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.

    protecting loved ones

    I have recurring dreams about protecting loved ones. It's never the same dream in that the exact same thing happens, it's recurring in that I am constantly protecting people I love. Usually it's my mom or one of my sisters and it always ends in me choosing to save them over myself. Basically these dreams always end with me dying. What's the deal? Why do I have such awful dreams? This has been going on for years and I really want to know why? Can you help? Thanks

    Re: protecting loved ones

    Dreams speak to us in a symbollic manner conveying often the dynamics of our inner being. The elements portrayed in a dream often reflect the different aspects and characters of the dreamer and how they play out in the dreamers psyche.

    Your mother, sister and other characters in a dream would reflect aspects of your self your own energy and ways of relating, Females often reflect our feeling self, as it is 'your' dream the feelings and emotional tendencys you attribute to your female dream characters are 'your' feelings, it may be your psyche has chosen these external characters as they closley relate to your own tendencys.

    To dream of protecting peole you love is to be protective of these ways YOU feel about things, about life, about your self, about others etc that you also see in your mum and sister but at the detriment of your own growth and independance.

    To put it another way, your mother in a dream reflects your own inner mother as well, your own internalised mother, the feelings and tendencys you share with your mother and how your mother relates to you, governing how you relate to your self. Though these tendencys have served in your development but at some level a part of you still protects these ways of being even though it may as a consequence be inhibiting you in some fashion and is causing you much anguish.

    Our mothers can be attributed with both positive and negative tendencys, As children we tend to put our mothers up on a pedastal and find no flaw within them, we believe wholeheartedly that our mothers are perfect by design and will not question their values or ways of relating if she is angry at us then it must be because it is something we have a done, when we integrate these ways of relating to others and to our selves we often continue to uphold these tendencys and ways of relating, justifying them and not questioning them 'protecting' them even though it blocks us in our own psychological development and growth.

    The recurring aspect of these dreams is your own unconscious self trying to bring attention to what is happening for you at a deeper level and to maybe assess where in your life are you living out others values that do not serve you any more.

    This is just my perspective take from it what feels right to you, best of luck Marce

    Re: protecting loved ones

    An after thought occured the dream may also be exclaiming that those feeling values which you hold dear to you 'love' and protect are costly, as a rsult ending in your own demise, being more specific with the dream and looking at the rest of the symbolism within the dream will reveal where it is these feeling values within oneself are being threatened.

    Re: protecting loved ones

    Wow I never would have guessed all that, it apparently has a deeper meaning than I ever would have thought. That helps and gives me a lot to think about, thank you so much. I'm very excited to have found your website, I've been able to control my dreams since I was a child, since finding your site I know there's actually a word for that. All this time I just thought I was weird:) Thank you very much again for the explanation. rosebudsgypsy
