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.

    Passengers in an aeroplane

    Oh no, not another travel related dream!

    My son and I are sat close to the rear of a commercial passenger aircraft. If one is looking toward the front of the plane from the rear, we are sat to the right hand side. My son is sat next to the window. We are talking to each other.

    I am not aware of any other passengers or staff on the aircraft, which appears to be airborne, not staionary.

    No one else that is, except my ex's (my sons fathers) partner - his co-conspirator/partner in crime. She is sat right at the back of the plane in a single seat - near centre from the left hand side of the plane(she was once an air hostess in real, waking life- but I dont know if this is relevant to the dream)

    She is pretty tacky and nasty anyway, but she is wearing lots of plastic jewellery - beads around her neck and lots of dangly earrings - really cheap and she is making derogatory statements about my son and talking over/interrupting my son and I.

    I get up and she is still talking and I start to strangle her. She cannot breathe and I see her eyes pleading with me to stop. She looks upset, so I stop.

    I wake up and wish that I had not stopped, had not shown compassion to her.

    the plane ride is a drastic change in life. THe ex being on board is a person getting in on the change and annoying you by getting involved, and you feel she shouldn't.

    of course, choking her is choking her; not letting her talk.

    Re: Passengers in an aeroplane

    well dreams can mean lots of things. But this dream seems to firmly deal with the need to be ruthless and to not show compasssion. Think about the day before and thoughts about the day to come. How in any way does that thought process seem relevant at all.

    Re: Passengers in an aeroplane

    On a waking level the dream seems to describe external conflicts and obstacles you encounter in developing the relationship you would like to have, (without the ex’s/ex’s spouse abuse and interference) with your son. That’s natural to be reflected in your dreams. However, the entire situation may be reaching a crisis and possibly a turning point.

    On a deeper level, the dream could display a desire or need to heal the inner male child and a feminine aspect’s interference in the process. Conscious ego perspective views this feminine aspect as apart from Self, not a part of Self. The dream could show the aspect is in the unconscious and may experience arrested development due to subjection to males possessing dominance and/or superiority complexes. The result could be a feminine aspect that denies or interferes with male traits such as intellect, logic, desire for nurturing, etc in favor of negatively developed feminine traits of overwhelming emotion, excessive nurturing, etc.

    This could connect to the Passport dream. In Passport father could symbolize authority and creation. The passport successive change through progressive levels. Out of date, yellowed pages and musty smell could represent arrested development occurring at some point in the past. The changing moods depicted in photographs being various emotions about the change point and as a result of subjection to those male complexes. Questioning why – and ‘it means nothing’ – showing that it does mean something and cannot be discounted or repressed. 1986 would be a clue to the source/creation – look to 1986 for a male personality that possessed a complex(s) and subjected you to their complex(s).

    Finally, the entire dream series may still point to progressive steps leading to a decision. Sorry to keep on this topic...but the dreams and your posts do appear to show a progression through a decsion making process.

    As know the standard disclaimer.

    about the woman on board. you feel she has a chintzy way of trying to hide her impulses from you. Her impulses, or emotions, are plain to see for you, although she tries seem reasonable. This is your view of her.

    Re: Passengers in an aeroplane

    Thanks for all of your insights.

    I have yet to read 'Uncles' dream link - but will do so later tonight/tomorrow.

    My ex's partner talking over my son and I and saying negative things, struck me as her attempt to denigrate/efface my son and I and yes, I would like to 'silence' her. She has lied via that which she has stated on behalf of my ex in his and her defence and lied by omission. My son has mentioned her with direct regard to the abuse he has suffered/is suffering. Her intentions are dishonourable, she has amd will lie to 'keep her man' - yet she is, by choice, in an abusive relationship. My son is the bargaining chip for this situation as she and my ex perceive it.

    Ifanyone of you have heard of the British child murderers from the 1960's - Myra Hindley and Ian Brady - then these two have the same dead eyed/psychopathic look of those two monsters. And no - I am not exaggerating.

    Back to the aeroplane - yes I am hoping to succeed with career plans - just to place me in a comparitively strong position financially, and yes, I want to get my son back with me.

    There are no other passengers other than my son and I - we fly 'solo' - the impediment to our contentment being the constant 'overriding'/overtalking/negative factor of my ex's partner and her perception of herself as somehow - not replacing me - but effacing me as my sons maternal/nourishing source. NOt that she wants to 'replace' me in my sons affections - she callously enjoys his misery, that much she shares with my ex.

    And yes, I do need to be more ruthless - that was my first response upon waking - show no compassion to those who commit evil acts.
