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.

    DREAM of spa

    Gerard....
    I don't know what the subject of this dream is...I want to think it is part of a series of dreams...about my desire to "follow my bliss" full time...(i don't want to give any more background..in case I'm off track)



    DREAM

    In this dream, I was with my friend D. (an animal communicator...which I thought was interesting....since I dreamed I was mrs. doolittle last time)....

    We go to a big fancy hotel..we are going to have a spa day. But the walk in closet in our room is filled with a man (and a boys) clothing...all greens and blues cotton and made in France.

    I am worried because I think this man must have been murdered to leave his clothing behind..... I also find his wallet (can see some paper money hanging out) and his credit card.

    I am very worried and sure he is dead. But someone (a maid) says he has moved out to let us have this room..for the spa night..which is a special the hotel is having.

    I see my friend D. has brought lots of clothes which I think are just like mine..and they are "camoflauge" and also, I note mostly greens..and maybe light bamboo colors? She has also packed beautiful soaps and lotions for the spa experience... We are going to take some steam sauna..i think..

    Then the missing man's (French man) wife calls the room...She asks "who are you?" She thinks I am staying with her husband..and having an affair with him. I try to get her to call the hotel..lobby..and have him paged..I explain he is sleeping on the couch. She asks me how long he intends to stay at this hotel. I have no idea..and wonder still if he is dead. (i never see him in the dream)

    then...I remember my other friend C. comes
    (in real life..she is obsessive compulsive..and always restless...and she is very impulsive)..She is actually always buying houses...realizing she has made a mistake and trying to get out of the deal..She can never go through with anything....or make decisions....)

    My niece and /or my friend D. are upset she is coming...She is coming to look at Craftsman houses (a Three bedroom)....I am afraid she will buy my house? I feel bad she is coming......

    Lucy,
    I will take a good look at your dream in the morning. I'll do better at seeing what the dream symbols may be saying after a good night's rest. And my own dreamtime.

    Re: DREAM of spa

    Lucy,
    The hotel often represents a transition in life and the spa would be that place for healing. It is that human side that needs attention and communicating between that self and the Greater Self may be the task before you.

    The closet is where you store things. Perhaps the man and boys clothes represent storing old masculine aspects, aspects in your transition {France}.

    The money and credit cards are material items that the 'self' possesses. This may be the aspect that needs to be murdered.

    This part of you that you were sure was dead is in fact 'left the room' {could this be social duty?}. Unconsciously it is still seeking renewal {night spa}, the masculine aspects of social duty {or patriarchy}.

    Your true natural Self is being 'camoflauged'. But that true aspect has such a beautiful 'fragrance' and let's you escape the negatives in your life {as creativity often does".

    You are at a point where you are asking, 'who am I'. The masculine in your dream is probably addressing two aspects, one negative and the other a positive {social duty and the masculine qualities to persevere}. The latter is not seen in your dream or at least it seems}.

    C may be something you are afraid of becoming {in a lesser light}. Restless and compulsive, qualities of the self and not the Self. You find it hard to make decisions and carry through with projects.

    There is that fear you are regressing to the old self. Could this be the decision process of doing it for money or doing it for the creative spirit? The dream does seem to be addressing those issues that get in the way of 'following your bliss'.

    Re: DREAM of spa

    your interpretations are very insightful...but sometimes hard for me to SEE..., which is why I guess my Self..is trying to show the way with the dreams...I do feel rather trapped....afraid to go forward...afraid of regressing...at times...it seems crystal clear...and then i lose the illumination....i was wondering why the colors in my dreams seem so important..? I guess I am mainly trapped by fear....leaving behind the Money....scares me I guess....
    very interesting....I don't know how you do this every day...it seems it would be quite draining..at times. Thank you so much...
