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.

    school

    School was the theme of my dreams in the last two nights. In the first night I was in the college trying to find a room to stay. But then, as I was deciding, two policemen came and said I had not paid insurance, so had to do that soon. Later I was alone in my room, and someone was on the other side of the door, trying to enter... a thief. In the rest of the dream, I felt threatened that someone wanted to steal my things.

    This night, I was in the college again, in a class. My mother was there too, beside another woman, who was quiet and was watching what I was doing. My mother was saying things that sounded quite stupid, that were supposed to make others laugh but did not. I asked her to stop doing this.

    Thanks for your input.

    Re: school

    Elona,
    Schools provide an education for the future. Your dreams provide an education about yourself, in the present {with the past often included, depicting who you are in the present}. Colleges provide higher education. This dream symbol may represent higher understanding of some aspect of your psyche.

    The room you are looking for in the dream may be a place within yourself that needs to be found. That may involve unconscious experiences from your past.

    Insurance may be a symbol for security. Police provide protection. The unconscious experiences may be aspects that need to be acknowledged but they are hidden away so to provide security from confronting the emotional pain {this is the ego at work-denying the conscious mind of emotional trauma so not to have to endure the pain}. The thief may be the ego. It threatens you because if it becomes conscious the emotional pain will result from it.

    The stupid remarks intended to make others laugh. This may be the way the conscious mind covers up the emotional pain {laughter as a remedy to pain}. But the stupid remarks may also represent actual experiences. If you can not find associations in your waking life to your mother {regarding the stupid remarks} then she may represent personal aspects.

    What is it that needs to be stopped? Examine those aspects of your life {things that need to be stopped}. Is there unconscious experiences that cause pain when you give thought to it that needs to confronted? I get the impression there are personal associations to the dream that only you can understand. Let me know your thoughts and perhaps the pieces will fit better.

    Re: school

    Gerard,

    Thank you for this interpretation: I had thought it had to do with learning something about me, but could not make a linkage with the other themes in my dream.
    The truth is that I have learned about myself a lot, and it wasn’t a result of one month, but maybe years, that’s why I probably see it as a college in my dream.

    I am indeed looking for a place within me where I store my deepest emotional pains and hurt feelings and some events in the everyday life have triggered this search or have awakened them somehow. But I am not ready to confront this without “insurance”. Not yet I guess. At the same time, no policemen seems reassuring to me. I find your interpretation of the “thief” as very right on: it may very well be my ego, who in attempt to resolve issues, is trying to interfere with the raw material that my unconscious faithfully holds. I can see this in my conscious life: I am always trying to come to terms with how I feel and why I feel that way, many times regretting what I did and blaming myself over.

    Stupid remarks are indeed actual experiences, as my mother is involved in such situations in certain occasions, however it may represent the part of me that I see as similar to her – which I fear so much – thus talking stupidly in the public.

    What is it that needs to be stopped? I need to stop blaming myself for what has happened in the past, I need to stop dreaming of how things could have been if I behaved differently, I need to stop regretting and suffering about what I did not achieve and start living life. Maybe I am learning this, but it’s taking awhile.

    Re: school

    Elona,
    "I need to stop blaming myself for what has happened in the past". That is often the problem. Even if there were instances where you were to blame you need to reconcile those experiences and move on. If others were hurt due to your actions {I have such experiences from my past} then I suggest repentance and reconciliation with those you caused pain. Mending the pain is essential for both yourself and others.

    On the other hand, if was you who was harmed then you need to reconcile that. Often those who are victims are made to feel they were to blame {a usual tactic by the abuser}. That must be confronted, as well as the person{s} who caused the harm. That may be the lesson of the higher education {college}. The thief may be these people, stealing your piece of mind and still causing you pain. Confronting abuse and abusers is a delicate thing and should be done with others who are aware of the experiences. If done properly you will be able to reconcile the painful experiences and move on.
    Let's hope that can be done. Animus aspects may be required. Take control and do what needs to be done to put this behind you {as best as possible}. I believe you are heading in the right direction.
