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.

    Guinea pig Dream

    Well, i had a very odd dream again, very different from the others i have been having lately. It started as i was on a bus... sort of like i was on a feild trip. there were other kids there. we made a stop, and i guess we were on some sort of a farm. We grabbed animals, and each student was given one. Mostly they were rabbits, but i got a Guinea pig. I was very afraid he would bite me, so i kept trying to hold his teeth away from me. somewhere along the line he tried biting me, but my jacket blocked his teeth from sinking in. Next stop we made, was to kill the animals. I was so disgusted by this thought, that i held the Guinea pig close, and when the woman tried to grab him, i sort of like, flinched, and said "no". she let it go, and i kept him. i was supposed to talk to someone about this though, and soon enough i was at a desk, talking to a.... teacher? but it was still at the farm sort of place. I remember thinking how heavy the guinea pig was, so i asked to set him down. the teacher set out a stack of papers for me to set him on, and i tried, but the papers kept moving around, so i was unable to set it down. I just picked him up in my arms, and said something like "Its okay, you're my burden to carry now" and the guinea pig sort of smiled...? he seems happy, and he snuggled up against me, like he was accepting me. I smiled as well, as if i was happy. We tried walking back to the bus, but soon enough something happened, like.. creatures..? of some sort blocked the way.
    The dream shifted several times, but this one was the dream that stuck out in my head the most. I would be happy if you could give me an idea as to what it means. Thank you.

    Mel,
    My sense of the dream is it is attempting to communicate your desire to be a part of the crowd you have to associate with but have had difficulties in doing so. Are you the shy type person? A part of the reason for this, other than possible personality traits, is you are turned off by the 'normal' crowd attitude. You are more prone to get involved in things that help with personal growth than the outer worldly things most kids you are are involved with.

    There may have been a recent experience that amplified this. It was a learning experience and from it you have to learned to accept the 'crowd's attitude and have embraced the challenges that go with it. It is a burden to have to 'play' the game because of all the weirdness {creatures} that you come across and get in your way of wanting to fit in yet still be your true self.

    Does this fit with how you feel and who you are?

    I Have social anxiety, and because of that i am extremely shy. Recently, i was sort of, forced into social situations that, at first rather sucked, but afterwards, i realized that it wasn't so bad. As for that, what you're saying makes a lot of sense. Thank you!

    mel,
    The social anxiety issue does come through in your dream. The good thing is you analyzed the situation and saw it was not as bad as you thought, or felt. Being able to be objective in these matters is most important. Instead of seeing things strictly in a tinted view {ego} you are able to look at things and determine the truth. It wasn't as bad as you though probably applies to many situations in life. This is true for everyone.
