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.

    Riding

    In this dream I'm with my boyfriend and some of his friends. They are going to have a skating contest and, just for fun they want me to open it by doing a few simple tricks. I'm up for it, and think to myself that it's going to be fun.

    Then there are suddenly some girls there who are also going to participate. They are proffesional skaters and one of them sends a skateboard towards me. The board has a strange shape, almost like a dog, and it looks as it's alive. It rolls really fast and as I run after it to try to catch it I realize that I don't know how to sakte at all, and I feel really stupid not beeing able to catch it.
    I feel the girls watching me and laughing at me.

    Instead of beeing an opening act, it's decided that I'm going to be the last number, and instead of a skateboard I'm given a dress by an elderly woman. I'm now with her outside in a hall, and the skaters practice behind some curtains in the hall where the show is going to be. I discover that the dress has a button on it, and whaen I press it the dress transforms into a small horse, like a palyhorse but just big enough so that I can ride it.

    The woman (ho has a resemblence to the author who created Pippi) is some sort of trianer, and I go up and down the hall riding this strange horse made out of fabric and electronics. I feel much more comfretable of the idea of performing on the horse, and I somehow already know how to manage the different commands. I feel very proud in myself, and I'm confident that I'll make a good impression, and surley no one has seen this before!

    When the show is reaching its end and it's soon my turn I stand behind the curtains with my trainer and I press the button again so it transforms back into a dress. But when try to push it again, it won't become a horse. I realize that the batteries are empty, and
    that I can't perform afer all. I feel a bit disappointed, cause I really would want them all to see me doing something I am good at, and maybe no one else can do. I wish I hadn't pressed that last time, cause then it would still be a horse and I could do my show.

    If you have seen the film The Science of Sleep, the horse looks very much like the palyhorse in the film, Golden the Pony Boy, only bigger. If you have not seen this film, I really recomend it. It's really beautiful and all about dreams.

    Inanna,
    I took a different approach in my interpretation to this dream. Be low is a breakdown of my thoughts to each paragraph from your dream {5 paragraphs}. I'll let you piece it together and see if it fits.

    1} gliding along on your own using your masculine energy

    2}experienced feminine aspects manifest in waking life which may be controlling waking actions

    3}Covered by wisdom. Going into the unconscious, returning to infantile state

    4}The infantile state {childhood {like} impressions} which you are comfortable with

    5}Possessed emotions that you wish to share with others.

    Gerard,
    I appologize for the very late response. I've been caught up in a bad swirl for a while, not beeing able to see things clearly, and I've really been an easy prey for my fears. And they draw all the energy out of me when I don't manage to fight them.
    I'm not sure if I got it right, but it seems to me that the "acting like a child" comment was right on the spot. I feel like I lost contact with my newfound masculine energy and practically regressed to an earlier stage which was dominated by this desperate inner child seeking protection and seeing monsters everywhere.

    I just wonder what you did mean by "covered by wisdom"? I'm not sure if you are talking about this "going into unconciousness" as a positive thing that needs to be done, or a negative thing that I should try to avoid?

    Thank you,
    Inanna

    Re: Riding

    Inanna,
    It is always a positive thing to go 'inside' although at first it may be frightening to do so. Revealing those true inner emotions and aspects to your being is a 'cleansing' that must be undertaken to find balance and harmony in life. The elderly woman giving you the dress {persona} is the wisdom you will discover when you do go 'inward'. Within lies the true self, absent of ego control, ready to manifest itself into waking conscious that provides nourishment for the spirit and body. You may think you have to prove yourself on the outside, but the 'inside' needs only acknowledgement and acceptance.

    Your dreams seem to be relating back to childhood issues that as we discussed have become once again prevalent in later years {reverting back to childhood vulnerabilities}. Discovering what those early issues were in childhood may help you overcome the need to revert back to them in the present. What is out of balance in life is what dreams try to address, seeking to balance the unbalanced aspects of your psyche. What are the 'monsters' that you need protection from? Look back and re-discover the past so you can understand the present.
