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.

    Having weird dreams lately.

    This is what I dreamt yesterday after a night shift.

    I was in an old gym; and there was going to be a concert by Take That. When they entered all the girls rushed the stage but I just stood there unable to remember which member of the band I fancies. All the other girls wanted hugs from the band, but I realized there was a guy there - a former colleague and I wanted to hug him. But he was busy trying to capture a bird in a cage; I guess the bird was mine because once it was in the cage he said "there!" - Implying I was all set to go or something. Then he offered me a goodbye hug but I refused... even if I wanted to touch him desperately.

    I'm not sure how old I was in the dream, you'd think I'd be 14 or so; but I might not have been any younger than my actual age.

    Re: Having weird dreams lately.

    GCzilla,
    I sense the dream is directed at a need for attention or a focus on one particular aspect in your life. You may feel 'caged in' and seek freedom. There may be opportunities for you but thus far you have refused to accept them, even though you dearly want to embrace certain possibilities.

    Look at your waking life and determine where the above may fit. Let me know your response and perhaps we will be able to gain insights to the dream.

    Re: Having weird dreams lately.

    Just as we exercise our physical body we also do the same with our mental body, thoughts attitudes and patterns of behaviour, prone to repeating them over and over again. The 'old gym' seems to give reference to some pattern (likely behavioural) that you continue to exercise and repeat in your life.

    Men in dreams represent our thoughts behaviours or attitudes that we have our action taking/doing energy if you like, and your dream suggests that rather choosing to embrace a 'group' of thoughts, attitudes that would be more harmonious 'band' to you, you instead choose to continue and embrace a particular behaviour that seems to imprison or impair your sense of feeling free 'bird in a cage', ie the way you instead choose to think in relation to some situation in your life continues to undermine your sense of freedom. Asking yourself what it is you see in your collegue will tell you more about some attitude, way of thinking that you share with him even if only in an unconscious way, and which continues to undermine your sense of freedom.

    The latter part of your dream may give reference to what form of behaviour, thinking does stop you from moving forward in your life and it seems to rest in firstly in your ability to embrace certain aspects of yourself possibly through fear which only serves to keep you isolated or separate, this inner dynamic would then secondly manifest in your outer world in the same way which would serve to keep you from meeting or reaching out to men in your life. Its this wanting to reach out desperately but holding yourself back pattern of behaviour that is represented by the bird in the cage, this behaviour reveals something of how you limit yourself.

    Just some avenues to explore, as with all dream interps just take from it that which suits you.

    Good luck Marce

    Re: Having weird dreams lately.

    Maybe the old shabby gym represents the fact that I have a crummy apartment, and I hate it, but I dont have the energy or finances to move right now.

    I might also mention that Im kinda in love with the mentioned colleague; but he's married.

    Re: Having weird dreams lately.

    GCzila,
    Te apartment could be part of the problem. But there is most likely an 'apartment' within your psyche that is in shambles also {mental state of being}. Are there problems in your life where you feel unable to 'fit in'? What is it besides your living conditions that make you feel 'caged in'? These are what the dream is most likely trying to address. The waking conditions in your life and the unconscious stimuli that underlies the waking conditions.
