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 mom

    I found the notes from the dream I had about my friend's mom. (Same friend as in my previous post were I had the short dream about both of his parents). Here's the dream: I went to Fred's mom's house (I've never actually been there). There was a box from amazon.com on the front stairs and I was carrying red roses. No one was home. The door was open and I went in. I was still carrying the flowers and the box. I went into Fred's room which was rather cluttered. I started to open the box from amazon.com. I must have heard someone because the next theng I knew, I was headed downstairs not carrying the box or the flowers). His mom was coming up the stairs. I introduced myself as Fred's friend and gave her my name. She didn't seem surprised and we went outside and talked about Fred and Ann (his ex who he's now engaged to -- or at least he was the last time I spoke with him in August of 2006). I told his mom all about Fred and me. I don't remember what she said, but when we were talking about him and Ann, she rolled her eyes and agreed that where Ann is concerned, he needs to "grow some cahonas". It was a very friendly conversation.

    Thanks.

    Also, just curious if there was anything peculiar about dreaming about his father who passed on so many years ago. Thanks.

    Re: Friend's mom

    Hi Deej

    there are multiple interpretations of every dream - I'll offer this perspective:

    Can I put this back to you ? Deej - that YOU need to "grow some cahonas" ,,, I am not familiar with this but I think it relates to becoming more masculine ? is that right.

    This would fit with you 'entering Fred's room'.

    The house you enter is Fred's mom's house ,,, does this symbolise that you have been heavily influenced by your mother ,,, and that you have not been present for yourself (there was no one home)?
    The box from Amazon reminds me of Pandoras box ,,, you never know what you'll find inside.

    What are you thoughts ?

    Re: Friend's mom

    Justin,

    Thanks for the interpretation. I don't think I've been influenced by my mom. And, as far as this friend is concerned, I don't need to be more assertive or masculine, although there are other areas in my life where that might apply. As for not being present for myself, I'm not sure what you mean by that, but I do put the needs, feelings, etc. of others before my own. I find your relating the amazon box to a pandora's box very intriguing (good thing I didn't open it in the dream -- lol). Thanks again.
