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.

    Dreams of nun's habit and monastery life

    Two nights ago I dreamed that I was looking at clothing laid out on the bed and the outfit that I chose was a gray nun's habit with a stiff white headpiece not completely unlike that of the Flying Nun (without the wings!) Last night I dreamed that I decided to enter a monastery (not a convent.) I'm wondering how I might be able to learn something from these two rather similar dreams.

    Hi Beth,

    What has been happening in your life lately?

    Are there any personal memories about nun's clothing?

    How would you describe being a 'Nun' to me?

    Re: Dreams of nun's habit and monastery life

    Beds are often indicative of those intimate layers within our psyche/selves, and clothes usually denote those expressions of emotion and behaviour that we 'wear', your dream imparting that on some intimate layer within your self you have a 'propensity' to become slightly depressive. The colour grey indicates these feelings of depression or lack of vitality, and the nuns 'habit' indicate that these feelings are more a 'habit' or natural tendency through which you choose to donn.

    In life we have choices but as humans we are also creatures of 'habit' choosing things which are familiar to us.

    the stiff white headpiece may also indicate that there is rigdity of thinking within oneself that leads to a colourless feeling state from time to time, this rigidity of thinking may be around ones own sexuality or some other expression of self that you see in or mirror in a nun. Overall your dream seems to impart the idea that you have choices and that what you feel on occasion is only through your choice to feel this way, its very selective in the sense that it may be a tendency that youve had for years to feel a certain way, Through a little attention one can start to recognise the habit of certain feeling tendencys, as when we recognise how we choose to feel vertain ways we can then proceed to change those tendencys.

    Just some avenues to explore

    best to you Marce

    Clothing often symbolizes your persona or your self image. The grey color may indicate you are not sure about this self image. The nun's habit may represent a choice of appearing chaste, or even as unmarried woman, a maiden.
    The second dream may indicate you are looking for the same qualities in a man; unmarried.

    Has there been any recent experiences where the marital status {yourself or someone else?} was prominent? Or do you want to present yourself as a 'free' woman who is available {for courtship}?
