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.

    please tell me what this means

    My future mother-in-law had died suddenly in her bed two weeks ago. She passed suddenly in her sleep and her sons and I were there when she passed. Her funeral was two days ago. I had a dream that the family dug up her casket and left it in someone’s backyard as if a viewing was still going on. She didn't look the way she did at the funeral. In fact, she looked more like herself and was wearing different clothes. Her skin color was a little greyish though. Everyone was standing around talking while her sons and I were looking at the casket. Later on in my dream, my fiancé and I were mad because they dug up her casket. I realized then that I was in my old room at my mother's house and he was looking out of my window. I walk over to the window to him and seen her casket. It was partially open to see her holding white flowers. Her casket was facing in the opposite direction so I couldn’t see her face. Then I looked again and somehow her body was sliding out of the casket and onto the ground. I walked out the room and noticed that my fiance's family was in the house, talking amongst each other. I walk back into the room to see my fiancé with a fishing pole, trying to put her back into the casket. I glance out the window to see her dangling in front of the window with the same white flowers. I quickly walked out and I was thinking, "isn't it against the law to have a dead body just sitting there?" I figured I'm having this dream because I miss her so much and our relationship were just blossoming until she passed.

    Jackie,
    Was there some type of conflict with your deceased mother-in-law? {You mentioned that the relationship was just beginning to blossom}. Digging up her casket may represent digging up conflicts, something you had begun to put behind you when she died. You may be agonizing over the negative aspects of the relationship and may feel guilty over past experiences with her. Or it may involve what others have thought or said about the relationship. The positive changes in the relationship {casket facing in opposite direction} may have overshadowed the negatives. The unconscious guilt may be what is prompting this dream.

    Re: please tell me what this means

    you might feel a little guilty about the relationship you had with her, and also fear that some of her relatives may not be putting this to rest.

    I think if you knew they truly were forgiving of you, you would feel better about yourself and your relationship.
