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.

    Re: Fainting

    I'll analyze the dream Sunday. Until then you can read Concepts For Analyzing Dreams to get a better understanding on how I analyze dreams {primarily using Jungian psyche}.

    Likely the person who faints is you or associated with you which would again be an aspect of yourself. You kissing them would be an action performed on yourself {or a need to do so}. All the actions would be self actions. That is how dreams function. Your dreams are addressing your emotional energies.

    Re: Fainting

    First I will ask for a response to my analysis. My work is free but I do ask for a reply with some detail to your thoughts. Does the analysis fit? Your response with added info may help with further analysis of the dream.

    Basically the dream is focusing on your need for emotional nourishment which was lacking from early life. I get the impression there is someone you are in a relationship with or may form a relationship you feel will fulfill the void of emotional nourishment. But you may not trust your own feelings/judgement or have doubts. The doubts may be real or false but because of the lack of early life emotional nourishment you question the relationship, the person in the relationship. I also get the impression these doubts will remain until you discovery the underlying reasons for your doubts or/and if the person is genuine.

    Here is my interpretation of the images and actions in your dream from which I form my analysis of the whole dream.

    fainting-inability to confront some subconscious issues or feelings. You need to be more aware and acknowledge those feelings

    -you kiss them-needing affection
    -kiss brings them back-recovering by receiving needed affection
    -but they still lie there waiting for some other action to take place before they arise-not fulfilling your emotional needs
    -so someone else comes along and maybe puts food to their lips-someone other than yourself providing emotional nourishment by communicating their affection
    -that person didn't observe that you kissed this person-

    A possibility of what this means is
    Your desire for, or believing you have met someone who will provide missing emotional nourishment.

    -Agenda-your scheduled psychological plans
    -appear to give credit-acknowledging your perception of your emotional condition
    -skin complexion changes to lighter skin tone-lowering your expectations
    -embracing and hugging that person making THEM FEEL AND BELIEVE-making yourself believe and feel something is real/true

    This part seems to be stating you are consciously looking for someone or something to provide you with emotional nourishment. But you re not aware of the unconscious motivations or are ignoring them if they are known {missing emotional nourishment usually comes from childhood}. You may be to the point you are willing to engage into a relationship you are not sure of as the best for you {lowering your expectations and getting into a relationship despite the person not being who you really desire or suspect may not meet your emotional needs}.

    -make them feel or believe-making yourself believe in something that affects you emotionally
    -due to acting-putting up a front and pretending to be someone you are not in some waking situation

    This may be stating you are making yourself believe a person or thing will help solve your emotional needs. You are pretending {to yourself} this person or thing is right for you.

    -that they did a good deed by putting the food to their lips to "revive"-accommodating needed emotional nourishment

    Re: Fainting

    Thank you kindly, this helps ..dream seems to coincide with something's that have happened in my waking life already but I'm still kind of lost but your analysis is certainly beneficial in helping me to understand deeper!

    Re: Fainting

    What you are lost on is understandable since it is dealing with issues not current in your life {dealing with early life foundations}. If you wish to share what the experiences you do relate to in my analysis I may be able to offer more insights why you had the dream.
