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.

    A Dream, Its Interpretation and Final Disposition-Part 2

    In the first part of the dream we looked at the first two aspects of the structured dream, the initial situation or 'Exposition' and the plot/development that contains something new to the initial situation. Now we will examine the rest of the dream, the crisis/crux or climax of the events and Lysis, or resolution or conclusion.

    Here is the first part of this post.

    The Crisis: It did land near him after jumping energetically all over the place. It landed near his hand and he was sitting on the floor and I thought ‘that’s it now.’ The man took something out of the toad’s mouth like a piece of false teeth or something like the toy teeth we used to get in lucky bags. It was covered in some sort of transparent film.

    Lysis/Resolution or conclusion: I was worried that he had put his hand in the toad’s mouth therefore he would be poisoned. The dream ended.

    Additional Comments: There is such a contrast between the toy element in the dream and the worry about poison.

    The Crisis

    The symbols that need to be amplified and examined are the man jumping energetically, landing on the floor, something out of the toad's mouth, false teeth, lucky bags and transparent film.

    • man jumping energetically: This masculine aspect is 'jumping' energetically within the dreamer's unconscious seeking attention. I sense this part involves an identity to a real man with a secondary focus on the dreamer's animus.

    • Landing on the floor: These past experiences are apart of the unconscious psyche affecting her grounding.

    • Out of the Toad's Mouth: The ugly experiences within the unconscious are now 'expressing' themselves through her dreams

    • False Teeth: False communication. Repressing these experiences

    • Lucky Bags: Bags are our emotional burdens. The lucky aspect is denoting experiences that brought about the emotional 'baggage'

    • Transparent film: What should be transparent is being covered up

    Interpreting the 'Crisis' part of the dream

    Whatever the emotional conflict that is represented by the ugly frog, the ugly experiences from the dreamer's early life and stored within the unconscious, has taken on a new urgency. The ugly 'frog' has shown itself in her 'masculine' identity in adult life. The experiences from early life are implanted within her psyche, the foundations {floor} from which she evolved. The ability {hand} to recognize and/or acknowledge these psychic disturbances is 'now' {‘that’s it now’}. Something from the unconscious expression that is 'ugly' is now being taken from the depths and brought to consciousness. The false teeth would be about a lack communication of these experiences between the unconscious and conscious. It may involve repressing the experiences. What they have done is unconsciously driven the waking life, influencing the ego and personality. Negative aspects that need to be recognized so there can be a reconciliation and healing.

    But I also see another aspect to the 'man' and the lucky bags. Bags are symbolic of burdens we carry and the reference here would apply to the 'temptations' that led to the emotional burdens. This may be what is actually being repressed, the actual man. He is covered with a 'transparent film'. What should be seen {transparent} is covered up. The luck bags is terminology one would find when talking with an abused child and the tools used to tempt the child to gain their confidence. This is where amplification becomes a big part of interpreting dreams. Going past the symbol itself and amplifying the possibilities of the terminology used in the dream.

    The Lysis/Conclusion

    The symbols that need to be amplified and examined are the man jumping energetically, landing on the floor, something out of the toad's mouth, false teeth, lucky bags and transparent film.

    • Hand in Toad's Mouth: The animus ability to put into conscious words the ugly experiences

    • Poisoned: The psyche will become forever poisoned as well as being 'poisoned' so not to acknowledge the actual male from early life

    Interpreting the 'Lysis' part of the dream

    I believe the above pretty much covers this last part. My sense is she is aware of early life experiences but has yet to acknowledge and/or confront actual people responsible for the 'ugly experiences'. There is also the poisoning of her animus, an inability to acknowledge aspects of the unconscious as well as other animus aspects of her psyche.

    Here is my original interpretation of this dream.

    Here is the whole posted dream, interpretation, response from dreamer and follow up posts.

    Note: The dreamer pretty much confirmed my interpretation although a full resolution was not established. Further comments by the dreamer is needed for that.

    Also, because of the length and a lack of time I have not edit the contents of either post so please accept my apologies for any mistakes. Feel free to comment.
