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.

    Living someone else's life

    I had a dream last night that wasn't scary, but was very disturbing to me. I was living someone else's life. I was living in someone else's home that I had entered without permission. I was trying to be careful and not alert any neighbors to my presence as I hid inside this house. In the dream I stayed there for a long time, exploring the house, sometimes inadvertently destroying things or otherwise disturbing the rooms in ways that might give away the fact that I'd been there when the owners returned. Later I woke up, went back to sleep and had the saem dream again. This time, both me and my infant daughter were living in the house, pretending to be the rightful owners.

    What the heck?

    Re: Living someone else's life

    Could be a few things.

    Do you feel like you are replacing someone?

    or, sounds like you feel alienated. if you feel this way it may stem from a deep feeling of not belonging where you were in your childhood or you may fear that you may fear it will spread to your child.

    Where you adopted, or living in someone elses house other than your parents as a child at sometime?

    Do you feel you lack ownership of your life?

    Re: Living someone else's life

    I think it's a message to tell you that your life on earth is not who you really are. You're only playing the part of the person you are on earth but you're really a spiritual person inside and your earth life is just a mask. The word 'personality' means 'mask'. We identify with our personalities but they are just masks the soul wears.

    My guess is you have experienced some form of stress lately and in order to try and alleviate the stress you have been shown that your life is actually just a stage show and not something you should get too stressed by.

    The things you damaged or changed in the house possibly symbolize the cause of your stress. Maybe you changed or altered something and later regretted it?

    That's all I can think of at this time.

    Basically I think it's a message that 'life is just an illusion or stage show so don't let it get to you.
