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.

    Re: old woman holding a rose

    Anna,
    Such a short dream has many possibilities. Considering your age {17} and older woman could represent wisdom. Roses are connected to the heart. Romance? Virginity.

    Are you in a relationship? Are there pressures that you face that require wisdom? This may be what the dream is addressing. But again so many possibilities. Let me know your situation in romance and perhaps we can eliminate that, or perhaps it fits.

    Re: old woman holding a rose

    i'm not currently in a relationship. my last was too intense & put me off relationships for a while, so i just had a few flings. now though i suppose i am looking more for a stable relationship. in my dream the old woman did not seem as much wise as she did a tad senile, obsessed with me receiving the rose, desperate for companionship maybe? hmmmmm. o and i'm not a virgin.

    Re: old woman holding a rose

    Anna,
    The extra info can make a difference. Knowing what the old woman was doing can have a great bearing on the possibilities. The smallest details can give clues to the dream message.

    If we eliminate actual old women in your life {do you have a grandmother or an acquaintance that is old and senile?} then the symbolism of the old woman probably reflects some aspect of yourself. Roses more often symbolize romance. Perhaps since you are not in a relationship you may feel you may feel you will get old before you have a real romance. The old woman in that case is offering you the rose as a symbol of love. She may have missed out on romance which would represent your own fears of missing out.
