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.

    NEW: Cataloging Dream Posts

    I'm in the process of cataloging all the dream posts, using the subject title as reference to the main topic theme of each post. As time allows I hope to catalog all 1600+ posts {plus all future posts} by subject and cross reference topics, as well as sub topics, so there can be a more precise search for anyone wanting to study the dream posts.
    I hope to design the pages in a fashion they are not only functional and useful, but also creative so to entice the psyche. That's the fun part of web design. Cataloging all the information is time consuming. Available time will determine my progress. I hope to have the first results on-line this week.


    This is how the first draft of the rough data looks

    In the posts is a lot of valuable information about dreams and their interpretations, and in my opinion a verification of Jung's approach to dream psychology. Anyone interested in advancing their interpretation skills, I suggest you read and study the dream posts, the interpretation{s}, and the responses to the interpretation{s},....and along with your studies of Jung, Campbell.... and all the philosophies, sciences, knowledge, and metaphysics they embody, I am confident the interpretation of dreams will become a known science by anyone who uses Jung's approach.

    I'm convinced that it is possible to interpret almost any dream successfully. With a lot of disciplined study, and a desire to connect with the intuitive Self, the dream begins to speak in a language that can be understood by the conscious mind. You begin to learn to read dreams instead of just interpreting them. There is an intuitive aspect to understanding dreams. But the hard work of reading and digesting all the knowledge I mentioned previously takes a lot time and energy. Physical and emotional.

    I look at it as part of growing as a person. It is an important aspect of the hero journey.

    Of course I'm prejudiced. And to be honest, I am not only the webmaster, I am a student also. I learn something new every week about dreams and the psyche. My journey began in 1992 and throughout that time I have never felt a need to doubt the correctness of Jung's process {Individuation Process} of discovering one's true identity. It allows and promotes personal and spiritual growth.
    As Campbell stated many times, the helping hands are there to assist. And they always do.

    The moment I stop learning will be the day I stop breathing.

    Suggestions and comments are always welcome. I want to make it as easy as possible for anyone to use these tools to learn more about dreams. And because of that I am always open to suggestions.

    Re: NEW: Cataloging Dream Posts

    Hi Gerard - wow this is both a great idea and a big task.
    One way to look at is - the sooner started, the less dreams there will be to catalogue ,,,
    Do you propose that the dreamer / poster catalogues the dream at the time of posting ?

    many thanks for this site Gerard

    Re: NEW: Cataloging Dream Posts

    Justin,
    It is a tall task indeed. I have cataloged the first 300 dreams and it does take time. I would like to break down each dream even more but that would be herculean.
    It would be great to catalog each dream as they are posted. I would need to configure a way to do that. I hope to catalog every dream and then create a search box. That might be doable. Bravenet has a search engine service that I may enlist once I get all dreams cataloged.

    Justin,
    Here is a page with the raw data I have put together thus far on the dream catalog. This info is based mostly on words from the Subject entry from the posts.
