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.

    black and white suit

    I dreamt that I was wearing a black suit with a white top underneath. It was like I kept trying to cover myself up by pulling the jacket close over my breast. The jacket was big (oversized) and I felt that I was in a compromising position with someone in the dream. This person was not shown. All I could really see was myself, in black, covering this white shirt up.

    Re: black and white suit

    Black often symbolizes the unconscious. Covering up the white {purity, innocence, happiness} with black may represent that you are covering up one of these aspects. Unconsciously you are aware of what it is but consciously you do not, as of yet. The breast could represent the heart, or just the breasts. The jacket is another item to cover up with. But it also represents warmth. Too much warmth from the wrong person {too big}. Or too much affection from the wrong person. The compromising position is probably a straightforward expression. The unknown person may symbolize some unknown quality about yourself {what lies within the unconscious}, or it may represent a repressed aspect, or a real person that has been repressed.

    The dream seems to be about some experience in your life that you have ignored or repressed. It may have to do innocence {yours} and someone who has taken it away {the unknown person}.

    On the other hand it may have to do with your own emotional attitude. There may some innocence you possessed that has been taken away by other attitudes or emotions you possess. If you are happy person in general but have recently had your happiness compromised by other emotions, then perhaps this is the message of the dream.

    Look back in your life to determine if there were compromising experiences thatmay have had to taking your innocence. If not then look inward to your own emotions. It is you who is wearing the bacl suite covering up the white top {mental}. Let me know what you come up with and we can go from there.

    Re: black and white suit

    Of course there are many situations in my life that have taken away "innocence" from me. I won't go into detail in this type of arena. Anyway, currently there is a situation that maybe I am not mature enough or gutsy enough to take it on, but I guess my point is, none of these situations I can think of are new. I have spent much time analyzing these situations and I think the dream means that yes Im dressed in black, (impure, tainted) just due to life experiences, but subconciously I still think that Im above certain behavior. Subconciously I think that I don't have the same weakness' that others have, but I've found that this is not true. Im just like everyone else. But I think that the reason Im trying to cover up the "white" shirt is because maybe Im trying to maintain this deception, (the deception is that I think Im still pure in some way). A deception I've created for myself.

    Re: Re: black and white suit

    Your answer seems to confirm the symbology in your dream. But I would look deeper into the situation{s} that took away your 'innocence'. There is no need, as you indicated, to go into those personal aspects here at the forum. But until those issues are adequately acknowledged they will remain part of your dreams and the cover-up that the dream wishes to communicate. The jacket may indicate these situations are too big for you to handle, and there is a need to finally acknowledge them once and for all. The compromising position you felt in the dream will remain until all that is unconscious is addressed.
    Thanks for your response.

    Re: black and white suit

    If something is on your mind all the time, throughout your entire day, everyday, how is that not acknowledging it? Sometimes we cannot always "act" on what we are aware of. Is that what you mean by acknowledging it?

    Re: Re: black and white suit

    Cindy,
    By acknowledging something that resides within I mean that you need to confront the truth of the whole matter and put it in its proper place. If you are aware of some circumstance in your life that has caused several mental distress, you must confront the underlying issues that are at the core of this distress. Carrying it around with you all day, every day signifies it has not been properly dealth with.

    Often the issue is who is blame for this distress. You may have the idea that you were to blame for something in childhood that is at the core of your distress. In the cases where Catholic priests abused children, the children often blamed themselves for the abuse for one reason or another. Only until they fully realized {from counciling and theraphy} and acknowledge, 'no, I am not to blame, he did this to me', do they finally start the final healing process. Often it takes a confrontation with the abuser to finally start this process.

    Without knowing what specifically is at your core of distress it is impossible for me to say what is not being acknowledeged. If you are consciously aware of some past abuse and are still having mental distress over it I suggest you do seek counciling. If it goes everywhere you go, every day of your life then it has a hold on you, and you can never find that harmony and happiness you seek in life. If you can not act on what you are aware of, if it is a thing that causes mental distress for you, then you must work toward finding a solution to that problem, find a way to act on it. It may be a slow process but whenver you have to climb a mountain there is that first step to be taken.

    I don't understand the tone of the dream. How did it make you feel?
