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.

    Re: Pierced my baby's foot

    Justin,
    About Mother's Signature. Are you referring to the website of Dr. Bernard W. Bail? In the first paragraph there is this, "Nature by definition passes on the patterns of the mother into the child from the very moment of conception". That sounds more like the pattern of the archetypal mother, innate patterns we all are born with. Anthony Stevens touches on this in his book Jung: A Very Short Introduction.

    But those are innate traits. The experiences in the womb would be separate issues. Inherent patterns from the mother while in the womb and the innate mother archetype would be different. The innate would be a collective unconscious aspect while the inherent experience in the womb would be personal. The child develops through the mother's body, shares what you takes in physically and psychologically. Psychological stress could be passed on to the child in the womb. Those experiences would then be re-inforced after birth where there is a waking experience by the child of the interaction between your mother and her mother. The end of life experience there could lay the foundations for your fears of death.

    I am currently listening to Marion Woodman's audio CD 'The Crown of Age. She tackles this fear of death issue in this program. You may want to purchase it, not only for her insights on the fear of dying but also so many other aspects of the psyche. Here is a statement from the CD that would likely apply to your life:

    She questions, for instance, for those of us who have not had enriching maternal care in our early lives: "Without a positive mother, how can we recognize ourselves?"

    W have two issues to do with your mother. The issue of being afraid of death as well as a lack of a positive mother.
    {In my early life there was the lack of a positive father which manifested into destruction actions when I was in my 20s}.

    "So on my inner levels I don't trust my intuitive feminine resources".
    The lack of the positive mother could answer that issue. Especially if you are naturally intuitive. Not to be able to utilize a 'higher' quality could be a barrier to relationships with the feminine/women. Then there is the possible double 'whammy' if your father passed along his issue with the same trait. If there is an imbalance between the psyche father/mother aspects, and there does seem to be that in your case, an over reliance on the masculine as a survival tool would seem natural. The archaic masculine takes control which could lead to a life out of control due to an imbalance of the yin and yang.

    You have done a lot already to try and resolve these inner issues. And there is more to be done. What I can tell you from personal experience is it took me 20 years to resolve my issues of not having a 'positive' father. But through self analyzation through Jung's Individuation Process I was able to reconcile that lack of a positive father and become whole. It was not until a few years ago I finally resolved the issue to the point it no longer controlled me. You have already identified a lot of what is at the core of your inner conflicts. Now you must continue to examine the possibilities to reconciling them. Personal counseling with a trained professional is one path. But you can do it alone if you give enough time and resources to it. I promote Jung's method because it worked for me. I especially gave a lot of attention to Marion Woodman since she has worked all her life on additions and issues you and I have had in our lives. Identifying the issues is the first major step. Working to reconcile them is the continuing path of a life time. But I believe if you do work to gain wholeness as you are doing there will be a resolution. A tendency to 'hound' oneself can complicate matters but in time you will resolve that issue also. Woodman states in the mentioned CD that it is often a matter of time, letting yourself naturally evolve to find the answers. It is a part of the adventure. Unfortunately it hurts a lot.

    “It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.”
    ― Joseph Campbell

    Re: Pierced my baby's foot

    hi Jerry,
    my apologies for such a delayed response - I've been digesting (and hard to find time to settle to do this kind of work).

    I heeded your link to Marion Woodman, and as I was browsing there saw a title by Clarisa Pinkola Estes - Warming the Stone Child. The title really caught my eye; I audio downloaded it and it 'spoke volumes'.
    Keypoints were the 'looking for love' was actually looking for guidance (lack of parental guidance / appropriate parental guidance).
    That led me to more of here work - Mother Night (Learning to See in the Dark) - and I am into that.

    I have aslo glimpsed into Marion Woodman's work, The Crown of Age; and will be back to her as soon as I can.

    This has plunged me back into Jungian thought - truth is it does speak to me and I can understand it. These are great 'thinkers' and explainers of the psyche.

    This morning C P Estes (above) mentioned mirror neurones - then I re-read your posts above (and my reference to the Mothers Signature). This could well explain how I (we) have picked up the neural patterning of my mother (her grief and sadness; feelings so often with me).

    Understanding is one thing; setting new pathways is another.

    all the best, Justin

    Re: Pierced my baby's foot

    Justin,
    I will provide a response to your post and your other posted dreams later today or in the morning. there was an electric power failure this morning which limits my time to reply to posts.

    I am glad my link led to something constructive. I am not that familiar with Estes' book but the title alone speaks volumes {Warming the Stone Child}. Estes must come from the same background as does Woodman gauging by the title. I find that female authors, especially Jungian, are more apt to offer better advise than males. But I am a bit prejudice toward the feminine psyche, it being the powering aspect of my psyche that allows me to see into dreams as well as vital aspects of my own personal journey. Having grown up living with my mother and 3 sisters it could be natural I guess that the feminine is so strong within me. Add to that Jung's focus on the power of the innate feminine psyche, the pattern becomes clear.
