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.

    I recently became a doctor in my area of study. Nevertheless after the event, which went very well I had a dream that I was to defend my thesis. At the beginning of the defence a friend of mine took over (I like her a lot but do not think she is very clever) in any case she was doing a terrible job answering the questions. Eventually I took over and felt that I was impressing people, but one commission member in particular was not happy abotu my performance. At the end of the defence, after the examination commission had left the room to decide about my defence, the examinor I knew was unhappy informed me that I would not become a doctor because I had not filled in a form properly - which she presented to me. I knew this was because of some other reason but not exactly what. Why would I dream that I was not successful at my defence when I really was???

    Re: defence

    What is it in your life where you may feel a need to be defensive?

    It may be that you are feeling pressures from the expectations of your new position. There may also be a bit of 'comeuppance' to the fact you are now a doctor {not very clever}. Have you recently spent some time trying to impress someone, or perhaps even yourself. Although it is a tremendous achievement {some gloating is due for sure}, there may be something in your life that is not as satisfactory as you wish or it should be.

    If you will look at the different people in your dream as aspects of yourself you may recognize familiar experiences in your waking life. Judging yourself at this important time in your life, especially the new responsibilities and expectations, can be expected. It may be like having a dream where you are constantly late for work. It is a fear of something you may or may not control but it is reflective of those true emotional aspects. Centering yourself, not taking things too seriously may be what is needed.
