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.

    sleep demon

    The other night, I had a dream that so real and so scary, I had no idea if i was awake for asleep. It so terrifing because one of the most famous horror monsters was in it.

    It started off like it was a normal school day at my high school. Students were taking notes, boring lectures from the teachers, same old same old. But then there was an alarm going off and we were told the school was going on lock down. Apparently, a dangerous criminal got into the school and threatened the entire student body. You know who that criminal was, Freddy Kruger.

    That's right, I had a dream with Freddy in it. He kept jumping out at the windows of the classroom I was in, scratching the glass with his razor fingers. He was looking stright at me with this evil grin. I ran out of the classroom to avoid him, but he just kept following me. I was nearly scared to death.

    The scariest part about this dream was how real it felt.I couldn't tell if I was awake, asleep, or in a nightmare on elm street film. A dream never scared me so much before.

    Re: sleep demon

    Samuel,
    Not knowing more about your personal life makes it difficult to say what 'demon Freddie represents in your dream. It could be something deep seeded from earlier life experiences. Or it could be the normal fears experienced in the stage of life you are in {out of high school, having to face the social requirements of work and responsibility}. Since in your dream you are going about the daily mundane chores required of you, he may represent the new stresses afforded you since you are having to go through the transition of school boy to 'manhood'. Life's responsibilities is something you can't avoid and they can cause a lot of stress. That stress can be translated into the dream as a monster chasing you. If there are not any early traumatic experiences in your life { physical or psychological abuse, experiences, etc}, then I would look to these new stresses in your life as perhaps the monster that is starring you down.

    Re: sleep demon

    Wow, your amazing.

    Over the past 9 months or so, my life taken major turns. It began when my abusive father died in the hospital due to a stroke. He died only a few days before my ninteenth birthday. Since then, I've been in and out of social security and welfare offices. I had to get a job at the highschool I was going to at the time and drop nearly all my classes to keep it. And, this is only an estimate, but I've probibly seen a dozen or so social workers. I had only just graduated from highschool.

    From what I can tell, it sounds like Freddy is a symbol for the fear I have for myself. That I don't if i'll be able to handle this new adult life that seems almost forced upon me.

    Re: sleep demon

    Samuel,
    It does sounds as if you have a lot of 'adult' responsibilities in your life. Let's hope everything falls into place and the transition becomes a little less like 'freddy kruger'. You may want to stay away from windows for awhile, at least until you are able to put things into perspective.

    The abusive nature of the relationship with your father may still be prevalent in future dreams. They may take on a whole new 'Krugerish' style, this time dealing with that past relationship. If so you are encouraged to post those dreams so we can help with their understanding. But don't let the sudden adult responsibilities keep you from achieving those educational goals. If that happens 'Freddie' wins. That would be a nightmarish scenario and your adulthood could be even more trying. But I do sense a genuine sense of responsibility on your part. Doing what is required of you in the present speaks well of the possibilities for your future. Look at it as a start of your own heroic journey.

    May the Force be with you.
