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.

    very troubling dream about my daughter

    Hey, it's been awhile since I posted a dream but I had one that is really troubling me. I keep having these dreams about my daughter that worry me a lot, I need to know why I keep having them. The latest one was this: My daughter, who is four, was a baby again and she was sleeping in her crib. I went to check on her and my cat, who has been dead at least four years, was laying on top of the blankets and the blanket was covering her face. I got him off, pulled the blanket off and she was real pale and still but I was able to revive her. And it was in my parents house where I grew up but haven't lived there in 6 years. All these dreams take place there and they all involve my little girl drowning or suffocating but I always get to her in time to save her. I've had several in the past couple years. This last one I had after I had to leave her somewhere I wasn't happy about, the people were stressed and I was worried about her. So are these dreams just a manifestation of my protectiveness of her or what? I've had so many I'm paranoid about letting her swim, it's driving me nuts. Any insight you could give me will be very appreciated, thanks.

    rosebudsgypsy,
    Could these dreams be as much about your childhood as they are about natural worries you have for your daughter? They may be saying something about experiences as a child that are stuck in your memory. It could even be about an experience when you were very young that felt threatening that you unconsciously hold on to.

    What about your own parents? Were they good parents or were they the type who were stressed and did not always provide proper love and nourishment?

    The dreams are probably in some ways about the inherent protective nature of being a mother. But they may also be addressing deeper aspects of your life, such as the explanation above.

    Re: very troubling dream about my daughter

    Hi, thanks for responding. Well lets just say my parents were never happy people and saying they were stressed out all the time would be putting it mildly. Is that why these dreams always take place in my parents house? I never thought about it like that. Thanks, you've really made me feel better, now maybe I'll let her go swimming

    rosebudsgypsy,
    Yes, I believe it is OK to let her go swimming. You will be there to protect her and that alone should releave some of your 'stress'.

    Very often a dream that focuses on a parents house is trying to say something about past experiences related to your parents, or experiences in that house. And since the dream is always about the dreamer a child featured in such a dream is saying something about the dreamer. All that is needed is to determine what part of the dreamer's life the dream is addressing.

    It is probably at the same time addressing current fears about your own child. Past stress and current stress. Dreams attempt to help sort out both. You as a child and concerns for your own little girl.

    But the emphasis of this seems to be on you first. I got the impression that the suffocating and/or drowning, and then being saved at the last moment was more about past experiences. If it were current and more about your little girl there would have probably been some recognition by you of such experiences. And the people who were stressed could be yourself {the different aspects} or someone in your life, such as your parents, who were stressed. It is probably both but again with a focus on the past more so than the present. Of course an interpretation must be com0pared to the actual dreamer's life to be sure that it is accurate. Because your parents fit the 'stressed' mold it most likely was focused first on those experiences. Such experiences go with you throughout life {albeit unconscious until something prompts the memories of them}, or until you recognize them and put them into perspective. If you give more thought to those past experiences you may realize even more about that period in your life, and other traits that are developed because of them.

    You stated these dreams began in the past couple of years. Was there something during that period of time or leading up to it that may have provked your memory of past childhood experiences. Look to the time just prior to the first dream and determine what may have prompted these dreams. That may lead to other memories that could reveal more about who you are.

    Thanks, as always you helped me out a great deal. I'm not sure though what may have started them, I'll have to think on that one to figure it out, try and remember. Thanks again
