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.

    Good Health-Balancing Body, Mind & Psyche

    As most of you know I am a true believer that dreams can promote good health because they possess the therapeutic affect of problem solving of emotional conflicts. But a truly balanced psyche requires much more than just a healthy mind {psychological}. It also requires a healthy body. There are so many positive aspects to keeping the body healthy through physical fitness and the article linked below provides insights to just how a regimentation of physical activity can improve the overall psychological capabilities of the human psyche. It has been known for some time that physical fitness can change moods positively. Now we have evidence as to why.

    Read this short article to better understand how the body has its own mechanism of defensive measures that promote overall health, physically and mentally.

    Phys Ed: Why Exercise Makes You Less Anxious

    I have occasionally mentioned by 30+ year routine of physical fitness. But I have seldom if ever spoke to the immediate realization of the positive experience after each and every time I have gone to the gym. That has been a constant in my life, some type of physical routine since the late 70s, with an immediate and positive change of attitude after each workout. I have always looked forward to my workouts.
    If it was a bad day to begin with, it reversed itself immediately after a physical exercise. Every time.

    This article provides insights to why that is. The body, mind and soul inhabit this one physical entity and although the body and mind can go in different directions due to 'their own desires {most often due to psychological conflicts}, a sea change is possible if a person begins and maintains a routine of physical exercise.

    Icons of Spiritual and Physical Disciplines
    Just as Jesus and the Buddha, and in more recent times Mohandas Gandhi, were well known for their spiritual identities, they also practiced {whether they knew it or not} a routine of physical exercise. And their vehicle for such physical fitness? Walking. Something I incorporated into my regular routine in the middle 80s {as opposed to running and more stringent exercise}. At 59 walking is still an important part of my routine, not just for the exercise but the time it provides for deep thoughts, which is in itself promoted by the physical exercise. It DOES NOT require an ungodly amount of time of physical fitness to realize the positive benefits. With a proper diet {another aspect of good health that too few people are able to follow} five hours a week can provide a quality of life that is distinct and noticeable. It is a lifestyle change, yes. But it is not so difficult as it may seem, it is merely a matter of discipline.

    Pay me now or pay me later also applies to good health.

    For those of you who are working toward building a balanced psyche, I hope you will take this to heart, this idea of a physical routine as a part of the whole concept in achieving a 'NIRVANA' attitude. The body and mind must be in accord to benefit to the fullest in this short life. The last years of life need not be an exercise of physicians, physical ailments and medications. And it is never too late to change, and when there is a change of attitude the life changes for the better.
