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 will list a few dreams,

    1) Myself and my crush entering our unknown ancestor home, which gives pleasant feeling for us. In that house i find in dirty hidden places and wherever i search i am getting gold bars but when my crush searches she finds the same looking gold bars but they are chocolates covered in gold paper, but for me it is pure gold, and then she tries to speak

    2) I was in a place suddenly i see a brand new girls gold ring with four diamonds embedded in it something tells my consciousness it is an engagement ring that is not yet wore by any one but has to be given to girl right now, suddenly in the background my crush's face appears she smiling at me but her face is little deformed

    Like this many dreams are involving me and her is coming to not only me my cousin sister also dreamed that me and my crush are getting married

    What does these dreams means ?
    Are these dreams telling something ?

    Re: Sudden recurring dreams about my ex crush

    Charles,
    First let me say if you have an 'ability' with dreams I suggest you read my pages on Jungian dream psyche and get an understanding of the science of dreams. Start here A Simple Guid to Dreams> Jungian concepts are based on the science of dreams and not on 'psychic' abilities alone {I consider myself 'psyche' not psychic}. There are proven concepts on dreams and when those are understood then your ability to 'read' dreams becomes more than just conjecture. It is also a scientific ability.

    Your Dreams
    If you want to know the real meaning{s}of your dreams then look at them as aspects about your inner self and not about your crush or anyone else. Although they can be applied to recent waking life experiences they will also focus on your psychology and emotions, what makes you tick and what factors there are for it. Dreams speak in a language of symbol and metaphor. The images and actions are mostly symbolic. Although no one concrete meaning can be assigned to an image/symbol there are universal meanings to many symbols. A house is always the dreamer or associated with the dreamer {a dream about your mother's house would be in relationship to your emotions related to her and/or what she would represent}. A house on fire would be symbolic of something within you that is on fire; fire symbolizing anger or greed, or passion, etc. Think about an image of being able to fly. That is 'literally' impossible. But when you read it in a symbolic translation it begins to make sense {in relationship to the rest of the dream and your actual life}. When analyzing dreams think about what emotions are involved and what patterns of emotional behavior are playing out in the dream.

    What I will do {and have done having reviewed my analysis} is to give a narrative of what I see from the dreams and then provide a breakdown of the images with a possible meaning.This way you can look at other possibilities to the images that fit with your life. Even the most experienced interpreter of dreams can only see so much in a dream, see outlines of possibilities and not an actual experience or event. You will need to take the possibilities I provide and see where they fit in your life. I'll give what I see in each dream and then provide the breakdown of the images at the very last of my post.

    First Dream
    If you want to know the real meaning{s}of your dreams then look at them as aspects about your inner self and not about your crush or anyone else. Although they can be applied to recent waking life experiences they will also focus on your psychology and emotions, what makes you tick and what factors there are for it. Dreams speak in a language of symbol and metaphor. The images and actions are mostly symbolic. Although no one concrete meaning can be assigned to an image/symbol there are universal meanings to many symbols. A house is always the dreamer or associated with the dreamer {a dream about your mother's house would be in relationship to your emotions related to her and/or what she would represent}. A house on fire would be symbolic of something within you that is on fire; fire symbolizing anger or greed, or passion, etc. Think about an image of being able to fly. That is 'literally' impossible. But when you read it in a symbolic translation it begins to make sense {in relationship to the rest of the dream and your actual life}. When analyzing dreams think about what emotions are involved nd what patterns of emotional behavior are playing out in the dream.

    First Dream Interpretation
    Two possible applications. One would have to do with the past relationship with your crush and the pleasant feelings you have from that experience. But there are concealed emotions that won't let you 'let go'. The experience with your crush touches on something deeper and that is the second and probably the primary focus of the dream. It may have to do with 'pleasures' since that is one aspect about the relationship that would possibly bring up the deeper subject the dream is trying to communicate {hidden aspects}.

    In that application {all dreams have at least two meanings/applications} there are past experiences that are 'hidden/concealed' within your unconscious to do with pleasant feelings, experiences you can't let go of. This experience{s} has a psychological affect on you, negative aspects that you keep hidden away from consciousness {because of the emotional conflict it causes}. There is an obstruction to your true self because of these emotional issues. There may be feelings of guilt possibly to do with indulgence with this past experience and a reason you must conceal it from yourself {and others}.

    Second Dream
    This dream also would have two applications. One possibility would be a desire to have another relationship that would make you get over your crush. This is the one thing that consciously you feel would make your life whole again..

    The second application, and deeper psychological application, would have to do with new possible emotions to do with relationships. There is a deep desire to find wholeness in your life, not only in your waking life but also your unconscious life {caused by the hidden dirty places}. There are barriers to achieving this inner peace, something that prevents you from being there. The past relationship with your crush may have ended due to some aspect related to the unconscious aspects that do prevent you from having a proper relationship. There is something deeper that prevents you from achieving wholeness, something that has deformed your ability to do so.

    Summary
    I sense the dream is on one level addressing the left over feelings/emotions to do with your crush. But there seems to be deeper issues that are a product of early life experiences/influences that help form your personality, issues to do with life that make up aspects of your personality that affect the emotions. This may merely point to aspects of being a bit overly emotional and nothing more. They could affect relationships, be something that prevent you from having a positive relationship.

    Another thing to look at that involves the 'dirty hidden places, are experiences from early life that may fit the dirty aspects. Those could cause negative energies and affect your personality as well as the inner self. There is definitely a question of wholeness {gold-ring-four-diamonds are all symbols that point to the true self and wholeness}. Something seems to be preventing you from being the whole person you seek to be {inwardly at least}. Whether it is merely a childhood that lacked all the emotional love and acceptance required for the foundations of a balanced and happy life as an adult, or something deeper, an experience involving 'dirty places'. What experiences are there that you keep hidden? It could simply have to do with your normal emotional life. Or it could involve something more traumatic. Only you can know what that might be.
