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.

    The dress

    I had this dream last week while sleeping under a huge Oak tree in northern Wales:

    There was a big celebration going on, many people were gathered outside on a large rural piece of land. The host of the event, a friend, introduced me to a sculptor who was there. This sculptor asked me my name, I told him, and he said that it was a young name. Immediately he began to sculpt a block of wood that was in front of him at about head height. He was sculpting my likeness as I stood there, and he worked so fast that in a minute the whole intricate carving was completed and polished. He gave the sculpture to me, and when he did so it turned into a dress for me to wear. The dress was the colour of spring green with a large moonlight-coloured collar that came down onto my back, over my shoulders and down my chest. This collar had the sculpture on it in 2-D. It was clear that the dress was to be worn from now on - it was not a ceremonial or special garment to wear only sometimes. The process felt like an initiation into the next phase of my life, which will somehow include the people who are at the celebration.

    My host then took me inside one of the huge old buildings that were on the land. This particular building was especially huge and ancient. There was a massive open room with walls about 50 feet high. Up near the ceiling there was a row of wooden relief sculptures that were each about 50 feet long and 20 feet high. He pointed at one of them and I looked more closely to see that the relief was a carved picture of many people, all facing forwards like a class photo. The work had obviously been done a long time ago, many generations ago, so these people had been together before my lifetime. Yet there was the feeling that everyone here was familiar to me, and that I was being reintroduced to them all again. Perhaps I was one of the people in this sculpture too. The incredible skill with which this huge and very detailed sculpture had been crafted, and the fact that it had been carefully housed in this great building for so long, gave it great importance, and also attributed great importance to the people who were depicted in it. There were other similar carved reliefs beside this one, but it was just this one that was pointed out to me.
