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.

    I was given a HUGE diamond ring. It was actually 2 rings an engagement ring and wedding ring. The engagement ring had 4 smaller square diamonds and I knew they were 1/4 each. Not sure how I knew. The wedding diamond was HUGE and square cut. They were all square. The ring settings were a beautiful brilliant platinum. They were the most beautiful rings. I was trying to find out how many carats the wedding diamond was. It was the biggest diamond I've ever seen. I had the rings on my hand the FIT perfectly. They were simply beautiful. The funny part is my ex-husband MAILED them to me and asked me to marry him. There was an inscription but now I can't remember what it said. I didn't want to marry him and there was no feeling of sadness, remorse or anything. I was just immersed in the feeling of beauty wearing this ring set and everywhere I went people noticed and commented on it. I kept looking at the beauty and size. It was gorgeous. I remember somehow knowing that I could keep the rings even if I refused the marriage. We never physically spoke he sent me this in the mail. So funny. I don't miss or even think about him so it has nothing to do with wanting to get back with him or anyone else.

    How Did You Find the Dream Forum? sure


    The symbols {images and actions}, diamonds, ring, the number 4, square {4 sides}, engagement and wedding rings all point to one single aspect. Wholeness, the desire of feeling whole. And if it is true of what you stated in the last sentence of your post about your ex, "I don't miss or even think about him so it has nothing to do with wanting to get back with him or anyone else" then the dream would be pointing inward, to your inner self. It is important that you find this within yourself and your life {platinum} wholeness. And if wholeness is lacking then that suggests something is lacking. Romantic relationships are not the issue {as stated in your post} so something other than that is the issue. Which points to inner issues, psychological.

    What is missing in your inner life? Only you could know and a good chance you do unconsciously but not consciously {what is unconsciously known but true is what dreams are about}. I can only venture a guess without knowing more about your personal life {including and especially childhood}. Let's examine a possibility using my philosophy that we all possess issues from childhood that go with us all our life that need reconciliation .

    A clue could be your ex-husband in your dream, not literal but as metaphor {since you are not interested in getting back with him}. As metaphor ex represents the past and husband the masculine. Past relationships related to masculine aspects could be the representation. Ex-husband could suggest a lack of masculine within yourself which could point to not having this quality which could point to a lack of proper masculine/male relationships in early life. Your desire/need this quality but as stated in your dream, "I didn't want to marry him and there was no feeling of sadness, remorse or anything." The description used may be pointing to an actual male and the prime candidate could be your father. Are there issues in that relationship? If so then look to that as a prime issue that is lacking in your life. Not just the relationship itself but not having received the proper masculine guidance in early life would be in important in forming your opinion of males and future male relationships. Wholeness would be from a proper relationship and if that quality does not exist in your life then marriage/relationships with men could be an issue and the need to reconcile this would be what would lead to wholeness. Of course you can't go back {ex} and redo the relationship with your father but knowing and understanding the emotional energies that exist in your psyche from the relationship would help in reconciling what is missing. You can't right a wrong if you are not aware of what is wrong. That is what dreams attempt to do {the body has the immune system to heal and protect and the psych{ology} has the dream}.

    Again the above is pretty much a guess but a good possibility since so many of us {including myself} did not have the proper relationship with their father. But whatever your issue is the dream is definitely pointing to a need or desire for wholeness in your life. What is it that is missing? Is there a void and you can not pin down what it is? Start with childhood and come forward, examine your whole life and determine what is missing psychologically. If your statement is true about not wanting a relationship it not only would point to that as a fact but could suggest there is a reason for it. You have this great desire for wholeness which becomes very important at midlife {when we look back more than looking forward in life}.
