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.

    Two Recurring Dreams.

    For several years, I had two dreams I kept having.
    In the first one, I would be in this big house, it wasn't always the same house to look at, but it was the same place in my dream. I'd be wandering about going from room to room, (there were lots of rooms!) and I'd get to a part that I didn't like the feel of. Also in the house, there was always a door that was locked. I never knew what was behind the door, but I sensed it was sinister. When I was doing Psychology at college my teacher said I had a secret locked away, but didn't elaborate on it.

    In my second recurring dream, it was about a lift (elevator). I would step inside it, then it would just drop down really fast. I had to hold on to the rails, it was so fast. I always woke up before it hit the bottom. The last time I had that dream, other people were waiting to get in the lift but for some reason, I didn't get in that time. I stood outside as the doors closed then I heard the familiar "whoosh" of it hurtling to the bottom, but this time I heard it smash at the bottom. What stopped me getting in it the only time it crashed before I woke up?

    Thank you in advance

    Re: Two Recurring Dreams.

    Jude,
    I apologize for not interpreting your dream. I completely overlooked it. I have plenty of excuses but I shouldn't need excuses.

    In the first dream there seems to be something within your psyche that is being repressed. The house is you, the rooms different parts, aspects, complexes of the psyche. The locked room is something that is being locked away, hidden away within the unconscious, repressed. The sinister secret is some past emotional experience, perhaps a physical experience.
    Have you explored what that might be?

    The second dream suggests you may be about to crash, the 'lift' {emotional denial} that has threatened to fall is about to do so. It may be a matter of time.

    Dreams don't often predict future events but this last dream seems to come as close to being one as I've seen. Along with your other dream post Boat Crashing/Sinking, my impression is you are under a lot of stress and may need counseling. The 'cracked his head' from that dream may be a reference to your psyche.

    Are you under a lot of psychological distress? Are you currently receiving counseling by a trained therapist? These last two dreams are exposing something deep and perhaps dangerous. That is my impression. I hope you respond to this post so we can determine if there is merit to my fears.

    Re: Two Recurring Dreams.

    Jude sent me a private e-mail confirming my suspicions about her dreams. There is a lot of repressed emotions due to childhood and early adult trauma which has been repressed. There is indeed an urgency for her to confront these deep conflicting emotions and she realizes the situation. She does intend to seek counseling to help her through this difficult situation and to help her in her desire to be a 'normal person' once again {a normal life someone without the repressed conflicts}.
