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.

    then i said when i realized what i did i said I'm sorry i didn't mean to hit you I hugged my sister then i said i guess it's just lately mom has been stressing me out and put it out on you I'm sorry.
    the end ?

    Re: dream slapped sister,being rushed to get my money ready for lessons,mom stressed.

    Hi Kelly,

    These are some pretty serious events in your life, especially for your age at the time.

    The thing that amazes me is how some people expect their children to act and behave like adults before they hit their teens. It's not fair. Where is the fun in that. Aren't parents suppose to just love, nurture and protect?

    Yesterday, I was watching a mother and father Plover (birds) with 3, day old chicks. These chicks have the instincts to start feeding themselves from the get go and they were free to investigate and explore their surroundings (I'm talking acres). The mother and father birds stayed close but not restrictive. They fought off predators, while the chicks pecked the ground. If the danger was too close then the mother would step in make a warning sqwark and the chicks would rush to under her. It was truly marvelous to watch.

    The dream, I feel is making a comment on your real life situations and how it realtes to you (your ego). When did you get to have fun? When did you get to explore? When did you get the opportunity to find your legs? As you said "I had to dance around everyone else. It is reminding you of the pressures of the past and how easy it is to think of everyone elses needs, rather than your own. Do you notice the parrallel with getting your independence with your license, to getting your independence with so many obstacles in your path with your family.

    If you are getting your license, then get it for you. Don't get it if it is to drive other people around. It's time to think of you for a change. Be a little narcisstic (not a lot). Slap those obligations in the face - the ones that keep on creeping into your head.

    Does any of this click with you?

    Hi Stephen
    it does click especially the bird story cause i would like that support for me going to college be there but don't be domineering in my life choices for going to college.
    i love the plover(birds) story thank you so much for sharing that with me I wish i would have that guidance.
    exactly i like the way you interpreted it honestly i never really go to explore. i got to have fun but i had to hound my mother i would find a defiant answer the day of the party of plans and would always hold it over my head over everything.
    i feel getting a license/car I will be experiencing my own legs and getting a license right on it's not a favor to anyone else but myself but then again it is cause they don't hav to drive me around but that's only a chip off the 'huge' block I want my freedom lol.
    thank you so much stephen I really am so grateful for your help, I try everyday to be balanced in relation to self we all need to be alittle self centered but not too much.
    well i will be on again thank you again very helpful.

    kelly.

    Re: dream slapped sister,being rushed to get my money ready for lessons,mom stressed.

    Hi Kelly,
    The interpretation worked because you were so generous with your background.

    I must tell you, I recently found out that when I was born, my mother was unable to care for me (postpartum depression), so my father pulled my eldest sister out of school and told her to look after me. That was 49 years ago. When I found this out I started crying, profusely. No one had ever mentioned this to me. All I could think of was the sacrifice my sister endured. I am eternally grateful to her.

    I am glad the dream has some understanding for you. I wish you well on your driving test.

    Re: dream slapped sister,being rushed to get my money ready for lessons,mom stressed.

    hello stephen,
    wow that is an amazing sister you have.
    what happen with the post partum depression that she couldn't take care of you if it's not too personal of course i just don't know the symptoms too well.
    im sorry you had that happen.


    here's another freaky dream thank you so much in advance
    i think i can understand but i want another view on it.
    it all started when i was in a basement it was dark with little light and there were 2 dogs down there and my roomie(?) was going away for abit so i remember i kept going down to the basement alot the third time the dogs kinda scared me so i decided i would find somewhere else to stay which this was me staying at my school for some reason so i went to find someone and asked them can i stay with you(she lived outside of the school) for abit cause i don't want to be alone I feel scared there.

    then she said sure you will pay rent etc.
    then the next thing i know im coming up the school stairs going to the hs level and the security guard says go back down your not suppose to be up here before i go down he says something which i can't remember too well but he seemed like he was friendly with me and then i said something(laughed) then left.

    then in another part i am walking up to my school and it's night time and there alot of people around then i walk inside i see a police man/security guard(serious ones not hs ones) he just lets me pass by
    then i go inside it's really dark and only a few lights are on i go up to a stranger and ask what's going on? they reply you don't know there was shooting here and eleven people were killed in it from our school then we just reflected for a minute.
    the next thing i am branching off with a few others to go hide cause we didn't trust that they were not going to come back.
    so we go to gym room first contemplate things then decide to hide even more we were in like a back office
    or janitorial all lights were off.
    were all being very quiet and feeling really scared about the situation.
    next thing i know im looking out a window and were at least like 6-maybe 8 stories high
    im looking down there's a commotion going on and i see a big buff man holding his arm out and he starts shooting it multiple times and police tries to get him. then i get really scared so i get my phone to my mother the phone keeps ringing she doesn't pick up.
    that was my weird dream from last night i startled awake after that felt tense and scared i still feel the feeling of being afraid even though it was just a dream.

