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.

    holidays solicitation and bunny costume

    Good Morning,
    I am sharing this dream although I don't feel it was finished; I woke midway but have not been able to shake this dream:My husband, me, and our children were living in a busy apartment building. My stepfather called one evening (it was spring) to discuss Thanksgiving now due to the "debacle last year" (sidenote: my sister and I had a fallig out this past christmas and have yet to truly discuss). There were lots of people going in and out of the builidng; it was busy. I told him I couldn't think about that right now and hung up. My husband then called me to say he was at a local bar (my husband is not a drinker)but needed help. He had been "joking with some ladies" and, actually, he could now get arrested for solicitation and didn't know what to do. I was trying to ask him questions but couldn't hear or understand what he was saying. I told him to come home and hung up. The ladies from the bar then showed up (three very different looking blondes - I can see their faces clearly but dont know them) looking for my husband. My stepfather called again upset and wanting to talk about thanksgiving. I remember telling him it was easter/spring, why do we need to discuss this now. I hung up. My husband then showed up absolutely drunk and I yelled at him to go up the back way to our place. (again, my husband doesnt drink)I remember thinking, how on earth did he get home being so drunk. I then remember going to look at easter baskets and seeing some bunny costumes, thought wouldn't it be great if we dressed up as bunnies for our kids for easter (they are young).

    at that point, I woke up and am still wondering what was going on.

    Re: holidays solicitation and bunny costume

    Hippity hoppity there needs to be more thanks giving to particular emotional issues in your life {instead of procrastinating}. This may be one reason for the dream. But there are likely associated issues as well. Let's look at the possibilities.

    The busy apartment building would be your life in general {you are the building and are very busy with your domestic life}. One issue is the emotional conflict to do with last Thanksgiving. It is unresolved and as long as it remains as such it will 'nag' you until you do take steps to address the issue. Because are so many things going on in your life {lots of people going in and out of the building; it was busy} this issue has been put on the back burner when it probably be address now rather than later. It is an issue not only because of the debacle but may suggest there are other things involved that are taking an emotional toll {in what way is your stepfather involved, in the debacle as well as your life?}. You have 'hung up' without resolving these issues.

    The call from your husband. What issues are there in that relationship that 'need help'? Something seems to need a release from buildup stress {drinking at a bar}. Joking is not taking something seriously and the solicitation {asking for help} may involve intimacy {ladies}. Are their issues on his part where does not 'know what to do?' {or not interested in doing hat needs to be done?}. Perhaps he expects a little more 'glamour' and a little less seriousness on your part. You know what that 'looks like' {is about} but you don't know that type of person within yourself. He needs to come 'home' to your realities and not his fantasies.

    Then the other emotional issues come into play. You are not wanting to deal with that now, you again put it off.You want to start a new attitude without having to deal with the old {spring time}.

    Your husband being drunk may suggest you feel he is losing a grip on reality {in your relationship}. Being serious seems to be a pattern in the dream. How can he not be serious about certain aspects to the relationship? Going to the Easter baskets may represent the worst of the 'material' problems would be over if you would put on a 'facade' to something you are not {Bunnies as in Playboy?}. Much like it was when you were younger and your life was a lot less stressful and busy as it is now.

    Play with the husband part. There seems to be issues there but from just one dream {and not knowing anymore about you and the relationship difficult to sort out}. There may be patterns involved that has to do with 'putting things off'. The intertwining of the stepfather calling and the drunk husband normally would suggest a relationship between the two. Is it procrastination or your busy life or something else that binds the two together?
