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.

    Blissful, Intimate Dream

    Spam filters causing problems. I am going to edit each paragraph in to make sure that nothing gets cut out. I should be done rather quickly and it will all be within this post.

    A quick forward: this dream never becomes explicit, even if it seems it will veer in that direction imminently. I wasn't sure if that was an issue here so I thought I would offer that reassurance before you delved into this dream.

    I recall that I was in a house within my dream; more specifically, I was downstairs in a foyer area of a home located in the woods in the countryside. I recall that the walls were of white plaster with wooden trim of a dark, chocolate brown color. There was no artificial light in the house that was turned on, but windows allowed daylight through to light the area. The character of the light that came through the windows seemed to suggest that it was an overcast day outside of the house. This house seemed to be at least a few decades old, not from wear or from disrepair, but instead from the way it was styled and structured. This style of white plaster with dark wooden trim seems to be a running theme and I can recall many dreams in buildings such as that over a long period of time.

    I recall that there were two others with me, both of whom were women. One woman was about 5'8" in height and had fair skin. Her hair was in a somewhat short and wavy platinum blonde style that was tied back loosely. This woman seemed to be in her mid-twenties. I recall that she was thin, though not waif-like, and seemed to possess at least some substance to her build. The only other physical feature of her that I recall is that she had a somewhat arched bridge on her nose. I remember that she wore a white tank top or maybe a white tee-shirt; she also wore slacks or pants of some kind but I do not remember in what style, fabric, or color. The other woman I have no recollection of in terms of her appearance save for the fact that she seemed to be significantly older, at least in her fifties if not sixties. I recall that the older woman was speaking, but I do not remember what she spoke of.

    The sense I had in this dream was that the younger woman and I had been married for exactly one week. I recall that even though we had been married for a week we had neither consummated the marriage, nor had we gone on any sort of honeymoon. The older woman was apparently the blonde woman's mother. My wife in the dream and I seemed anxious for her mother to leave as she spoke. Eventually the mother stated that she would be going upstairs to take a shower and she left our presence.

    The blonde woman and I quickly moved through the house to a bedroom, presumably because her mother wouldn't bother us now. I remember a feeling of unbelievable anticipation as she led me with my hand holding hers as we went. The woman too seemed absolutely anticipatory of us being alone with each other. I recall that we had gone up a staircase and through a dim hallway before we turned to the left. I saw one other room inside of which was a window that allowed light in. I have a brief recollection of seeing two other people in that room, a man and a woman. The woman was about six feet tall, wore a dark colored sleeveless top, grey-brown pants of some kind like cargo pants, had fair skin, and had very short brown hair almost like a crew cut. I recall no details about the man save that I recall that he was solidly built. The woman faced the man in the room and away from the door, though I recall that she briefly looked back at me over her left shoulder as I walked through the hallway. Other details are lost on me besides the look of the hallway being consistent with the look of the foyer I was in earlier.

    We entered a bedroom which seemed to possess the same character as the rest of the house. The door was closed and locked and we were now alone with each other. We proceeded to disrobe. As we did so I recall that she gave me a fruit that had come from a bowl on a wooden dresser in this room. The fruit had a rind like that of an orange, but the interior of the fruit was a deep orange red and was almost smushy, like it was overripe. I bit into the fruit and my mouth was flooded with a wonderfully sweet taste somewhat like that of a grapefruit. I remember telling the woman that I was being utterly seduced by her in her garden of earthly delights, a line that strikes me as quite cheesy in waking life!

    The two of us were wholly consumed by a raw passion for each other. The tone of the dream and the character of the feeling that I remember wasn't that of an animalistic lust. Instead, we were utterly subsumed in the chemistry of our relationship, a chemistry of profound love and extreme physical and emotional attraction to each other. We were both absolutely giddy just from being together and were so excited for what was going to occur.

    The last thing I remember about the dream is that we lept into the bed and embraced each other tightly, each of us pressing our body against the other. I remember a feeling of pure relaxation, comfort, and bliss during that embrace. I felt completely calm and at peace, though my heart pounded at what seemed to be a rapid pace. There was almost a lightness in my chest during this time. The overall feeling I recall was one of absolute love-induced intoxication.

    I woke up at this point naturally instead of from an alarm. It was a short time before I normally would have woken up anyway. I laid in bed pondering the dream and just remember feeling extraordinarily positive energy after having had it.

