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.

    Wheels within wheels

    I've had two dreams recently about wheels. A few days ago I dream my husband and I are driving in a car. He's driving. We hit a curb and the front passenger rim is bent and the tire is flattened.

    The second dream I had last night and is a little more complex. I am riding a bike and it has an unusual tire on the back. It has the regular tire, but also an inner tire (not the innertube of a normal tire) that sits within the first wheel. Somehow it's how the tires are supposed to work, so that if the first one goes flat, the second one can simply be ready to take its place.

    In the dream I've stopped--sort of like in a pit stop--to get some help because my inner tire has gone flat. We talk about it and I say, "Well, I guess it's not really essential because the main tire is ok." However, in truth, that tire was completely flat. I pressed my hand on it to check the pressure and there was none, and it was plain to see it was flat when I sat back on the bike seat. But I'm plainly in denial about this state of deflation!

    Re: Wheels within wheels

    If this were a dream of someone in their 20s I would be asking what part is being controlled by the husband. But being at that mid-life stage {welcome to our world} I would think the dream husband could be related to your waking husband but the there is also a focus is on the inner masculine. The wheels and tires may represent 'cycles' or phases you are currently experiencing and some aspect, perhaps to do with the ego/personality {outer part of the wheel} has been 'deflated'. It may be you have gotten your feelings hurt recently, something to do with your husband?

    The second dreams seems to be dealing with the same subject. It even relates to the 'inner tire'. And deflation.

    I am probably circling what the actual experience the dream is trying to address but I would think there has been enough presented that you may recognize what that message may be. There may be actual actions by your husband that is involved but I sense the dream is speaking to some inner issues that may have to to do with the period of life stages.

    Are mid-life issues ganging upon you, including, it may seem, your husband? Your husband may represent masculine tendencies, perhaps anger or such, have taken 'control'.
