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.

    I ching

    I had this dream about a week ago,and it is still sitting w/me.I dreamed i was in this dimmed lit room,sitting on a wood floor that was warm.There was this deep comforting voice comming from behind me,I could not see him but certinley felt him with every fiber of my being.There was this long strip of white paper,He was teaching me the symbols of the I-CHING.There were no hexagrams just symbols,I was painting them in the most beautiful red color,it looked like silk.I know we are not suppost to take this literally so what could this mean?This was so peaceful.I have been studing the way for a couple of years now and have recently been working on some deep dark unconcious behavior and thoughts.Thoughts or behaviors that hinder my true nature.Help

    Re: I ching

    A very positive dream. The wood floor would indicate {to me} a natural foundation that is slowly being realized {dimmed lite room}. As you get in touch with the inner Self you become aware of the presence of the natural forces within nature {remember Luke Skywalker's admonishment to use the 'Force?}. The inner Voice is that Force, unseeable but always with you.

    The I-CHING is a symbol system used to identify order in chance events.

    the I-CHING is nature

    It contains layers of symbols, one within the other. Symbols are used to describe other symbols. It is, therefore, no wonder that people find this book of wisdom obscure. Because the nature of a symbol always points to something beyond itself, the meanings can never be pinned down but are always open to each new reader.

    This would explain the natural order of your dream, yes, a literal interpretation {rare, yet normal within the laws of nature}. The color is red is the symbol of life {blood}.

    From Hyperdictionary we find this for the word silk:
    You will never lack the necessities of life

    When we rely on the forces of nature {and not man} we never lack those essentials. Just as with Luke nature provides us with the tools to carry on. My thoughts are those tools for man are of a spiritual nature that summons our creative Self to take the lead. My reading of this dream points to that.

    But it is also discovering those deep aspects of the individual life. Jung's Individuation Process is a method for self discovery, looking deep with to discover the true Self. Although you may not use this method {the I-CHING is another, similar psychological method} you are participating in the process of Self discovery. This dream is very positive.

    he who knows doesn't know. he who doesn't know knows

    the knowing comes with Self discovery.

    Does this fit with where you are in your search?

    Re: I ching

    Taking more time to read the link I provided on the I-Ching I find that the hexagram is associated withe creative. Perhaps the lack of presence of a hexagram in your dream is a call to include the creative as a part of your life.
    Have you discovered your creative aspects and do you utilize them in your waking life?
