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.

    Nearly Survived

    This dream happened quite a while ago and while i can remember all my dreams for a couple of days, i have never forgotten this one.
    I was shopping with my mum in a crowded shopping centre full of people. There was one man and although i never got a clear view of him i knew he was evil and wanted to kill me. I don't know how i knew i could just sense it but when i told my mum she laughed it off and told me i was 'being stupid'. Even though i was really angry with her i stayed very close becasue i was now being followed by this man. While my mum's back was turned he made a grab for me so naturally i screamed. My mum, as well as several strangers, all shot round to look at me and while i stood speechless the man laughed it off as 'bumping into me and startling me' which everyone accepted. However he didn't leave my side and knowing he'd only make another grab, i ran. He chased after me until we were outside and alone and although i was petrified i knew i had to do something so i fought back. He pulled out a knife and we both struggled with it until two police officers turned up. I felt a sudden rush of relief until they arrested us both.
    Next thing i know we're doing community service, handcuffed together, so there is literally no escape for me. While an officers back is turned he pulls out the same knife and attacks me again. No one looks round as i struggle and scream and i just before i wake up he plunges the knife into my stomach.

    Re: Nearly Survived

    Men in dreams tend to portray in symbolic 'form' ways WE think, act and behave, not necessarily in a literal sense but in a manner that mirrors the same 'impulse' in our own thinking and behaviour.

    Its like the energy dynamic which is conveyed 'within' the character reflects our own energy dynamic, its ours we own it we give voice and action to the character this dynamic actually first arises from within us.

    All dreams reflect these dynamics, the man in your dream is reflecting that energy dynamic within you that is repressing you in some way it wants to be in control and this is a point of conflict for you in your life. The fact that you dont know 'him' reflects something about your own energies that is unfamiliar to you, we tend to label these unknown aspects of ourselves as evil particularly if they threaten us in some way, only what has been repressed is seen as evil, or what is perceived as evil in oneself gets repressed.

    By looking at your 'evil dream character' as a shadow aspect of your own nature, you find that he is not as evil as you first perceive but likely represents some form of behaviour or attitude that you have which gets in the way of following your gut instincts.

    The stomach represents those expereinces that we take in and digest in life, or not as the case may be, it is also linked to where we receive impressions about other people or situations we find ourselves in.

    When we are in tune with ourselves we act accordingly on what feels right or wrong for us, for example when we meet someone, out gut instinct measures up so much information about the other person before we have even conversed.

    Often people will find themselves in situations or in relationships that do not suit them their gut instinct is to get leave or get out out, it tells us when something is not quite right or if someone is not really good for our own emotional health and well being, when we ignore these instincts we go against what our bodys are telling us, We over ride our impressions if you like with actions that are dismissive of our situation.

    Your dream male is likely representing this form of dismissive behaviour, where by you go against your gut instinct in situations though with some conflict about what you are feeling and sensing.

    Do you have difficulty making decisions, or following your heart, instead doing things that you 'think' you should be doing for the wrong reasons rather than following your 'sense' about what is right for you.

    This I get the sense is the main gist of what your dream is trying to impart to you, though do not take my word for it, take what feels right for you and go with your own sense...

    Many blessings
