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.

    Odd dream

    Hello, i haven't posted a dream in awhile, but this morning i fell back to sleep, and in that time i had the strangest dream. I remember it extremely vividly.
    The first part, i was outside. it was like in a grassy opening, but with trees on the side. My brother was with me. we for some reason were caring for a dog. then we found this car and in the back(sort of like the bed of a pick up truck) it was filled with dog supplies. I was so happy. Then we started taking large tree branches and started building fences with them around the area, Because we were(and this may sound strange) in a zombie apocalypse. I didn't see any, i just knew it.(I have had one other dream this week about zombies, but i actually saw them in that one, so, I'm not sure if that has something to do with this as well or not) Then i remember someone- a woman- coming. I did NOT like her. I wasn't afraid i just felt so much hate. Then the dream shifted. Now i was in my current home with my father and Brother. It was summer. It was hot, but we were inside looking out a window. The back of my house looked pretty much the same, just, with lots more green vegetation. We were staring into a tree, and there was a birds nest. Two birds came in, but very slowly. one was carrying a smaller dead bird. This freaked me out, but, I was Laughing at it. So were my dad and brother. I couldn't shake off this sense of fear. Like something bad was about to happen. I then watched as the bird fed the dead one to the chicks. The two birds watched. Then we walked outside, and i remember looking down at my arms. For some reason they were like- Tan/sun burnt down to my hands, but my hands were pale. Then i was looking at cut marks on my arm. I knew they were self inflicted(which was a surprise to me) but i just kept staring at them. My dad walked by and asked what they were. I told him they were bite marks(even though they looked nothing like bite marks). he said "Okay, cool" and walked away. I then frowned and looked down. I was standing on a wooden deck sorta thing. I remember sighing, and that's it. Then i woke up.
    This dream was full of surprises to me. It had me very confused. If you could please help me figure out the meaning, id be happy. thank you very much.

    Re: Odd dream

    Mel,
    My sense is the dream is addressing desires/needs associated with not having the required emotional nourishment as a child/teen. These experiences are something you share with your brother. Being able to have/find this nourishment would make you very happy {dog supplies-your physical and emotional requirements}.

    The part about taking the tree branches and building fences may suggest you have built emotional barriers against those things in life you dread {those emotional issues to do with the lack of proper nourishment}. The tree in one respect would represent personal growth and the lack of this nourishment has affected your personal growth. The sense of doom could be because you have not received this required nourishment. is there a particular woman in your life you do not like? What/how is the relationship with your mother? This could be at the core of the nourishment you seek/need and have not received. These are past experiences that have affected you and your direction in life.

    There are 'hot' emotional issues involved that are affecting who you are NOW. You are experiencing a better environment in the position you now live {more vegetation} but the emotional issue still remain {which doesn't greatly help no matter the environment you live in}. There are still the issues of personal growth {tree}. The bird's nest is your nest, your environment, one that seeks emotional security and protection. The two birds may be the parents. One bird is carrying a 'dead' part of yourself {the relationship with a parent}. You attempt to 'laugh' this away but it is an unconscious influence that motivates your personal life. {This may also point to an actual experiences involving your dad and bother where laughing at an issue}. unconsciously you have an embedded sense of fear due to a lack of the nourishment have described. You are feeding {unconsciously} upon the dead aspects from the lack of proper nourishment.

    The sun burnt arms with cuts represent the personal wounds you have experienced and the ability to function normally {personal growth}. Have you tried to or thought about harming yourself? Or is this eluding to the emotional harm from earlier life experiences? s your dad giving you the attention you need to do with these emotional issues?

    i get the sense there are parental issues involved which have affected your personal growth and your ability to grow. Again, what is the relationship with your mother like? is she the woman in your dream you do not like? Could the relationship with your mother be at the core of your emotional issues?

    Re: Odd dream

    Hey, i apologize for not responding immediately.Your interpretation seems very accurate. Me and my mother's relationship has never been good. As a child she abused me. Recently i tried to contact her, and to put it simply, she has not changed. My father's girlfriend and i have a horrible relationship as well. We have never gotten along. I despise her actually. I got that kind of a feeling with the woman in the dream, although i do not remember the face of the woman exactly. I have tried previously to harm myself, which is in the past of course. I have seen a therapist about it.(That's a shameful part of my life.)I think the biggest issue i have with my mother, and moving on, is that i just can't get over it. My father expects it not to bother me, but how can it not? Although me and him have a pretty good relationship. Anyways your look on the dream, was scary accurate. Thank you for taking the time to look over it. I appreciate it very much.

    Re: Odd dream

    Mel,
    I appreciate the response. One aspect I want to comment on {it seems my analysis was correct} is the 'shame' associated with seeing a therapist. There is nothing shameful about that. In fact it is a positive that you did see one {whether or not it helped}. Not doing so would be the shameful thing, not doing what is needed to help with good psychological health. If you were seriously ill physically you would see a doctor. Why not the same psychologically? WE ALL have deep emotional issues and most would be better off if they saw a psychologist or therapist to help resolve. If you don't resolve the emotional issues they will continue to be in your dreams. Dreams are self therapy, their intent is to inform the dreamer of emotional issues that need resolution. If they remain unresolved they will unconsciously have control over your conscious life. Your attempt to harm yourself is indicative of these unresolved issues. I recommend you continue {or begin again} to see a therapist to help you with your problems.
