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.

    Dreams and My Interpretations

    It is amazing how much even a dream can say about a person's life. Few dreams point to any one concrete thing in a person's waking life but instead the dream provides 'periphery' evidence of emotional energies. The actions and flow in a dream are as important in understanding the dream as are the symbols. And because no symbol is 'fixed' {a symbol could mean something different in another dream or in another person's dream} it is often the actions in the dream that expose the dream's intended message. Once I get a feel for the flow of energies, patterns emerge I then put into words that hopefully the dreamer will understand. Articulating in the simplest words is a big part my job of interpreting dreams. Often a dream will reveal something the dreamer doesn't know {had forgotten or repressed}. Those type dreams are usually very important dreams and getting to the root of the emotional energies behind them will often prompt the dreamer to think more about the experiences causing an emotional conflict. If I can get the dreamer to give thought to the dream's message I feel I have accomplished a lot, even if the person doesn't understand the whole scope of an interpretation. What was buried has been 'dug up' and that give light to what are often dark secrets within the unconscious.

    Interpreting a dream
    I often think to myself after posting an interpretation that perhaps what I have offered is totally wrong. That would tend to confuse the dreamer and likely give an impression dream interpretation is like a psychic card reading or predicting ones future using a crystal ball. Fake and not reliable. Defending dream interpretation as a reliable science is hard enough and if my track record for interpretations is 60/40, or even 72/25, that proficiency may not be good enough to be convincing. I do argue and believe that most all dreams can be interpreted. I point to my record of interpretations here at the Dream forum as evidence. I can't remember the last time I had a response where the interpretation was thought to be totally outside a good possibility. I have had posts where further explanations are needed, and sometimes with added information provided by the dreamer a deeper look at a dream is warranted, but in the end the dreamer usually recognizes the associations in the interpretation to their waking life. Most often my original interpretation is enough for the dreamer to recognize waking life associations.

    Uncovering through an interpretation experiences in a dream that parallel actual waking life experiences is how a dream is verified as being correct. Does it fit with the dreamer's waking life experiences {past and/or present}? Of course the more I know about the dreamer the more likely I will able to discern patterns in a dream. But seldom do I have that info, which I believe gives support to just how well Jung got it right in his theories of dreams and the psyche {I only ask for the age, gender and location of the dreamer from the outset}. No matter how intuitive a person is {an evolutionary sensory function that is most important when interpreting dreams}, without the years of research by Jung we would still be 'guessing' what dreams are about, and what they mean. All dreams have meaning, more than one to be exact. Uncovering meaning through interpretations is discovering something within the dreamer's unconscious that needs to be revealed. And because dreams ARE about the emotions, giving thought to the possible meaning{s} and discovering the realities is how a person starts the healing process in resolving emotional conflicts that are often unconscious controlling agents in the dreamers' waking life. This process is a 'natural' and prime function of dreams.
