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.

    Pregnant

    I dreamed that my house became a community house for every person at my school. My house was no longer a normal, two story house, but more like a large apartment building. Everyone at my school got paired up with someone else who had to be their bedmate. I was paired with a boy I know, and we were required to sleep together in a small twin bed. For the first few nights, we didn't speak to eachother, but then one night we began to cuddle and kiss before sleeping. Time elapsed very fast in this dream. I realized after waking up one morning (in my dream, not actually waking up), that I was pregnant, but I could not remember having sex with the boy in my bed. He said we had indeed had sex, so I shrugged it off. Suddenly everyone knew that I was pregnant, and everyone was really excited, but I was panicking. First I decided I would have the baby and give it up for adoption, but then I decided I wanted an abortion. All of a sudden, I remembered that emergency birth control pill one can take within 72 hours of having sex which will terminate an early pregnancy. I beg my mom to take me to the store to get the pills, but she drags her feet because she's in the middle of doing something. Finally we get to the store, and I go to buy the pills, but the storekeeper says I have to be 18. I start to cry and beg a man I see to buy the pills for me, before realizing that my mom is over 18 and can buy me the pills. I go home to take them, and am releived to find out that the boy I share my bed with is agrees that I shouldn't have the baby, and we go back to cuddling some more.

    This is one of the more vidid dreams I've had, but lately I've been remembering almost every dream, which I think is pretty cool. They're all so weird.

    Re: Pregnant

    Abby,
    The dream is most likely focusing on your fears about having sex and the consequences. At your age dreams can still be straightforward and you dreams will use symbolic language symbolic but less in an archetypal way than in a direct relationship to your waking life, forming an ego and confronting the system of peer pressures. In other words it reflects that natural aspect of being 16 and growing up. It is a phase of life. Have you recently had thoughts to sex, pregnant and abortions? The attention is on you {your house became the community house} and may indeed reflect recent experiences having to do with sex, pregnancy and the consequences. The apartment may represent a complex {possible fear} you possess, again having to do with sex, peer pressures, consequences.

    Do you have a current boy friend? Is there pressure from that relationship having to do with sex?

    Re: Pregnant

    Thanks so much Gerard. I'm not in a current relationship, but lately I've been "hooking up" with a few guys I know. What you say makes a lot of sense, my mind has been wandering a lot towards sex and pregnancy and abortions. I know a girl in my grade who people are saying is pregnant and will have an abortion. Funny that I woke up and was wondering what could possibly have triggered this dream, but now it seems so straightforward. =]

    Re: Pregnant

    Thanks Abby for your response. I believe you have discovered what prompted this dream on your own. Dreams reflect the dreamer's life and at your age more so the present than something that was influenced from the past {earlier childhood}. There is one criteria Jung says will help determine the accuracy of an interpretation. Does it fit your life? Seems it does so quite well in this instance. And it is good {and wise on your part} for you to recognize it. You will make a great 'Jungian' if you should ever decide to delve deeper into the world of dreams.

    "The dream is a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego- consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends.".....Carl Jung
