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.

    wall of water, feeling scared

    Hi there,
    hope you can help me with this one, I woke up crying because I have dreamed similar stuff like this before, for more than a year now, and it makes me quite sad, that I haven't moved on.

    I remember being inside my family home, but it was different from the home in my waking life.
    I remember seeing a wall, either of brick or timber frame, but actually inside it held water, so really it wasn't a real wall. Anyway a friend or my father noticed that the wall was bulging, and in a matter of time, the wall collapsed, and all the water flooded the room. After that I remember making a comment to my mother which she didn't like. She wanted to hit me because of that, and I remember seeing my brother making something out of thin branches of a plant to hit me with. All I kept saying is "I'm 28" or something like that, implying that I am old enough to say what I mean.
    That's all I remember.

    Now this dream upset me because I dream often of my mother screaming at me, wanting to hit me and being dissapointed with me.
    In my waking life none of this happens, we have a reasonably good relationship even though a couple of years ago she was angry that I was going out with my boyfriend, that she didn't approve of.
    I'm upset because it's been years since that situation when we were angry with each other, arguing often.
    I can't seem to be able to move on. I have seen a counsellor in the past, about this. I don't know what's stopping me from moving on.

    any ideas about this dream will be appreciated,
    thank you

    Re: wall of water, feeling scared

    Magda,
    The dream could very well be dealing with the past experience when you and your mother had the falling out. Is there something from that time, unresolved issues that makes it difficult to move on? Having to see a counselor usually means there is something still unresolved.
    Perhaps the events was so out of normal {the usual tranquility in the relationship with your mother} that your personality is not strong enough to cope. That may have its beginnings from earlier childhood. Do you remember any events earlier in life, confrontations with your mother, may have bearings on this dream? Or other possible experiences, other than with your mother? Being inside the family home {in the dream} but being different from the real home, may indicate experiences that were out of the normal.

    Yet it could come down to personality issues, an inability to cope. That would explain your difficulties of moving on, even if the experiences where those having to do with your mother and differences over your choice of boyfriends, which were more recent. Do you consider yourself as having a weak personality on certain issues?

    Thank you Gerard,

    yes I am a weak person when it comes to personal and intimate relationships, I don't know how to cope with arguments and fall outs.

    However at the same time I thought that the wall made of water was a positive symbol. The wall seemed fictional, and boundaries that were real were actually not concrete.
    What do you think?

    thank you

    Magda,
    If water represents the unconscious then, yes the wall could symbolize 'fictional' barriers within the psyche. In such an instance the 'fictional' barriers are ready to let loose those unconscious contents {here I see them as related to your personality} that will open you up to new realizations about yourself.
    Your personality traits may be due to experiences from early life and understanding the foundations of those may be the message of the dream. Have you explored why you are a 'weak' person? Those foundations may reveal something that could very well lead to new growth personality wise.
