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.

    A friend of mine dreamt that she opened her door and I was stood there holding a grey rabbit to my shoulder like a baby and I was crying saying it's gone and then I collapsed in her arms. She woke up crying and felt really concerned about me as I was inconsolable in her dream.

    Re: rabbit

    The good news is your friend's dream is about her emotional life and not yours {per say}. Your being a part of her dream would be in relationship to her emotional life {you represent some part of her}. What that might be is hidden in the dream images/language {the language of dreams is symbol and metaphor}. Not easy to read in such a short dream.
    The bad news? Well let's see if there is any in the dream images.

    A good chance the dream is revealing how she feels about herself, and may see that in you also. Rabbits can symbolize 'the innocent victim', a need to stop punishing oneself and, instead, accept and love yourself just as they are. You she feel this applies to you when in fact she identifies with it because it applies to her {someone needs to open up to something}. The grey color may represent something not completely clear {between black and white}. A shoulder to cry on like a baby. Crying is a release of emotions. Emotions that are gone may suggest something that is not realized. Waking up crying suggests very strong emotions. That would indicate there is a conflict that needs resolution.

    The best way to see how these things fit is to honestly look at each other and see how the symbols would apply. If you are very close friends then there is the possibility there is real concern about your emotional life. But again, her dreams are trying to help her resolve her inner conflicts. Get with her and talk over what I have suggested. Go to the dream dictionaries and see if any of the suggestions fit one or both of you. It is such a short dream it is hard to tell what patterns are trying to emerge. The issues are in her life and although you may be a concern to her the primary message is about her.

    Again, the symbols/actions to consider.
    *It is 'her door' that she opens. You stood in 'her' door.
    *A grey rabbit on your shoulder {you are shouldering something related to her}.
    *Like a baby-something innocent {as in rabbit/victim}
    *You are crying in her dream-possibly the way she feels about you that relates to her
    *You collapse in her arms. Extensions of herself {arms}.

    Let me know what you come up with.