    The only other thing I will note here is that the plaster rooms with dark wooden trim is a pretty consistent look of interior areas in my dream. Somewhat dim illumination from daylight through windows rather than from artificial sources in this environment is also a very consistent feature. I have dreams in an interior place like this very frequently, at least a few times each month.

    Anonymous,
    Because this is a long dream I will need additional time to analyze it. I should have an interpretation Wednesday morning.

    My analysis of the dream {pretty much cursory} came up with the following {below comments}. I have broken down each paragraph and provided an overall sense of what each is communicating. I see a pattern evolving, one I think you will recognize with the following explanation.

    The first and foremost is a realization and acceptance of your true self. Bringing the inner self in harmony with the outer self. I see a conscious effort for personal growth but more than that an acceptance of parts of yourself that may not fit the norm. I do see great progress in your efforts for acceptance and growth.

    Sexuality does seem to be a theme of the dream. More often than not sexual depictions in a dream are as much metaphorical than literal {not actually involving sex}. But I do sense the sexual themes are a part of acceptance of your true self. It is literal as well as metaphorical.

    The other sense is bit vague but may have to do with mother issues. There may be aspects of acceptance in that relationship.

    I'll let you comment and then clarify my analysis in depth.


    Your Dream with Analysis

    I recall that I was in a house within my dream; more specifically, I was downstairs in a foyer area of a home located in the woods in the countryside. I recall that the walls were of white plaster with wooden trim of a dark, chocolate brown color.

This style of white plaster with dark wooden trim seems to be a running theme and I can recall many dreams in buildings such as that over a long period of time.

    inner life is prosperous despite any outer life conflicts. fertility, growth in life
    seeking and discovering true self



    I recall that there were two others with me, both of whom were women. One woman was about 5'8" in height and had fair skin. Her hair was in a somewhat short and wavy platinum blonde style that was tied back loosely. This woman seemed to be in her mid-twenties.

I recall that the older woman was speaking, but I do not remember what she spoke of.

    aspects of inner and outer self.
    outer self is OK. mental process desiring balance. open to new ideas
    instinctive, exploring new dimensions
    open about/to self, causal {may be a personality trait}
    unrevealed aspects that are developing
    inner voice




    The sense I had in this dream was that the younger woman and I had been married for exactly one week. I recall that even though we had been married for a week we had neither consummated the marriage, nor had we gone on any sort of honeymoon. The older woman was apparently the blonde woman's mother. My wife in the dream and I seemed anxious for her mother to leave as she spoke. Eventually the mother stated that she would be going upstairs to take a shower and she left our presence.

    uniting with outer self
    recent progress in personal growth. may point to actual waking life experience{s}
    wholeness not yet complete
    intellectual maturity
    cleansing of mother issues



    The blonde woman and I quickly moved through the house to a bedroom, presumably because her mother wouldn't bother us now. I remember a feeling of unbelievable anticipation as she led me with my hand holding hers as we went. The woman too seemed absolutely anticipatory of us being alone with each other.

Other details are lost on me besides the look of the hallway being consistent with the look of the foyer I was in earlier.

    anticipating/consummating balance and wholeness of both inner and outer self
    strong masculine/feminine attributes



    We entered a bedroom which seemed to possess the same character as the rest of the house. The door was closed and locked and we were now alone with each other. We proceeded to disrobe. As we did so I recall that she gave me a fruit that had come from a bowl on a wooden dresser in this room.

    uniting outer self with inner self
    exposing true self
    accepting oneself/fertility
    total acceptance


    The two of us were wholly consumed by a raw passion for each other. The tone of the dream and the character of the feeling that I remember wasn't that of an animalistic lust. Instead, we were utterly subsumed in the chemistry of our relationship, a chemistry of profound love and extreme physical and emotional attraction to each other.

    harmonious relationship of inner to outer self


    The last thing I remember about the dream is that we lept into the bed and embraced each other tightly, each of us pressing our body against the other. I remember a feeling of pure relaxation, comfort, and bliss during that embrace. I felt completely calm and at peace, though my heart pounded at what seemed to be a rapid pace. There was almost a lightness in my chest during this time. The overall feeling I recall was one of absolute love-induced intoxication.

    realization of and embracing true self
    total harmony




    Let me know your thoughts. I think you will recognize those aspects that fit.

    Jerry,

    Thank you for your thoughts on this. I cannot manage a reply this evening but I shall attempt one tomorrow evening. For the most part though I would say that my current circumstances largely affirm your observations.
