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.

    Forest monster's/spirit's

    Hi this is my first time posting here
    I'm from Germany, English is not my mother language so please excuse spelling or grammatical mistakes.
    Let me begin to explain my dream. I was alone in a forest, it was bright outside and it wasn't getting darker throughout the dream, the forest had a relatively wide road that went through it, the forest seemed very familiar (I grew up in a small village and we had a forest not far from our house it felt like it was the same forest from my dream but something felt off). At first  I was on the road but I went off the road into the forest. As I was walking I felt as I was being watched by someone or something but I was just walking forward not looking around to see what it was. At some point I got to an opening in the forest. It was a big meadow, I was standing between the trees on one side, it was like a big rectangle, I could see the trees on the other side they where maybe 100 meters away from me. But there where no trees to the left or right, it seemed like it was a big strip through the forest that was infinitely long (sry I'm drifting away from what actually happened but I'm writing everything everything that I remember). On the meadow there was some kind of structure like a tower and people were standing around it but I couldn't make out what it was. The next thing that I remember was that some kind of large creature was standing next to me, it felt big and bulky it felt massive but it wasn't tall maybe the same height as me. The next bit is a bit sloppy I don't remember all the details. From time to time more of these creatures started to appear about seven in total and everyone of them was unique they all looked different some colorful, one of them had really long arms and legs and all of them behaved differently and had their own personalities. At first I was a bit scared and confused. The next thing I remember is that two of them kinda ganged up on me one tried to poke me with it's long beak the other one with the long arms and legs mocked me in it's language, after that I ran through the woods but they followed me, appearing to my left or my right,then I was on the road again and ran down the road and everything went black. About a minute passed while it was black, now comes the strangest part, I could see again but it was like my vision was a camera . It even felt like I wasn't there it felt like a scene from a movie. There was a small meadow with a fence on the back and trees hanging over the fence, in the middle was a black silhouette of one of the creatures and a person slowly walking into it, then the "camera" zoomed out and there was a row of silhouette's all resembling one of the creatures and into each one of them there was a different person walking in, then I woke up.
    One last thing I should mention is that I had the same dream about half a year ago but without the "camera" part.
    Please take your time interpret them I really want to know what this could be
    Have a good day!

    Anonymous,
    I should be able to analyze your dream sometime today. Until then contemplate on the possible meaning of s few of the images in your dream. They are other possibilities but in general these may apply.

    forest-To dream that you are in or walking through the forest signifies a transitional phase. Follow your instincts. Alternatively, it indicates that you want to escape to a simpler way of life. You are feeling weighed down by the demands of your life.

    being watched-To dream that you are being watched suggests that you are feeling confined in your work environment or personal relationship.

    rectangle-To see a rectangle in your dream represents permanence, materialism and stability. Because of its four corners and four sides, it is also symbolic of the number 4.
    ---number 4- Wholeness; the completely integrated human psyche

    trees-implies strength, protection and stability. You are concentrating on your own self-development and individuation. personal growth

    camera-To see a camera in your dream signifies your desires to cling on and/or live in the past. Alternatively, it may indicate that you need to focus on a particular situation. Perhaps you need to get a clearer picture or idea.

    creatures-To see a faceless creature in your dream indicates a situation you are refusing to see or confront, but are aware of it in some passive way. This dream also suggests that something in your life is bringing up feelings of fear and insecurities.

    Anonymous,
    I am working on your dream and thus far I sense you are feeling pressure to measure up to certain expectations from a 'towering' personality in your life. This person may have had great success in their life and the same is expected from you. Because dreams are about unresolved emotional energies these expectations cause conflict in your life.

    I hope to finish your dream today. May be tomorrow. Working on several projects. If you care to respond feel free to do so.

    Anonymous,
    Before I provide a final analysis I need for you to respond to my previous post and promise you will respond to my final analysis. It takes a couple of hours at least to properly analysis a dream using Jungian psyche and since my services are free a response to my analysis is something you can do for my time.

    Re: Forest monster's/spirit's

    Anonymous,
    Here is the amplification of the images and actions from your dream. A lot to consider but my original observations remain. Feeling pressure to measure up to certain expectations from a 'towering' personality in your life or dominating expectations of yourself. I sense there is a person {male} that fits the towering personality and from that there are great expectations to measure up to this person. Or/and you are putting pressure on yourself to measure up to this as well as measuring up to your own driving expectations. There are signs of insecurities due to the relationship with this person {and from the burdening exceptions of yourself}. I also sense from the dream you are not the only persona who was/is affected by this male relationship {relative}.

