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.

    Food and stuff

    food and stuff
    I had placed this on the discussion forum in error.

    i dreamt i was at an amusement park and i walked up to the lady in the candy booth and asked her to show me how to make cotton candy. She told me she had to teach me to model first, so i went through the motions with her. She quickly realised that i was very skilled in that area and went back to teaching me to make the cotton candy. I made myself a nice potion of pink cotton candy, packed it in a pink bag and left eating it. (Not sure if this part which follows is connected to the first but it was in the dream sequence). I am walking through town and I have a basket of long loaves of bread(like baguettes) with a bowl of tuna fish(canned tuna). I meet two beggars at the side of the road on the steps of a fancy building, where they were sheltering. I stopped to ask them why they were in that condition and they started to touch the bread because they were hungry. I gave them two loaves of bread and i gave them some of the tuna fish from the bowl.I was wearing a hooded cloak, like little red riding hood, did not get a color. My clothing looked like from olden times like medieval or biblical.
    Final dream of the night: I am in my mother's house(where i now live) and these two ladies i know(one I am awaiting a reply for a job, Aprylle, the younger is my cousin). They interview me briefly and for some reason Aprylle is staying at my home as a guest and she is eating constantly. My younger brother is on a living room chair folding clothes, on the table next to him is a hot dog, there are tiny ants crwaling all over it but she eats it. Then she goes into the kicthen where my mother is cooking, there are two eggs in the pan and she eats those too. Then she tells my mom that she will teach her how to make a dish from her country and proceeds to cook that. The house is messy and only my brother and I seem to make an effort to clean it up or even notice it is messy. She and my mom are having a nice time and i am in the kitchen cleaning and observing them. I heard a loud popping sound like something broke. When i turned around i saw my brother looking out of balance and shaken. The glass he was holding in his hand had broken close to his ear and the loud popping sound through him off balance. I ran to his rescue and put him to sit in a chair to steady him. He was not hurt except for tiny scratch and i wiped off the blood with my finger. I inspected his ear and face, told him he was fine and that he should have a doctor check his ear. I have no ideas what my mom and Aprylle were doing at that time.

    Re: Food and stuff

    Hi Janine

    thanks for posting - your age would help help the interpretation and the context of reply - here are my thoughts

    The first thing that strikes me in reading this dream is the 'model' archetype ,,, are you a model ? in some way ? Or is this a reference in the dream to your desire for perfection or to be seen as perfect, I am not sure; or as you 'only went through the motions' does this mean that you have thought that you have needed to do things but have not really put your heart into them ?

    There is a real contrast in these parts of the dream.
    1. amusement park: superficial amusement, candy (superficial food, satisfaction), and you ate it.
    2.Contrasting: the next part ,,, can you describe the next part ? to me it is full of biblical references + symbols (are you of Christian background?). The setting is medievil, hooded cloak, loaves + fishes,

    The rest of the dream may refer to the current state of you life or things going on in your life.
    The dream suggests that you are in the process of 'cleaning up the mess' of your inner world, or perhaps addressing matters in your waking life.

    Overall, the dream offers a real contrast - and I suspect that this is abot showing you how you have been living compared to how you might be living ,,, there is an imbalance in the masculine - feminine in the dream. The masculine are the beggers are they not? The constant eating and the amusement part both suggest an excess of the material world - excess feminine but in a materialistic sense. Time to get real ,,,,

    hope this helps
    please let me know your thoughts
    All the best

    Re: Food and stuff

    I am 36, just turned 36 at the end of May. Yes concerning the "model" archetype, i do have a tendency to want to be seen as perfect. Which would explain why I did not want to do that anymore. Secondly, the beggare are men and I am of a Christian background. Which is also interesting since a week ago i dreamt on two seperate nights that i was in a ritual, lying on a table there was a figure over me, he used a sword to make the symbol of the cross on my body. Lengthwise from my neck to my navel and then across under my breast bone. This same motion was then done again using oil. There were many people in the room watching the ritual.

    I am in the process of cleaning up my inner world and applying what i have learnt to my waking life. What should i make of the contrast?

    Hi Janine

    well you are certainly amoungst it ,,,, and as a friend once said to me when I was in the wars ,,,, "that's great you must be ready"

    I would prefer to mention that you look at the 'sign of the cross' made over your body in terms of chakras - and if you are not familiar with them then it might be a good time.
    Let me not be so subtle ,,, the fourth chakra is the heart chakra ,, it is the transition point from the ego to the heart ,,
    the other chakras line up - just as the spine does ,,, these are energetic centres ,,, our energeitic anatomy.
    My entry point to this system was also throught my dreams - personal relevence.

    Be great
