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.

    WATER

    Hi there,I've been having a lot more dreams that I'm struggling with and I know that u would be able to shed some light. 2wks ago in my dream I saw my sister, her daughter and her friend in their car trying to turn around but ended up in the river with the front of the car going down and there's was nothing I could do except scream. The dream then changed when I told my husband about the accident , he was so upset, the river then became lake ontario and as we were walking towards the bridge my husband jump into the lake , I started to scream because I knew he could'nt swim and that he would die, I could'nt see him for about 1/2hr and then I saw him come out of the water and he was ok. I wrote u in the past about how often I dream of #'s and that did not change, 2 nights ago I dreamt I found money ( two $5 and 1 $50 )Please let me know what u think, thank you.

    Re: WATER

    Hi Moo,

    Here's an amplification that may give you some depth to the dream you experienced. It is the Greek myth of the abduction of Persephone (the daughter of Demeter) by Hades and the ensuing rescue by Hermes. To get to Hades you have to cross the river Styx.

    Compare you dream to this myth and see what is different, what is missing etc, but please do not take the death theme literally. Hades is the most misunderstood of all the Gods. He is actually associated with gold, silver and the cornucopia. He is the ruler of the underworld.

    This myth snd its effect in women's psychology is amptly described in the book "Goddesses in Every Woman" by Bolen.

    Good Luck with your investigation.

    Re: WATER

    Hi Moo,

    I forgot to mention the part about the money. My experience has been that the more zero's there are the more important the number. Five is the symbol of the human being. The manifestation of man in the full maturity of his physical and spiritual development., the senses, balanced marriage, the centre, the centre of the world is thus the central crossroads, which is a place for the production of terrifying apparitions.

    One other thing about money - you need to pay the ferryman to cross the river Styx, but remember, it is a return journey. No human can stay there. Persephone guides the living humans through Hades. Another book you may be interested in, if you haven't read it already, is "She" by Robert A Johnson.
