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.

    To Surf, Perchance To Dream

    It was fourteen years ago in October of 1998 I was quoted in a New York Times article To Surf, Perchance to Dream, the subject topic being the prevalence of computers in our dreams. It starts out with metaphorical references.

    IF you dream that your hard drive is crashing, do you wake up just before the Fatal System Error message appears? What would be the meaning of a dream about a cursor that was frozen, not flashing, on a blank screen? And in scrutinizing nightmares about computers, are there times when a hard drive is really just a hard drive?

    I was still very much in my infancy in my Jungian education and that this opportunity to be quoted in a major newspaper seems ironic to where I am today. Not that the subject of the article had much importance in my experiences in working with dreams {in the 3000+ dreams I have interpreted at the Dream Forum there have been only a handful of dreams on the subject of computers} but the relationship of the article to my 'internet' life and my Jungian quest for knowledge was a prelude to what was to come in my hero quest to wholeness. From those early beginnings of knowing little about Jungian psyche, and with at best a rudimentary website {the web link given in the article is not working but the original link is still available at} my journey has nether the less been constant and progressive. One need only to 'Google' Dream Forum/s to see my high position in WORLD rankings. In terms of my path to wholeness I attribute that success and progression not only to Jung and his wisdom but to Joseph Campbell who said in my first encounter with him {The Power of Myth on PBS in 1992}, his words being 'you may find that, with a proper introduction, mythology will catch you". As with the references in the article pertaining to metaphor it was the introduction to mythology that provided m with the understanding of the importance to metaphor in dreams and the relationship of dreams and myth.

    As for web design and that aspect of importance to my journey. Fourteen years ago designing websites were an interest that was just beginning to evolve. Today I have at least nine websites with several having Google rankings at the top of the list in their categories. My website Melbourne Dreams & Metaphysics and The Power of Dreams {my dream interpretation site localized for the Melbourne/Space Coast Florida} occupies several top positions with Google and Bing. Some of the search terms for which these local sites have high rankings are }, 'metaphysics melbourne fl', 'dreams melbourne fl', dream interpretation melbourne fl' {my websites holds 3 of the 4 top positions under this category}, plus many other combination of terms involving related subject matter relevant to these sites. I am feverishly working to push my Creative Thinking Web Design website to higher positions since it will be a prime source of supplemental income. Working part time building websites {I do enjoy creating websites and pages} will allow me to work with dreams and the deeper psyche.

    The subject of computers in dreams may not have become an 'archetypal' symbol that prevails in our nightly dreams but there is no doubt this instrument of technology has become a vital device in our lives. And its relevance to the dream world has taken a turn toward focusing on Jungian psyche which in its doing so provides millions of people with the opportunity to discover a path to healing and wholeness. Without access to Jung I never would have gotten to a higher position in life. Nor would I possess the high position on the internet with my websites {which are, in the creative sense, deeper expressions of oneself}. Not bad for a layperson in field typically reserved for greater minds. It goes to show that in a 'position of positions' the 'intuitive' psyche is as important to understanding as is higher learning in the world of academics. Having access to the collective knowledge is not merely a matter of higher education but one of higher understanding.
    Can that be understood?
