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.

    bengal tiger

    first of all, hello to everyone, it s been several months since i ve been here the last time. i had some, i would say, bad and tempting period of slight deppresion in my life, so i didnt post any of my dreams. and in that period i didnt remember my dreams that good, but now i m back on the track again. i would like to thank gerard for his responses to my posts, and i want to remind him that the results i was waiting for one or two months ago turned out to be ok, thanks again, gerard, for your help.
    so, i had 3 dreams in a row last three nights, and all of them seem to be very important for me right now. in first dream i was preparing a huge group of people for the war, making the food and putting some strawberries in bags for them, for later, and then with some friends, known and unknown, went to the beach that more resembles bank of Gang river, with stone staircase, where me and my female friend are in a shallow water refreshing from heat, and people around us are swimming, cause it s extremely hot, and i m soooo happy, i m laughing and turning my head to sun, and sun is shining on me..i remember the teh sky was cloudy, grey, but i kind of feel the sun on my face, and i woke up laughing hard...second one is really bizzare, for one reason- i dreamed that i m a serial killer who s wearing a mask and killed 30 classmates in my school, i m killing them with the knife or some sharp object, i dont remember, and blood is everywhere, it s horrible(everything resembles these trash teenage horror movies where an angry kid is killing everyone around)...but the only thing i m afraid of is going to prison, and staying there for the rest of my life...the bizzare thing about it is that i woke up in the morning at 7 15 am californian time, and i was talking to a friend around 10 am who told me that some guy killed around 30 people from his school in virginia, i suppose you all know that. so, i was shocked, but then again, i still can t quite connect these two things for real;
    the third dream from last night is a child walking through a tall, like lephant grass, and i dont know, i think it s a boy, and there is a voice in the background, sayin that he should go there, but he should be aware of danger, and the possible danger is bengal tiger...i remember having this image of beuatiful green grass that i m walking through, and thinking how it would be an amazing photgraphy with green in the background and black dots(?) flowers on it...the second scene is a child playing in the send, and he or she, i dont remeber, but i think it s a boy, lifts up his head and sees a huge tiger in front of him, just a few steps away, looking at him, but not in a hunting position, but like a cat just sitting and staring at him...sorry for the long post, but i would really appreciate any suggestions, thank you

    Re: bengal tiger

    Welcome back. I so happy to hear your test results turned out to be OK. Wasn't that something we discussed about your dream, the fact that it pointed to positive results from your tests? Although illnesses can be detected in dreams long before actual confirmation, dreams can also point to positive results. If it is worrisome and stressing you your dreams will clarify what is true and what is not.

    Your first dream seems to be addressing your actual state of mind, the depression yet sunny outlook in your life {this is very positive}. The fact that you woke up in such a good mood is even more positive, an indication that you have confronted the worst and laughed at it.

    The second dream is interesting. Having such a dream prior to the massacre at Virginia Tech?
    The serial killer is most likely a personal aspect, perhaps masked in the unconscious. I sense it is confronting a fear that something about your life {perhaps the depression you endured} is threatening to hold you prisoner and you feel a need to 'kill' off those negatives. There may be something deeper {do you have a clue to why you were depressed?} involved.

    The third dream may be addressing those deeper aspects. Anytime I see a child within a dream I tend to want to examine its influence on the waking experiences of the dreamer's current life. It may have something to do with actual childhood experiences that tend to make up the personality of the dreamer as an adult. In your case I don't see anything revealing that looks traumatic. Since the child is male it could be addressing some 'masked' experience. Or it could be pointing to your own undeveloped masculine aspects. There may have been some perceived danger in your life that turned out to be false. The tiger may be the feminine energies, which is true may have perceived danger whereas your developing masculine aspect {boy} knows it is just that, perceived and not real. There may be a need to revisit childhood experiences to help determine what be there.

    Overall I believe your dreams are addressing your stressful situation {slight depression} and perhaps also underlying causes for it. I see the tiger as a positive aspect. The fact that you have turned a corner {I assume you have} with your depression may be what this positive aspect is addressing. What seemed to be a prison {depression} is now looking toward the positives in your life. The feminine power {the highest power of the psyche} is working to develop a masculine mechanism {the boy} to help you cope with the stresses in your life. This creates a balance in life. That is the intention of the dream, to help balance those things in life that are out of balance.

    Any thoughts to my interpretation? The slight depression may be a result of the stresses from the 'perceived' results of the once expectant tests. We know now that that was an unnecessary fear since the tests came back positive {which your original dream suggested they would}. The little boy may be simply addressing that aspect and not earlier childhood experiences {even though I suggest that be taken into consideration as to the causations to some of your fears}.

    Re: bengal tiger

    dear Gerard, and everyone, thanks for your respond, although i have to be honest, i didnt expect it to be so quick, after the fact that i sent three dreams at once, thank you so much, and i m sorry for not answering to it for so long. the main reason is that, i dont know what is going on, but i feel i cant get out of the siotuation i m in for such a long time. first, there was this health issue, i was completely in a mess and thought nothing in this world will ever bother me again if the results are ok, and now..i guess man gets used to any kind of situation in life, and than, for these who are not strong enough, like i think i am, there is always some other tail to chase. i would love to contemplate your answer, and give you hints about it, but things are just coming to me from so many sides at this moment, looking for me to consider them, and it s all happening at the same time, that i think my head is ready to explode. this is a really, really heavy period for me, like some questions that were bothering me for years are waiting for answers now, and i m feeling i m not strong enough to persevere. and that s why i m confused too much and cant organize my thoughts, and i m telling you all this hoping you ll understand that i cant give you any precise information. i dont even remember dreams recently, and i think i really need a break from things for a while. but i hope i ll have a dream soon for you, and answers related to my previous post..thanks again, best regards
