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.

    Dreaming of two black roses


    I have been reading a lot about spirituality during the past month. Also, I am into astrology and through my birth chart I have been feeling that my life span is short Aries 8H and Virgo rising. On the science of card I am a 9 of spades which represents sudden endings. My dream this morning was as I recall it. I with a camera in this garden of roses. There were multiple colours of roses. But I went to the only two black ones, I kept calling them 'karma' flowers. I was so captured by the beauty and peace those two roses that I tried to take a picture of just those two roses amidst the colourful spectrum of the other roses. And then I woke up. I read black roses could mean disappointment if not death, can anyone help me understand why I was feeling so peaceful and mesmerized?

    Re: Dreaming of two black roses

    Think of the dream as a flower arrangement of your whole self. Each flower/rose is an archetypal symbol of the soul with the petals forming 'psyche energies' that radiate outward. Here is a further breakdown of the symbols.

    The multi-colored roses would symbolize the various aspects of your psyche. Although the color black can carry negative connotations it is more often associated {in Jungian psyche} with the unconscious. Karma is the law of cause and effect, the law of the natural world, including if not especially the unconscious. Taking a picture is what you do when dreaming. It is picture show of your true self.

    My sense about your dream is it is focused on your inner search and was influenced by recent events {reading a lot about spirituality}. Jungian psyche is about 'looking inward', psychologically, and discovering the true self. The two black roses is your deep unconscious {the place you visit every night during dream time/REM sleep}. The unconscious world is governed by the laws of cause and effect, no matter the belief system. This inner search not only involves discovering your spiritual aspects {which are based as is everything else in the natural world} but also an examination of who you are and why you are that person. That requires either therapy sessions with a trained psychologist or a self psychology {Individuation Process}, examining your whole life and discovering on your own the roots/foundations to who you are and why you have evolved into that person. Your mystical side {astrology/tarot} is a positive but you must go beyond the symbolic references they provide and look at the biological/psychological aspects {natural science}. We all possess and live by certain beliefs but we are human animals that possess the same natural traits. Go past the belief system and look 'your psychology' {especially the early years of childhood and adolescence}. I live by one simple rule when it comes to self discovery. 'The path to wholeness is a psychological journey'.

    As for your interest in astrology and other 'mystical' paths {The Occult World of CG Jung}. Jung delved into these aspects during his last years and found they do have meaning. But like all aspects to the inner life it is the symbolic references that provide 'clues' to your meaning in life. That is ultimately what we all are looking for, meaning in life. There is no real meaning 'of life'. you must find your own meaning and purpose in life so you can live a life of wholeness. And that includes the spiritual aspects, not religious, but the spirit that resides within all of nature.
