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.

    Wedding dream (any interpretations please)

    During the last two nights, I have had two similar dreams. They both involve me preparing for my wedding but not being ready.

    In the 1st one (the night before last), it was my wedding day. I was really late getting ready and I was panicking and rushing to get everything done, like my hair and make-up etc and I had no stylist so was doing it all myself.

    In the 2nd one, which I had last night, it was the evening before my wedding. (The wedding plans had all been done by my family and my fiances family so the location was to be a surprise for me). It was about 6ish in the evening (when all the shops were shut etc) and I suddenly realised we'd forgotten all about getting me a wedding dress. So again I wasn't ready and I was panicking. We then had to try and find a wedding dress shop somewhere near where I was getting married (as we were staying there over night) so that we could quickly go to get a dress in the morning.

    I dont actually see who I'm going to marry in either of the dreams, but I have a feeling its my current boyfriend who I have been with for 2 and a half years.

    I'd really appreciate any insights, interpretations or reasons for these dreams. Thanks.

    Re: Wedding dream (any interpretations please)

    The first observation that comes to my mind are you actually thinking seriously about marriage? Is it something that you have been preoccupied with for a period of time? If so then the fears and panic would be a natural result of such thinking. Getting married is a big change in life. With change there is always anxiety. Trying to decide what and where needs to be done is reflecting those natural anxieties.

    On the other hand the dream may not be focusing on your wedding day as much as it is on some other aspect in your life. Is there some other thing in your life that you may be 'about to marry'? Both dreams seem to be focusing on how you look, the make-up, the hair and most importantly the wedding dress. These could be items having to do with persona. The dream may be addressing anxieties about appearance and how you want others to perceive who you are. The wedding dress may represent that outer self that yearns to accept the inner self, a marriage of inner and outer self.

    Answer the first part first. If it lacks clarity as how it fits in your life {if there are no real intentions at this time for marriage} then look to other aspects in your life.

    Re: Wedding dream (any interpretations please)

    I agree with gerard.
    You are anxious about the image you project to yourself as well as others. Regardless of whether you are going to marry soon or not, that seems to be a theme in your wedding dreams.
    Another theme that seems apparent is that it is getting late to do something; probably to prepare for a new way to live.
    You may feel that you need to change something about the way you present yourself, yet at the same time tyou feel that you it is getting late to change this.
    Not seeing who you are to marry may indicate that something is mysterious about this new life you are going to embark upon. You don't know what the world has in store for you and you don' know if you are ready, be it the nmarried life or something else.

    well dreams use symbols to compare one thing with another. A wedding is a special personal day which involves great commitment. Think of some other theme in your life AT THE TIME OF THE DREAM that involved getting ready and that same sense of commitment and devotion
