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.

    two recurring dreams

    I had these two dreams last night, but I have had both of these dreams repeatedly for years.

    In the first dream, I didn't graduate from high school so I had to go back to high school. (In real life, I received a warning from my high school that I wouldn't graduate if I had more absences since I already had too many so this was a big fear for me back then). I was running late getting ready for school and worried about my mom yelling at me that I was late for school. My brother is sometimes and sometimes not these dreams. In this dream he needed to use the car maybe to go to school as well...I don't remember. I wanted to use the car because I didn't want to walk to school or people to see me on the road walking to school. I remember having other dreams like this that I wanted to use my mom's car to drive to school, but I wasn't sure if I could). It was like if I was late to school, I wouldn't know my schedule of classes.I was thinking if I was late for school, I'd just go to the counseling office and see which classes I was registered for or register for classes then. I really didn't want to be there so I didn't care if I was late like my mom cared.

    In other going back to high school dreams, there's an assignment I didn't do or unexpectedly test I didn't study for. But it's such a nightmare for me to go back to high school because I hated it so much in real life.


    In the second dream, I was in a spacious, private bathroom that was at the end of a house. In the past few dreams, it was in a family house but not my actual family's house. I seem to wander looking for an available bathroom or get away from family members or family members might already be in bathrooms I pass. I'm not sure if I have this dream because it was hectic when I used to share one bathroom with my siblings when I was a child so I always wished for my own, private bathroom. To continue, the bathroom I was in turned into a large public bathroom without privacy stalls and then it turned into a gym that a group of guys entered in a door from the other side of the gym. I think they were either playing sports or later playing music in a band. I was waiting for them to leave so I could go to the bathroom, but they weren't leaving anytime soon. I was now outside this gym which was supposed to be a bathroom. Then, when I thought they were leaving and they knew I was going to enter through the door, they blasted music or I heard music blasting through the door so i still couldn't go in.

    Re: two recurring dreams

    I'll try to work on your dream later today but it may be tomorrow before I can get to it. I in the process of creating pages on 'Interpret Dreams Using A Dream Dictionary' and need to spend time with it today. These pages will allow people to interpret their own dreams using a Jungian based dream dictionary {actually two}. I am close to finishing it.

    Re: two recurring dreams

    Here is my amplification of your first dream. I think it is pretty much self explanatory. The issues with not receiving proper nurturing as a child seems to be the real issue as well as issues with your mother. The school in your dreams is alluding to education in early life related to family and close environment. Likely you recent have 'reflected' on your years in high school, an experience you hated. The same applies to your childhood, not having the proper nurturing from parents. This is why you have so many dreams about highs school. Your 'advanced' ;earning is lacking because of improper nurturing {education} as a child {from parents}.

    If you would please let me know how well my analysis fits. As I stated in my first response {I do apologize for being a day late} I am working on pages on how to interpret dreams using a dream dictionary {my dictionaries based on Jungian concepts} and I did just that with this dream. I found this dream fairly easy to analyze using the dictionaries. Your response will verify how well using the dream dictionaries are in analyzing dreams. I'll work on the other dream later today {I am once again working on my new pages, you can see it at Interpreting Dreams Using A Dream Dictionary}.

    Looking at the second dream I see the word bathroom is repeated often. Look at the word bathroom in my dream dictionary. You may be able to see what fits with your life. Here is the page Dream Dictionary B

    Amplification of Images/Actions/Symbols

    Re: two recurring dreams

    Oh, I really thought the first dream was related to my past experience of high school. However, I didn't receive proper nurturing as a child. What is advanced learning related to in real life?
