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.

    Myths-Dreams-Symbols ... Approaching 1 Million Visitors

    It has been almost 10 years since I first gave birth to Myths-Dreams-Symbols {1998}. Looking at hit counter on the front page I see that we are about to reach the 1 million mark in visitors. Although that may be 'minor league' compared to the mega sites on line, it is indeed a milestone for a site that is focused the subject of the psychology of dreams. Hopefully the next million visitors will have an even greater experience when viewing these pages.

    Note: All of a sudden the number of visitors in the last three days has sky rocketed. On Friday the count was 992,592. As of this post the number has risen to 998,125. For the past couple of years I have experienced an average of about 300 visitors a day. For the past few days that number is averaging 1700 visitors. I have yet to discover why the increase. I have redesigned the front page {for the zillionth time} but I don't know if that would explain the increase. And I have added videos to the page with the lead in to the History Channel's Star Wars 30th aniversary. I did notice a big increase in visitors last night while that program was on the air. Another puzzle to unravel.

    Hi Gerard

    This is great news, and some concrete feedback to you for the hours that you put in. I some times think that your family / friends must either think that you are crazy, eccentric or just toleratingly go, 'ah yes well Jerry has his ideas ,,,'

    If the National Radio here is a guide, I note a huge shift in the populace.
    It seems that whenever I turn the radio on there is a programme about spirituality, philosphy, music and sacred spirit, the work of shakespearefrom a philosophical / psychological perspective ,,,

    Even the State Art Gallery had an exhibition of 'The Goddesses' - with a correspending hour long programme on National radio ,,, can you imagine the general populace listening to / having access to themes of the dark goodess / erotic love / shakti etc ,,,

    For those interested - this is the site to browse -

    Look at "The Philosophers Zone"; "The Spirit of Things"

    Ugh my access is too slow to do this efficiently ,,, sorry
