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.

    cleaning corner and walking down the stairs

    Last night's dream: In this big hall there are a lot of guests and more are coming. Out of a corner I am taking out a bunch of old stuff: bags, cables, I don't know what else. They are a dusty mess. My grandmother (from my mother's side, the one that is still alive), comes to help me. I get some spray and cloth to start cleaning these things.

    Next, I am in a wedding dress. People come and greet me as they leave. The brother-in-law's wife is standing by me with some other women. A white and short haired woman of late 60s, comes to greet me and says that I should not worry because there are many cases of couples trying to have a child and not having one in the first year. I got angry at her comment and turned to my brother-in-law's wife ready to accuse her about spreading the word around. She (the brother's wife) and the other women left in a hurry, but I followed them and reached them while climbing some stairs. Why did you skip away? I asked. One of the women said: well it's true...we really leaved fast.
    I saw the women disappear, and I had to take the stone stairs to get down again. The stairs were narrow and blocked with cushions that I had to remove. At some point, it became impossible to walk down. Suddenly I see a small, open elevator that was sent to me. I get on it and start going down. The guardian of this elevator was an old man who greeted me with a smile when I reached the ground. Then I started walking again.

    would appreciate your thoughts on this,

    Thanks

    Re: cleaning corner and walking down the stairs

    Despite you desiring to move to a new sense of being and life, you are distracted and concerned with the past.

    You have some concern that this new life may not bare fruit and that it will take work. You seem to have your doubts about your future in-laws as well.

    The dream seems to say that you feel that the way to overcome this is to chase away these concerns: address them, meet them head on. But then you return to base feelings, which give you comfort.

    DO you feel you are rushing something?

    Carlos,
    all your assumptions make sense to me. And the answer to your question whether I am rushing something, is I don't know. I look at the past less than I used to do before, but I am still connected with what happened to me earlier in life. And I continue to have a sense of doubt on whether marrying this man and becoming part of his family is the right decision. I also fear bearing a child and I fear it won't happen and it will be a huge delusion for both. I don't trust my in laws, especially the woman in the dream.

    Anyway, my base feelings give me comfort as you say, and what has changed with time, is exactly this: I am more able to recognize my feelings and calm myself down.

    Carlos,

    All your arguments make sense to me. I am still connected to the earlier events in my life, and until lately I had doubts on whether I should marry the man I am with. Right now, I have no doubts about the marriage-to-be. I fear that I won’t have a child, and I fear bearing a child. Maybe I’m not ready yet to be a mother. It is true though, that I have learned to recognize my fears and try to reach my comfortable “basement”.

    Thanks

    Re: cleaning corner and walking down the stairs

    acknowledging your feelings and past is a good step to take. Sometimes negative events in the past mold our personality if they go un cknowledged and are allowed to find a corner in our psyche to exist.

    Cleaning out these episodes and influences is a positive step to take. What needs to happen is that you need to realize that the negative events don't make you who you are. you make yourself.

    For example( and this is a random example not what I think has happened to you):
    Say a father seperates from his family and never gares to look after his child. Some children will internalize this and feel worthless through out there lives. THis will cause them to make bad personal decisions in their romantic life. But, if they realize that their father's decision is not something that they should internalize in that way, and realize they are not worthless, they can make better decisions.

    So, yes acknowledge the feelings; but don't let the events come to rule you, or undermine you.
