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.

    bmsbabygirl,
    In what ways do you still think about your ex? Perhaps there are lingering feelings for him.
    But perhaps the thoughts are about aspects in the relationship he provided that may be lacking in your current relationship. I lean toward the later since your thoughts about him began after the dream. What was unconscious suddenly wants to become conscious. That may indicate something within the current relationship needs improving.
    Of course I have taken it upon myself to say things that I can only guess at. The dream is too short to give a truly definitive interpretation.

    bmsbabygirl ,
    There it is. Your feelings for your ex and the disappointment in your present relationship fits the dream. The unconscious only knows your true feelings. Now your conscious mind does also.

    But beware. Are your feelings for your ex genuine? You did break off that relationship for a reason.

    Re: dream about my ex

    bmsbabygirl,
    A general theory of Jungian dream psychology is the dream is focused YOUR life, with an emphasis on the emotions. What the dream reveals is your honest and true response to the emotional conflict. There is not that biased egocentric 'self' to guise or hide your true feelings.

    You may still have genuine feelings for your ex. Or it may well be just the negatives of the present relationship making the positives of the past relationship more attractive. It is a common reaction to such a situation. I may have had similar feelings somewhere in my life {I've been married more than once}.
    The goal is to understand which direction is best to take. That involves more than just one dream episode focused on just one aspect of your life. Separation in your current relationship, what would your dreams say about that? So much between here and there, and one dream can only say so much.

    You may want to try and remember future dreams, during the next couple of weeks and see where those lead. And they need not use real individuals {hubby and ex} to express your emotional attitudes, your TRUE feelings. Dreams will do that.
    If you do have a dream you believe important, post it at the Forum and let us provide our thoughts on what it/they may mean. The language may be more symbolic with perhaps the only thing to be taken literal is those people/things in your life that you FEEL MOST important. Parents, siblings, spouses, close relationships. But dreams will often use symbolic language to address the same subject matter. It would be interesting for us {contributors} to know how you dream, if your dreams addressing a particular emotional subject uses actual persons and/or symbolic representations.

    Have a note pad and a pencil by your bedside so to write the dream down. Try not to move from the position you are in when you awaken, lie there and think about the dream you just had. Details are important and so are impressions and emotional energy something in the dream may hold {how you feel about a person or thing in a dream}. Write it down, trying to give the details just as they occurred. Or the best you can.
    Someone has suggested you can enhance the chances of remembering a dream if you will drink a couple of glasses of water before going to bed and make your self HAVE TO GO in the middle of the night. Could work.
    Of course you could also HAVE TO GO so bad the only thing you can think about is GOING.

    One last thought {such a short dream}. Perhaps by suggesting you remember your dreams I have planted a unconscious seed that will stimulate such dreams. Post 'POST' suggestion.
    Whoops! Can't be an unconscious Post 'POST' now because I just mentioned it. Huh!

    I appreciate your responses and interest. Keep us informed. We all may learn something.
