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've murdered, again

    I had another dream last night where, when I wake up, I must get right with myself to discern if I really have killed someone. I haven't, of course, but the fact that I have to think if I really did when I wake up I find interesting.

    Last night I dreamt that I knew my Father had killed his best friend (who was my Godfather, and was actor Robert Blake in the dream - who's in jail for murder). Dad had shot him, and dumped his body in a small river. I knew this and was anxious about it. In the next small dream segment (I woke up and fell back to sleep), I was riding my ex-husband's motorcyle, and smaller version of his Harley.

    The first murder dream of a month ago, I killed a woman. This dream of a man, I am an accomplice, of sorts.

    Thank you for any insights.

    Re: I've murdered, again

    Maureen,
    Was there ever any conflict between your Father and your Godfather. That is a possibility for the inclusion of that part of the dream. But it would be minor since the dream would be addressing your emotional state of being and not your Father's.

    These symbols are most likely symbolic of aspects within your psyche. The murder theme would reinforce this. Could there be a connection to your job and the new guy from your last dream post? Killing people in a dream often represents 'changes' in life, eliminating aspects that need to go. Th Father figure could represent your higher self and your Godfather another supreme aspect. You state in your last post you let God take care of the details. Perhaps there is a connection there.

    The dream ends with you riding your ex's motorcycle, a smaller version. Is this a comparison of some sort. Going back to your past, realizing a smaller version in your present life?

    I have intentionally, earnestly been working on letting go of old emotional baggage - men I've let go of physically but not emotionally. It's a house cleaning. Old boyfriend I pined for, the divorce, and the current boyfriend who I just don't have deep feelings for. It's all getting out of my system, once and for all. It makes sense, all this dream killing I've been doing!

    The smaller bike could symbolize the younger version of Me that I am looking at. I picked a snippet of my life when I seemed to have a higher degree of hope and faith, in everything. It slipped away, and it's time to get "it" back.

    Thanks again, Gerard.

    Re: I've murdered, again

    Maureen,
    The best person to interpret your dream is you. Your statement about the motorcycle {in your last post} being a younger version of you shows you are beginning to see, and understand, what your dream is wishing to communicate. Which of course is the condition {especially emotional condition} of your life. When one begins to delve into 'inner space' they either become adapt at understanding what is there or they run away and bury the evidence deeper. Dreams are a way to help with the inner search. The more you work with your dreams the more you learn about yourself. Your last response is a positive trend in this education.
