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.

    Long vivid dream

    I once again had a very vivid dream, that i'd like to understand better. I recently posted a dream, so i hope im not being a pest by posting another.
    From what i can remember the dream began at my aunt and uncles house(which they no longer live at. in fact we're currently preparing to move there). The place was... slightly messier then it would have been. The floor was covered in clothes. They were watching me for my dad. I remember i was sitting in a tight corner. I remember getting up and walking out to the living room. My uncle was there sitting on a chair. My aunt was cleaning up the area i had been at, and i remember feeling suddenly worried, like i was hiding something in the corner. i stared at her, hoping she wouldn't find it. Then she walked away and i ran over, and grabbed it. Turned out that 'it' was my clothing, including a shirt and underwear(sorry that's a little weird..). anyways, then i was outside. we were outback of my aunt and uncles house. This part is a little blurry, but i can remember it was for some sort of.. celebration? there were a lot of people, that i did not know. i felt very uncomfortable, and out of place. It was night time. I remember i did something, and suddenly everyone was angry with me. I was trying to tell them that it wasn't my fault, but i seriously had no idea what i did. then we were in front of the house. and i was standing next to this boy. I know that i 'loved' him. It was weird. suddenly we saw a shooting star, and it was beautiful at first, but then, it came really close to us, and it crashed on the other side of the house. I ran after it to see what it was, and so did the boy. it was like.. a comet? it was made of like stone. then my dad came over to look at it. he seemed very interested. I remember it turning into daylight,and i guess another rock came down, and had hit the boy in the face. he was bleeding, and i remember rubbing his head slightly, and telling him it would be okay. I also had a piece of the 'comet' in my hand, and i was feeling it. it had a rather rough texture to it. Then(and this is the really strange) my dad cracked the 'comet' open(in half) and there were wires and what not inside of it. i remember my dad getting a phone call and talking to someone about it then the dream ended.
    This is probably one of the weirdest dreams I've had in awhile. So, once again i hope im not being a pest by posting another. thank you.

    Re: Long vivid dream

    Mel,
    After taking a look back your other posted dreams the patterns does seem to be about childhood issues. You have confirmed this {most recently about mother abuse in your response in your last posted dream}. This dream does seem to be playing on the same themes. The question is, does the images of your aunt and uncles represent 'related emotional issues' to do with experiences with family {particularly your parents} or is the dream pointing to actual emotional experiences to do with them {aunt and uncle}. You can answer that by looking at the relationship with them and see if there is any emotional issues involved {mental or physical abuse}. This is the one thing that is hard to pinpoint as it has to do with their inclusion i the dream. Because they do live next door to you, and you are moving into their house, that may have stimulated past memories to do with them. It could point to actual experiences. But an image of an aunt and/or uncle could symbolize 'related' issues to do with something else and not have anything to do with them personally.

    Other than the question about your aunt and uncle the dream seems to be focused on inner emotional 'trauma' that has affected your personality and life. Clothing in a dream usually represents ego attitudes you possess {anything to do with ego personality is a result of early life experiences/influences as well as genetics}. Your basic foundations {floor} is covered with emotional attitudes due to early life experiences. Something is 'messy' about the aunt/uncle images {answering the question about the actual relationship with them will define what their images mean in the dream}. You are in an 'emotional' tight corner and are feeling the pressures from these experiences. There is something uncomfortable, out of place to do with their images. Something that affects your persona {face}. In your dream the other boy you love is your true self, the self that should have been if only you had good parents and a normal childhood.

    The ending to the dream does seem to be focused on your father and that relationship. It may be pointing to issues you told him about but he never followed through on doing anything. The shooting star would be a symbol for good fortune but because of your abnormal childhood that came crashing down. It is now a 'concrete' formation {comet/rock} that has affected your inner circuitry {wires and what not inside}. Your childhood experiences has been disrupted by emotional issues and that will go with you, and affect who you are and become, for the rest of your life. Unless you do something about it. And that would require therapy.

    Re: Long vivid dream

    The relationship between my aunt an uncle is rather neutral. I was around them a lot when i was like 3-4 but as i got older i never really stayed around them. My aunt has caused us trouble with my mother though. besides that, there's not much.
    Thank you for this interpretation. It makes a lot of sense to me. I'll definitely be looking into therapy again, and based on my experiences with this forum, and the dreams, hopefully one that uses dreams and such. Thank you very much. I appreciate your help.

    Re: Long vivid dream

    Mel,
    Thanks for the response. It does provide further clues to the dream images. In particular those of your aunt and uncle {which I felt were not so important as literal experiences}. The language about them in the dream 'My uncle was there sitting on a chair. My aunt was cleaning up the area i had been at, and i remember feeling suddenly worried, like i was hiding something in the corner' points to a passive relationship with your uncle {sitting on a chair} but something more involved with your aunt. That would likely be related to your mother and her attitude.

    The one thing you said that is significant is a willingness to return to therapy. As I stated previously we all have issues that could use some therapy to help understand them and resolve them. Let unattended they only grow stronger and will in some way have an influence on you personality wise as well as who you become as an adult. If I had known much earlier in life what I know now about the influence of my childhood relationship with my father {I should say non-relationship} and the affect it had on my early adult life I would have lived an entirely different life. That is how strong early life experiences/influences have on all of us. Unconsciously we are controlled by those events. If both parents smoke, drink or are abusive it is likely the children will possess the same traits. It isn't rocket science, it is common sense. A child picks up on such things and it is embedded in the psyche. So please do follow up on the therapy so you will be able to live an early adulthood free of unconscious influences. I was 42 when i began to free myself from the energies of childhood {that is when I first discovered Joseph Campbell and Jungian psyche}. Oh what could have been if only I had known earlier.
