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.

    Another of My Dreams and Jung's Approach to Interpreting It

    Remembered another dream upon waking last night about moving two separate times to a new residence. The first was from a home I lived with my mother into a home that seemed to really fit. The second move was from that home to a home where a younger man lived, he already living there. A scene from that move showed me taking a bath {no ladies, there was no exposure of my deliciously tight and tanned 62 year old body} in an large outdoor sized pool. While taking the bath several other young men came in, friends of the younger guy I was sharing the residence. The young man who I shared the home with also wanted to take a bath {separately} so I needed to hurry to finish my bath. I had a hard time finding the soap and had to use shampoo instead. My last though in the dream was 'why did I move from the second home where I was comfortable to this house full of younger men?".

    The dream stayed with me this morning after I awoke without much effort in retaining it. Reflecting on the dream I readily interpreted it. And as usual it depicted what was going on in my waking life. That aspect of the dream is what I really want to comment on, the fact dreams reflect the true emotions of the dreamer using symbol and metaphor. Having worked with dreams for 15 years, more than 8 years at this Forum, I can equivocally say Jung got it right when it comes to understanding dream. Time and again I find my interpretations fitting the dream contents {primarily other people's dreams}. Of course the reason I know this is from the response I get from the dreamer after my interpretation. It is easy to think 'how great I am' when the ego needs boosting but when there is a supply of evidence that is from a deeper source it would hard to explain otherwise {about the correctness of the interpretations}. And now that I am able to put 100% effort into my dream work I see even more positive results, and a confirmation of Jung's approach.

    I have been a defender of Jung's theories from the beginning when I was interpreting dreams at other venues and confronting different theories. I can see now that the intuitive aspects that allow me to 'see into a dream' was there long before I realized I possessed a higher level of intuitive awareness. Jung has withstood the test of time, that is evident from Googling dreams and dream interpretation and the results overwhelmingly producing Jungian pages {which was not the case when I first began building websites and using the internet in 1998}. I must say every now and then I think about returning to those other dream venues and 'say I told you so'. But that is not very spiritual is it?

    As for the interpretation to my dream. When I moved to Palm Bay, Fl from Murfreesboro, Tn. I left my aging mother behind {she lived 20 minutes from me}. The first move to a home that fitted was to Palm Bay, a move after taking early retirement, something I had been wanting and planning to do for a long time. The final move to the younger man's house. Well that is my second career {after 34 years as a contractor} of working with dreams. But more than that it is the arranging workshops and classes on dreams. Yesterday I finalized the first workshop with my new minster at the UU Church in Melbourne. He, his wife {who has experience working with dreams using Jung and will help facilitate the class} sat down and made the final arrangements after church. I also have meetings with the minister of the UU church in Vero Beach and with the owner of a well established metaphysical bookstore to discuss classes and workshops.

    The young men in the second new move. Partly reflecting my anima but also probably having to do with my contacting a local college to advertise the first workshop. And not having soap while taking my bath. That is one that will need further investigation but probably has to do with the 'cleansing' I feel I am getting, a renewal, due to the efforts I have put into making come true my desire to do what I am actually, and finally able to do in working with dreams. The replacement shampoo is easy to explain {on one level}. I have gone from using regular soap to using body wash, which of course comes in bottles, as does shampoo.

    Amazing how dreams will take different aspects of the dreamer's life and make a riddle of them. It is like putting a puzzle together, and at the same time an investigation similar to that of a detective. Add an ounce of Edgar Cayce and you!

    Does that sound like an 'ego' pronouncement? You must remember I am an extrovert and do fall short of perfect wholeness {we all do and will for ever do so}.
