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.

    drink induced nightmare

    Just woke from a vivid nightmare after a week end-of-exam partying and boozing.

    Swansea had turned into a slum town, similar to the aesthetics from The Warriors(film). At night, like sunlight doesn't exist anymore, and it is just perpetual darkness.

    I was riding a smashed-up 125 motorcycle through one of the city's backstreets, until i ended up in cul-de-sac where about 5 girls sitting on the wall, all looking pale and ill. Lit by street lamps.
    One of the girls complained to me about her mothers heavy drinking and brought out a bottle of vodka, asking me to dispose of it. To which i refused, saying it was up to her mother if she drinks or not.

    When I set off to leave, there was a gang of about 7 or 8 sitting or leaning in the doorway of an adjacent dilapidated house. Thinking they would never outrun the motorcycle I decided to spit in their direction and take off, only the bike wouldn't start. In a frenzy I had to kick-start the bike, and it would only crawl along at 10 - 15 miles an hour.
    Only the oldest member of the gang decided to chase me , and for a while he chased behind me as the bike struggled to climb a steep street. I turned a corner and jumped off, after the engine had died. I ran on foot for a while untill ending up back where i started, with the motorcycle strewn on the ground looking sorry for itself.
    A cheap plastic bike lock appeared near the 125 as the thug began to turn the corner, and I used it as weapon trying to lash him in the face with it. This went on for a while but eventually i caught him in the nose, and continued to inflict blows to his head until he fell down.
    Then I woke up and found this forum, before another dream became lost in the subconsious.

    Re: drink induced nightmare

    The first thing I did was to 'Google' Swansea and discovered it is a university. The opening of a dream usually presents the dreamer in a certain form which points to some aspect of the psyche. Swansea would represent you, a learning aspect about yourself, as well as the university you are attending. Such is the way of dreams.

    What is it this dream is trying o 'teach' you? That parts of you have turned into 'slum town' {the town is you}? Unconsciously you may not realize this, and it is an ongoing thing {At night, like sunlight doesn't exist anymore, and it is just perpetual}.

    The 'smashed-up' motorcycle, again a description of yourself. The numbers may be clues. 125 equals 8 which in my mind represents wholeness of body and spirit. The number 5 represents 'change', perhaps a need to change certain aspects about yourself so to achieve the '125'. The girls looking pale and ill, would represent feminine aspects, and may also be referring to how waking life girls appeared during your night of 'partying and boozing'. The feminine aspects would suggest your masculine attitude {drinking and partying} are not as healthy as they should be {refraining from such activities}. The cul-de-sac may suggest you are at a 'dead end' when engaging in such activities.
    Not only are you inducing your inherent masculine traits to suffer but also doing the same to the wise feminine aspects as well {mothers heavy drinking}. all of this points to a destructive nature that may be out of control.

    The dilapidated adjacent house, another description of another aspect of your psyche {this one being the inherent masculine}. The gang of 7 or 8 {equals 6 which is symbolic of the physical body}. This part of you is trying to outrun the 'party boy' who is losing his grip if not his good health. The best you can do in this situation {drinking} is to crawl. Psyche wise and health wise you are also at a 'crawl'.

    The fight, the inflicted wounds, this is what you are doing to yourself. Inner conflicts and psychological wounds {if not physical wounds}. The dream is not only pointing to the affects of a night of boozing but the permanent dangers of what this type activity is doing to you in the long term. Your own self is affected by these activities.

    The dream seems to be a warning. Pay attention, you may learn something about yourself.

    Re: drink induced nightmare

    thank you. I can relate to a lot of what you said. I have taken your advice into account

    When I was in school all the dreams I had which involved confrontation were one-way; in which I mean I could never fight back. Like I was underwater, unable to move properly. Or like I were holding weights, unable to move my arms.

    In the dreams I have now (which involve confrontation), I am able to defend myself, which is reassuring at first but I then carry on beyond the point self-defense, often killing the attacker. Which leaves a mixture of satisfaction and then guilt as the nightmare comes to an end.

    (although id like to point out that I am not at all aggressive or violent in real life.
