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 Da Vinci Code/Holy Blood, Holy Grail

    Before there was The Da Vinci Code there was Holy Blood, Holy Grail. Both call into question the historical record of Jesus and in a final analysis {from more recent discoveries} there was more truth to their assertions than organized Christianity wants us to believe. Holy Blood, Holy Grail led me to look deeper into Gnosticism, the heretic account of Jesus and early Christianity I believe to be true {as opposed to today's orthodox view}.

    Before I begin my inspection of the posted dreams this morning I want to note the death of Michael Baigent. He, along with Richard Leigh {he died in 2007} and Henry Lincoln, wrote the book Holy Blood, Holy Grail which was the primary source of much of the material used in Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. The similarities result in a law suite and trail brought by Baigent and Leigh accusing Brown of using their materials {which the court affirmed but so that it found Brown guilty. Here is my assessment of the book and the reasons I note Baigent's death.



    Holy Blood, Holy Grail**









    I first read Holy Blood, Holy Grail some years ago and it was natural that Dan's Brown's DaVinci Code struck a cord. Several of the claims used as key plot elements in the Book, and movie, are first noted in Holy Blood, Holy Grail. Authors Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh are suing Dan Brown's publisher Random House for plagiarism on the grounds that his book makes extensive use of their research and that one of the characters is named Leigh, has a surname (Teabing) which is an anagram of Baigent, and has a physical description strongly resembling Henry Lincoln. In the book Brown also mentions 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' as an acclaimed international bestseller (chapter 60), and claims it as the major contributor to his hypothesis.




    Update on lawsuite The London court found for Dan Brown, the suite was dismissed....
    Update on Lawsuit from MSNBC { April 7, 2006}







    But withstanding that, the hypothesis is compelling. For a Jungian such I it makes all the sense in the world. In both Dan's Brown's DaVinci Code and Michael Baigent/Richard Leigh's Holy Blood, Holy Grail we are introduced to the Gnostic Jesus, and the feminine principle which was given so much consideration from Jung in his psychology of the psyche. Why would the church, Catholicism, object so streneously if these publications/movie did not present a threat to the dogma it has preached since the 3rd century? Take a close look at Leonardo Da Vinci's most famous painting, The Last Supper. The aspostle seated to his right. Is that Mary Magdalene**, the first Apostle?
