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.

    in my friend's dream

    I have to share this dream of a friend of mine. We work in the same office and have a very friendly relationship. I am a senior and she is a junior, but we both work hard. Although she is good at her job, she has not received the proper recognition. While I just yesterday got a promotion and also a very generous bonus for a task I completed and I told her. Today she came telling me this dream of hers:

    “The boss, you and I are in a strange house. He comes and kisses you in the mouth, and I was shocked. I wasn’t shocked because of you, but because of him. How can he do this to his wife?”

    I suppose the dream tells that she is very involved at the moment with my raise and my promotion. But what does a romantic kiss mean in her dream? Is it symbolic? Or a reflection of her assumptions in real life? Any thoughts appreciated.

    Thanks

    Re: in my friend's dream

    in a dream "a kiss is just a kiss" in hollywood and in song. In a dream this is not always so. She may just feel that you have a closer relation to him than she does.

    In some cases a kiss brings life to another. She may be replaying the promotion as a kiss in her dream because it gives you life of sorts as you are benefitting from the impression you have made on him.

    Her being shocked about the betrayal to his wife might be symbolic of him having a higher duty to other things rather than favoring you so openly.

    I think she is trying to adjust to this. Its a good thing for everyone. Her sub is helping her base urges which make her competitive.

    Maybe right now it seems to her like there isn't a lot of room for others to make progress. This is not necessarily because of you , but maybe the company just doesn't have the capacity.

    Then again, she may be picking up that he has ulterior motives too: she could be right or wrong about this.

    Its hard to interpret a dream on heresay. The person that had the dream should be posting and she should do so in privacy, so that she is not afraid to express her feelings and make the proper adjustments once she becomes aware of her feelings.

    THe sub sometimes is like a wild animal trying to unleash itself. It is not always determinant of what a rational, aware person wants to do. so, just caus eshe dreams it, does not mean she will act on it. Sometimes that is the purpose of a dream.

    You can't hold someones sub against them. Hold their conscious behaviour against them.

    Hi Carlos,

    thank you for your thoughts. They all make sense, but as you say, the dreamer herself should be posting in order for this process to be helpful. She does not use this forum and has little relation to psychology, although she has good intuition and is very intelligent.

    Thanks again for the insights,

    Re: in my friend's dream

    Carlos,

    I want to add some input to your interpretation given my point of view. I am not the dreamer, but I know some of the background information, and I am involved in this part of the dreamer's life:-)

    "She may just feel that you have a closer relation to him than she does... She may be replaying the promotion as a kiss in her dream because it gives you life of sorts as you are benefitting from the impression you have made on him." I believe this is a correct interpretation.

    Your thoughts about her trying to adjust to this through the unleashing of the sub, are so right on.

    "Maybe right now it seems to her like there isn't a lot of room for others to make progress. This is not necessarily because of you , but maybe the company just doesn't have the capacity." I think it has been also my case, until this month, when I was promoted. The company lacks the capacity - it is a correct assumption.

    "Then again, she may be picking up that he has ulterior motives too: she could be right or wrong about this." I think she consciously knows this is not the case. What strikes me is that I have had similar dreams in the last months. I dreamt of him kissing me.
    In real life, I think the two of us (the boss and I), play a dominance game, where I leave him reign in his domain. The results of the "game" have created a mutual trust and respect and a "I read your thoughts" state, which I think creates the confusion on how to name the feelings between us. My colleague certainly perceives this intuitively and she is confused too I guess.
    More interesting, is that she and I recently have discussed on future plans for setting up our own company! Anyway, sorry if some content is not directly related to the dream. She had to be part of this interpretation, but she doesn't know, and I should probably stop using this as a way to gain more insights for myself.

    Thanks for your patience,

    Elona
