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.

    Blackberries, Ipads and the New Age of Doing Business

    On a related issue concerning the 'new age' technology. As many of you know my 'day job' is as a fence contractor {it is actually my son's business having bestowed it to him several years ago}. I started the business 33 years ago and have benefited from a steady income from it since then, even in bad economic times. But this year has been different. Business has gotten much better. Part of it is definitely to do wit the spiritual approach I have toward doing business. WWJD, deeds speak louder than words. I live by this code and 'naturally' it works.

    But there is something new that has affected business. In these days of terrible economic strain on so many people the new technology has proven to paramount in doing business. More and more people are throwing away their Yellow Pages and using the internet, their computers, their Blackberries, and Ipads to access information. This has greatly benefited our business, including our new operations in Orlando. So much so our sales are up 20 to 30% from last year {last year our gross sales were up slightly from 2009} and probably doubled our sales from 2009. In Middle Tennessee just about any category involving fence in a 'Google' search has us listed on the first or second page. This is free advertisement and eliminates the need for yellow page advertisement {which saves $10 to $20 thousand dollars a year if we were to advertise in Nashville and the 5 surrounding counties}.

    As for Orlando {Gifford Fence Orlando} which is in its FIRST full year of operations a search for 'wood fences' finds us on page 3 of Google rankings. A search for aluminum fences finds us on the second page. PVC {vinyl privacy} fence has on the first page. Orlando is a huge market compared to Middle Tennessee and this is just our first year. Credit my son for doing a wonderful job. But I take credit for his being my son.

    There is a quote from Bill Gates about operating a successful business in the new millennium that holds a great truth.
    There will be two types of business
    Those on the internet
    And those out of business

    Now let me state how 'we' got 'to this positioning' with search engines as it has to do not only with our fence business but also with my Myths-Dreams-Symbols website. For the fence business it has a lot to do with quality service and product. With Myths-Dreams-Symbols the popularity has a lot to do contents, quantity of pages as well as quality. But the recent increased rankings has as much to do with 'linking' from other websites, blogs and other internet creations. Yahoo has Myths-Dreams-Symbols with 8,499 'in-links. This is a lot of outside attention and it pays off.


    Over the past 13 years in which MDS has had an internet presence I have accumulated links from many sources and resources. Many websites link to the 100+ pages I have created on Jungian psychology, a topic subject that has grown in popularity because of his many discoveries into the psyche. The Dream Dictionary alone has accumulated hundreds of links. The Dream Forum is has a first page ranking. Google has MDS ranked #3 under Dream Psychology and MDS has the first two positions under Dream Psyche. These are positions I am proud of because they reflect not only my great interest in dreams and the deep psyche but also the popularity of dreams and Jungian psyche. Perhaps the thing I am most proud is the 'academia' attention MDS has received. An inspection of my 'followers' at my Twitter page will provide insights to this interest. I don't actively seek new followers preferring instead to reciprocate those who are 'naturally' led to my page.

    Let me be honest about one thing. None of my pages or any website to do with fencing or dreams receives the number of visits that a movie star of politician receives. We have limited audience. But if you are looking for one or the other it is valuable to have such great rankings. To supplement my income I plan to utilize the MDS website to generate a little extra income. There will never be charges or fees for accessing the website but I do hope to make something from personal interpretations and dream classes at the local level when I make my move to Florida. In my last prolong stay to Florida {I lived in Lakeland for 4 months in 1994} I often taught about becoming a 'beachcomber'. Why not do that, find a spot on the beach, settle in with a comfortable leisure chair and a T-shirt advertising free dream interpretations, donations accepted. An integration of the old me and the new Self.

    Linking To, and From Myths-Dreams-Symbols

    In the near future I plan to offer linking at Myths-Dreams-Symbols to other websites who support similar activities as does MDS. My intent is to 'share the message' about Jungian psyche, dreams, creativity, spirituality and other related categories. Anyone with a website who wishes to be added to my Link List you can do so by e-mailing me . All I ask in return is a reciprocal link to MDS.
