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.

    dalai lama and the elephant

    hello, this dream seemed like a very important one, i dont know why, actually, like all of these that i sent. i m in room/building/hall where somebody is keeping an elephant, of course, a huge animal, in this small and indoor space and he s miserable and they decide to lock him, and i m sad and dont want him to be inside and he s angry and they put chains on him or something. then the next scene is where elephant in rage is braking the door, and in that moment there is dalai lama (the current one) in front of door with his people behind him, coming back from his walk or teaching, and he s surprised by elephant who s mad and braking the door and almost step on him and continues running from all of them, and i think people are trying to chase him...i have to say that i m not a budist and i dont practice any particular religion, i mean, i m not religious, and the only connection so far i have with dalai lama is that i m reading a book about him, and i have alot of respect for his teachings...any clues? thank you, maya

    Re: dalai lama and the elephant

    I think you are trying to keep some emotions under control and it is difficult. your are torn between two or 3 drives.
    one is a drive to let out some very powerful urges you have to go out and run free and wild: mindlessly.

    the other 2 drives seem to be almost the same as they are want you to control the drive. The difference is that one drive seeks to do it in a very harsh way: it chains the animal. It is your way of dealing with this. You don't acknowledge that the urge is yours and try to lock it up in a place that is much to small for it. THese walls are your own prsonal limits you have developed over time and from your rearing.
    THe other similar drive is the dalai lama, who almost is trampled. YOu feel that giving in to the mindlessness will trample some large general principles you believe in.
