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.

    Violent Dream

    I will add some background info that might be relevant for analyzing the dream at the end of the post. Here first is the dream:

    "I was walking through a city with a good female friend. We are dancing through the streets at night, we feel cool, we kiss, we hug. We come across another couple. I'm drinking beer and I'm saying that I'm going to drive later. The guy from this couple, a strong man, wants to take the beer away from me. I refuse, we get into a fight. I insult him, he demands a knife fight. In that moment I'm suddenly overcome with deep exhaustion / fatigue. He offers me a knife for the fight, I take it, but throw it away again. He suddenly has a rifle and I take out my own knife. I run, he chases me. I hack off his arm and then throw the knife at him. Now he has the knife though and comes at me. I'm too fatigued to do anything and he kills me."

    That concludes the dream. I'd like to add that I've been suffering from severe exhaustion / fatigue for about three years now, am not working anymore because of this and hope that the dream may shed light on inner workings. In terms of big five personality I'm average for extroversion, very agreeable, not very conscientious, very open and very neurotic.

    I grew up in a single parent household and was taken care of quite well in general (loving mother), but I do remember my mother being very exhausted, overwhelmed with the situation and lacking strength to properly discipline me and my brother. My father mostly ignored me / us. The divorce happened when I was 4, so I remember nothing of it, but have been told that it was violent.

    The female friend featured in my dream is an ex-girlfriend, but also a good friend to this day. I love going out at night in the city, so the background scenery of the dream was quite pleasing to me.

    I very much welcome any responses & ideas!

    Re: Violent Dream

    Metin,
    The dream may indeed be pointing to why you feel so fatigued and severe exhaustion. Emotional energies. It could be some aspects of the energies are related to your mother relationship growing up in that type environment. There may be inherent aspects also. Such type energies may require therapy to get to the true source of what energies are causing your fatigue.

    Here is my interpretation of the images/actions/symbols by sentence.

    I was walking through a city with a good female friend
    -possessing positive emotional energies/attitudes

    We are dancing through the streets at night, we feel cool, we kiss, we hug
    -a positive attitude/embracing your better emotional qualities {cool and calm}

    We come across another couple
    -another aspect of yourself/attitudes/personality

    I'm drinking beer and I'm saying that I'm going to drive later
    -confused thinking that drives you later in life

    The guy from this couple, a strong man, wants to take the beer away from me
    -strong positive self wishes to remove confused aspects

    I refuse, we get into a fight
    -in denial/inner turmoil

    I insult him, he demands a knife fight
    -insecurities causing inner conflict/aggression

    In that moment I'm suddenly overcome with deep exhaustion / fatigue
    -emotional issues the cause of physical issues/emotionally strained

    He offers me a knife for the fight, I take it, but throw it away again
    -needing to rid yourself of unwanted parts/missed opportunities

    He suddenly has a rifle and I take out my own knife
    -aggressive negative attitudes that need to be cut away

    I run, he chases me
    -avoiding a situation that you do not think is conquerable

    I hack off his arm and then throw the knife at him
    -ineffective at removing negative emotional energies

    Now he has the knife though and comes at me
    -negative aspects that need removal coming at you

    I'm too fatigued to do anything and he kills me
    -so emotionally strained you become disconnected from our true self

    Re: Violent Dream

    Hello Jerry, I greatly appreciate you taking the time to analyze my dream, your analysis is very insightful and gives me a lot to think about. The idea of the removal of negative parts resonates a lot. I keep trying to "cut these parts away" and I keep being "ineffective" at this. Which is quite exhausting. And I feel like the interpretation of the death as becoming disconnected from my true self hits the nail on the head. I'm sure my true self is the part in the beginning, the positive emotional energies, because that's how my personality was in my childhood and teens. But this self grows more distant, the longer this fight against the negative emotional energies goes on and the more exhausted I get from it. I will have to rethink how I approach these negative emotions. Finding more effective means of facing them or accepting that they are a part of me and then channeling them into productive aspects. In the context of the dream, I probably should have handled the altercation more maturely (not going into a rage and insulting this part of me) or maybe even attempted to befriend this part of me. That's a lot to think about. Thank you very much for this insight into my dream and enjoy your day!
