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.

    Snow

    Here we go:
    I’m speeding across the frozen, packed snow, on a snowmobile next to the river, but still pretty far away.
    We’re heading toward these big rifts, Dad and Amy (friend) and I, and Dad’s saying ‘Remember to check the snow. Only the packed snow is safe. Make sure you check it.’
    I cruise up a hill, but suddenly I’m falling. I hit the bottom, but I’m not hurt. It’s pretty high up, but it’s like a tunnel. The end’s not too far away. Dad peeks down, and yells for me to check the snow. I put my hand to its frozen surface, and yell back up that it is.
    All of a sudden, the walls start collapsing. I jump on my snowmobile and take off, just missing the snow that’s filling the path behind me. I come out near the end, but there isn’t enough space, I know I’m going to crash. I pull up sideways, but I go through the wall of snow across from the path anyways. It seals up my exit.
    Dad’s just on the other side, yelling for me to get out before the snow sets, but there’s this strange man in the cave, with a small orange diamond-shaped object hanging next to him. He asks if I want to see what’s inside. I ask if it’s the jungle, and think ‘I knew it! I was right! It is the jungle!’ I tell Dad I’m sorry, and jump through the diamond.
    This bit is viewed third person. On the other side is peace and tranquility beyond imagining. My hair’s down, and I’m sitting cross-legged, maybe meditating. In the background are orange, yellow, green, and red stripes, moving diagonally to the side. I open my eyes and look at me.

    Any and all interpretations would be great. ^.^

    Re: Snow

    Sera,
    Dreams of a 15 year old can be very difficult to understand. You are still in those formative years of ego building and whereas an adult has already experienced that phase of life and dream symbols often refer back to the past, it is not always true for a teenager. Your dreams are normally more about present conditions in your life concerning the building of ego and not so much past experiences {for which you have limited experiences}.

    But there are elements to your dream that seem to be addressing the past, possible experiences from earlier life that have not be confronted and put into its proper place {this is most often true about adult dreams}. To determine if that is true could you give some info about the relationship between your dad and yourself? The crashing in the dream and the dream statement "It seals up my exit" could be addressing unconscious experiences that have been rejected, repressed or forgotten. Plus the fact in the last paragraph you speak about "This bit is viewed third person" suggests the possibility you may need to "open my eyes and look at me". This could represent your present self and how you got be who you are {from past experiences in growing up}.

    If you will give some background on your life and the relationship with your dad that may help sort through the possibilities. Perhaps cracking the snow is cracking through cold emotional experiences from the past.
    And the strange man in the cave. Caves are often symbolic of unconscious contents {as well as other symbolic meanings that can be Freudian}. Let's determine the priority of the dream first then see where that leads.

    Also, having looked at your other dream post, there could be a relationship between the two dreams. Get back to me about this dream post and I'll see if I can determine any relevance.

    Re: Snow

    My relationship with my dad is pretty good, maybe better than most. We don't talk too much, but when we do he tells me, doesn't skirt about the subject. I suppose I resent him sometimes (he and my mom fight a bit), but other than that he's a pretty good dad. I recently learned something about him I found that I didn't particularly want to know, but I've gotten over it, and he doesn't exactly understand why his views on the world aren't mine, but you find that in everyone.

    Hope that helps a bit. ^.^
