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.

    Apocolyptic + weird hike (semi-nightmareish)

    2 different dreams I'd love help with..

    the first is a reoccuring nightmare where I am driving home on the interstate and all of a sudden a crowd of thousands and thousands of terrified people are running at me from the direction I am traveling. I get out of the car and have to face the fact that there is nothing I can do but join in the terrified mass of people. I felt very powerless and like the protective bubble of my car was no match for what was coming, but I never could see what the people were so afraid of..

    later in the dream, we are all stranded by the road and army trucks are driving by..I felt like cattle.
    Buttttt the people that were standing around took it like it was a big party, and even in the midst of a crisis, everyone was still concerned with their relationships with one another in social settings and the way they looked. it was sad.

    --------------------
    the one i had last night, I was climbing this really steep mountain, so steep that I ended up on my hands and knees in gravel trying to make it to the top and it got steeper by the foot.

    there was a creepy man at the top that was walking somewhere nearby and saw me struggling. He reached his hand out but when he was helping me he seemed like he wanted to let me go more than help me. his grip was weak and he wasn't pulling very hard, so I helped myself help him...

    I got to the top and there were different directions I could go but there was a bizzare little clearing with some type of community inside. It ended up being a place where they steal children..a cult like place and as I stepped inside, they locked the door behind me. I knew what was going on so I immediately went to the bathroom and climbed out the window, i had to go all the way back down the cliff and this time it was a straight WALL. There ended up being chunks of shredded white cheddar cheese helping my grip..maybe i was hungry.

    The first dream seems to be addressing emotions of despair, a lack of individuality, a feeling of not belonging. On the outside there is a facade covering up inner conflicts of the emotions.

    The second dream seems to also be addressing emotional distress. The emotions may be overwhelming at times. You may feel there is no way to turn for help and you are not able to help yourself emotionally.

    Are there childhood issues in your life? The dream may be addressing a 'stolen' childhood, perhaps not receiving the proper love and acceptance as a child. Are there repressed emotions? You may be experiencing destructive impulses because of past experiences.

    Does this describe your life?

    Re: Apocolyptic + weird hike (semi-nightmareish)

    I think my childhood were actually the best years of my life. I had a really good one.

    My adult life is filled with despair. *shrug*

    And yes, i feel like there's nothing I can do about it.

    BUT none of it is that bad. I don't wanna go all emo on here.

    thanks for your help!

    Rachael.
    Your feelings of 'despair' need not be so traumatic that it adversely affects your life. The day to day routine that 'plays' on you, the stress from that is what the dream may be addressing. As for your childhood, I asked that question in case there was something deeper to consider.

    The feeling that you can not do anything about your situation. That could add to the despair you are feeling. There are reasons you sometimes feel 'like cattle'. Is there not any way to break away from the herd or is your 'lack of individuality' a barrier? Perhaps working on the inner self may help. That is what Jungian pysche is about, the inner life.
