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.

    Dream stuck in my mind

    Hello :)

    I'm looking for some thoughts on a dream I had last night. I dreamt of a guy I know, he was dancing at a concert of one of my favorite singers. He had long brown hair instead of his usual short cut black hair. That's all I can remember, any ideas what it meant? It really stuck in my mind.

    Thank you!

    Re: Dream stuck in my mind

    Sweet135,
    Such a short dream provides little to work with. But one possibility is this guy {in your dream} is fulfilling a wishful desire {wish fulfillment}. Dancing to the sound of your favorite singer would be something you find delite in. Does the long brown hair improve the acceptability of this guy {who actually has short black hair}? With the black hair he is interesting but if he had long brown hair would he be the perfect dance partner.

    Lessons beyond this dream

    Let me point out once again the difference between an interpretation of a young person's dream and that of an older person. Sweet135 is 19 and still in the process of forming an ego identity. The focus is on the present, an establishment of personality and posture to meet the peer pressures in her waking life. Dreaming of guys is about her future. Fulfilling dreams is a goal we all possess in early life.

    If this dream were from an older person {40+} then I would look at it differently. An older person has already established an ego identity {well, mostly, although I find today's adults a bit immature, too many lacking a true identity} and begins to look back, reflection of the past. The contents of this dream would not be wish fulfillment but what should have occurred in the dreamer's life. Whereas Sweet135 is looking forward, an older person would be looking back.

    But never say never. Each of us is different. A young person can have dreams similar to an older person, and vice versa. But the rule of thumb is what I stated above.

    Carl Jung, "So difficult is it to understand a dream that for a long time I have made it a rule, when someone tells me a dream and asks for my opinion, to say first of all to myself : "I have no idea what the dream means." After that I can begin to examine the dream."

    Sweet135,
    May I ask how you came about choosing the name Sweet135? Is the number 135 something you picked out of thin air, or a number assigned to you? Or does it have some special meaning? The reason I ask is the number 135 adds up to 9. For me the number 9 is a very special number {representative of the feminine psyche}. It just may have special significance for you in the future.

    Re: Dream stuck in my mind

    chelsea,

    did you like the guy better with his hair long and brown? this is very important because it seems like you think some kind of change in his aura or personality would ake place if he were more in tune with your way of being, the things you like, thse way you approach life, who you are; basiclly if he were moe attracted to your ways, or to you, what would result in would be ths change.
    do you think he as sexier, with the hair?
    better looking?
    maybe not as attractive?
    what did you think?
