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: Dream

    I'm responding to your last post with a final analysis on this threat so I can readily consult my interpretation of the images and actions from your dream post.. I'm curious about your PDD {neurological} disorder in how it fits with my analysis since a normal interpretation doesn't usually encounter your condition. After some research to become familiar with the disorder becoming aware it is a neurodevelopmental disorder which is mental condition that affects the body's 'wiring system'. Not surprising for me because dreams are psychological/emotional energies and they can offer information about physical aspects as well {a burning house could represent a high fever as an example}. Neurology is a field very closely related to psychology so it would not be unusual for your dreams to address your PPD since the psyche is about the whole self beyond just the emotional energies that affect, influence or control the conscious life.

    Summary of Dream With Added Info About PDD
    I think the dream is, on one level, addressing a natural exploration of your life because of your PDD. I do not know the level of PDD you have {Pervasive developmental disorder so I am a bit blind to the possibilities as it relates to the dream.

    Here are my added comments {in red} with the knowledge of your PDD. Let me know your thoughts and perhaps we can ascertain more about the dream from your response.

    On another level it may also be addressing your study of Jungian psychology and the unconscious. Many of the image s and actions fit with this conclusion {on my part}. Your PDD may cause a natural observation of yourself beyond what a person not having the disorder but because dreams address current emotional energies I can see the associations. Both aspects would be what the last part of the dream is focused on. Not having real clarity to your emotional and psyche {whole} self.

    -I was in a field-in contact with innermost self
    You have stated you have taken an interest in Jungian psychology and his ideas on the unconscious. This could be addressing that. But it could also be focusing on your PDD. There is evidence that people with conditions similar to PDD have an introspective personality. It may also b saying something about an introvert personality
    -was observing rather than being the subject-seeing your true self
    observing often refers to unconscious observation of yourself. The study of the unconscious is observing yourself objectively and not emotionally {of the conscious ego self}. You are the object of the observation and not the subject under control of the conscious self. Again the PDD may be relative.

    -there were two others-conflicting emotions
    The conflicting emotions is a symbolic interpretation {two represents opposites}. It may be addressing two other aspects of yourself.
    -a character from a show/Sam-focusing on detached/isolated masculine aspect
    Sam may have personal associations which only you would know of. The ‘masculine’ character of a show would represent you showcasing your true self. Being one of two it may be a comment on the ego appearance vs the unconscious self
    -and a young girl-developing emotional aspects
    Being young would represent being in early development. Being a girl is focusing on emotional aspects, the sensitive aspects. It may also represent an early development of understanding of yourself {Jungian psychology}

    -The young girl was walking then stopped-failure in development of emotional understanding/declining personal growth
    Something is in the way of the early development. You may be able to determine what by examining your life prior to the dream
    - Sam asked what she saw-masculine self seeking emotional understanding
    With all instances people in a dream the figure of Sam would represent you {as well as what you associate with in the real person Sam}. You are seeking emotional understanding of yourself. What are you seeing or will see by studying the unconscious {the she represents the unconscious self}?
    Note: Because I do not have much personal info about you I am limited to providing an outline of the emotional energies and not personal associations

    -Without saying I saw what she saw-no communicating unconscious aspects to consciousness
    a blockage or not understanding what you are learning. This may be related to PDD or/and some other reason
    -a young boy running through the field then out of sight-repressed emotional aspects from boyhood
    fields refer to nature, your human nature. The boy is you. Instead of repressed the proper word may be depressed aspects due to PDD.

    -The girl then looked elsewhere-not in touch with emotions
    I revise this to looking elsewhere other than the conscious self. The study of Jung and the unconscious is the ‘elsewhere’, the study of the unconscious, yourself
    -with certain dread on Sam's face he asked her what else she saw-masculine ego seeking truth
    What else besides what you know/understand is there that you do not know/understand? Something about yourself related to the ego persona {face}. Consciously you may not know/understand but the unconscious does know
    -as if he knew that it was something awful-conscious repressing negative experiences
    as if implies you do know {consciously aware}. The something awful would indicate negative aspects

    -I then saw what she saw-coming to terms with emotional energies
    Delving into the unconscious you see your true self. I equate the feminine aspects with the unconscious, the feminine representing the controlling emotions within the unconscious
    -a tree that was completely black-negative personal growth
    the tree is you. Black can represent negative aspects as well as the unconscious mind
    -burnt out as well as the area around it-intense emotional energies affecting people {and your whole self} around you
    the full extent of your being area} is experiencing intense emotions/emotional energies. This is a norm when investigating the unconscious

    -Hanging off the tree was a a burnt corpse-repressed emotional energies that need conscious expression
    choking off personal growth that needs expression via conscious understanding. A burnt corpse represents a part of you that is dead associated with intense emotional aspects.
    -with a noose-repressed negative emotions and possibly including anger
    feeling restricted and restrained from being able to express yourself. Any anger would likely represent with yourself {possibly related to PDD}.

    -I woke before I could get see more clearly-unable to recognize unconscious energies
    even this is not a part of the dream I always see comments upon waking as relative to the dream. It is still an unconscious expression. Not seeing clearly {emotional energies} is one reason why you are having this dream

    Re: Dream

    I working on a reply to your response. I'm curious about your PDD {neurological} disorder in how it fits with my analysis since a normal interpretation doesn't usually encounter your condition. After some research to become familiar with the disorder I am now aware that it is a neurodevelopmental disorder {which is mental condition that affects the body's 'wiring system'}. Neurology and psychology go hand in hand and anything 'mental' has psychological implications. Not surprising for me because dreams are about emotional energies and they can offer information about the total/whole self as well including the physical which contains the nervous system {a burning house could represent a high fever as an example}. Neurology is a field very closely related to psychology so it would not be unusual for your dreams to address your PPD since the psyche is about the whole self beyond just the emotional energies that affect, influence or control the conscious life. I will go back over my analysis and see how it all fits into the equation of the dream message. At first glance I can see by just changing a few words with related terms will fit with your PDD. It is the final message that is important and hopefully I will be able to provide that upon further analysis.

    Re: Dream


    Thank you very much so far for your efforts. Already it's given me a lot to think about and reflect to situation at the time. I've had a lot of disturbing dreams, as well as generally complex ones that have been hard to interpret (I've somewhat kept a journal over the years) but this was the one that disturbed me the most, and didn't have an idea on how to interpret it.

    "I'm curious about your PDD {neurological} disorder in how it fits with my analysis since a normal interpretation doesn't usually encounter your condition." Would you care to elaborate on this point? It's quite an interesting point.

    Thank you again and looking forward to reading the final analysis!

    Thank you
