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.

    Love, and my place of work

    When I feel like I am coming up empty about an issue I'm struggling with, I will incubate a dream to glean guidance. Last night's dream I asked about finding love. In the dream was a former love I still have some unresolved feelings for. The location was where I work, a private Christian college where I found healing. My dream is two fragments. Here is my dream:

    I am at work, in the mechanic's shop (former love is of the same profession). Former love is walking around, working, dressed up in a dress shirt and loosely tied tie. I go into his office - I can't believe I am in it, happily - and it is surrounded by glass. You can see out, and in. We pass each other, but say nothing. I go to leave, but the door out of the shop is broken.

    I am outside my own shop at work. I am a gardener. I am carrying my yellow blanket and pink comforter cover from my bed out in the parking lot. I see it is dragging on the ground some. A new guy has started at work, and I hear someone is giving him grief about "something". I think a fight is to ensue, but then hear the conversation become peaceful and friendly.

    Second fragment: I am outside on the porch of my childhood home with my Mom. We are getting the mail from the black mailbox. I see it is loaded with small, brown gifts from Ireland. (Yes, I am Irish) There are so many, I am filling my arms up. I look over and see a small group of people, including the mailman, at the bottom of the porch steps, watching. My Mom hands me a small diamond ring, and asks, "who sent you this?" and I think to myself, "what makes you think it's for me?" but say, "just put it on my pinky". She drops the ring, and I look down on the ground to see where it went. The dream ends.

    Thank you for any insights into the message of my dream.

    Re: Love, and my place of work

    Maureen,
    The first fragment seems to be addressing your lingering emotions toward your former love. The fact you can see in and out of the glass office may indicate the reality of the relationship; being able to see your true emotions. You can not get away from it {door is broken}. Or it may mean you can not in reality renew the relationship. Which best fits reality?

    The second part seems to be about conflicts that have been resolved. Is there a new guy in your life? Or perhaps the new guy represents your job, it has resolved conflicts and provided healing.

    The second fragment. Gifts from the unconscious {black mailbox}. The diamond ring may represent love, commitment. Where has it gone?
    Does your mother figure into any part of your relationships?

    Thank you, Gerard ~

    Well, I go about my life and let God take care of the details, as far as a reconciliation goes.

    *[The second part seems to be about conflicts that have been resolved. Is there a new guy in your life? Or perhaps the new guy represents your job, it has resolved conflicts and provided healing.]*

    Yes, a new guy, from my job. Both have helped with healing. But now it's time to move on, as both have provided what was needed for healing. I seem to have outgrown both.

    Mom was in last night's dream, too...watching as I do the wash. She didn't want to do the wash with the rest of us. She sat high up in a bulldozer! Perhaps I need to take a closer look at where I am being stubborn, or rigid.

    Thank you!

    Thanks!