    Other than this there are signs you have unique abilities but are prevented from expressing them. This is due to the 'towering' expectations of this person and pressures you put on yourself because of the relationship. These aspects began early in life and reflect the foundations you grew up with/in. it is affecting your life now to the extent you are having difficulties of being your own self, your true self.

    There is more to the dream that needs further examination. I will do that after you respond. The response may shed light on personal experiences that will help better understand those aspects {with your age and gender I can only outline the energies that are controlling agents in your life}.

    Amplification of Images and Actions
    Title: Forest Monsters/Spirits
    -forest-your unconscious/growth and strenghts
    -monsters-personal fears
    -spirits-personal complexes/not yet discovered or utilized powers or capacities of your psyche offering inspiration, creativity

    Dream {by sentence}
    I was alone in a forest, it was bright outside and it wasn't getting darker throughout the dream, the forest had a relatively wide road that went through it, the forest seemed very familiar
    -alone in forest-a particular unconscious aspect
    -it was bright outside/wasn't getting any darker-positive outward attitude/contineous positive outlook
    -forest had wide road through it-extensive/expansive sense of direction
    -forest seemed familiar-recognized aspects/established foundations in your life

    At first I was on the road but I went off the road into the forest.
    -at first I was on road-underlying foundations to your path in life
    -but I went off road into forest-unconsciously divating your direction

    As I was walking I felt as I was being watched by someone or something but I was just walking forward not looking around to see what it was.
    -as I was walking I felt I was being watched-being monitored as you progress in life
    -by someone or something-an actual person as well as your own self
    -I was walking forward-staying the path you have chosen
    -not looking around to see what it was-dedicated to your chosen direction/not being distracted

    At some point I got to an opening in the forest.
    -at some point-a particular time that was important
    -I got to an opening in the forest-a strong influence and powerful inspiration that affects your unconscious mind

    It was a big meadow, I was standing between the trees on one side, it was like a big rectangle, I could see the trees on the other side they where maybe 100 meters away from me.
    -it was a big meadow-security in being open
    -I was standing between the trees on one side-one aspect positioned for personal growth
    -it was like a big rectangle-stability in your principles in life
    -I could see the trees on the other side-visulizing personal growth as a surrogate to your principles
    -they were 100 meters away from me-measuring external accomplishments

    But there where no trees to the left or right, it seemed like it was a big strip through the forest that was infinitely long
    -no trees to left or right-personal growth attained by being centered
    -seemed like it was a big strip through the forest-an unconscious layer
    -that was infinitely long-powerful endurance in the strength of mind

    -on the meadow was a kind of structure-structured personal growth
    -like a tower-superior aspirations/superior person
    -people were standing around it-feeling pressures to achieve
    -couldn't make out what it was-

    The next thing that I remember was that some kind of large creature was standing next to me, it felt big and bulky it felt massive but it wasn't tall maybe the same height as me
    -next think I remember-being reminded of something
    -some kind of large creature was standing next to me-a 'towering' figure you are aware of and/or inner aspect that needs confronting/possibly causing feelings of insecurity {perhaps when around a particular person}
    -it felt bulky/felt massive-strong emotional energies
    -wasn't tall/same height as me-an inner issue identical to /or with someone who is your height

    From time to time more of these creatures started to appear about seven in total and everyone of them was unique they all looked different some colorful, one of them had really long arms and legs and all of them behaved differently and had their own personalities.
    -from time to time more creatures begin to appear-issues/persons that affected you earlier in life and continue to do so {unconsciously}

    -one of them had really long arms and legs-a sense of perception of self that guides you in life

    -next thing I remember -later life experience
    -two ganged upon me-overpowering conflict
    -tried to poke me with long beak-projected aspect that needs attention
    -one with long arms and legs-particular aspect that has ability to control

    -on road again-return to original path/foundations

    -about a minute passed while it was black-
    -I could see again-regain your vision

    It even felt like I wasn't there it felt like a scene from a movie.
    -felt like I was there-a void

    There was a small meadow with a fence on the back and trees hanging over the fence
    -there was a small meadow with a fence-insecurities

    -in the middle was a black silhouette one of creatures-outline of central aspects that are the cause for insecurities
    -person slowly walking into it-being in same position

    then the "camera" zoomed out and there was a row of silhouette's all resembling one of the creatures and into each one of them there was a different person walking in
    -camera zoomed out-past influences/experiences becoming outward actions
    -row of silhouettes resembling on of creatures-outline of personal traits related to personal experiences/influences
    -into each was a different person walking in-filling a void by being different from who you really are
