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.

    chinese family and sloppy terrain

    In this dream I am in the US... People move by car, but I am walking. The terrain is so sloppy, with ups and downs, and I have to go behind that street and then behind that building to get somewhere. I enter a building's yard and I see a chinese family sitting on the grass and eating plain, raw, unboiled rice! They look at me with surprise, but I keep walking. A member of that family was joining them with a cooked chicken.
    I leave that yard and see a rope hanging where I was supposed to climb to in order to get to a higher place. I start climbing.

    This much I could remember from the dream. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Re: chinese family and sloppy terrain

    You're just strolling along with life's ups and downs while others are driving their cars. Then you're shown a poor family and how one person can make all the difference. Then you begin to climb upwards.

    My guess is it's a message for you to unleash the goddess in you and reach for the stars so that you will be able to help others whom you love.

    Re: chinese family and sloppy terrain

    I think it may mean that you are awakening to a new way of being. Your are aware of aspects of you that previously you were not aware of. You are making strides forward toward a healthier way of thinking and dealing with life's ups and downs.

    you are losing fear of bringing well developed ideas into your life and taming the emotional aspect of your life. You are learning from that success.

    I also think, based on your last dream, that there may be a message about motherhood there too, as you have thought over the idea and are bringing the developed notion of motherhood to new levels in your life. At 29, a woman's hormones being to push her toward wanting to have a child, especially if she doesn't have one.

    YOu may feel that you are achieving this awakening to a new way of being in unconventional ways, but you are nevertheless moving onward with this new way of being.

    Re: chinese family and sloppy terrain

    Doug, Carlos,

    Just wanted to share this with you. My first thought about this dream was my husband-to-be family: I see them as similar and tied with each-other (Chinese family) and as sharing some kind of food (attitudes and culture) that to me was uneatable (I feel difficulty in adapting to that culture). As you both elaborate, the ups and downs could very well be the ups and downs of my life and walking means probably that I often chose the most difficult means to achieve what I want.
    But this is a very personal and directly related to the current events (as I see it). I felt your interpretations are more deep and thorough.

    Doug, your thought about my strolling along, the poor family and the one person making the difference, is right on about the situation in my family. My family has always been poor, and I am the person who has achieved a good position and income, and the one my family looks to for advice. I also appreciate your suggestion on unleashing the goddess so that I could help the others more. This may be another way of Carlos’ view of “moving onward a new way of being”.

    Carlos, thank you for looking at the big picture. I can see how I have evolved and grown up in these years, more and more resembling to a woman and more aware about my mother potential, despite not having a child yet. I am enjoying this process of awakening, although it creates fear.

    Thank you both for very helpful and insightful interpretations,

    Elona

    Re: chinese family and sloppy terrain

    i think you have touched on something here with your husband-to-be's family. They could be represented by the asian family, as well as as an aspect of yourself that you are outgrowing. they inadvertantly could be bringing up older notions of how to behave, or think. THese ideas you now find unpalatable.

    The asian coming with the cooked chicken (which could represent fears you had, and motherhood) is an aspect of you offering a different to nurture the spirit and to nurture your life and take it in. This way you find more palatable. You are developing, maturing, something that wasn't developed before.

    To cook something, is to add science, art, and technique to it. It is what makes use humans. When we hunger we don't just grab an animal and eat it raw. We bake it; we sautee it; we make a stew out of it. We add our human know how to it. And this may be what you are suggesting in the dream: you are not going to fear impulsively and let that dictate your actions; and you are not going to venture into motherhood impulsively. You are going to add your human know how to the issues, emotions, and urges, you are mastering.

    so whether the people eating raw rice are an aspect of deep seated internal urges within you, or whther they are your fiance's family's irrational behavior, what you are doing is maintaining your enlightened way of being, and continuing to climb higher in the evolutionary stage of your humanity.
