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.

    The Portable Jung

    While listening to the CD of Anthony Stevens 'Jung: A Very Short Introduction' I couldn't help but think I had heard this before. I wrongly thought I had read his book previously some years ago but going through my 'library' I could not find it. Nor do I remember buying the book {I do have it on order}. His words not only rang true to my senses but were very much in exact terms to how I approach and interpret dreams {at this Forum}. His description of Jungian psyche are very much my thought patterns.

    A 'cultivated' intuitive mind can access aspects of the unconscious beyond the norm, I believe this as fact. But the exact reasoning and vocabulary of Jung's words are not a part of that unconscious content {not as a norm}. So why is that so much of what Stevens has to say is so familiar to me? Not the overview of Jungian philosophy but exact words? Well I found the answer. I had began a refresher course in Jung and Campbell and one of the books I had in my library was the The Portable Jung edited by Joseph Campbell. While reading the book at Starbucks at Indiatlantic beach {a new ritual I undertake several times a week} it all came to me. What Campbell had stated in the book is exactly what Stevens was saying in this CD. Along with Campbell's other books {most of which I have read} Jungian psyche is a real possibility to understand for the layperson. Anyone, including those who are trained in Jungian psyche as a professional will appreciate Campbell's articulation of Jungian psychology. If an ordinary mind like I possess can comprehend Campbell's articulation of Jung most anyone can do the same.

    On the subject of Indiatlantic Beach. My rental home is 15 minutes from the beach {1/2 mile from the bay as the crow flies}. Melbourne has a great arts district located downtown just of the Indian River Lagoon{Bay}. The photo on the left is the Boardwalk. Starbucks is across the street from the boardwalk next to Bizzarro Pizza, Cold Stone Creamery and Burrito Ranch Co. As soon as I finish this post
    I am headed out the door to go to Starbucks, and the beach.

    Oh by the way. It is 74 degrees and sunny here in Palm Bay, on the first day of December.

    On a more personal note it is my son's, Jerry, 40th birthday. He lives in Orlando and owns a fence contracting business. Gifford Fence Company of Orlando {he also still has the business in Middle Tennessee}.
    Fence contractor. What I use to do before I followed my bliss to Palm Bay.
