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.

    Hundreds of Black Scary Dogs

    Hi,

    I had some dream fragments and when I woke up all I remembered was:

    My arms were cut up with extra skin on the left one that was very sensitive to touch, and a friend of my mom's was cutting open the bandages, and underneath my arms had healed but looked awful, then I'm rearranging furniture in an apartment I share with my sis that has two bedrooms and three beds, one is in the way.

    Then I walk outside and there are hundreds of dogs every where, probably black labradors, I don't know and I am scared, so scared waiting for them to attack, I'm tense, Im walking on eggshells, they are all grouped together in bunches of five, whatever, something like that, they are all over the road i must take to get home.... in the midst of them are old classmates and a former boss just sitting there. I was very afraid, waiting for an attack at any moment, the air was so tense, and ominous and I knew they were waiting for me to make a wrong move.

    Help!
    Thanks so much

    May,
    I get the impression the dream is attempting to address deeper psychological conflicts, conflicts only you can name. There is attempts at healing but the outlook hasn't changed {perhaps this addresses depression you may experience at different times}. I think of Robert Johnson's comparison of 'apartments' to different complexes one may possess. Your sis could represent herself {and your relationship with her}. If so what is shared? What has been rearranged, perhaps because of shared experiences?
    If there is no connection to your sister then look at 'sis' as being another aspect of yourself. A related complex that may have some control of your waking life {control that may not be positive}.

    The black dogs, hundreds everywhere, I see this as unconscious fears or threats. The walking on eggshells may be a true experience within your life {figuratively speaking of course}. The bunches of five also, perhaps something you can name related to your waking life. Something that goes back into your past, perhaps something that has been experienced for a long time. The wrong move you are afraid of could be those past experiences that produced your original fears. That thing that made/makes you afraid.

    As I stated first off, conflicts only you can name. The periphery of the dream is what can be interpreted. The personal experiences are less evident. That is where the dreamer must have an ability to 'connect' to the possibilities being offered. Metaphors, where do they apply? The motif, the motif of your life?

    Re: Hundreds of Black Scary Dogs

    Dear Jerry,
    Thank you for this profound interpretation.

    At the time of this dream I was worried about a couple of external life situations where I indeed felt like I was walking on eggshells. Those situations are now in the past, but because I believe the external mirrors the internal, I am aware that there indeed must be an inner situation that because it was unconscious, manifested externally.

    Clearly the dream is drawing my attention to inner complexes and conflicts which I had been heretofore totally unaware of....since this is something that still does not resonate with me, I am waiting for more dreams to help me know what it is...I agree that it must be something deep and longstanding since I am unable at this time to identify what it might be...but this is how it works......the complex begins to become slowly conscious and in doing so its hold on us loosens....

    so, I must be begining to be aware of something that before I was not.

    My only guideline is to look at external situation where I feel this sense of walking on eggshells and subdued fear and try to understand what internal situation it reflects.

    I do have to say that although I left two very tense situations, I may have traded them for one that is not much better, and this is a sign for me that the internal situation is not nearly resolved.

    Thanks Jerry, that was a truly insightful and helpful interpretation and I am watching to see what unfolds into consciousness so I can transform my situation...

    Best,
