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.

    the cauldron of plenty

    hi,
    i wanted to post this latest dream not so much for interpretation as i know what it refers to,
    but for a ref to an analogy with a myth,
    the dream,
    i am invited to participate as a guest in a meal provided by a tribe who's language i have had difficulty understanding,(language of dreams)
    a metal cauldron like pot is placed on the table,
    it contains a deliscious stew,
    i am not sure of the customs of the people i am with,
    but to my right a female,middle aged with very young smooth brown skin,tells me that the pot is contiuosly added to,and is therefore a neverending supply of sustanance,
    she also tells me how i am to conduct myself,
    and can speak both my language and that of the tribe,

    i offer the food to others at first as it only seems polite,
    but as i am the guest,they beckon me to have first dip,
    seems the pot stays in the centre of the table,and everyone dips bread in,
    i thank them all for the hospitality they have shown me,and especially the female for keeping me right,and allowing me to follow her cue,

    i have an interest in the grail myths,and my research led me to the cauldron of plenty from celtic mythology,the grail being virtualy the same thing,
    this is one of those myth images i had consciously forgotten about,
    i am aware of the symbology from a jungian point
    of view,right down to the anima figure,(the female)
    as guide and go-between,
    stands with fists from dances with wolves came to mind,infact the whole dream felt like this first clumsey ,communication/contact theme,

    feel i have been dipped in magic waters.

    Cavebear,
    The power of the feminine. Keeps you centered, creative and prosperous. If only our Judo-Christian society could let itself submit to her powers. Too much to ask I'm afraid.

    gerard,
    was it jo campbell that mentioned,
    religion is a defence against a true religious experience,
    your words reminded me of this.
    and i feel that the feminine aspect is the bridge that connects,that religio,the link, that campbell and jung talk about.
    its one thing to read the stuff,
    but another to experience it.

    Cavebear,
    The experience of being alive. I believe it requires an acceptance of the feminine to truly feel alive. We need only look at our patriarchal systems of religion and see how lost man is without the feminine {feminine body and psyche}.
    You are right on about Campbell's quote. A true religious experience must include the feminine {the feminine often symbolizes spirituality and creativity}.

    Re: Re: the cauldron of plenty

    gerard,
    following up your words on accepting the feminine,
    i was led to the ancient celtic myths of the cauldron of dagda,and the myth of the hero cuhulin and the morrigan,
    and the final lesson was exactly as you mentioned in regard to the acceptance of the feminine,
    cuhulins misfortune was that he never recognised the feminine power of sovereignty that she,morrigan offered him,
    cuhulin was the personification of the absolute masculine ego,he didn't need the help of the feminine so he thought,
    what he didn't realise was that it was the morrigan who gave him his strength and power,and she can and did take it away,
    this is a great myth which unfortunatly as you say ,is still being played out today.
    this myth has helped me to realise and understand the archetype that is the feminine ,and the gifts she bears,
    great stuff.
