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.

    Rocking horse dream

    Hi, I was dreaming of being in my bed and dozing awake to find a rocking horse that is usually in my cupboard and that was made by my grandfather (deceased), was moving on it's own towards the bed.

    It then turned to it's right and moved alongside the bed.

    I then later found i could control it myself and pushed it backwards.

    Later i had got out of bed and was manically pointing my finger index right hand at the water bottle on the floor and causing it to move.

    It was as if i was drunk with the power of this ability.

    Athe time i was asleep i should have been in college. maybe this had something to do with the dream?....

    Re: Rocking horse dream

    I believe the bed and cupboard point to unconscious contents that are 'moving' forward and ready to become conscious {pointing to the unconscious is common opening language in many dreams}. The rocking horse could represent personal experiences {was there an actual rocking horse in your childhood}. But it could very well represent a 'rocking' horse with the horse being symbolic of psychic energy or some other representations. That energy may be related to an experience related with your grandfather.

    Moving right along aside the bed along with pushing it backwards suggests repressing these energies that need to be acknowledged {acknowledgement being the first step in the healing process}.

    But it could also represent an element of controlling certain aspects in your life. The 'power' may be something you possess in some aspect. Exactly what that is again may be personal experiences that only you can discern.

    You state the dream may be related to a need to be in college. Was there something that left this impression from the dream? Clarity is needed to understand the symbolic nature of the dream. Look at my suggestions and determine what may fit. If you can provide any personal experiences that will provide light to the dream message the symbolic rocking horse may be exposed as to its relevance.

    Re: Rocking horse dream

    Sorry for not replying earlier, bhave been very busy!

    over the last couple of days ive learnt that i don't listen to people..

    the rocking horse may have symbolised that im a learner/begginer...and that i don't have all the answers..

    perhaps the power bit was my ego thinking it was overcapable..

    just for clarity my grandfather made the rocking horse when i was young kid..and i loved him very much and listened to him..
