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.

    Passport sent by my father

    I dreamt that my father sent me a passport.

    It was someone elses passport, not mine. She was meant to look similar to me, but she did not look similar to me, except that she had brown hair and eyes.

    The passport looked old and it smelled old and musty. It looked out of date. As I looked through it, there was not one ID photo, but many photos, in casual poses, all with slightly different hair styles.

    I kept thinking 'why has he sent me this, she doesn't look like me and I am sure this is out of date'. The musty smell of the yellowing pages was quite noticeable in the dream.

    The photographs depicted various moods and in at least two of the photos, the subject had short brown hair (I have long brown hair) and looked troubled/worn out. As I turned the pages - starting from the back, I eventually reached the main page at the front of the book - the same woman was smiling, looked relaxed and she had long, mid blonde hair, although I thought that she had died it this colour.

    I again thought 'why has he sent me this? It is of no use to me. It is out of date. It means nothing'. I tried to guess the expiry date and the year 1986 seemed relevant/to become apparent on the page.

    Re: Passport sent by my father

    maybe your father doesn't know you as you are now?
    Or maybe when your father last saw you you had a lot on your mind?

    A deeper meaning might be that your male aspect doesn't know you as you are now and can't connect with you because of it; although it is trying to get you to come over and come in touch with yourself. It seems to be in touch with a more haggard you, tha even you would not recognoize if you stood beside yourself and saw yourself.


    1986 was 21 yrs ago. I guess you were 20 then?
    another meaning of 1986 could be "1" the begining, 9 the end of singular numbers or a singular way of being, and being at the threshold of a new way of being. 8 would be infinity or the eternal, and 6 are all of the physical senses of humans or the complete human physical experience.
    You could be at the begining of a road that will make you a more complete person in touch withy the eternal.
    You may need to resolve the passport issue with your male aspect.

    Re: Passport sent by my father

    Thank you Carlos.

    I tried to think of a significant event/catalyst that occured when I was 21, but nothing came to mind.

    I also did not know whether to add the digits 1+9+8+6 or whether to look at each digit individually.

    I remembered this morning that in this dream I also became aware that this was a 'Hungarian' passport. No links to Hungary by any stretch of the imagination in my life, but it may have been a play on the word 'hungry' or a Hun called Gary (which is even less relevant!).

    When I was leafing through the passport, I noticed a gap for the childs photograph and details and I dwelt upon this for a moment. These days children have their own passports and are not included on their mothers passports. I was still aware that this was not my passport, but was somehow meant to represent a false sense of identity and I was troubled by the fact that no-one had bothered to fill in the childs details.

    It is quite self explanatory in some ways - I am forced to live a lie, my child is absent and I do not recognise myself as the person I once was. My father does not care for my son or for my concerns for him (my parents split up when I was 15 months old and I did not meet my father again until I was 16 yrs old).

    Re: Passport sent by my father

    Good link to you made there about your child and living without him. I think that is it.

    Your father may be giving you the paasport because he is intimate with not recognizing his own child. maybe he is a much hated aspect in you that is now somehow being used to help you deal with your issues. It certainly says that acceptance of the issue is not at heart with you, because a distant figure in your life is used to present this situation to you.
    The short hair on the unrecognized women are you, but a you that you can't accept, as that other you seems less feminine (the short hair).

    hope this helps :)

    Re: Passport sent by my father

    Hi Carlos

    The distant figure of my father is of someone who would be in a position to help, but by choice, does not. Someone, whom by first appearance (oh good, a passport!), seems to be offering a 'way out', (or so one would hope) but on closer inspection, the claims are invalid, the documents are out of date.
    Someone who has essentially offered with one hand, but taken with the other - a passport which turns out to be invalid and not only that, no provision for my child within it. This man wants my love and attention, like a spoilt child would, but does not care for that for which I care - i.e. my son.

    All this says to me is that, as usual I must stand on my own two feet, that no 'Oskar Schindler' type philanthropist is going to step out of the mist to save me ( not that I ever thought anyone would, but it would have been nice!) and that actions speak louder than words.
