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.

    Crab attack


    I need help with this please.

    I was at work and made a Joke. My father (witch is my boss) heard it and was not happy about it. We end up having an argument. I’m now walking on a street still pissed about what happened. I take my cell phone from my pocket and throw it with anger (my cell phone is paid by work). It ends up in the water about two feet deep. I look at it but decide to leave it there thinking: even if I get it won’t work anymore. Even thought I didn’t go in the water, my clothes are wet and I take them off. Now the dream moves to a room where I seem to collect little animals like frogs and all kind of insects. They have escaped and I try to catch them in empty yogurt cups because I don’t want free insects in my room. The task is impossible. I always see more of them and don’t know where to put them. I’m getting kind of scared now. Last thing I remember is that I was trying to get a crab from a baby cat’s neck. The crab was gripping his neck really tightly and the cat was hurt. I had a dream my the same baby cat a few weeks ago. In the last dream, the cat was gripping my arms and legs and I was trying to take him out the same way I was now trying to take the crab off of him.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Re: Crab attack

    Does the argument with your boss {father} have any real validity in your waking life? The dream may be dissatisfaction about your job.

    On a deeper level it may also be addressing unconscious concerns {consciously you don't dwell on such dissatisfactions-you merely do what is expected} about who you are as a person and your role in life {taking off your clothes}. The cell phone would be the means of communication between conscious and unconscious. You leave it {cellphone} in the water instead of facing up to realities about your dissatisfactions.

    Perhaps the frog is a symbol for transformation, a desire on your part to change certain aspects of your life {perhaps even your job}. The insects could be those unwanted aspects, the annoying parts.

    What does yogurt cups mean to you? Is it work related?

    Those things that keep you from what you really want have you by the neck and won't let go. At times these aspects in your life are so controlling they paralyze your ability to function properly {cat gripping arms and legs}.

    These dreams may be trying to convey deeper emotions concerning your life. Or they may merely be annoyances from your job and responsibilities.
