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.

    thr crossroads and moon

    as i was just logging on to post my dream,i noticed gerards post on intuition ,this is some sort of meaningful coincidence to me, as the dream below i think relates to this the trusting intuition,
    i would be grateful for any comments ,
    the dream,
    i arrive at a crossroads and am not sure which way to go,
    i notice infront an area where birds stop off on their migration route,i cross the road and am met by a female who is excited because something amazing is about to happen,
    i see in the sky thousands of birds swirling,zinging back and forth,alot like the auroura borealis does,
    they twist and turn as if of one mind,
    it gets dark and i lose sight of the birds,
    but then the full moon comes out and illuminates the sky ,i can see the birds again,
    this was a most wonderful spectacle,i felt in awe,

    i am at a crossroads in my life,and as the dream shows,and i am not sure what direction i need to take,

    i feel that this dream may be pointing to that direction,
    in that i trust my intuition,
    regards cavebear

    Re: thr crossroads and moon

    My impressions of the dream are more toward its extolling you to stay the course, that is the direction that you need to take. And by staying the course you should 'experience' the journey, the journey being the destination.

    Much like my own journey I believe yours is headed in a certain direction {primarily determined by your actions but with fate as the final arbitrator}. I don't know that dreams will provide direct insights to that final destination, for some they do. Of course your dreams are much more adapted to a archetypal approach than most, so there may be a distinction in that aspect of dreaming. I tend to believe dreams are as much a confirmation of the journey more so than a dictate to the final destination. But again individuals are different and although dreams hold true to certain criteria, the difference in an individual may prove to provide deeper insights than it would in general.

    Either way I see your dream as positive. And I feel certain that things will EVOLVE and provide insights, intuitive and objective, to which direction to proceed when you reach that 'crossroads' in your waking life. The positive nature of your dream reinforces the positive nature, and direction of your life.

    Re: Re: thr crossroads and moon

    gerard ,
    thanks for your thoughts,
    i can see what you are refering to,
    the area of the experience in the dream was a stopping off area for migrating birds,and a place of revelation and wonder for me,
    as you say,it is not a destination,
    just a stopping off place,

    the journey as you say is an on going one,and i am not aware of any destination at all,
    perhaps thats the difficult bit,
    there is safety in the known,and i am aware of the conflict that occurs when the unknown calls,

    thanks for your clarity,

    Re: Re: Re: thr crossroads and moon

    after reading a few passages from the secret life of dreams,i am of the oppinion that unconscious content behaves a bit like the cycles of the moon,waxing and waning just the same,
    this dream i feel is a ref to the same waxing and waning,showing me what is going on ,ie the stage of this particular phase of the my own inner tide,
    the unconscious content represented in this dream seems to be on the ascendent,and on reaching its zenith will allow the conscious self to see it,(after being in the dark,unaware of it)
    as the passage from the book says,
    when the unconscious is in the ascendent the conscious self remains unenlightened,ie in the dark,
    this i feel has cracked the dream,
    many thanks for reccomending the book,
