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.

    workers from the past

    The other night I had a dream where I was out in the country at someone's house..don't know whose house..but I was walking in this house on these beautiful hardwood floors and came across Karen..a girl I worked with years ago out in Massachusetts.
    Karen was sitting on the floor with a huge pot on the floor peeling potatoes and throwing each one in the pot.
    I called out her name, "Karen" she yelled out, "Connie" and I sat next to her and talked.
    I asked how she was and what is going on over here?
    she said she did not know either but was given this huge pot, pairing knife and potatoes to peel them and throw them into the water...
    I looked around and saw other people in the rooms talking and asked Karen if she knew these people and said she "did not"
    I said, "this is crazy Karen" what the hell are we doing here??? she said, "I really don't know"...and then the dream had ended and I woke up..what in tarnation could all this mean??????

    Re: workers from the past

    Connie,
    Let's go at this in mind that the dream is about your life and the actions reflect something about you. Since the dream takes place at 'someones' house and in the dream is a friend from the past, this may be saying something about influences outside yourself. The experiences of Karen in the dream are most likely addressing some type{s} of experiences you are having in your life. Perhaps aspects about Karen reflect similar aspects in your life.

    The pot on the floor and peeling potatoes {or is it s? I will have to consult a former VP}. During the years of the 50s it is quite common to reflect on the past, peeling back the years and throwing into the pot {your total self}. Does Connie in some way remind your of experiences taking place in your life? You seem to be on a firm foundation {the hardwood floor may represent a sound psychological self}. Sorting through all the potatoes, peeling away the past and seeing {or seeking} what life is all about at age 50+. The other people in the other rooms are probably other aspects of yourself, aspects that have not yet been fully analyzed and sorted through. Perhaps these things need a little more 'peeling'.

    Focus on your old friend Connie and see where she was in her life when you knew her. How old was she? There may be similar experiences the two of you share.

    Re: workers from the past

    Thanks Gerard for your interpretation..I can say that out of all the workers in my room, Karen was the most difficult to understand..she would smile and laugh alot and deny that she liked Paul who worked in one of the other rooms..but everyone knew she liked him.
    I do not know if Paul cared for Karen the way she cared for him..Too bad I lost her number to see if something happened to the two of them...I might just call up the company one day I worked at and see if Karen is still there....

    Re: workers from the past

    Connie,
    The suspected relationship between Karen and Paul, could that have any connections to your life in the present time? In the dream "I asked how she was and what is going on over here?". Also in your dream there is the statement "I looked around and saw other people in the rooms talking and asked Karen if she knew these people and said she "did not". The other people in other rooms could symbolize past experiences related to current conditions in your life, and at the same time represent aspects about yourself that you are searching through. Focus on these possibilities to determine if there is a relationship. One thing to remember is that the dream may have occurred and have little relevance other than the similarities between the past and your present. Not all dreams, in fact very few, are life altering. They merely reflect your emotional condition at the time of the dream, be it good, bad or indifferent.
