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.

    In Water- Women asks to hold my head & kiss me

    Hi There-



    I had a dream we were in rooms with water, like each room was a hot-tub like environment- there was more to that, but I don't quite remember- i believe i was working there. in one of the rooms a woman approached me and said "may i hold your head" i said yes, please, and then she held my head and leaned over to kiss me - i liked the kiss and kissed her back. then a 2nd woman approached me and said "may i hold your head" and then i woke up-- any insights?

    i am in relationship with a wonderful man that i love- and i have been questioning my sexuality (for years, almost OCD like) and I am having a hard time receiving in sexual relations with him

    Re: In Water- Women asks to hold my head & kiss me

    Alyssa,
    Questioning your sexuality could/would be one aspect {if not primary} the dream is trying to communicate. Another, one that could be true along with the sexual question, could have to do with your mother. There are definitely strong emotional energies related to the feminine {the term itself being associated with strong emotional energies} in the dream that are 'controlling agents' in your psyche, unconscious and conscious life {the unconscious being your absolute true self}. With the added info about the questions you have about your sexuality and the difficulty with sexual relations with the male relationship, the issue of sexual identity would surely be a prime focus of the dream.

    As for the possible focus on your mother {the second woman in another context beyond but in accord with the sexual aspects}, if there were issues related to that relationship the dream could be addressing that as well. All dreams have at least two meanings/applications. If the amplification of the images and actions also with in the relationship with your mother then there are outstanding issues with her as well. In this mold the identity issue could be related to sex but also the environment with your mother growing up {hot tube/inflamed emotions associated with the mother relationship}.

    Read what I have presented in the amplification. Understand the dream is about your true emotional self, how you really feel about yourself and the world around you.

    Please provide a follow up response to my analysis. My services are free but I do expect a response so we can better understand your dream and my analysis.

    Re: In Water- Women asks to hold my head & kiss me

    WOW- yes.

    My mother wound is big. I wouldn't classify my mother as a textbook narcissist but definitely had narcissistic tendencies- I never really felt loved & nurtured by my mother-always felt like I was the adult, taking care of and worrying about her feelings & emotions. She never truly believed that I loved her- which made me question my own ability to love- a feeling of not being good enough.

    I am learning to mother myself & give myself the love & care I deserve(d). I am healing my relationship with my mother, moving into forgiveness, but deep down I am still very hurt. My little girl is confused.

    It has also come up in therapy that it is possible the questioning of my sexuality around women is me seeking loving relationship with a woman because it feels good, tender, & sweet and it is something that I craved as a child.

    It could also be a way for me to validate my own ability to love a woman (my mother).

    The last thing I want to do is repress my true inner nature (if I were a "lesbian") but it feels more like fear & doubt than truth. It really creates a struggle in my psyche.

    Any more insights?

    Thank you so so so much <3

    Alyssa,
    Having the bare minimum personal information {age and gender} I can only provide an outline of the emotional energies in a dream. But usually that is enough to give the dreamer clues to what energies are affecting if not controlling their conscious life. The added info always helps. Knowing your whole life info would allow a complete and useful analysis. That is if your dreams are a part of the analysis/therapy. Dreams are a direct link to the unconscious and from my general analysis you can see how much can be derived from one dream. Of course you would need a therapist who uses Jungian concepts to be able to tap into your dreams. But therapy is essential no matter the method being used. As long as the emotional energies are allowed to remain wholeness will be elusive. Continue the therapy and with time you should find some closure to the issues that plague you. Forgiveness is a big step and you are correct in working with that.

    As for the dream and the info in your response. Looking over the amplified images and actions the dream language, "she held my head and leaned over to kiss me - i liked the kiss and kissed her back" does seem to be addressing your neglected side which would point to your relationship with your mother {beginning in childhood, the most important years if life in psyche development}. Most of the other images and actions are addressing the general weight of the emotional energies and disturbances you are dealing with. Getting to the reason you have these strong feelings about questioning your sexuality would be important. I can see how a neglected childhood and a bad mother relationship would cause a need for feminine support and possible questions about sexuality. What was lacking in childhood is a prime motivator for actions in later life, a need to substitute what was lacking with attention and love from feminine sources. Are you attracted to or tend to navigate to a certain type female type? If so that may affirm a replacement in a type woman for your mother. Also, if you are truly a 'lesbian' I would think those tendencies would radiate in your conscious life. If your 'attraction' to women is not a soulful endeavor then I would go with the mother substitute as the motivating factor for questioning your sexuality. And there is the 'bi-sexual' aspect many people grapple with but that usually comes about in later life. Exploration beyond the true sexual identity due to various reasons, including failure in relationships with the opposite sex and seeking non-committal sex with the same gender. Even that would have unresolved emotional energies.

    If you want to seek more info from future dreams you can post them for my analysis {always free analysis}. The first dream usually opens the door to greater insights in subsequent dreams. The insights come with an analysis of those dreams. Until then I suggest you read more about dreams and the Jungian approach and concepts at my Power of Dreams website.

    Re: In Water- Women asks to hold my head & kiss me

    Great analysis, was plasure reading it.

    I notice only female elements, persons in the dreams so it is about feminity.

    I am not an expert, but usually people try to compensate. If someone does not get the deserved love from the mother then he, she could try to unconsciously get it from another person.

    In case the primal relationship(mother- daughter) was disturbed you could have problems with accepting and loving the feminity in yourself.) Jungian solution would be to stop looking for the mother outside of you but discover it in yourself and be a mother to yourself, develop mothering qualities.


    Hot tub like water - strong emotions
    In the dream your dream ego is passive and the woman comes to you and kisses you, similar as mother would,.. perheaps your wish to be loved and kissed by mother like figure?
