Asian Culture Beliefs

Posted By admin on January 13th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/01/asian-culture-beliefs/

Dreams and the meaning of dreams have been debated about for centuries.  Some say that dreams are merely a replay of our experiences during the day.  While others insist that dreams have hidden meanings that need to be interpreted.

All of us experience dreams.  These occur during the R.E.M (rapid eye movement) part of our sleep.  These last for a few seconds wherein our brains are awake and not really awake.  Because of this, there are some parts that we can vividly recall and some we forget.

Dreams – Repositories of Emotion

Posted By admin on January 13th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/01/dreams-%e2%80%93-repositories-of-emotion/

Kaloo scampered about me, leaping at me and licking my neck and face while I held him for a few seconds, every time he put his muzzle against me. My heart was bursting with the joy of my loving pet’s company. I don’t remember how long it lasted but some reckless moment in time put an end to the sweet dream and I opened my eyes to the view of my lonely room. It was December 06, 2008 – more than 9 years after Kaloo’s death (the lachrymose night of June 20, 1999). With a heavy heart, still beating the rhythm of the happy dream, I got up to face the challenges of the day.

This recent dream of my late pet dog is not a rare experience of an emotional scene set in a unique mental studio. Seeing my late kin close to me, the living ones departing, and a range of other emotional situations, has become a familiar phenomenon that repeats itself, every now and then, without any conscious effort. Dreams connect me to the past; take me to the future; and even paint a living and breathing picture of my present – all this without charging me a dime. Generous dreams!

Never Far

Posted By giesantos on January 12th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/01/always-in-my-dreams/


A year ago, I lost my mother to cancer. That was the darkest, confusing time of my life, since I fought right alongside with her during her year and a half ordeal and I was there when she finally gave up. I was not ready to give her up, not yet but I have to, the cancer ate her whole body right from the brain down to her ovaries. She was more ready than I was so I let her go.

I wasn’t given the time to mourn. Being her eldest, all responsibilities fell unto me so I have to be strong. There were times I cried myself to sleep for her and in my dreams, she’s there, waiting for me. There in my dreams, she would talk to me for hours and hours, until the sun comes up and I have to wake up. About 5 months later after that, I lost my job, and had a bitter spat with my father. All throughout those times, all I have to do is sleep and I will meet my mother in my dreams, comforting me and telling me how much she loves me.

Tarot

Posted By admin on January 4th, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/01/tarot/

The Tarot deck contains archetypal symbols that can be related to the analytical psychology of the Swiss psychologist, Carl Jung. The Tarot deck, especially the major arcana or trump cards, can be used effectively in therapy. The client, with the assistance of the therapist, conducts a reading or uses several cards to tell a story and then discusses possible meanings of the symbols in his or her own words. The therapist then relates the symbolic meanings given by the client to the client’s problem in much the same manner as in Jungian dream analysis.

Voices from beyond

Posted By Jlugo on January 3rd, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/01/voices-from-beyond/

I was extremely tired one afternoon when I came home from school. I had been up since 4:45am and decided it would best if I rested for at least an hour.  When I awoke from my nap, I was breathless and afraid. My heart hammered wildly as I tried to gather my thoughts. My sweaty palms clutched at the sides of my bed as I struggled to regain composure. Looking around, I realized that everything was as it should be. The soft afternoon sun filtered through the window, barely illuminating the room.  For a few seconds, I was able to think clearly, and realized that I was awake. I was out of harms way. Relief flowed through me but only for a moment because I had realized that in the dream I had just, the room I was sleeping in was exactly the same. The minimal sunlight was equal to the one in my dream, and the television I had left on was showing the exact same program I had seen on the television in my dream. My head began to swim as memories flooded back to me.  In my dream, I was stretched out along my bed, watching a romantic comedy. It was late afternoon. I drifted off and once I did, I felt a great pressure on my body. It was as if someone was sitting on my chest. I could barely breath, let alone move or speak.  It felt as if my whole body was too heavy, and I was pinned to the bed. I heard a strange whispering in my ear. It was as if the room was filled with people who were speaking in hushed tones. I tried to open my eyes but to no avail.   I then heard the whispering die down as the voices of a man and small, female child flowed through my ear. They said something along the lines of, “Would you like to know how we died?”.  Inwardly I responded yes, though I was terrified. Curiosity won me over. In my dream, it was as if I was finally allowed to open my eyes. Once I did, I looked down towards where my feet were and I saw a small, female child, around the age of 7 or 8, wearing a pink dress. She had blonde pigtails and was staring at me as she held up a poster board with words she wanted me to read. Try as I may, I could not read the words. Then, it was as if the child understood that she wasn’t getting her message across because in place of the poster board she held over her head, there was a pillow instead. She slowly lowered it to her face and when she let go of the pillow, it stayed suspended in mid-air, right in front of her face. I could see that she was thrashing her arms wildly, as if the pillow was suffocating her. I watched, motionless, though I tried with everything I had to move my body so that I may save her. It was of no use. I was pinned down. I wanted to yell but as I was about to do so, I awoke. I am a heavy sleeper, and I remember dreaming but I never seem to remember many of my dreams. Only the ones that have made an impact on me. I am, however, a true believer in dreams and the messages that are being portrayed through them. I am also a believer in the paranormal which is why I looked into the history of the home I am now living in. The house was built in the early 90′s, but the land that the house is built on was previously a forest. It is a wide belief that mobsters and murderers would dispose of the bodies of their victims in this same area. I could only guess at how many lives were lost on this land. As I have written above, my dream held the voices of many people though only two were heard distinctly. That of the man, and the young girl. I never found out how the man died, but I believe I have figured out a clue as to how the small girl was killed through her communication to me in my dream.

Flying Stingray

Posted By admin on January 3rd, 2009

http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/01/flying-fish/

I don’t remember much about what I dreamt last night, as is the case more frequent than not. The one thing I do remember is laying in a field of flowers as I watched as Stingray flew over the clear blue skies.  I queried stingray but unfortunately I was unable to find a precise definition, so I found the closest definition.

Flying Fish:
To see a flying fish in your dream, indicates that you are feeling emotionally free and uninhibited. Next I broke down the dream and looked for definitions for Flying: To dream that you are flying, signifies a sense of freedom where you had initially felt restricted and limited. Well I didn’t really need to interpret that because it’s meaning is classic case interpretation.
However interpreting the Fish meaning took me deeper into the semantics my subconscious was playing with me. To dream of Fish can symbolically have a religious meaning, it can mean prosperity, a prize or trophy, life force and potential. I spend every waking moment thinking and working towards my life potential, especially in the last few weeks when I feel I am so close to realizing my true potential.This dream is not a deep secret my subconscious is screaming to make me realize. This is me reminding myself of my path. I listen to my dreams to hear my voice. I listen to my dreams to remember that time passes us by. I listen to my dreams to stay conscious while I am awake.
