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.

    Top gear

    I had a dream last ngiht where I was James May from top gear (a british car esq programme). There were two parts to the dream, but I only remember the second, the first being about how I (as James) got two children (a boy and girl, both about 7, the girl with long blonde hair, The boy with short brown hair, both quite short and skinny). I think I adopted them though a competition, but I'm not sure.

    In the second part, like in top gear, we're (the other presenters and I are) having one of the kind of competitions (in the programe usually racing). In this one however, I'm with my children (they both seem very happy (I'm quite happy too) though the challenge is pretty dangerous-life threatening)) On a leaky submarine type boat ish. The submarine is mostly brown in colour (low lighting) and pretty dirty, and there are banisters here and there. I only stay in one room, while my children run around playing, untill I've started figuring out how to get them out.

    There's a lady with us, slim, with dark hair, sort've like their nanny. She tells me what we need to send my children out because they're the only ones who can escape, and to do so, they'll have to swim down a vertical kind of chute (like air vents you see in the movies), only it's quite long and filled with water.

    We suddenly know we HAVE to send my son down first. Though, I have this nagging thought in my head that he'll die, and I keep on imagining myself as the boy, travelling down the chute, and how I'd rather do pretty much anything than that. The lady talks about how he'll probably die, because the chute is too thin for him to be able to move much. But we're both still happy, pretty much unnaffected by the situation. It's like something as trivial as what programe to watch on tv when you're not fussed about the choice.

    The boy seems to be the only one whos starting to 'wake up' (it seemed a bit like that in the dream), as I begin to dunk him in the chute. I keep on holing onto him, hugging him from behind, but still it feels like it's all okay. He starts to get a little concerned 'will I be okay?...I don't want to die...the waters cold' But he's not freaking out.

    The dream ends there and I still haven't let go.

    Re: Top gear

    Since the dream is about cars perhaps it is addressing what is 'driving you', what aspects/attitudes currently in your waking life that are now prevalent. That could be a masculine thing {James May}, those masculine qualities needed to succeed. The children could represent a need for balance yin/yang}. Perhaps you have recently used too much 'masculine' attitudes and not balancing your psyche with the feminine.

    The second part of the dream may be informing us of what those masculine attributes may be. Competition! Perhaps you have ignored those 'balancing 'qualities you possess {again yin/yang-masculine/feminine balance} and need to retrieve those aspects so to gain psyche balance.

    The nanny. This may be that mature feminine quality {this may be a statement about your personality-do you consider yourself mature for your age?} that usually guides you in your waking life. She knows how to bring about balance {children-they're the only ones who can escape} needed to balance the yin/yang within you.

    The first thing you may need to do is to quite the 'too fast developing' competitive nature that may be consuming you in your waking life {we HAVE to send my son down first}. You do not want this 'competitive' thing to be what defines who you are.

    But everyone has a masculine aspect {as well as a feminine} and you do not, and can not, fully 'kill' that aspect off. But you can control it so it doesn't become consuming {competitiveness}.

    Has there been situations in your waking life of recent that requires you to be 'too competitive'? This would probably be some experience which is counter to your true nature {not really a competitive person}. Look at the past several days and see where this 'masculine' aspect may fit. I believe the dream is addressing masculine aspects that are not of your true nature and a need to return to a more balance identity {yin/yang, a balanced masculine/feminine attitude with the 'mature feminine' taking the lead}.
