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.

    river of mud

    Hello all iam hoping for, a little extra insight on this one??I amin a cave or basment but its full of warm mud and the mud is flowing like a slow stream .I have my daughter w/me and we are floating down w the mud we are laughing and joking playing,I can remember thinking this is stange but ohh well you definatly knew there was presence but nothing to be afraid of,it was like we were on a convayerbelt still laughing and all the sudden others were there floating to but they were sad saying that their loved ones were back there they wondered why they could not come too!!!I knew we were all comming out somewhere soon like the other end or something.But while they were sad i remember thinking this is great i am on my way somewhere great why are they sad..we were all headed somewhere great and they knew too, why would they be worried about others?The dream swithes to a woman i can see walking down a beautiful country fall road,she is walking with 2 children holding there hands one on each side.Iam tring to see who she is at first she looks male a muscular body but to look at her face she was very feminine, very soft motion walked like a woman gental like a woman.So iknow this would represent masculine an feminine?Someelses interpretation would be great..

    Re: river of mud

    abundance,
    Caves and basements in dreams are most often symbolic of the deeper unconscious. Mud is often thought of as something not clean or perhaps harmful but your mud is warm which may indicate the opposite. And it is flowing like a stream and not rushing out as in a dangerous situation. Your daughter could represent your playful side, as could mud, which may also represent your grounding or the foundations of your psyche {who you are}.

    The sad parts. This could be the past { they were sad saying that their loved ones were back there they wondered why they could not come too!!!}. Have you recently left sad memories, experiences behind you and moved on? It was 'sad' then but now life is great, an even flow, full of laughter and joy.

    Another possibility is it could be this is how you wish your life were instead of how it really is. But I sense the above explanation is most likely the case.

    The second part of the dream seems to be addressing balance, an even 'flow' of masculine and feminine aspects. The children, how many do you have if any, could be real responsibilities. Or it could be another reference to balance of duality in your life.

    All in all the dream seems to be a very positive one. If so then it would indicate a positive in your waking life. Have you taken control of your life or found that thing that gives true balance and harmony to it? That may be the message of the dream, you have finally arrive, reached your goals.

    One final thought about the possibilities. Since dreams often address personality issues then this one may be merely addressing your personality traits. Are you generally a happy go lucky person, even in a world where so much goes wrong? That could be a part of all of the dream message.

    Let me know your thoughts and perhaps more can be revealed from that.

    abundance,
    It is you who deserves the appreciation. Wanting to provide your children a balanced upbringing, introducing them to freedom of thought, to think on their own and have a variety of options, that goes beyond normal child rearing, showing foresight and imagination that will be beneficial throughout their lives. And in the process you are finding your own equal librium. Stay strong, disciplined and all that you seek for your children will come to tuition.
