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.

    Dream of cancer...

    Today I had an odd dream...
    I had some type of cancer, I can remember my mom telling me that in the dream...
    Then I was in the bathtub feeling really weak and I collapsed...
    My vision was fading...
    And everything was turning black...
    Then I saw just black for a while...
    Nothing else..
    Then I woke up somewhere else...
    I can't remember excatly where...
    And I was still feeling very weak..

    Thank you for listening.

    Re: Dream of cancer...

    Look to your last posted dream to help understand this dream. The changes you are undergoing {I have a 13 year old grandson going through the same changes} are often dramatic, or at least they may seem to be for you.
    The cancer is probably related to mood swings. There may be times when you feel helpless toward the world {normal for your age}. This comes about because of all the changes you are going through, psychological as well as physical. Going through puberty alone can cause such dreams, the body reacting to the changes and thus causing mood swings. You are still in your infancy, teenage wise and are weak compared to your older peers {peer pressure is a strong emotion during the coming years}. Waking up somewhere else probably represents the changes. You were one person yesterday, another person today {from adolescent to teen}. My grandson seemed to change overnight. His appearance, he grew taller all of a sudden, his voice changed and he was no longer the little boy.
    This is most likely what is happening to you. Your dreams will use drastic imagery at times because you are undergoing such drastic changes.
