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.

    Large Boat

    My Guy Friend and I were sitting at an outside Cafe having lunch--it was located on a Finger of a Lake with houses, boat docks and boats parked at the docks.
    An extremely large wood boat came in and I commented that it would never have enough room to turn around and was going to have to back out--It turned around and hit several boats pushing several out of the water-the water had been calm when the boat came into the cove but when turning quickly it caused some wakes--When it passed us I noticed that their was a police boat coming out of a boathouse across the way with the sirens on and going after the large wood boat--I then woke

    Re: Large Boat

    the main feeling was how large the boat was and that it wasn't going to make it--when it started to turn i remember thinking--it is going to make it--to my surprise--but it didn't it hit a smaller boat and the hit boat shattered as it went on land with a large hole in the bottom

    Re: Large Boat

    Peggy,
    Boats float in water and thus often symbolize different emotions. Have you recently been confronted with an emotional decision, something major in your life {large boat pushing the small boats out of the way} and may be thinking about 'backing out' of it because of fears 'damaging' lesser aspects in your life? There may be feelings you can not make it emotionally but if you try, perhaps there will not be the damage you thought there would be.

    Make any sense to your life?

    Re: Large Boat

    Peggy,
    If it is a 'large' decision in your life, as most decisions are when considering changing jobs, then the large boat could very well fit with that. Boats take you to 'new shores' in life. In every major decision there are 'wakes' and 'policing' of the decisions under consideration. Dreams are a part of that process, taking the data and unconsciously considering the possibilities. The dream may not offer you advice to exactly what you should do but they do offer up what your emotional state is toward the possibilities.

    Have you decided whether to make the changes? Your dreams may at first present conflicting views of the decision but that would be normal. Changes are always difficult and stressful and your dreams are merely reflecting that. Such dreams do not necessarily mean you made the wrong decision, it would reflect the stress of the changes.
