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.

    re-occuring dream of being attacked

    I have been having this reoccuring dream of being attacked in my home. This is probably the 5th time in approx 7 months that this dream has come. I am always inside my condo in my bedroom sleeping when i am woken up by the noise of someone trying to break into my place. I am terrified by this and wait and listen to see if it's really someone breaking in. I hear the noise and know it's true and call 911. However, calling 911 seems to be delayed or i get put on hold. I have never seen my attacker before in the previous dreams however it is known to me my attacker is male and he wants to kill or rape me. In previous dreams i have only seen the shadow of my would be attacker. Also, in the previous dreams i am never confronted by the attacker i always lock myself in my bedroom or run out of the house desperate for help. However the dream i had last night was more frightening that the others before (these dreams are always scary to me as i wake up terrified that there really is someone in my home and i for the most part cannot get back to sleep for sometime because and also am scared to leave my room until dawn because the dream seems so real and leaves me very paranoid) - but the dream last night was the same as i was sleeping in my bed and awoken by someone outside at a late hour. I go out of my bedroom to investigate and i open my front door and see 4 men on bikes who pull up to the entry way into my section of the building. I immediately call the police because in my dream it was approx 3am and i was thinking that no one should be outside on bikes at that time unless they meant harm. I close my door and lock myself into my bedroom and call 911 and i am on the phone with the police who seem to think i am overreacting but i convince them to just please send a patrol car over to check it out. That is when i hear these men trying to break into my place. I am telling the 911 operator that they are now trying to get in and she is saying someone is on their way. Next thing i know the men are pounding on my bedroom door and trying to get in. I am holding the door shut but after a few tries they finally get through and i am staring into the face of my attacker. He has bushy blond hair and is very dirty and an older man about 45-50. He looks me up and down and i notice he has a long thin rope and there is another man behind him whose face i cannot see but the man who has the rope tells me that i'm a dirty little bitch. At that point i know his intention is to harm me greatly. I woke up after he said those words to me in my dream and my god i was terrified because again it felt like it was really happening. I live alone so i hate when i have these dreams as they make me think of the possible bad things that could happen to me!! As i said this is a re-occuring dream but in this one i actually faced my attacker and it was very apparent that he wanted to harm me. Interpretations please!!!!!!

    you may be dealing with the repression of urges. These urges may be sexual in nature. the dream's antagonist chrystalizing an becoming more interactive and human looking, not a shadow, means that the urges are beaking against your will with much more success and the urge is developing complexity, and dexterity as well as clearity to you.

    Sometimes, something like a garbage truck may be making noise at night, and frightening you. noises at night can set the tone for a dream. you may be hearing noises while asleep, and this might be prompting a dream where you hear a noise in the night and are frightened. This doesn't mean that the repression is not there, but you may want to sit down and think about whether your neighborhood is noisy outside at night.

    Thank you Carlos. I have never thought about this before and you are right about the noisy area i live in. My condo is literally right next to the train tracks!!! However, i love the sounds of the trains and never considered them a threating noise but it does make sense that this might be a trigger to the nightmares.

    well, maybe the image of a train barreling through the night might ignite the idea that someone is barreling into your home.

    Trains in dreams can also represent a libido, so maybe a connection can be made between the noise of a train inspiring the sleeping mind to create a dream with sexual intonations, like rape in your case.

    here is another thought, in slang terms, when more than one man has sex with one woman, in your dream's case rape a woman, it can be referred to as doing a train.
