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.

    Videos at Myths-Dreams-Symbols & Climate Change

    I hope many of you have taken the time to view the videos I have added to the Myths-Dreams-Symbols website. There are many good films about dreams and myth {and the environment} that provide new avenues of knowledge on these subjects. That is why I have added them, to best 'articulate' this knowledge. If anyone should come across a video or film or audio that may lend itself to articulating more about the psyche I ask that you let me know the source so I can add then to the collection.

    As most of you know Jungian dream psychology is a 'deep' subject and finding time to read and understand what is being said is often beyond comprehension or available time. And there is the 'interest' factor. If a video catches one's attention {as did The Power of Myth did me some 15 years ago} then one is apt to look deeper into the subject being presented. And what better way to catch some one's attention than a well produced video? I believe the next great thing from the internet is the availability of such films. They say a lot, not only to the waking mind but also the unconscious psyche. And when it comes to the matters of the psyche I hope that Myths-Dreams-Symbols is the place to go to learn about the 'inner Self'. The attention span of an American is a lot less than it was 30-40- years ago {the rest of the world is ahead of us, although losing ground also}. So there has to be new ways of getting the message across. By adding this type of cinematic review, not only do I believe there is a connection to the dying attention span but also a connection to the deep psyche. Just as Star Wars did for a generation in the 70s, so too will films and videos do for coming generations. I am thrilled to be a part of that and have found a new excitement in my creative Self by adding them to the Myths-Dreams-Symbols.

    You may have also noticed my promotion of the video The Hero's Journey in Film. This video captures the hero cycle perfectly, using various films to advance the ideas of Campbell's hero journey. What you may not know is this film was produced by a young man {21} who has discovered his 'Bliss' early in life. Oh, to be so fortunate! It is ironic that Ciaran {the young man of which I speak} has an interest in Campbell and Jung, and that our paths crossed. It is as if it were programmed to happen.

    Can we all in one unified breathe spell Synchronicity?

    On another related subject {having to do with the collective psyche}. I will be promoting more subject matter about climate change and global warming at the MDS website. I am convinced that the worse case scenario is very possible if we do not do something immediately about the denigration of our planet. Twenty years ago when I first read Al Gore's book 'Earth in the Balance I was struck by the possible changes he cited as being very probable for the future. That future is here and what we have discovered is what Gore cited then is not only happening, it is doing so at a much more rapid pace than anyone ever thought possible. Yet we place our heads in the sand and pretend it isn't. I have a warning for all mankind, a warning we all should take heed of because it could very well affect this generation, and not just the future. Be afraid, be very afraid!.

    This could very well be the new myth for our generation. Saving the planet.
