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.

    why can't I fly?

    As I've read in many of the dreams posted here people are told to fly in lucid dreaming. So when I find myself in a lucid dream I try to do just that but the very realization that I'm dreaming then makes it hard if not impossible to fly. I can do any number of things in my dreams but flying is not one of them. And it's so weird cause in some cases I'm already flying and I realize, duh, I"m dreaming and I fall. It almost seems to hinder me. I can cast spells and make fire shoot from my hands but not fly. I am very interested in your thoughts on this as it has me stumped. Thanks for any insight you can give me

    rosebudsgypsy,
    Perhaps flying as a metaphor is not something you are able to do in your waking life {applying the metaphor{s} as they have to do with your personal life}. Those things that you are able to control and do in your dreams may be those same things you are able to do in your wkaing life {again, applying the metaphorical references to the symbols}.

    Re: why can't I fly?

    if you want a tips on flying in your dream, this might work for you. as soon as u relieze that it is a dream and you start falling dont try to move yourself but try to move what ever is around you. wether it be the ground your falling to or the clouds passing by. something else the sense of falling releases chemicals in your brain that induce fear, basically the flight or fight response, which in most people they wake up. dont think of it as falling as much as sky diving and u got a parachute on ur back. imagining this, might be enough for you to relax and allow you to fly. each person is different

    Hmmm... well, I'm not sure why you can't fly. I think if you imagine the world to go poof and you were just floating in space then you would be flying in a way. Maybe, you should just try baby-steps, try floating or flying on a magic carpet. I think that would be pretty freaking sweet. I want a magic crapet. That would be awesome.
