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.

    Series of bizarre dreams

    Hello all.

    Im posting on here out of curiosity, and a desire to find some sort of meaning. I have a series of strange dreams recently and I think they are some expression of a problem i have currently.

    roughly 3 months ago i suffered a series of panic attacks, and since then i have had a huge amount of general anxiety originally at the stage where i was too afraid to do pretty much anything - even leaving the house was a challenge. Since then i have improved greatly, my anxiety has decreased a lot and i have returned to uni (although i am home at the moment).

    Anyway, over the last few weeks i have had a few strange dreams, most of which i cant remember. Generally they have kick started my anxiety again but im learning to not react to these dreams and im attempting to find some sort of meaning in them.

    The first dream was at my uni halls. My friends were coming back from a night out, and i was outside of the halls. I heard them coming and tried to hide from them in the shadows, but they saw me and i had to join them. They were all drunk and offered me a joint which i took, although i really didnt want it. I went back to my halls and then was in trouble with my hall warden for wearing a fluorescent jacket. I wasn't scared by the events individually in the dream, but there was a great deal of anxiety generally in the dream.

    The second one was only last night. Originally i was out in a garden at my old house, and for some reason i had killed 2 men who i dont know. I was trying to hide them. Then later on i was with a group of friends, and we were all messing around and i stabbed a friend of mine. Although i intended to stab him, noone had realised how bad it was until i suggested he went to hospital. He came back within minutes and was absolutely fine and accepted my apology. I was definitely feeling a bit guilty for stabbing him though! I have absolutely no bad feelings towards him whatsoever, hes a good friend but not particularly close. I cant find any reason why it should be him.

    For some reason i feel these dreams important to finally getting over my anxiety problems. Any help would be nice!

    Re: Series of bizarre dreams

    Harry,
    Do you know what was behind your panic attacks? Have there been other such events in the past? Since you are doing better have you discovered any more as to the cause of your anxieties?

    To your dreams. More often dreams of someone your age are addressing waking life conflicts and not the deeper conflicts normally addressed in the dreams of an older person. But because of your panic attacks and general anxieties I will look for those deeper conflicts. The second dream does seem to be addressing deeper aspects.

    The uni halls may be addressing the 'higher learning' connected with your anxieties. Hiding in the shadows suggests there are 'shadows' in your life you may not wish to acknowledge. But because of these attacks you are forced to confront them {they saw me and i had to join them". Being drunk {look at the friends as aspects of your own psyche} may represent a 'wanting to forget something'. The joint is a drug. Are you taking medications for your condition? The jacket covers up the body. Fluorescent may indicate those things in the shadows are being illuminated to force you to acknowledge those hidden things. Being in trouble with the hall warden {another aspect of yourself} would represent inner trouble or conflicts.

    If this dream is addressing more personal and recent waking experiences then the message would be more straightforward and addressing every day anxieties {other than the more serious anxiety attacks}. Is there anything in the dream that fits with recent experiences, friends being drunk, trouble with hall wardens?

    The second dream.
    Something is growing within you that may be from your past {garden, old house}. Something has died within you that you are trying to hide {unconsciously hiding}. Most likely the stabbing is something you have done/or doing to yourself {{but most likely not literally}. Perhaps this represents harm or pain you are doing to yourself. It is not something you want to do. The healing is fairly rapid.

    My sense is the dreams are addressing not so much the cause of your panic attacks {at least not the underlying physical or psychological causes} but the reasons these attacks come about. Do you take medications for these attacks? Are there times when you don't take the medications like you should and the anxieties recur? What you do to other people in your dreams is usually symbolic of what you may be doing to yourself {unless of course in real life you killed two men and stabbed another}. You state you are feeling better. Is that because you sought on medical advice {hospital} and you are taking your medications as prescribed?
    As far as the underlying causes for you anxieties. Has that been diagnosed? Is it a chemical imbalance or some experience from your past that may be the cause?

    Let me know your response and perhaps we can gain further insights to these dreams.
