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.

    Seeing and Talking to the Dead

    Hi, In my dream I was reading the obituary and saw my Father's name as time flashed by I was going to the funeral I saw my Grandmother who has been deceased for a number of years in a casket; at another point I saw my Grandfather who also has been deceased for a period of time dressed in white and was followed by a throng of people who also were dressed in white.

    Re: Seeing and Talking to the Dead

    Three possibilities I wish to present. The first would have to do with your own mortality. As you age the thought of death becomes more real. Since everyone in the dream is older and deceased {your Father is portrayed as deceased} this could be the stimulus for your dream.

    Another possibility is the fearful thought of your father's future death {assuming he is still alive}. My mother is in the late 60s and I know that one day the inevitable will occur. That could account for such dreams.

    The third would have little to do with relatives and more to do with pure symbolics. Perhaps these relatives symbolize your own wisdom. Has there been recent instances where decisions you made were questioned? The ages of your grandparents and Father could suggest wisdom aspects of your own psyche.

    The positive aspect of this dream is the white attire of your grandfather {the oldest, thus the wisest} may suggest in the end there are positive aspects to the dream. Perhaps, if the dream is addressing the death aspects, you are slowly accepting your own immortality. White in Western philosophies is represented as positive {in the East black is more often seen as positive}.

    As for death. An old mystical Islamic saying comes to mind.
    When the angel of death approaches it is horrific. But when it reaches you it is bliss.

    I don't believe in the Islamic tradition of receiving '72 virgins' after death {suicide} but any mystical tradition has it merits, in my thinking.
