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.

    lighting matches

    I had the weirdest dream last night where my brother and I are young again. He was about 5 and I was 7.
    We were both in my parents home upstairs in my parents bedroom.
    I had my pajamas on and so did he.
    It was nightime and my parents were not in the dream.
    When I was upstairs in my room I ran out cause I smelled smoke.
    My brother was laughing and there was a small fire
    on the rug.
    I ran in the bathroom and got a big pan full of water
    and put the fire out.
    I reprimanded my brother then went back in my room.
    All this took place in my parents room.
    Again, I smell smoke and my brother lit another
    fire....
    For the 2nd time, I yelled and ran to get the water and I did put the fire out...
    What I don't understand is why my brother was
    lighting my parents room on fire?
    After the 2nd time this happened...I had then
    woke up from the dream....
    really troubled.......................
    what can all this mean?

    Hi Connie,

    Have a look at your dream post on 4th January and see if you can see the main theme between that dream and this one.

    Also, what associations do you have with this latest dream?

    Associations are your perceptions, images, fantasies according to certain personal and psychological themes. In other words what thoughts, memories or feelings come to mind as you read through each main component of your dream. What does it remind you of.

    Did you spot the theme between your two dreams?

    Re: lighting matches

    Connie,
    I agree with Stephen's assessment. There seems to be related subject matter between the two dreams. Both address young boys around the age of 5 in interaction with you. Both also show a need for these boys to be given attention {brother lighting fires and sons needing a baby sitter}. Trustworthiness also seems to be an issue. Since there are different boys in each dream it may suggest the dreams are more about experiences with the masculine earlier in life more so than the named individuals {although your brother may be involved with past experiences}.

    Also in both dreams are bathrooms, which may suggest there are aspects within your psyche that need elimination or revealing to your conscious mind. Are there any complexes that may involve trust of men or a particular man? My guess is the involvement of boys of a younger age and also in your parents home suggests this possible complex began earlier in life {5 years old, 5 years ago}. There are distinct patterns, the boys, the ages, the bathrooms, parents {yours and you and your husband}. Can you tie them together?

    Re: lighting matches

    Connie,
    Thanks for your response. Being a 'worry wart' could very well explain the dreams. Stress and worry or something dreams try to expose, and deal with with all of us. The young boys could represent both your brother {big sister} and sons {mother}. It could also represent your own masculine aspects, a tendency to worry being less than a 'manly' thing. Worry is a natural aspect. Too much worry is not. Dreams are therapeutic, intending to help balance what ever aspects that are out of balance.

    Re: lighting matches

    Hi Connie,
    So what are you worried about now? Something need to be mothered and protected? Playing with fire tends to be related to making a foolish decision.

    It's probably within the last 3 weeks.
