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.

    I can feel alot in that nitemare !

    Dear Community.
    This is the middle of the night. I just had a nightmare so it made me woke up. I am scared. I have never had a dream like this before, plus I feel it was like real because I can feel the shake and the noise....and everything. I am still sweating now.
    Here is the whole dream, I appreciate if anyone can unlock that dream for me because I'm scared.
    The first part, not scary, but I have to tell:

    " There were me and my brother in law. We went to meet some of my old friends from my middle school. ( I never thought about those guys in reality, have no idea how they could show up and get into my dream ). Then we started to practice KungFu together ( except my brother in law ). My friends are really good at KungFu in the dream. I didn't take any martial art courses before in the reality but I could feel myself fight very good in the dream, I saw myself can jump very high, do alot of kicks and fists combination. And my friends told me in the dream that I am martial art gifted. Summary I felt I fought for real.
    Then I told my brother in law that he should take some Kungfu courses because it's fun and improve health quality. Then he refused and we decided to go home "

    I am done with the first part, now is the second part, and it freaks me out :

    " We went back to my home ( My brother in law and I are living in the United States but I have no idea we ended up going to my parents home in my country ). So we went home and see nobody there. We were chatting, talking to each other and then we saw and feel strong wind starting to blow everywhere. The wind was getting strong and stronger, plus thunderstorm, and the sky was covered by black clouds. So the winds keep blowing strong and start to break the windows glass. After that the earthquake begun to start, (my God, I can feel the shake of the earthquake, like it happens in the reality, but I have never experienced an earthquake before in my life) , so back to the dream, I feel it shake very bad, things start to fall down in the house. My brother in law ran upstair and get into a room and locked the door. I was worrying for him ( as he locked himself in the room ) and my parents ( as they're still at work and didn't come home yet ). So I ran upstair and tried to open the room door but it was lock. There was a mirror fall down and I stepped on a broken glass. I saw my blood and broken glass everywhere on the floor and the shake of the earthquake was getting stronger. I can feel my body shake like crazy. I was so freak out and I woke up, I realized it was just a dream. "

    That's all. I appreciate for any help from members here to unlock my dream and tell me what's the meaning of that dream. Sorry for my English because I'm not a native American but I have already tried to write with my best efforts.
    Thanks alot.

    Re: I can feel alot in that nitemare !

    The first part of the dream seems to be addressing aspects of your personality and development. The middle school friends being in your dream may be due to experiences in that development. Perhaps you felt picked on and learning kung fu in your dream is a mechanism to defend against those earlier aspects, and not let those negatives continue into adult life.
    But there are parts of you that can/will not utilize a defence of this type {your brother-in-law}> Perhaps by looking at his personality you will discover aspects that will lend themselves to your progressing and growth.

    The second part of the dream seems to be addressing more serious emotional turmoil {strong winds}. Are things in your life seemingly falling down around you {at least some aspects of it}? Look to your emotional state of being.

    There seems to be something about yourself that you have locked away and can not get to. Your parents not being present may indicate there is no guidance in your life in confronting this issue.

    I believe the dream is addressing your development as an adult and childhood experiences probably have a large part in who you are. But what things do you have locked away? Your brother-in-law could be a metaphor for related experiences in your life that are products of past experiences. Perhaps also he has some identifiable aspects that you relate to.

    What is the condition of your emotional life? Is there something emotional in your life that is not on firm ground? The earthquake would be that emotional aspect of your waking life. And those hidden aspects. Perhaps there were troubling instances from childhood that have yet to be confronted. Look back at that time when you were in middle school and determine if there are experiences that could have to do with any emotional upheaval in your adult life.
