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.

    Christ in dream

    Would you help me understand the following dream? Jesus was facing the cross which was on the ground. His limbs were not nailed. He was in bad shape and I was on top of him, holding and "spooning" him in order to comfort him...I then thought I need to leave him and as I started to move away his hand reached for me pulled me once again against his body closely and he said "don't leave me... stay here and comfort me"..End of Dream

    Hi Joan,

    After reading your dream once the word that entered my brain was 'needy', so if we follow this line of thought with the symbols, the dream would be making a comment on 'neediness' and 'sacrifice'. So Joan, do you tend to sacrifice your own needs by attending to the needs of others, in order for your own neediness to be satisfied?

    I don't know whether it is right or wrong. Only you do. Does it click within you and have you had a situation in your real life recently that mirrors this comment?

    Hi Joan,

    Does the dream remind you of anything? Read the dream a few times and see if anything comes to mind.

    Re: Christ in dream

    I think on the surface there is a sense of "neediness" in that when one suffers it is a great comfort to know your loved...in a sense it cuts the pain in half....but I wonder if also the "person" of Christ represents an authentic movement of the personality to it's true self versus a mask. Could a direction or movement in my conscious life be the exactly correct choice? This dream has produced a great sense of PEACE in me.

    Re: Christ in dream

    Hi Joan,

    When a dream is amplified to a myth/fable or story I tend to compare the two to see if there are any differences. There is one that stands out. In the dream, Jesus (the man) wants to be comforted by you. Yet, in the biblical story all anyone showed him was pain, except when one of the soldiers offered him wine vinegar. The story is about fulfilling ones destiny, and this brings the pain of change along with it. Yet your dream ego is all about comforting. A part of yourself can't deal with this type of pain connected with change. Jesus as a symbol of transformation is all about painful change. You know he has to be crucified, yet you continue to comfort him, beacuse he asked you to. In a way it's like putting off the inevitible, don't you think? He doesn't become Christ the God, until Jesus the man has died. Your dream ego is not ready to leave its hold.

    Re: Christ in dream

    Joan,
    When Jesus faced the cross he was about to undergo a death and resurrection. Jesus could represent your inner self, that guiding light that is the ground {base} of who you are. Perhaps you are experiencing a sort of 'death and resurrection' of your own. That inner self may be in bad shape and you need to experience a feeling of 'being alive'. Gradually you may be working your way {spooning} in that direction but 'life' {social being of responsibilities and necessities} keeps 'pulling' you away from your intended goals.

    Another possibility that fits with the above. Death and resurrection would indicate changes in your life {inner and/or outer ego life}. The last part of the dream "don't leave me... stay here and comfort me". Most likely that is directed at your inner self. But it could represent an actual 'leaving' by some person or experience in your waking life that would affect your inner core.

    Re: Christ in dream

    Stephen, one interesting aspect is in the dream I began to move away because I thought (in the dream) that I have to let him be in order that he can finish "his work". ???

    Re: Christ in dream

    Joan,
    The 'death and resurrection' in your dream may indicate you need to finally confront the past experience that has dragged on for so long. Your 'higher Self' {Jesus} did not have his limbs nailed which may symbolize an 'ability' to confront this past experience. Instead of 'spooning' the experience it may be time to take that step to put the past into perspective and its proper place. Moving away from that higher Self only causes the suffering to continue. You possess the 'ability' to do this using that higher Self, the recognition of the conflict of the past and the ability to finally get past it. It will no longer hold you down and and you will no longer have a need to move away from your true self {the self which is free from the past}.

    The tree dream is also addressing this 'beautifully shaped self' {Mother Theresa called Jesus her beautiful lover}. The outside is swampy but the inside beautiful. What seemed dead can be resurrected if in unison you utilize the higher Self and the ego self to confront this on going conflict. The trees are in unison, together, as is the physical body and the spiritual Self {Jesus}.

    Your progression in overcoming the past, is there signs of a final 'death and resurrection'? Does it remain a matter of ability to do so?

    Re: Christ in dream

    Gerard, Through a series of dreams six years ago I received a tremendous healing from an incident which happened to me as a seven year old child. I am beginning to now understand that further or "deeper" healing is unfolding. As I read your response my heart is reacting the same way in which in does when these dreams awaken me from a deep sleep...panicky feeling..which I have come to understand is something I need to take seriously. I feel frightened but also very ready to allow the healing to "crucify" what needs to be put to death. I am ready to fully TRUST the process. Maybe by honoring these dreams through dialogue the fear will let go to the freedom awaiting me. Thank you for the time you put into reviewing both these dreams together. This is a beautiful ministry and if people only knew the profound healing that can occur when one honors the "inner world". Thank you for your kindness...Joan

    Re: Christ in dream

    Hi Joan,

    I read some of the responses to your dream, all of which are interesting. I thought I would just weigh in with this one little thought. The one time Jesus asked not to be left and asked to be comforted was when he was in the garden of Gethsemane. So, if it were my dream, I would go back to that story, meditate on it, and see what that opens up for me.

    I've been blessed to have had many dreams about Jesus for many years, so I was delighted to see your dream about him.

    Joan,
    "if people only knew the profound healing that can occur when one honors the "inner world"."

    That statement represents a truth that I wish to spread to as many people as I can. Inner truths are most valuable. It takes courage to even confront many of those truths. Then being able to recognize them....
    Thank you for recognizing your inner strength.
