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.

    Lucid Dream with Numbers


    I'm new to this forum and would like some help with interpreting a dream I had recently:

    I was in a car with a lady who was driving me to a venue where I was scheduled to either speak to a group of people about my career as an artist/designer or teach them how to draw or paint (like a Paint & Sip, I guess). There were no close parking spaces, so we had to park several blocks away, along a street. Right outside the entrance was a sidewalk chalkboard sign that had my name written on it as a guest speaker from 2pm to 4pm. It had a sponsor name but there was a mistake, so the lady I was with erased the sponsor name and wrote in something else. (I can't recall what she wrote.) After entering the venue, I immediately noticed the atmosphere was pleasant and welcoming. The venue looked high-end and had a seating area near the entrance with several chairs and couches. Further back was a more open space that looked like a gallery but had a bar and a few high tables and chairs placed throughout. The upper level had another bar with one or two white couches. There were a lot of people in attendance – socializing, drinking and having a good time, but it wasn’t overcrowded. I saw a few friends and acquaintances there while walking through the place. I felt very comfortable.

    All of a sudden, the lady who was with me noticed that something was missing that was needed for my presentation. Then I realized I was not prepared for this event at all! I didn’t have my cellphone, iPad, portfolio or art supplies with me. I wasn’t even sure what I was supposed to present or demonstrate! I was at peace a minute ago but was starting to panic and trying not to show it to those around me. I wondered how much time I had to prepare and I saw the time was 1:51 on a digital clock or someone’s cellphone. Then, a man came up to me and said all I have to talk about is a time when someone disrespected me or my work and a time when I felt redeemed or overcame a hardship (or something like that).

    I felt a little relieved at first but couldn’t think of a moment that was impactful enough to talk about for 2 hours. I started thinking about how I’d rather anywhere else besides being right there and fail at speaking to a group of people. Then I remembered that I was dreaming and didn’t have to go through with it after all. I felt so relieved and decided that I was just going to wake up from the dream and that’s what I did.

    So, my questions are: Is this actually a lucid dream? (I don’t know much about lucid dreaming.) What could those numbers mean? Is there anything else that can be interpreted from this dream? Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Feel free to ask questions if you want to know more about my background or other details about the dream (if I remember them). Thank you!

    Re: Lucid Dream with Numbers

    It will be Sunday before I will be able to fully analyze your dream. A quick glance {cursory} I see these possibilities.

    As is the case with all dreams there is evidence of conflicting emotions. It may have to do with some required event in your life where something occured that left you feeling unprepared with failure being what frightened you {in actual waking life}. Afterwards you realize it wasn't as dire as you thought because you are in control of important aspects of your life that matter most {related to creativity being a good possibility}.

    As for the lucid dreaming. Unless you were aware or suspected early in the dream you were lucid dreaming this does not seem to be a lucid dream, a normal one at least. With lucid dreaming you are able to control aspects of the dream. The last part of the dream where you remembered you were dreaming may be more about the control of your life I mentioned. The desire to be anywhere else besides being right there may be addressing not only a desire to be where you want to be most {creative?} as well as a desire to be elsewhere related t an actual event in your life. Dreams do that with all dreams having at least two applications/meanings. This page will explain lucid dreaming Lucid dreaming: Controlling the stories of sleep.

    What numbers are you speaking about? I have the belief all numbers have meaning but not all important. I see numbers related to time of day and length of time and although they may have relevance they alone aren't suspiciously pointing to clues to the dream. Are there other numbers you didn't include in the dream post?
