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.

    I didn't get the meaning behind this dream?

    There is this male friend of mine, who is a very good friend but we are just friends. Nothing more than that.

    In my dream, I saw him at my home. He was leaving and suddenly he hugged me for quite long, in front of everyone, my family and there were some other people whom I didn't recognize. When he moved back, I saw him crying and I just kissed him on his cheek :/ then he went off the gate and before leaving he saw me once with a very satisfactory smile on his face.

    Can anyone help me by telling the actual meaning behind this dream? Is he sad about something which he isn't telling me?

    P.S: We are very frank with each other, we can talk on any topic plus we both respect each other a lot but we have never met and so we never touched each other so this dream was quite confusing and I didn't even share it with him.

    Re: I didn\\\'t get the meaning behind this dream?

    First let me comment on where you are located {country} and why I ask for that info. Cultural aspects have a lot to do with how a person thinks and feels and in dream analysis I must have some idea of those aspects to render a good interpretation of a dream. For instance. Although you have not provided any info about yourself I would gather you are one of the following {your being from Pakistan}. You are either a non-Muslim {including secularist}, a moderate thinking Muslim, a Christian, Hindu or Buddhist {or some other religion}. You could be a foreigner. What I assume you are not is a very conservative Muslim because if you were the chances of you posting your dream would be next to none. Such a thing would be forbidden by your religious faith. In other words you would more likely be like most everyone esle in the world with a moderate philosophy to life, more so than one that is closed off. This tells me a lot about who you are. Also cultural aspects are important. Not always but sometimes I will see something in a dream that would be interpreted differently because of cultural associations. Jut as with knowing whether the dreamer is male or female, these things have to do with deep inner associations, influences that are a part of early life or life changing experiences which define a person\'s character and personality {we all have masculine/feminine aspects-a woman in a man\'s dream usually addressed his feminine aspects, the same for a woman having a man in her dreams-see Anima/Animus}. I often can see particular personality traits of the dreamer in a dream. Knowing the cultural aspects helps identify other possibilities to any norms that are different from my world {Western culture}.

    Your Dream
    First off this dream is about your emotions and not about his {other than how you perceive him}. Home is a place within you. He, his friendship, is a place within you {He is in your home}. That would speak to the close relationship as a friend. A hug is a sign of affection as well as acceptance. This is an obvious thing between you and he {in front of whole family}. But there are other aspects to this \'hug\' you may not recognize {other people}. You may have pushed back certain feelings associated with him {perhaps his feelings toward you}, deeper feelings. Instead there is the kiss on his cheek {and not an intimate kiss}. You may want him to accept this relationship as it is with a satisfactory smile and not want anything more {at this time}.

    Is this how you really feel about the relationship? Dreams reflect how we really feel and not just the ego perceived feelings that are mostly controlled by emotional factors instead of objective thinking. Are you and objective type with particular goals in mind {marriage or deep relationship not one of them?}. This would suggest to be you are a \'moderate\' in your thinking and philosophy on life. Dreams reveal who you are and with the cultural associations I see something different from those deep cultural identification many Pakistanis have. But besides that I do believe the dream is reflecting your true feelings. There may be or have been deeper feelings with one or both of you {he saw you once} but overall you want the relationship to be as good friends.
