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: Mystic cave dream

    Gian,
    Bare with me on my interpretation. There are aspects of archetypal possibilities and I want to be sure not to mis-read them.
    The beginning of the dream suggests there are deep unconscious revelations, something that is either shared with your sister or pertains to traits or attitudes she possesses. The dream images border on an archetypal scale but at your age that is unusual. But the language may suggest there are revelations/realizations of the universal mind. Let's go deeper into the 'cave'.

    In the cave/unconscious you discover crystals which can be symbolic of 'insights' and the spiritual leaders may suggest on a metaphysical realm {spiritual, possibly creative}. The cave paintings may represent intuitive insights and the pictures of Egyptian gods, Indian Shamans and priests pointing to the archetypal possibilities I spoke of. The descriptive language of these 'Wisdom' icons seem points to the masculine {gods, shamans and priests}. The masculine aspects would represent aspects to do with you. Watching the lake could be new realizations that will be 'established' if you are able to 'manifest' or 'make happen' these insightful possibilities.

    Two observations about Froot loops. One is they are children's cereal which may point to 'infantile nourishment' and the second is they are round or circles which would be the symbol for wholeness. The colors could be pointing the unconscious {blue} and the conscious self {orange}. There is something within your unconscious that needs to be made conscious {manifest/make happen}. To do this would help bring about wholeness in your life. You need to pull these 'visions' out of the unconscious {perhaps kneeling to your higher being, overcoming the ego barriers} and make them conscious.

    Summary Thus Far
    There are unconscious aspects that need to be brought up to conscious understanding. This is typical for dreams, using symbolic language to describe unconscious events in the dreamers life. There are two things that are relative to the unconscious contents. The first is the inclusion of your sister. the second are the Egyptian gods, Indian shamans and priests. The sister image suggests personal experiences and the god/shamans/priest 'may' suggest collective experiences or revelations. The later are often archetypal {products from the deeper universal mind}. This is not usual for someone your age unless there are greater forces at work and you possess an ability {intuition} far beyond someone your age. If this true then the dream would point to major transition in your life. But we have yet to establish this as fact.
    Continuing

    You move to a different area of the unconscious realization. The quartz crystal may suggest there are aspects that are within the subconscious that is ready to be made clear or made conscious. To are at that 'point', the quartz being just beneath the 'crust' of realizing, quartz being a mineral just beneath the crust of the earth {the universal mind would know this as being true}. This knowledge is at the 'shore' of understanding/realization. To bring this knowledge to consciousness would be a most beautiful thing.
    Your experience making crystal jewelry in real life influences your dream. To what extent we must learn.

    The crystals would be unconscious knowledge {seeing and reading the crystals} and the slices of rock being layers of the soul. Jung's observations about stones
    { “The stone symbolized something permanent that can never be lost or dissolved, something eternal that some have compared to the mystical experience of God within one’s own soul.

    There were five stones. I think of the number five as symbolic for transition, moving from one stage {having reached four/completion you move on to the next stage}. The geometric patterns could represent basic elementary patterns but within the current age of technology {your age at 28 in the 21st century}. Translated the language would be, 'Within your deep unconscious there are visions of spiritual leadership within yourself'. These are powerful forces and just beneath the layer of consciousness. They are ready to be made conscious.

    We are back to Hannah. Hannah is skeptical which probably points to a true fact about her {determine what that skepticism is and you may untangle a lot about the dream}. You have brought up from the unconscious, or you are ready to bring up, a realization that will lead to wholeness in your life {circular froot loops}. It may involve greater possibilities in your life beyond the norm. There are powerful forces at work in this endeavor to recognize your greater potential.

    Summary
    All indications from the dream point to great insights to your life and its potential. Whether it is the unlocking of personal experiences that have 'manifest' themselves in your deep unconscious {negative experiences in your life} or if is something on a higher scale, something divine and spiritual, only you can answer. My sense is it would involve a major transition in your life and that usually occurs either all of a sudden out of the blue {fate} or, more likely, a product of seeking greater possibilities on a conscious level. Let me know your thoughts and impressions and if possible where you are in your life. Knowing so little about you {age and gender} I can only see within the certain perimeters of your being. If "I had you on a couch' it would be much easier to know what is taking place in your conscious life and more importantly your unconscious.

    Re: Mystic cave dream

    Hi Jerry,
    Wow. I don't even know where to start. I have been on a spiritual journey for a long time now... Asking the universe for some sort of message about my purpose here. Over the past few years I have made some major changes in my lifestyle with the goal of living a long life in order to maximize my time here to help the world. I'm am deeply intuitive and spiritual, I spend a lot of my free time contemplating and reading spiritually-related content. The few weeks surrounding the night of this dream, I was not in my spiritual mindset. I was distracted with my new job, new living situation, and other matters. It seems to me like the universe was trying to shake me awake again, and make this dream stand out from the others so I would be sure to listen.
    I've felt like I have been on the edge of something, some kind of realization or revelation, maybe just for myself or perhaps for humanity. But it's definitely there... If that makes sense. I'm always searching and listening and growing towards it.

    I would love to dig deeper into all of this with you, via email or over the phone, or even face to face. If that's a possibility, please let me know. I am currently working as a flight attendant, and I'm planning to visit a friend in Miami soon, I don't know how far you are from Miami but I'm sure I could arrange a way to meet you.

    Re: Mystic cave dream

    Gian,
    Distractions from the spiritual path are a constant. I have in the past used the term 'social dragon' as an application to having to serve society when the desire wishes to serve the soul. For you there is a long road to travel in battling the 'dragons' of social duty. Joseph Campbell reminds us this is the major challenge in life. Do you serve the dragon or the soul? This applies to his 'follow your bliss' instructions, discovering and following that thing in life you love doing most. From experience I know first hand the obstacles that come up in that endeavor. You have to make a living and if your job is not what you love doing most the plan needs to be to work toward those ends, one step at a time. There will always be obstacles, that is how the hero journey plays out, that's life {the first Buddhist saying is 'life is all sorrowful'}. But as long as you live a spiritual life and consciously work toward your bliss, you will come to bliss. There is a mechanism in nature, what Campbell called the helping hands of fate {angles for some people} that will guide you and help you when there seems to be unmovable barriers. I know this to be true, I have lived it and having taken early retirement last October I am fully engaged in living my bliss. And all along the way to getting here, there was an abundance of helping hands. I had to do the leg work {God provides the tools, the work to be done is yours} and with discipline a road may to go by {Campbell's Momonmyth and Jung's Individuation Process} I am in that place I have so longed to be in. If I can do it so can you. The great thing for you is you have discovered early in life there is an alternative path to wholeness. i was 42 before I began my journey inward.
