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 Friend's Curious Snake Dream

    A friend asked me about this dream (she's 28 & works at a day care): "I was at work, and I walked outside to the playground. I saw some adults I do not know in real life (one was a woman, but not sure about the rest). They were playing with about five large, charming, python-like snakes. The snakes were white mixed with vibrant colors like red, blue, purple, black, etc. I tried to warn the people that the snakes could be dangerous, but they wouldn't listen to me--they looked at me like I was crazy. The snakes showed their fangs at me and hissed at me. The end."

    Re: A Friend's Curious Snake Dream

    Ellen,
    Your friend's dream may be addressing a situation in her life were there is an attraction to some thing, but there is also danger in that attraction. It may involve 'playing' with something that could bite her. But it also may involve her real emotions and a need to overcome any resistance {the danger involved} and confront those emotions. The vibrant colors may suggest a variety of emotions that are tuned to her true feelings. Snakes are often thought of as dangerous but they also can represent one's true self, a self that needs to undergo a transformation to finally realize what it is within that is true. The danger would be in knowing that truth about herself. Overcoming the danger would be a triumph in her personal growth.

    Relay my remarks to your friend and see if they awaken any emotions that may be at the center of her dream.

    Re: A Friend's Curious Snake Dream

    She knew the snakes were not a positive thing, but she didn't understand who the people were. I think you are saying they are the part of her that is attracted to the snakes. Is that correct?

    Thanks for your input.
