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.

    A rat and a polecat.


    I've had this dream, in which I was standing on the balcony looking at a *polecat (obviously my new pet), play in its new "hideout" (home). My father joined me and the more I looked, the more worried I was starting to get. And all of a sudden I can see my previous pet, the *rat, come out from one of the holes looking very aggravated by the polecat. I don't know what happened next between my two pets, but I can see myself running and crying, holding my pet rat, and she looks very sad or sick.

    *I don't have a polecat,
    *My pet rat died alone in my house.

    Re: A rat and a polecat.

    Your age is important. Not knowing is a definite handicap.

    The possibilities of your dream. You have a complex {balcony} albeit unconscious {hideout}. Something new, yet having to do with your complex is at 'play'. There is conflict, possibly having your father. This is probably a conflict that has lasted a long time.

    Is there a conflict between you and your father having to do with certain habits you possess? It would be something that would have come up prior to having this dream and something that has been going on for some time. Look back at the last several days {prior to the dream} and see what conflicts or confrontations you have had with your dad. See if there are any actions that fit with this dream.

    Re: A rat and a polecat.

    I'm 25 yrs old.
    Hhaha! You got it right. There is a conflict between me and my father, an ongoing fight since, if I recall right, ten years or so (maybe even longer). Now I know why didn't I focus on my father, the 'scene' was too short :)

    Oh, by the way - nice place. Thanks again!
