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.

    parking lot

    I was parked in a mall parking lot near the Movie Theater end. An older male I know exited the Movie Theater into the parking lot. My car headlights were shining on him. I didn't want him to see me as he was walking by.

    Re: parking lot

    Cindy,
    Short dreams are difficult to analyze since there is so little dream images to analyze {dreams use a language of symbol and metaphor and the images/actions provide clues to emotional issues you have in life}. Here is a possibility to what the dream may be trying to communicate.

    A mall parking lot may suggest you are in a position where you need to exploring an emotional issue{s} that is currently in conflict in your life. The movie theater may suggest a conscious effort is needed t better understand why this is needed and/or why it is an issue {dreams are \'movies\' about your emotional life}. The older male would be either a real person in your life or/and a wise masculine aspect that needs to be or understood {all dreams have at least two interpretations/applications to do with your emotional self}. The car lights {the car is you} are a focusing {shining} on this masculine aspect. Not wanting him to see you may suggest you do not want to recognize this emotional aspect. Walking by may also point to an\'avoidance\' of this issue.

    The two possibilities are
    1} There is an issue to do with an actual older male that has caused a conflict of your emotions. You are currently focused on this issue and there may be aspects you wish to avoid {emotional issues}
    2} There is another issue that requires a wiser masculine effort that needs to be better understood. This could point to personality traits where a utilization of these qualities are required. You may lack these masculine qualities which, if true, may lead you to make unwise decisions. You would be unconsciously avoiding aspects in your life because of early life experiences/influences {possibly to do with the older male/father}. You are motivated by unconscious forces because you do not possess these necessary qualities. One thing that would cause such a condition would be not having a good father relationship early in life. without this you would not have learned these \'skills\'.

    Does either or both fit with your life. If could be both since dreams do have the two applications I mentioned. If there is not an issue with an older man {other than the possibility of the continuing relationship with your father-he could be the older man} then look at the second possibility. The masculine qualities within your psyche would be symbolic of the older man. But that would likely point to under developed qualities which could be due to the relationship with your father or another man from your early life {making that man an older person from your past}.

    A lot of possibilities to what the dream is trying to communicate. If you have another dream that you remember post it and perhaps that will provide more insights to this older masculine aspect in your life.

    In the meantime I suggest you read my page A Simple Guide to Dreams to get a better understanding of how dreams function {using Jungian concepts based on the science of dreams}.
