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.

    Semi-Truck death

    Alright, so this is a dream I had a couple of weeks ago.

    It starts off with me walking down a deserted highway, and there's a full moon in the sky and not a cloud in sight. As I keep walking more cars start showing up. At first they are run-down, junk cars then they start getting nicer and nicer until it was just cars like Ferrari's and Mercedes on the road. It seems like I walk for hours, but don't get tired at all.

    I then see another woman walking along the road in front of me. She has long, black hair but that's the only thing about her I can remember. It's at this point in time I see a semi-truck coming down the road.

    When the semi-truck got to a point that it couldn't stop the woman jumped out in front of it and died. I then woke up.

    Re: Semi-Truck death

    Hannah,
    This dream has a positive note to it but is still reflecting on the negatives from your past. There is progression and that may be because you have taken steps to improve your situation {moving away from your mother}. Unconsciously {your true self knows} if not consciously you know you need to find ways to change the old habits and attitudes and create new ones and a new life. I see progress from this dream. Here is my analysis along with the symbolic meaning of the images and actions.

    Your deposition in life is one of emptiness and decline {walking down} but you possess a positive attitude things will improve {clear sky}. There is a desire for better things {full moon which symbolizes emotional wholeness} despite the deteriorating conditions in which you have grown up. You see better things for your future {in sight}. Your life has progressed {walking} but there are long lasting unconscious attitudes{woman with long black hair- shadow symbol} that influence your thinking {unconscious motivators}. These various attitudes {cars} cause you to be burdened with negative emotions and attitudes {run down cars/semi truck}. You need to learn to discard these old attitudes to in order to be able to obtain proper personal growth {nicer cars}. You have gotten to a point {semi truck getting to a point} in life where you must face your shadow {woman jumping in front} make changes and seek new direction/new attitudes {died}.
    Note-death most always represents an end to one aspect and beginning of new aspects. A psychological death and resurrection.
    End of analysis

    If you continue to work toward improving your life and are able to create new attitudes you will likely have a dream{s} with archetypal images. These type dreams suggest a real break through has taken place. But you need to continue working to obtain a better life. Being Wiccan I suggest you look to the positive aspects this spiritual concept offers. But I also suggest you do not get too involved since there is a danger this positive nature based spirituality will lead you away from the psychological aspects that are at the core of the issues that need to be addressed. Metaphysics {spirituality} are important in achieving a balanced life, one of emotional wholeness, but objectivity is as important. Staying focused on the root causes and resolving the psychological aspects is the path to true wholeness and happiness. If the underlying conditions are not resolved your life will still be influenced by the negatives from your past. There needs to be a true and complete death of the old and a rebirth to the new.

    Re: Semi-Truck death

    Things have been changing for me, a new job being the main one. I've decided to stop focusing on trying to find someone to be partnered with (a boyfriend/girlfriend), and focus more on bettering myself.

    I don't exactly practice Wicca. I know some of the rules, have most of the Rede memorized, but it's not a huge part of my life. It just shapes some of my core values I guess you could say, and some of the ways that I think.

    If you'd like I can keep posting dreams to keep you updated. :)

    Re: Semi-Truck death

    Hannah,
    The dream reflects the progress you are making {new job, bettering yourself}. There are the old issues {deserted highway} but with new hope and being complete {full moon}. The cars are aspects of yourself. Some are run down {from your past} but they start getting nicer {the improvements in your life}. You are looking/seeking for even grander things {Ferrari's and Mercedes} and you know that will take a lot of effort {I walk for hours}. Your positive attitude is reflected in "but don't get tired at all".

    The black haired woman could point to shadow issues {as I noted in my analysis}. What color hair does your mother have? Because you do have issues with her there may be aspects about that relationship {repressed aspects she possesses either you also possess or fear of possessing-being like her}. That could apply even if your mother doesn't have black hair but if she does the qualities I mentioned may be an issue. Otherwise the shadow image would point to the weakness of the relationship with her. That issues remains a part of who you are {in front of you}. The semi truck could represent the heavy load to do with that relationship as well as other issues you carry with you from your past.

    Overall it is a positive dream but with the caveat you still have the past issues you are emotionally carrying with you. The dream is pointing to a need to work on those issues because if you don't the influences of those experiences will go with you the rest of your life {like a shadow} and influence how you feel and think. These are psychological issues which will be much more harder to work through. But it is essential you do.

    Post another recent dream to see what else may be going on in your emotional life you may or may not be aware of.
