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 SYNCHRONISTIC ENCOUNTER: Where Dreams and Waking Life Intersect

    Here is a page I believe will interest all good Jungians. Its Jungian but it also illustrates Joseph Campbell's articulation of the inner journey's manifestation in the waking life, "follow your bliss".
    Chance encounters.... Synchronicity? Life changing events that seem to occur 'as if it was intended that way'. Natural theology.

    From the page:

    Jung had said that the cause of suffering and neurosis was not finding our true vocation.
    The point is that if we follow our inner voice we will find our true vocation, snap out of our neurosis and heal our suffering, or so says Jung.

    gerard,
    many thanks for this,
    interesting the feelings he had about ,not wanting to be seen as a lunatic,so keeping quite,
    i can say with all honesty,i know how he feels,i have been there myself,even down to his experience of two worlds,
    the advice given by his mentor was i thought very refreshing,as i believe this type of experience is not a disease to be cured,
    the bridge building he mentioned has great significance,and is something i am engaged in myself,
    i can breath a sigh of relief in the knowledge that its not just me then!.

    cavebear,
    His experience codifies my own understanding of the metaphysical process {but not supernatural}. And my strong support of Jungian psyche. It is in the creative Self, which is an extension of the spiritual Self {natural theology}, that you find the center, balance and harmony. It is first a psychological process. But there must the physical act of living life from the spiritual. That is where mythology plays it role, the universal patterns of behavior that we inherently relate to. And in dreams where the archetypal images displays our true life's condition, and exposes the personal myth, with therapeutic results.

    A SYNCHRONISTIC ENCOUNTER

    The piece probably struck me as relevant since I plan to do some type of workshops in the Middle Tn. area this spring. {SYNCHRONISTIC ENCOUNTERS}. I've worked toward those ends for awhile now and think the time right to do this. Of course the focus will be on Jungian psyche, dreams, Campbell, spirituality, Individuation {Process}. I'm expecting most who would interested will be female and most in their 40s and 50s. The mid-life thing is important to understand. At 57 I'm on the back end of that stage. Using Jung, equating spirituality and creativity to a more balanced and harmonious life has helped me and may help others find direction in their journey. I know it will be a learning experience for me and I look forward to it. I see it as the next step in my evolution.
