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.

    Why would I dream this?

    To fully understand this dream you need to know that in reality i know a boy (who for this i'll call 'dan') who i have spoken to a couple of times in school but thats it.
    I was backstage somewhere but i had no idea where or why, I presumed i was just there to watch. Then 'dan' cam over to me and handed me my dog (who actually exists). I took her and looked at 'dan'. When he didn't say anything i aksed him what he wanted me to do and he simply replied 'go and do the show'. It was then i realised i was at a dog show and he wanted me to perform with my dog. I told him i couldn't and he said i was just nervous and he hadn't gone through all the training for nothing. i couldn't remeber any training but before i could tell him he pushed me out onto the stage and everyone in the audience fell silent and looked at me. I had no idea what to do and i could see the panic beginning to show on my friends faces who were in the front row. then to make matters worse my dog just walked off and wouldn't listen to anything i said. Some people were laughing so i grabbed my dog and ran backstage where i faced 'dan' shouting, swearing and telling me i was useless and pointless. I remeber feeling crushed and so hurt that he was shouting at me like this. He refused to listen when i told him i didn't remeber doing any training and before i woke up it was his brother (who also actually exists) who stuck up for me and told 'dan' to take it easy and stop blaming me'.
    Why would i dream this and what does it mean please?

    Re: Why would I dream this?

    Flo,
    If you examine your impressions of 'dan' you will probably recognize aspects about him that you either admire or dislike. Something that leaves an impression. That may be the reason he is in your dream. I am guessing it is opposite of who you are. The dog would represent some aspect of your psyche, perhaps your human/animal nature. The aspect that is different may involve personality. Is his personality different from yours. One being say an introvert, the other an extrovert?

    The dog show. Perhaps this is your personality on display {there is a stage, suggesting a play?, and an audience in the dream}.
    Note: This is what dreams are. Plays, displays of your life. Very often in a dream you are the actor, the director and the aduience.

    It may be you are not 'trained' for this kind of attention. Or it may be you seek this kind of attention. It could hing on your personality type. If so the 'dan' in your dream would become/represent a part of you, requesting something out of you that you are not sure you possess. Or are 'trained' for. Your inner masculine self may be weak or undeveloped thus this part of you is not prepared for this request [upon yourself}.
    In other words you are asking/expecting/wishing yourself to be 'trained' in some aspect that you perceive 'dan' to possess. If it is a negative aspect then you definitely would not be trained or prepared to be like him, naturally.

    Since this is not you naturally, the 'dog' aspect walks off the stage. You have no control over those things that you are 'naturally' {as in an extrovert or introvert}. You wouldn't feel comfortable trying to be like that. There are expectations that you can not live up to. Deep down you may feel 'crushed' over this. But reality superceeds unrealistic expectations. 'dan' may be someone who would not understand this. But an improved, older brother would {your wisdom}.

    So what is it about real life 'dan' that left such an impression? Is dan attractive, appealing, outgoing, sexy? Someone who may expect a 'trained' personality to live up to his expectations?
    Let me know the answers to my questions and I believe we will be able to narrow the real possibilities to this dream message.

    Re: Why would I dream this?

    Incredibly, from my short description of my dream, your basically spot on. I am a very shy person and while i can handle myself around people i don't know, i'd rather be with my close friends (so i guess i'm introvert). However 'dan' is more of an 'extrovert', regularly getting up on stage with his band but like me he's akward around new people too.
    As for your question 'is he attractive, sexy?' all i'll say is 'yes'. I've quite fancied him for about a year, so any qualities i've noticed i'll admire them rather than despising them.
    Hope this helps you
    Thanks for replying

    Re: Why would I dream this?

    Flo,
    I received some strong vibes about 'your fancying' the boy you only spoken to a couple of times. And add to that the fact you insisted on calling him 'dan' with a small d. That 'clue' gave me the impression there was more than just a passing interest. Perhaps you need to speak to him more often. But be sure to use his real name.

    Good luck with that.

    Hi Flo,

    I get the same feeling as Gerard. Two words came into my conscious that aptly describes the situation "Performance Anxiety". It's something that Dan obviously doesn't have with his persona (who knows what's going on inside). This rings true with what Gerard said about being trained with something, but the actual carrying out of the task is difficult for you. Just like how you train a dog to do something. My dog will follow commands, that is unless it has an overpowering distraction. The only thing that will solve it is 'focus'.

    Re: Why would I dream this?

    I'm kinda worried about my dream last night it was nothing serious but it scared me. I was in my bed room and i was putting my make-up on in the mirror suddenly blood was streaming down my cheeks from my right eye. I left to go to school and while i was there i was worried it would bleed again.
    Do you know why I would dream this? I've never had an injury to my eye before?
    -Thank you

    Re: Why would I dream this?

    Blood symbolize our strengths and weaknesses and our physical and mental health. If you are currently experiencing a very difficult time in your life, you may have dreams with bloody and frightening images.
    Some say that the eyes are the windows for the soul. Eyes symbolize perceptiveness, personal outlook, clairvoyance, curiosity, and knowledge. They also reveal information about personal identity and suggest to what you should pay attention to.

    What does the blood represents to you? What is it that you don't want anyone to see, that your trying to cover?

    oh next time post your dream in a new blog goodluck!
