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.

    Cruise Ship

    I was living on a huge ship. This ship was so big that I could not see the whole size of it, and I had for a long time been immersed in the daily life onboard. The ship had a heavy and completely metallic sense to it. The floors were huge and heavy iron plates with bumps on them to keep from slipping. Like this, everything about the environment was dense and hard and industrial. I was standing in one of several parallel lineups of people who were approaching a table where a few teachers were seated on the other side, facing us. We were all being graded, or somehow judged. When it came my turn I placed a large book of my own handwritten and illustrated pages on the table in front of my teacher, open at a certain place, and upon doing this I had an upsurge of emotions that all had to do with shame and anger and a deep discouragement about being inadequate. I saw people moving past me easily in the lines as they continued their progress onwards, but it seemed to me that I had always been stopped here and had experienced this disgrace over and over. I wanted more than anything to be able to give to my teacher something he would approve of, and something I could be satisfied with. But once again, the opposite was occurring. I was angry, resentful and desperately hurt. I reacted with fury to the woman behind me who looked over my shoulder to see what was written on the pages.

    After this incident I went to my private place of residence on the ship. It too was metallic, like a small car without wheels that was full of my belongings. I opened one of its doors and reached down to the floor and picked up a clump of dried shit that was there. I tossed the shit out.

    My teacher and I were then moving together, side by side. We were gliding past the great ship. We were sitting down as if in a car, but in fact there was no physical vehicle. I was amazed to see the ship from this outer perspective. It was not a beautiful place, but it was vast. It was lit up in the night sky like a whole constellation unto itself. However, from this perspective outside it, I could see that it was limited, that it floated in space like a huge blimp. He told me that in spite of my emotions and grave doubts, I was actually doing very well. He said he knows that I have thrown out some shit recently.

    (I have often dreamed of this teacher, for whom I have a great love and respect. He keeps contact with me in the dreamworld. Sometimes he has something to say and sometimes not. Sometimes we just travel together, and when we do there are always new sightings for me.)
