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.

    dragon head

    In this dream, I was hugging a man I knew in bed. It was a comforting experience. On his back, it looked like a tattoo. Then, I think it was a dragon head that came to life (maybe the tattoo was a dragon and came to life). This dragon head attacked me or bite my hand. I stood up and ran away as it flew at mt It flew at me still trying to bite me. I don't remember if I tried hitting it when it landed on the bed. Dream ended.

    Re: dragon head

    Because all dreams have at least two meanings or applications this dream seems to be 'aggressively' addressing two different aspects of yourself and your life. One relates to your personality. From my amplification of the images and actions I think you will recognize that aspect of the dream {it should fit your personality}.

    Its 'a' second application that is left unanswered {not having additional personality limits my ability in this aspect}. This application is likely addressing a recent experience, one that focused on your strong personality {and being in control}. There seems to be an experience where control was an issue, one that challenged your 'authoritative' personality {and being in control}. It may have had to do with intimacy {beds are always difficult to define}.

    And there is the third application, one I tend to believe is always a part of our dreams. And that has to do with foundations to why you have, and need this type personality. Childhood and early life. A strong personality can be a defensive measure. That would require looking at your childhood environment and determine why you have these strong attitudes. It could have to do an 'authoritarian' environment {merely a suggestion since I do not have any personal info about your life}. That would relate to a personality characterized by extreme obedience to, and dependence on, a powerful leader or father figure. The man you knew in bed {not to do with intimacy} could relate to your father, an unconscious attitude that is played on in conscious actions {resulting in your need for a strong personality}.

    Does any of this fit? Having only your age and gender limits me to being only ably to outline the energies from the dream. You will need to put the rest together.

    A reply is requested.

    Here is the amplification of the images and actions. These may help you in determining more about the dream, and yourself.

    Dream Title: Dragon Head
    -strong personality/self image

    hugging a man I knew in bed
    -hugging a man-embracing your masculine side
    -in bed-bridging your unconscius with your conscious self

    comfortable experience
    -feeling secure about yourself

    on his back, looked like a tattoo
    -your attitudes, a sense of individuality

    I think it was a dragon's head that came to life
    -think it was a dragon's head-believing in your strong personality
    -that came to life-consciously living your unconscious attitudes

    dragon head attacked me or bit my hand
    -dragon head attacked me-devouring aspects of your strong personality/attitudes
    -bit my hand-questioning {you and/or someone else} questioning your authority/strong attitude

    I stood up and ran away as it flew at me
    -stood up-taking a stand
    -ran away-avoiding an issue
    -flew at me-agitated at yourself

    still trying to bite me
    -continuing to aggressively bother you

    don't remember if i tried hitting it when landed on bed
    -don't remember if i tried hitting it-unable to let go when facing aggression
    -when it landed on bed-issues of control {possibly related to intimacy}

    Re: dragon head

    I thought I added this additional information, but I suppose the post didn't go through. I don't know if makes a difference, but the man in this dream was either half asleep of asleep (passive aspect)???

    I have to say this is an amazing analysis or EXACTLY what happened with the man in this dream. The man in my dream and I may like each other (intimacy). I think he's used to being in charge or control at his office, but he commented that I was trying to control things or tell him what to do to make things perfect. This made me feel mad or challenged because he didn't really listen to how important these things were to me so I needed to point them out. However, I don't always act this way. It's just when something is important and will be overlooked unless the person takes it seriously.

    In my childhood, there was extreme obedience to my controlling father figure. The man I knew in bed wouldn't relate to my father, or maybe that's why he came across as more passive as I mentioned earlier??? Although he takes charge in his office, I don't find him controlling.

    Re: dragon head

    Although the recent experience you noted with the man who you are interested {the intimacy} is being addressed in the dream the primary focus is more likely the relationship with your father and issues from that relationship. The way you acted with in the recent experience would likely be related to the father relationship and your personality traits developed during those foundational years. Dreams deal with emotional energies that are in conflict or conflicting {mostly negative in dreams but can be positive} with the intent to help resolve the issues. Dreams are nature's tool to help heal and protect the psych{ology} just as the immune system is to the body. To get to the core issue would require more insights to your life.
