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.

    high mountain and angry

    Hi, last night I had this dream which puzzles me.
    As a background:
    I want to go to a spiritual event in france but it is a lot of effort for me but I think it is a good thing to do.
    Today in the afternoon I am meeting with my boyfriend for the first time after one month of temporal seperation.
    the dream seems prophetic.How do you know that it is just a reflection of your own fears and not prophetic?
    My boyfriend seems to want to be in the relationship now.I set some limits now so that I might not again become so dependent on him affirming more my own space and independence and freedom.
    this is the dream:
    I am on a really high mountain looking for a spiritual event. The Karmapa(a high spiritual teacher) is coming to a distant place in the high mountains.I am there with my boyfriend waiting for him or registering for the event. They tell me that they won’t have the Karmapa visiting because it is too cold there. I feel disappointed.
    And ask where and when he comes.
    My boyfriend goes off meditating for the whole dAY. I feel angry and express that anger to a woman friend. I tell her that we had only that one day to be together and he is so inconsiderate to just leave for his own thing.I feel rage.

    Re: high mountain and angry

    hi to everybody, I just want to say a surprising thing about this dream and about my question about if it could be prohetic or is only fear based.at the time of the dream i was registering for a Buddhist course in France(not with the Karmapa but with another very important lineage teacher similar to the Karmapa).I never thought they would cancel the course but two days ago I received news that it is suspended because this Lama had health problems and can't travel just now.It was a really big event with more than thousand people.So the funny thing is that this part of the dream seemed to be prophetic somehow.Or maybe could be also just my unconscious fear it got cancelled and it was a a coincidence that it was cancelled or maybe both.What do you think?

    Re: high mountain and angry

    Margit,
    The cancellation was probably just a co-incidence. Unless you had waking notions, something that suddenly came up that made you think for an instance that there would be changes in the meeting. The dream is most likely addressing your emotional attitudes toward your boyfriend, with the spiritual course a backdrop. It you will take the dream and compare it to your current emotional life, especially that to do with your boyfriend, I believe you come up with a reasonable explanation to the dream.

    Remember. Dreams compensate, and seldom predict.

    Re: high mountain and angry

    mmmm,I don't usually have prophetic dreams so it might be a simple coincidence...
    The feeling towards my boyfriend in the dream doesn't fit with waking life now,because both of us are working on and aware of our old patterns and i feel quite satisfied with the present situation.Maybe it is just all about fear of falling back into the old pattern or rests of it.Don't know....well,let's see how it all flows...what do you exactly mean by compensation?Could you explain that a bit more?Thanks for answering Gerard.All the best Margit

    Margit,
    Here is a good resourse page that will help explain some of Jung's theories. Compensation is at the end of the page.

    thanks,now I got it what compensation means.margit

    Re: high mountain and angry

    Margit,
    The more time I spend working with dreams the more important I find it necessary to stay with the basic fundamentals of Jungian psyche. Although there are always variations to every possibility {I never dismiss any possibility, no matter how detached it may be from Jung} working within the framework Jung set out most always leads to the best determination.

    Another thing to keep in mind.
    Within every Jungian, there is a bit of Freud.
