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.

    Round 2:Shooting Stars

    It started me out in a large city at night time. It was about four city blocks worth of land completely surrounded by large buildings and skyscrapers. In it were smaller buildings and shopping centers. Me and on old friend of mine were standing in front of one in particular. An old store that looked somewhat run down and withered. It had a large display window in front showing strange random items used for rituals like scrolls and manuscripts. We stepped inside and walked slowly toward the counter. Inside of the shop were old book cases filled with books of all kinds and colors. All of them from the look were hardback books. On a table to the right of the counter were stacks of old papers and research tools like magnifying glasses. We spoke to the clurk but I can't remember what was said nor what the clerk looked like. Only that he was old and wore dark clothing and we left. When we got back outside I looked into the sky. A large white shooting star shot across the sky and I felt a smile on my face. A low sounding "Oh" came from me, then a second and third star shot across and my reactions intensified. "Oooh ohh!" A short second passed when the fourth and final star shot across the sky. This star was far different than the other three. It was three times the size of the other three and shaped like a magnified snowflake. The star glowed a bright green color. "OHHH OH WOW LOOK AT THAT OH MAN!" I exclaimed and started hopping around in excitement until I awoke. What could this dream have meant?

    Re: Round 2:Shooting Stars

    Philip,
    The four blocks of large buildings and skyscrapers in the world you live in in which you are trying to find/achieve balance {4 in Jungian psyche is the number for wholeness}. The smaller buildings are the various aspects that make up your personality and life. There is one particular aspect you are wishing/needing to examine/realize/confront. An old aspect that has withered. the display window is a window of seeing within your unconscious. The scrolls/manuscripts are highlighted aspects of your life that involve certain rituals. Manuscripts are illuminated aspects within you. Going inside is an inner journey. Books are filled with knowledge. Hardback books are those aspects that are fixed, often rigid but also flexible. In your personal life you are researching these inner aspects, attempting to magnify certain/particular aspects {that are illuminating}. There are wisdom aspects you are wishing to communicate with. These unconscious aspects. To discover and be able to access these 'inner illuminating' knowledge will provide guidance for your outer self and will bring about 'Ah! Ha! moments. It will bring about wholeness {again the number 4} and total illumination. It will magnify your desire for spiritual perfection.

    Are you on a spiritual journey or/and have been studying/examining metaphysical documents recently? The dream points to desire to seek out knowledge beyond the normal information in everyday life. You want to be illuminated by this knowledge.

    You may also be examining your past and seeking out knowledge to do with your early life. If so it would fit with the other inner knowledge I mentioned. What are you reading/studying?

    Re: Round 2:Shooting Stars

    I haven't necessarily been studying or searching for information that isn't common knowledge but I DO take heavy interest in it like spiritualism, religion and as the georgia guidestones say I am "Seeking harmony with the infinite" What about the fourth shooting star, the one that glowed green any significance to that?

    Re: Round 2:Shooting Stars

    Philip,
    Spiritualism {which philosophy are you studying?} is a spiritual journey, and a metaphysical one. This comes through in your dream. Although it is hard and often impossible to say what spiritual path you are engaged I can {and seem to have accomplished} pointing to a spiritual search. The number 4 alone does not indicate such an experience but the scrolls and manuscripts are clues {they would represent ancient 'books' of spiritual knowledge}.

    As for the shooting star {don't know why I didn't include it when interpreting the images/symbols}. A shooting star can be a symbol for guidance as well as a sign of fulfillemnt and advancement. In your dream there are 4 stars which may represent levels of 'enlightenment' or progress in your spiritual search. The fourth star 'looked like a maginified snowflake' which could be representive of 'magnified purification' {as I pointed to in my original analysis}. The last of the dream would represent most current experiences and often point to where you are in your attempt to reconcile emotional energies your dreams are trying to communicate. The energies in your dream are positive while most dreams point to negative energies and negative emotional conflicts.But that is natural since the dream reflects the psyche life of the dreamer. The Oh! response is what I call a Ah! Ha! moment when you suddely realize something very valuable {and very often realize it was there all the time}.

    I dare say the other dream you posted has a lot to do with your search. In a quick view of that dream I see the number 4 and different levels of the house {the house is you}. That dream seems to be addressing personal aspects that are barriers to your search as well as obstacles in your emotional life. The troll would be reaching into the depths of your unconscious to bring out personal conflicts. If you take the definition of a troll you will get a good idea of its meaning:

    a mythical, cave-dwelling being depicted in folklore as either a giant or a dwarf, typically having a very ugly appearance.

    Caves in dreams ofetn repreent the unconscious and anything that dwells in those depths are aspects that need to be brought up and examined extensively. There could be mythological factors involved, one being any studies you have recently engaged in and another pointing to universal patterns of behavior that may be a part of your psychological makeup {myths are universal dreams, dreams are personal myths....Joseph Campbell}. I'll work on that dream and see what comes up from it.
