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.

    Dream about holding hands what does it mean?? Please help:'(

    What does holding hands in a dream means ? I had this dream about a guy staring at me from somewhere behind me (we were at uni in a amphitheatre-kind of room and he was somewhere up behind me) and I felt that he was watching me, then for some reason I went to get something from someone close to him and as I was getting back to my seat he moved next to me.

    Then he took my right hand in his and I was OK with it idk why I felt very comfortable and safe.

    When I tried to pull my hand back he only held tighter as if idk I felt like he was trying to comfort me... (also I know that guy so he's not necesarry a stranger, we have the same classes and like he's always looking at me idk kind of weird...)

    Larry2297,
    I'll provide more comment on this post once I analyze you other dream.

    Hands often represent your relationships with those around you and how you connect with the world. There may be strong emotional energies related to guy you know but the associations may be less about something he did to you physically or an actual experience you had with him {even though it could represent that}, but as much or more about psychological associations. If there are not any actual experiences with the guy then something about his character, personality and/or actions resonate because they fit with deeper aspects within you he would symbolize. he may have stirred something within you emotionally {"I was getting back to my seat he moved next to me"}. He may remind you of some other male who made you feel comfortable, or attempted to make you feel comfortable {in a weird sense}.

    I'll provide more Sunday. It does have associations to the other dream, there is a 'guy' in both.
