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.

    My Sons

    They say we dream every night but the majority of the time we forget about our dreams.
    Lately I have been running to the doctor for certain back problems and procedures that I needed.
    I am starting to wonder if all this running around to appointments has gotten me so stressed whereas I am dreaming more...well here is the dream I had last night.

    This dream takes place many years ago when I was married and my children were smaller.
    My husband at the time said that he would like to
    take me to see a Broadway Play in the city.
    He asked me to find a babysitter. I had called
    several friends but all were busy because of the
    holiday season.
    My husband then tells me that he has a friend that
    works at the gas station that said he would watch my sons...My sons were 4 years and 5 years old at the time.
    I did not like the idea that his friend was going to watch the boys but according to my husband the guy
    was very trustworthy and had a family of his own.
    We go to drop my boys off at the station. I tell them
    we would be back to pick them up and behave.
    I get in the car and something did not seem right
    about all this.
    As my husband is driving down the road and we were about 2 miles away, I asked him to stop at the burger place cause I had to go to the bathroom.
    He stops the car and is thinking I am going in to the bathroom...when instead I start running back to the gas station where my boys are.
    I get to the station and all the lights are off?
    I am totally going nuts and confused. I look through the window and see my boys sitting on some stools watching the small tv the guy had in there....
    I knocked on the window and told them to open the door. I asked them where is the guy? Oh, they said he had to step out a minute to go to the bank.
    I said, "get your jackets..we are out of here...
    Then the dream ended and I woke up....what in the world could all this mean????

    Re: My Sons

    hi connie,
    this dream may refer to a retrieval of some kind,
    in shamanistic circles ,called soul retrieval,
    part of the personality becomes fragmented and leaves,or gets left behind ,and needs to be retrieved to make the person whole again somehow,

    it maybe refers to a memory or experience from your past that is unresolved and may have some sort of relevance now,

    do you feel you have left or lost part of yourself somewhere in the past?

    does the dream hold anything you can relate to from around this time in your life,
    either with your own children,but more from that perticular age yourself,4 or 5 years old,or add them together aged 9, this may have relevance or not,
    hope this is of use,
    regards cavebear,

    Re: My Sons

    Thanks for your interpretation cavebear...my memory is not that great as far as little incidents are concerned...if there was something *major* that happened I would remember it.
    I do believe that we dream every night but most of the time cannot remember our dreams..the ones we do remember are the most vivid to us...
    Happy New Year....2008!

    Re: Re: My Sons

    hi connie,
    i wouldn't say i have given you an interpretation,
    more ,just a few things to think about,they may mean something to you or not,
    as far as your thoughts on dreaming every night,
    this is absolutely true,i have found that alot of dreams do thier job without having to remember them on waking,
    but the clear,vivid,epic or mythic type dreams ,to me are of a different level and are worthy of investigation,
    middle age is a great time for big dreams,
    and is well documented,
    and i think anyone who is interested in dreams,
    will most definately know one when it comes,
    regards cavebear
