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.

    Need Help with Dream about Love & School!

    I apologize in advance if the text is too long, but I'll try to be as succinct as possible.
    Premise- This dream took place last night. The following points are true, both in the dream and real life
    I am in the middle of my IGCSE exams.
    I have a prom coming up and I have to find a date.
    My school is surrounded by sand(literally).

    I don't explicitly remember the exact details of the dream, but what was poignant, I do remember.

    It was the day of my 2nd Physics exam. I was sitting outside the exam hall with my friends. Very soon, the subject of prom came forward. I don't remember what was said, but all I remember was that the girl I plan on asking to prom in real life said, "I don't want to date you, but I would like to go to prom with you", which was quite blunt. From there on, I somehow ended up playing football in the school which we went for our athletics meet every year. My school never won once. Our match was cut short when the ball got kicked outside and some people came and took control of the pitch. After that I found myself back outside the exam hall, but something was different this time.

    There was a new girl sitting with us. Before I chance to say anything, our form teacher took us all in his SUV, through the desert like surroundings and into a sort of Star Wars like market(dreams are weird lol). It was there that this new girl approached me(also take note while I was in the market, my interactions with my other friends were almost non-existent). The first thing she said was something along the lines of, "I was being a little protective of you...". I later learned that her name was Lindsey and she was from Surrey, in England(I have no idea why). Once the market ride was over, ONLY the BOTH of us went to a building in my school, which was empty.

    In the market, it became clear that we liked each other. So in this building, I took here hand, and asked her something about love(I forgot exactly what). After she answered, we kissed-for quite a long time and with passion.

    Exactly after, we both went in the exam hall and got ready for our Physics exams. I had trouble finding my allocated seat because one other kid was playing around with my seat card. ALSO, for some reason, the inside of my exam hall looked like the inside of a church! The chairs in which we sat were pews!

    At first I thought that maybe Lindsey was an imaginative character from the world of my dream, but as we entered the exam hall, the teacher called all of our names out, including her's.

    I'm 16 and had never been in a relationship. I know this dream is all over the place, but I would appreciate it if someone could help me decipher it!

    Thanks!

    gw3gon,
    The dream is surely reflecting the upcoming exams and prom but the deeper aspects are likely the primary focus. The exam hall is pointing to the inner examination of your psyche. There are issues to do with the feminine, one being the actual relationship with girls. The other would be your inner feminine aspects.This dialog suggest there are aspects about your personality {to do with anima qualities} that you wish to build upon {date} and others you need only temporarily {go to the prom}. These would be emotional aspects, perhaps reflecting a need to improve yourself when it comes to girls but being less emotional when things to do not work out {with girls}. There are competing emotions {playing football} and thus far you have yet to win when it comes to the game of 'girls' {which at your age is a norm}.

    But this is something different. Is this your first prom? Having to find a date for the prom {an important first event in a teen's life} , someone who will accept you is something new to you. You probably are having concerns about finding a date. The examination is both an inner examination of your emotions as well as peer pressure and the examination you will have to endure associated with dating {finding a date}. At your age these are fairly new emotions and they are competing with other interests in your life {video games, guys stuff}. This is where the trouble finding your seat. Soon you will have to 'embrace' these emotions {about girls}. Much like church you are required to do so since it is a part of male regimentation {unless of course the person is gay}.

    As for the name Lindsey, there are likely personal associations to the name. You may have heard it earlier and it stuck in your mind. The teacher in your dream would be a teaching part within you {experiencing the relationship with girls and the emotions that go with it}. The dream is addressing the issues of girls as well as the emotional issues that come about because of relationships with them {our emotional aspects are considered as feminine aspects}.

    Thank you for the prompt reply.
    This is my first prom and for all these years, I have put aside girls and dating on a whole, away from my list of priorities. You're probably right about the feminine side of me trying to show. All these years I've thought of myself foolishly as a tough guy who doesn't care about girls while suppressing the hidden feelings I have about them. Do you think that has a role in my dream?

    gw3gon,
    The 'tough guy' image fits perfectly. Not only with the list of priorites {girls low on the list} but also as an aspect of your psyche. Nature intended us to have a balanced psyche, being able to be strong yet not being afraid to show emotions. If your psyche is overloaded more toward the masculine then there is a conflict with the feminine. This fits with the dream in both aspects {dreams always have at least two meanings/applications}. Nature is calling {interest in girls} and that has led you to reaccess teh conflict between masculine/feminine on the conscious life. And because nature insists on a balanced psyche the out of balance masculine attitude of the tough guy is a focus of your dream also. Bringing balance to the psyche on a conscious level as well as an unconscious one is what dreams are about. It is the unconscious frame of mind that usually leds to teh conscious attitude. Look to balance both but do not completely abandon your list of priorities. That is an important list that will be valuable in your future {most people live spontaneously, without priorities}.
