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.

    Seemingly Airplane Crashing

    I am hoping for insight from Kathy or anyone else please. Thank you so much. Last night I dreamed that I went to a nearby town (only 15 mins walking) - I think to see a movie. Then decided instead to turn around and go back home. (I became totally conscious of the dream from the turnaround). It was night and very dark, but when I turned around it was a beautiful, bright sunshiney day - prompting me to think within the dream - why is it so sunshiney bright and why is it daytime all of a sudden? Then I looked up and saw a plane above very near the ground. In my dream thought it appeared to be so close because it was headed to the ground very fast. I started to scream and run, thinking in the dream that it would be impossible to outrun the plane to get to safety. I woke up just as i began to scream and run. Not startled, not sweating, but wide awake. So, at 1:30 am, I began some odd chores, and looked at TV, then fell back to sleep. Oddly enough, I don't know if the plane was really going to crash, although I could see no other outcome logically. I also don't know why the first thought was of sunshine and a beautiful day, and THEN I looked over my shoulder and up and saw a plane that seemed "dangerously" close, and THEN began to run. But never witnessed or felt a crash.

    Re: Seemingly Airplane Crashing

    The movie you were about to see but changed your mind strongly indicates there is something your life {the movie} that you may not be willing acknowledge. The plane about to crash may be that thing. I sense is there is a fear there are aspects of your life you are afraid will come 'crashing down'. You can't outrun it.

    But there is also the positive within the dream. So we have a dream where there is sunshine, perhaps indicating your positive attitude toward life, yet there is a fear of something crashing around you. The fear, which I sense is more of a general fear and not one particular thing, may have to do with life itself and the negative possibilities that seem to constantly surrounds you. In other words, at mid-life the changes in life put greater emphasis on all possibilities rather than the general positive outlook you had when you were younger. When we are young we tend to ignore the negatives no matter the gravity. At mid-life, 40+ to 60, life brings about reality, and we tend to focus on all possibilities.

    But there may be one or more particular negatives in your life that threaten to 'crash'. Look at your life and see if that is the case. If not then I suspect the dream is dealing more in generalities. In mid-life the question "why is it so sunshiney bright and why is it daytime all of a sudden" is common. The sunshine is what you expect as a younger person but comes into question as you age and see all the negatives {including reflecting on the past}. Looking back is the focus as we age and stressful fears also.

    Your follow-up post may help clarify the possibilities.

    Dear Gerard,

    Thank you so much for your positively insightful reply.

    It has only been within the past two years that things have been going so smoothly and increasingly well for me.

    I think you are right - I am afraid that all of this "good" will come crasing down around me. There are no real life negatives, just me thinking that somehow this will all end. Perhaps I am afraid of "seeing" my future life - the movie - because I am afraid of the ending.

    Thank you so much for your reply. It has really given me clarity.

    Kind regards,
