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.

    Re: What does this dream mean?

    With such little info from the dream it is hard to pin down a true explanation of your dream. But don't be nervous or frightened by such dreams. They are natural. Do not take them as literal {other than the relationship with your grandmother}.

    Your mother's dream may have a different interpretation but would also most likely represent the relationship between them.

    As for your dream. A grave often symbolizes the unconscious, your unconscious. Your grandmother has made the final transition but within your unconscious, your dreams, she still speaks to you. She is gone from this earth but not from your consciousness. And you were in her consciousness when she left.

    The part about the grandfather. That may get into aspects of the relationship that is personal and only you can know the details. Dreams of younger people often do that. Personal information being addressed more so than 'inner' conflicts that an older person would have as a result of past experiences {which could also have your grandparents representing metaphorical aspects as well as literal}.

    As for your mother's dream. if you could provide more details I may be able to provide better insights. that goes for your dream as well.

    Re: What does this dream mean?

    Hi zee,

    Thank you for sharing your dream. I noticed a pattern that has been written about by Hans Christian Andersen. It's the "Little Match Girl". Do you kow it? If not there are plenty of texts available over the internet. Why don't you read it and see what transpires. It may even shed some light to your mother as well. But don' take the fairy tale literally. It's a metaphor. After you read it a couple of times you may well get your answer to the dream. There's also a beautiful rendition of it on Disney's latest DVD release of "The Little Mermaid". Probably read the story first then watch the DVD.
