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.

    People Ingoring me

    We are in what seems to be my kitchen. I’m making a bowl of cereals. There is my girlfriend, our roommate and their respective parents. I’m being polite and say Hi but my roommates parents seem to ignore me. Because they pay no attention to my hello’s, I start being annoying to them. I shout “So ok bye now” right in their ears as they pass by but they just seem stressed (like they don’t know how to react) when all they have to do is smile and say Hi. I can’t believe how people can be like that. My girlfriend is watching me and seems to think I’m stupid for doing this, but I’m like: they come in my house; they could at least say Hi, smile or nod or something. I feel like they see me as a crazy weirdo, but I strongly believe that my claim was right and that they were the weird ones and not me.

    Jp,
    Does this dream fit with the real experiences of your waking life? Undoubtedly there is symbolism that is addressing aspects of your deeper self but at your age the dream may be simply addressing truthful aspects of your waking life.

    Re: People Ingoring me

    Hi G. Thanks for your reply.

    I do have one question.
    Does dream become more symbolical with age?
    I always thought it was the other way around.
    Kids dream being more meaningful than those of adult.
    Can some dream be only representations of daily routine or event, and others be more meaningful?
    And how can you tell the difference?

    Thanks

    Re: People Ingoring me

    Jp,
    That's a good question. I won't say that dreams become more symbolic with age but dreams deal more with the inner self, the need and desire to sort through life experiences, as one gets older. A younger person's dream deals more with everyday experiences, the ego life, but still uses symbols and metaphor as the dream language.
    A younger person's dreams focus more on the ego life and personality develop. Also a younger person has less life experiences to focus on, thus the focus is on the outer ego self {which is still be being developed}. The exception is when a younger person has had some traumatic experience in life. Then the psyche, and the dream, CAN focus on that experience as well as ego building. If it was a very traumatic experience then the dream will be more directed to help resolving these psychological issues. A primary function of dreams is to help the dreamer work through life's experiences.

    Here is an example of how dreams different in this context. It is not a verbatim account since it has been a while since I have listened to the audio book {a great way to learn}.

    Carl Jung in his biography Memories, Dreams, Reflections described where a young man and an older man had the same dream. They where participating in a fox hunt and as they road their steeds they came upon a deep ravine which they needed to cross. The younger man didn't hesitate and jumped the barrier. The older man held up, deciding not to chance the jump.

    Jung's interpretation for the younger man was that the man was building his ego life and had to overcome these barriers, as a matter of progressing in life. The older man's dream was demonstrating that he had already achieved those goals in life and at his age did not need to take such chances.
    One dream was dealing with the future of the dreamer {younger man} while the other dream was dealing with the past.

    So the age can be most important when interpreting dreams. Just as with the gender of the dreamer. The two questions I need to know most about the dreamer is age and gender. If that is unknown then the possibility of giving a proper interpretation is much less likely.

    Children's Dreams {From DreamMoods.com}
    Dreams reflect our experiences and life concerns. For this reason, children's dreams are different then the dreams of adults. The dreams of young children {3-5 year old} usually have no real story line or any strong emotional content. Children around this age also frequently experience nightmares relating to their fears {strangers, monsters, loud noises, etc.} By the time children reaches their teen years, their dream patterns are matched closer to that of adults.

    For other important questions about dreams see DreamMoods frequently asked questions.

    Hope this shines some light on your question.
