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.

    strange dreams during a "nap"

    Hi guys!

    This morning I woke early to study for an exam in statistics. After falling asleep trying to study, I decided to go back to sleep for 15 minutes. During that time I experienced some strange dreams. One I woke up in my dream, but I couldn't see or move, I tried to open my eyes and they wouldn't open. I got scared and tried to force myself awake and I was able to wake up, realizing the previous "paralyzing experience" was a dream.
    I went back to sleep and dreamt of my mother-out-law (MOL) (my ex-husbands mother). She died around Easter this year. In the dream she was finding and getting seated at some kind of stage event, and was sitting with Don Rickles (the old comedian famous for put-downs). She was happy and I remember thinking what a treat to see her again, I called her name and she turned to me and smiled and said "what are we doing here?" and when I tried to talk with her more, calling her name, she kept looking off toward Don Rickles ignoring me calling her name. I woke up.
    Thanks for reading and considering my dream.

    Re: strange dreams during a "nap"

    Lisa,
    While 'nap dreams' are often different that 'sleep dreams', they do tend to express what is on the mind of the dreamer. Studying for an exam, even though you may not feel any difficulties with your studies, may be at the core of your nap siesta. Forcing yourself to study may be the underlying cause.

    The second dream could also be due to your exam studies. Instead of concentrating on what needs to be done, there is the desire for a different aspect instead, laughter. Your mother-'out'-law may represent your older and wiser self. Studying is normally something you do when you are younger, and something you rather not do when you get older. Why the inclusion of Don Rickles {he is a favorite of mine also} is probably due to personal reasons. His inclusion could be that to be taken funny he must not be taken seriously {he is a comedian who picks on his audience}. Ignoring the studies {your ex MIL}
    may mean not taking them seriously or serious enough

    As I stated earlier, naps are often different from normal sleep dreams. They are able to tune in to the more current emotional forces, 'in the present', {studying for an exam} but do not normally address deeper issues that occur during nighttime dreams.

    The question you may ask yourself; would you rather be doing something else than studying for this exam? Or are you taking your studies serious enough attention? If the answer is you are not, then that could be the message of the nap dream.

    Gerard,

    It's the middle of summer, of course I would rather be doing other things besides school. I do take my studies rather seriously, and maybe it was a guilty consience trying to rouse me from my nap and back to studying?

    What about the first dream, any thoughts about that?

    Lisa,
    I woke up in my dream, but I couldn't see or move, I tried to open my eyes and they wouldn't open. I got scared and tried to force myself awake and I was able to wake up, realizing the previous "paralyzing experience" was a dream.

    This dream does seem to be addressing a deeper issue but could merely be a nap dream which promotes urgency, where there is no real urgency {such as the need to study}. If it were a nighttime dream the intent of the dream would be one of addressing a past 'paralyzing experience', something that you may have repressed. Is there such an experience, something traumatic in your past that you have not properly addressed? If so then this may be the intent of the dream; waking you up to this past experience so you can put it in its proper place {the past experience}.

    If not then look to the first explanation. I have had nap dreams that tended to over emphasis a subject although there was no real urgency.

    Re: strange dreams during a "nap"

    Well dreams to me exist in the here and now. Drea,ms often replay and work through events that have just happened. So if the only thing that happened when you were awake was revise then its likely that the dream relates to thoughts going throuigh your mind during that time period. Try putting the dreamn together. the dream features put downs and motjher in laws. The dream thus is probably going through yiour own negative feelings about the exam. that yiou are perhaps feeling neagtive and expecting failure and this put downs

    Re: strange dreams during a "nap"

    You wanted to wake up early to study but then let yourself fall back to sleep. So your spiritual guardian decided to let you feel what it is like to want to wake up but not be able to. This was supposed to increase your desire for staying awake to study.

    But you fell asleep again so your guardian showed you she was busy and didn't want to take you to the dream worlds.

    She appeared as a deceased person, which is to represent that she is a person on the other side of the veil between this world and the next. And she was busy getting positioned to watch the stage show of earth life beside a man who puts people down as his profession.

    This is all to say that she has finished looking after you in the dream worlds for the night and she is now positioning herself next to the earth guard to watch you do your thing on the earth.

    Each person has a positive and a negative angel with them, or an angel and a devil. The devil is the earth guard and the one that tones down spiritual consciousness so that the earth world remains as a hard school and not a heaven.

    Your guardian was showing you that she was busy positioning herself next to the negative one in order to observe earth life.

    At night the negative one stays with the body while the positive one takes the soul to the dream worlds and beyond. Whenever the soul returns to the body the positive one has to seat herself beside the negative one to watch the soul experience the earth school.

    When you went back to sleep the second time your guardian showed you she is a person on the other side of the veil, or a spiritual person, and she was busy trying to get seated to watch the stage show of earth life besides a negative entity.

    She said "What are we doing here", and that meant you were not supposed to be there.

    When you tried to talk to her she kept looking at the negative one and ignored you.
    This is because on the earth the positive angels have to be very conscious of the negative ones all the time and can't interact with their human souls as much as they'd like to.

    So all together you were being prompted to stay awake for study and not fall to sleep where your guardian would have to once again take charge of you.

    Some Tibetan lamas believed that if one falls to sleep during the day the negative guards get them, so they always try to stay awake.
