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.

    Hlaf bird/Half dog Dream

    Hi, I had a dream where I was inside, it seemed to be my own home, and I was facing a sort of glass door that underneath it, I could see through it, appeared a black half bird/half dog creature, it slid underneath and came towards me, I was a bit frighten, but then it returned back to its spot behind the door. It kind of shapeshifted like melted itself so it could get under and through the door in the little space...any ideas what this dream could mean?

    Re: Hlaf bird/Half dog Dream

    This is it,
    I apologize for not getting to your drea sooner. A lot on my plate and although analyzing dreams is my favorite thing to do I have many other pressing activities that doesn't allow me to put as much attention to it as I would like.

    Below is my interpretation of the images and actions in your dream. From that I see unconscious energies that are displayed from time to time. You may be aware of these actions but look at them as insignificant and ignore the results they cause. There was likely a recent experience of this nature. You are acting out unconscious tendencies and possibly repressing the source or reason for them. Look at what I came up with and see if you can recognize where they fit.

    -I was inside-introspection
    -seemed to be my own home-your true self as opposed to to conscious ego perspectives
    -facing a sort of glass door underneath it-invisible unconscious emotional barrier becoming conscious
    -I could see through it-consciously acting out unconscious energies
    -appeared a black half bird/half dog creature-amalgamation of unconscious and conscious energies/combination of unconscious and conscious tendences
    -slide underneath and cames toward me-displaying unconscious tendencies
    -I was a bit frightened-temporary panic
    -returned back to its spot behind the door-being aware of but refusing to confront a situation
    -kind of shapeshifted-unconscious and conscious transformation
    -like melted itself so it could get under and through the door-repressed emotional energies
    -in the little space-a small but inflated view of self
