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.

    Cockroaches.

    Okay, I'm in a basement. I don't know who's basement it is. There are cockroaches EVERYWHERE... they're crawling all over me. They are inside and outside my shoes and clothing. I'm absolutely repulsed and panicked. Someone is sitting in a chair. I don't know who it is. I'm telling the person to get them off me, and they're patronizing me and acting like it's no big deal. There is a hole in the wall... in the hole, Adam Sandler is sitting amidst the cockroaches, looking completely unaffected by them. His clothes are red and blue. With a grin in his face, he moves up and down inside the basement wall. I ask the person in the chair "How can he just sit there in them?". I seem to be the only person who's upset by this entire situation. Then, I wake up.

    What the hell could this mean?

    Re: Cockroaches.

    Liz,
    Who or what would you consider to be 'cockroaches' in your waking life? Something that seems to bother you but no one else? Whereas some people consider cockroaches as annoying pests others {myself included} see them as something that can cause bad health. This probably your view toward this person or thing and not others around you. It is most likely an unconscious attitude developed sometime in your life, something others may feel less concerned about.

    The Adam Sandler thing may be how others see the situation, make a joke of it. To you it is serious.
    {Although I like Adan Sandler it seems everything he does in his movies is a joke}.

    Re: Cockroaches.

    Wow, that makes a lot of sense. Both of you... especially Gerard. You guys wouldn't believe how hard it was to find anything on cockroaches in the dictionaries online. And the things I did find never mentioned them crawling on you... just them crawling. Which wasn't really the same thing in my opinion. I've been having a few issues lately that I just haven't dealt with yet. I know it sounds backwards, but I feel like it would be immature of me to succumb to my emotions and make a fuss when I'm supposed to be an adult. That dream was definately weird... it was very disturbing and I couldn't go back to sleep afterward, even though I shouldn't have been getting up yet. I just had to get on the computer and try to look it up. Thank you both for your feedback and I'd love to hear any more ideas you or anyone has on this subject. Take care!

    Re: Cockroaches.

    Liz,
    Those irritating pests, cockroaches. Many insects can symbolize irritations in life. Because cockroaches can be a health hazard you may want to look at persons or circumstances that are more serious than just being a pest. In the dream you are telling this person to get off you. That may be a lead.

    But also consider the person that needs to get off you being yourself. Perhaps you are your own pest, doing tings for others that you may not want to do or should not do. Many possibilities. Look at your waking life and determine what fits best. That is what dreams do, help sort out stresses in life.
