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: My Dream: Washing My Hair {Perfect Example of How A Dream Functions}

    The interpretation to this dream was primarily addressing recent experiences. But beyond that it is an overall view of my true desires and how to best to follow the 'bliss' factor. A couple of additional thoughts I have to the dream {not that I haven't already written a book about it}.

    One is the numbers in the dream. The number nine is my spiritual number because for me it does represent the feminine aspect of the psyche. The ancients associated the number Nine with the goddess or female aspects of divinity. The nine muses, the creative self that is divinity as full express of one's soul. I interpret this number in dreams as described above. Other than the number 4 it is the number that best fits with a 'individuated' condition. Here are some associations of the number nine.

    According to the research of Joseph Campbell, the number 9 is traditionally associated with the Goddess Mother Of The World. In India there are a total of 108 names associated with this Goddess

    To do with the human physical body:
    Nine month gestation period in human birth process

    Human mean normal respiration rate is 18 times per minute

    Human mean normal heartbeat is 72 times a minute

    Average number of heartbeats per hour is 4,320

    Average number of respirations per hour is 1,080

    Average number of respirations per 24 hour period is 25,920
    Note: when you add all the numbers together in the list they all equal the number NINE

    Other associations
    25,920 is also the length of a sidereal year (

    There are 360 degrees in a circle
    The circle in myth and dreams symbolizes completeness/wholeness

    Some cultures measure time in terms of very long cycles. In the Hindu tradition the present cycle of time consists of 432,000 years. This is called the "Kali Yuga". The great cycle in which the Kali Yuga falls consists of 4,320,000 years (Campbell, The Inner Reaches Of Outer Space, 1986)
    Add the number 432 and you get nine. Nine is the number of the universe.

    The Icelandic tradition tells of the great warrior hall in which there were 540 doors. Through each door there would come 800 divine warriors (ibid.). Okay, so 800 doesn't reduce to 9. But check it out: 800 warriors are coming through each of 540 doors. 800 x 540 = 432,000 warriors!

    A Greek version of the history of Babalonia says that between the time of the building of the first city, Kish, and the time of the Great Flood (as recounted in the Bible) there elapsed a total of 432,000 years

    The Number Six
    Six is an inverted nine which I see as representative in dreams a the whole physical self

    Revelation 13:18, "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and the number is Six hundred threescore and six (666)". However, according to Lawrence William Lyons (The Language Crystal), the word for "a man" in the original Greek is anthropos, also meaning "mankind". And no article "a" appears in the Greek text. Further, the word for "his" in "his number is" can be read as "its" implying no gender. So the Bible may say that 666 is the number of "humanity" or "mankind"

    Mankind as symbolic of the number six in dreams.

    The numbers 3 and 4
    Another aspect that these two numbers fit into my life is I have achieved all but one goal in my move to Florida. To say the least everything that needed to fall into place for me to be able to make my move has done so. The one last thing that needs to happen is for me to find a source of additional income to sustain my 'simple' lifestyle. My 'Survivor's benefits' from social security {this is a story in itself} is just short of what I need to be fully financial independent. But everything else I am doing what I need to do to fulfill those needs but with everything to do with the journey I know that too will come to fruition.

    As 3 of 4. I will have to think about this and post it later. I know it fits somewhere, my confidence in such applications being they always do. Numbers always have meaning in dreams, as does every other symbol, action and pattern in dreams.

    You continue to amaze me with your self-understanding and how clearly you see your goals and how to achieve them to follow your bliss.

    This is pure inspiration for me, I must say. I will re-read your dream and your deciphering and post my impressions later, if that's ok.

    I couldn't sleep last night for all the new "knowledge" that I've gleaned from listening to the Marion Woodman interview and from this forum as a whole. My spiritual library is certainly evolving and growing because I too have had dreams last night, actually early this morning, that are bringing in new energy. I will post them as soon as I finish this reply.

    till next
