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.

    A Baby

    I dreamt I was having a baby, but wasn't necessarily pregnant...I just knew a baby was coming. I asked my son if he wanted a brother or a sister...he said a brother. I am telling someone, or I am being told, the baby's name is Matthew Martin. That came so clearly in the dream, the name. That's what I find so intriquing. Also, I get a glimpse of baby tears, which is a plant, in a hanging basket.

    I have one son, and no babies are planned! I am more curious why the name is so very clear in the dream.

    Re: A Baby

    Maureen,
    Such a dream, and not being pregnant or expecting to become pregnant, most likely represents something new coming into your life. It may not be expected outwardly but inner self wise it is something you want and need {as all babies are}. Since your son {here he is most likely to represent an aspect of yourself} prefers a boy, this may indicate what is coming or expecting is already in your possession. It is an inner thing.
    As for the name. Several possibilities. One is these may be names you have a preference for, or names you have heard recently that strike a positive cord. They may also have to do with personalities of strong character, such as Saint Matthew or Martin Luther King.

    A baby tears is a plant that has threadlike branches. This new thing may be something that once is left to grow will spread throughout your life. Usually such new things are of a positive nature.
    Does this fit with anything in your life, your outer ego life or more possibly your inner life? At 43 your are in the middle stages of mid-life where the search
    for meaning and truth are an important aspect of life.

    Thank you for your reply, Gerard ~

    Yes - meaning, truth, quality, and integrity are qualities I desire more at this stage of post-divorce and mid-life. The names Matthew and Martin somewhat symbolize those qualities. Feeling much more empowered and good in my own skin leads me to look at my life presently with optimism and gratefulness.

    Thank you for your insights!

    Re: A Baby

    Maureen,
    The feeling of empowerment can very much feel like having a new baby. It is a wonderful thing, especially at midlife when everything can seem to conspire against you. Take that empowerment and go with it, dont look back, and according to myth 'the Force will be with you'.
