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.

    white roses

    Hi everyone,

    I just had a dream that I am not sure how to interpret. If anyone has any idea about it please let me know, thankyou.

    There is a river flowing and in the river are beautiful white roses growing. I start to pick some and make them a part of my clothing. Then somewhere in there is cauliflower, maybe other vegetables but mainly cauliflower I remember. I think my father is hovering somewhere around in the background to.

    That is all I can remember. I read on this site that a river can can be a strong symbol of emotion. that roses have something to do with the beauty of nature, getting in touch with nature, that white can represent purity, innocence, peace, happiness and joy, that vegetables maybe something to do with spiritual nourishment and clothes are our persona. As for a cohesive interpretation I am not sure.

    if anyone has any idea about it feel free to discuss it.
    thankyou,

    Re: white roses

    Is there something in your life causing you to feel less feminine?
    Maybe you feel that as time passes you are losing your innocence and purity as a female?

    Re: white roses

    no i dont think so, i feel rather tranquil and peaceful at the moment, so i was thinking perhaps the river is emotion the white roses symbolising how i really feel (peaceful,calm etc) and the fact that i add them to my clothing is maybe that I am beginning to show it in my persona, express how i am really feeling now. I dont know if thats it but that is one idea I have.

    Re: white roses

    I dont think i feel like i am losing my innocense and purity. maybe i might feel that I am losing my femininity. maybe because i am not the ideal body shape anymore. have put on weight etc. Im not huge just not as nice a shape as i used to be. but femininity should not be all about outward appearance in my view. but maybe thats how i feel deeper down that i am losing it i dont know.

    if that is the case whats the point in knowing that i have a fear of losing femininity when I cant do anything about it anyway?

    thanks for the idea anyway carlos.

    Re: white roses

    Feminity is a a gender trait, it can't be lost, but that doesn't stop people from thinking it can be lost.
    the dream may mean that you should make femininity more of an internal, thing rather than something to be seen from the outside in.

    Many people have you been exposed to the idea that as a woman gets older she becomes less attractive. society also pushes this notion on us, as we never see anyone under 24 running for the Ms. universe title. This maybe the reason for the cabbage in the dream.

    Also a cauliflower ear occurs when an ear is banged up, and traumatized. The cauliflower could represent that you have heard these ideas and they have been hurtful to you.

    Re: white roses

    Thankyou carlos for your interpretation. I guess i will have to try making it an internal thing.
    That was helpful. I will endeavour to think of femininity as being an internal thing rather than an external thing.
