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.

    Return from Iraq

    I am in an auditorium that I have been to many times for military banquets at camp ripley wearing Army greens. The high ranking generals are lined up on stage to shake the hands of all the soldiers as they call their names.Everyone there is from Civil Air Patrol(AFROTC) which I did as a child. And we all look that age to, (13-18.) They call my name for outstanding valor and bravery.I walk on stage, recieve my medal, and proceed to shake the hands of the generals. One very lage burly man with silver hair holds my hand and pulls me in. He whispers,"I know what you did." And I pull away, suprised. i kknew i didn't do what he was talking about but I knew about it. I woke up feeling proud but nervous.

    you may be proud of not adhering to traditional female roles in society and have done so for a relative long time in your short life.

    Re: Re: Return from Iraq

    the age range form 13-18, this caught my attention ,this is an area of major transition,from child into adult,
    the medal ceremony may represent a modern version of the right of passage ceremony,
    basically saying you have got through ok,
    maybe you have a little secret from this period of your life,maybe not,
    all in all the dream symbology seems positive,
    your unconscious self may be compensating your lack of self esteem at what you have overcome in the past,
    a little ego inflation is ok.
    hope this helps ,cavebear

    Re: Return from Iraq

    It may be helpful to know what he accused you of doing, if there was a particular accusation. The deed may be directed at some deeper aspect than just pride. If it is not something in particular that he accuses you of it may point to an unconscious aspect that you are not completely aware of or have repressed {you knew about it}.
    Or it could just simply be what Carlos stated. Clarifying this point may help us better understand the possibilities.

    Re: Return from Iraq

    sorry sitar, I guess I was in a rush when I answered your dream. I did not take into account the end of the dream, where you said you knew you hadn't done it.

    I think the dream is self explanatory. you feel you get credit for things you didn't do.

    the fact that it military people that are mistaken leads me to believe it may have to do with valor and bravery. Maybe you did act brave but are being too hard on yourself; you may feel you could have done more.

    did you shirk your resposibility? Did you bow out of something, that you feel you should not have?

    Re: Return from Iraq

    I am a little unsure of the link between the title and the dream. How does iraqw fit in exactly? Have you just returned from iraq in real life?

    In some ways people will start to jump to conclusions about soldiers in iraq. "we know what you did" could refer to secret thoughts that people hold about the methids that you have used. Perhaps you... like soldiers from iraq... are maybe regarded with suspicion as to exactly how far you kept to the rules
