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.

    A Kiss and Killer Bees

    There was this new kid at school and we became fast friends...like within the first day. So we're walking...I think down a street. I felt this extremely strong connection between him and I, so I was going to find out. So I stopped walking, grabbed ahold of this head and turned it towards me and kissed him. It was like one of those movie scenes where the person being kissed looks like he/she wants to struggle, but eventually stops. Except it was backwards...at first he didn't struggle and it was great, but then he pushed away and walked away quickly.

    So then I was walking down a street alone and I saw him coming. I put my hands over my ears and tried to get away. but he ran and caught up with me. I was confused. Normally, something like that kiss would create such awkwardness that you wouldn't be able to talk to each other. I got the feeling that he didn't pull away because he thought it was horrible, but maybe because it was so sudden and caught him off guard. So we found ourselves at this old abandoned house with a bunch of bandies. The entire downstairs was like quick sand. I eventually lost him and went on a search for him. I found him hiding in a room, trying to scare me. At that point, I noticed an upstairs. I asked him what was up there, he replied, "Killer Bees."

    Any ideas?

    Steve,
    Are you gay? If so the dream may be addressing sexual attitudes and desires. There may be an element of peer pressures also. And confusion.

    If you are not gay then the dream is most likely speaking to aspects of your own psyche, a need or desire to connect with an aspect about yourself. The other guy is an aspect of yourself. Of course that too could be addressing sexual preferences and confusion over it.

    Let me know your answer to these questions and perhaps we can better determine which best fits who you are.

    Re: A Kiss and Killer Bees

    Steve,
    The dream may illustrate a social exchange of opinions or attitudes and moving away in a different direction from a common point. This sudden change of attitude opposes once widely accepted social climate, is perhaps a source of tension in relationships, whether family and/or friends. Overwhelming emotion perhaps being the source. Perhaps a better perspective could be found using refined sensibility, a combination of logic and feeling. A former dominant attitude led to forceful consequences that only now are becoming apparent. And that playing on unconscious fears is utilized to get you to go along with the program. Perhaps you guard this aspect of self to hide a highly emotional aspect for fear it would be met with a stinging attack.


    Kind regards,

    Re: A Kiss and Killer Bees

    Gerard...Your interpretation seems to make sense. I guess I am gay. I have only just recently told my best friends. But, I've never acted on either straight or gay feelings. So, I could be nothing at this point. But I feel no attraction towards women, as I do men. Okay...ha ha, you can see how confused I get. Either that or I'm just afraid to admit it in full terms.

    Ok, I guess the best thing to do right now is just to be completely honest and maybe the dream will become more clear. I get lonely sometimes. I mean, I'm 16 and have never kissed anyone before. My friends think it's funny. Though, as I discussed last night with my friends...do I have any right to feel lonely/hopeless? I am still very young. But I would love to have a partner to hopefully eventually love. Could this be the dream portraying that feeling?

    Re: A Kiss and Killer Bees

    steve,

    YOu dream seems to depict that you are very apprehensive about the consequences of engaging in gay behavior.
    YOu will feel alienated, isolated, in a qugmire and will be pestered unrelentingly by life.

    Anyway, if you consider yourself gay, I would hope that a dream would not be your reason. Many people have dreams that they are kissing or making love to the same sex and thy are not gay in the slightest.

    Re: A Kiss and Killer Bees

    I guess you're right. No, I don't call myself gay based on dreams. It's being awake that I know that. I wish it weren't true, but it's the way I was made.

    I don't see anything wrong about being gay, but I know much of society does. Like I was in the theater watching my friend and her boyfriend lay all over each other and realized, gay people can never really do that without ridicule and hate.

    Is that kind of what you were saying I was feeling?

    Re: A Kiss and Killer Bees

    Steve,
    Being gay is biological. It is who you are and there is no escaping that. It may be difficult to express that true self in many circumstances since there are so many blind and bigoted people who thing being gay is a choice. But to live otherwise, you could not live with yourself.

    Your dream is reflecting your true self. Including your desires. The kiss, yes is a desire for that love you seek. But the dream is also addressing those inner conflicts about your sexuality. The need to be accepted is universal. The upstairs in the thinking process. The Killer Bees are those stinging and perhaps hurtful situations you face, and will face
    because you dare to be yourself. To be anything less would be much worse than the painful experiences of denying your true self.

    Thanks Gerard and everyone else. It makes complete sense. I was pretty close to the meaning when I thought about it without asking...so coolness!

    Re: A Kiss and Killer Bees

    Steve,
    As dreams can hold more than one meaning...are you currently at odds with family, friends or even society regarding the US war in Iraq & Afganistan? The conflict in your dreams may also address developing your identity, your own distinct thoughts and opinions, separate from parental or societies attitudes about an encompassing socio political issue. During teen years we begin to develop a distinct identity separate from parents.

    Many thanks,
    Kathy
