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.

    Fertility

    I had a strange dream that I am trying to understand how & why it fits into my life. Background info I am happily married and have two children. My husband cannot have anymore. The dream starts off in a farming community very small &all the women are required to have their breasts removed and tubes tied. I am pleading with the mayor of the town to spare me such a fate. I start bargaining with him because I cannot imagine a life without breasts or without being able to bear children. The mayor tells me that if I buy a house in the town he will spare me? I would love to hear some thoughts on this. Thank you!!!

    Jana,
    Do you possess strong nurturing qualities? Was it your desire to have more children? Farms are often symbolic of growing things {children?} and breasts are the tools for nurturing what you grow. The bargaining may be the need/desire to resolve these nurturing conflicts within. Buying a house in the town would represent 'buying' into the inevitable realization that you can still grow as an individual but with the need to accept life as it is {not having more children}. Or there is the possibility of acquiring children by other means. Have you thought of adoption?

    Thanks for your insight. The dream does make sense now. I wanted more children, however my husband did not. This was 8 years ago. Just recently I caught up with some school friends who all just had their first within the last 9 mths. This is what probably triggered my dream.

    Jana,
    Thanks for your response. Your dream and reply helps us better understand how dreams address emotional issues by using metaphors that show your true inner feelings. The language may seem odd to some but in the world of the dream symbolic metaphor is the way the unconscious provides insights to how you really feel.
