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.

    Strange dream

    I had a dream last night and I'm not quite sure what to think of it.
    In the dream I was on a ship type thing with about 4 other people--my mom, another woman, and two men. I remember at one point being given a pill for some reason and having people standing around me. Someone said something about "paranoia" and I didn't know if they were talking about me or not. I didn't say anything. Then, they started to try to carry me or move me somehow and I started to panic and I started biting this woman's hand, trying to get away. But after a moment, I took a deep breath and made myself calm down.
    Eventually, the woman and my mother left me with the two men. One was older with graying hair and the other was younger. I talked to the older one and he said something about not being able to have sex with me or something because he was there to help me. It was strange, but he made me feel comfortable. Then, after a little bit he left and I was left with the other guy. For some reason they (all four of the people) decided I needed to have my face washed, so they had this guy start washing my face. But he kept getting distracted and leaving soap all over my face, so I kept splashing water on it to get the soap off.
    After that, things got a little fuzzy. But I do remember that at one point I was surrounded by all of these pillows while the man was washing my face. He wasn't as inhibited as the older man and I ended up curled up next to him while I was surrounded by all the pillows.
    The dream wasn't upsetting. It was just strange and I'd like to know what you guys think about it.
    Thank you.

    Re: Strange dream

    I haven't had probably what could be called "clinical" paranoia. But, for the most part, I often worry about people listening in on me when I'm either on the phone or talking to someone in person. I have to be almost totally away from everyone else when I'm on the phone or am talking to someone in person. If my boyfriend is with me or I'm on the phone with him, I am especially worried about people eavesdropping.

    Re: Strange dream

    Karli,
    I can see a relationship between your uneasiness with people 'eavesdropping' on you. The word paranoia probably is a bit strong but does provide connections. "people standing around me" may also provide a connection. Along with the panic the relationship seems strong.

    Have you been criticised for your 'paranoia'? The soap on your face may represent ridding yourself of negative thoughts, brought on by others criticism, or your own actions. The men are probably animus aspects. Faces in a dream often symbolize persona and perhaps there is a need to induce masculine qualities to overcome your unease of others 'listening' in on you. Getting to know those masculine aspects and utilizing them may explain the ease you had with the one man you curled up next to. Although 'he' is younger and possesses less wisdom than the older guy {both you felt comfortable with}, that may suggest you do not need to change your attitude all at once. Your problem is not so much a paranoia as it is a distrust.

    Can you explain why there is such distrust? That may enter into the equation of the dream. Your response may shed light on other possibilities.

    Re: Strange dream

    I have such distrust because in the past, people that I cared about (especially my friends) lied to me and stabbed me in the back. And, more recently, my dad has withheld information from me and I don't necessarily trust him to tell me things. People just haven't seemed to be very honest with me and in response to that I shut down and shut them out.

    Re: Strange dream

    Karli,
    Thanks for your follow up response. It does seem to confirm the distrust presented by the imagery in your dream. The man with the pillows may be what is most needed in your distrust of others. 'He' would represent your own masculine qualities, those that may need to be utilized in this conflict of trust. Being less intimidated by those you distrust may be the role 'he' can play in confronting this issue. Perhaps a thicker skin is needed, at least until the time you are able to distance yourself from those you distrust.
