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.

    Construction and a bridge

    I had a dream last night that I was at a place where there was construction going on with hammering. I saw a bridge that was made of wood that over a giant ditch.
    I have been thinking about starting a buisness, so I don't know if the construction part has to do with that.

    Re: Construction and a bridge

    Hi Susan,

    A wooden bridge over a chasm. Hmm. Seems dangerous. Why not a concrete bridge or a steel one. What if termites infest the wood?

    A bridge takes a person from one place to another. The problem is you don;t know what the other place is about until you get there.

    You know... it reminds me of the line out of the movie "Polar Express". It's not important where you are going - just whether you get on board or not".

    A quote from the book of symbols about "Bridge" says
    "There are dangers to be overcome, but also a decision to be taken. Bridges set men and women on narrow paths in which they meet the unavoidable obligation to choose - and that choice is either salvation or damnation."

    Re: Construction and a bridge

    Susan,
    The building of a bridge could very well have something to do with your thoughts of starting a new business. A wooden bridge may have something to do with 'creative' skills or aspects. The ditch may represent obstacles that need to be overcome or crossed. Of course the construction could pertain to 'building' something new, with a need for physical input {hammering}.

    Then too the dream could be addressing some other aspect of your life where there is a need or desire for a new connection. There are obstacles to overcome that require strength {wood}of character physical or emotional abilities.

    Future dreams may help clarify this dream. If there are dreams about future endeavors of the 'business' kind then this dream may have to do with those desires. If it is strong enough of an emotional influence your future dreams will surely address again the problem, and perhaps give clarity to what it is.
