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.

    A man

    I usually don't remember my dreams and if I do, just small things, and this morning I actually remembered a lot and I want to know what the possible meanings are.

    It starts off in a really run-down city, I'm in a grocery store, shopping for food and the lights randomly shut off, and everyone just keeps going on with their business like it's normal, as do I. I finish buying my items and walk outside (it's night time) and I catch a glimpe of a really good-looking man, I am afraid of the man and I run back inside the store and run to the same cashier I had bought my items from telling her to show me where I can hide. She doesn't and the man comes up behind me and grabs my arm and I go with him to my house. He goes down into the basement. I stay in one room for a while thinking he fell asleep in the basement. I go downstairs to check, but I faintly hear him talking to someone on the phone, I look in through the crack of the door and he seems very secretive about it, so I go to the next room and pick up the phone and listen in on his conversation. He is conning an elderly man for his money. After he hangs up, I run back upstairs hoping he hadn't seen me or heard me. He comes up slowly and walks over to me grinning as I'm sitting on the couch. He lays down next to me, watching TV. Sometime later, I'm still sitting next to him absolutely terrified, he suddenly has a blanket, then he says to me he wants some, and hesitantly I begin to take my clothes off and we end up having sex...

    Re: A man

    Sergeyevna,
    The described condition of the city in your dream probably is a description of some aspect of your emotional life {run down}. Looking for food may be looking for emotional nourishment, which may indicate you are not getting the full requirement of love, attention and acceptance in your life.

    The man that you are afraid of and are trying to hide from could be an actual waking experience. There may be deep unconscious elements to this male aspect in your life aspect {basement}.

    The rest of the dream and the description of the man and his actions. Does this fit with someone you know in your waking life. The covering up may suggest a desire to block emotional experiences. The sex part may be symbolic of a need for love, or it may be straight forward about having sex.

    What is your relationship with your father like? The sex may be love as I mentioned and there may lie the emotional nourishment you seek. If it is deeper than that {the sex part} then those issues not only need resolving but need 'investigation' by proper authorities.

    Let's hope it is emotional nourishment that the dream is describing.

    Re: A man

    Looking for emotional nourishment does sound pretty correct, as I've been feeling pretty worthless for numerous reasons.

    I can't think of a waking element that may be relevant to the man, although there might be. Perhaps the guy my mom is dating right now... I really don't like him for unknown reasons. I just get a strange feeling when I'm around him.

    I don't have a father, he died when I was only 1. So nothing wrong there. Though I do see my older brothers as semi-father figures, though I don't know how they would fit in.

    Re: A man

    Sergeyevna,
    The emotional nourishment seems to be fairly obvious in the dream. Your senses about your mother's guy could be the man in your dream. The strange feelings you have about him could fit with the dream. At your age waking experiences can be magnified to reflect intuitive impressions. Taking your clothes off make symbolize revealing true feelings, not for him but for the nourishment we established. The sex could merely represent integration of contrasting emotions about men in your mother's life as it has to do with the nourishment of being a family. Hard to pin down exactly what a 16 year old may be feeling.

    Re: A man

    That sounds correct,I am kind of hesitant to let another person into our family after living so long with just my mom, my brothers, and me.
    Thank you for the interpretation. ^o^

    Also, it is quite hard to pin down what a 16 year old is feeling... my mind is definitely all over the place.

    Re: A man

    Sergeyevna,
    Thanks for the follow-up remarks. Although your mind may be 'all over the place', something that is usual for someone your age, the intuitive thinking I mentioned seems to fit your personality. Not many 16 year olds would recognize the association of the 'man' in a dream to family nourishment. I encourage everyone to recognize that '6th' sense that nature has provided. You seem to have a 'heads up' approach about this important quality that nature provides to the human psyche.

    Sergeyevna,
    I am getting an unusual number of dream requests from younger people and would like to determine if possible the source that led you to my Dream Forum. Could you provide the source or reason how you happened upon my site?

    Re: A man

    I try to interpret my own dreams by using symbol meanings from a site I found by googling "dream interpretations" but for this last one, there were many symbols I could not figure out, so I looked throughout more of the things that popped up when googling "dream interpretations" and this website was there.

    That's how I got here... I don't know if it is exactly relevant to the uprisal of younger people being here.

    Sergeyevna,
    Thanks for your reply. I all of a sudden had an influx of younger people posting dreams and I wanted to know if there was a particular reason. Seems as if most came here by 'Googling'.
