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.

    end of the road

    hi,
    i would be grateful for any thoughts on this dream,
    it came as a suprize,as my dreams have been quite possitive recently,thought i was getting somewhere.

    i am walking up a mountain path,
    it starts to get narrower and narrower until i end up on my knees crawling ,
    the path comes to a dead end,
    i am aware of the tremendous drop below me,and the path itself is very unstable and unsafe,
    i realize if i move, the path will collapse and fall away,i could not turn around ,as the path was only 6in wide,so i am stuck,and shaking.
    i think to myself,i have two choices,
    i can just jump off and die,
    or stay where i am, and starve to death,
    neither of which are attractive,
    i then hear a voice,it tells me that there is a third option,
    i can start again and walk a different path,
    the only way i could do this was to find the courage to reach up and grab the ledge just above my precarious postion.

    regards steve.

    Re: end of the road

    Hi Steve,

    Positive...negative...a matter of perspective. I choose to view all dreams as positive, as they provide previously unknown (to conscious) information that are starting points for resolution.

    The dream could be about what's essential to understanding a situation...background. Some notes follow:

    i am walking up a mountain path,
    it starts to get narrower and narrower [tapering to a point] until i end up on my knees crawling ,
    the path comes to a dead end, [dedicate/consecrate]
    i am aware of the tremendous drop [intense desire to push on] below me,and the path itself is very unstable and unsafe, [doubt, insecurity]
    i realize if i move, the path will collapse and fall away,i could not turn around ,as the path was only 6in wide,so i am stuck,and shaking. [indecision]
    i think to myself,i have two choices, [limiting vision]
    i can just jump off and die, [reliance]
    or stay where i am, and starve to death, [acumen]
    neither of which are attractive,
    i then hear a voice,it tells me that there is a third option, [recovery of fidelity]
    i can start again and walk a different path, [affinity with reliance]
    the only way i could do this was to find the courage to reach up and grab the ledge [reward] just above my precarious postion.

    This brings to mind the accident in which you were injured. What through the course of your recovery kept you focused on recovering, rather than giving up in the face of a most difficult situation?

    Re: Re: end of the road

    hi kathy,
    thank you for your thoughts,
    in answer to your question ,
    what kept me going, and in actual fact was the drive behind my recovery was this,
    initialy i was paralyzed from the waist down,
    the doctors told me i may never walk again,
    i was devistated,
    i loved to fly fish,so i told my self if i could just stand up ,that would be enough,it took me months of hard work and hydrotherapy,but i did it,
    and am now walking ok,

    i am not sure that this has relevance to the dream though.
    regards steve

    Re: Re: Re: end of the road

    kathy,
    i may have been a little hasty in saying that events around my accident may not have anything to do with the dream,
    your question made me go over the events surrounding the actual event,
    when i fell,i was paralized,i could not move,i was jammed in between some rocks,to add to it all,the tide was coming in,and it began to snow,
    my back was broken,
    my right leg was hanging off as it was badly fractured,
    the thing is,in relation to your question,
    i asked myself,what did i do when i was paralized lying at the bottom of the cliffs,
    i tried to stay calm,a friend had gone for help,running across ploughed fields,in the snow,
    finally a helicopter came,winched me up and flew me to hospital,(abridged version)
    this event and the consequential injuries changed my life for ever,
    i am stronger because of it, found a part of myself i never new existed,
    perhaps it is this that has relevance again now somehow,
    i have never repressed the memories of that day,so i feel the dream is not regurgitating a repression for my conscious consideration,
    but there may be something about that day,
    march 24 1985, that i need now,
    work ongoing.
    regards steve

    Re: end of the road

    Steve,
    Yes, I believe you answered my question, and possibly the dream message. Apologies I was unclear. I was thinking not of repression, but the dream message more akin to parallel experience of tremendous challenges, obstacles, overcoming and finding within what you need to move forward. Perhaps Psyche recognizes similarities of experience, presenting this dream and past experience in a parallel context? If so, then it is finding that within you, equivalent to what Campbell calls the 'reason to live', that is relevant to your current situation.

    "this event and the consequential injuries changed my life for ever,
    i am stronger because of it, found a part of myself i never new existed"

    Kind regards,

    Re: Re: end of the road

    kathy,
    your words are clear now,
    you used ,accumen,reliance,this i now understand in relation to my waiting at the bottom of the cliff,
    and especially,an affinity with that reliance,
    i saw the helicopter turning up,as the voice with the third option,
    many thanks for your wisdom
