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.

    ancient tomb, fear, lady dead or waiting? Ancestor?

    I dreamed that I was standing at the entrance to a large tomb made of stone. It looked like it was carved into a large stony area. The walls and ceiling weren't straight and flat. They were uneven and had chopped-out look to them. The whole tomb was grey stone. It was an ancient place. Inside, there were rooms carved out to the left and right, so I knew it was a very large tomb. I couldn't see much more than a couple of feet into the rooms on either side, but there was a sense that they went on for quite a distance, although most of those rooms were black darkness. I didn't turn to either of them. I stayed standing where I was.
    I seemed to be just inside the entrance to the tomb, looking in and down.
    Straight ahead, after a bit of a downward slope, there was a stone ledge and a niche carved into the wall. On the left of the ledge (as I faced it) a woman’s body was placed on the ledge. It was slumped there as if it had been placed there sitting up but toppled over sideways. I had the feeling that it was placed in that position with much disrespect and replusion. That they wouldn't bury her; they just threw her in there. The corpse was clothed in an ancient but rich dress, such as you would expect an important person from the time of ancient England would wear, but I don't remember seeing any jewelry.
    The corpse was perfectly preserved, but very pale. The clothing was showing signs of eroding with time - it looked fragile somehow, and it was dusty. The corpse had long, dark tangled hair. I was frightened of it. The corpse was of a woman in her forties; she was beautiful but there was also a harshness about her. I felt repelled by her; afraid of her. I had the feeling that she had been put in there after being condemned for something; that whoever put her there had killed her and threw her in there as an evil thing to be rid of.
    As I stood there, the corpse opened it’s eyes and slowly rose back up to a sitting position, staring at me. The eyes were clear and seemed to be compelling me to come closer. I felt that if I did I would be coming closer to inescapable evil. But at the same time, I felt resigned that it was my fate, because I felt somehow that she was an ancient ancestor of mine. I felt that she had been waiting for me through the centuries. I didn’t want to go to her, but at the same time I knew I wasn’t going to have a choice. There was a feeling of expectancy about her, and she looked similar to how I looked when I was younger, except that her face was harder and colder looking and her eyes had no kindness in them, only coldness. The dream ended there without me making the choice of running away or going closer, because it frightened me so badly that I woke up.

    Re: ancient tomb, fear, lady dead or waiting? Ancestor?

    Hi Claire,

    I'll give it a quick shot here.

    I think the person you see in the tomb is yourself when you were younger (she looked similar to how I looked when I was younger). Often death in dreams signifies the end, and the beginning of something, a transformation… You also are at an age where women go thru lots of changes (both physically and mentally). In this case, since the woman is about 40, I think it might symbolize your younger self being dead.

    I think that dreams is about your way of dealing with the changes you are going thru.

    The size of the tomb stone might indicate you, or other people, worship, honor or adore this younger self. But at the same time, the fact that she was just left there (abandon with disrespect) (threw her in there as an evil thing to be rid of) seems contradictory. As if you adore who you were but at the same time you reject it disrespectfully.
    This might indicate you have mixed feeling about this inevitable situation. In some way you still love and feel nostalgias about the younger you, but at the same time you reject it violently as a way to move on to new things. I think you need some balance about this issue. Things are not always only black or white!
