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.

    Custody....?

    This lady had custody of Celine (she's about 8 and she's sort of related to me. My mom, my sister and me knew that the lady who had custody of her was hurting her. So I think we were waiting on some guy to tell us if we got custody of her and the guy comes in and he said that we have custody of her. So we take her home and my sistr starts taking her a bath and I go to my sister's room to get clothes for celine. I found her some khaki shorts and a strip blue and white shirt. So I help her get dress and my mom comes in, who's getting ready to go out and my mom isn't all there, like in her head and I knew that and she says." I don't think I should go. what if they get her back" and Celine gets on my lap and hugs me and I look at my mom as if I was saying " See what you did" and thats it. What does this mean??

    Marie,
    Before I attempt to interpret your dreams {this one and the vampire dream} can you give me some personal info about 'Celine'? is she a real person or a symbolic dream person? Going back to your Fire dream {so adeptly interpreted by Julz} I can see 'feelings of frustration'. Perhaps we are dealing with those same issues. But I need to determine if Cline is a real person.

    Note: Dreams of younger people usually differ to those of an older adult in that a younger person's dreams are focused more on current waking experiences whereas an older person would be focusing more on the past. This is the reason I need to know if a person is real or symbolic.

    Marie,
    Since 'Celine' is 'kinda' related to you in the dream then there is that suggestion you are having 'related' emotions that she experienced. That association probably has to do with some aspect of your relationship with your mother. It may be something recent, an experience that isn't serious, or could be the whole relationship with her. Does she {mother} sometimes act 'as if she isn't all there'? Celine would be you.

    The custody part of the dream. Is that symbolic {possession of who you are} or is it real?

    Yeah my mother does act as if she is not all there. Well the custody part isn't really going on and I guess it could be me now that i think about it.
