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: forced incest

    My sense of your dream it is focused on developed negative attitudes about relationships you formed from witnessing/experiencing what you learned between your parents {mother and father}. It also points to new attitudes, either developing or a need to be develop because of your interest in your former coworker Amanda.
    Look at the relationship between your parents. Your father could represent the 'authority' that controls your developed attitudes toward women and relationships. Did he have negative attitudes toward your mother?

    Here is my interpretation of the dream images, actions and symbols {my usual method of analyzing the whole dream}.

    Forced Incest
    -negative emotions between feminine and masculine aspects within yourself

    My father forced me to have sex with my mother
    -father forced me-the power {authority} to force/release negative emotions {possibly related to your father}
    -have sex with mother {incest}-uniting self with feminine qualities/real mother

    Soon afterwards, she gave birth to a rather ugly baby named Franklin Templeton (like the investment firm)
    -soon afterwards-later in life
    -she gave birth to a rather ugly baby-experiences that produced negative attitudes that need to end
    -named Franklin Templeton (like the investment firm)-struggle to overcome emotional imbalance that created the groundwork for your adult life

    Note: The investment firm Franklin Templeton, which has closed down hurting investors, would represent emotions that left a bad attitude toward your future growth {emotional instead of financial}

    But I was glad that it was her I got pregnant and not a young woman about my age named Amanda (a former coworker) who in real life I'm very attracted to and who probably has feelings for me as well.
    -But I was glad that it was her I got pregnant-positive beginning to old attitudes/emotions
    -a young woman about my age named Amanda (a former coworker)-balancing of old attitudes

    Something to consider that may or may not fit. The incest in your dream may represent emotional incest.

    Emotional incest is not sexual. Instead, this type of unhealthy emotional interaction blurs the boundaries between adult and child in a way that is psychologically inappropriate. When a parent looks to their child for emotional support or treats them more like a partner than a child, it is considered emotional or “covert” incest. The outcome of this family structure often produces similar results — on a lesser scale — as sexual incest.

    Let me know your thoughts and I may be able to expand on my analysis.
