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.

    I was standing on a narrow shoreline. Behind me was a steep hill and in front of me the sea. The bit of shoreline was an uneven, rocky surface. I couldn't see the water, but knew it was directly in front of me - it was a vast blackness, as if it was night time. However I could see the shoreline quite well. In my hands were 2 different snakes. One of them was small like a garter snake, and the other was a bit longer and fatter. This second snake had a silver-grey body and the front half of the body had protrusions like large fins, one coming out to either side. Both these snakes were in my hands but I wasn't holding them - it was more like they were sticking to me and I was trying to push them off me by brushing one hand over the other continually, trying to push them off into the blackness that was in front of me. I was anxious to get them away from me, partly because while I was doing this I noticed to my right a huge snake coming towards me over the rocks of the shoreline. This was a very impressive snake, not like the small garter snake or the distorted grey snake that were leaving. This big one I knew I would not be able to grapple with - it was about 12 feet long, or more, and was beautiful with colourful markings along its long body. It moved with complete assuredness, steadily, smoothly. It was already quite close to me and would momentarily be upon me, somehow. I was very frightened, yet at the same time the snake itself did not seem to be evil or vicious, was not really threatening, just moving steadily in my direction. And it certainly wasn't distorted like the ugly grey one that I was scraping away from me. The smaller snakes suddenly disappeared and I had a cell phone in my hand and had phoned my good friend and was telling him that this huge snake was coming my way and I was terrified. I knew he couldn't help me because he wasn't here. In fact I don't think he even was on the other end of the line - I was just leaving a message. The phone call was an act of desperation, I had the habit of calling him for help. But I knew I was alone with this situation. At this point I awoke.
