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.

    Biting Cats

    Hi Everybody,

    I had a dream a few nights ago that three cats had somehow attached themselves to my back and I couldn't get them off me no matter how much I tried. One of them started biting me, it had its teeth sunk in deep into my back and it was really really hurting me and no matter what I did I couldn't get it off me, and couldn't get its teeth out of my flesh and keep it from biting me. It hurt so much and I kept trying and trying to get it off me and to stop biting me and I couldn't and it really hurt and I woke up then.

    Re: Biting Cats

    its a short dream, so it is hard to pin down.

    maybe someone said something to you, or told someone else something about you, that hurt your feelings: biting remark.

    or you may have come to realize that you limit yourself as a female, or because you are female, and this is making you weak.

    or, you could just be feelng dominated by something or things, or someone maybe more than one - probably 3- and probably female.

    Re: Biting Cats

    Hi Carlos,

    This is very true. My mom is still making very hurtful comments about my choice of a marriage partner and my spiritual values. Though I have never said anything negative to her, she feels she has a license to emotionally and verbally abuse me and I'm struggling to protect my boundaries. Sadly, it seems the best way is to have no contact, and this is very hard and sad for me. Our relationship has always been like this, if it wasn't my spiritual values and my marriage, she would find some thing else, as she did in the past. I recently was in a situation where I had to see her a lot, and so she took and is taking every opportunity to force these hurtful comments on me. Hopefully I will be able to get away soon, as that seems the only way to escape the 'bite'.
