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.

    Perfume Dream

    I had a really weird dream.

    I was looking at my cologne/fragrance: Issey Miyake which is basically my signature smell in real life. Looking at the bottle, i see ancient greek writting on it but I dont understand what it means (even though I am greek). Then i discover that the glass bottle of the fragrance is broken vertually in half. I become really angry becase its my favourite fragrance and i really wanted to find out what the writtings meant. I find the person who broke the bottle and ask him to keep it and give me money so i can get a new one. They don't do as i ask. Becoming really enraged I attack people and I end up shooting and killing my best friend.

    Can anyone please help me identify what these different parts of my dream symbolise?

    Hi Thomas

    well ,,, I think you have some work to do ,,, on your self ,,, are you up for it?
    I can start you off - but firstly,, can you take a moment to recall the feelings you had in the dream - really feel the anger, and the rage. Stop. Can you catch what the feeling was BEFORE the anger and the rage ???? When you get angry in real life (or maybe you don't because you are deny that side of yourself) ,,, can you notice what it the feeling before you let your self get angry.
    Do you want to understand your anger + rage?

    Well the dream is telling you how you are right now ,,, you are broken ,,, you are almost split in two ,,,, this is the current state of play ,,,

    think on these - and please post your response
    Good luck

    Re: Perfume Dream

    Hi, thank you for your response.

    The feeling before my rage and anger was anticipation. Really wanting to find out what the writtings on the bottle meant and because that was taken away from me its as if i thought i could solve the issue by buying another one. I believe your right in the fact that i do bottle sum anger instead of letting go. I do want to understand my anger and rage. Maybe i see myself as instead of getting angry i find other solutions which aren't necessarily realistic?

    However what puzzles me is that the focus of the dream was not on the rage but mostly on the perfume bottle, feeling really strong about it and wanting to find out what the writtings ment and how it was broken in half and the shooting of my best friend just came randomly.

    Hi Thomas

    The 'answers' to this dream will require some time to soak in ,,, that is the way it is. None-the-less you can get a lot out of this dream, Thanks for getting back and putting your thoughts to print - it may help a lot if you can print out your dream, and the responses and think over them. Write on the paper as ideas come into your head.

    As I said, this dream represents how things are now ,, not how they got there, and not necessarily what the 'answers' are ,,, the dream is showing you, in dramatic terms, how things are now.

    so the preceeding feeling was anticipation ,,, why ? why anticipation ,, of what ? How does anticipation get to anger + rage?

    In one sense the bottle is you - you said the this scent was you in real life ,,, and you cannot buy another one.
    'You' are unique - and note the link between scent, sense and essence ,,, the bottle contains the essence of you ,, your spirit if you like.
    Something has cleft it in two. I suspect that you are pretending to be a big man - and respond with anger and rage, and killing off your best friend - but underneath you are lacking something.
    Yes, the anger is there ,,, because something valuable is broken - you. And the container that you need to hold your essence is broken - and only you can fix it. And there is not an easy way - you can't 'solve the issue by buying another one'.

    You killing your best friend is like what is happening inside you - you have denied your inner best friend, maybe by no listening to him. He is likely more sensitive than you want to portray yourself to be to the outside world.

    Some other points -
    * the bottle was taken away from you ,, does that link into what has happened in your life ? Do you feel something valuable has been taken away from you - emphais on 'taken'
    * that you could solve the problem
    * the writings ,, in Greek and you are of Greek heritage ->
    This speaks of the custom-made nature of dreams, and also the mystery of dreams ,,, they speak a language we can all claim heritage to ,, it is just that we have 'lost', 'forgotten' or 'had taken away from us' the knowledge needed to access the meanings of our dreams.

    The bottle is not broken - hold that image as you go about you days and sense what comes up.

    All the best
    JC
