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.

    Haunted hallway, childhood home, ghost?

    Hi Ya'll...
    I dream I am in my childhood home in the dinning room that is next to the sliding glass doors. I am not supposed to open the doors because there is something dangerous or forbidden behind them (in reality, it just opened up to the back yard). I know that if I open the doors, I will be able to see down a long dark and haunted hallway because I have opened them before. I know there is a spirit that I might upset, and she wants to scare me into submission, so I dare her to get mad or upset or come out by opening the door and leaving it opened as though I were teasing her (a recurring theme). I step back to the other side of the table and look back. I see a flash of light come towards me, and it was fast. I knew it was her, and I'm scared (not so tough after all). I try to close the door, but it is either stuck or she's holding it. I tell my husband to force it while I hold a bottle of holy water and squirt it around the entire frame over and over again while he tries. He tells me that the door is completely stuck, and he still has about six inches to go. I woke up looking for the evil spirit in my room, and felt as though I allowed her in, so what was I supposed to do now. ?
    Thank You for any efforts and insights!

    Hi MarleyDog,

    It would help if you mention some associations. If you don't know how to do this the easiest method is to read your dream slowly about three times and wait for some memories or thoughts to come into your consciousness. Or, what does the dream remind you of. How do you feel about the dream, or do you get a gut feeling about it.

    The only thing that comes to mind is "Pandora's box" and the "Bluebeard" myth or "Fitchers Bird" myth. I don't know how they relate. I will have to think about that further.

    Re: Haunted hallway, childhood home, ghost?

    I read it again... (I don't know if this fits) I didn't like to follow the "rules" of Catholic school and unspoken family "rules" and rigid "roles."

    In Catholic school, I didn't agree with the belief that "we" were better... I questioned the nuns out of spite until they said that I was "incorrigible" (I was too young to understand what the word meant, but I loved teasing and questioning them).

    In my family, I questioned why we were different. I left home (a definite "no-no"). I married a man that wasn't ethnic, and he was from a different religion. I spoke about dysfunctions and didn't let things go - like I was told to do. I was funny, fiesty, curious, and possibly irritating. I liked who I was/am.

    With the truth however, comes fear of the unknown and fear of the truth affecting life.

    Maybe this fits, but I think there's more...? I'll get it -- eventually.

    Re: Haunted hallway, childhood home, ghost?

    Can you see a pattern in the three myths you mentioned? What do you think they are about? I don't think your childhood memories are the interpretation, but they could add depth to the myths and the dream.

    The definition of incorrigible from Wiktionery is,

    Impossible to correct or set aright.
    Incurably bad.
    Impervious to correction by punishment or pain.

    What feelings did you have as a child towards the nuns who told you you were incorrigible?

    Your Psyche is reminding you of the situation and the way to test it out is to look back over the past 3 weeks and see if that pattern has repeated itself in a real life situation.
