Dreams - What They Are and Their Function
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 attempt to reveal 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.

    Day Dreaming

    Everything has some symbolism, when we are dreaming, is the main language, but i think it is also like that when we are awake. Usually, people who stand mostly on his left leg, are people who depend much on his/her mother in some sense. Left means our feminine(Passive) side and right means our masculine(Active) side. Theres so much symbolism in our everyday life and our daily events can also be interpreted. What do you think about it? what other symbolisms do you recognize?

    Re: Day Dreaming

    You are correct about symbolism in our daily lives. But what needs to be understood and differentiated is the symbolism opposed to signs. I came across this explaination that may provide a better understanding.

    SIGNS: These are objects or ideas that point to something clearly. Examples: An advertisement, a road sign, the weather showing portents of rain.

    SYMBOLS: These 'could be' linked to signs (hence the tendency to interchange the meaning of the two terms). However, their meanings are deeper. Symbols are reflections of something more profound than itself. Example: The sun is a symbol for something more than itself – it "symbolizes" warmth, creativity, and power.

    If you seeking symbolism in your life that may define aspects about yourself a stop sign would not necessarily apply. But on the other hand there may be forces at work that will use a stop sign a symbolism as to what direction you may need to take in some aspect of life. But I would not look a every stop sign and think it means 'to stop' at evey turn. Insetad I would seek symbolisms that are inherent and universal, from the psyche. Native Americans use symbols as a way of life. Look at the following:

    Native American symbols offer us a complete and reverent language of life, nature, and spirit. This language is unmatched in it's depth and power.
    This language derives it's power from the fact that American Indians viewed all things - whether seen or touched - living or inanimate - as possessors of a spirit.

    Further, they recognize that everything in the universe holds a deeper meaning. As a result, all objects and beings deserve one's attention and respect. Therefore, Native American symbol meanings are an integral part of the Indian life.

    Native American symbols bring concepts to mind that surpass words. These pictographs convey profound beliefs and perceptions.

    To a Native American a stop sign would be just that, a stop sign. Deeper forces control their power to understand symbolism in life.

    Re: Day Dreaming

    Exactly, i meant symbolism. Also about disease, it depends on how it manifest, it could mean something else. For example, just recently i got fever for a week, i couldnt find a reason, so i looked deeper and i remembered that i had such thoughts as "Staying in this house is making me sick" or "I hate this house". Exactly in this period of my life, i feel like leaving my house, and i just hava made excuses not to, so i did not obey my inner will, then staying it the house it really did "sick" me. Also i have seen that in friends. A friend of mine gets kind of nausea when her mother visits her. She is always saying that her precense "Sophocates" her, so the uncounciouss takes it literally and when next to her mother, she gets the feeling of not breathing and gets nausea.
