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.

    voices

    Last night I had a dream where I heard voices calling my name. I went outside to see who or what was there, and it was complete fog. As I walked a bit through the fog I happened to trip on a tree stump and went flying on my face. As I got up, I heard the voices again but could not distinguish who they were. I, therefore, went back in the house and fixed myself a cup of tea and was a bit shaken up. Again, the voices were calling my name. I have alot of deceased relatives but could not make out who these voices were? Does anyone have any idea what this dream could mean?

    Re: voices

    well often the house stands for the self in dreams so going outside may imply that you are looking at yourself objectively. Have you been looking at yourself objectively? Dreams can link to lots of things but think about that fog. Could it link to some confusion or unclearness in life in general.

    Re: voices

    Connie,
    In a Jungian sense the dream could describe the call of Psyche to mobilize one Self for inner Self work. A precursor to venturing previously unknown unconscious, ego conscious’ lack of clarity in this field. This is shown two-fold through dual meaning of symbolism for fog, tree stump, fall
     personal un-individuated Self with un/under developed aspects as stunted or cut off development and source of obstacles
     archetypal, (universal), symbol for conscious dominance of Psyche without integrated unconscious content…the metaphorical meaning of fall of mankind from god’s grace and expulsion from the garden of eden for having knowledge of sin, sin being a duality of conscious and unconscious, man and god, as separate.

    The dream denotes ego recognition of sharing in the group of aspects and existence of unconscious, all aspects comprising the Self in totality (return to house, fixed cup of tea). It’s only natural and expected ego is psychologically disturbed by this knowledge because ego would no longer perceive itself alone as totality of Self…welcome to genesis…

    As always, a dream interpretation is only a possibility. It is the dreamer that defines and ultimately decodes their dream symbols. Please let me know your thoughts about your dream and interpretation.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy

    I forgot to add...

    On a waking level, the dream may describe being secluded or a desire for seclusion from view of others and/or a desire for privacy, for a continuous period of time.

    Many thanks,

    Re: voices

    Thank you Kathy and Bobby for your responses..I do believe Kathy that for some reason I am always going back to my past and regret some choices I have made...so maybe that is why I had this dream with the "fog" in it..could be unclear messages from the past hitting me in the belt now in the present..who knows lol!

    Re: voices

    Connie,

    In Addition to the great help you recieved above, I would like to add a few things.

    It seems as if the problems that have caused you to feel as if "fell on your face", as the dream imagery depicted run deep into your sub.. that would be the tree stump's roots which run into the earth , although they are dead. So, maybe some vestige of the past still vexes you. The memory of past falls may be causing you to feel bad today.

    You are working to alleviate this now. the tea drinking is symbolic of this, but it doesn't seem to be taking effect as something still calls for you and seeks your attention.

    the calls could be past issues calling for you today and still vexing you, or it could be that some deep issue needs attention.

    and, this also coud be an issue you have under control, just resurfacing for a night in your dreams, for the purpose of venting steam.

    Thank you Carlos for your interpretation. Even though I say that I live for today, I still look back at the good ole days...and maybe not so good! The past has a way of haunting each and every one of us whether we want to admit it or not!

    Re: voices

    Connie,
    Examining the past and having regrets are a part of life. In mid life we're given the opportunity to deeply examine past choices, and regrets. If that examination is made with a critical view we come to guilt. When we learn to view the past objectively and with a non judgemental attitude we come to understanding which can lead to liberation.

    Ultimately that liberation is living the inner Self in the here and now...life fulfillment on one's own terms.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy

    Re: voices

    connie,

    you might too harsh on yourself. that would be why, although you are trying to calm yourself, you are still hearing the voices in the dream calling to you. the voice may be calling for you to look into yourself and deal with the issue of the past.

    Just be kind to yourself as you do this. The real issue, when it comes to falling in life is not that you fell, we are all human and fall. the issue is how do you get up and move on. the memory, and the effects, of something negative can haunt you long after the actual event, and this is what must be overcome. We can be very unjust with ourselves over past issues. Self blame internalized, is a flaw that we can easily overcome by a deep seated desire to live peacefully and harmoniuosly with ourselves, and deep seated and genuine self love.

    Thank you Carlos for the interpretation. I have been told before that I am my own worst enemy...so maybe my dream has subconsciously something to do with this?

    "Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and stars; you have a right to be here, and whether or not it is clear to you; no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should."

    Re: voices

    Yes, the dream seems to be about past issues, long dead, but still having an effect on your thinking process and interfering with you trying to live in peace.
    Be kind to yourself. Past falls are a learning process.

    the tea drinking and wanting to relax is a positive symbol in the dream.
    Another aspect of this dream that we might be missing, is that this calling of your name could be the beginning of the heroes journey. In this case you would be the reluctant hero. You immediately are overcome by your past, and ts lasting self perceptions as to who you are, and what you are capable of.
    This journey is a journey into your sub, and it is where you will be challenged to overcome yourself. The tree stump is part of you. It is the lasting memory of the past. It digs deep into your being and causes you to stumble. This act of falling on your face causes you to become introverted, and seek refuge within yourself.
    Now the constant call returns to haunt you, and beckons you to take the journey and face your fear.
    there is help on this journey. It will come, so long as you truly want to overcome your obstacles: and we all do.
    Now you have a cheering section, so fear not.
