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.

    Strange Dream: Helicopter & Sydney harbour bridge

    Very strange dream

    I was along Sydney harbour somewhere and a Helicopter was doing repairs to Sydney Harbour Bridge it seemed like it. The helicopter then picked up the whole arche of the bridge….and I thought wow…can the helicopter cope with that? (even though it seems like a bit of a beast of a helicopter) the helicopter had the archers, then all off a sudden started struggling the harbour archers then pulled the helicopter into the water and completely submerged it. But the helicopter then dragged popped back out of the water pulling the archers with it (the propeller’s looked very big and strong) ….it pulled it right out of the water…..but the helicopter still struggled….it tried to rest the archers buy pulling a few tricks….but he didn’t work….and the archers started smashing into the shops around the harbour etc. people started running…I ran into a shop (looked like a newsagent) and realised it was a bad place to go into as it was a dead end. So I ran out again and ran into another corridor which other people were also running through there including a couple of my friends….i almost bumped into a paraplegic person….but I made sure I didn’t as I didn’t want to slow that person down also.

    Tom,
    On a waking level the dream may be about coming to understand something clearly and distinctly - a growing realization - of consideration in dealing with others and avoiding giving offense. Observing this ability and/or lack of in others and an inner desire for this person to better utilize a more tactful manner may be stimulus for the dream. And perhaps you attempted to inform them of their behaviour and/or the effects this has on others.

    If this interpretation fits, you'll get the Aha! feeling and identify in the days preceeding your dream a situation you witnessed or were involved where a lack of finesse and tact resulted in someone being offended. If this doesn't fit, we'll look at the dream again.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy

    Re: Strange Dream: Helicopter & Sydney harbour bridge

    i could definently do with alot more finesse...i agree with that!......i could be a tad offensive.

    Re: Strange Dream: Helicopter & Sydney harbour bridge

    Tom,
    Thank you for responding. Well, we've all experienced situations that in hindsight could have been handled better. Been there...

    A dreamer's emotions during a dream are very important to interpretation. While dream symbols are metaphorical emotions are literal and help define the symbols. If morbid was felt during the dream, then I'd say the interpretation is way off. If felt on conscious examination of the dream, then interpretation could still be close.

    Conscious view of chaos and carnage brought to mind morbid. If the dream were to actually happen in waking life conscious would view it as morbid. But unconscious, where the dreams and symbols originate, has a more fluid meaning not restrained by conscious.

    For example, to conscious a helicopter is a helicopter. To unconscious a helicopter is a vast number of things, like mobility, stealth, strength, vertical movement, armament, transport...all the numerous associated functions and attributes. Unconscious chooses a symbol, helicopter, to communicate not the helicopter but a function or attribute of a helicopter. All the dream symbols provide context for the other dream symbols, so we can identify specifically what each symbol means by it's use with other symbols, and then what all the symbols together mean.

    As an 'outsider' dream interpreters can look at a dream for possible meaning based on experience and universal meanings of symbols. The dreamer feels if an interpretation is close or not. Using Carl Jung's methodology, it's more often close than not.

    The last sentence 'i almost bumped into a paraplegic person….but I made sure I didn’t as I didn’t want to slow that person down also' could indicate a desire to be more considerate of others because this hinders you as much as them.

    This was probably more than you wanted to know about dreams...thanks for bearing with this.

    And finally, dreams usually have more than one meaning, because unconscious can use one symbol to represent multiple things. As you continue to mull over the dream you may find more meaning to the dream.

    Please repsond if you have questions or thoughts.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy

    Kathy

    You are too good, thankyou for your response and time, it’s definitely appreciated.
    I either don’t dream at all, or I go through patches of heavy dreaming……..when I go through these patch’s it actually worry’s me as I wonder if it supposed to mean anything to me, if it is, I would love to know, as I feel it may be important.

    I didn’t think it was morbid while I was actually dreaming, I thought it was morbid when I woke up. (Probably due to past experiences in life)

    During the dream I did think

    - wow look at the strength of that helicopter, but can it actually manage to hold the bridge?
    - When it came back out of the water, when it was submerged then came out, it looked very strong (the helicopter) in particular the propellers on top of the helicopter. I thought it was especially strong to actually come out of the water in particular lugging the archers of the Sydney harbour bridge.
    - but when I saw the helicopter struggling again, and trying to pull off some moves but couldn’t and the archers started smashing into things and everyone started running (including me) I thought that was chaos.

    Any of that make sense?

    Re: Strange Dream: Helicopter & Sydney harbour bridge

    Tom,
    My apologies on the delay here. As does happen work and life can get chaotic here. And sincere thanks for your detailed response. Absolutely makes sense. Because dreams and dream symbols are personal, relate to a persons life, the dreamer is the best interpreter.

    The intermittent dream recall may be dependent on the intensity of emotion or action during the dream, which in turn is related to intensity of emotion or actions during waking life. With practice and study of symbols, mythology and dream interpretation/psychology any one can learn to interpret dreams and reveal the meaning behind the symbols. And the meanings are important because they often offer perspectives that we are not conscious so are great tools in life. Myths-Dreams-Symbols site contains a great deal of information on dream interpretation if this interests you.

    In both your dream and response strength is a predominant aspect. I would ask rather than strength could the dream refer to determination to do or achieve something. Strength is a factor of determination. The helicopter possesses strength, a requirement for the job, but strength alone is not enough to accomplish the task. The overall theme factoring in strength and struggle would then suggest determination. Although in the dream determination to the end leads to an unexpected outcome. Bridges can symbolize (from Soul Future):
    A transition or transitional phase
    Moving beyond something without getting emotionally involved
    Striking a balance
    Rising above a situation, especially an emotional one, building a bridge over troubled water
    Overcoming difficulty, pulling things or yourself together, bridging the gap
    It may be a play on abridge, suggesting curtailing, ending, summarizing or shortening something

    With this perhaps determination to accomplish some task based on strength alone is a source of imbalance and acts as an obstacle to accomplishing what you want. In the end of the dream this ‘news’ is not what you want, and in escaping your concern for well being and safety may show this is paralyzing your actions in some area related to determination.

    What do you think?

    Again, apologies on the delayed response.

    Kind regards,
    Kathy