    Re: dream slapped sister,being rushed to get my money ready for lessons,mom stressed.

    Hi Kelly,
    I don't know what symptoms my mother had that prevented her from looking after me. No one discussed that aspect and it really wasn't that important.

    It took me a while to find connections with your dream. It was a tough one for me, but my thinking function (rational) attached it to your question of going back to college at Syracuse.

    The thing to understand is that our environment conditions us (attitudes/beliefs/perceptions) to behave in particular ways and the dream highlights to me that you are surrounded by drama (the hint came from the question you asked about my mother's symptoms). Your family life to date has had a lot of drama and you seem to defend yourself by being aware of it in the first place, so you can take a defensive/offensive position. To me that is what you are conditioned to do. That is how your mother conditioned you. It's not right or wrong, it's just the way it is. There are no accidents.

    So, what I think the dream is commenting on, is until you can stop this automatic reaction, your experience in college will be all about the drama of the experience and not about the learning experience (end up being a waste of money). It is time to stop relying on your mother's conditioning to get you through life.

    I have had a few dreams myself about 2 dogs. It took me quite4 a while to figure it out. Marie Louise von Franz says that 2 of anything is a sure sign that something is coming up from the unconscious. But it wasn't until i stopped using the word 'two' and replace it with the word 'pair' that the magic of this symbol appeared. It's a pair of dogs and if you say it really quickly over and over again, it sounds like 'paradox'. I've dreamt of 2 ducks and 2 dots as well, which basically does the same thing. The definition of 'paradox' is "A statement that is seemingly contradictory or opposed to common sense and yet is actually true." And this is the land of opposites, where the unconscious and conscious meets.

    Does any of this click with you, Kelly?

    Re: dream slapped sister,being rushed to get my money ready for lessons,mom stressed.

    the conditioning is the hard part how do i break that
    i do see the offensive/defensive in me alot
    how can i overcome her ways that she put on me i don't want her to have such a negative impact mentally.
    just to understand more can you give me some examples of the offensive/defences tactics,sayings,reactions, or site link.
    oh yeah there's been major drama in my family.
    I really want college to be a learning curve not something that is the result of my mothers ways.
    how can i work with that? be truely independent.
    you think counseling will work? cause im going this summer for it.
    thank you so much i like where you say
    It is time to stop relying on your mother's conditioning to get you through life.
    that saying put a whole new spin on it.

    the paradox theory makes sense to me with the dogs
    cause(hopefully i get this right hehe) it's my unconscious telling me something?

    thank you again so much.

    Re: dream slapped sister,being rushed to get my money ready for lessons,mom stressed.

    Hi Kelly,
    Being aware of the conditioning is a big start. You can catch yourself falling into it. I guess this is where the big fear is. If this conditioning goes, what is left, or what is it replaced by? I guess the answer is 'Life' - yours.

    If I was you I would use the college experience as a way of reconditioning yourself. Treat each experience as something totally new and see where it takes you, without the inner dialogue that was bestowed upon you by your family. Sometimes the experieinces will be good and sometimes they will be bad. Sometimes they will be boring and sometimes they will be exciting. But, they will be your experiences. You can decide not to go to college as well and avoid all those experiences as well.

    Only you can answer the question about seeking professional help, Kelly.

    That reminds me of a joke...

    Question: How many psychologists does it take to change a lightbulb?

    Answer: Only one, but the lightbulb has to want to change to begin with.

    Here's to your future, Kelly. Whatever it may bring.

    Re: dream slapped sister,being rushed to get my money ready for lessons,mom stressed.

    HI Kelly,

    I have a feeling the deeper meaning of this dream is the cycle of rebirth (renewal) and death. Sort of ike the Phoenix. So as a compensation, the dream is pointing your mother in that direction. Not, as in the literal "life and death", but the psyche's structure. Living a life of activites that are new, continue for a while and then stop. Like recreating herself on a regular basis. If this interpretation rings true than it would probably be a compensation for being in a rut, no change, habitual.
