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.

    delapidated house

    I was in a delapidated house. I think it was mine, or at least I had been given it. A friend is there telling me that I should build another level on top of the existing one. I looked at the roof and walls, and notice that they are not in good shape. I know that they can't bear the weight of another floor on top. I tell my friend that I am going to build a new house around the this one so that I could live in the old house while I build a new one. This seems like the best plan.

    Re: delapidated house

    Hi Ellen,
    The simple answer may be the dream is addressing your deep emotions about your appearance, and/or age {how a person answers the 'age' question can tell a lot about that person}. There may be a wish or desire to do something about it {cosmetic surgery, or better yet, better lifestyle to get into shape}. You may already have began to do so.

    But there seems to be a stress problem within the dream. Look at this possibility.

    It sounds {the dream narrative} as if there is something that may be adding emotional weight to your life {building another level}. Of course age/appearance could also be that thing causing the stress. But look at other issues in your life to see what may be causing 'another level' of stress.

    Perhaps the old self can't tolerate, {literally, you at mid-life, that part that feels dilapidated} or doesn't want the added stress? The walls are not strong enough to carry the load.
    A new life, a wish for many, may be needed. That would be the new house. A house, you having new and stronger walls. May involve strong emotions.

    It seems you may be facing a sort of an immediate crisis also. You can't live in the old house while the new one is being built. You may be at the end of your leash over this emotional issue. You may already have given conscious thought as to how to 'build this new house'. {seems like the best plan}?

    Re: delapidated house

    Ellen,
    After looking at your last posted dream that other level from this dream may be alluding to that special place in your life. Whereas the dilapidated house is those aspects in your life that have seem to be 'run' down, the special place in your other dream may be directing your attention to the positive aspects of life instead of the negative {dilapidated house}. I get the impression this dilapidated aspect may have to do with aging. Perhaps the special room in your other dream is focusing on the positive aspects of getting older, such as wisdom. And the dilapidated part may also be those waking aspects where stress is a factor. Does any of this make sense in your life?

    Re: delapidated house

    Gerard,

    I'm sorry, I may have confused you by posting this dream. Now I see how the site works...this was not my personal dream. I wrote it in first person, thinking it would apply to the dreamer, not to me. Sorry for the confusion. I do think the dreamer has a lot of stress.

    The dream, the "View of the House" is actually mine.I was curious about the two different types of house dreams. Thanks for your input.
