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.

    Friend with Emerald Ring

    I had a dream about a friend a few days ago who I have gotten closer to recently. He is sitting at a table with his left arm on the table. He is wearing a green blue long-sleeve shirt. He lifts his arm up and over to his right and while he does his backside of his hand is to me and I see a gold emerald ring on his ring/index finger. Not sure which one now. Anyway, I feel a warm smile inside. I do know in the conscious world when I see him I have a warm happy feeling.

    Re: Friend with Emerald Ring

    Since our dreams reveal our true feelings, then this dream may be simply confirming your conscious feelings toward this person. And although it may be directed toward this one person, the qualities which are represented are qualities you see and believe to be essential for harmony and balance {a circle- the earth}.

    Why such symbols are used in your dream may be due to what you perceive to be genuine and important characteristics. Arms are often symbolic of ability {left and right create a center of balance}. The shirt {persona} matches the colors of the emerald {green/blue}. Emeralds are symbolic of earth {green} and earth is your base, your ground, your earthly foundation, centered {circle}. The finger would represent an 'extension' of yourself, referring to the qualities you believe important. Gold is exactly what it is; valuable, durable, strength on all levels.

    Dreams are intuitive. Perhaps your warm conscious feelings toward him is reinforced by your intuitive nature {through the dream}. My suspicions are you see this person more favorably that you have stated. Unless there are *subsequent dreams dispelling these impressions, I would think this dream is unconsciously agreeing with your conscious assessment {"I do know in the conscious world when I see him I have a warm happy feeling"}. His strengths {intuitively perceived} match those you feel most important.

    *if such subsequent dreams do happen, then this dream would be more about your own inner self, and less about his. Judging him would be less important. You may possess these qualities, or wish to.

    I haven't had any further dreams of the contrary. Interestingly, my friend is of the Earth sign variety. Hmmm...I will contemplate what you said in your post. Thank you for your insights.
