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.

    wondering what this means?

    This was a calm 'dream/vision' while I was having a reiki treatment. I'm curious what it could mean?

    I saw a wolf, standing on the bank of a stream, head down drinking the water. It was a softly flowing stream.. very calming and quiet. I was simply observing it calmly. It didn't last long and I didn't 'see' anything else. It's the first time this has happened.
    Any ideas anyone?
    Thanks

    Re: wondering what this means?

    Liridona,
    The fact you were having a reiki treatment may have an influence with this dream/vision. The flow of energy is strongly positive and there may be an influence from that flow on the dream. Your dream
    "softly flowing stream.. very calming and quiet. I was simply observing it calmly".
    Can you see the connection?

    From hyperdictionary:
    Seeing a wolf in your dream, symbolizes beauty, solitude, mystery, self-confidence and pride. This is an aspect of you {the wolf}. You are observing this aspect in your dream. Equate it to your waking life and you may discover something new.

    Re: wondering what this means?

    Hi Liridona,

    The same thing happened to me when I had a reiki session, but a different vision. What I think you will find is that you had an 'active imagination'session, or what Jung says is "dreaming with eyes open". You were in a relaxed state and the ego obviously shut up long enough for the vision to occur. But unlike dreaming, the ego consciousness is more prominent. An encounter with unconscious content. The thing with 'active imagination' is that you should react to objects as you would in real life, so how would you have reacted in real life if you saw a wolf as close as you saw it in the vision? You need to figure out what "wolf" means to you based on your lifes experiences. Did the wolf see you in the vision?

    If you want to find out more about 'active imagination' the best place to start is the book by Robert Johnson called "Inner Work".
