by seeking acceptance by them. You must find it within yourself as you are telling yourself in your dream, also: I fixed the house; I invested in it. These are things you have done for yourself that make you an independent individual with the ability to recreate yourself, and with a lot of self worth. .
