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.

    matthew,
    all of the above {what you listed about dreams} and more. Dreams do have meaning. The science is proven and Jungian psyche has provided us with the tools to understand dreams. But instead of me trying to provide a long and detailed lesson on dreams I will direct you to my page A Simple Guide to Dreams. Then if you are 'smart' enough you will investigate further into my other pages about dreams and the psyche. In a few years {starting at about 40-the beginning of mid-life 'crazies'} there will be a need for tools to help sort through the baggage you will and have accumulated in your life. Dreams can be a great source of unconscious contents that need addressing in later life {if not your present waking life}.

    Do you dare venture into the unconscious world of dreams? Or are you one of those who 'say it scares them'?

    Re: Do the dreams mean anything!!!!

    There are two faces to it…some believe and some do not. Everyone has his own story. But I feel that the dreams are somewhat a part of our life and they do convey a message. Like I had a dream of going on jogging and I was continuously jogging ….and the dream broke. And when I had the dream analysis I found that it meant my motivation was becoming higher and when I put it in my life…its true. I am feeling motivated with the things around i.e. to be more hard-working and achieve something.

    Calvin,
    Dreams reflect your life, at the time you have the dream. That includes where you are in the present and all that you bring forth from the past that still affects your emotional life. Dreams do not normally predict the future but they do compensate the conscious mind what the unconscious psyche already knows. If in fact there is a need to 'motivate' yourself your dreams will reflect that, using the language of symbols and metaphor. And if the interpretation fits your waking life then there is a good bet it is a correct interpretation.
