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.

    My Journey and Transition

    Having made it to my new location in Palm Bay, Fl. without major incident {I had four cats along with me on my journey} I am now in the process of slowing making the transition from the obligated social being and those responsibilities that required so much of my mental capabilities, to the independent fellow I have so longed to be. Settling into a new home {a large place for someone who needs so little room} I still have several days of needed tasks before I can fully concentrate on being my true self. Making my feline family comfortable is very important and I still have work to do in the yard to accomplish that. But the positive news is my psyche is making the transition quite well and everything associated on the outside {there will always be some form of social duty/dragon} has continued to fall into place. What is most comforting is my psyche is adjusting very nicely to my dream work. Several dreams have been posted at the Dream Forum since I have arrived and I have been able to provide what I feel are competent insights. Working with dreams is my path into unconscious stimuli. I do believe with all my heart there is a natural ground of 'knowledge' that is accessible to me if only I am able to put my full energy toward it. It is an intuitive source aided by the natural instincts the soul provides. And although I have only been able to make it to the shores of the Atlantic only once since my arrival I believe future visits will help stimulate those intuitive qualities. It is the one reason I chose the Space Coast to relocate, the great ocean being the ground from which all things human evolved, and return to. Some call it 'returning to the sea syndrome'. I see it as returning to a natural environment. Either way my conscious intent to journey to this place will inevitably provide me with greater access to the deepest resources available to the psyche. I am very confident in that. As strange as it may sound to those who do not subscribe to the greater mysteries in Jungian psyche I honestly believe in the theory, and practice. Time will tell. I will keep a log on my progress and pass it along to anyone interested in knowing.
