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.

    for 5 years now....

    Hi, I need help understanding my dreams. I have been dreaming about my ex husband(who is a terrific man) for about 5 years now. Every since we signed divorce papers. They all vary but still have something to do with him. One I had I flew to Germany and made him breakfast and he said your plane is gonna leave, so he handed me a letter and I got on the plane. Others consist of him dying and I just keep searching for him. Lately I have been dreaming that I just follow him around talkin and talkin but he doesn't say anything to me, but the next night I had a dream that we were intimate and we were sooo happy. Even once I had a dream that it was me, him, and my new boyfriend all in the same room but me and my ex were together and my new boyfriend didn't care like we were never together.I just don't know why I'm having all these dreams 3-4 times a week... Please help me understand them! Christina

    hi,
    dreams usually deal with things you don't know or things you ought to know about ,your inner and outer world ,relationships etc,
    this dream could be bringing to your attention the comparisons you may be making between your ex and your new boyfriend ,
    of which, you may be unaware of the influence these repressed feelings(the unlived life) for your ex are having on your present relationship,
    is your current relationship suffering somehow because of comparisons with your ex,who in your own words ,you descibed as a terrific man,will anybody live up to his standards?
    i may be off the mark,as only you can truly interpret your own dreams by relating them to personal events,
    but i hope my thoughts start the ball rolling for you,
    regards cavebear

    Cavebear,
    No, I don't think anyone will ever live up to the standards of my ex, I'm sure my now relationship suffers alot bc I miss my ex and believe he was my true love. But I don't try to compare them bc they are really different and great in their own ways. Maybe I dream about him so much bc I want him back in my life and I think the only way that is going to happen is through a dream......Christina

    hi,
    i think you have the answer,
    your feelings towards your ex are still strong as you have stated yourself,and wishfulfillment in dreams is a way for unlived aspects to be experienced,
    sometimes if things are not going to well though,
    we retreat back into the womb,or the cave,or the memories of a past relationship that gives us some sort of security,comfort, and balance.
    it may be that you have repressed feelings about your current relationship,and are trying to escape from those,
    the dream then may be trying to get your attention by stating that you are currently not happy.
    by using the comparisons with your ex,
    dreams that repeat,are usually refering to unresloved issues,
    i hope this is of help,
