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.

    Dream about trip/ family

    Hello all,
    Last night I had a dream that I was going on a trip with my family. We were taking a plane somewhere then getting on a boat. The whole plane part was kind of in fast forward- the main part was getting to the boat. There was a big crowd of people, and someone announced that the first group of people to get on the boat would win a prize, so I started running through the crowd, but didn't make it in time to win. Then this is the really weird part- the person at the dock wasn't strong enough to anchor the boat or whatever, so they brought in a big animal, looked like a buffalo, to do it, and the animal did it, but from the force it died! (in the dream, it actually burst into flames, which was really disturbing). Then we were about to get on, and I realized I hadn't packed anything! I said to my father "I didn't pack anything! Things have been so crazy the last few weeks I didn't even think to pack. And I don't have time to go home and get anything." And I was crying and hugged my father goodbye, and that's where the dream ended. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    Donna,
    For some reason I want to focus on the last part of your dream I realized I hadn't packed anything! I said to my father "I didn't pack anything! Things have been so crazy the last few weeks I didn't even think to pack. And I don't have time to go home and get anything." And I was crying and hugged my father goodbye.

    Are there any significant recent experiences involving your father? That may be help with the other metaphors in your dream {boat, prize, buffalo}. If you involving your father, that may point to a particular pattern.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the feedback. No, there are no recent experiences of consequence that I can think of. He had surgery recently, but it was just for his knees, nothing major or life-threatening or anything. And I can't think of anything else... We haven't taken any trips and aren't planning any together. But I'll keep thinking...

    Re: Dream about trip/ family

    Donna,
    The dream may describe a waking desire to quickly depart (air travel fast forward) from some situation intact (with family) toward a more relaxed (boat) time yet feeling the right preparations have not been made (not packed).

    Perhaps you're involved in a project at work where you're under pressure, either internal or external, to meet a deadline. And or putting in the lion's share of work and feeling the strain? Do you fear you will not meet a deadline or project goal, or is someone else having difficulties where by you must stand in for them?

    Father may represent the rational ordering aspect. Perhaps you overlooked some seemingly insignificant detail that now is a source of more serious issues.

    As always, this is only a possibility. Look to the days preceeding the dream for clues to possible meaning. Please respond with your thoughts.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy
