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.

    Back in Kindergarten

    I had a dream where I was back in kindergarten as an adult. All the other students were children. In the dream this particular state required everyone to complete kindergarten and I had not (in the dream). Hence, I decided to volunteer and complete the program even though I have plenty of college education. The teacher was accepting and I wasn't going to ruin the experience for the children. At lunch I asked if I could get something to eat and went to cafeteria for a more adult meal. Part of me wanted to tell the person in the cafeteria about my advanced education, not sure if out of ego, or to help explain away any confusion or both. I then woke up. Thanks for any thoughts

    Re: Back in Kindergarten

    Bob,
    Two possibilities I see in the dream and both could apply but would be related {all dreams have more than one message}.

    Kindergarten is learning something new for the first time. What you are learning or need to learn is something new about yourself {emotionally}. It could very well be something from childhood {all the other students-aspects about yourself- were children}. There is likely something about childhood experiences/influences that you need to complete {learn and understand}. It would be about childhood nourishment that has affected your adult life {foundations from childhood that formed your ego/psyche as an adult}. Despite your advanced education {something that is real?} there are elementary aspects from childhood that remain unresolved {thus causing emotional conflicts}.

    The second possibility
    There is something new in your adult life that you need to learn more about so you can complete some aspect to do with your life as an adult. It may be job related, relationships, etc. You are accepting of this need but lack the proper information to be well informed on the topic. There is some confusion on your part and it has to do with ego related issues {see first possibility}. There is a need for expression {part of me wanted to tell the person about advanced education}.

    Look at both and determine which fits best. Normally a dream will address two issues with the same images but one of the issues will be the prime topic of the dream.
