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.

    I dreamed of a Blue Buffalo

    I dreamed of these people who were kind of scary spirit beings...they told me they had something to tell me...they were confused and couldn't explain it at all, they kept asking me for more time, and I said OK, and waited...then towards the end of the dream they showed me a brilliant colored blue buffalo. It was there message to me...but I have no idea of what it means.

    Any info?

    Re: I dreamed of a Blue Buffalo

    Interesting dream and symbology!

    one way to help you interpret the 'message' of your dream is to describe maybe to your self about what buffalo means to you and what it stands for within the american culture. you may even find that buffalo will crop up or has cropped up else where in your daily life notice these 'coincidences' as well and when they do notice what you were thinking about or doing at the same time as quite often the same message, or message that is coming through from you inner self is contained within these meaningful events.

    Blue is the colour of expression and self expression, the brillance of the blue suggests that you have or are developing a highly communicative ability, or need to around the smybology of the buffalo, or it is likely that the Buffalo aspect of yourself you communicate well or need to develop. The buffalo energy for me is about getting things and has a certain raw power/energy. The American bison is often used in North America in official seals, flags and logos and he bison is a symbol or mascot of many institutions, states and universities. My guess is though i am no expert, is the buffalo represents for these instituitions again the same idea as what its physical energy reflects the raw energy or power, strength as opposed to what a swans energy would reflect ie that which is more loftier and delicate.

    Your dream may be telling you about your need to get into contact with this 'Buffalo energy' within and give expression to it, it may be what you need to develop at this time to meet the demands of your outer life, just an avenue to explore!

    Re: I dreamed of a Blue Buffalo

    Andrew,
    The key to your dream and its message probably lies with the buffalo symbol. The spirits wishing to tell you something would represent your own inner spirit. They may seem scary because of the message they have to tell. The fact they were confused suggests there is confusion on your part. Seeking more time is most likely an effort on the part of your conscious ego to repress what ever the message is {this is a norm - the ego will often try to block such info because of the possible emotional pain}.

    Back to the buffalo. From The MDS Dream Dictionary:

    May symbolize those human animal aspects that survive through difficult situations.
    May represent fertile opportunities that are offered to you in your path to self awareness.


    The two above possibilities to the buffalo symbol could very well reinforce each other. If you have recently survived a difficult situation in your life then there is most likely an opportunity that presents new fertile and positive possibilities from that survival experience. The color blue often symbolizes inspiration, yet it also can represent depression. I sense the blue buffalo is a positive perhaps resulting from overcoming a negative {changing blue feelings into positive feelings}.

    Have you had recent experiences that involved surviving some ordeal or difficult situation? If so the message may be there are new opportunities for you because you have survived. That could be the message. But it may require strength of character {another symbolic value of a buffalo-strength} to turn this negative into a positive. Another symbolic value of a buffalo is endurance. That may address the call for you to wait-waiting out the ego's mindful determination not to recognize these inner emotions. It is the role of dreams to help you overcome the ego's opposition and overcome the confusion.
