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.

    not dead stepmom.

    ok well the first thing i remember is that i was in a house with a friend and my little sisters.there were also two little girls i didnt know sleeping on the bed, which i just attributed to the "save the children" commercial i saw that night before i went to sleep. but so at some point i looked out the window, and my stepmom was lying on her stomach in the dirt outside, and it was raining, so it was really muddy and gross. she also had some kind of jersey on, which i attributed to the super bowl game coming up i yelled and told my sister to stay in the house and when i walked through the bedroom to go outside, it was the first time i saw the two little girls, who were asleep on the bed. but when i went outside i dont remember what i dd except that my friend came out side and then i was just walking around. then she checked to see if my stepmom as actually dead, and when she did my stepmom "woke up". what i want to know is why didnt i check to see if she was really dead?? i mean, isnt that the first thing you would normally do?? and i love my stepmom like my own mother, maybe even more.why didnt i chech her and see??
    but then as were were taking her back in to the house for some reason we went around the front and there was a man croughed in the yard with a handgun. he saw us, but did nothing more than point the gun and then lower it. i got the feeling that he was waiting for my dad to come home...??and then i think another man showed up, and i know there was more to it than that but i cant recall anything else.

    so if anyone could please help me out, i would very much appreciate it.
    this has been troubling me for the past few days.

    thnk you,

    Hi Emily,

    Can you share what your thoughts are on the "Save the Children"? What is it and what thoughts were going through your head at the time. Can you also elaborate on the "Super Bowl" in the same way.

    Re: not dead stepmom.

    Mud is not normally a positive image.

    Either your dream stepmom represents your real stepmom or she is a symbol from the unconscious.

    If she is your real stepmom, then her being in the mud suggests (to me) a couple of possibilities. (1) This dream may be letting you know that she may not be quite as wonderful as you think. (2) Your relationship with her may be starting to deteriorate.

    However, I suspect that she does not represent your real stepmom but is, rather, a symbol from the unconscious -- she is an archetype. She could be the shadow, the mother archetype or some unknown entity. If she is an archetype, her muddy condition probably means that she has not been getting much attention from you or that she has been treated poorly by you.

    Notice that you did not go to her to wake her up. This is consistent with the interpretation that she (as an archetype) feels that you have not been treating her right.

    When you went to take your stepmom back into the house, you saw a man crouched in the yard with a handgun. You wrote that you had the feeling that he was waiting for your dad to come out.

    It sounds like the man with the gun is a symbol of your animus. During the course of numerous dreams, the animus may evolve and go through four stages of development. If the man is your animus, it looks like he is at the first stage. Often when an archetype does not get enough attention, he (or she) will become violent to other dream people.

    So, how do you improve your relationships with these people? You have already taken a big step in the right direction. You have made a conscious decision to listen to your dreams and try and to understand what they mean.

    Hope this helps.
