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.

    Exercise---and Be Happy

    Sharon Begley
    Newsweek Magazine


    Scientists are sticklers for not really believing what until someone explains how. That is, they’ll see that something happens, but until research reveals how it happens the phenomenon remains a bit dodgy.

    So it is with the power of exercise to spur the production of new neurons in the brain, improve learning and lift depression. Fred Gage and colleagues at the Salk Institute showed in 2005 that it does happen—even elderly rats have a spurt of this “neurogenesis” after a few sessions in the exercise wheel. And researchers led by Arthur Kramer at the University of Illinois showed in 2006 that the effect occurs in people, too, so that even a hour a day of mall-walking increases the amount of gray matter in the brains of the elderly. It also makes you feel better.

    Maybe now more scientists, not to mention the rest of us, will take the findings to heart. Researchers led by Ronald Duman of Yale have discovered that exercise causes the brains of mice to produce a molecule that acts as a natural antidepressant, they write this afternoon in the online edition of Nature Medicine. The molecule is a growth factor called VGF, which is active in the brain.

    That nearly ties up three loose ends: exercise, neurogenesis and anti-depressants. That's because, over the last few years, scientists have been challenging the idea that antidepressants such as Prozac work by increasing the brain’s production of serotonin. Instead, the drugs' real mechanism is to spur neurogenesis. With the new work, there’s at least the possibility that the drugs do so through VGF. The current study shows that “VGF is required for the antidepressant effects of exercise,” the scientists say. Interesting, the most effective treatment for depression, electroconvulsive shock, also increases the brain’s supply of many of the molecules that exercise does, including VGF.

    The next step is to confirm that exercise also raises levels of VGF in people's brains, not just mice's. But as anyone who has experienced a glow or even a euphoria from working out can attest, exercise has a profound positive effect on mood--and now we know how.

    Physical fitness has been a part of my lifestyle since 1980. I can attest to the above. The physical exercise part.
