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: Beautiful house/ new friend

    Dreams use primarily symbolic/metaphorical language but there could be literal applications as well. Not knowing you personally and without personal info I can not offer the literal applications, only the symbolic apps that point to your inner self. If there are literal applications where you have met a man then it would be someone you hold in high esteem and someone who would be compatible with who you are. Or, it could point to someone you wish you could meet with these qualities.

    Metaphorically, and what I see as the primary message of the dream is you have discovered new aspects within yourself or your life that would be very beneficial and is a natural fit with your personality and personal attitudes {it could be addressing both possibilities if there is an actual male involved}. What new things or possibilities are there in your life recently? Whatever it is there is great possibilities for personal growth personal gains/rewards.

    Here is my interpretation of the images and actions in your dream. Keep in mind the dream is about YOU and specifically your emotions. The house is you and the new friend indicates something positive.

    Note: I do request a follow up response. My services are free but I do ask for feedback so to learn more about dreams.

    Beautiful house/new friend
    -the house is you/aspects of yourself that you admire and appreciate
    -new friend-positive aspect/developing new strengths

    I met someone (a celebrity, I believe), and he showed me around his house
    -met someone-connecting with an unknown/neglected/rejected part of yourself
    -(a celebrity, I believe)-higher aspirations in life you believe in/wish for
    -he showed me around his house-having strength in searching within yourself

    In the dream, it wasn't as if "Oh, I'm with a big star."
    -natural aspect in hour evolution

    It was more just the sense that it was someone I knew of, but hadn't met before, and the male presence
    -characteristics you possess that include masculine qualities {strength, competitiveness, rational, assertive}. The male presence may indicate a strong inclination for this self characteristic

    It was a very beautiful house, and I was amazed
    -very positive aspect that deeply affects your life

    It had large rooms that were done very elegantly, but also with a sense of warmth and beauty
    -it had large rooms-room for personality growth
    -done elegantly but also with a sense of warmth and beauty-something that appeals to you consciously that is natural aspect you posses {a skill or talent}
    Someone else that was there made a comment to the effect that the other houses in the neighborhood weren't as nice
    -a superior aspect that will sets you apart

    There was even an indoor garden
    -great potential for personal growth

    He left for a bit, and I was there, I think with his wife
    -a masculine aspect that fits with your feminine qualities you have not utilized

    We hit it off really well, and found that we had some things in common
    -inner qualities that balance your personality

    When he came back with a friend, I remember thinking he'd probably be happy that we were getting along so well
    -positive masculine aspects that are capable to your personality

    Overall, the feel of the dream was very positive
    -positive emotions reflecting positive qualities

    Re: Beautiful house/ new friend

    Thanks so much for your input Jerry, and the detail! I actually just started a new job last week. So it could be me contemplating the possibilities/ opportunities with that. The part about the house representing aspects of myself was helpful. And yes, maybe needing to integrate different aspects or qualities of myself for the job.
    Again, I appreciate your thoughts. You gave me a lot to think about.

    I appreciate the response.

    Yes, I can see where the new job fits with the dream images. Positive attitude, a need to utilize your masculine qualities and personal growth. This would reflect your current emotional self. Now look to your foundations as a child and see if any of the interpreted images fit with those experiences. Positive masculine aspects related to men as a child, being a big star to someone {other than yourself}, etc. Since the dream is full of positive descriptions that would be reflected in childhood. Either one where there was a strong positive environment of one lacking that and a need to overcome those issues.
