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 Analyzed/Interpreted by Gerald: Jesus

    I dreamt I was walking up the path to a house. I was lost. I went in the house and it was large and empty. I opened the door to a room and saw a large table in there with a chair either side. There was a man sitting on one side of the table(facing me) with his head covered with a hood. The material was like sacking material. I couldn't see his face so I went to sit down opposite him. I asked him where I was because I was lost. He looked up and removed the hood and I looked into the most beautiful brown eyes I had ever seen. He was so gentle that I could feel it in my heart. He smiled and I felt so much love come from him that my soul hurt. He said "you are not lost" and he reached out to take my hands. His hands were soft and his fingers were long. I felt as if I would be safe forever just remembering this moment. Then I woke up. For months afterwards, that contented happy feeling (which was a physical feeling) stayed in my chest.

    The Interpretation

    The house is you. The path you are walking is the path of finding what is really inside yourself, your true identity. You probably have feelings of being 'empty' in your current situation.

    Opening the door is to open up to what is inside you. The table with chairs on either side may indicate a need for balance in your life. The man sitting at the table is probably your masculine self {see anima/animus at left}. This part of you is covered, not seen or known, or utilized. It is opposite of who you are and without this part you are feel lost.

    I would guess that you have brown eyes. Or have a thing for brown eyes.

    Are you in a relationship, and if so is it the one you wish you could have? The dream is probably speaking to both the need for a balance within yourself, masculine qualities to go with your feminine qualities, and perhaps a desire for that balancing relationship with a male. Your titled your dream Jesus. That may indicate the need for a balance within, an unconscious idea that penetrates through the dream even though he {Jesus} is not in your dream. If you find Jesus { not in a religious way but as a perfect masculine match} you will have that balance you wish for in your life. These types of emotions can be very strong, contemplating the possibility of finding that part of you that has left an empty feeling.

    There may also be that spiritual element involved in your dream and your title about Jesus. Jung, a scientist, said that we all have a spiritual aspect, and when we discover that aspect we begin to bring balance into our life. But do not mistake spiritual for religion. Religion relies more on faith and the spiritual {WWJD} is pure deeds. Faith without the deeds brings about as much bad in your life as if you had none. By being spiritual in the way of Jesus you are following the natural laws of nature where good produces good, bad produces bad. In simple words, 'what goes around, comes around'.

    Response to Interpretation
    Dear Gerard,

    I think you have given a wonderful interpretation to my dream. Yes! I do have brown eyes and Yes I do have a thing about men with brown eyes. My father had brown eyes and I think that is the reason. I called the dream Jesus because I was aware in the dream that it was someone very holy, probably Jesus. You are also right what you said about the house being me. I am very spiritual and I having been thinking a lot lately about God, religion etc. I have never had a very loving relationship with my father. He has never been able to get that close. As well as this other person symbolizing masculine traits I might wish for, do you think he could be the father I was longing for too?

    Thanks for your interpretation. I will reflect on it and be in touch shortly. God bless
