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.

    The Power of Myth

    If you wish to view Joseph Campbell's popular 6 part PBS series 'The Power of Myth', I have all six available at the MDS website. Each video {interviews by Bill Moyers at George Lucas' Skywalker ranch} is almost 1 hour in length but offer invaluable insights into the psyche.

    In an effort to better understanding Jungian psychology there is not a better place to begin than Campbell's many books and lectures {many of which are available on audio and/or video}. Campbell is a master of articulating wisdoms and with his own 'learned' experiences added to that of the masterful mind of Jung {and all that encompasses}, anyone can discover those 'hidden knowledge' within oneself, as well as the natural world.

    Campbell was a storyteller, able to articulate Jungian psyche in a manner that is understandable to most anyone {it does require an interest, and a discipline and willingness to learn}. For the serious students of Jung I suggest a thorough examination of these interviews. Having a copy of the book while you watch the videos would be invaluable.

    Link: The Power of Myth

    A bit of knowledge that will help anyone with a christian background but finds it too restrictive should find an interest in the Gnostic Gospels, scrolls written by a heretical christian sect of late 1st and 2nd centuries AD, including the Gospel of Mary Magdalene and the Gospel of Thomas { 114 parable spoken by Jesus}.

    This is part of an introduction of realizing other truths, truths that will provide better spiritual insights and support than those of organized christian religions.

    The Gnostic Gospels by Elaine Pagels. Pagels is a wonderful resource for women in their struggles with self discovery. Her investigations of ancient texts provide insights to the early feminine psyche. She defeats the patriarchal attitude by empowering the feminine with her many books.
