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.

    A Personal Welcome to Carlos, Marce, Margit and Doug

    I want to welcome new voices to the Dream Forum. Carlos, Marce and Doug have lent there 'expertise' to the Forum and have added new insights to the dream. Margit has provided much to think about from her own personal experiences. Along with Kathy, Justin {Cavebear} and Steve there is a good diversification of views on the dream that is within a framework that works well for those who seek to better understand their dreams. I want to convey my appreciation to all for making the MDS Dream Forum the best dream forum on the web. Without you, there would not be a full time Forum. It is more than one person can handle.

    Thanks again for your time and effort, and expertise. I know that each dream is being properly addressed and I am confident every visitor that posts a dream learns something about the dream world, and more importantly them self. That is the real purpose for this Forum, that they learn about the 'inner self'.

    More reason to call it the "psychology of dreams'.

    Re: A Personal Welcome to Carlos, Marce, Margit and Doug

    Thanks Gerard, I'm touched.

    You have an impressive site!

    I'm fascinated by peoples dreams; and I'm grateful for being able share my ideas about what the dreams may mean.

    My approach is different than most, but then we are all unique.

    I've found that if I read a dream, and then give myself a lot of time to step back and look at it from different angles, I can see a clearer picture. But if I jump right in and post my initial impression of the dream I later see that I may have got it all wrong.

    So don't take anything I write too seriously

    Thanks again for the welcome.

    Thanks Gerrard

    As you know when helping to interrupt dreams one learns as much about themselves as does one learn about another. Thankyou for providing a site that enables one to discuss and learn from one another.
    Best to you Marce
