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.

    Re: turning into a butterfly

    Hospitals often represent inner healing and cocoons transformations from one thing to another.
    Your dream seems to be addressing a desire that your husband undergo changes to perhaps make him into something better than he is at the present. Perhaps there has been experiences with him that requires healing, either for you, him or both.

    Re: turning into a butterfly

    Hi Mary

    Its a pleasure to read your dream, your dream speaks of transformation, taking the premise that each element in a dream relates to us in some way it is a mirror of our own innerbeing as if being pressed on to a holographic plate and played out in symbolic form.

    Your husband in the dream seems to be reflecting your own inner masculine traits, as men in dreams reflect our attitudes and beliefs the doing/active side of ourselves your husband here reflecting those traits that you are in 'relationship with', those traits in your self that you are intimate with and can be percieved as attributes both positive and negative.

    The hospital suggests a place of healing on some level, you have undergone some form of healing weather it be as a result of some external sort of therapy, or work you have been doing with yourself either unconsciously or consciously like meditation, journal writing, etc.

    As a result a beautiful transformation has taken place your masculine traits have been turned into a beautiful butterfly which tends to inspire new beginnings and qualitys of the higher mind, where judgemnet, rigidity and competive controlling ways are transcended or transformed. The butterfly coveys 'beautiful' qualitys such as more freedom in ones attitude, more confidence in ones approach to life and respect and acceptance for oneself and humanity.

    This is only my perspective take what feels right to you and ditch the rest

    Best of luck Marce
