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.

    reoccurring dream

    Hi, I have a complex reoccurring dream that first started when I was about 7 or 8. It's kind of a lot of detail so here goes......I had this dream three times in my life the first when I was younger. In the first one I am at my aunts house in the front yard and there is about hundred people walking down the street carrying their personal belongings. I get the feeling that they are all very sad no one is speaking and I have no idea where they are going. I'm very uneasy in this dream though. Then a man stops and looks right at me and I am terrified then I wake up. The second time I have this dream I was in my teens and it takes place in either Egypt or the Middle East I'm not sure. I'm at a market in the middle of the desert and again I see about a hundred people walking and not speaking. I don't remember this one in as much detail as the first but I remember the uneasy feeling was there. The last time I had this dream was about two years ago this time it was in modern times and again there were people walking but this time I knew where they were going and I joined them. We were going to a bridge because a flood was coming and it was the only safe place, I woke up when we made it to the bridge. I'm not sure if all three are related but there seems to be the reoccurring theme of a bunch of somber people walking with all their things to some location unknown. If anyone has any idea what this could be about I would really appreciate any in put, thank you.

    Re: reoccurring dream

    Alisha,
    Recurring dreams are often an indication that there are unresolved emotional issues in your life. And since the first time this dream occurred was at the age of 7 or 8 I would begin the 'inner' search there. The terminology you use to describe aspects of the dreams may be telling also. Sad, uneasy, terrified.

    The bridge may well be that experience from your past that needs crossing {from the unconscious to consciousness}. The flood could be realizing the affect of these experiences {unresolved emotional issues}. And because these dreams have followed you into adult life they probably have some unconscious control on how you perceive life.

    Dreams are often bridges to such unconscious experiences {forgotten, repressed, ignored experiences in your life}. Perhaps by going back to your earliest memories you will uncover what these dreams are trying to communicate about your emotional life. Take this trip back in time and let me know what you come up with. Remember, it may be a past experience but it is strong enough to reamin through all these years.
