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.

    Electricity in Dreams

    Hi All

    I would like to start a discussion on 'Electricity in Dreams'

    There have been two posts recently relating to this - by Susan and Martha; and the theme is recurring.
    I too have had dreams that would fit into this catagory, although they were clearer (to me at least).
    In these dreams I experienced the energy passing through my body ,,, as heat, or as a Force that pinned me down while 'energy' passed through my body These dreams were experiential ,, there was a lot of physical sensation, and not always pleasant, on the contrary, some were painful.

    I think these dreams are descriptive of the same phenomena / fact ,,, that the currency of the Universe is energy. Remember Einstein's equation E=mc2 ,,, ? If this is so, we are energy ,,, all energy and nothing but energy. Our human body is energy incarnate.

    Sometimes these dreams seem to be descriptive of how the energy systems are operating - this may mean our personal energy systems, or the larger energy systems at play in 'our world'.

    For those new to these concepts i would like to introduce the concepts of 'prana' and kundalini. Both of these are words that relate to energy that forms part of our metaphysical structure.
    Prana is our life force, the force that incarnates us. Here we are very close to the idea of our creation and related theories. I am referring to shakti - the swirling life force that animates creation.
    Kundalini - is another form of engery that is wired into our system. Everyone has this - however it is in potential ,, it is descibed as sleeping - as a sleeping snake actually. Some practices try to 'encourage' (I would suggest force) this potential of energy to awaken. Another approach is to acknowledge that everything has it's season, and when the conditions are right, this energy awakens naturally.

    Another area realted to electricity in dreams is the chakra system - these might be described as transformers of energy. The chakras are alos part of our metaphysical structure those parts of us that transmute or conduct the energies of the Universe - transfering the energy of the Spirit (Heaven) into the Earth (matter). The interface of Heaven and Earth is where we live - in one sense we are the interface : we are the sole : we are soul.

    I am suggesting that dream symbols such as - transformers, lightning, fuses blowing, connections heating up, power cables, constructin power poles as well as dreams containg inphysical sensations of 'electricity' through the body are all related to these themes i ahve described.



    What thoughts do people have?
    many thanks

    Hi Justin

    Yes what a valid question, I was wandering the same on reading the previous threads could electricity relate to the energies of our more subtle antomy? When reading marthas post I got the impression though that the electricity was relating more to a specific type of energy, and reflected more the physical nervous system, the nerve pathways also become conduits for this similar type of energy, Its almost as if the electricity pending on context reflects the excited nature of ones nervous system, The nervous tension one contains within, extreme states of stress leading to internal overheating and melt down, metaphorically speaking. Though i havent read the post thouroughly your reference to the transformer could well relate to the the chakra system as well as to ones ability to transform the energies we take in and give out in life

    In my own dreams and those of others I have looked at, I have found that Energy in terms of our personal energy and where our energy becomes consumed within by blocked paterns, walled off aspects of the self, or where we give our energy away in life has reflected itself in the currency of money.
    Now this is a sweeping generalisation but one that seems to hold true money also shows how we exchange our energies with others and where this has becomes unbalanced.

    The subtle flows of our own intrinsic energies both that of our meridians and chakras ive experienced in my own dream as light and particular frequencys of light, As im sure your aware though I will highlight for others reading each chakra resonates at a specific frequency and relates to a particular band of light and consciousness (generally speaking), dreams express the various bands of this light in the form of colour when drawing our attention to a particular mode of consciosness and state of energy flow within a chakra. Any change of the flow of energies through a chakra can reveal itself in particular shades and colours of light for example the solar plexus vibrates to a frequency that emitts yellow light. This mode of consciouness governs and manifests physically as our digestive system and is related to issues of power, personal power and self worth. Any blockages within this chakra such as patterns of fear or issues with personal power in relation to others may be highlighted as a dirty yellow in dreams, showing where this flow of energies is congested and the issues relating to it. Of course this again is a very general sweeping statement and all must be looked at within the context of the dream.

    Re: Electricity in Dreams

    Justin,
    Joseph Campbell's explanation of the Kundalini Yoga in his book Transformations of Myth Through Time is an excellent tool to learn about the Kundalini. Campbell uses his usual mixture of mythic storytelling and psychological relevance in order to put as simple as possible what the Kundalini represents. For me Transformations of Myth Through Time put into perspective the evolution of the psyche, from the 'dawn of mankind's mythic consciousness' to 'The Way to Enlightenment: Buddhism' to the grail legends which shows us with the power of the heart, and the search for the soul. Achieving 'gnosis' requires a recognition of the metaphysical aspect and this book provides so many insights to that acquisition. To thoroughly, and truly understand Jung one must possess this knowledge.

    And the simple thing about it is we already do.
