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.

    Nostalgia

    I was hanging out with two female friends. We were shopping or having coffee or tea. Then we went our separate ways. I wanted to have one of them hang out with me in the evening, but they were both busy. Lonliness. Then I am in a house again. One of those houses I have been before with different rooms going into different rooms. Nice furniture with dark wood, lots of wood in different colors and decor in varying shades of brown and gold. Then I go around a corner and run into a guy. His face is strange at first. I can't tell if he is black, hispanic, or just dark. He is sort of bronze with a misshapen face. Kinda flattened out maybe like a pigs with big eyes. I think he has blue eyes. Then his face morphs into a handsome face with dark hair. He had a younger brother or younger friend. They are sweet and very
    smart. We solve a problem, but I can't remember what it was. Then I see in the horizon a hill and tons of birds flocking together and flying silhouetted against the sunset or sunrise and trees.

    Angel,
    Are you 'shopping' for a relationship but find yourself at times not wanting to go through the 'loops' in finding the right guy? Is your life overall pretty good but lacks that 'person' to share it with? There may be times when you feel like accepting any guy but deep down you long for your true soul mate? Having someone to share your life, could that be the problem that needs to be solved? Having that you would be able to live' happily ever after', riding off into the sunset.

    Angel,
    It's not everyday dreams speak with such clarity as this one did. Everything about the dream had a flow to it and I merely let my mind speak to what it saw in the symbols. The more I read dreams the more there seems to be a certain progression of the language and motifs {as Jung expounded in his philosophy of dreams}. It is more an intuitive thing as it is a mindful one. I do appreciate your response because it once again helps verify the Jungian approach is definitely the correct one.

    If things had been different earlier in my life I do believe I would have entered into some related field of psychology. I have always had an interest in the subject but circumstances early on were so ego centered I had no clue to those inner resources. Thankfully life presents us with two opportuinties to 'follow your bliss'. It is indeed a blissful thing being able to understand dreams. And there is double enjoyment in it helps others discover their inner resources. Campbell tells us we all possess an innate desire to serve others. There are many ways to do that. Dreams and the psyche just happen to fit with who I am. It is a part of the 'Individuation Process' of self discovery, being who you truly are and doing wehat you truly love doing.

    Individuation: Jung believed that a human being is inwardly whole, but that most of us have lost touch with important parts of our selves. Through listening to the messages of our dreams—and of our creative imagination—we can reach the lost or neglected parts of our selves and reintegrate them. According to Jung, this integration is the goal of life.
