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.

    Can't move my arms?

    The dream begins pretty relaxed - very vague as to content, with me walking about different places (home, school, places I don't know), I meet with different people, friends, aquaintences. just kind of the notions this is happenning, not real imprints of anything very solid.

    I then am at home at me computer, and realise I've mail. It's an email from a friend (girl) who'se had her life pretty much screwed up by me because of one stupid mistake (we were in a relation ship at one point), only she doesn't remember. She emails saying she's remembered everything.

    Yet it's not really bad, just kind of relaxed - getting the email kind of makes me anxious but happy - reliefe things can move on, however bad the concequences are.

    I then have to go to bed, and I'm asleep, but it's pretty short lived. the bedroom is pretty vague it's kind of like very I'm partially with lots of friends, partially alone, partially in my bed, partially in different kinds of beds - kind fo the vagueness of the start. Yet it seems normal.

    When I wake up, a girl seems to be hugging me REALLY tightly, so tightly I can't move. Everything about her presence is BAD. the best way to describe it is as though I gohst has hold of me. I feel the presence...but there's kind of no one there when I start to physically wake up a little.

    At first I think it's maybe a friend, as her presence is a TINY part of one of my friends , but at the same time not. It's an incredibly farmilliar presence, yet I can't place's hard to describe...

    I don't know this person, yet there's something about her that's so REAL, so FARMILLIAR that I can't shake.

    When I wake up in the dream I freak out, the presence is so bad...and I can't move my arms at all, not even when I'm pretty much awake. I just know I have to get out. there's something bad about her. Intrinsically evil...I have to get out...somethings wrong...

    Even being pretty much awake it's like there's this girl with her arms around me.

    I can hear this kind of static in my head, a kind of vague screaming too. But not screaming, kind of like I'm trying to scream, but it starts of as unconscious screaming, that I've not the energy to make into more than the word 'aaahhh' like being at a dentist, and it's in my head, I'm not saying it. But it's kind of like I'm unconscious of making the sound, I can just hear it.

    I remember as I was waking up wondering if I was having some kind of fit.

    Even though I was stationary, and it seemed my arms were frozen; trapped, it kind felt like I was spasming. And my thoughts were weird, uncontrolable, but uncomprehendable, but only while I was inbetween waking and asleep.

    When I woke up, I was filled with her presence and COULD NOT turn the light off until it'd gone. It was like she was there, and watching me, and if I turned the light on, and turned onto my side she'd see me and get me.

    I can't describe the bad feeling, the bad presence I got from her...

    When I was able to turn the light off and go to sleep it'd kind of gone...

    She was so REAL, so disturbingly farmiliar, yet I'd never felt any single person like her - persona/presence wise as disturbingly vivid like her -I'd never met anyone like that, but there was something so farmilliar...

    I can't get it out of my head...

    The beginging of the dream was vague, nice, relaxing, though faintly switched off and unfarmilliar - not quite connected to any place or person. the bit with the girl was pretty much opposite. Fight or flight, paralysed by fear, unflowing, yet REAL.

    Re: Can't move my arms?

    Such a long dream will require some time to break down. I'll do that later today when my time is less inhibited.
    Thanks for patience.

    Re: Can't move my arms?

    As a note, she was my age (16ish).

    The bad feeling was kind of a dominant one, but very changable and hard to pin down.

    I could kind of feel what was in her mind through the presence but it wouldn't untangle enough from my own mind, so I couldn't go deep enough in...

    Re: Can't move my arms?

    After going through the ordinary life of mundane experiences, your psyche through this dream is addressing deep emotions that you probably have tried to put behind you.
    This person, the girl is most likely you. The bad feelings probably are due to the guilt you feel from the mistake and the harm to another person. The ghost is your ghost, making you feel bad, the bad vibes {something about her that's so REAL, so FAMILIAR}. Unconsciously your psyche is addressing the guilt you feel. It is not something you have felt before, or wish to feel again.

    This is the function of dreams and the language of dreams. The dream is about you and your emotions. Consciously you may feel you have put this 'bad' experience behind you. But consciously there are still unresolved emotions from the experience. Dreams are from the unconcious and what was conscious has become unconscious. The way of the dream.
