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.

    Re: my gf of three years gets stabbed

    Hi Matt,

    The great thing about dreams is that they are a sort of a commentary on inner or outer situations where the degree of ego involvement is minimal. The other great thing is that you can follow the commentary or decide not to. They also tend to be compensatory, which means they point you into a direction that you should be heading towards - if you agree with it.

    The thing that stands out is how you announced your girlfriend to the forum. You abbreviated her, but put how long you have had a relationship with her in full and how much you cherrish her - yet she achieves abbreviated status ie. gf. you don't even use the number 3, you spelled it out. Like it's a big announcement.

    The old man, seeing he is unknown may well be the archetype of the wise old man. The part of you that seems to know what is going on, wisdom. And this part of you does not have a good relationship with you as it is an unknown old man.

    There seems to be an attitude or belief that you have devloped about your girlfriend as denoted by you driving, and there is definitely an ending involved as denoted by the stabbing. I would probably put my money on you having to kill of an attitude/belief about your girlfriend. If I read between the lines (and I could be well and truly wrong) it sounds like your g/f is more of an accessory.

    Just to be safe Matt, nothing in dreams is literal. It's always symbolic.

    Wait and see what others say about your dream.

    Re: my gf of three years gets stabbed

    What Stephen had to say about dreams being taken as literal is important. Don't take the dream as a literal action of someone stabbing your girlfriend. The dream may or may not have anything to do with your gf, and this stabbing surely has little to do if anything with a real stabbing of her. It is purely symbolic language, the language used in dreams {symbols and metaphor}.

    Something I noticed about the numbers in the dream. Your relationship with your gf has been going on for 3 years. She was stabbed in the dream 4 times. The last time you cried this much was when you were 7. 4 + 3 equals 7. It would not be unusual for a dream to use such symbols to portray deeper hidden messages. If there is a connection t would be to the recent experiences in your life that are associated to experiences when you were 7 years old. This is probably a remote possibility but a viable one.

    If there is a relationship the dream may be addressing the following:

    The language in the dream "i randomly catch this because for some reason unknown to me im driving a blue sedan" may be addressing repressed or forgotten experiences of depression or 'blue' feelings {blue sedan-the sedan or car is you}.
    The girl in your dream would not represent your actual girlfriend but would be an anima figure-your own feminine aspect.

    For this to fit there would have been memorial experiences {yet repressed due to the emotional pain} when you were 7 years old. What was the experience when you were 7 that made you cry? Has there been similar experiences of recent that may have happened? Or something that recently occurred that made you remember those emotions when you were 7? Look at this possibility and let me know your reaction. We may be able to gain further insights with your reply.
