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.

    Joseph Campbell, Elementary Ideas & Archetypes

    Thoughts of appreciation to Joseph Campbell while reading/listening to Anthony Stevens 'Jung-A Very Short Introduction'.

    The strong influence of Joseph Campbell is greatly responsible for any understanding of Jungian psyche I may have. I think that has been well established from my posts in this forum and my several websites {3 primary sites} dedicated to dreams and Jungian psyche. If asked I would dscribe myself as a disciple of Campbell and a serious student of Jung. Campbell is the sole reason I even know of Jung and dreams since it was that 'chance' encounter 20 years ago I learned that were such a thing. His The Power of Myth is what caught my attention that day, his articulation of myth to dream what 'caught' me and still holds me all this time later. In his book Transformations of Myth Through Time he illuminated me to Bastion's "Elementary Ideas", Elementargedanken". Primordial thoughts. This of course is Jung's archetypes, articulated by Campbell in an understandable language even a layperson's mind can understand. To even begin to interpret dreams there must be an understanding of the archetypes. It is the structure from which the psyche is built and its fundamental concept a derivative of the fundamentals of all nature. Any insights to dreams I may possess can be traced back to the instillation of the elementary thought. And the relationship of myth to dreams.

    If you have not read the links I have provided I encourage you to do so. It may provide a different perspective on something you already. For those novice in Jungian psyche like myself it may be truly illuminating. A primary purpose for my designing my websites is to pass on to others this important knowledge so they to may discover a path to wholeness. In my thinking doing that is a spiritual thing. Passing on acquired knowledge from experiences is a spiritual act, fulfilling one of the requirements in achieving Individuation. It also an important component of the hero journey. Thus the following applies:

    We have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us — the labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world..
