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.

    the truth

    I was in a public place like a school, but I’m not sure it was a school. But some students from my past school were there. As I was walking across a large space, I ran into a former friend of mine named Tina. Tina told me that she knew the truth about Ryan. And she told me that truth in one sentence. Then, I saw Ryan walking across from me. He looked right at me and nodded his head in agreement with what Tina said. Next, Tina and I were sitting on an orange couch in the middle of the large space with others. I think I heard everyone knew it (that truth) except me. As I followed Tina upstairs to find out more details about this truth and she said she had a report to read about it, we ended up walking around in what looked something like a shopping mall. We may have sat down in a circle with a couple other females on carpet next to clothing racks. Tina asked everyone a couple of intimate personal questions that she answered, but I didn’t want to answer because it was none of her business or I was afraid that she would tell others since in reality she hasn’t been a person I could trust. I may have left a favorite and flattering vest jacket on the floor on the other side of the room, which ended up being lost/stolen. I was mad that it was stolen. If a jacket in a dream has anything to do with protection or reputation, I never felt protected by Tina because she did something to ruin my reputation in real life concerning Ryan. When we were leaving, someone told me that I forgot to get the report from Tina so I ran towards Tina to try to get the report for more details.

    I don't know if this dream could mean the truth I was told is really the truth and/or if Tina really knows the truth?

    Re: the truth

    I'll look at this dream tomorrow. But I am struck by the fact both dreams open with being in public places. I will ponder that aspect with my analysis.

    Re: the truth

    The dream is less about who knows the truth involving issues with Tina and Ryan that it is about the truth about yourself, your true self. Tina is in your dream because you either share certain aspects/qualities with her or reject those aspects. My sense you are projecting 'rejected' aspects on her that you reject about yourself. Trust is an issue and that wold play out in your conscious life. Not trusting Tina {as the dream suggests and as you noted in added info} may be as much about self trust. Trust may be an issue from early life, childhood environment that caused you not to trust someone.

    I also sense deep repressed aspects in the dream that are the foundations for who you are, your attitudes/personality. That would go back to childhood and the environment you grew up in. The best way not to have to deal with such issues is to repress them, ignore them. That is where you are now {the dream ending}. Getting to those issues seems to be part of the dream message, confronting the issues and acknowledging them. As long as they exist personal growth will be difficult if not impossible. An inner search is required, psychological.

    Re: the truth

    Yes, I reject apsects of Tina of not being a true friend I can trust. Others can trust me unlike her, however, I often doubt myself so I deal with self trust issues. I do tend to ignore/repress past issues because I feel better not dwelling on them. I also think I know why I have trust issues so I'm not sure how I can search further.

    Re: the truth

    I appreciate your response. As for searching further on the issue of trust go back your childhood. Was there anyone who you should be able to trust but was betrayed by that person? Anyone in your family or other trusted persons outside the family who would have had betrayed that trust? One parent trusting the other? A relative who caused psychological or physical abuse? Trust issues have a bases from experiences. Find what that is and you can resolve the issues by understanding the emotional energies associated with the trust.
