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 that puzzle's me

    Good afternoon, I wonder if you would be so kind to assist me. I've been having dreams in short story versions lately, but can never remember this. This specific one I do and I would like to know what it means, if you don't mind.

    The dream started with me swimming fast under water in the ocean holding a baby. I had the feeling of urgency because I had to take the baby to a destination urgently (destination unknown). I was also aware that there are sharks in the water. I looked down and noticed a big fish swimming close to my side. I wondered what it was doing there. The next moment the fish was in three pieces floating in the water in front of me. The first thought I had was that God had sent the fish for the shark to take instead of me.

    What does this mean? I am quite anxious to know, so would really appreciate your assistance.

    Looking forward to your response.

    Kind regards

    Tina,
    Swimming fast underwater may represent a desire or need to recognize or promote a new idea or aspect {baby} in your life. It may as much an unconscious attitude {still in its formative stages}or you may already be consciously aware of this aspect. But as with much in life there are 'sharks', danger in taking on this new aspect {emotional, financial, and/or physical}.

    Fish often symbolize the true self, true desires. The 3 parts may represent the 3 aspects of the psyche, body, mind and spirit. God would represent wholeness, bringing together all these parts into one. In the material world we often neglect those true intents of life {spirituality, creativity, doing that thing in life that provides true wholeness}. Often the real 'sharks' in life is social duty, doing what you are told or expected to do instead of doing what the soul desires.

    What new thing, again perhaps in its formative stages, is it in your life? You may not know exactly where it is going to lead you but it may be that thing in life that provides you with a balance, wholeness and your true desires.

    Tina,
    The Forum I created has as its first topic MidLife-The Way Forward. You may want to read this post to get a better understanding of the 'inner self'.

    Re: Dream that puzzle's me

    I am recently writing a pamphlet on a new theory in dream interpretation so i want you to keep an open mind: my hypothesis is that dreams are not symbolic; they occur because of physical, mental and psychic stimuli. In your case, I think it's mental stimulus. Answer this questions first: have you recently or frequently go to the beach? do you know someone that has a baby? or do you desire to see a baby? are you afraid of sharks?
    Do you see where this questions are going? Your mind simulated that dream from these set of stimuli: a)Likes: memories of unachieved desires, repressed memory, buried yet impressive memory or present memories b)dislikes: unresolved recent memories of dislike, buried or repressed memory of feelings of dislike. if some of these ring a bell, just tell me ok. If not then tell me too so I can analyse your dream further.

    Conrad,
    Good luck with your hypothesis. But I don't believe you will find much support at the Dream Forum for such thinking. Of course dreams deal with the physical, mental and psychic stimuli from a person's life. Dreams are about that individual life. But the language is most often symbolic. If you would go back read the 100s of interpretations provided by 'Jungian' thinkers I believe you will readily see that this holds true. Jung's hypothesis has become mainstream and with each new experiment into the psyche his thinking gains new merits. New science supports his positions.
    But I won't discourage your looking into other possibilities. Just the fact that you are looking, especially at such a relatively young age, is a positive. As long as you keep an open mind I believe truth will prevail.
