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.

    Child being missing

    I have a dream where my 5 year old boy goes missing walking home from school, he's missing for around an hour. I walk through a wooded area and he isn't there but two minutes later I hear a noise behind me and he is curled up lying on the floor very drowsy in a place I have already looked, when I speak to him he drowsily says "he let me taste his whiskey before he let me go" then I see a mans face with very dark eyes, and he says "you have a lovely boy" . I keep thinking over and over why I didn't see him there first time I looked and how the man wasn't there whilst I was looking for him. What is this dream telling me? Jemma

    Jemma,
    It has been a while since you last visited {2006}. Things have changed all around with you now having a 5 year old son. Motherhood brings about a lot of emotions.

    Your Dream
    Could this dream be related to your experience when you were 13 as noted in your dream post Death? Part of it probably is addressing a fear of the security of your son {a normal experience}. But it may have been at least in part stimulated by your own experience.

    As for the interpretation of the images without considering your previous dream post.
    Your 5 year old boy would likely represent his true self {one exception when close relationships can e taken literal and not wholly symbolic}. What the opening of the dream is stating {the opening of a dream sets the stage for what the dream is about} a fear on your part for the safety/security of your son. What makes me think the dream is related to your experience at 13 is the dream language, "in a place I have looked before". There are probably real life experiences involving your son where you have gone looking for him {a natural cautious attitude} and finding him in a usual place and that is a stimulus as a reference to your past experience. The tasting of the whiskey may be something real in your experience at 13. Symbolically it could represent a 'sensation' you have had {your dreams are about you and your emotions}. The whiskey could be your self-alertness and protective/careful nature, something you are more aware of because of your own experience. The he would be the haunting man of your past experience and 'you having a lovely boy' would denote your fears as related to the safety of your son. Not seeing him the first time would be addressing that 'first time' experience,one you do not wish to happen to your son. That man isn't there because it was a past experience {unless of course the real person is still around and presents an even worse and more realistic fear}.

    The dream is denting your fears about the safety of your son and possibly using your past experience as a part of that concern. Your past experience will probably be with you forever {if you can put it behind you it will not be a source of negative emotions in your dreams} and the dream is using those experiences as a reference to your fear. I wouldn't be concerned about the dream since it is natural for a young mother to have such fears, and dreams.
