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.

    Strange Dream Many Symbols

    Hello everyone,

    I do not dream often but last night I had a very strange dream that kind of made me nervous because I couldn’t figure out what any of it meant. So here is my dream..


    It took place in a hotel somewhere nice, There was myself, my roommate, a best friend from another state, and my first love who I still communicate with to this day.

    We arrived at the hotel and I began a romantic relationship with my first love, we hit it off everything was incredible after that we left with smiles and joined the rest of the people, once we met up with them we decided to go to a party somewhere in the hotel,

    The next thing I knew, I woke up there was my roommate my best friend, and no first love, I panicked, so we went to try to find our room, which we could not figure out where it was, I couldn’t remember a thing from the night before, I kept asking my roommate and friend what happened my friend couldn’t remember either, and my roommate looked at us like we didn’t want to know what happened.

    At the end of the dream, I was speaking to my best friend, and asked him repeatedly what happened the night before, and said he wasn’t sure but he thinks he may have hooked up with someone named Jeff (my friend is not gay in real life)


    When I woke up at 5 am this morning the dream felt so real to me, like I still needed to find my first love, everything was so vivid, and clear and it caught me off guard because I have never had a dream quite like this one,

    Does anyone out there have any insight as to what this dream may mean ?

    Thank you,

    seems like there may have been an issue of bonding and with whom. you may not have given your frst love the bonding she needed, or at least part of you may feel that way, and instead hung out with the boys.

    Re: Strange Dream Many Symbols

    Let me try to help. According to Jungian archetype symbols (simply and generally applied), a hotel relates to a temporary or transitory situation or mental state. Also, the dream characters are nearly always symbolic, and represent aspects of your Self. Your girl-friend (with whom you related to most easily and with whom you were most comfortable) could be symbolic of your ego self and your immature self. As is your roommate and your friend. All as aspects of your developing self. This would indeed represent a temporary condition out of which you will grow very quickly. It could just mean that you are at a stage of growing into a more mature state of being at this time in your life. Maybe you are reluctant to let go of this old carefree state of existence, and you are enjoying all of these aspects within the events in your dream.
